Hello Bearcats Fans. Bearcat athletes went and put the “W’’ in “Willamette” this week. Let’s go to the news!

Softball locked up Puget Sound for four games straight, the Loggers earning only nine runs over the whole weekend. The Bearcats might feel fatigued however during their six upcoming games against Linfield and PLU this week.

While the softball team seemed to have all the answers, The Housing Department reported via email to the Kaneko Community that some “questionable activities” occurred around the diamond early in the week. All we can verifiably report is that softball’s opponents might not be the only ones getting smoked around here.

Baseball swept George Fox 3-0, including two games which ended within one run. Head coach Aaron Swick earned his 300th win with the Bearcats. PLU will visit for four games at the Spec this weekend.

Whitely Step (‘26) went and did it again at the Willamette Opener Track and Field meet, winning both the high and triple jump. Elijah Jones (‘26), Kenzie Lee (‘26), Grace Kosmicki (‘26), Zoe Heino (‘26), Kat Thornton (‘24), and David Teso (‘26) all won their respective events.

Women’s & Men’s Tennis were the exception, collectively losing 0-36 over four games this weekend against Linfield and Lewis & Clark. Nothing to see here, carry on. Each squad will head north to the take on the Tacoma schools over the weekend.

Lacrosse picked up two more wins against Pacific and Linfield to bring their season to 5-1. They will make their Whits trip over the weekend.

Consider in the coming weeks: Where did all the first-year track athletes come from, what do they want, and should you feel safe?
