Not even the temporary absence of a home stadium can stop the Pioneers' momentum. The team is ranked #2 in the Heart of America Athletic Conference (HAAC). Wins over Baker (#3), Benedictine (#5), Peru State (#7), and Evangel (#4) have propelled MNU to their spot behind Missouri Valley.

The Pioneers qualified for the first round of NAIA playoffs facing the #7 University of the Cumberlands Patriots Nov. 16. The Pioneers are making their sixth consecutive playoff appearance while the Patriots are making their fourth appearance in the last five years.

The 2012 men’s soccer team has advanced to the HAAC tournament semifinals, positioning themselves at #4 in the conference as they advance to the tournament against Baker, Benedictine, and Missouri Valley.

An incredible six players were named HAAC players of the week this season, while Trent Remmich, Chris Eriksson, Aurelien Norest, and Rodrigo Rivas were named to the first team in the HAAC all-conference team, making them eligible for All-American awards after the national tournament.

The 2012 volleyball team continues to dominate in a season of unstoppable momentum, ranking #1 in the HAAC. Qualifying for the NAIA National Tournament, the Pioneers will face unranked St. Thomas-Houston in the opening round Nov. 16 at MNU.
The #18 Pioneers are 24-4 winning 13 straight matches. Four starters: Taryn Salum, Linjun Ji, Megan Hayes, and Molly Brewster were named 1st-Team All- Conference, with a Player of the Year nod for Brewster.
