With a double-header sweep of Mt. Aloysius, the baseball team's record stands at 20-22. IUP is currently fourth in the PSAC West standings, but could be bumped from a playoff spot with two Lock Haven wins in their last four games. IUP is finished with PSAC West play.
Stephanie Bianco scored three goals against seventh ranked Gannon, but the Crimson Hawks dropped to 4-9 on the season with the loss. The lacrosse team completes the season at Seton Hill on April 25.
Erin Holloway and Jenny Shaffer combined to allow only one run and six hits to pitch IUP to a doubleheader sweep over Clarion that forced a coin toss to determine whether the softball team advanced to next week's PSAC tournament. Unfortunately, Mansfield won the coin toss and IUP’s season is over. IUP won by scores of 4-0 and 4-1 to finish in a third place tie with Mansfield in the PSAC Central with 6-10 division records. The two teams split their four games and had identical records versus Lock Haven, Bloomsbug, and Clarion, the other three teams in the division. With all on-field tiebreakers exhausted, a coin toss was the determining factor.
The tennis team finished the season with a 5-4 win at Shippensburg as Megan Kuhns and Emily Shubra led with way with singles victories.

Other men's event winners included Harris in the long jump with a distance of 7.05 meters and Ceasar Westbrook in the triple jump with a best effort of 14.06. Westbrook was also second behind Harris in the long jump at 6.85. The team won the team title over second place California.
Tamika Taylor won the 100 meters and long jump and Maddy Outman took both hurdles in the women's competition while Tristan Taylor sprinted to victories in the men's 100 and 200 meters and all three were on a winning relay team at the Ed Fry Invitational hosted by IUP at Miller Stadium. The former IUP Open was renamed in honor of Fry, who is retiring after the season following a four-decade career as track and field and cross country coach at IUP. The team won the team title over second place Clarion.
