Another busy weekend of Maverick Athletics. Men's hockey is on the road at Wisconsin for a big WCHA series. The Mankato Freep's Shane Frederick previews the series HERE.
The women's hockey team travels to Bemidji to take on the Beavers while the Beavers hoops squads travel to Mankato this evening for a date with the Mavericks. Always great to play Bemidji State, but even better now that former Athletic Communications GA Dax Larson is working for BSU and making the trip down.
Speaking of Dax, he will be the guest on Maverick Magazine today at 10 am (CST) on KMSU. You can listen live HERE
The MSU swimming and diving team travel to the UW Stevens Point Invite this weekend while the Maverick Bowlers are in action in the Big Red Invitational hosted by the University of Nebraska.
Track and Field will spill their competition up over three venues this weekend. MSU will send participants to the Iowa State Open, the UW Stout Invite and the University of Minnesota in what expects to be another great weekend of Maverick track and field.
