Washington University’s women’s basketball clinched the NCAA Division III national title with a 65-59 win over Hope College in Bloomington, Ill. Players and fans alike shared their feelings and favorite moments with Student Life.
For seniors Tim Machan, a defensive back, and Jared Daiber, an offensive lineman, the football season is far from over. Despite a 28-8 loss in the last game of Washington University’s 2009 season, the two will be playing one more game.
Ahead 13-0 late in the third quarter, Washington University’s special teams unit fumbled twice, allowing Carnegie Mellon University to score 14 points and take the lead in less than three minutes and sending the Bears to a 21-13 loss on Saturday.
In a must-win game against Rhodes College Saturday, Oct. 4th, senior defensive back Tim Machan perhaps made the biggest play of the day only seven minutes into the game. With the Lynx driving into the red zone, Machan intercepted a pass into the end zone, returning it 33 yards. The Lynx would be shutdown for the rest of the game. Machan’s interception and team-leading eight tackles earned him Student Life’s Male Athlete of the Week.
After Sept. 19’s crushing 46-0 home defeat to Wittenberg University, Washington University was left with multiple questions.
Junior runningback Jim O’Brien answered those questions on Saturday, earning a career-high 146 rushing yards in the team’s 23-0 win over Rhodes College (2-3).
