College Notebook 11.21.19: Cougars and Huskies Advance in NCAA Tourney

It was a good opening round for the two Apple Cup foes as both Washington State and Washington advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament last week, though they were in close contests.

A handful of players from the area are also still in the postseason mix at Santa Clara and Western Washington, which begins play in the NCAA DII tournament this week after a dramatic finish to the GNAC championship.

In the NAIA, the national tournament kicks off this week after some exciting conference tournament action last week in the Cascade Collegiate Conference, which saw four women's teams advance (two at-large) in addition to the two automatic berths on the men's side. Corban defended its regular season men's title with a narrow win over sixth place season finisher Eastern Oregon, which earned the second berth thanks to a pair of dramatic shootout wins in the previous rounds. The EOU women, second on the season, won the league championship to join regular season champ Oregon Tech in the national tourney. Rocky Mountain, and Southern Oregon were added on as at-large. A few area players also got a reprieve as an at-large as Embry-Riddle (Arizona) included in the field despite slipping in the semifinals after winning their regular season league championship.

College Notebook 11.12.19: Boise State Finally Wins Mountain West Tourney

It has been a big week of celebration around the region as teams played in conference tournaments, claimed league championships and earned national tournament berths.

Boise State finally completed the elusive feat of capturing the Mountain West tournament championship by getting the better of their nemesis San Diego State to raise the trophy for the first time. Meanwhile, Seattle also celebrated the WAC championship and another NCAA tournament appearance.

Washington prevailed in the Apple Cup Series meeting against Washington State, but both heard their names called during the selection show and will host in the First Round, the Huskies hosting neighboring Seattle in what should be a packed house. Players from the region also advanced to the DI NCAA tournament with Santa Clara, Utah and Northern Colorado, which claimed the Big Sky championship against Eastern Washington after the pair knocked out the top two seeds in the semifinals.

Elsewhere, Pacific Lutheran finished off the Northwest Conference (DIII) race for the men's title, making it a sweep for men and women in the league. Also sweeping was Western Washington in the DII Great Northwest Athletic Conference.

INWsn College Best XI - Week 10 & 11: Two for One Edition of Weekly Honors

Busy times with high school and college action locally delayed Week 10's list... so you get twice as many honors this week - and it is exceptionally exciting given some of the performances.

Kelsey Turnbow (Spokane, WA) guided Santa Clara to a thrilling comeback result in a pair of wins for the Week 10 INWsn Player of the Week nod and Morgan Weaver lit things up in Week 11 for Washington State, overshadowing a nice performance from Western Washington's Darby Doyle (Spokane, WA) that would have earned the nod most other weeks.

On the men's side Whitman made a huge stride in the race for the Northwest Conference title, handing Pacific Lutheran its first loss, 2-0, of the season in the first part of the tough two-game trip to the west side that also included a win at Puget Sound as well. Goalkeeper Owen Davis-Bower earned the shutouts in both games for the Week 10 INWsn Player of the Week selection. In Week 11 it was also a two-man choice just as it was for the ladies, both of them on the same side, however. Jake Levine took the nod for the honor over teammate Skyler Munroe as the striker played a key role in both games for Northwest Nazarene as the Nighthawks earned their first two wins of the GNAC campaign.

This week there was an abundance at the position, which was led by Claire Howard, who is dominating the Big Sky at the moment for Montana.

The Sasquatch loss allowed Columbia Basin to step to the top of the table with their pair of victories, which also enabled them to secure a playoff spot. The Warriors, meanwhile, used their road trip to finally get going in the win column with a sweep of Blue Mountain and Treasure Valley.

On the women's side Yakima Valley's two matches made a huge impact on the race for the three playoff berths as their draw against North Idaho cost both sides, who were trailing Spokane, which avenged an earlier season loss to the Yaks with a 1-0 win in Yakima Saturday to further increase their lead. The results also enabled unbeaten Walla Walla to officially lock up a postseason berth.

NWAC East Update 10.14.19: The Walla Walla Conundrum Continues

Aside from Friday's two contests, goals were a hard thing to come by in a tight set of matches for the men this week as two went scoreless and another two were 1-0 affairs. At the end of the day Spokane was still unbeaten and Walla Walla - somehow - still winless.

On the women's side a tough week for Yakima Valley allowed Columbia Basin to move into second and Spokane third in what is turning into an exciting race for second in the NWAC East as unbeaten Walla Walla holds a five-point lead despite dropping their first points of the season to the Yaks on Wednesday. Climbing into that race was North Idaho with a pair of wins as the foursome sit within a four point span of one another.

College Notebook 10.10.19: Eastern Washington Soars Past Idaho

Opening league play, the Gonzaga women smacked visiting San Diego 6-0 with the duo of India Jencks and Samantha Heilman lighting it up and MSU Billings earned a narrow 1-0 win at Northwest Nazarene on the opening day of GNAC men's play only to finish with a split on the weekend.

Washington State ran into the buzz saw that is second ranked Stanford, suffering a 5-0 loss. The Cougars, however, rebounded quickly with a 1-0 overtime win over #20 California on the weekend.

NWAC East Update 10.07.19: Walla Walla Women Blank Columbia Basin, Remain Unbeaten

Spokane gave Walla Walla a bit of a scare on Wednesday, but the Warriors took a 3-2 decision at home and then made a statement in the final game of the first half of the season, blanking Columbia Basin in convincing fashion Saturday.

On the men's side Spokane closed out the first half of the season unbeaten and a point ahead of CBC courtesy of a scoreless draw Wednesday at Walla Walla and a 2-0 win at rival North Idaho Saturday. In a shocker, a loss for Walla Walla Saturday combined with Blue Mountain taking the battle of the winless sides versus Treasure Valley allowed the Timberwolves to leap past the still winless (0-2-4) Warriors in the table.

College Notebook 10.03.19: Yellowjacket Women Stun Concordia to Open GNAC

The MSU Billings women, last place finishers in the GNAC a year ago, got off to a great start with a sweep of Western Oregon and defending champion Concordia. In the Big Sky there's a bit of new hope in the new season, perhaps, as Idaho State showed a bit of fighting spirit. Though they are 0-1-1 after the first week, it was not for trying as they took Portland State to overtime and led twice in a draw against Sacramento State.

On the men's side of things, the powers of the east met the powers of the west in the Northwest Conference. It was Pacific Lutheran that laid the best hand out on the table with a huge win at Whitworth and another good result at Whitman whilst the 10th ranked Loggers fell in both games.

HS UPDATE - Wildcats Upset University to Make 3A Race Interesting

Wednesday's set of fixtures featured a pair of contests with postseason implications and chief among the results was Mt Spokane earning the first victory for the 3A contingent against their 4A peers.

The Wildcats got a goal in each half and the team's stalwart defense took care of the rest with the shutout, putting a major dent in University's playoff chase. After eight games the Wildcats sit with the best defensive mark in the league with just five goals allowed. They are now tied with North Central with both facing 4A opponents again Friday as the Wildcats host second place Ferris and NC on the road against a Titans squad facing a must-win scenario to finish in the top four.

The other big contest featured Gonzaga Prep seeking to improve their position in the chase for the playoffs, but Ferris blocked the Bullpups' efforts to remain two points back of Central Valley, hoping for a miracle slip-up by the Bears.

The real bad news is that Wednesday's results created a very real scenario in which four teams could finish tied on 16 points Friday if Prep defeats Mead in a battle of two sides without a non-shootout win against 4A opponents and both University and Lewis & Clark - which survived a scare against Shadle - both win against their 3A opponents. All three teams are at home.
