October Madness

Play-offs are here and to no surprise there have already been some major upsets. Penn Manor (Millersville, PA) who had yet to lose a game all season lost its Lancaster Lebanon semi-final game against Donegal who then went on to beat the historic DIII powerhouse, Warwick and take home the trophy. At this point, all the teams still standing are good and on any given day anyone can beat anyone, hence the madness.
Out in Colorado, since they have such a small group of schools that play, have already begun state play-offs. Mountain Vista, a team who only won 5 games two years ago beat the reigning state champion Cherry Creek last night in the quarter-finals. Check out the write up and take a close look at the sticks the girls are using...

Emmaus now (19-0) won the Lehigh Valley Conference and is set to play Eastern (New Jersey) tomorrow, 10/18, in a friendly match in preparation for their respective state tournaments.
Wyoming Seminary avenged last weeks loss to Lackawanna Trail yesterday by beating them 3-0 in their league championship. See what I mean by any given day...
In college action, #1 Syracuse will host Big East rival Uconn on Saturday. I am excited to get the details on this game as these teams will no doubt bring out the best in each other.
#7 UNC will host neighbors #13 UVA and # 6 JMU in a tough back to back weekend in Chapel Hill.
Check back Monday for results!

Have a great weekend,

Alli
