Puget Sound's last weekend

The Loggers (5-5, 2-2 NWC) traveled to Pacific for a series last weekend. Due to rain, only three of the four scheduled games were completed. Puget Sound went 2-1 in those three games, including a 5-2 win in nine innings. Jessica Gott hit a three-run home run in the ninth inning of that game. Kaitlyn Webster also hit a home run in the series.

Student-Athlete of the Week

Jessica Gott earned the NWC Player of the Week for her play last weekend. She hit .583 in the three games, including a three-run home run in extra innings which proved the difference in the first game of the series. Jaci Young was named the Northwest Conference Pitcher of the Week after throwing 12 scoreless innings, including a complete game shutout, to open the season.
