What is a Challenge League?

A Challenge League is a schedule of Head-to-Head contests, between two schools.

Another term that is often used is a Dual Meet.  This is a common style of competition for sports like swimming, tennis, or wrestling, and Beach Volleyball in NCAA competition. In the MVC sponsored Challenge League, each dual meet will feature 4 doubles teams from each school. There will be three girls’ teams ranked by ability, and one boy’s team. Each doubles team plays against the corresponding ranked team from the opposing school. Points are awarded based on the overall team results each meet:

      • Win all 4 matches = 3 points
      • Win 3 matches = 2 points
      • Win 2 matches = 1 point
