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

Volleyball
The wackiness of CC volleyball was on display over the weekend, when Franklin & Marshall and Haverford both competed in the Elizabethtown Halloween Classic. F&M, the odd team out of the CC playoffs, won the tournament, while Haverford, which tied for first place, went 0-3. Muhlenberg will host the CC Tournament on Saturday. The Mules will face Johns Hopkins at 1:00, Haverford and Gettysburg square off at 3:00, and the championship is scheduled for 7:00.

The playoff picture was finalized when Johns Hopkins defeated Franklin & Marshall, 3-2, on Saturday night. The Blue Jays will host the CC Tournament and play Gettysburg in the first round. Muhlenberg faces Western Maryland in the other semifinal. F&M, 6-0 at one point, dropped its final three games to drop out of the playoffs.

Football
Western Maryland clinched the CC’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament while not playing on Saturday. Dickinson’s 17-14 overtime win against Johns Hopkins removed the Blue Jays from contention for the CC championship. Muhlenberg could still tie Western Maryland for the title, but the Green Terror would get the bid because of its head-to-head win.

Field Hockey
Gettysburg won the CC championship with a controversial 2-1 win against Johns Hopkins in the title game. The Blue Jays appeared to have tied the game as time ran out, but the goal was disallowed. The Bullets (10-10) advanced to the final with a 4-3 overtime win against top-seeded host Washington and will host Notre Dame (Md.) in an NCAA first-round game on Wednesday. The winner plays at Messiah.
MUHLENBERG TO HOST NCAA SOCCER REGIONAL

Muhlenberg College has been selected to host the Mid-Atlantic Regional of the NCAA Division III Women’s Soccer Tournament. The games will be held this weekend at Varsity Field.

The schedule is as follows:
Saturday, November 3
11:00 Muhlenberg vs. Notre Dame (Md.) or Elizabethtown
1:30 New Jersey vs. Western New England
Sunday, November 4
1:00 championship

The winner of Sunday’s game will advance to face the winner of the Great Lakes Regional, which will be held at Ohio Wesleyan, for the right to play in the national semifinals.

The Mules (18-2) earned their second straight NCAA bid by winning the Centennial Conference championship. Notre Dame (12-8), the champion of the Atlantic Women’s Colleges Conference, is making its first NCAA appearance. Elizabethtown (14-4), an at-large selection from the Commonwealth Conference, has been in the NCAA Tournament three times previously, reaching the semifinals in 1997.

The College of New Jersey (17-0), in the NCAAs for the 10th straight season, is the defending national champion and the top-ranked team in Division III. The Lions have a 32-game winning streak and have not allowed a goal all season. Last year, TCNJ defeated Muhlenberg in the second round en route to their second national title. Western New England (14-7-1) is the champion of the Great Northeast Athletic Conference.

Ticket prices for the tournament games are $4 for public general admission and $2 for student general admission with identification from one of the participating institutions and senior citizens.
