Keene State College wins 5 of 6 games during Spring Weekend

It will be 10 years next month since I graduated from Keene State College but I still enjoy getting to campus whenever I can. Last weekend was no exception as the Owls had a full sports Saturday schedule to kick off Spring Weekend on campus. The baseball team was in doubleheader action against Western Connecticut State, softball (doubleheader) and Women’s Lacrosse each played Rhode Island College and the Men’s Lacrosse team capped off the night against conference rival Eastern Connecticut State.
