Fall sports start this Friday, with 10 Bear sports events through Labor Day. Here’s what fans of the Red and Green can look forward to as the autumn season commences.
The Bears are back to school, some bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, some for the final marathon, but all in pursuit of No. 23 to add to the Red and Green trophy cabinet. Optimism sweeps summer into autumn, but there’s also a bit of annoyance in the air—and it’s not just the construction. Let’s take a look at what the Wash. U. sports teams have to feel good about and where they may want to study up before the homework piles up.
The Washington University softball team bounced back from last weekend’s four-game sweep at the hands of Emory University, completing a sweep of its own at Greenville University Thursday in Greenville, Ill.
They are the Wash. U. figure skating team, one of the University’s 40 sport clubs. And the next time they lace up, it won’t be from the usual 3:50 to 4:50 p.m. at Creve Coeur Ice Arena. No, this time, they’ll spend the weekend at the University of Denver competing in the United States Figure Skating Association Intercollegiate Championships in Colorado.
Ogunbowale’s Notre Dame University and the University of Connecticut share one of basketball’s elite rivalries, but the Fighting Irish entered the semifinal matchup on a seven-game losing streak against the Huskies.
Yes, April is here, snow, thunderstorms and all. And that means just one month remains in this year of Bear sports. Welcome to the final edition of Red and Green, where we digest and regurgitate the best and worst that represent Wash. U. athletics.
The St. Louis spring weather dictated a Saturday of inaction at the Washington University softball field, but the softball team was able to complete two games with the University of Chicago Friday.
The Washington University baseball team split a doubleheader with Illinois Wesleyan University Sunday at Kelly Field, dropping the first game, 6-1, before winning the second, 8-1.
Three top-seven teams ousted in the first round, three unranked teams in the final four and, Nebraska Wesleyan University, a team that hadn’t lost fewer than eight games since the 1990s winning it all.
The Washington University men’s track and field team clinched its 16th UAA title at the conference indoor championships this weekend at Case Western Reserve University. The women, meanwhile, finished second to the University of Chicago.
