Baseball: The Huskies' MAC Tournament hopes took a hit this weekend as they were swept by Western Michigan. NIU fell to the Broncos in a 13-9 slugfest to begin the three-game set on Friday. On Saturday, the Huskies nearly tied the game in the top of the ninth, but WMU was able to get the last out on a play at the plate and hold on for a 5-4 victory. The trip closed out with a 6-1 loss Sunday.

Track & Field: Northern Illinois posted a program-best 53.33 points at the MAC Outdoor Championships to take eighth place. Janay Mitchell won the conference's 100 meters title by recording the top times in the prelims and the final. In addition, the quartet of Chanel Kellyman, Roneisha Frye, Mitchell and Rasheta Butler dominated the 4x100 relay to take first, beating second place Western Michigan by nearly a half-second. Additionally, Roneisha Frye also got All-MAC honors for her second-place finish in the 100 hurdles, setting a school record at 13.63 in the finals.

Baseball will be the lone team in action this week as they close out their regular season with a busy week. NIU travels to Milwaukee to face the Panthers on Tuesday, then returns home Thursday to start a three-game, MAC regular season-ending series with Ball State at Ralph McKinzie Field.
