FLUSHING, N.Y. (Sept. 17, 2018) - After a wild weekend in Queens College athletics with both soccer teams picking up a victory in conference play and tennis faring well at the ITA Regional Tournament, there is sure to be a great deal of buzz surrounding the QC Knights going into this week. Here's what's on tap:

NOTES: Volleyball will host its first home match of the season on Tuesday (Sept. 18) in non-conference play against the Clippers of Concordia (N.Y.). The Knights started the year on a tough nine-match road trip playing stiff competition across the region and are looking to pick up their first win of the year against a winless Concordia squad that has only played five matches thus far this season. Queens will then go back on th road for two more matches, in conference play against Mercy and Bridgeport on Friday and Saturday.
In the meantime, women's soccer will have a two-match week after scoring a 7-1 triumph over Lincoln (Pa.) for its first 'W' of the year this past Saturday. The Knights square off with the Falcons of Bentley University on Thursday (Sept. 20) and host Saint Thomas Aquinas in conference action on to kick off the weekend. The match-up with STAC will be the first half of a doubleheader as the men's team will play immediately afterwards.
The tennis teams continue their play in the final day of the ITA East Regional Tournament on Monday (Sept. 17) with the Knights threatening to make the championships in both doubles competitions and women's singles. The Knights will play at Saint Thomas Aquinas in ECC competition on Friday afternoon.
