Soccer

Seattle U’s Women’s Soccer team was on fire this week. Not only did they earn a win against CSU Bakersfield 4-3 on the road, but also at home on Sunday against Chicago State, 3-1.

Redshirt senior Isabelle Butterfield, first-year Bailey Hall, and sophomore Kelsey Eagle scored in this second WAC win of the week.

Golf

The women’s golf team made exciting improvements in their second outing of the season at the 2018 Rose City Collegiate hosted by Portland State University. The golfers placed sixth overall out of eleven teams.

Junior Krystal Hu and senior Yen Ting Wong played stunningly this week in particular.

Hu finished in the field of 66, securing 3rd place.

Wong, competing as an individual, hit one-under first-round and tied for sixth place.

Volleyball

Seattle U Women’s Volleyball went against Utah Valley last Thursday. The Wolverines snagged the win with the 15-8 final, but four players—led by first-year Even Kerschenbaum with 13—had double-figure kills.

Middle-blocker Maja Stojanovic and setter Shae Harris, both seniors, stated their goals for their respective final years at Seattle U. Part of it, Harris said, is to have fun and enjoy all of the work they’ve put in.

The seniors also described some new techniques they’ve implemented. Until recently, many effective techniques have been reserved for only men’s volleyball.

These techniques could lead to positive outcomes in future games for Women’s Volleyball.

“We want to work on confidence and consistency overall,” Harris said.

“Obviously, we’re just as capable,” Strojanovic said.

Tennis

Over last weekend , the women’s tennis team traveled to Spokane, Washington to play in Gonzaga University’s Bulldog Invite at the Stevens Center.

Challenges manifested as sophomore Emmett Jung reached the semifinals before sustaining a shoulder injury forcing a withdrawal. Kali McCollister nearly made it to the semifinals in the Zag Singles Finals, but then fell to Montana State’s Annie Walker 6-3, 6-2.

In the Bulldogs Singles Flight, though, sophomore Hannah Gianan won the entire bracket after defeating Montana State’s Sara Iverson 6-3, 6-1, 7-5.

Swimming

Seattle U Women’s swimming opened this year’s season on Saturday. Although they fell to Northern Colorado at 179-65, many swimmers on the team placed.

Junior Maddie Rapp and sophomore Bryn Lasher took second in the 200 and 100 butterfly, respectively.

First-year Emma McGill took second in the 100 breaststroke and timed at 1:11.20, Darian Himes, junior, right behind her at 1:11.92.

First-year Sarah Carr seized third in the 100 freestyle and the 200 freestyle relay team also took second place.

Seattle U will host Pacific Lutheran this Friday.
