Happy Monday Dawg fans, and welcome to today’s Dots.
- Softball’s season came to an end yesterday, as UW forced a tie-beaker game with Texas but lost 3-2 after a 7th inning rally fell short. On her last day in purple, Gabbie Plain went all 7 innings in the first game for a 2-1 win, and 6 2⁄3 in the second match, giving up just 4 runs over the two contests. The second game was not without controversy, however.
- Larry Stone and Scott Hanson (Seattle Times) each have their thoughts on the weekend and the end of the season.
Grateful, but so sad to end our season tonight. I love this team so much. Thank you Husky Nation and to the University of Washington for making this the most amazing place for us to play. Wishing our seniors the best as they leave our nest and fly into the next stage of life— Heather Tarr (@CoachTarr) May 23, 2022
- Husky baseball swept Northern Colorado in 4 games to end the regular season on a 12 game win streak. The seventh-seeded Diamond Dawgs will face #2-in-the-nation Oregon State (who is seeded second) at 4:45pm this Wednesday. #4 Stanford edged Oregon State by one game to claim their first Pac-12 title and grab the #1 seed in the tournament.

- The Athletic continues with their re-rankings of past recruiting classes, with a look back at 2018. Washington was 3rd in the Pac-12 that year in recruiting, and 16th nationally. This re-do has UW at 32nd nationally, for the class that I will always remember for the three lauded 4-star WRs (and two QBs) who never contributed to the Husky offense.
- UW men’s tennis player Clement Chidekh will appear in the singles bracket today at 5:30pm at the NCAA championships, which begin today and run all week. He’ll be joined by retiring UW men’s tennis coach Matt Anger.
