The softball continued bouncing in the Bears’ favor this weekend as the Washington University softball team tallied its 20th victory for the fourth consecutive season.
The Bears took on Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri, Saturday in Ernie Banks fashion, suiting up for a twin bill.
On a weekend where warmth was the norm, a chilling sense of frustration gripped the WU dugout by Sunday evening, as the ball club struggled against regional opponents Simpson College and Illinois Wesleyan.
Saturday began with a rousing 10-1 victory over the Simpson College Storm.
The Washington University women’s basketball team played the typical home Friday/Sunday schedule last weekend, facing off against both Brandeis University and New York University.
The games were so different in style, however, that one might not even believe it was the same sport being played.
Welcome back Washington University Bears.
The women’s team returns to WU for a lengthy homestand after a trying road trip. Four states, two weekends, two time-zones, and four opponents later, the Bears returned victorious.
Four games in hostile environments produced a 4-0 record, and victories by no fewer than fourteen points in any game.
It seems unfair to ever say anything bad about the forerunner in Washington University’s athletic program, the women’s basketball team.
But the team did have one of the poorest seasons in recent memory in 2001-2002, gathering a 25-1 record, a record that is eclipsed by the previous few seasons, which spanned an 81 game win streak.
Another exciting season of intramural flag football will wrap up in the coming weekends.
At registration time all the leagues, fraternity point, women’s, undergrad A, undergrad B, and co-ed, were swamped with entries for teams.
The Undergrad B League was forced to make room for 15 teams, all vying for precious field time.

A: We have practice sessions three times per day but it is flexible.
Women’s soccer has a new superstar, but she doesn’t pass, kick, and shoot anymore. She roams the sidelines, fostering soccer bliss and dreams of an NCAA birth. This new superstar is first year head coach Wendy Dillinger, a soccer guru with a proven track record and spectacular resume to boot.
