A victory coupled with a Kentucky Wesleyan loss at Southern Indiana would give the UW-Parkside women and Coach Jenny Kenesie a share of their third straight division crown; a defeat could knock the Rangers out of the top four and force the team to play in the opening round of the GLVC Tournament on Sunday, March 3.
