Friday, the Bluejays split with Kansas Wesleyan Friday. The women swept the Coyotes, 9-0, while the men lost, 6-3.

The women lost to Southwestern, 7-2, Monday in a game rescheduled from Saturday. Coach John Ruder said matches were closer than the scores indicated.

Coming—Tabor was scheduled to play at Friends Monday and will host McPherson tomorrow at 1 p.m. The Bluejays will host Ottawa Saturday at noon.
