(WINDSOR, ON) – The Windsor Lancers salvaged the weekend and registered their first win of the season by splitting a home series against Queen’s and Royal Military College. After dropping Saturday’s meeting to the Gaels 3-1, the Lancers rebounded against RMC 3-0.

Windsor fell in the first two sets by identical scores of 25-21 to Queen’s, but rallied to win the 3rd 27-25. The Lancers couldn’t sustain the effort losing the 4th match, and the series, again by 25-21.
