News Releases

December 3, 2019 For Wheaton, No. 2 wasn't good enough While most programs would be delighted to post a winning percentage of .800, the Thunder were determined to not repeat the last two seasons, where they went 8-2 and finished as runners-up in the CCIW. Perhaps 12-0 is more their liking. Adam Turer has more.
November 23, 2019 Central, Chapman win in OT; SJU survives The Wheaton bracket, on the bottom left, saw three great games. Central rallied to beat UW-Oshkosh in overtime, St. John's survived a shootout with Aurora and Linfield and Chapman needed multiple extra periods to decide it out west.
