ST. JOSEPH, Mo. - The Missouri Western softball team has won its third-straight doubleheader sweep. The Griffons have also stretched its win streak to six games and plunging all the way up to No.4 in the MIAA standing.

MWSU is now (24-14, 11-5) and beat Nebraska Kearney 6-2 and 6-4 (12-18, 8-8), on Sunday, completing their weekend run.
The six-game win streak is the longest for the program since winning seven-straight in 2018.

"This team has done a really good job of bouncing back and looking at a game and a performance as what it is," Griffon head coach Jen Bagley-Trotter said. "It's something to learn from and move on, rather than an identity because we failed, so I think that's been a big part of this team's success and momentum here in the end."

The Griffons host Southwest Baptist (5-28, 2-6) on Tuesday in a re-scheduled series from earlier this season. Then MWSU travels to Missouri Southern (17-18, 8-10) on Friday and Pittsburg State (18-21, 6-8) on Saturday.

The warmer air has moved back into northwest Missouri and northeast Kansas bringing the heat and humidity back to the area. Cloud cover will stick around through mid to late morning Sunday. This will help to keep temperatures a little cooler than what we would see otherwise. Sunday will still get into the low 90s with a Heat Index around 100.
