March 21st Sports Rundown

The Hawkeyes and Cyclones will begin conference play in softball and baseball this weekend, high school football schedules are expected to be announced Wednesday, and University of Iowa Head Women’s Basketball Lisa Bluder recaps an outstanding season in Iowa City.

College Softball:

The Iowa Hawkeye women’s softball team will be in action tonight for their midweek games after going 2 and 1 during the Creighton Invitational over the past weekend. The Iowa ladies check in at 12 and 10 this year before a doubleheader against South Dakota State from Iowa City tonight. Then the Michigan Wolverines will be in town beginning Friday for a 3-game Big Ten opening series.

The Iowa State Cyclones softball team also kicks off their conference schedule this weekend. The Cyclones went 2 and 3 last weekend in the Woo Pig Classic in Fayetteville, Arkansas and now check in at 17-16 this year. Iowa State will be back in action Friday in the first game of a 3-game Big 12 opening series in Stillwater against Oklahoma State.


College Baseball:

The Iowa Hawkeyes baseball team has a busy schedule this week. The Hawkeyes fell short in a comeback attempt against Saint Louis last night, falling 7-6 but they’ll be back in action from Iowa City tonight as they host Loras College. Then Friday they’ll get a visit from the Indiana Hoosiers to kick off the big ten season with a 3-game weekend set. The Hawkeyes check in at 11 and 7 this season.


Women’s College Basketball:

Well it’s been a few days since the Iowa Women’s basketball team bowed out of the NCAA Tournament with a loss to Creighton in the opening round. Head Coach Lisa Bluder had a chance to reflect on the season that was and how tough it is to move on after how close this team was.

The Hawkeyes head coach also talked about how the future is bright and there is no reason this team can’t take another step next year.

The Hawkeyes finished 24 and 8 this year and made the NCAA tournament for the first time in 2 seasons.


High School Football:

We should know the exact high school football schedules for both the 2018 and 2019 seasons by the end of the day Wednesday. The Iowa High School Athletic Association tweeted Tuesday that schools will learn of their opponents, dates, and home/away matchups for the next two years on Wednesday.
As soon as the schedules for Webster City, Clarion Goldfield Dows, Eagle Grove, and South Hamilton are released they will be announced in our KQWC Sports Rundown.
