WKU men's golfers Brandon Beckham and Austin King moved into the top 20 individuals on Monday during the second round of the 2015 Conference USA Men's Golf Championships and helped move WKU up one spot to ninth with 18 holes to go.
WKU begins its final five-game week of the 2015 regular season on Tuesday when it hosts Austin Peay at Nick Denes Field in the first game of a home-and-home midweek series between the Hilltoppers and Governors. First pitch times for both contests are set for 6 p.m. (CT).
WKU softball's Miranda Kramer tied the Conference USA record after earning her seventh league Pitcher of the Week honor this season, the conference office announced Monday.
Setting a Conference USA record with the most strikeouts in a league game, Miranda Kramer fanned 18 batters through 11 innings of work, but the WKU softball team (29-10, 14-4) couldn't string together hits, falling 3-1 to Charlotte (23-24, 9-11) on Sunday afternoon.
WKU had its potential tying run in scoring position four times over the final four innings of Sunday's series finale against No. 16 Rice, but the Owls' pitching staff continually maneuvered out of jams to complete its sweep of the Hilltoppers with a 3-2 win at Nick Denes Field.
