As the Washington University baseball team enters the toughest part of its schedule, it continues to fire on all cylinders. The Bears beat Augustana College 4-2 and 6-2 Friday at Kelly Field, making it six straight victories for the team following an 0-2 start to the season.
The No. 5 Washington University women’s basketball team weathered a late rally at Augustana College on Saturday to extend its winning streak to four and move to 6-1 on the season.
The University Athletic Association Player of the Year and Wash. U.’s leading scorer at 16.4 points-per-game, Richter is the unquestioned star of this team. Deadly coming off screens for three-pointers, Richter has turned in his best performances this season in what were arguably the Red and Green’s three biggest wins.
In his four years on the Washington University men’s basketball team, senior guard Dylan Richter has seen plenty of Augustana College. The two rival schools have faced off all four season, with his first two meetings going the Bears’ way.
The Washington University men’s basketball team (2-3) fell to Augustana College and Hanover College in its final two games of a five-game, season-opening road trip. The Bears lost 78-55 to Augustana College in a top-25 matchup on November 22, and fell 56-52 to Hanover College on November 28.
“Divide and conquer” was the strategy for the Washington University track and field team this weekend. While several distance runners competed at the Augustana Meet of Champions, the rest of the team was at the Wheaton College Twilight Meet. The men’s squad’s distance runners chose the Augustana meet to face a more competitive field. The strategy paid off as junior Dave Spandorfer took second in the 10,000 meters in 30:19.
This past weekend, many students heard Augustana play on the Swamp at WUStock and learned from Team 31 that the Cold War Kids and Shwayze will be performing at this spring’s W.I.L.D. But in the midst of these big names was another lesser-known group waiting for their few minutes of fame.
An 8-0 drubbing at the beginning of a tournament might spoil the weekend for many softball teams. But the No. 15 Washington University Bears did not let their Friday loss to No. 8 Augustana College get them down. Wash. U. recorded only one hit and three errors in the defeat, but Saturday was a different story for the Bears, as they toppled Augustana 10-8 in nine innings and thrashed Fontbonne University 14-2 in five innings.
Washington University students may be stuck in the middle of a snowstorm, freezing on their way to and from class, but rest assured, people, because this WUStock announcement should warm some spirits. WUStock, the band behind “Boston” and “Sweet and Low,” is headlining WUStock on April 10.
