It was a bittersweet end to the season for the Loggers, who took a tough loss on senior day. Despite tying the game against George Fox early in the second half, the Loggers were unable to respond to George Fox’s 14 unanswered points, and lost the game 21-7.
Despite an underwhelming season, six Loggers were awarded NWC honors. Senior Dustin Harrison (Orange, CA), Junior Zach Losack (Oceanside, CA) and sophomores Zackary Teats (Reno, NV) and Jason Clayton (Brea, CA) were chosen for the All-NWC Second team, while Senior Tanner Diebold (La Verne, CA) and Junior Todd Blakely (Oakland, CA) were honorable mentions.
Both the men’s and women’s swim teams had dominant wins over Willamette this past weekend. The Logger women won 153-52, while the men won 121-82. Sophomore Kelli Callahan (Aspen, CO) won all three events she raced in, including the 400 team medley. Sophomore Dylan Reimers (Rocklin, CA) also won the three races he was in, including the 500-meter freestyle. The teams are off until the Logger Invitational in early December.
Women’s cross-country had a solid showing this past weekend at regionals, finishing eighth out 20 teams. First-year student Samantha Schaffer (Greenwood Village, CO), the NWC Freshman of the Year, set the pace for the team, finishing 14th out of 138 runners with a time of 22:29.69.
Both the Postmen and Clearcut had successful tournaments over the previous weeks. The Postmen managed wins against Seattle University, Gonzaga University and University of Washington at the Sundodger tournament in Burlington. Clearcut had a successful OFUDG tournament down in Eugene, Oregon. The women defeated Portland State, Oregon State and the University of Portland, showcasing their national-level talent.
