INW College Recap - Week 11: Frontier & Cascade - Conference playoffs set begin for all but CCC men

Eastern Oregon finished their turnaround season with a victory over the College of Idaho to claim the fifth season in only their second postseason appearance in program history while on the men's side of the CCC, the College of Idaho remains in the running for the fourth and final seed going into their final game, though they need a home victory Saturday versus seventh-place Warner Pacific and a loss by Evergreen at last-place Northwest Christian.

Conference play finished up in the Frontier Conference, which will play host to the Unaffiliated Group tournaments courtesy of top seed Rocky Mountain College. The RMC men wrapped things up by avenging last week's loss to Great Falls and the ladies were the only team to sweep the final-week series between the three Montana-based schools which saw Carroll split as Great Falls lost to both rivals.
