WALLA WALLA, Wash. -- This weekend's Northwest Conference soccer game between Whitman College and Whitworth University in Spokane, Wash., will be played on Saturday rather than Sunday.

The schedule change was made earlier this week at Whitworth's request. Saturday's game starts at 2:30 p.m.

The game marks the midway point in the NWC season for both teams.

In other Whitman sports action for the weekend, the women's volleyball team hosts Lewis & Clark on Friday (7 p.m.) and Willamette on Saturday (5 p.m.), and the women's soccer team welcomes Lewis & Clark to town at noon Sunday.
