Due to weather concerns, the format of the EMU men's volleyball season opener has changed, with the Royals now hosting a doubleheader against Elms College on Saturday. Match times are set for 11:00am and 1:30pm in Yoder Arena.
The day had originally been scheduled as a tri-match, with Messiah College also joining the two teams. However, the Falcons decided to not travel this weekend with Winter Storm Harper bearing down. Elms, located in Chicopee, Mass., is already in Virginia to play Southern Virginia University Friday night. Elms is ranked No. 15 in the AVCA Preseason Poll.
