NSU briefs

MUSKOGEE — The Northeastern State softball team took two road games from Bacone College on Tuesday afternoon.

The RiverHawks (21-19) came from behind to win the series opener 9-4 in eight innings, and they picked up an 11-2 run-rule victory in the nightcap over the Lady Warriors (17-20).

NSU 9, BC 4 (first game)

Bacone plated single runs in the first and third innings, and it took runs in the fifth and sixth innings from the visitors to send the contest into extra innings.

Northeastern State plated seven runs in the eighth frame to secure the come-from-behind victory after the Lady Warriors could only respond with two.

NSU junior Navada Campos was 2-for-3 with three runs batted in, two runs scored and a solo home run in the fifth. Kelsi Hilderbrandt and Amanda Harjo were both 3-for-5 for the Riverhawks, and Harjo drove home two and scored twice.

NSU freshman reshman Kayce Wooldridge (7-10) threw a complete game to earn the victory. She allowed four runs on eight hits.

NSU 11, BC 2 (second game)

The offense carried over to the second game for the RiverHawks, as the visitors plated runs in all six innings en route to the run-rule triumph.

Campos, Harjo, and junior Megan Robison all hit home runs. Hilderbrandt sent two over the wall and finished with three runs batted in. Harjo and Robison both scored twice and drove home two.

NSU sophomore Shelby Enloe (6-1) threw the first five innings and earned the win in the circle.

NSU is now scheduled for a neutral-site doubleheader against Nebraska Kearney on Thursday in Bolivar, Mo.

NSU baseball falls to Rogers State

TULSA — The Northeastern State baseball team dropped a 5-2 decision to Rogers State University Tuesday afternoon at ONEOK Field.

The RiverHawks (21-18) and Hillcats (30-13) battled at the home of the Tulsa Drillers for the second-straight year, with RSU picking up its second straight win in the series.

Rogers State, serving as the home team, scored in the first inning to take the early lead. Northeastern State tied the game in the top of the third when junior Cody Robinson recorded a fielder’s choice RBI to plate senior Trent Wilkins.

The Hillcats responded with two in the home half of the frame and added another pair of runs in the bottom of the sixth. NSU could only muster one more run in the game, a marker from senior Chad Davidson in the top of the ninth, as the visitors on the scoreboard lost by the 5-2 margin.

Rogers State outhit the RiverHawks 7-5, and the teams combined for seven errors.

Wilkins was 1-for-3 with an RBI and a run scored to pace Northeastern State. Sophomore Hayden Walch (3-5) started on the mound and took the loss after allowing three runs on four hits in 3 2/3 innings.

T.J. Law (1-1) earned the win on the mound after tossing three frames of relief. He did not concede a run and only allowed one hit.

NSU will stay out of conference for a doubleheader with Oklahoma Panhandle State that will begin at 11 a.m. today at Thomas C. Rousey Field.

    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

    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.
