Rookie Megan Beckett of Reynolds led the Chargers as the outside-hitter tallied 16 offensive points with 12 kills and four aces on Saturday. The Chargers won in three straight sets, 25-22, 25-22, 25-12.

Beckett led the Chargers with 13 points (11 kills, one block, one ace) in the Chargers’ sweep of CBC on Friday.

The men’s match up with the Bearcats was closer, but yielded the same result, as the Chargers won in a combined six-straight sets, climbing to an even 3-3 in the men’s standings.

This weekend the Chargers visit Cranbrook against the College of the Rockies Avalanche.
