Week in Review: May 7- 21


Seattle University women’s rowing finished their 2022 season at the Windermere Cup on Lake Washington, May 7. 

Seattle U’s varsity 8+ finished fourth in the Women’s Erickson Cascade Cup with a time of 7:14.832. The third varsity 8+ boat lost in a head-to-head race against the University of Washington (UW) coming in at a time of 7:33.430. The Redhawks’ varsity 4+ rounded out action, taking third in a four boat field, finishing in 8:17.362.


The Seattle U baseball team competed against UW at Husky Ballpark, May 10, losing the series 1-2. During the third game, seniors Matt Boissoneault and Kyle Sherick hit home runs, managing to bring the Redhawks back from deficits on two different occasions. Unfortunately, both home runs weren’t able to turn the tide for the Redhawks. 

The last game in the series took place May 15 against California Baptist University. Seattle U lost in a one-hit game, 0-13. Seattle U’s lone hit, a ground ball through the infield, came from sophomore Derek Gellos in the bottom of the seventh inning. 

The Redhawks finished their regular season May 19-21 in a series against Grand Canyon University May 19-21 in Phoenix, AZ. Although Seattle U lost all three games in the series, they were the first on the board in the first two games with RBIs from Gellos and fifth-year Connor O’Brien in the first game and a two-run hit from O’Brien the second game. 

Seattle U Baseball completed their 2022 regular season with a 16-32 overall record. They were 11-19 in conference play which earned them the three seed for the west division in the Western Athletic Conference (WAC). They kicked off WAC tournament games May 25 with a match against Lamar University. 


The Redhawks finished their 2022 season in the WAC semi-finals with a 1-0 loss to Stephen F. Austin, May 13. Coming off a thrilling 5-3 win over New Mexico State in eight innings earlier in the day, they were unable to keep their streak going and failed to reach the WAC final. Seattle U softball finished their season at 32-24, an impressive finish considering the injuries they had to fight through.  

On top of this being the third-year in a row that Seattle U has won at least three games in the WAC Tournament, the Redhawks also earned seven honors from the WAC’s 2022 end-of-the-year awards. Graduate student Carley Nance received Player of the Year and Grace Luderer received Freshman of the Year. Nance also earned All-WAC First Team, Junior Stefanie Madrigal was named to the All-WAC Second Team, and Juniors Lily Garcia and Madison Kahwaty along with Senior Olivia Viggiano earned WAC All-Defensive.

Four Redhawks—Junior Marie-Therese Chahrouri, First-year Lilianne Hargreaves, Second-year Grace Much and Postma—qualified for the 1500m finals on Saturday with all of them setting new PRs during the event.
