Cougs rally to beat Seattle

Tue., April 24, 2012

Adam Nelubowich hit a go-ahead, two-run home run in the seventh inning as Washington State rallied for an 8-6 victory over Seattle University on Monday night in Everett.

Nelubowich also had an RBI-single in the fifth as WSU (21-16) opened a 3-1 lead, only to see the Redhawks (19-17) ease ahead 4-3 with a three-run fifth off Cougars starter Kyle Swannack.

Kellen Camus (1-1) pitched 2 2/3 innings to earn the win and Spencer Jackson retired the three batters he faced to earn his first collegiate save.


The Spokane Shock made several moves Monday, activating three players from injured reserve and signing 6-foot-1, 315-pound offensive lineman Andrew Roxas, a former Washington State Cougar.

The team activated defensive lineman Brandon Sharpe, offensive lineman Cory Brandon and linebacker Freddie Harris from injured reserve.

Spokane (2-3) visits Jacksonville (2-3) on Saturday. The game will be televised on SWX at 4 p.m.


Dominik Uher, who led the Spokane Chiefs with 33 goals in 63 games, will join the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins for the American Hockey League playoffs.

Uher brings to five the number of former Chiefs in the AHL playoffs, joining Tyler Johnson and Dustin Tokarski in Norfolk, Ondrej Roman (San Antonio) and Sean Zimmerman (St. John’s).


Alyssa Wold, a 5-foot-10 setter from West Valley, who is transferring from Lewis-Clark State, is one of three players Washington State has signed to letters of intent, Cougars coach Jen Greeny announced.

Also slated to join the Cougars in the fall are Aurora Vasquez, a 5-11 outside hitter from Spanaway, Wash., and Highline Community College, where she was the NWAACC Player of the Year as a sophomore, and Anna Stecowska, a 6-foot opposite hitter from Athens, Greece, who is transferring from Eastern Arizona College, where she was first-team all-region.


Sophomore Dylan Maine (Freeman) won a sudden-death playoff with a birdie on the first extra hole to claim medalist honors and lead the Community Colleges of Spokane men to a 13-shot victory in an NWAACC tournament in Yakima.

Maine shot 3-under 141 and teammate Andrew Roller (Coeur d’Alene) shot 1-over 143 to lead CCS to a 582 team score.
