The women’s Heat volleyball is off to a decent start this 2019/20 season. The women started the season on October 18 with a loss to Regina. Fortunately, the next day they bounced back with a dominating 3-0 win. The women’s team has since maintained a .500 record in the first 10 games: winning 5 and losing 5.

After the first 10 games, the Heat are in 8th place out of 13 teams in the Canada West standings. Only the top 8 teams make it to the playoffs, so the Heat need to sustain or improve their current standings if they are to make the cut.

The regular season ends in February so there is still lots of time for the women’s team to rise or fall in the standings. Last season the Heat went 2-22 for the season. This record left the team with a devastating last place finish in the Pacific West, however, things are looking promising in 2019 so far.

Still, 14 games remain for the 2019/20 season and already the Heat have improved greatly over the previous year. The next few games take place on November 29 and 30 in Brandon, Manitoba. After the winter break, the Heat will return home for January 10 and 11 versus Winnipeg.

Only time will tell if the women’s Heat will make the playoffs — good luck to the team!
