Through almost the halfway point of the season, one could almost have motion sickness from the up-and-down nature of each day.

Hesston College’s baseball team was swept by Northern Oklahoma-Tonkawa, but took a doubleheader from McPherson College’s junior varsity to get back to 11-11 on the season. The Larks dropped the first game 10-0 in a run-rule shortened version to the Mavericks, followed by an 11-1 loss to the hosts on March 10. Hesston returned to .500 with a 6-3 and a 9-7 victory over the Bulldogs on March 12.

The Mavericks were efficient against the Lark pitching in game one as NOC-Tonkawa pounded out 12 hits. Unfortunately, the Larks’ suspect defense aided the Mavericks with three errors as Bradley McBride worked the 4-and-one-third inning before the game-ending run was scored. 

Hesston could only manage three hits, one being a double by Cooper Morgan in the loss.
