There are a lot of athletic events this weekend. Here is a rundown of what is going on both on and off campus.
The Volleyball team is playing in Lawrence, Kansas today and tomorrow in a Quadrangular hosted by Haskell Indian Nations University. Teams include Haskell, Missouri Valley, and University of St. Mary. The Tigers will play the host school at 3:00 pm today followed by Missouri Valley at 5:00. CCC will wrap up the quad tomorrow afternoon at 1:00 pm with University of St. Mary. Missouri Valley is from Marshall, Missouri, and is a member of the Heart of America Athletic Conference. University of St. Mary is from Leavenworth, Kansas and plays in the KCAC. Haskell is a member of the MCAC. All three schools have losing records on the season. Only Haskell is above .500 in conference play.
The Cross Country teams will also be on the road this weekend. The Tiger thinclads will be participating in the Soutwestern College NAIA Mid-States Classic down in Winfield, Kansas. The Tigers are looking to have a strong showing, and continue to improve as they get ready for the MCAC conference meet on November 3rd.
CCC golfer, Treg Fawl is currently on his way with coach Zac Cumpston to Florida to compete in the NCCAA National Golf Tournament in Panama City. Treg is competing as an individual, based on his scores from meets earlier this fall. Treg is the second golfer in as many years to get selected from Central to participate in the National Tournament. Travis Bobychuck was selected last season. Treg will start play on Saturday and will finish early next week.
The men's and women's soccer teams are back in action on Saturday after both won in thrilling fashion on Tuesday in overtime. The Tigers are hosting Central Baptist College from Conway, Arkansas. The Mustangs are 2nd year members of the MCAC. The CBC women are currently 4th in the conference at 9-5 and 2-2 in MCAC play. The Mustang men are also in 4th place, just above the Tigers, with a 5-6-3 overall record, and a 1-2-1 record in conference action. Both games should be exciting as the Tigers are playing in front of what should be a raucous homecoming crowd, and many seniors will be playing the final home game of their career.
As always, the home soccer games will be streamed live on the web at www.ccctigers.com.
