NSU alters spring slate

Northeastern State’s softball team moved its doubleheader at Central Oklahoma from Wednesday to April 10. The game had to be moved because of rainfall in the Edmond area.

The same reason was given for NSU’s baseball team having to move its doubleheader with Pittsburg State from Wednesday to Thursday. The two teams will meet in Pittsburg, Kan., on Thursday at 2 p.m.

NSU women finish 3rd in Arizona

LITCHFIELD PARK, Ariz. — The Northeastern State women's golf team improved four positions to claim third place in Tuesdays's final round of the Grand Canyon Invitational. The tournament was held at the 6,000 yard, par-70 Parkland Course of the Wigwam Resort.

The RiverHawks improved their overall score posted an eight-stroke improvement from the first round to the final round (323-315=638) and fired the second-lowest round of the day. Tournament host Grand Canyon, ranked No. 8 in the country, took first place with a two-round score of 619 (310-309). No. 2 St. Edward's placed second (305-323=628), 10 strokes ahead of NSU.

“This is the one of the biggest and strongest NCAA Division II fields of the year, and we were able to show that we can compete with some of the best programs in the nation,” NSU coach Scott Varner said. “We are currently receiving votes in the national polls, and hopefully this performance will get us back in the top 25 rankings.”

NSU was led in scoring by senior Kelsey Kirkpatrick, who fired the day's lowest round of 73 to leapfrog 25 spots and finish tied for eighth at 11-over-par 155 (82-73). Kirkpatrick tied with Sarah McComish and Dani O'Keefe CSU-Chico State.

  • Sooners shifting several positions

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

  • Lindley, Tom.jpg Better police needed for college teams enticed to cheat

    The NCAA once cracked down on colleges that went too far luring top prospects, then it targeted teams that lathered players with special treatment. That was until the NCAA's get-tough approach backfired, rendering it ineffective and creating an opportunity for those who want to play dirty.

  • Really one true champion?

    I decided to spare the colleagues in front of me – and myself from making a scene – by holding back flipping my table at the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days in Dallas.
    I had become exhausted by the constant use and misrepresentation by the Big 12 with their moniker of “One True Champion.” If they are going to live with the slogan, then they need to abide by that slogan.
    Perhaps its a simple case that they are keeping constant with the poor math of the 10-team Big 12 Conference.
