WSU Men's Club Soccer v. Spokane Spiders

The Men's Club Soccer Team competed for regional dominance last weekend as they hosted the Whitman Men's Soccer Team and the Spokane Spiders, a semi-pro team. Although the Cougs lost to Whitman, their performance against the spiders was nothing short of fantastic. Check out the slide-show below to see some of the action through the camera lens.

Special thanks to Austin Shelton for letting me use his camera.

Baseball lose series with No. 2 Arizona State

Hey Cougar fans.

Mom's weekend was great....the fasion show, spring time weather, football scrimmage, and of course Sir Elton John. However, things were not so absolutely great for the WSU Cougar baseball team.

After taking a drubbing on Friday evening behind a 9-run 4th inning. The cougars lost the opener 15-3 to the Sun Devils. The team also had four errors leading to a total of 10 unearned runs. Josh Satow (4-1) went six innings for the win.

However, the cougars went on behind strong hitting and strong crowd to thump the Sun Devils 10-4. Jason Miller pitched seven strong innings as he increased his record to five and one. Paul Gran (pictured) also kept swinging his hot bat as he had three hits, including a home run. He also scored three runs and drove in two RBI's. The win came in front of 3,313 people, the largest crowd at Baily-Brayton Field since 1999. It was also the third largest crowd since 1987.

In the rubber match on Sunday, the Cougars rallied back to hold a 13-8 lead going into the ninth. The ball was in the hands of Junior closer Ross Humes. The game is set to be shut down and the cougars win a major series. Apparently someone did not tell that to the Sun Devils. As they rallied from being down 5 runs to win 16-13. The rally was lead with three homeruns off of Humes (2-3). Ike Davis (4-0) got the win and helped his own cause with a pair of hits in the 9th. Paul Gran helped give the cougars the lead with another homerun, his seventh of the season.

Attendance was great for the series with not only the massive crowd on Saturday but the weekend series had a total of 5,313 people attend. This was the most for a series since 1990.
