Week in Review Feb. 21 – Feb. 27


At the WAC championships, Feb. 24-26, athletes on Seattle University’s men’s and women’s swimming teams set 40 personal best times. Sophomore Micheal Luna and Junior Michela Day each scored the second-best 1650-meter freestyle times in Seattle U history, with a 15:52 for Luna and a 17:19 for Day. Freshman Sammy Mosier and Junior Will Corona also had notable performances, scoring the second-best times in the 100 fly and 100 back respectively. 

Both teams will be hoping to push their times even lower at the National Invitational Championships March 9. 

Track and Field:

Over the two-day (Feb. 21-22) WAC indoor championships held in Albuquerque, Senior Tricht Jocelyn and Junior Lucas Milne didn’t disappoint. Milne broke his own school record in the heptathlon, while Jocelyn shattered her own times in both the women’s 60 meter and the 200 meter races. Redshirt Sophomore Alex Franklin also showed up big in the desert, finishing fifth in the 800 and winning a second-team All-WAC spot.

Wrapping up the season at the final Seattle Pacific University qualifier Feb. 26, Franklin and Junior Ansel Pendley-Griffin set new personal records in the mile, finishing second and third.


To start off the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic, the Redhawks fell in a pair of Feb. 25 games against the University of California San Diego and California State Northridge. The Redhawks took the lead in game one heading into the sixth inning, until a three-run home-run put the Tritons on top. Game two was marked by strong efforts from Freshman Grace Luderer who struck out nine in 5.2 innings of relief, and Freshman Katie Walling smacked her first career home run. 

Freshman Tai Wilson and Junior Lily Garcia led the Redhawks to a 5-1 win, Feb. 26, against the University of San Diego, with each player recording three hits. Game four was a shutout, with the Redhawks falling 8-0 to Oregon, Game five  Feb. 27 was a Redhawk stomp with Seattle U defeating the University of California Riverside 10-5. Garcia hit a home run and a triple, and four other Redhawks recorded at least two hits. 

March 4 will be an opportunity for Seattle U to stay hot, with a bout against the University of Pennsylvania. 


A Feb. 25 series against the University of Texas San Antonio was important for the Redhawks. Junior Shane Jamison continued his eye-popping start to the season, smacking a two-run double to give the Redhawks some life early in the first game. The second was a pitcher’s duel, with Redhawk Junior left-handed pitcher Peter Chronowski giving up just a single run. Regardless, Seattle U would fall in both games by the scores of 3-7 and 2-3. The games Feb. 26 and 27 went much more poorly. Seattle U failed to score a run in either game, being blanked 0-11 and 0-14. 

The Redhawks will look to get back on track in their next series against Oregon State, which begins March 1.

Men’s Basketball:

Even the efforts of Sophomore star guard Darrion Trammell couldn’t save the Redhawks from defeat against New Mexico State, Feb. 21. Trammell put up 19 points in the first half, more than double the rest of the team combined, but the Aggies still comfortably secured a 68-55 victory. As usual with New Mexico State, the story was Teddy Allen, who put up 19 points and grabbed ten rebounds. 

A Feb. 26 match against Dixie State set Seattle U back on course. Trammell showed up again, with 16 points, seven assists, four steals and four rebounds, leading the team to a 73-65 victory. Junior Emeka Udenyi’s back-to-back scores to open the second half gave the Redhawks a lead that they would never relinquish.

The next game will be senior night for the Redhawks against a stalwart Chicago State squad, Feb. 5.

Women’s Basketball

In a volatile Feb. 24 game against Utah Valley, the Redhawks fell 61-67. Senior Bree Calhoun put up 11 points, six assists and two steals, the last of which raised her career total to over 150. Senior Hailey Vice-Neat also put up five blocks to keep Seattle U in the game, tied for the most in a game by a Redhawk this season.

The Feb. 26 Redhawk senior night matchup against Dixie State was led by Seattle U’s seniors. Graduate student Barbara Rangel, Senior Courtney Murphy and Calhoun played pivotal roles in a 69-61 win. 

The women will travel to play Chicago State Feb. 5.
