Friday, Sept. 26

♦ Fall women’s tennis will take on Lewis and Clark Community College beginning at 4 p.m.

Saturday, Sept. 27

♦ Saturday is going to be a day full of Spartan athletics as six different teams will be competing from dawn until dusk.

♦ The day of action will begin with the men’s and women’s cross country team participating in the Maryville CC Open, starting at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m., respectively.

♦ After the cross country team hits the pavement, three different teams will begin action at 1 p.m.

1) Fall men’s tennis will be hitting the court against Quincy University at home.

2) Women’s volleyball will have a double header against Lincoln Christian University and Monmouth College at the campus of LCU.

3) Also, women’s soccer will be taking on non-conference opponent Central Methodist University at home. This game will be broadcast on the Spartan Digital Network.

♦ Lastly, to round off the day, Spartan football will be kicking off at 1:30 p.m. at Lindenwood University-Belleville. LU-Belleville has currently posted an 0-3 record on the year so both teams are still seeking that elusive first victory. This game will be an audio-only broadcast on the Spartan Digital Network.
