The Huskies staying home for the NCAA Tournament causing some March Sadness in your life? In between filling out brackets, take a look at this roundup of news and notes on your Husky spring sports. Below, I cover Baseball, Tennis, Golf, Crew, and Softball.

Baseball

  • The baseball season is just getting underway, and we’ve already had a Pac-12 player of the week. Freshman pitcher Noah Bremer was honored on March 2nd
  • Bremer’s performance against UCLA on March 13th was strong as well. Even though the Huskies lost, the talented righty gave up only 1 run, his first in 18 innings.
  • The Huskies bounced back with an 8-1 win over the Bruins only to lose the final game in the series, 5-4.
  • The Husky pitching rotation appears to be strong this year as their only preseason All American is right handed senior, Tyler Davis.  Paired with the Freshman Bremer, they form a solid core for the pitching rotation.
  • In conference play, the Huskies currently sit in 9th with a 1-2-0 record. The Huskies have a chance to even their record against the Cal Bears this Saturday in Seattle.
Softball

  • It took 13 innings, but the Husky Softball team beat Arizona State to open Pac-12 play with a W. They split the series, however, losing the next day, 9-7.

Men's Golf

  • Senior Cheng-Tsung Pan was one of 24 players named to the 2015 Ben Hogan Award Watch List. He is a 3 time semifinalist and might make it 4 when the listed in pared in April. He’s also the #5 ranked amateur golfer in the world.
