Baseball drops series at ULL

As many of you might already be aware, the Western Kentucky baseball team continued its overall struggles this past weekend at Louisiana-Lafayette – winning on Friday, but losing on both Saturday and Sunday to drop to 33-20, 14-13 in league play.

WKU now sits basically in seventh place within the Sun Belt Conference with three games to play against third place Middle Tennessee this weekend at Nick Denes Field.

Nowell has spent the past three seasons at WKU as the strength and conditioning coach, working almost exclusively with the football program. 

He was hired in 2007 by former coach David Elson after spending the previous three seasons at Mississippi State.
