Region X NCAA AQ's

Amer. SW:  UT-Dallas
Northwest:  Whitworth
SCIAC:  CMS

SCAC:  TBD

Good chance SW-TX is in. Colorado College is on the bubble. Mary Hardin Baylor may be one of the last 4 in (weak SOS and only 1 match played against a regionally ranked opponent, --which the Cru won)
Update: 

SCAC:  Trinity-TX gets the AQ.

Gotta say I don't understand Southwestern getting ranked in front of Colorado, who beat them 2 out of 3 times in H2H and have five more wins and the same number of losses.  A difference of .018 in SOS isn't terribly significant when taken in conjunction with those two things, not to mention CC's 8-4 vRRO to SW's 4-5.

#14 Southwestern loses 3-1 to #12 Berry in the second round after defeating W&L 3-1 in the first round.

#11 Colorado College faces #4 Wartburg (28-0) after defeating #16 ONU 3-1 in the first round.

Trinity showed its disdain for the NCAA shipping them to New Jersey (and to a regional where they got the #2 seed) by dismantling first-time NCAA participant Cedar Crest (20-5) 25-9, -8, -13.  The Tigers, who hit a blistering .427 while holding the Falcons to -.076, face Middlebury (20-5) who upset (#3 seed) host Stevens 3-1.  That winner likely faces #10 NYU (27-1) for the right to travel to St. Louis.

CMS also gets in the Elite  8 after coming back from 2 sets down to stun Wartburg on the Knights' home court in 5 sets!

Finals seedings are up and there will be a CMS-TU rematch if both win their opening match.  #2 CMS (30-1, loss to Calvin) faces #7 Berry (28-2, losses to Birmingham-Southern and Emory) while #3 Trinity (34-2, losses to CMS and Tufts) plays #6 Calvin (30-3, losses to Augsberg and Hope (2x)). 

On the other side of the bracket, you have #1 Juniata (30-1, loss to Johns Hopkins in the second match of the season) vs #8 MIT (29-3, losses to Trinity(TX), Williams, Babson) and #4 UW-Eau Claire (losses to Wartburg, St. Norbert, Hope) vs #5 Tufts (21-5, IMO should be #7 or #8 instead of #5, losses to Wesleyan x 2, Springfield, Endicott, Williams).   Guess beating Trinity on the finale of their New England swing of four matches at four different schools in 30 hours (in a 19-17 fifth set) got them a bump. 

Did not see that season-long and undefeated for years #1 Johns Hopkins went down 3-1 to Tufts in their regional final, which should make for an interesting finals.

Narrator:  but it was not meant to be.

CMS upheld their part of the bargain with a 3-1 victory over Berry, but Trinity could not hold a 2-1 lead, as Calvin came from behind to win 25-20, 19-25, 18-25, 25-19, 15-10.  The Knights were led by an insane 29 kills by Heidi Westra.  Trinity graduates no fewer than seven players this season, almost all of which made significant contributions all season, including two first-team AVCA All-Americans, Avery Tuggle and Annie Rose Leggett, as well as AVCA AA honorable mention Sara Flynn, so face a tough rebuilding job on the front line next year.   

On the other side of the bracket, no upsets as Juniata will face UW-Eau Claire in the other semi-final.

Per ETBU site, the Tigers have a new coach: (link too long to post here)

(Word I read is that she left LeTourneau to take this position--even more spice for that in-ASC rivalry)
