AROUND THE SLIAC

Blackburn College

The Beavers topped Eureka 3-0 yesterday, giving them two wins in their last three games. Maria Cline, Layna Broux, and Jasmine Tillman all netted goals for Blackburn while Anicca Mackay-Slavin made two saves in recording the shutout. Blackburn wraps up their season on Saturday against Westminster.

Eureka College

The Red Devils men's soccer team recorded their 7th win of the season, one shy of tying the single-season school record of eight set in 2015. The Red Devils scored just 92-seconds into their game against Blackburn with Moises Aldana adding an insurance goal in the final five minutes. The Red Devils will try to match the record eight wins on Saturday when they face Greenville.

Fontbonne University

The Fontbonne women's soccer team extended their winning streak to nine games after a 6-1 win over MacMurray on Tuesday night. The Griffins have outscored their opponents 36-1 in those nine games and close out the regular season on Saturday against Webster in a battle for the top seed in the conference tournament.

Greenville University

Abby Freeman continues her remarkable season on the volleyball court, breaking a pair of school records last weekend. Freeman set records for kills and service aces in a season. This year she is 1st in NCAA Division III in points per set, 3rd in service aces, and 4th in kills per set.

Iowa Wesleyan University

Iowa Wesleyan wraps up their 2018 season with a pair of matches on their home court. The Tigers will host Fontbonne on Wednesday and Spalding on Saturday. The volleyball Tigers are 5-11 in conference play and with two wins could post their most conference wins in a season since the 2013 season. 

MacMurray College

The Highlanders returned to the volleyball court after a month away but saw their return come up short in a 3-2 loss to Principia. The Highlanders rallied back after dropping the first two sets they won the next two, winning 25-20 and 25-19, to force a fifth set. But eventually fell 15-11. Prior to the match, MacMurray recognized Olivia Wall for recording her 1000th career dig over the weekend.

Principia College

The Panthers are one of five teams battling for an open conference tournament spot. They are currently 4-3 in conference action, tied with Iowa Wesleyan for 5th place, and 1/2 game behind Fontbonne for the final spot. Principia closes out their regular season with home games against MacMurray and Webster.

Spalding University

The Spalding men's soccer team clinched at least a share of the SLIAC regular season title after defeating Greenville 2-1 on Tuesday night. It is the Golden Eagles second regular-season title, following the 2016 team. The win also secures the Golden Eagles as host for one of the semifinal games of the SLIAC Men's Soccer Tournament.

Webster University

The Webster men's soccer team responded to last week's loss with back-to-back wins this week; defeating Eureka and Iowa Wesleyan. The Gorloks, 5-1-1 in the SLIAC, close out the regular season with games against Fontbonne and Principia as they look to lock down their playoff seeding.

Westminster College

The Blue Jays clinched a spot in the 2018 SLIAC Women's Soccer Tournament after their 4-0 win over Principia last night. Westminster stands at 9-4-2 overall and 5-2-1 in the SLIAC. They will close out their regular season at home on Saturday against Blackburn.
