The Inferno golfers look to close out regular season play with a pair of duals this week, at Lakeland Friday, and a home meet versus Mount Mary Saturday.

The Muskies have won three multi-team events they have competed with Alverno this season. The Blue Angels edged out the Inferno by 16 strokes as the season-opening triangular.


Inferno Soccer
Alverno is off to the best start in program history through six games with a 5-1 record (1-0 Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference). The Inferno has won three straight games including a 6-0 win over Lakeland University in the NACC opener.

The team heads crosstown to Wisconsin Lutheran Saturday for its lone game of the week. The Warriors are off to a 2-5 start (0-1 NACC) this season.

WLC leads the all-time series 11-2, including last season's 2-0 victory at Alverno Field.


Inferno Tennis
Alverno has won two straight and three of its last four for a 4-5 record (3-2 NACC) on the season. The Inferno will step away from league play this week for a pair of nonconference duals up at UW-Stout.

Alverno will take on Bethany Lutheran (0-2) at 1 p.m. before taking on the host Blue Devils (2-3) at 4 p.m. Stout and the Vikings will open play at 10 a.m.

Saturday will be the first meeting with Bethany Lutheran while the Inferno trails UW-Stout 0-3 all-time.


Inferno Volleyball
Alverno (2-13, 1-1- NACC) opened the conference season with a 1-1 split opening week and returns to NACC play Wednesday as the team hosts Aurora (8-5, 1-0 NACC).

The Inferno then heads crosstown Friday to Mount Mary (2-3) for a non-league match before hosting Grinnell (4-7) and Beloit (5-6) Saturday for more nonconference action.
