Looking to defend their conference title, the Miami women’s softball team will begin Mid-American Conference (MAC) play this weekend against Kent State University.

Hockey to play No. 3 Denver in NCHC playoffs

The best part of the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (at least for the teams toward the bottom of the standings) is that everyone dances. That’s good news for the Miami RedHawks (7-25-2, 4-19-1 NCHC), who finished last out of eight teams in the conference. The bad news is the team has to play the No. 3 Denver Pioneers (25-8-1, 18-6 NCHC) this weekend in the NCHC Frozen Faceoff.

Miami will play its final home games of the 2021-22 season against No. 8 Minnesota Duluth this weekend. The team comes into the series on a pretty good stretch. They’re only 2-4 in their last six games, but the four losses came in close games to nationally ranked teams. In every game of the last six, the RedHawks have kept it competitive until the final buzzer.
