This Week in SU Sports by Shenandoah Athletic Department

Two home contests against Bridgewater highlight the week.
Field Hockey (9-4, 4-0 ODAC): The field hockey team, winners of seven straight, can clinch a first round bye at the upcoming ODAC Tournament with wins over Bridgewater on Tuesday and at Lynchburg Friday. The Eagles and Hornets are two of the three teams picked ahead of SU in the pre-season poll, but Shenandoah now is the league co-leader at 4-0 and has the best overall record in the conference.
Last season, BC defeated SU in overtime while LC was a 5-0 victor in the conference opener for both schools.
Women's Soccer (5-8-1, 5-3 ODAC): Women's soccer is at home twice this week, on Wednesday at 7 versus Bridgewater and on Saturday at 2 versus Emory and Henry.
The Bridgewater series has been as close as they come - Shenandoah is 2-1-3 against the Eagles dating back to 2008 and all three of the decided contests have been by one goal.
Shenandoah was a 1-0 winner at Bridgewater last season thanks to a Danielle Burris goal.
Emory and Henry tied SU 0-0 in a game played through a driving rainstorm last season despite the Hornets putting 11 shots on goal.
Men's Soccer (4-9, 1-5 ODAC): The men's soccer team opens up Wednesday's doubleheader on the Sprint Field at Shentel Stadium turf with a 4 p.m. contest against Washington and Lee.
One week ago, Shenandoah snapped a 17-match ODAC losing streak with a 2-1 victory at Bridgewater.
The Hornets will look to make it two of three as they host the 8-3, 3-3 Generals. Last season, W&L was a 3-0 winner in an October 9 contest played in Lexington.
SU finishes the week with a 6 p.m. game at Guilford Saturday evening.
Football (3-2, 1-1 ODAC): The football team, fresh off of a 47-31 victory over Guilford, travels to Catholic for a 1 p.m. Saturday contest.
SU will be seeking to match the 2013 win total with a win over the Cardinals in the 11th lifetime gridiron matchup between the two schools.
CUA, 2-3 and 0-2 in the ODAC, defeated Shenandoah 37-7 last season.
Cross Country: The men's and women's cross country teams have their final regular season meets of the season this Saturday at the Gettysburg Invitational.
Following these races, both squads will be off until competing at the ODAC Championships on November 1 in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Volleyball (13-8, 3-3 ODAC): The volleyball team, which opened the week with a 3-0 non-league home win over Penn State - Mont Alto Monday night, takes to the road this weekend for ODAC matches at Randolph-Macon Friday and Virginia Wesleyan Saturday.
The Yellow Jackets, at 6-0, are tied for first in the league with VWC just one match back at 5-1.
