Posted on 3 Mary Hardin-Baylor match wins (over  Millsaps, SRSU, and Howard Payne, respectively, and an ARV UT-Dallas win over McMurry. I'll see how it goes from here.

#3 Trinity visits #4 Colorado College in one of this weekend's SCAC Divisionals, continuing last year's trend of playing them in Colorado Springs (which they did three times, all losses).  The last time the two faced off in San Antonio was a five-set classic in 2018, also won by Colorado, and they won't play there again unless they face off in this year's SCAC playoffs to be held at Trinity.

#3 Trinity (TX) defeats #4 Colorado College in Colorado Springs for the first time in 7 attempts, 25-20, 25-10, 25-13.  The visiting Tigers hit .355 (.522 in the second set) while limiting their opponents to .114 (and -.067 in the second).

It should be noted (per CC's website) that Colorado was playing without senior outside hitter Isabella Vasquez, a first-team all-SCAC selection injured in Friday's victory over Southwestern.  Vasquez, a .271 hitter, averages over 10 kills per match.

Barring upsets, Trinity coach Julie Jenkins should earn the 1,000th win of her career this weekend, most likely Friday evening against homestanding Centenary (LA) (9-8).   Austin College (11-1) will do their best in the opening game of the crossover to avoid being #999; if there is an upset than #1000 could come against UDallas (5-7) the following day.

This year the first regional rankings were issued in alpha order.  There's way more to ranking than looking at only SOS - overall record is a major factor so I would expect CMS 1, Trinity 2, ... Pomona, Chapman.  Per the pre-championship manual the primary criteria include:

Quote
● Won-lost percentage against Division III opponents.
● Division III head-to-head competition.
● Results versus common Division III opponents.
● Results versus ranked Division III teams as established by the final ranking and the ranking preceding the final ranking.
● Division III strength of schedule.
- Opponents’ Winning Percentage (OWP).
- Opponents’ Opponents’ Winning Percentage (OOWP).
■ Conference postseason contests are included.
■ Contests versus provisional and reclassifying members in their third and fourth years shall count in the primary criteria. Provisional and reclassifying members shall remain ineligible for rankings and selections.

And I find it hard to believe that the NCAA would rank any 10-9 team over 19-0 no matter the difference in SOS (even though they obviously did this week, LOL).  Some of the teams listed in these initial rankings (not just this region) are real head scratchers - I bet it gets sorted out (and sorted) next week.

First real regional rankings are out. 

REGION X      
#SchoolRecord-- D3 SOS----vs RRO--
1Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (A)
22-1
.590
8-1-0
2Trinity (Texas) (A)
26-2
.625
10-2-0
3Colorado College (C)
24-4
.571
7-3-0
4Southwestern (Texas) (C)
21-3
.572
3-3-0
5Mary Hardin-Baylor (A)

1-0-0
6Whitworth   (A)
17-2
.532
1-2-0
7Pomona-Pitzer (C)
15-7
.532
1-4-0

(A) - Pool A if wins conference bid, based on current standings
(C) - Pool C if does not win conference bid, based on current standings

Mary Hardin-Baylor had better hope they win the ASC, because with that SOS and only one game against RROs they'll be hard pressed to win a comparison against other regional representatives.
