Saturday, October 28 Match Day

Update: Box score links will not happen today. Sorry.

Caltech trying to win an SCIAC match for the first time in forever. Going to 5th set.

History, as Caltech earns their first ever SCIAC victory.

First shoe drops as Whittier loses to La Verne. Chapman is winning and if they hang on then Whittier is out of the SCIAC tourney. So let it be written, so let it be done. Just crazy, but I think the four playoff teams are CMS, La Verne, Cal Lu and Chapman.

Southwestern takes down DII St. Mary’s in 5-sets.

Random Thoughts: UTT needs to beat Austin College to keep alive the faint chance at a Pool C bid. Their faint chance did get brighter with both Whittier and La Verne losing yesterday. If you are a Patriot then you are rooting for Whittier. The UMHB/Trinity match might end up being interesting. I think the Tigers should sweep at home but the match probably means more to the Cru so maybe they surprise. Whittier / La Verne is a HUGE one. In my post from Thursday, my thinking was whomever wins this has a Pool C bid with their name on it. Also from my post on Thursday…things are breaking right (or wrong depending on who’s looking), Whittier may need this match to qualify for the SCIAC tournament. Oxy at Chapman is also part of that equation as Chapman cannot afford to lose. Up in the NWC, Pac Lu tries to cut their magic number with a win after stumbling last night. As for the Cal Lu / CMS match, I have this written down as a CMS win but Cal Lu is playing nice volleyball right now and actually have a chance at the #2 seed in the SCIAC tournament (with a Cal Lu win and a Whittier win).
