COVID cancels volleyball matches

SVSU will have to wait to continue its 9-1 start to the season as its two matches this week were canceled due to COVID issues.

Saginaw Valley was scheduled to play two Great Lakes Intercollegiate Conference (GLIAC) matches this week, but both will be moved to later dates.

Sept. 24 was scheduled to be an away game in Indiana to face Purdue Northwest and Sept. 25 was supposed to be an away match in Wisconsin against Parkside.

Head coach Will Stanton hopes to see more SVSU students at games when the cardinals return home.

“The fan capacity varies by facility, but most places are limiting to 50 percent of capacity,” Stanton said. “But we are still very happy to have spectators in seats and someone to play for; we really enjoyed having the fans in the stands last weekend with our home matches and it helped with our Team’s energy and momentum. It would be great to continue to have that support in two weeks when we play Oct. 8, 9, 10 at Home.”

Stanton knows the upcoming matches will be important for his team to be healthy and play well.

“We have several exciting matches in the next few weeks that should be fun to watch. We are on the road next weekend in the UP with matches against Michigan Tech that looks to be one of the best in the Conference again,” Stanton said. “Northern Michigan that won the Conference Tournament at SVSU last year. The next weekend we have three matches at home vs GVSU, Ferris State and Davenport. Those are always exciting matches with a lot on the line for the Conference Standings.”

SVSU will hope to continue their season on Oct. 1 at Northern Michigan and Oct. 2 at Michigan Tech for its next GLIAC matches.
