Then the Dawgs beat Seattle U. 8-0 in six innings. Kaitlin Ingelsby pitched a 1-hitter, with 10 strikeouts, and improved her record to 11-0 on the year.
The Dawgs went on to beat North Dakota 4-0, in a game that had a ton of rain. Briana Walker pitched a gem, allowing only three hits, and improving her record to 5-1 on the year. She struck out 11 batters.
The next day, the softball team won its next 2 games, improving its record to 23-1 on the season. Shawna Wright hit her first career grand slam against North Dakota. The Dawgs won 12-4 in five innings. Kasey Stanchek improved to 6-0 on the season.

UW v. Oregon: The 8th ranked Dawgs opened up the tourney with a strong win over a less than impressive, 9th ranked, Oregon team, winning 72-56. Freshman Jazmine Davis tied a UW record by hitting 7 treys, and scored a game-high 23 points. At the half, UW went into the locker room up 41-22. Regina Rogers had 21 points and 7 rebounds; Amineh Williams had 6 points and 16 rebounds; and Mackenzie Argens had 6 points and 10 rebounds.
U-W v. Stanford: Top ranked Stanford beat the Dawgs 76-51, holding Jazmine Davis to 8 points on 2 for 18 shooting. This game just shows how good Stanford is. The Cardinal improved to 29-1.

UW got an invite to the WNIT, and will host the Cal Poly tomorrow night at 7 pm. Cal Poly is 17-14 on the year, and just finished off winning the Big West Conference tournament.
This was back on March 3rd, but the UW Rugby played the Seattle Quake Rugby Football Club, and clobbered them 44-0. The exhibition match was scheduled because there was a bye, and it was played at Magnusson Park. Here's a link to some pictures from the match.
The Mens tennis team extended its winning streak to 7 matches, soundly beating in-state rival Eastern Washington, 7-0. I actually don't know enough about the tennis program to say "authoritatively" that the two teams are in fact rivals, but hey, it's Eastern. The Dawgs swept the mighty eagles, winning all three doubles matches and all six singles matches. None of the matches went into a third set, and the Huskies improved their record to 11-2 on the season.
The 13th ranked golf team finished 4th place at the Juli Inkster Spartan Invite. Kim SooBin finished the invite in 6th place, and in the top 10 for the 4 time this season. The Dawgs finished between Cal, Oregon and UC Davis.
