With fall fast approaching, the busy time of TRU athletics is upon us: the soccer, volleyball, basketball, and baseball teams were all in action in the past week.
After a bye week last week, the men’s soccer team dropped both games they played down on the coast this weekend, falling 2–0 to UBC and 5–1 to UVIC. The women’s soccer team played their home opening games at Hillside Stadium this past weekend and lost both, falling 3–0 and 4–0 to UVic and UBC respectively.
Men’s volleyball continued their pre-season schedule as they headed to Edmonton for an exhibition tournament. They would end the tournament with one win and four losses, with the lone win coming against Lethbridge College. The women’s volleyball team dropped the only game they played, as they were beaten in straight sets at the Tournament Capital Centre by UBCO.
Women’s basketball split a pair of exhibition games against the University of Calgary, losing the first game 98–57 before rebounding with a one point win Saturday night taking the game 74–73.
And finally the baseball team had a busy week, recording one win and five losses in the six games that they played. The Pack split a pair of games against the Fraser Valley Collegiate Group midweek before losing all four that they played against UBC this weekend.
