**For Immediate Release**
Four OPSU Teams Hit the Road for Big Weekend Games

Goodwell, OK - A huge weekend of exciting college athletics is in store for Oklahoma Panhandle State University teams. Unfortunately for area fans, all of the games are on the road, but a good deal of the action will be on the airwaves.

Friday through Sunday, the Lady Aggie softball team, coached by Nikki Cothran, will face tough competition in the West Texas A&M tournament. The games will be played in Amarillo.

Also on Friday, the OPSU baseball team, coached by Jason Kueffler, will be in Ada to face East Central Oklahoma in a doubleheader. From there, they will head to Texas to face Angelo State on Sunday.

The basketball season may be winding down, but things are heating up for the Heartland Conference playoffs. The Aggies, under head coach Curt Connor, have five regular season games left, and the Jerry Olson coached Lady Aggies have four – all of them very important for purposes of seeding and location in the conference tournament.

Currently, the men’s basketball team is 3-4 in league play and is locked in a tight battle with Western New Mexico and St. Mary’s for third and fourth place. Only the top four teams will qualify for the league tournament. On Friday, the Aggies will be in San Antonio to play the University of the Incarnate Word, and they’ll stay in the same city for a Saturday battle with St. Mary’s.

The Lady Aggies, 6-2 in the league, trail only Montana State-Billings (7-1) in the race for the top seed in the post season tourney. The women’s team will follow the same weekend trail as do the men with a Thursday game against Incarnate Word and a Saturday contest with St. Mary’s.

All of the basketball games will be carried by KGYN radio, live via internet broadcast. The Incarnate Word women’s tip-off is set for 6:00 p.m. Thursday, and immediately following the men will play. On Saturday, the St. Mary’s broadcast will begin with the Lady Aggie game at 5:30 p.m., followed by the men’s game. Log on to and click on Athletics to find the link. Fans may also listen to the games on PTCI’s DITV channel 150.
