Lander opens PBC play, celebrates past 20 years of volleyball this weekend:

The Lander volleyball team hosts a pair of matches this weekend, beginning the Peach Belt Conference portion of its schedule against Francis Marion on Friday at 7:00 p.m. and battling Clark Atlant at home on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. Lander was originally scheduled to face UNC Pembroke at 1:00 p.m. and Clark Atlanta at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, but flooding from Hurricane Florence forced UNCP to postpone Saturday’s match.
