Noticed Hope, Calvin, Wittenberg and Ohio Northern are all ranked in AVCA Top 25

All "Border Battle" results:


David Collinge:
The NCAC is participating in the first of two "NCAC Weekends" at Allegheny this weekend.  All nine squads are in attendance, with each playing twice each of the two days of the event.  This event, as well as a second go-around at Earlham in October, will constitute half of the conference standings.  On Day One, usual suspects Wittenberg and Hiram won both of their matches, as did Wooster and Oberlin.  Wittenberg (7-3) and Wooster (11-2) will square off this afternoon, as will Hiram (7-5) and Oberlin (7-6), along with seven other matches.  This must be a real treat for local volleyball fans; I wish I could be there.

David Collinge:
Hiram and Wittenberg showed the NCAC who's the boss(es) today as each cruised to twin 3-0 victories to finish the NCAC Weekend 4-0.  Wittenberg, which didn't lose a game at the meet, dropped Wooster and Kenyon this afternoon, while Hiram dumped the Scots and Oberlin.  The Tigers and Terriers start the conference season atop the standings at 4-0, one game ahead of host Allegheny, whose three-set victories today over Kenyon and OWU leave them at 3-1.  Wooster and Oberlin followed up impressive 2-0 Saturdays with bleak 0-2 Sundays and join Denison (2-0 today) in fourth at 2-2.  Earlham won once, over OWU, while the Bishops and Kenyon came away with 0-4 records from the event.

Hope swept Calvin for the MIAA lead in front of 1,425 fans yesterday. Man, just over 600 at Oshkosh vs. Whitewater was noteworthy for us, but 1,425? What a rivalry. Like usual, what great support over in Michigan. And it's not like admission is free either. Very cool.
