Basketball

This week the Seattle University Women’s Basketball team traveled to California as the season comes to a close. There they played against California Baptist University where they lost 86-64.

The team started strong, but couldn’t hold out against the Lancers with the score 39-41 at the end of the first half.

It was also senior week for the basketball team. The team celebrated Seniors Madeline Dopplick and Delaney McCann for their hard work and to congratulate them on graduation.

Dopplick was able to finish with 17 points and McCann added five points with two rebounds, a block, and a steal.

The team will be on the road next week to play against California Seattle University Bakersfield as the season wraps up for the basketball team.

Softball

The Seattle U Women’s Softball team went out to Oklahoma where they were scheduled to play five games, two of these, however, were canceled due to freezing temperatures this week. The doubleheader against Oklahoma State University was rescheduled to Thursday with the hopes that the game would happen before the weather would turn ugly, but with the weather turning earlier than people thought the games were cancelled anyway. The other games went along as scheduled, with the team playing Syracuse University and McNeese State University (MSU).

In the game against Syracuse, the team lost 0-7 with the opponents scoring in the beginning of the first three innings to cement their lead over the Redhawks. During the game relief pitcher, Shianne Smith came in and slowed down the Orange allowing no more runs and only one hit for the rest of the game.

The team went on to play MSU where they redeemed themselves after their loss to Syracuse, beating McNeese 6-1. Sophomore Carley Nance pitched a perfect first inning against the Cowgirls and the team was able to rally and win the game. This was Nances sixth time playing a full game in the season and she was able to get no earned runs off of six hits and three total strikeouts to go with that.

In what ended up being the final game of the weekend was a 5-2 victory over no. 25 nationally ranked, University of Illinois. The Redhawks set a new season seasonhigh record with 15 hits in the game in what was the first time a Seattle U softball team has beaten a nationally ranked opponent.

Nance continued pitching for the full game much like she did against MSU and played in a way that kept the offense alert and guessing during the game. She was able to only allow one run off of five hits while striking out four hitters. Other great plays include a home run by Sophomore Ally Choate, who drilled a ball over the right-field fence, as well as two RBIs in the game.

The final game of the Oklahoma State Invitational against the University of Northern Iowa also ended up being canceled as well because of the inclement weather much like the double-header against Oklahoma State.
