The women’s rowing team opened up their spring season hosting Kansas State in Catoosa, Oklahoma last weekend. Though they trailed in every race, head coach Kevin Harris said, “It was a good race even though we didn’t win. I am pleased from what I saw in the team. We are technically solid and have a lot of power. There is some real speed in this crew. We were close to a fast team so I am pretty pleased with how we race. All of our NCAA boats stepped up their game.” The women’s next event is this upcoming Saturday in Catoosa against Creighton.
The women’s tennis team went 3–1 in the past few weeks, including their first home win in over a month over conference foe Memphis. This win over Memphis, and the road wins against UCF and USF put the Golden Hurricane’s conference record at 3–0 with only two weeks to go before the American Athletic Conference Tournament, which Tulsa will host. The men’s tennis team went 4–2 in the same span, unfortunately falling out of the top-25. After the win over UCF and a big win over the 18th ranked Bulls from USF on Sunday hopefully they can work their way back into the top.
The Golden Hurricane softball team went 9–5 over the break, including a three-game sweep over Memphis to open up conference play. Tulsa finished off the tournament season at the Jeannine McHaney Memorial Classic, where they went 4–1 beating Mississippi Valley State and Texas Tech. Now they are in the heart of the schedule, which includes tough matchups in the American Athletic Conference against UCF and USF, both of which are in the top-50 nationally ranked. Tulsa avoided a sweep against USF this past weekend with a pitching gem by Caitlin Still, who threw a complete game shutout, edging out the Bulls 1–0. After a non-conference game against the University of Arkansas, the Golden Hurricane will host #24 UCF for a three game series on Friday and Saturday.
