The Tabor College baseball squad went 1-4 this week, going winless against MidAmerica Nazarene and William Jewell, then splitting a doubleheader Saturday with Central Christian in McPherson.
“As a whole, at this time of the season, it’s pretty obvious—when we play good baseball, that’s when we compete,” coach Chad Newhard said. “But when we give teams extra outs with walks and errors, that’s when we have a hard time competing.”
Tabor’s only win of the week came by a 6-3 margin in the second half of the set with Central Christian. Central defeated Tabor 7-6...

Written by Andrew Ottoson Wednesday, 12 March 2008 11:36The Tabor College softball team saw its losing streak increase to four games with an 0-for-3 showing at the McPherson tournament Saturday.
“We got thumped,” coach Johnny Basset said. “The first game was good. Avila won 30-plus games last year, and we were beating them 3-1 with an inning left to play.”
Tabor misplayed a bunt, opening the floodgates on a four-run inning and went on to lose, 5-3. The Bluejays also lost to Morningside 16-0, then to Haskell Indian Nations, 7-2, in a chilly night contest.
“Morningside is easily the best team we’ll see all year,” Basset said. “The game against Haskell started at 7 p.m. with the temperature already down to 34 degrees.”

Written by Hillsboro Free Press Wednesday, 12 March 2008 11:29As of this weekend, 17 high school seniors and nine college transfershave signed letters of intent to play football at Tabor College,according to head coach Mike Gottsch, in his second year.
“It’s nice to have a full year in here with my staff,” Gottsch said. “Last year I just got here and only had a couple of leads when I walked in the door.”

“Our goal was to bring in transfers for the spring to help us in areas where we were thin and inexperienced,” Gottsch said. “Offensive and defensive linemen are our high priority needs.”
