The Lawrence Vikings have been amazing throughout many disciplines the past month. Ranging from fencers to tennis players, the Vikings have toppled several schools.
The fencing team partook in the NCAA Regional at Columbus, Ohio. While the results were not the best, sophomore Aaron Reese sustained a 4-8 record at the regional, topping a very good season, giving the Vikings fans something to look forward to next year.
The softball team continues their season, facing diverse challenges throughout, but has picked up the pace over the last couple of games.
As for the men’s baseball team, they seem to be on a roll, having a 4-1 start to the conference. The Vikes dropped a contest at Grinnell. The senior outfielder Jacob Charon hit his 10th home run this season, setting up a new personal record very early on. Watch out for this slugger and all of the Vikes baseball team as they are off to a very steaming start;, we hope the Vikes do nothing but continue to excel. They will be facing Illinois College at home tomorrow morning
On the other side, after a trip to Hilton Head, South Carolina, the Men’s Tennis team came back for a long trip to Jacksonville, Illinois. They started off facing Illinois College, whom they swept 9-0 with statement wins from every single player. They then traveled about two hours to face Monmouth College, where they picked up another win, 7-2. This gives the Vikes a great start to their conference matches. Senior Cam Strawn was a standout player, picking up 4 total wins, as was first-year Dylan Delgado. They will next be playing this Wednesday at Ripon College, then come back home for the first time in the season for a conference match this Saturday for a double header against Cornell and Grinnell College at 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.
On Sunday, the Lady Vikes (women’s tennis) will be returning to the courts for a couple matches, facing two non-conference schools to top their very impressive season.
Come support all of your Vikings! Go Vikes!
