The Lady Jacks, like their male counterparts, are starting to show improvement and gain needed momentum.

The women’s squad recorded quality victories over the University of South Dakota, the University of Sioux Falls, and Dordt College (IA).

Head coach Don Hanson said his young line-up is starting to gel nicely and make noticeable progress.

The Lady Jacks also lost a heart-breaker to Minnesota State-Mankato this past weekend, losing 5-4. This tough conference loss for the Rabbits dropped their season record to 3-6.

Looking ahead, the Lady Jacks have some important conference matches before the season ends.

MSU-Mankato will come calling again and the squad will also be facing in-state foe Augustana College before the end of the year.

The women’s squad will be traveling with the men this Wednesday to play the University of Sioux Falls at McKennan Park.

After the matches against USF, both the men and women will be packing their bags for a long journey down to Kansas to play in a tournament hosted by Emporia State University.
