Good question.  The powers in the old SCAC were Southwestern, Colorado College, Austin, and Trinity; the SAA race could be pretty wide open.    Based on their rapid progression in most sports I'd think Birmingham-Southern may be the team to beat - they were the only top-four seed in last year's tournament from the eastern side of the conference.    Only one SAA team won a match in the tournament - homestanding Millsaps who hosted the tourney and upset Austin in the second round, after defeating (#11 seed) Oglethorpe in the opener.

Nice preview. Looks like it could be an exciting season. Do you get to many games?

Generally just attend SCAC championships and/or NCAA playoffs when close by (central TX) ... won't be attending any SAA matches  ;)

I thought you might have had a daughter who played. I'd like to catch a couple of Carthage games this season. I have some former students who are going there to play.

I get that reaction a lot from the parents who ask me "which one is your daughter."    :)

Good luck to your former students at Carthage!
