Gonzaga University pitcher Darin Blood was named the Pac-10 North's player of the year on Wednesday. But as he sat in his parents' home in Post Falls, one of his first thoughts was: "Man, I'd trade this award for the Pac-10 North Conference Championship." But Washington State coach Steve Farrington, whose Cougars won the division this year, certainly wouldn't accommodate Blood if he made such a request to the first-year coach. Farrington doesn't need another award - he was named the Pac-10 coach of the year.
Gonzaga University will end its 14-year baseball association with the Pacific-10 Conference at the end of the current season, according to Bulldogs athletic director Dan Fitzgerald.

The two schools are already members of the WCC in men's and women's basketball, soccer, golf, tennis and cross country and women's volleyball.
