For the first time since Sept. 19, 2012, No. 9 Madonna lost a home game.

Madonna was defeated by No. 25 Davenport on Oct. 1, marking the first road win against Crusaders in team history. Davenport is 10-1 in conference play, while Madonna is 9-2, setting the stage for a remarkable finish for the WHAC championship.

Davenport will put its five-game win streak on the line against Siena Heights on Oct. 8. Madonna will try to bounce back after their historic home win streak became a two-game losing streak (loss vs. Lourdes on Oct. 4) when it faces off against Northwestern Ohio on Oct. 8.

The University of Northwestern Ohio Racers won their ninth game in a row in conference play Oct. 1, as they defeated the Cornerstone Golden Eagles. The Racers are second overall in the WHAC and 9-1 against conference teams. Their next game will be against Madonna on Oct. 8.

University of Michigan-Dearborn lost to Concordia Thursday, although the Wolverines did manage to win the second set of the game. Concordia pulled away at the end as they won the final two sets of the match.

Colby DeMare led the Wolverines with 15 kills and Megan Ynclan had an additional 11. Becca Carley played well as she had 19 digs. The Wolverines will face Indiana Tech on Oct. 8.
