We had some trouble finishing off teams this weekend, Otteman said about the weekend tournament. We took all our matches to a fifth game but were only able to finish two of the four.
Currently, the Oles conference record sits at 4-2, good enough for sixth place in the MIAC.
We set high goals for outselves, and right now we want to get in the top six [in the MIAC] and make the conference tournament, Jessica Levin 09 said.
The Oles will travel Moorhead, Minn., on Saturday to take on Concordia at 3 p.m.
