If Shoreland Lutheran girls basketball coach Holly Bahr walks into Madrigrano Gymnasium shortly before tip-off tonight, she has a good excuse.
Prior to her team’s WIAA Division-4 regional semifinal at St. Joseph, the fourth-year Shoreland coach will be sitting in the stands at Tarble Arena, rooting on the Wisconsin Lutheran College women’s squad in the first round of the NCAA Division III Tournament. WLC (24-3) will take its school-record 23-game winning streak into the contest against second-ranked Hope College (27-0).
SOMERS — Under normal circumstances, the quarterfinals of a conference tournament wouldn’t mean that a regular-season conference co-champion is playing for its national tournament life.
But that’s just the scenario the second-seeded UW-Parkside men’s basketball team may be in when it faces seventh-seeded Missouri-St. Louis 6 p.m. Friday in a Great Lakes Valley Conference Tournament quarterfinal at the Ford Center in Evansville, Ind.

So far in the 2013-14 season the UW-Parkside men’s basketball team has captured its second consecutive Great Lakes Valley Conference East Division title, won a school-record 15 GLVC games and posted its second 20-win season in a row for the first time since 1986-87.
Three players largely responsible for those accomplishments were recognized when the GLVC released its all-conference teams on Tuesday.
Under the direction of second-year coach Daniel Esposito, the UW-Parkside baseball team is eyeing its first winning season in nine years.
The Rangers are 102-265 (.277) in the past eight seasons following a stellar 45-win campaign in 2005 under former coach Tracy Archuleta.

Chicago Cubs fans may not have to “wait ’til next year.”
No, not to win a championship or just win period, that is at least one season away. But what Cubs fans won’t have to wait for is more building blocks arriving at Wrigley Field.
