LMU Baseball saw their eight-game win streak come to an end on Friday, but won back-to-back games against Santa Clara University at home to remain unbeaten in WCC series this season. The 9-3 Lions finished up their homestand against University of Washington on Monday, and head out on the road on Easter weekend to take on St. Mary’s College.

Saturday, April 15 at Santa Clara, 12 p.m.

LMU Softball ran into a red-hot BYU team this past weekend, and got off to an unfavorable 0-3 start in the WCC. They’ll have a chance to get back on track this week with a three-game series against Santa Clara. In the doubleheader on Saturday, LMU was held to just three hits in the first game, and was held scoreless despite tallying seven hits in the second game. Junior third baseman Alicia Brown went 3-for-6 on the day.

Women’s Water Polo, 12-13 overall, 4-2 Gold Coast Conference

Thursday, April 6 at California Baptist, 4 p.m. Riverside, California.

Saturday, April 8 vs. Azusa Pacific, 12 p.m. Burns Aquatic Center.

Two big conference wins in the past week have propelled LMU Women’s Water Polo to a 4-2 record in the Gold Coast Conference. A 13-8 victory over Asuza Pacific University on Saturday helped the Lions keep their fourth place position in the standings with just two games to play until the WCC tournament. If the season ended today, LMU would play California Baptist in the first round of the tournament. The Lions beat Cal Baptist 8-6 last Thursday.

Men’s Tennis, 5-13 overall, 1-4 WCC

Thursday, April 13 vs. San Diego, 2 p.m. LMU Tennis Center.

Saturday, April 15 vs. BYU, 1 p.m. LMU Tennis Center.

LMU Men’s Tennis continued their slide in the WCC this past week, dropping two conference matches on the road. In both matches, the Lions won the doubles point, but were unable to win crucial points on the singles courts in order to seal team victories. With four matches to play in the regular season, the Lions will be looking to salvage a win as they return home. The Lions will host San Diego on Thursday before taking on BYU on Saturday.

Women’s Tennis, 10-7 overall, 12-3 WCC

Thursday, April 13 at San Diego, 11 a.m. San Diego, California

Saturday, April 15 at BYU, 12 p.m. Provo, Utah

After splitting two conference matches a week ago, LMU women’s tennis heads out on the road to face University of San Diego, who currently sits second in the WCC rankings. After squaring off with the Toreros Thursday, the Lions will fly to Utah to face BYU, bringing them within two matches of the end of the regular season.

Beach Volleyball, 9-11 overall

Wednesday, April 12 vs. Cal Poly, 1:30 p.m. Manhattan Beach, California

Wednesday, April 12 vs. Long Beach State, 3 p.m. Manhattan Beach, California

LMU Beach Volleyball went 2-1 last Saturday, earning wins against USC and Arizona State. Up next, they take on Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for the second time in many weeks. Last Wednesday, the Lions defeated the Mustangs by a final score of 3-2. Immediately following that match, LMU will play Long Beach State. With two wins, LMU could reach the .500 mark for the first time this season, with just two matches to play.
