This Weekend’s Biggest Events

Men’s and women’s track and field take Iowa

With warm weather quickly approaching, both the North Dakota State men’s and women’s track and field teams are becoming increasingly busy. However, as the weather improves, so does the team’s performances. Consistently setting records in each and every meet, NDSU proves to be a team to look out for.

After hosting an outdoor meet last weekend, both teams look to travel to the Drake Relays in Des Moines, as well as the Kip Janvrin Open in Indianola, Iowa, where they will compete both Friday and Saturday.

Fresh off plenty of broken personal records last weekend as well as seven titles taken by the men’s team and four for the women’s team, the Bison seem to have everything in order as its season comes to a close. As they prepare for the Summit League Outdoor Championships held in Vermillion, S.D., on May 12-14, the team looks to keep its upward march in both the NDSU record books and the NCAA standings.

Baseball hosts Oral Roberts for trio of games

Following last weekend’s three-game series at home where the team went 2-1, the Bison look to continue to improve. Currently sitting with a record of 20-18, the team is vying to collect a few more wins as they ease into the end of its season.

After hosting the University of Minnesota on Tuesday, the team has enjoyed playing in front of its home fans in a nine-game streak at home.

With a busy weekend, the Bison are lucky to have the depth that they do. Recently earning his first win on the mound was freshman Jordan Harms, who, in the same week, won Summit League Pitcher of the Week.

Softball heads to University of South Dakota for three games

Similar to the rest of the spring sports teams, NDSU’s softball team has yet another busy weekend. Coming off of a sweep last weekend against Western Illinois University, the team looks to improve its already impressive 30-13 record this weekend when they travel to the University of South Dakota. The pressure is on as the team looks to continue its winning streak, which reached 22 after Sunday’s win.

One player who the team could use once again this weekend is junior catcher Alyssa Reina, who won Summit League Catcher of the Week after she went 8-for-10 on the weekend with three doubles, a triple and two home runs. Reina also won the Female Bison Pride award Monday at the Green and Gold Gala.

Men’s golf competes at Summit League Championship

Falling on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of this weekend and week is the men’s golf’s Summit League Championship, hosted in Newton, Kansas, at Sand Creek Station.

While the team started off strong in the fall with its kickoff meet, it has struggled a little bit as a whole as the season went on. With one of its better finishes in its final tournament of the regular season, the team looks to make a final impression on the season to wrap up the year.
