Swim teams look impressive at Northwest Invitational

The University of Puget Sound’s swimming teams have looked unbeatable in the early stages of the season. Most recently, both men’s and women’s teams took titles at the Northwest Invitational on Nov. 20 and 21 at Parkland. The women Loggers crushed the competition with a total of 528 points, finishing well ahead of Whitman University, who came in a distant second with 405 points. The men faced a more challenging field; they narrowly held off Whitman 472-463 for the team title. The men’s team took an early lead thanks in...

Rugby club finding success, making a name for itself across campus

Are you aware that the University of Puget Sound has a good old fashioned club rugby team? I wasn’t either, until I passed Todd Field a couple weekends ago to see just over 20 Logger men in the pouring rain, yelling, kicking and screaming during a game. Battered, bloodied and tired, the Puget Sound club team, filled mostly with “retired” soccer and football players, won in the closing on a try. Now you might ask what a try is?

The Logger swim teams cleaned house this weekend against the Willamette Bearcats on Friday and the Linfield Wildcats on Saturday. On Friday, final team...

Pacquiao vs. Margarito: The PacMan takes the title in a David-and-Goliath-esque showdown

It was a classic battle of David versus Goliath. On Nov. 13, 2010, Manny “The PacMan” Pacquiao faced Antonio Margarito in the Cowboys Stadium for the WBC super welterweight belt. Margarito’s physical advantage was apparent as the boxers posed for the traditional pre-fight stare-down. Towering an extra 5 inches over Pacquiao and weighing in at 150 lbs, almost 6 lbs more than the PacMan, Margarito was characteristically cocky. The PacMan looked calm and collected despite his apparent physical disadvantages. He had confidence in his speed, ambidexterity and stamina. In a pre-fight...

Logger athletes and athletic training staff share mutual appreciation

The Puget Sound training staff has the amazing task of taking care of every single varsity student athlete that walks into their respective field, course, track, or court. These amazing individuals are instrumental in preparing our athletes before the game and for taking care of them when something goes wrong. Head trainer Craig Bennett has been here since 2005 and he has already made a huge impact on the athletic community. He makes it a point to learn not just the names of the athletes who frequent the training room,...
