Track and field prepare for postseason

After the Virginia Challenge last weekend, the Bradley’s track and field teams find themselves in a race against time as well as the two races scheduled for this Saturday. Luckily, that’s what the team is good at. Head coach Darren Gauson split up his team…

Softball mops one win in rainy week

If Bradley’s softball team thought it were finally done with rain-outs, Wednesday changed its mind pretty quickly. The Braves had a doubleheader scheduled for Wednesday afternoon against Illinois State, and a rainy Wednesday moved those to Thursday. The rain almost kept them playing, but the…
