The RiverHawks (17-14, 5-5 MIAA) look to improve as they face MIAA competition against Fort Hays State University on March 25 and Nebraska-Kearney on March 26. In the RiverHawks last eight games they were 5-3, but as in every sport NSU looks to continue winning as the season continues on.

"I thought we bounced back from opening conference weekend and we managed to even up our record in conference at 5-5," said Clay Davis, head coach.

Fort Hays State is currently 6-6 in the MIAA and has an overall record of 12-17. Upon entering the match-up with NSU, the Tigers have won their last three games and seventh in the MIAA standings.

Nebraska-Kearney is currently 5-7 in the MIAA and tenth in the conference standings. Overall the Lopers are 14-16 and have won their last six games.

"It's two huge matchups and we know what we have to do to continue to improve in the conference rankings," said Paige Gann, Muskogee sophomore.

NSU has a competitive weekend ahead at home as they face both teams in doubleheader competition. Wins for the RiverHawks could see them continue to improve in MIAA conference play.

"We want four big wins this weekend, we're defending our home turf and we want to continue to win," said Jessica Boone, Berryhill sophomore.

The RiverHawks first game is at 1 p.m. on March 25 against Fort Hays State at RiverHawks Park.
