Wintry weather wipes out Redhawks' baseball game vs. Arkansas

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

The Southeast Missouri State baseball team never got a chance to spring an upset Tuesday.

Southeast's scheduled game at the University of Arkansas was called off due to wintry conditions in Fayetteville, Ark. The contest will not be made up.

The Redhawks (2-1) will play their home opener this weekend at Capaha Field.

Southeast will host Northern Colorado at 2 p.m. Friday, the start of a four-game series that will also feature a 1 p.m. doubleheader Saturday and a noon contest Sunday.

Track athlete honored

Southeast sophomore Brandon Colbert is the Ohio Valley Conference male track athlete of the week.

Colbert set a career-best in the shot put during Friday's home meet with a distance of 58 feet, 4 1/2 inches.

That performance is the best in the OVC this indoor season and provisionally qualified him for the NCAA championships.

Southeast will compete in the OVC indoor championships Friday and Saturday in Nashville, Tenn.
