With an 11-3 record, the Bobcats women’s volleyball team has climbed from fourth to second in the CIS national rankings this week, just behind the No.1-ranked UBC Thunderbirds (14-0).

That sets up a clash between the top two teams in the nation this weekend in Vancouver when the Bobcats head west to tangle with the Thunderbirds on Friday and Saturday in Canada West conference action. The Bobcats will have to contend with Brandon native Lisa Barclay, a 6-foot-2 left side who leads the country in total points (246.5) and is second in the CIS in kills (212) for UBC.

The Bobcats will counter with Winnipegger Shanlee McLennan, who is ninth in the nation in points (208) and seventh in kills (181).

Meanwhile, back-to-back losses on the road dropped the Bobcats men’s volleyball team to 7-7 in Canada West and from fifth to seventh in the CIS rankings this week as they get ready to visit UBC.

The Bobcats men’s basketball team (4-8) and women’s basketball squad (3-9) are unranked as they prepare for a pair of CWUAA home games this Friday and Saturday against the Manitoba Bisons at the Healthy Living Centre.
