As part of this weekend’s Alumni Weekend festivities, football and volleyball are hosting significant conference home games. In addition, the lacrosse team will also be playing its first game of the year in its annual alumni game.
The sporting events begin with a football game 1:00 p.m. on Saturday as the Defenders look for their first win of the year against Briar Cliff. The Briar Cliff Chargers are also in search of its first victory of the season after dropping contests to Doane, Graceland University, Dakota Wesleyan and Hastings. Dordt looks to get on the winning side of things after dropping contests to Waldrof, Hastings, Midland, and Concordia.
Immediately following the football game, the lacrosse team will be playing its annual alumni game, pitting current players against past. Game time is set for 4:00 p.m. on the soccer field near the softball diamonds, just north of the football field.
At 5:00 p.m., the women’s volleyball team takes on Doane in this season’s first “black-out” match of the season. The Defender women have won their last six matches and look to continue that trend in an important conference match.
