With both basketball teams officially done with competition for this athletic year, we are now headed smack into the quiet part of the year, when we just get baseball, track, and tennis to keep you alive until next month’s Spring Game.
But at least baseball is putting on a show so far this year. After suffering their worst loss of the season (based on opponent record) last week to Nebraska-Omaha, the Wildcats welcomed the Mavericks back to Tointon Family Stadium for a little revenge. This time, the BatCats used an impressive 10-run burst in the first four innings to put away the visitors 10-1 (Greg Woods, Mercury). The Wildcats improve to 15-6 on the season, and will take Wednesday and Thursday off as they prepare to start to conference schedule this weekend with a trip to Austin, TX to take on the currently-reeling Longhorns (TexasSports.com).
