INW NAIA & NWAC College Recap – Week Four: Great Falls men continue roll, NWAC cross-over concludes in East favor

Amidst the NAIA action this week, the University of Great Falls continued its fantastic start to the season with a big win over future NAIA side Walla Walla University and then a pair of narrow road wins against Westminster and McPherson College in Utah.

In the NWAC, cross-over play between the East and South Divisions came to a close. The lopsided results continued with the East men finishing with a dominant 21-4-5 record (79-22 GD) against their counterparts while the women's results were a bit closer at 19-12-11 (73-49 GD). The men's domination was so great that Clark has a commanding eight-point lead in their division thanks to a 3-0-3 record while Chemeketa, second, was the only other team to get a win. The North Idaho College (4-0-1 vs the South) and Columbia Basin College (2-0-3) men went unbeaten while on the ladies side it was Treasure Valley CC (6-0-0) with an amazing sweep considering every other program other than North Idaho (2-0-4) lost at least twice.

Here is a rundown of the area schools and their conferences as well as how players from the Inland Northwest performed around the nation in the past week.
