Oakland started out the week bringing home another win against DePaul in Volleyball. Women’s Soccer continued on the rough road thus far in the season, facing a 3-2 loss against Kent State University on Sept. 12. They started to turn the tide in games with a 1-1 tie against Youngstown State University on Sept. 16.

Heading to Ann Arbor, the University of Michigan’s volleyball team accepted defeat against North Carolina in a 3-2 loss, while both Women’s and Men’s Soccer represented — with the women away against Cincinnati and men at home against Chicago State — both ending their games on top 2-1. 

Women’s Golf ended Day 1 at the Wolverine Invitational in first and finalized their first place out of 16 on Sept 14 — day 2 of the Invitational. On the other hand, the men accepted the loss against Maryland with a 2-1 defeat.
