Kayakers were ill prepared

A kayaking group apparently was ill prepared for the lethal combination of near-freezing temperatures, cold water and high winds that took the life of a Gonzaga University honors student April 1 at Rock Lake, according to a report released Tuesday by the Whitman County Sheriff’s Office. Chris Gormley, a GU freshman, died after capsizing in high winds and being immersed in the deep 7-mile-long lake for about an hour.

Shawn Vestal: Tutu offers chance to challenge our beliefs

The madness that afflicts Gonzaga usually ends in March. But this year there’s been a prominent case of April Madness – an effort to undo the “travesty” of having Archbishop Desmond Tutu speak at graduation and receive an honorary degree.

College kids go WILD on spring break

While some students head to party destinations for spring break, the outdoors crowd is more likely to release the pressure of mid-terms by scaling mountains, running rivers, biking trails, muscle-powering into snowy retreats and other mind and body-building pursuits. This gallery features photos from four different Gonzaga University student groups who launched week-long budget adventures to Canyonlands National Park in Utah, the Powder Highway ski areas in British Columbia, Mount Assiniboine Provincial Park in Alberta and Yosemite National Park in California.

Gonzaga men can’t buck Ohio State

Gonzaga clawed back from a 10-point deficit to forge a tie and somehow had a Consol Energy Center crowd roaring despite a preponderance of Ohio State scarlet in the stands. Robert Sacre waved his arms in the middle of the Bulldogs’ zone defense, asking for more noise. The game was there for the taking, and momentum seemed to be on Gonzaga’s side.

Zags, Knights hope for future journey

As if her resume isn’t already impressive enough, C. Vivian Stringer can probably etch psychic onto the list. Like all other at-large hopefuls, the Hall of Fame coach and her Rutgers basketball team gathered last Monday to watch the NCAA women’s selection show.

Gonzaga adding building for parking, retail

Gonzaga University will break ground this spring on a $14 million, four-level building that will add about 650 parking spaces and ground-level dining options for students and area residents. The new building, which will replace a surface parking lot, will be bordered by Hamilton and Cincinnati streets and DeSmet and Boone avenues. When finished in January, the 250,000-square-foot Gonzaga Retail and Parking Center will be the new home for GU’s campus bookstore and eventually several retail businesses.

Blanchette: GU women develop new identity with similar results

Steal, pass, layup. It can still be that elementary. In the deciding moments of Gonzaga’s 69-58 women’s basketball victory over San Diego on Saturday, it happened twice in the space of maybe 30 seconds – guard Taelor Karr picking the pocket of the Toreros’ Amy Kame, and then locating a teammate flashing down court. Not unlike a ratty security blanket fetched from a closet shelf, because of these easy points the Zags would be less vulnerable at the finish to whatever long 3s USD might wing in late, or even their own frailties.

Katelan Redmon, Gonzaga women top Toreros

Head coach Kelly Graves’ unhurried tempo and ease in tone was contrary to his team’s delivery of an adrenaline rush to the fifth-largest Gonzaga women’s basketball crowd in McCarthey Athletic Center history.

Gonzaga women power past San Francisco

It was a night of individual firsts for the Gonzaga University women’s basketball team. Winning was not one of them, as those come quite often for the 23rd-ranked Bulldogs.

Zags’ freshmen guards play with veteran savvy

Kevin Pangos and Gary Bell Jr. apparently didn’t get the memo that true freshmen guards tend to struggle at times against quality collegiate competition, especially on the road in packed arenas. They’ve gone against experienced Pac-12 guards and two of the better backcourts in the Big Ten Conference. They’ve tangled with Notre Dame’s dandy starting guards. They encountered perhaps their biggest challenge to date Saturday against Xavier’s Tu Holloway and Mark Lyons. Holloway was an All-American last season and one writer’s preseason pick as national player of the year. Lyons, who earned All-Atlantic 10 honors last season, is averaging 17.2 points per game.
