It was a short, but impactful, week in The Master’s College Athletic Department. The women’s basketball team prematurely ended its season in the first round of the NAIA National Tournament on Wednesday, while Mustangs baseball struggled to hold onto first place in the Golden State Athletic Conference in its series against San Diego Christian College.

Women’s Basketball

The Master’s College women’s basketball team’s season came to an unexpected halt Wednesday morning when the Bethel University Wildcats slashed the Lady Mustangs 82-67 in the first round of the NAIA National Tournament in the Frankfort Convention Center in Frankfort, Ky.

Notably, it was the first upset of the tournament as the seventh-seeded Wildcats knocked off the second-seeded Lady Mustangs.

For the second straight year, the Lady Mustangs’ season concluded in the first round of the national tournament.
In her final game as a Lady Mustang, Jacquelyn Marshall paced TMC by scoring 20 points. Megan Lindsley followed by putting up 12 more. Marshall and Bianca Cubello each yanked down eight rebounds, while Whitney Best tallied a team-high eight assists.

The Lady Mustangs will graduate Marshall and Zoe Scott. The senior duo led TMC to a 24-9 season and a second place finish in the conference.

“Our team has accomplished a lot this year, and even though it’s disappointing to lose in the first round, we know that one loss, one game, or one moment doesn’t define us,” commented TMC head coach Dan Waldeck. “These ladies have represented our school and program in a consistent way all season and I’m so proud of them. This was a special group and I’ll take the minutes and accomplishments of this season.”


TMC baseball only shut down San Diego Christian’s high-powered offense for one game of the teams’ three-game series. But it was enough to salvage the finale and pull to within a half game of first place in conference.

On Friday, the NAIA 22nd-ranked Hawks posted a 6-3 victory over the 12th-ranked Mustangs.
TMC split two games against the San Diego Christian Hawks on Saturday at Pete Reese Field, losing 7-1 and winning 4-2.

In effect, the teams split their season series at three wins each.

Things don’t get any easier for the Mustangs as the ninth-ranked Concordia Eagles roll into town on Friday for a weekend series at Reese Field. First pitch is set for 3 p.m.

Looking Ahead
Mustangs men’s golf competes in its second-to-last tournament of the season on Monday. The squad will tee off at the Battle At Primm Golf Tournament in Primm, Nevada. The tournament will run through Tuesday afternoon.
