- Like volleyball, women's soccer has just one game this week, hosting Loyola Friday. It will be the league opener after a rigorous non-league schedule. The Panthers tied No. 11 Purdue on Friday, but fell at Illinois Sunday.

- Men's soccer finally got to play in front of the home crowd last weekend, hosting the annual Panther Invitational--the longest-running Division I tourney in the nation. UWM overcame a 2-0 deficit on Sunday, but lost to Oakland, 3-2, to finish 0-2. The team also faced No. 9 UC Santa Barbrara on the weekend.

- Cross country ran its biggest meet of the season and continues to improve. The men's team took fifth in the 15-team Midwest Open, hosted by UW-Parkside. The women placed eighth among 16 teams. Four men finished among the top 20 to highlight the weekend. As mentioned, both teams have off this weekend.
