Hello Bearcat fan! Sound the alarm because the spring-season conference championships are upon us. I would joke, but there’s nothing more serious than potential NWC glory. Let’s go to the news!
Lacrosse went 3-0 against Linfield and the Whits, including a 13-12 shootout at home against Whitman, and secured #2 a spot in the conference semifinals this Saturday. Details about playoffs TBA.
Golfers are also gearing up for conference championships. The men look to enter the tournament as contenders, lurking just two points behind #1 Whitworth.
Three wins over Lewis & Clark ended Softball’s drought. The squad will pack up their season on that high note.
Both Tennis teams failed to find a win against Pacific, Whitworth or George Fox.
Baseball’s grudge match against Linfield resulted in a disappointing 1-2 series loss, thus proving jinxes are 100% real. Don’t count them out just yet though, they too will head to the conference tournament this weekend at the #3 spot.
Track & Field will of course also head to the conference championship. It won’t be much of a trip however as this year’s event will take place on Willamette’s own Charles Bowles track (on the 21st and 22nd).
Consider in the coming week: Will the Basecats turn themselves around in time to clinch the title? Can Lacrosse slingshot Newberg’s Goliath? Which of your favorite golfers, throwers and runners will crack under the weight of conference history, and which will stand tall? The Collegian will be there through it all, more or less on time, guaranteed.
