Track and Field

Seattle University Track and Field team saw their meet at the University of Washington (UW) thrown into disarray as the first waves of snowmageddon struck Seattle.

Though an indoor meet, many of the Husky Classic’s events had to be moved up from Saturday to Friday.

First-year Regie Grady broke her personal best in the 400-meter, finishing in 1:00.14. Redshirt Senior Caylah Lunning finished the same event in 59.54 and also jumped 5.00 meters in the long jump. In the 60-meter hurdles, Junior Michelle Newblom finished with a time of 9.36.

The Redhawks will return to UW on Feb. 15 to compete in the Last Chance College Elite Meet.


The Seattle U Women’s Tennis team traveled just south to Edgewood Washington to meet up with the University of Portland (UP).
The Redhawks fell 1-6 against the UP Pilots; Sophomore Kyra Jung took the only singles victory for Seattle U, defeating UP’s Raphaelle LeBlanc 6-2 and then 6-0.

Jung also paired up with Sophomore Hannah Gianan in doubles play and earned the Redhawks’ only doubles win over UP.

The Redhawks will take on the University of Puget Sound at the Amy Yee Tennis Center on Feb. 15-17.


Kicking off their 2019 season, the Seattle U Softball team skipped out on the snow and traveled to balmy Tempe, Arizona to compete in this years Kajikawa Classic.

In the first game of the classic and the season, the Redhawks fell 5-4 to Bradley University. Bouncing back the next day, the team showed off their offensive, defensive, and pitching prowesses in an 8-0 victory over Weber State University.

In the tournament’s second day the Redhawks took on two PAC- 12 powerhouses in Oregon State University and Stanford University, losing both games by a score of 4-6.

In the game against Stanford, Sophomore Ally Choate went 4-4 at the plate. The outfielder hit a triple, scored a run, and earned an RBI.

In the final day of the tournament the Redhawks fell to the PAC-12’s University of Oregon, again losing by a slim margin of 6-8.

The Redhawks will have another weekend packed full of games as they head to the Boyd Gaming Rebel Classic in Las Vegas, Nevada Feb. 15-17.


The Seattle U Women’s basketball team escaped Seattle’s snowpocalypse only to find themselves in equally cold—though far less snowy— Orem, Utah.

The Redhawks fell 54-63 to Utah Valley University (UVU), putting their season record at 1-21.

In yet another close match that slipped away, the Redhawks were competitive in the first half, down by just four points at halftime. However, the team simply could not muster enough offense in the second half as they shot just 28.6 percent from the floor and 8.3 percent from beyond the arc.

Junior Joana Alves was a bright spot, going 8-8 at the free-throw line and putting up 20 points and seven rebounds.

The Redhawks return home to face the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley on Feb. 14 and New Mexico State University on Feb. 16.
