The Fast Break Sports Report March 20
Hello Bearcat fan! Last week’s Bearcats days gave the campus a glimpse of the approaching onslaught of first-years. Pledge loyalty now… while you can. Let’s go to the news!
Men’s Golf shot their way to first place at SOU’s Battle at Bar Run on Tuesday. In the women’s division, Mallory Tolliver (‘26), Anushka Srivastav (‘24), and Kennedy Raphelt (‘24) represented a partial squad. At the time this edition of the fast break is being written, results are still making their way in for the Willamette Valley Cup tournament. However, the men were in first place as of the end of Saturday.
Softball went 3-1 against Pacific, including a 12 inning nail biter. The wins helped widen the gap between the third place Bearcats and the fourth place Whitworth.
Baseball stumbled, losing three games to Puget Sound over the weekend. All were low scoring affairs with the Cats losing by two runs in each. The squad will look to redeem itself this week against Linfield and Whitworth.
Rapid Fire! First place winners from the George Fox University Rich Allen Classic Field & Track meet are: William Hennum (‘24, 1500m), Clara Thomas (‘26, 400m hurdles), Whitley Stepp (‘26, high jump), and Annabelle Smith (‘26, long jump). The Willamette-Corban dual meet and the Willamette invitational take place this week at home.
A 7-18 loss to George Fox over the weekend has extended Lacrosse’s losing streak to two. They will head up I-5 to take on the Loggers on Wednesday, then host the Chapman Panthers up from California on Saturday.
The Tigers of East Texas Baptist hunted down Women’s & Men’s Tennis, defeating them 5-1 and 7-2 respectively.
Consider in the coming weeks: What off-campus sporting activities are available to the Willamette community and, alternatively, if you were told that you had to live your life exactly as it is, again and again for eternity, would you rejoice?
