The fall seasons are moving toward the finish line, while the winter teams are just getting started.

That means that nine Tommie teams will compete on Friday through Sunday, Nov. 8-10.

The hockey, football, volleyball, soccer and women's basketball contests will have live video and live stats that can be accessed here on the Tommie website and at www.miacathletics.com/composite

 

Women's Hockey

No. 5-ranked St. Thomas (0-1) faces UW-Stevens Point on Friday (7 p.m.) and Saturday (2 p.m.) at Saint Thomas Ice Arena in Mendota Heights.

It's the home debut for the Tommie women, who set a school record with 25 wins last season.

 

Men's Hockey

St. Thomas (1-1) faces night road games Friday at UW-Stout (0-2) and Saturday at returning NCAA champion UW-Stevens Point (1-1).

Last weekend, St. Thomas lost 5-2 at Milwaukee School of Engineering and won 8-3 at Concordia-Mequon.

 

Swim-Dive

St. Thomas competes in a pair of away dual meets: Friday night at St. John's against the Johnnies and St. Ben's Bennies, and Saturday afternoon at Carleton.

 

Women's Basketball

St. Thomas starts its season in San Antonio with Saturday and Sunday games hosted by Trinity University. The No. 9-ranked Toms face East Texas Baptist Saturday at 4 p.m., and Trinity University Sunday at 6 p.m.

The Toms went 30-2 last season but return just one starter and five of their top 12.

 

Football

No. 18-ranked St. Thomas is home Saturday to face Gustavus in a battle of 6-2 teams. Kickoff is 1:10 p.m. at Palmer Field.

With home wins Saturday and on Nov. 16 against Bethel, the Toms would secure another eight-win season, share the MIAC championship, and stay in consideration for an NCAA playoff berth.

 

Soccer

Both Tommie teams are the No. 2 seed playing at the No. 1 seed in MIAC championship games on Saturday (1 p.m. starts).

The Tommie men play Gustavus in Mankato at Bethany Lutheran College's turf field. The No. 19-ranked Tommie women play at Augsburg,

The winners take the league's automatic berth into the NCAA playoffs, while the other teams will be in consideration for at-large berths into the national playoff field when the brackets are announced Monday.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $2 for students for all MIAC playoff contests.

 

Volleyball

No. 15-ranked St. Thomas (28-4) is the top seed for the conference playoffs and faces No. 2-seed St. Olaf Saturday (7 p.m.) for the playoff title.

The winner takes the league's automatic berth into the NCAA playoffs, but both teams appear to be locks to make the national playoff field when the brackets are announced Monday.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $2 for students for all MIAC playoff contests.

 

Cross Country

The No. 16-ranked Tommie women and the No. 25-ranked Tommie men are off this weekend and will compete Nov. 16 at the NCAA regional race in Waverly, Iowa.
