The other six teams in the Panthers’ region are DePauw (Ind.), Carnegie-Mellon, Ohio Northern, Millikin (Ill.), Wittenberg (Ohio) and Bethany (W. Va.). The winner of the regional will advance to the quarterfinals of the NCAA Division III Women’s Volleyball Championships in Oshkosh, Wis., on Nov. 17.
