Mennonite Educational Institute is playing host to a CIS men’s volleyball exhibition game tonight (Thursday, Oct. 4).
The two-time defending national champion Trinity Western Spartans will take on the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack at 8 p.m. at MEI Middle School. Both rosters feature local talent – Trinity Western’s Steve Marshall, John Wiebe and Tyler Koslowsky are MEI grads, while Brad Kufske attended Yale Secondary. Across the net is another MEI product, Matt Krueger of the WolfPack.
Tickets are on sale at the door, and cost $5 for adults and $3 for students. Teams will be admitted for $30 (including a coach and up to 15 players) and kids 10 and under are free.
• On Oct. 15, the Spartans play a second game in Abbotsford, as they face the UBC Thunderbirds at Yale Secondary (7 p.m. start). UBC libero Ian Perry is a Yale grad.
