Mountaineer Varsity Highlights – November 12
Exhibition play is underway in basketball and volleyball and the Mountaineers had some great initial success. Of note, the women’s volleyball team defeated two Ontario University Athletics teams, Windsor and Western.
On November 13, Mountaineers cross country athletes will compete in the national championships.
And, off-court, the Men’s Volleyball team is participating in Movember. They have set a goal of collecting $5,000 to support men’s health. The team has already surpassed $1,000. If you want to help the team support this charity, you can donate on their team page.
