Volleyball

The Briercrest volleyball teams will be hosting Ambrose University this weekend for their final weekend of the regular season. They will be celebrating the careers of Mikayla Reinhardt and Carter Reimer Friday night as they will be graduating from Briercrest this Spring and will be playing their final games at the Margaret P. Reimer Memorial Gymnasium. This weekend will be about Bible college pride as the only team that is heading to the playoffs is the Briercrest women’s volleyball team. The Briercrest men’s team (9-13) is currently in fifth place in the ACAC South and are unable to qualify for the playoffs this season. They will be facing an Ambrose team (8-14) who are right behind them in the standings. The Briercrest women (18-4) have been in first place in the ACAC South all season, and hold their own destiny to hold on to that position. They face an Ambrose team (4-18) who are in second last place in the ACAC South and will be looking to play spoiler. A win over Ambrose will guarantee Briercrest first place in the ACAC South. It is sure to be an exciting end to the regular season!

Game times will be Friday at 6:00 pm for the women and 8:00 pm for the men, while Saturday game times are 1:00 pm and 3:00 pm respectively.
