Gotta think the same. Seems Eau Claire and Whitewater should be in regardless of what happens Thursday and Saturday. Maybe we sneak a 3rd team in if Point or Oshkosh get the AQ. I looked back and we sent 3 teams in 2019. Didn't look to see who was conference champ that year between Eau Claire, Point and Whitewater.

Blugolds win an exciting match in 5 over Oshkosh.

Blugolds dropped a tightly contested first set 25-27 in which Oshkosh hit around .470.

Blugolds controlled the next two sets winning 25-16, 25-16.

Oshkosh took another extended set 29-27 in set 4.

Blugolds closed out the match taking set 5 by a score of 15-9.

Will play Whitewater Saturday night for the WIAC crown.

Blugolds take home the WIAC championship over Whitewater in 4 (25-21, 25-22, 22-25, 25-19. Great atmosphere at the McPhee Center. Glad I was able to make it back.

WIAC gets three teams into the tournament.

UW-Whitewater travels to Calvin and will play (16-13) Ithaca College first round. Host Calvin should be favored in the region, but the Warhawks have put together a very strong season and after watching them this weekend wouldn't be surprised at all to see them pull an upset.

UW-Eau Claire hosts and will play 24-6 Greenville University. UWEC did see Greenville back in October in Chicago and won 3-2 (25-17, 25-18, 18-25, 20-25, 15-11) so there will be some familiarity there. Hope is at the bottom of the bracket and will likely be the favorite to come out.

UW-Stevens Point got in and I believe will be travelling to Wartburg where they will face 22-6 Bethel University. This will be the third meeting between the two schools this season. Bethel took the first match 3-0 in September and then fell 1-3 to the Pointers in October. Wartburg and Claremont-M-S will be standing in the way for the Pointers to make it into the final 8.

2022 D3 AVCA Preseson Poll has 2 WIAC teams ranked.

Returning D3 National Champoins UWEC #1. Lost a good amount of top end talent off of last year's team so will be curious to see how this year's team looks.

UW Whitewater #16. Had a nice young team last year I thought. Will be interesting to watch if they improve off the experience. Wouldn't be surprised to see them in the top 10 at some point this year.

Receiving Votes:

Steven's Point - 95
Oshkosh - 61
LaCrosse - 9

WIAC update in Week 1 AVCA poll.

UWEC drops from #1 to #5 after going 2-1 opening weekend at Trinity. Managed to pull off a 5 set victory against then #6 Berry. 3-0 sweep of then #24 Transylvania, then on the wrong end of a 0-3 sweep against host Trinity who jumped from #5 to #2 in this week's poll.

WHITEWATER rockets up from #16 to #9 after going   4-0 opening weekend. Big 3-1 win against previously #12 ranked Wartburg.

UWSP enters into the top 25 at #24 after going 2-1 opening weekend. This included a 3-2 win over then #20 Bethel(MN) along with a 3-0 loss to then #15 Northwestern(MN).

OSHKOSH is  getting votes(57) after a 3-1 opening weekend that included a 3-0 loss to current #4 Juniata.

WIAC Update Week 4 AVCA Rankings

- Missed last week as I was out of town and pretty much away from internet.

UWSP: Top ranked WIAC team at #12, up from #21, in the new poll that came out yesterday. Big win over MIAC opponent Gustavus Adolphus who had jumped up into the rankings the week before following a strong start to the season that included a win over UWEC the prior weekend at the Augsburg Tournament. Pointers now sit at 10-1 on the season.

UWEC: Slides in right behind at #13 after an undefeated week. No big wins for the Blugolds this week, but opened up WIAC play with a win against Platteville and then swept through the competition at their own invitational over the weekend.

UW-Whitewater: Stays at #15 this week. Nice win to open their WIAC play against UW-Oshkosh on the road and then like Eau Claire swept the competition at their own Warhawk Open during the weekend.

UW-Oshkosh: receives 14 votes this week for the top 25.

Key Match ups this upcoming week.

Big one is going to be tonight when Whitewater hosts Point.

UWEC hosts River Falls in WIAC play, and then hosts Bethel Univ. (MN) Thursday who has been receiving votes the past two weeks in the poll and currently is sitting outside the top 25 with 44 votes cast for them this week.

WIAC Update Week 5 AVCA Rankings

UW-Whitewater climbs back into the Top 10 coming in at #9, up from #15 last week with an exciting 5 set victory over UWSP last week. Got a chance to watch the last few sets and it got pretty intense. Really fun match to watch.

UWEC moves up a couple to #11 after sweeping UWRF 3-0 and then beating MIAC opponent Bethel in an exciting 4 game match.

UWSP only drops 1 spot down to #13 following their loss at Whitewater during the week and then winning 3 matches at their own tournament over the weekend.

UW-Oshkosh is just 4 spots out of the Top 25 while receiving 97 votes.

Key Match Ups this Upcoming Week

By far the key match up of the week is going to be a non conference match up in which UWEC hosts #3 Northwestern (MN) on Wednesday night.

UWSP hosts Oshkosh Wednesday night and then Saturday hosts a very good MIAC opponent in #16 Augsburg.
