What To Look For At

With the return to the five-day work week, returns to (mostly) Monday postings. Right now, the top story is Maddie Sueppel being named the Horizon league Defensive Player of the Week. The Volleyball team heads to Northern Illinois tomorrow, so a weekly release should follow shortly.

Men's and women's soccer will have weekly releases posted by the end of the day Tuesday. Meanwhile, the coaches' show podcasts will also be there (or more accurately, here). The Jon Coleman Show (men's soccer) is already available for download.

We've added the Cross Country Preview Show with head coach Pete Corfeld. His show is posted every Tuesday in advance of the Panthers in action. That show is available here.

As for the player blogs, "GL's Journal" is already posted, while Sam Trawitzke (The VolleyBlog) and Louise Vraney (women's soccer) are putting finishing touches on their weekly posts.

A Look Back At The Week That Was:
- Cross Country had a triumphant weekend, with senior Abbie Zaspel winning the Huskie Invitational and the men's squad taking first place in the team standings. Sophomore Chris Schuenke led Panthers in the 2-5 positions to seal the victory for UWM. This weekend, bot teams have a home meet of sorts, running close by at the Parkside Invitational in Kenosha.

- Volleyball, as mentioned, gets its week started early at NIU Tuesday. The team then opens league play this weekend with the two Chicago schools (UIC & Loyola). The Panthers hosted the annual Panther Invitational, posting a 1-3 mark.

- Men's Soccer returned home from California, where it dropped a pair of one-goal decisions at the Matador Challenge. This weekend, Milwaukee hosts the 36th Annual Panther Invitational. The tourney is the longest-running tournament in NCAA Division I soccer.

- Women's Soccer continued its brutal non-conference schedule last weekend, losing games to Minnesota and Iowa. The Panthers closes out non-league play this weekend at Purdue and Illinois. Both teams were ranked in the top 11 in the nation last weekend.
