Final just in:

Edgewood over #5 Christopher Newport in 4!
     (25-16, 20-25, 25-15, 25-20)

Edgewood;  3 players with 10 or more digs; Martin and Evans 9 kills each
CNU:  Close 17 digs, Smith 11 kills

(WI Eagles also knocked off ARV SUNY New Paltz previously)

(of the NACC squads that finals have come in on, only Concordia-Chicago and Benedictine have yet to get off the schneid on the weekend so far)  (and the IL Eagles are in a pretty loaded meet out West)

There figures to be a lot of shuffling in the next Top 25 poll-- will Edgewood's upset of #5 CNU be enough to get the Eagles into the ARV category?  (don't know, given that squad also lost to Berry and Millikin)  :-X :-\ :-X :-\

Seven matches into Alverno's season, the Inferno have already achieved something in-conference they hadn't done in quite a while:

NACC Final:

Edgewood beats Benedictine in 3
     (25-18, 25-18, 25-19)

One other final:   Dominican over WLC in 3

   (WI Eagles now have head to head advantage of the NACC top 3)

   (CUC, Alverno and Rockford all also lost NACC matches tonight)



 (there could be a real dog-fight for NACC playoff spots 6-8)

Update:

A WLC win at Rockford tonight, coupled with losses by either Aurora or Marian, and the Warriors clinch a playoff spot. (I'd rather the Warriors win tonight- their last in-conference reg season match is against Edgewood at home.)

 There are other scenarios in which 3-way ties are possible, but I will withhold further comment until after tonight's finals start coming in.

NACC Final #1:

Dominican over Benedictine in 3
                (25-16, 25-16, 25-12)
Stars--  Kelly & Wilson 13 digs each, Dezelski 12 kills    Dominican solidifies it's hold on 2nd place,

#2:  Lakeland over Alverno in 3
              (25-8, 25-12, 27-25)
Muskies-- Galvan  13 digs          (Lakeland and Benedictine are tied, but the IL Eagles own the head-to-head tie-breaker)

#3:  Edgewood over MSOE in 4
               (25-7, 14-25, 25-16, 25-15)
WI Eagles:   Winkler and Tesch 18 and 16 digs, respectively; Winkler 15 kills

#4:  Aurora over CUC in 3

#5:  WLC over Rockford in 3

#6:  CUW over Marian in 4
                 (19-25, 25-23, 25-17, 25-19)
CUW:  4 players with 13 or more digs; Eggebrecht 10 kills  (this result coupled with WLC's win over Rockford seals a playoff spot for the Warriors)

(Alverno, Rockford and CUC have been eliminated). 

Head-to-head for last 3 contenders::  MSOE --  beat Aurora, plays Marian Sat.
                                                       Aurora -- lost to Marian, lost to MSOE,   
                                                       Marian--  beat Aurora,   plays MSOE Sat.
 
Unless I'm missing something, Marian is still alive, but the Sabers need to beat MSOE and hope CUW knocks off Aurora.

Further notes on some of Saturday's matches:

CUC/Alverno:  Thowgh both squads are out of playoff contention, Alverno's got a good chance for an in-NACC win at home-

Dominican/Lakeland:  Winner here clinches #2 seed for tournament.

Edgewood/WLC:  WI Eagle squad has a chance to run the table with a win on the road here.

MSOE/Marian and Aurora/CUW:  Oh, to be a fly on the wall in the locker rooms and huddles during these matches--

Turns out MSOE is the squad that loses out of the NACC playoffs on tie-breakers.

Last night's Alverno/CUC match was exciting as well, going to 5 sets, with CUC prevailing. (It would have been nice to see Inferno coach Munoz and the squad get an in-NACC home win, though.)
