MARCH 6: Raider Weekly Preview

MILWAUKEE - The Raiders send three student-athletes to NCAA Championships this week as Jerica Kotarak returns to the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships and a pair head off to the NCAA Wrestling Championships in Devin Mahnke and Austin Bellile. Baseball and Lacrosse are also in their second week of competitions and Men's Volleyball has won 11 of its last 12 matches.

Ian's Pizza RAIDER OF THE WEEK: Quin Krisik, Men's Volleyball

LACROSSE (0-2, 0-0 MLC - L2)

Lacrosse opened the season with a tough trip to Texas, falling to Southwestern and Whittier. The Whittier game was tied 9-9 early in the fourth quarter before the Poets scored the final three goals of the game. Clay Gustafson extended his point-scoring streak to 18-straight games and leads the team with seven points (2g, 5a). Thomas Reid has a team-high three goals. The Raiders return to action at North Central Wednesday and opens league play at Concordia Wisconsin Saturday.

MEN'S VOLLEYBALL (11-2, 8-1 MCVL - W3)

Men's Volleyball saw its eight-match win streak snapped at #8 Carthage Wednesday, despite pushing the home team to five sets. It was a historic match for the Raiders as Quin Krisik posted the second triple-double in school history (10 kills, 49 assists, 14 digs), Logan Baerenwald had 27 kills (third-most in a match in school history), and Danny Martens had 23 digs (second-most). MSOE leads the nation with 13.52 kills per set and Krisik is No. 1 with 10.98 assists per set. The team hosts Cardinal Stritch Wednesday, then takes a road trip to Fontbonne and Greenville this weekend after defeating both teams in Milwaukee Feb. 17-18.

WOMEN'S TRACK & FIELD

Jerica Kotarak qualified for the NCAA Championships this weekend at North Central in Naperville, Illinois. She is currently 16th in the nation in the triple jump at 37-9 1/2 and ranked 17th with a long jump of 18-7. The NCAA accepted 17 entries in each event. The NCAA Championships are Friday and Saturday.

WRESTLING

Devin Mahnke and Austin Bellile qualified for the NCAA Championships, which are Friday and Saturday at UW-La Crosse.

Coincidentally, those qualifiers came at the 197 and 285-pound weights. Bellile is ranked #7 at 285 pounds in the final D3wrestle.com rankings of the season and Mahnke is the top contender at 197, just outside the top-10.

BASEBALL (2-6, 0-0 NACC - L1)

Baseball returns to Wisconsin after opening the season in Florida with a tough slate of games. The Raiders did post wins over Waynesburg and Rose-Hulman while in the Sunshine State.
