♦ 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.

♦ 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.
