Bruzikova collects MIAA weekly tennis honor

State briefs

Martina Bruzikova was named the MIAA Women’s Tennis Athlete of the Week, the league announced on Monday.

The junior member of the No. 37-ranked Northeastern State women’s tennis team was tabbed with her first-career weekly accolade after recording a perfect 6-0 mark this past week.

She conceded just one game combined in her three singles matches at the No. 3 position, and she posted two 8-0 wins in doubles action with sophomore teammate Barbora Jirickova. Bruzikova has now won 16 consecutive singles matches.

This is the second time a RiverHawk has earned the weekly award, as freshman Kristina Savchenkov was bestowed the honor on Feb. 19.

Northeastern State and Southwest Baptist are the only two schools to pick up multiple women’s tennis athlete of the week accolades.

NSU (16-2, 7-1 MIAA) returns home at 2 p.m. Thursday against Lindenwood University.

Schaef resigns as SWOSU basketball coach

WEATHERFORD — Charlie Schaef has resigned as the men’s basketball coach at Southwestern Oklahoma State after four seasons.

Southwestern is an NCAA Division II team. It moved from the Lone Star Conference to the newly formed league two seasons ago.

  • 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.
