BALDWIN CITY, Kan. – The weather seems to change constantly during this time of year in Kansas.

They were originally planned to take place on Saturday, March 26th.

“Friday’s weather looks a little better in regards to the temperature which will put our student-athletes at less risk for injury,” said Baker athletic director Theresa Yetmar. “We’re working with our professors to make this a smooth transition for our student-athletes in regards to missing class time.”
