RiverHawk softball prepares to take on Newman University

The RiverHawks (20-15) step out of conference play this week with a road trip against Newman University on March 29. The RiverHawks look to go 2-0 in the double header.

“We are playing well as of late,” said Clay Davis, head coach.  “Our offense and pitching have started picking it up a little bit and are starting to look good.”

 

The RiverHawks went 3-1 over the weekend against MIAA competition. NSU swept Nebraska-Kearney in two games, while splitting two against Fort Hays State who took two from Newman earlier this season.

 

“My game plan against Newman is to throw my game and take it a batter at a time,” said Kayce Wooldridge, Tulsa senior.

Newman University has an overall record of 12-23. The Jets went 17-39 last season and lost to the number one and two seeds in the Heartland Conference tournament.

“Against Newman, I am looking to focus on the game that I know how to play and just have fun,” said Haley Acrey, Baytown, Texas freshman.

Although the RiverHawks are only hitting on average three runs higher than their opponents on the season, they make the most out of those opportunities by slugging a solid .432 as a team with 56 doubles and 25 home runs in 35 games.

“It’s always a tough road trip going down and back in the same day,” said Davis. “We will look to try to get in some quality at bats with our younger hitters and come home 2-0.”

The RiverHawks first game of the double header is at 3 p.m. on March 29 against Newman University at the Newman Softball Field in Wichita, Kansas.
