Baseball

The Kansas State baseball team (15-11, 2-4) looks to add to its win streak when it takes on Arkansas-Pine Bluff and Texas this week.

K-State is coming in off of a dominant outing against No. 3 Texas Tech, where the team dismantled the Red Raiders 10-4 in the last game of a weekend series — which the Wildcats won.

The Wildcats will take on the Pine Bluff, who is just 2-16 on the season and has lost eight in a row. The Golden Lions have lost every meeting against K-State.

The two-game series kicks off at Tointon Family Stadium at 6 p.m. Tuesday and concludes the next day same place, same time. The game can be streamed through Big 12 Now on ESPN+ and can be heard on the radio on KMAN.

After the two-game series with Arkansas-Pine Bluff, the Wildcats hit the road for a matchup with Big 12 Conference opponent Texas. The Longhorns (20-8) are on a three-game win streak and have a real home-field advantage this year going 12-2 at home thus far.

The three-game series begins at 6:30 p.m. Friday. Game two is at 2:30 p.m. Saturday and game three is at 1 p.m. Sunday. The games can be broadcasted on the Longhorn Network on ESPN+, with audio through KMAN radio.

Tennis

The tennis team (7-7) is slated for two matches this week with the first of the two being against Baylor on Friday at 3 p.m. and then Texas on Sunday at 11 a.m.

The Wildcats are undefeated at home this year with a perfect 6-0 record at Mike Gross Tennis Stadium and will close out the season with a five-match homestand.

Soccer

K-State soccer hosts its last home game of the spring season against Big 12 opponent Iowa State this Saturday. The Wildcats (3-7-2) and the Cyclones (2-6-4) both come into the game with tie streaks. K-State has tied in its last two games while Iowa State has tied in its last four games.

The last time these two met, K-State came away with the win, beating the Cyclones 2-0.

The Wildcats will look to have the same outcome when they meet this weekend at Buser Family Park. The match time is set for a noon kickoff and can be seen on Big 12 Now on ESPN+.

Men’s Golf

The men’s golf team is back in action this week, traveling to Missouri for the MU Invitational.

The Wildcats look to bounce back after coming last at Old Waverly. K-State has found success in Columbia before, finishing second of 19 teams in 2018 and notched another second-place finish in 2019.

Graduate student Jacob Ekland returns to the lineup following wrist surgery. Ekland finished a career-best second in 2019 after shooting 13-under par 203, the fifth-lowest score in school history, at the event.

The Missouri Tiger Invitational begins Monday and will conclude the next day.

Rowing

K-State rowing gets back in action this week with the Tulsa Triangular tournament.

The Wildcats earned bronze in its last outing at the Sunshine State Invitational and look to be even more dominant when it travels to Tulsa this Saturday, April 10.

Track and Field

The Track and Field team travels to Tucson Arizona for the Jim Click Invitational. The three-day event begins Thursday and continues until Saturday.
