The Holland Hurricanes men’s and women’s volleyball teams return to the court this weekend when they host the St. Thomas Tommies on back-to-back days at the Holland College Centre for Community Engagement.

Saturday’s action will kick off at 4pm with the women’s game followed by the men’s game at 6pm.  Things will continue on Sunday with games at 12 and 2pm (W/M).

Through the opening portion of the schedule the women’s Hurricanes are 4-2 and in fourth place in the ACAA while STU is 6-2 and in a tie for second place.
