Attended the WLC home triangular over the weekend. Concordia-WI and Ripon were scheduled to play the second match of the day. Ripon won the second set 35-33, but Concordia-WI ended up winning the match in 5! Wild!

10/27 NAthCon Final:

Concordia-WI over Marian U (25-18, 25-19, 25-20)

(That puts the Falcons a game behind Lakeland & Benedictine and 1/2 game up on Aurora. It also means that WLC and Edgewood will end up playing first-round matches on the road, Concordia-Chicago will also end up on the road.)

Should Dominican beat WLC at home tomorrow, and Aurora beat Concordia-Chicago, the Spartans and Falcons would finish with 9-3 records and CUW would get the 4th seed, having beaten Aurora earlier this season head to head.

The only tie WLC would have an advantage on would be if the Warriors beat Dominican and Aurora lost to CUC. (WLC beat Aurora on head to head this year.

If Dominican loses tomorrow, Lakeland wins the regular season conference title, having beaten Benedictine head-to-head.

If WLC and Edgewood remain tied after tomorrow's action, the WI Eagle squad gets the #6 seed, having beaten the Warriors head to head.

Suppose Lakeland, Benedictine & Dominican all finish at 10-2? (and/or WLC, Aurora and Edgewood all finish 8-4?) This poster will clam up and let the NAthCon commissioner & company sort those scenarios out.  :D

10/28 NAthCon final just in:

Dominican over WLC (17-25, 25-16, 25-22, 25-17).

With that result the Stars finish the regular season in a 3-way tie with Lakeland and Benedictine at the top. If my calculations are correct, WLC will end up as a 7th seed in the conference playoffs.

More finals later.

Other NAthCon Championship results:

Lakeland over WLC in 3 (25-21, 25-18, 25-23) 
     Muskies' Paulus one of 3 Lakeland players with double digit kills.

Edgewood upsets Benedictine in 4 (28-26, 25-17, 12-25, 25-14)
      Edgewood's Palmer--12 kills, 18 digs
      Benedictine--Leyden 19 kills, 20 digs

Concordia-WI over Aurora in 3

WLC finishes 17-17 overall on the year and the squad's 7-5 in-conference mark was the best since an 11-5 mark back in '05 in the old LMC (the same year Maranatha and Lakeland duked it out at the top, with Lakeland winning out on tie-breakers--the Warriors also made the LMC playoffs that year-losing at home to Marian in the opening round).

This season, given A) there was a major shift in coaching (2 new assistants)  B) the squad lost a couple of starters from last season and C) it fought its' way out of an early 0-3 in-conference hole, this poster's not complaining too much.

Good news and bad news for Lakeland followers:

Good news:  Lakeland doesn't have to play a WIAC school in the first round this year.

Bad news:  The Muskies' draw--Hope (MI) on Hope's home floor.

NAthCon volleyball awards are now up:

http://northernac.org/releases/2009/2009_11/20091111a.html

(At the risk of sounding "homer-ish" I'll toss out an honorable metion to WLC's Coach Balsiger for getting the Warriors in the NAthCon playoffs for the first time since '05. I posted on the other factors that figured in some 4-5 posts back.)
