Rangers take on defending national champs

3

There was some grassroots campaigning going on around the UW-Parkside campus this week as the women’s soccer team prepared to host this weekend’s NCAA Division II Tournament Midwest Regional at Wood Road Field.

“Everyone that’s had classes with each of us told kids (to come) out,” UWP senior defender and leading scorer Emily Konior said. “First hundred students are free. Yeah, we know it’s really cold, but if you’re going to come out, just bundle up, bring blankets, bring whatever you need to stay warm. When we have a loud crowd, it really kind of pumps us up more and makes us more excited to play.”

Parkside will play defending national champion Grand Valley State (Mich.) in the second of two regional semifinals at 1:30 p.m. Friday.

Carthage opens its classic against St. Francis

Intimidation probably won’t be a factor for the St. Francis (Ill.) men’s basketball team when it visits Carthage College Friday night.
