The first PACWEST women’s quarterfinal takes place at 1:00pm on Thursday when the #3 Capilano Blues face the #6 seeded Camosun Chargers. Blues are trying to avenge a semi-final loss in last year’s PACWEST volleyball championship, while the Chargers look to win their way into the Nationals, rather than be "just" the host seed.
