The expectations of the Texas Wesleyan baseball team are to replicate the success that the program is known for: conference championships and trips to the NAIA National Tournament.Unfortunately for the Rams, the past two years have not met those expectations. After Friday's doubleheader sweep of Sterling, this year's team has a 5-1 record, the type of success that TWU coach Mike Jeffcoat hopes gets the Rams back into contention."We have been knocking on the door the last few years," Jeffcoat said. "We had to rebuild two years ago after winning the conference when every position had a senior. We had to reload, and some of the guys didn't end up as well as we expected."The lone loss for Texas Wesleyan was an 11-4 setback Tuesday at LaGrave Field to Oklahoma City, the Sooner Athletic Conference title favorite and a conference rival next season. The Rams swept a series against Mid-American Christian to open the season on Feb. 1-2 and are hoping to jell before they begin Red River Athletic Conference play on Feb.22"We have several big games coming up that we want to see if we can start jelling as a team," Jeffcoat said. "We are hoping to get our offense going before we enter conference play."TexAnns clinchThe Tarleton State women's basketball team (17-3, 11-2 LSC) clinched its 11th appearance in the Lone Star Conference tournament with a 75-48 win over Angelo State on Feb. 6.The TexAnns led wire-to-wire and featured Kiara Wright's 14th double-double of the season.
