The Briercrest women's volleyball team (18-6) are at Olds College for the ACAC championships this week. They begin the festivities tonight with the ACAC Awards Banquet. As the second ranked team in the ACAC south they face ACAC south King's (17-7) at 1:00 pm (MT) in what is sure to be an exciting game. The winner of that game will paly the winner of GPRC (18-6) and SAIT (14-10) at 6:00 pm on Friday, Feb. 27, with the winner of that game qualifying for the ACAC gold medal game (3:30 pm Saturday, Feb. 28). Both teams in the gold medal game qualify for th CCAA national championship at Édouard-Montpetit in Longueuil, QC March 11-14. Briercrest won the only meeting between the two teams 3-2 (25-19, 20-25, 25-19, 22-25, 13-15) in exhibition play earlier this year.

On the men's side, Briercrest (13-11) lost their final two games against Red Deer College and finished tied for fourth in the ACAC South with SAIT, but SAIT held the tie breaker, so Briercrest is left on the outside of the playoff picture this year
