Happy Monday Husky fans!

Spring Quarter classes are starting up, the cherry blossoms are out in the Quad, and Spring football practices are just over a week away. It’s a great time of the year to be a Dawg, and just in time to welcome the newest members of the Husky family.

Football Dots:

  • As mentioned above, it was move-in weekend for the newest members of the football team ahead of Spring Practice, but not before a couple put their final touches on record-setting HS careers on Friday.
  • All of the UW & local beat writers had something to say about Huard’s tremendous game to cap off his storied career and his plans to start classes at UW today.
  • Huard isn’t the only Dawg to start his UW career this week, with Kennedy Catholic teammate WR Jabez Tinae, DL Voi Tunuufi, RB Caleb Berry, and OT Robert Wyrsch also arriving for Spring Quarter.
  • In other local football news, some leagues are wrapping up, or have completed, their spring football schedules. Perfect timing to give us more highlights of UW recruits to watch for the rest of spring.

Basketball Dots:

  • After a tumultuous week for the Men’s Basketball Team, this weekend saw things settle down a little. Taking stock of all the personnel changes, it seems as though we are now out 5 players (Stevenson, Tsohonis, Pryon, Battle, and Brooks) with 3 incoming (C Jackson Grant, SF Samuel Ariyibi & G Terrell Brown)
  • Outside of news from Hec Ed, the Pac-12 continues it’s conference-wide Cinderella run through the NCAA Tourney with Oregon St., UCLA, and USC advancing to the Elite 8 over the weekend.

*I suppose if I had to cheer for an outcome of this game, this is the one I’d prefer?

  • To put some context to the Pac-12’s improbable run, UCLA & OSU have made some history this week.

Elsewhere Around the Athletic Dept:

  • Looks like a Horizon Airlines employee/Dawg fan got a sweet honor this past weekend
