The Briercrest volleyball teams return to Caronport this weekend to host Olds while basketball travels to Calgary to face SAIT and hockey travels to Edmonton to face Grant MacEwan University. For timely information on all Briercrest teams this year "like" Briercrest Athletics on Facebook.


After enjoying a bye week, the Briercrest volleyball teams are back in action this weekend as they continue their charge towards the playoffs. This weekend will have playoff implications for three of the four teams.

The CCAA sixth-ranked Briercrest women's volleyball team (14-2) currently sits in second place in the ACAC South division two wins behind Red Deer College (16-2), but RDC has yet to have their second semester bye. CCAA 15-ranked Olds (10-8) sits four wins behind Briercrest in the standings and having played two games more than Briercrest and fourth place SAIT (9-7), they are feeling pressure to end a four game losing streak. This is sure to be an exciting weekend as both teams are trying to build momentum and maintain their place in the standing.

On the men's side Briercrest (8-8) currently sits outside of the playoff picture in fifth place. They are looking up at Lethbridge College (9-9), and having played two less games hold their own destiny in trying to make the playoffs. Olds (0-18) are looking for their first win of the season and have only won a set this year.

Game times are Friday, Jan. 30 at 6:00 (women) and 8:00 pm (men) and Saturday, Jan. 31 at 1:00 pm (women) and 3:00 pm (men). All games are at the Margaret P. Reimer Memorial Gymnasium.

Streaming of the games can be found at acac.tv.
