To say that Saturday was a cold and damp day would be an understatement. Players, coaches, and spectators alike were soaked to the bone after the matches held at Seattle University and Willamette University. Despite the rain, teams stated they had a great time!
Willamette University hosted Lewis & Clark and Western Oregon, where they played a round robin style of 10s.
Seattle University played three 40 minute mini matches, first against Eastern Washington University and third against the University of Puget Sound. UPS and EWU played the second mini match.
Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, Whitman College was not able to travel to Seattle U.
This Saturday Whitman, University of Puget Sound, and Willamette will be traveling to Lewis & Clark. The match will likely see a combined Lewis & Clark/Whitman team versus a combined UPS/Willamette team. Unfortunately, neither Western Oregon University nor Seattle University will be traveling to EWU as planned. It seems the torrential rains combined with the stress of midterm has taken its toll, causing many a cold amongst the players.
Players of the match:
Emma Eikermann and Claire West from Lewis & Clark
Kari Millstein from Willamette
Miranda Eisen, Ashley Rot, and Summer Herout from University of Puget Sound
Jenna Abbassi, Emily Ludwig, Miranda and Mikhail from Seattle University
Jess and Alyssa (ROOKIES!!!) and Lorie Ledoux from Eastern Washington University
Western Oregon University’s #8 was given player of the match by Willamette, however without a roster, we do not know who wore #8.
