Canada starts strong

Both the Canadian men’s and women’s volleyball teams opened their world championship qualifiers on a winning note on Friday in Mississauga, Ont.

The Canadian men, ranked 11th in the world, got nine kills from Rivers’ Toon Van Lankvelt as they swept Panama 3-0 (25-17, 25-12, 25-18). Brandonite Dustin Schneider was the team’s setter for the entire match and he fed the ball a lot to Gavin Schmitt, who paced the squad with 14 kills, three blocks and an ace.

Canada closes out the round robin with matches against Trinidad and Tobago today and Costa Rica on Sunday. The top two teams in the pool will meet in Monday’s final, with the winner advancing to the men’s world championship in Poland.

Meanwhile, in the women’s world championship qualifier, Dauphin’s Tabi Love had 10 kills, two aces and two blocks as Canada dominated Jamaica 3-0 (25-9, 25-10, 25-9). Brandonite Lisa Barclay will not play in the qualifiers. She was not named to the travelling roster after missing training sessions due to exams at the University of British Columbia.

Canada, ranked 20th in the world, wraps up the round robin with matches against Mexico today and the U.S. Virgin Islands on Sunday. The top two teams after the round robin will meet in Monday’s final, with the winner advancing to the women’s world championship in Italy.
