Women's volleyball

MORE BLOCKS THAN YOUR CHILDHOOD LEGO SET. We don’t mean those extravagant theme-based Lego sets, either. We’re talking the original building blocks in the big red plastic box. Man, those are old-school.

As playoffs approach, many Mustang teams are playing their final games of the regular season and battling to secure a spot in the postseason.

In men’s hockey, the Mustangs (16-6-2) visit the rival Lakehead Thunderwolves (13-9-2) in the final regular-season series. Upon return, Western will likely host its first bout of playoff action at the John Labatt Centre.

The women’s hockey team (8-9-1) hopes to extend its winning streak at home when it faces the talented Laurier Golden Hawks (17-2-2) at Thompson Arena. The puck drops Sunday at 4 p.m.

The men’s volleyball team (13-6) looks to rebound from Saturday’s loss to Laurier and beat the Windsor Lancers (8-11). The action happens at 7 p.m. Friday at Alumni Hall.

The women’s volleyball crew (16-1) hosts the Lakehead Thunderwolves (2-15) Saturday 7 p.m. at Alumni Hall. The match closes a stellar regular season for the ’Stangs.
