Tommies Open 2018 with Wins at UNBSJ Invitational

The St. Thomas University Tommies were a perfect 3-0 at the UNBSJ Invitational on Wednesday, topping UPEI, the U18 Spartans, and UNBSJ.

Tommies head coach Don McKay said the tournament was "a chance to get a few games in before league play resumes this weekend."

The STU squad, which sits in a tie for second place in the conference standings, bested UPEI two sets to one (25-14, 24-26, and 15-13) in their opening match.

They followed that up with a two-set win over the U18 Spartans (25-12, 25-18) and ended the invitational with a two sets to one victory over host UNBSJ (25-21, 25-27, 15-7).

The Tommies resume ACAA league play this weekend when they travel to Charlottetown to take on the Holland College Hurricanes.
