After his team lost two of three men’s conference games to Salt Lake Community College last month, North Idaho College coach Jared Phay just wanted a chance to win the Scenic West Athletic Conference at the end.

Phay has his wish.

SWAC regular-season play concludes this weekend and 14th-ranked NIC (25-3, 10-3) is tied with SLCC (23-4, 10-3), which is ranked 13th. To the conference winner goes the spoils – the right to host the Region 18 men’s and women’s tournaments next week.

Both teams face road doubleheaders beginning Friday. NIC has a pair at Snow College (18-10, 5-8) and SLCC is at College of Eastern Utah (21-6, 7-6).

To be able to host the tournaments, NIC must capture the title outright. SLCC will host in the event of a tie.

“I think we’ve got a real good shot if we win two,” Phay said. “We’ve got our work cut out, but I think it’s going to be tough for Salt Lake to sweep.”
