Listen live Saturday afternoon on the Slocum Sports Network as Kalamazoo College hosts Adrian College in a college softball doubleheader. Both squads are looking to build momentum entering the final half of MIAA play, with both needing strong runs to have a shot at making the conference tournament.
Kalamazoo’s league schedule was front-loaded against the top four squads to start April, with the Hornets going 1-7 in that stretch. They grabbed a split against Trine, ranked 4th nationally at the time, but came up short against St. Mary’s (6-0, 5-0), Alma (4-1, 8-1), and Hope (4-0, 4-3). Overall, Kalamazoo sits at 10-14.
Adrian holds a 8-18 overall mark and a 2-4 MIAA record. They fell to Hope (5-1, 5-1) and St. Mary’s (12-0, 4-1), but knocked off Calvin 3-1, 5-0. Adrian hosted Kalamazoo last season, with the Hornets winning 7-2 (8 innings) and 6-2. Two seasons ago, the Bulldogs got a split at Kalamazoo.
