My top 5 matches of the week:
9/30 UW-Stevens Point vs. UW-Whitewater
10/2 Elmhurst vs. UW-Oshkosh
10/2 UW-Oshkosh vs. Colorado College
10/3 Elmhurst vs. Colorado College
10/4 Washington-St. Louis vs. Chicago

We’re down to three unbeaten teams in all of D III. One of them is easy – the AVCA’s top-ranked team. See the contenders, and their upcoming schedules, on the Last Team Standing page.

The Standout Stats page had several additions during the past week, including a 27-kill performance in four sets as well as a 50-dig effort and a 62-assist showing in five sets.
