Kopp took the loss for game one despite allowing just one earned run. In game two, Taylor Kurts suffered the loss after tissing a complete game and allowing just three earned runs.
This weekend the Spartans are scheduled to play at Nebraska Weskeyan on Saturday, April 7. Weather is expected to possibly change the scheduled doubleheader in the Lincoln, Neb. area. We will post on social media as soon as we hear about any changes to the upcoming schedule.
