Before our men’s basketball and volleyball teams could enjoy turkey on Thanksgiving Weekend, one team headed out west for a pair of exhibition games in Alberta while another hosted their annual tournament.
The men’s volleyball team started their 2017/18 season strong finishing 2nd at their annual Thanksgiving Exhibition tournament. In the round robin portion they defeated USB 2-0 (25-22, 25-23), ACC (25-15,25-22), PUC(25-23, 26-24) and a loss to CMU (25-15, 25-14). They fell short in the tournament final to CMU (25-21, 25-20). The tournament was a great start to the year for first year coach Lindsey Habib and the Rebels open their regular season November 4th on the road at CMU.
The men’s basketball team continued their exhibition schedule out in Alberta with a pair of games against ACAC teams on the weekend. On Friday, the Rebels fell to Olds College 107-90. The Rebels then fell to Ambrose College 106-91 in a rematch from last week. The Rebels start their NIAC schedule on November 4th in Cass Lake MN against Leech Lake.
