The Birds are coming off of a tough road swing where they lost three of their last four matches. The team currently stands at 7-12 for the year.

The homestand will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 7 p.m. when the Birds take on the Lady Generals of Sheridan College. The Generals currently have a record of 7-8 and have won three of their last four matches.

The match will begin at 6 p.m. The Cougars sit at 14-6 for the season and have won their last four matches.

For the fourth home game, the Birds will take on the Western Wyoming Community College Mustangs.
