TAHLEQUAH, Okla. -- Northeastern State University's spring sports are having successful seasons as the end of the academic year approaches.
Leading the way is the tennis program (22-3), which recently finished runner-up at the 2013 Mid-American Intercollegiate Athletics Association Women’s Tennis Championship in Springfield, Mo. The women’s golf team also placed second at the 2013 MIAA Women’s Golf Championship in Smithville, Mo., while the men came in sixth at the MIAA Men’s Golf Championship.
The softball team (24-20, 14-8 MIAA) heads into the final weekend of the regular season in fifth place in the league standings. With eight teams taking the field for the postseason tournament, the RiverHawks have all but ensured themselves a spot in their first conference tourney since 2007.
NSU baseball (25-19, 23-18 MIAA) is accomplishing big things on the field this season. NSU sits in sixth place in the league standings with five games remaining on the schedule.
