Sliding into the season

Tim Downer

Northern Kentucky University’s baseball team kicked off the season last week. The Norse broke into the national polls as they were able to knock off Grand Valley State and Wisconsin-Parkside. They came into the most recent poll at No. 24. Grand Valley State was ranked No. 8 when NKU beat them in the final game of a double-header Feb. 25. The game was highlighted by a grand slam hit by Matt Wagers.
