The Vancouver Island University Mariners women's volleyball team won convincingly on Friday night, but head coach Shane Hyde was less than happy about the effort.
VIU (7-0; 21:3) defeated the Columbia Bible College Bearcats (0-5; 1:15) by a score of 3-0 (25-16; 25-14; 25-22) in Pacific Western Athletic Association volleyball play at VIU on Friday night.
Middle Tylar Turnbull led the Mariners with seven kills. Power Megan Groenendijk had six.
Jenna Pearce, Alyssa Wolf and Leanna Gildersleeve each had four serving aces. Megan Rosenlund had 10 digs for the Mariners.
While on paper the match appeared a good one, the team's coach was thoroughly disappointed.
"As a spectator, that was horrible volleyball," said Hyde. "I wouldn't pay money to watch that.
"Our ball control was terrible, way too many misserves - our service was the ugliest I've seen all year," he said. "That's not good enough from this program. .. We didn't bring any kind of energy."
The Mariners at times looked "invincible," only to drop a string of points by making offensive errors. Hyde said the root of the problem was unknown at this point, but "we'll be better."
The Mariners men (2-5; 11:17) also emerged with a win over CBC (2-3; 8:12) on Friday night, walking away with a 3-0 (25-22; 25-21; 30-28) victory.
