Both soccer teams have the upcoming weekend off, returning to action on the 15th at Providence.
The Rebels Volleyball teams were also busy with non league play this weekend. The women’s team competed in an exhibition tournament at PUC, losing to CMU and the ACC Cougars but gaining valuable experience for the upcoming season.
The men’s team did not see any court action, but deserve congratulations none the less. As a team bonding outing, they took part in the CIBC Run for the Cure raising $680 in the process. Excellent work men’s volleyball!
Coach Erik Hansen on the event ” We participated in the run for multiple reasons, bring us as a team closer together in a fun event outside the gym being a big one. The run represents a great cause, many of us having someone close to us battle breast cancer and we were all glad to help in even in a small way. Hopefully the athletes will remember things like that and continue to participate in similar events and fundraisers far beyond their time at Red River.”
They will now prepare to host the Rebels Invitational Exhibition Tournament this upcoming weekend, Oct 7 and 8. Staring at 6:30pm Friday night in the North and South Gyms.
