What To Look For At

With the Labor Day holiday today, a lot of our content at and our network of sites should be posted by the end of the day Tuesday.
Weekly releases for men's and women's soccer and volleyball will be posted, as will the Michael Moynihan (W-Soccer) and Susie Johnson (Volleyball) coaches show podcasts. The Jon Coleman Show (M-Soccer) has already been posted on our podcasts page here.
We'll also be getting our student-athlete blogs posted. As a reminder, you can follow the volleyball team through the eyes of setter Sam Trawitzke with the "VolleyBlog". You can also check out "GL's Journal" (men's soccer) and "The Women's Soccer Player Blog," which will penned by senior Louise Vraney this week.
A Look Back At The Week That Was:
- Men's soccer got the season underway at Marquette and with the Middleton Sports & Fitness Invitational. The Panthers are 1-2 heading into this week after taking third at the tourney with a 1-1 mark. UWM heads to California this weekend for the Big West Challenge.
- Volleyball posted a 1-3 mark at the Magnolia Classic, hosted by Ole Miss. The Panthers will be looking to get back on the winning track this weekend, hosting the Panther Invitational. UWM will play two games at the Klotsche Center both Friday and Saturday.
- The women's soccer played in arguably the top tournament in the nation this weekend, dropping a pair of tough contests at Notre Dame's Inn at St. Mary's Classic. The tourney featured No. 1 North Carolina, No. 2 Notre Dame, Milwaukee and Marquette, both of which was receiving votes at the beginning of the week. The Panthers host nationally-ranked Minnesota Friday and head to Iowa on Sunday this weekend.
- Cross Country opened the 2009 campaigned and posted a combined six wins at the UIC Home Opener. Senior Abbie Zaspel took second on the women's side, which went 3-0. Meanwhile, for the men, freshman Jake Reilly took second in the first cross country of his life (yeah... LIFE). Milwaukee heads to the Huskie Invitational Saturday in DeKalb, Ill.
