Weekend Wrap

Today brought the end to an exciting and event filled week for GU athletics. TKR had some technical issues yesterday, so we will be doing a wrap-up to the sporting events from the weekend.

- The volleyball team finished off the Montana Invitational with a 1-3 record, as they lost both matches on Saturday. In the first match against North Dakota State, the Zags began with a spectacular first two sets, winning 25-22 and 25-13. However, the Zags could not keep up the performance and dropped the last three sets. The 3-2 loss was certainly disappointing for the Zags, as they had played so well early on in the match. In the final game of the tournament, the Zags were swept by UC Riverside. The Highlanders won with scores of 25-17, 25-20, 25-22. This was a difficult conclusion to the tournament for the Lady Zags, as they played well at times, but erratic throughout most of the tournament. Hopefully the Lady Zags can recover, as they will be traveling to Seattle for a tournament hosted by the University of Washington next week.

- The women's soccer team returned home today to host the University of Washington. The Lady Zags had won two straight matches, but today they could not overcome an 80th minute goal by the Huskies, as they fell 2-1. The Zags jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the 39th minute, when Katie Spangenberg was able to score off a corner kick for her 1st goal in a Gonzaga uniform. However, two-second half goals from the Huskies sent the Zags to a tough 2-1 loss. The Lady Zags will be off until next Sunday, when they will host Cal State University Bakersfield.
