Hello Bearcat Fan! Many teams settled into their old bad habits this week, while others rose from the ashes like something that rises from ashes. Let’s go to the news!
Baseball won their fifth series in a row, after Pacific Lutheran gave them a run for their money in game two, winning 5-1. Baseball now holds a 7-2 record in the conference, and will meet the Loggers for three games this weekend in Tacoma.
Women’s & Men’s Golf have a busy week ahead, first battling it out at Bar Run Monday & Tuesday, then hosting the Willamette Valley Cup over the weekend.
Lacrosse found mixed results in Washington, defeating Whitworth, but losing by ten goals to Whitman. They will face a dominant George Fox side this Saturday in Newberg.
Softball lost three of four against Pacific Lutheran, but showed grit overcoming a five run deficit to win game two.
Men’s Tennis fell 3-6 at the University of Puget Sound, to stand at 0-4 in the conference.
Women’s Tennis on the other hand stood tall against the Loggers ,winning 8-1. UPS was forced to forfeit three matches due to lack of players. Each squad will host none other than the mighty and widely known East Texas Baptist Tigers on Wednesday.
Zoe Heino (‘26) and William Hennum (‘25) each took first in the 3000m steeplechase at the Lane Community College Open Track & Field meet. Whitley Stepp took second in the high jump based on number of trials, after tying the height of first place jumper Rachel Noyce.
Consider in the coming weeks: Does the Willamette community care about sports?
