In their final non-conference game of the season, the Seattle University baseball team stayed local, playing cross-town rival University of Washington at the Husky Ballpark.

The game remained scoreless until the third when the Huskies hit a grand slam. They were able to add two more runs after, but the Redhawks succeeded in holding the Huskies scoreless for the remainder of the night.

Standout defense and a lone run by Senior Utility Player Michael Ciancio in the fifth inning helped the Redhawks, but no other significant plays were made. At the end of the night, the final score was 6-1 favoring the Huskies.

The Redhawks returned to Western Athletic Conference (WAC) play just three days later, facing Chicago State University (CSU) in a three-game series.

In the first of three meetings, the Redhawks dominated from the start. Senior Infielder Jake Taylor went 3-for-5 with four RBI and two runs scored. In total, Seattle U put up 15 hits and runs on the board in five different frames, winning 12-3.

The Redhawks met CSU two more times, winning both respective matches 5-4 and 13-9 and earning their first series sweep of the season.

Standout plays by Junior Utility Player Chase Wells, who went 3-for-5 with an RBI and scored two runs, was one of many notable performances. Eight different Redhawks collected at least one hit, while eight players drove in at least one run.

The strong offense put up by the Redhawks in the second and third matches was too much for the Cougars, who could not come back to secure any wins.

The regular season continues with the Redhawks hosting New Mexico State University—who are currently tied for the best record in the WAC—in a three-game series from May 10-12.

Track and Field

The Seattle U Track and Field Team stayed local this weekend, competing at the University of Washington in the Ken Shannon Invitational. With conditions right, notable performances took place across the board.

In the Men’s 400-meter hurdles, First-year Lucas Milne took third place overall with a time of 58.03. In the open 400-meter dash, Juniors Kailan Claiborne and Steve Brown took second and third with respective times of 52.44 and 52.76.
