The Rebels teams competed in their final MCAC games of 2016 this weekend, wrapping up the first half of the schedule.
The men’s volleyball team captured their first victory of the season, defeating USB in a five set thriller 3-2 (20-25,25-18,19-25,25-20,15-11). The win keeps the Rebels thin playoff hopes alive, and provided a most needed confidence boost going to into the holiday break. The women’s team however was unable to end 2016 with a win, falling to USB 3-1 (17-25,25-16,25-23,25-13). However, they are sitting in 3rd place with a 5-6 record, ready to make a run at the playoffs, a place they haven’t been in over 3 years.
For men’s basketball, the drum beats on, defeating U of Winnipeg 77-62. They remain undefeated in league play with a 6-0 record and on their way to defending their MCAC crown, for the 9th consecutive time. The women’s team provided a Sunday sweep of the Wesmen, 78-33. The Rebels look to make a run at the league leading CMU Blazers in the new year with a full roster of players.
