2 NAthCon 10/9 Finals are in:

Dominican beats Lakeland at home (25-16, 25-17, 18-25, 25-23). With that result, the race at the top of the conference becomes more wide open.

WLC beats MSOE 3-0 at home--the Warriors are now 4-3 in conference. Gotta play a conference match on the road tomorrow-

After 10/10 results- Benedictine-IL and Aurora are on top with 1 conference loss each. Dominican, CUC and Lakeland have 2 losses. WLC's won 5 in a row, and can help itself big time with another win or two, but the Warriors' last 4 all-NAthCon matches are against teams that are .500 or better in-conference. Edgewood's slipped a bit.

10/13 NAthCon result:

Lakeland over Maranatha Baptist (25-23, 25-12, 25-20):

Per Muskie press release:  Linger and Davis combined for 20 kills.

This poster's take on 10/14 match-ups:
The other in-conference leaders have an opportunity to put some distance between themselves and the rest of the pack.

Alverno's got a good chance to get off the in-conference schneid--against Marian U at home.

3 NAthCon squads have an opportunity to make statements in non-conference matches this weekend.

Lakeland plays 2 nationally ranked teams and CUC and WLC play teams that were in the "Others Receiving Votes" column in the last AVCA Top 25 poll.

10/20 NAthCon match-ups of note:

Concordia-WI @ Edgewood:  WI Eagles can move up some with a win. With Palmer & Co it wouldn't surprise this poster if this one went 5.

WLC @ Concordia-Chicago: Last season the home-standing Warriors came back from 2-0 down to knock off the Cougars. Both teams need a win to keep pace with the leaders. Both squads also are coming off tough non-conference meets--somethin's gotta give. 

Lakeland @ Marian:  Possible "trap" game for the Muskies on the road? Wouldn't appear so on paper, but. . . .

MSOE @ Maranatha: Winner moves further away from the cellar. Another potential 5-gamer.

10/23-24/09 take on NAthCon matchups:

10/23: Aurora @ Lakeland:  Muskies can put pressure on front-runner Benedictine with a win at home.

             Dominican @ Edgewood:  Wouldn't surprise this poster if this one went 5 (with Edgewood's Palmer & Co. in the mix, this shapes up to be a very competitive match.)
       
              MSOE @ Alverno:  Winner gets to leave basement. Per Alverno press releases, there was a mid-season change on that squad's roster. Methinks MSOE escapes the NAthCon cellar in this one.

               CUC @ Maranatha:  Cougars need a win badly. See comments on their matchup with Edgewood below.

10/24:  Benedictine & Lakeland--THE in NAthCon showdown of the day. Unless Marian pulls off an upset, the IL Eagles can open up a bit of distance with a win, but Lakeland rarely loses a regular season match at home-somethin's gotta give.

              CUC @ Edgewood:  Cougars desperately need a win. Should they end up having more than 6 in-conference losses they'd be in danger of falling out of tournament contention. Edgewood's in decent shape. Pinotti vs. Palmer, another one that could go all 5.

               CUW @ WLC:  Last in-conference reg season home match for the Warriors-who are already guaranteed their best in-conference reg season record in several seasons (worst they can finish is 7-5).

10/24 NAthCon in-conference finals:

Lakeland over Benedictine (25-17, 25-16, 25-20) (Muskie's Davis 15 kills, Paulus 19 digs)

Concordia-Chicago lost to Edgewood

Concordia-WI over WLC 3-1
Rockford over Alverno 3-0
Aurora over Marian U 3-0
Dominican over Maranatha 3-1

Lakeland has clinched at least a tie for the regular season title. Lakeland, Alverno and Benedictine are now finished with regular season conference play.

10-27: A Concordia-WI win over Marian U would put the Falcons at 9-3 and
10-28: An Aurora win over Concordia-Chicago would put the Spartans also at 9-3. A Dominican win over WLC would put the Stars in a 3-way tie for first, and Edgewood can finish the regular season at 8-4 with a win over MSOE.  Still much to sort out yet. Could be a 3-way tie for a playoff spot somewhere, just where is yet to be determined.
