WVB: Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference
« on: September 17, 2009, 10:55:30 pm »
Just found out that Lakeland knocked off WLC in a 5-gamer on the road-Ouch!

The last couple of seasons Lakeland's gone undefeated during the regular season-but ended up getting a high-ranked WIAC squad right away in the D3 tournament and losing right away. (Maranatha upset the Muskies early in the NAthCon conference tournament one year-2006 if memory serves correctly-but that was before the NAthCon's automatic bid kicked in.)

Other NAthCon teams that have made that conference tournament in past years

Concordia-Chicago
Maranatha Baptist
Concordia-WI
Benedictine-IL
Aurora
Dominican

   (Edgewood, MSOE and Rockford have all made it one year. Need to check on Marian U)

Concordia-Chicago, and Dominican have a good chance to gain ground at the top of the NAthCon standings this week.

CUC gets Alverno on the road while Dominican has an away match vs. Rockford.

Maranatha gets Marian U at home. This poster's pulling for the Crusaders.

Marian beats Maranatha this evening 3-0 on the road:

  (This poster doesn't consider that a major upset, seeing as the Crusader women lost a boat-load of players to graduation and are in re-building mode-per the prospectus off Maranatha's website.)

Some 9/29 NAthCon results:

Lakeland beats Edgewood at home 3-0

Dominican knocks off Concordia-WI 3-1

WLC gets off the in-conference schneid by defeating Rockford on the road in 3

 (Curious about Concordia-Chicago/Benedictine, of all of tonight's NAthCon matchups, this figured to be the toughest to call, on paper).

10/2-3/09 Top NAthCon match-ups :

10/2:  Dominican @ Aurora: Stars off to great start; potential statement match for Aurora
          CUC vs. CUW:  Cougars will look to get back on track after losing to Benedictine
         
          (Following not necessarily a "top" match-up but an early "close to must-win" match: 
           
            Maranatha vs. WLC:  The last few times these squads have met, it's been a boatload of 5-gamers. Both teams are in rebuilding mode. Warriors can help themselves some with a win tonight.

10/3:  Benedictine @ Dominican:  Should the Stars knock off Aurora, a win here would enable them to keep pace with Lakeland. (This poster doesn't expect the Muskies to lose to MSOE).

Shaping up to be a real dogfight behind Lakeland in the NAthCon:

(IMHO, thought Concordia-Chicago would have had 1 or 2 more in-conference wins by now.)

10/6 NAthCon matches of note:

Dominican @ Concordia-Chicago:  (Both teams are coming off in-conference losses-a CUC loss here would put the Cougars at .500 in-conference. Dominican needs a win to keep pace with Lakeland-something's gotta give.)

Lakeland @ Concordia-WI:  These 2 squads have had interesting matches over the years. The Falcons beat Lakeland in a 5-gamer at home in 2005-both teams have been in the NAthCon conference tournament yearly.
