The ACAC seventh-place Briercrest men's hockey team (6-20-4) will end the 2014-15 season by hosting eighth place Concordia (6-20-2) this weekend. Briercrest looks to have their best record since 2007-08 by sweeping Concordia this weekend. The hockey team then ends the season with a bye, while every other team in the ACAC has one more week of play.

This Friday will also serve as Seniors night as the hockey team recognizes graduating student-athletes Manny Schellenberg and Erik Robitaille.

The Briercrest basketball teams will host Lethbridge College for their final home games of the 2014-15 season this weekend.

This will be stiff competition for both basketball teams as the Lethbridge men are fighting for first place in the ACAC South division and the Lethbridge women have all but secured first place seeding.

Both Briercrest teams have played some good tight games against tough opponents this semester, but have been unable to get victory thus far in 2015.

Game times at the Margaret P. Reimer Memorial Gymnasium will be Friday, Feb. 20 at 6:00 pm for the women and 8:00 pm for the men, followed by 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm games Saturday, Feb. 21.

After sweeping Ambrose at home this past weekend, the Briercrest volleyball teams finish their regular season in Red Deer in what will be very important games to determine playoff spots.

The CCAA fifth-ranked Briercrest women's volleyball team (18-4) have secured second place in the ACAC South division, two wins behind Red Deer College (20-2). A sweep of CCAA top-ranked Red Deer would vault Briercrest into first in the ACAC South division.

On the men's side, Briercrest (13-9) currently sits in third place in the ACAC South trying to hold off threats at fourth and fifth place. They are looking down at Lethbridge College (13-9), who end their regular season against winless Olds this weekend, and SAIT (12-10) who play ACAC South second place Medicine Hat (17-5) this weekend. SAIT holds the tie-breaker versus Briercrest, so Briercrest must match win-for-win with SAIT this weekend while facing ACAC South first-place and CCAA seond-ranked Red Deer College (19-3) this weekend.

Game times are Friday, Feb. 20 at 6:00 (women) and 8:00 pm (men) and Saturday, Feb. 21 at 1:00 pm (women) and 3:00 pm (men). All games are at Red Deer College.
