Women's volleyall and the Lethbridge Kodiaks played each other in a well-played volleyball game with Briercrest winning in four sets.

The start of the first set was a tight back and forth game between the two teams. However, Briercrest pulled ahead halfway into the set and took the Kodiaks all the way to 21-13 until Lethbridge called a timeout. However, this could not kill Briercrest's momentum and ran the Kodiaks to the ground with a 25-13 score.

In the second set, Briercrest dominated the set with the whole team contributing to winning it 25-17. In the third set, the Kodiaks picked up the pace, taking Briercrest to 21-23. After Briercrest called a timeout they could not come back, and the Kodiaks won the set 21-25, pushing the match to another set.

In what would be the last set of play, the Kodiaks attempted to keep the momentum they gained from the third which they accomplished at the start of the set. However, Briercrest pulled ahead at the end and won the set 25-19. The final score was 25-13 / 25-17 / 21-25 and 25-19.

Player of the game for the Clippers was #12 Faith Buhler with 4 digs and 7 kills who expressed after the match, "it was really awesome, the unity on the court and the energy we had was amazing!”
