There’s a few WSU links to talk about


As another workweek starts off with a near-perfect day, we have a couple of links for you. They run the gamut of sports, though we’re focusing on the state of Oregon for some reason. Read on.


• The Washington State track and field and the baseball teams were in the state south of here yesterday, one competing in the Pac-10 championships (which is different than competing for a Pac-10 championship, a goal made impossible after Saturday, though the men did finish fourth), the other competing for the postseason.

A few individuals turned on the jets and earned Pac-10 track titles (third item), including football player Jeshua Anderson. The Oregonian’s Ken Goe has this story about Anderson’s day, made all the more impressive by a somewhat balky hamstring. … The baseball team took another giant step toward an NCAA Regional berth, rallying from four runs down to win another Pac-10 series, this one at Oregon State, 7-6. Here’s the Gazette-Times story and a piece in the Statesman-Journal. The Cougars, all alone in second, were eliminated from the championship race, however, when Arizona State swept Oregon, clinching another conference title. … Finally, football coach Paul Wulff played some golf in the Tri-Cities last week and talked about his team beforehand.


• That’s it for this morning. Enjoy the great weather. We’ll be back if news warrants. Until then …
