Winona State marks anniversary of MSU's rise to top

(Continued)

And one of the odds things to come out of Minnesota State’s move to the Northern Sun six years ago was that Winona State has become this program’s biggest rival, almost across the board. Not St. Cloud State, not Augustana.

This is something of an anniversary for the Mavericks, who started the march toward the top of this conference and region with the victory at Winona State last season. It’s an opportunity for Winona State to begin its own climb, needing a victory to vault past Minnesota State in the South Division and possibly send a message that the future might be a little more crowded at the top of this league.
