Sports to watch out for this weekend

The Lawrence Vikings have a busy weekend ahead. There are a number of events happening close to campus over the next few days. All of the varsity sports currently in season will be competing.

On Saturday, the Men’s Tennis team has two home competitions. At 9 a.m. the team will face Grinnell. At 3 p.m. they will again take the court, this time against Cornell. These two conference opponents provide an opportunity for the Vikings to improve their conference standing after a disappointing loss to Lake Forest last weekend.

The baseball team will be facing St. Norbert twice this weekend, first at St. Norbert on Saturday, and second at home on Sunday. The Vikings are coming off back-to-back losses against Ripon last weekend and a mid-week loss to UW-Oshkosh. Wins this weekend are greatly needed.

The track team will also be traveling to St. Norbert this weekend. Coming off a list of impressive individual performances last weekend, the team will be looking to continue the run up to the conference meet.

The golf team has its final competitions before conference this Saturday. The team will be playing at the St. Norbert College Invitational. The conference meet will be on April 28.

The softball team will be furthest from home this weekend, facing Knox away on Saturday. After beating Beloit twice on April 20, the team will be hoping to take down another conference rival.
