SOFTBALL

Starting Wednesday, Apr. 20, through Saturday, Apr. 23, the North Central University (NCU) softball team had a doubleheader everyday resulting in eight games in four days. The Rams went 3-5 in the eight-game stint including two wins over NCCAA opponent Maranatha Baptist University and a win over Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC) opponent Northland College. NCU and the University of Northwestern (UNW) hosted a mini UMAC tournament over the weekend in which teams played a slew of conference opponents. The Rams had two days to rest before jumping back into action against Martin Luther College Tuesday, Apr. 26, for two more games. NCU dropped both games with scores of 7-3 and 6-2. The record of the Rams is currently 12-25, 3-15 in the conference, giving them the last spot in the UMAC rankings. NCU will take on UNW Friday, Apr. 29 for just one game at 4 p.m. at UNW.

BASEBALL

After a spring full of uncooperative weather, the NCU baseball finally got a week of no postponed games. First, the Rams hosted UMAC opponent Northland College and split the doubleheader winning the first 5-4 and losing the second 19-17. Then NCU took on the number one seed in the UMAC, Crown College, for a three game weekend series. The Rams dropped all three games. Ending the weekend, NCU faced the University of Minnesota Morris (UMM) on Sunday, Apr. 24. After leading for the beginning of the game, the Rams couldn’t keep up with the offense of UMM and were overcome 17-6. Now facing the second ranked team in the UMAC, NCU played against UNW and lost 19-7 when UNW scored eleven runs in the ninth inning. With the loss, the Rams move to 6-10 on the season and 3-7 in the conference. The conference record ranks them fifth in the UMAC standings. The Rams get ready for three game series with the University of Wisconsin Superior beginning Friday, Apr. 29, at 3 p.m.

Teams competing included Augsburg University, St. Olaf, St. Thomas, Bethel Minnesota, Hamline University, and Macalester College. The Rams struggled to place against the bigger opponents, but senior Kayden Sund found his way to sixth place in the high jump with a height of 6’2.75”. The men’s 4x100m relay placed ninth with a time of 46.06 seconds composed of Jackson Omeja, Nehemiah Juaire, Tian Elder, and Carson Kleiber. The Rams next meet will be the Drake Alternative this Saturday, Apr. 30, hosted by Gustavus Adolphus College.

 

LACROSSE

Due to an unfortunate weekend of injuries, the NCU men’s lacrosse had to cancel the remainder of their season because of low numbers. The Rams ended the year with a record of 0-8.
