In their last home match of the 2018-2019 Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) women's volleyball season, the host Keyano College Huskies once again spiked off against the visiting Concordia University of Edmonton Thunder at the Syncrude Sport & Wellness Centre's Canadian Natural Gymnasium.
They had won Friday in four sets 25-15, 21-25, 25-21, 25-14.
Tears were shed as Huskies' head coach Nic Davies gave roses and framed photos to graduating players Alexa Ellis and Laura Popowich prior to the game.

Tears would soon lead to cheers as some early rallies highlighted the first set with Huskies' Faith Grant having a few kills and a dunkaroo or two with appreciation shown by a good Saturday afternoon crowd, including members of the local under 14 girls volleyball team.
