NWAC East Update 11.21.19: Highline, Peninsula Claim Titles in Dramatic Fashion

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.

Kicking off an hour earlier, the Yaks put pressure on early with a two-goal lead early in their contest as Spokane and NIC prepared to square off. The Cardinals scored first in the battle of the rivals to make a three-way tie possible, but Spokane pulled even for their needed point and eventually snagged the win and berth.
