Well this week’s regional rankings are a big one. The RACs have had a chance to work out any issues they may have had and the ordering will give you a good idea where teams sit prior to the conference tournaments. Of the eight teams listed in the West rankings we had 5 losses this…… Continue reading West Region Rankings (10/30/17)
Update – I’ve also updated the Watch List. I removed Chapman and UTD this week as I think neither have a chance at a Pool C bid. Tournament champ or bust! One other interesting note that I’ll repeat when the regional rankings come out about the regional host site. Right now Claremont is the odds…… Continue reading Weekend Wrap-Up

Update: My math was wrong on Pac Lu clinching with a win. Their magic number is two – any win by Pac Lu or loss by Whitworth reduces the number.

Update: Southwestern gets a measure of revenge against the NAIA team that beat them earlier in the year. Everything I see is that Caltech just beat Chapman!?! I don’t believe Caltech has won a SCIAC conference match in over a decade. Box score says Caltech won and SCIAC site says Caltech won. Live Stats says…… Continue reading Wednesday, October 25 Match Day
