NAIA Cascade Conference Round-Up: Carroll squads sweep

The Saints of Carroll College had a big week, sweeping their opposition from Evergreen State College and Northwest University, keeping the men's squad in postseason contention and maintaining the top spot in the league on the women's side.

It was also a good week for the ladies this side of the Cascades for contenders College of Idaho and Eastern Oregon. The Yotes swept Warner Pacific and nearby Eastern Oregon to nab sole possession second in the table. The Mountaineers won their opener against third-place Rocky Mountain on the road before playing to a stalemate at College of Idaho that went to overtime before the Yotes prevailed.

The Rocky Mountain men, meanwhile, dominated Eastern Oregon and Warner Pacific to maintain their one-loss record at the top of the table along with Corban, which kept pace with two wins of their own.
