Softball
Last Week: The RedHawks (17-19, 6-8 MAC) won the series against Kent State 2-1. In the first game, Miami fell by a 4-3 margin. Johniann Wahl led off the Miami offense with her seventh home run of the season. The RedHawks made a push in the sixth inning with RBI's coming from Kat Lee and Kaitlyn Gliha but ultimately fell short. Miami won the second game 4-3 in 11 innings. The RedHawks traded punches with the Golden Flashes much of the game before reaching a stalemate during extra innings. Lizzie Bollinger won the game for Miami with a walk-off single (Recap). The RedHawks battled back to win game three by a 3-2 score after being down 2-1. Gliha hit a two-out double in the bottom of the sixth to score two (Recap). This Week: Miami hosts Wright State for a non-conference doubleheader on Tuesday starting at 5 p.m. The RedHawks wrap up their home schedule with a three-game tilt with Ohio on Friday and Saturday.


Baseball
Last Week: Miami (21-11, 8-4 MAC) had a strong week, winning four of the five games it played. The RedHawks opened with a pair of midweek games as they hosted the Joe Nuxhall Classic. In the first game on Tuesday, MU trailed 5-0 early but rallied for a 6-5, walk-off win over the Musketeers (Recap). In the championship game on Wednesday against Cincinnati, the Red & White saw a 7-2 lead disappear and trailed 8-7 going into the bottom of the ninth. Miami clawed its way back again though as Hayden Senger leveled the score at 8-all with a run-scoring double down the left field line. Then, later on in the inning with the bases loaded and one out, Will Vogelgesang hit a high chopper to third, which saw the UC fielder touch third for out number two and throw to first to try to gun down Vogelgesang and send us to extras. However, the speedy Vogelgesang legged out the ground ball to earn Miami yet another walk-off win and back-to-back Joe Nuxhall Classic championships (Recap). The RedHawks hit the road for the weekend for a three-game series at Ball State, taking two out of three from the Cardinals. MU opened with a big 17-6 win but BSU rallied for a victory in game two of the Friday doubleheader, 13-12. Ross Haffey went a combined 7-for-9 on the day with five home runs, eight runs scored, 12 RBI and one double. He also drew two walks (Recap). Down 5-4 in the finale on Sunday, the RedHawks rallied for single tallies in the sixth and seventh innings before holding on late to take the series (Recap). This Week: Miami begins the week at Ohio State at 6:35 p.m. on Tuesday. The `Hawks then head to Northern Illinois for the weekend for a three-game series with the Huskies.

Golf
Last Week: Miami finished 12th at the Boilermaker Invitational on Saturday. The tournament went only two rounds after Sunday's final round was rained out. Senior Patrick Flavin was the RedHawks top finisher at even par in a tie for ninth. (Recap) This Week: Miami competes in the Robert Kepler Intercollegiate in Columbus this weekend. The RedHawks will play two rounds on Saturday and one final round of 18 holes on Sunday.

Tennis
Last Week: The RedHawks closed out their home schedule with a 6-1 Mid-American Conference victory over Bowling Green, giving them their third win in a row and improving their record to 9-8 (5-1 in the MAC). Miami got the best of the doubles session to remain perfect in doubles in conference matches, and got singles victories from senior Nelli Ponomareva, junior Emily Struble, and freshmen Milana Lysova, Lena Babunski, and Makenzie Myers to cruise to victory. (Recap) Next Week: Miami concludes the regular season with two road conference tilts. The `Hawks will take on Western Michigan Friday and follow it up with a match at Toledo on Sunday.


Track & Field
Last Week: The `Hawks completed their first home meet of the spring on Saturday. They came away with several wins and a host of personal records. Miami saw big performances from Sean Torpy and Christopher Torpy, who ran 1500m times that convert to near sub-four-minute miles, a feat just 500 Americans have ever accomplished. The duo, only in their sophomore year, are poised to help Miami's strong distance contingent as they look to score points at the Mid-American Conference meet at the end of the season. Alesha Vovk and Maria Scavuzzo finished first and second in the women's 1500m to lead a women's squad that is equally as powerful. On the field side, the young group showed their development with very strong performances in the men's and women's javelin. Carsen Cash was joined by freshmen Ben Cambria and Ben Artrip in posting javelin marks that placed all three of them in the top-10 in the MAC. (Friday Recap) (Saturday Recap). Next Week: Miami track travels to Columbus, Ohio on Saturday to compete in the Jesse Owens Classic.
