Tomorrow night at our own Brick Breeden Fieldhouse, the Bobcat Men will host Portland State in the quarterfinal playoff matchup. The Cats locked up the three seed after traveling to Missoula and defeating UM in the final regular season Cat/Griz matchup. Because the game tomorrow is a playoff game, no tickets are given away to students, however, thanks to huge support from local company Harrington's Pepsi, 200 tickets were purchased to give away to our student body. Tickets are going fast and hopefully it will be another great weekend to be a Bobcat...actually every day is a great day to be a Bobcat!
Our Bobcat Women have also locked up a post season birth as well and finish up the regular season tomorrow night against Northern Arizona on the road. Last weekend, they started the sweep over our rival UM with a great road victory! They dropped a heartbreaker last night to Northern Colorado by 2, but I have confidence they'll rebound tomorrow...pun intended!
Last weekend also saw the 2010 Big Sky Conference Indoor Track and Field Championship hosted by Montana State University at the Brick. The MSU Men took second and the Women took fifth with 20 student-athletes earning medals! Junior Asa Staven earned the honor of being Field Athlete of the Meet which is voted on by the coaches from around the conference.
Congrats to all of our student-athletes for making MSU proud with their performances in and out of the classroom! Go Cats!
