The standings are beginning to sort themselves out as the seasons enter their second full month. That has made it clear that there are some must-see contests on the horizon this week. Be sure to check the schedules before heading to outdoor games to see if the weather has forced a change.

Field hockey

Monday

Padua (2-3) vs. Wilmington Charter (4-0), 3:30 p.m. at Chase Fieldhouse
