Softball team hits the road

The UND softball team will continue its traveling this weekend when it heads to Oxford, Ohio for a five-game Miami Ohio Tournament.

With a 10-game losing streak behind it, North Dakota will look to avenge the early portion of its season.

That feat was nearly accomplished last weekend when UND clinched a one-run lead over New Mexico State in the fourth inning last Sunday, but fell victim to a comeback effort from the Aggies and a 9-4 loss.

One day prior, the teams hit much higher — New Mexico eventually edging North Dakota 19-13 thanks to a combined eight home runs for both teams.

This weekend, though, North Dakota is looking to pace itself by starting on a winning note when it will face Oakland and Miami University on Friday.

Robert Morris and Detroit will await North Dakota Saturday before the Green and White end the tournament Sunday after facing Oakland again.
