A weekly look at what’s going on in the Centennial Conference:

Volleyball
And you thought the NFL has parity ... CC volleyball enters its final week with a five-way tie for first. Key matches on Wednesday are: Muhlenberg at Ursinus, Gettysburg at Franklin & Marshall, Haverford at Swarthmore and Johns Hopkins at Western Maryland. Because they only have one loss to the other contending teams, the Mules would win most tiebreaker scenarios and would have a good shot at hosting the CC Tournament if they beat Ursinus. However, if Muhlenberg loses to Ursinus, and Gettysburg, Haverford and Johns Hopkins all win, the Mules would miss out on the playoffs entirely. Stay tuned.

The remaining two qualifiers will be decided Tuesday by the Gettysburg-at-Dickinson and Johns Hopkins-at-F&M games. For the three contending teams, it’s simple: win and you’re in.

Men’s Soccer
Johns Hopkins has clinched a playoff berth. The Mules need help even if they win their final two games, since they have lost to the two teams with which they are tied. Based on the standings, Western Maryland (vs. Dickinson, at Washington) and Haverford (at Ursinus, vs. Swarthmore) have easier schedules this week than Muhlenberg (vs. F&M, vs. Ursinus). But Gettysburg and F&M still have to play Johns Hopkins, so anything is possible.
