Sea-Hawks to compete at Acadia this weekend

The Memorial women’s volleyball team will travel to Wolfville this weekend for a pair of games against the Acadia Axewomen. The games will be the first time the teams have met since the 2011-12 season as last year’s games were cancelled due to weather on the final weekend of the regular season.
