Baseball (17-20,7-8): Despite losing three out of four this week, Longwood had a solid week taking Virginia Tech to extra innings (the Hokies were ranked #22 in the country a week ago) and beating the first Top 25 opponent in program history, Campbell, on Friday night on ESPN3. The Lancers are barely hanging on to a tournament spot and next weekend’s series against Gardner-Webb is HUGE for the team’s hopes.
Last Week: @ Virginia Tech L 7-5 (10), @ Campbell W 3-2, L 1-0, L 4-1
This Week: 4/17 vs James Madison, 4/19-21 vs Garnder-Webb (3 Game Series)
Softball (29-11,11-5): After a disappointing home loss to Liberty that snapped Longwood’s 8 game win streak, Kathy Riley’s squad rebounded by sweeping Radford. The Lancers will look to get some revenge on Liberty this week before heading to Gainesville to take on nation’s third ranked team Florida.
Last Week: vs Liberty L 8-7, @ Radford W 9-5, W 12-3
This Week: 4/15 at Liberty (DH), 4/20-21 at #3 Florida (3 Game Series)
Lacrosse (9-6,4-2): After a loss to Virginia Tech, the Lancers rebounded to pummel Presbyterian on the road. LU now finishes their regular season this week with a out-of-conference game against American and then a pivotal match up against Liberty for seeding.
Last Week: L 14-8 at Virginia Tech, W 21-8 at Presbyterian
This Week: 4/17 at American, 4/20 vs Liberty
Men’s Tennis: (5-14,0-8): The men’s squad went zero for four last week losing to Radford, Richmond, George Washington, and something called ASA Junior College. The team embarks on the Big South Tournament this week at Winthrop.
Women’s Tennis (6-13,1-8): The women’s squad had a successful week grabbing two wins, including the Tennis program’s first Big South win over Presbyterian. The women also head to the Big South championship this week, which is also being held at Winthrop.
Best of luck to the tennis teams and women’s golf as they compete in the Big South Tournaments this week!
