Inferno Cross Country
The Inferno runners make the short trip to Greenfield Park for Saturday's Warrior Invitational hosted by Wisconsin Lutheran. Alverno competed in the race last season but didn't earn a team score. This will be the same course as this year's NACC Championship, a preview for the season finale.


Inferno Golf
The Inferno golfers close out the fall season at the 2016 NACC Women's Golf Championship this weekend at Brighton Dale Links in Kansasville.

Alverno has placed eighth each of the last two seasons and looks to move up the standings this year after firing off two of the best rounds of the season last week.


Inferno Soccer
Alverno (5-2, 1-1 NACC) looks to regroup after a shutout loss at WL C Saturday. The Inferno hosts Edgewood (6-2, 2-0) Wednesday before a crosstown trip to MSOE (5-2, 2-0) Saturday for the Red Rivalry Cup.

The Eagles have won their last three games and all eight of their contests this season have been decided by a single goal.

Winners of two straight, the Raiders will take on Maranatha Baptist University Tuesday at University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh Thursday before the Red Rivalry Game Saturday against the Inferno.

Alverno has yet to notch a win in either of the all-time series, with Edgewood leading 13-0 and MSOE 18-0.

Inferno Tennis
Alverno (5-6, 3-2 NACC) earned a nonconference split in a pair of duals last week with Bethany Lutheran College, a 7-2 win, and UW-Stout, a 7-2 loss.

The Inferno takes on fellow Milwaukeeans, MSOE (3-5, 2-2) Monday and WLC (3-5, 1-3) Saturday, in NACC action before a nonconference double dual Sunday versus Mills (0-0) and Westminster (0-0).

Alverno leads the all-time series versus MSOE, 4-3, is tied with Westminster, 1-1, trails WLC, 4-3, and will take on the Cyclones for the first time.


Inferno Volleyball
Alverno (3-16, 1-2 NACC) went 1-3 last week with a 3-1 win at Mount Mary Friday evening. The Inferno hits the road for a pair of NACC matches Friday at Edgewood and Saturday at Lakeland.

The Eagles (7-8, 2-0) are coming off a 1-3 weekend with their lone win a 3-2 victory over Buena Vista University, who the Inferno lost to earlier in the season.

The Muskies (8-8, 1-0) also went 1-3 in the same tournament with a 3-0 victory over BVU to open play. Lakeland will play at Marian Tuesday before Saturday's matchup with Alverno.

The Inferno trails both all-time series, 0-20 against Edgewood and 1-17 versus Lakeland.
