WKU Sports

  • WKU Softball has been named to the Easton/NFCA Top 10 Academic Team.

    Softball: Hilltoppers Named Top-10 Easton/NFCA Academic Team: WKU Softball has been named to the Easton/NFCA Top 10 Academic Team ranking following the 2017 academic year. With a 3.569 cumulative GPA, the Hilltoppers ranked ninth among all Division I squads.

  • Football: Practice Report: With two weeks to prepare for its second Conference USA opponent of the season, the WKU offense hit Feix Field on Tuesday evening with a determination to execute, especially in red zone opportunities. In their previous game against Ball State, the Hilltoppers scored touchdowns in only 3-of-7 trips inside the 20, and offensive coordinator Junior Adams explained how the team has focused on that aspect.
  • Volleyball: Cavanaugh, Lucas Selected As 2017 Senior CLASS Award Candidates: WKU Volleyball seniors Alyssa Cavanaugh and Jessica Lucas have been announced as two of the 30 NCAA women’s volleyball student-athletes selected as candidates for the 2017 Senior CLASS Award. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition.

WKU in the News

  • Sanford turns focus to red zone work: In the opening game of the season, WKU was a cool 3-for-3 in the red zone – inside the 20-yard line – with three touchdowns during a 31-17 win over Eastern Kentucky. Since then? Well, there have been a couple hiccups. First-year WKU coach Mike Sanford wants to eliminate those hiccups. So much so that he added extra focus to red zone work in a move he hopes pays dividends at 7 p.m. CDT Saturday at Texas El Paso.
