PULLMAN – The women’s soccer team squared off against the women’s volleyball team Wednesday evening, Aug. 11, at Bailey-Brayton field, in softball game that was all Cougars.
In the end, the Cougar soccer team beat their WSU volleyball counterparts, 5-2, in exhibition action. Head coaches Matt Potter (soccer) and Andrew Palileo (volleyball) led their teams. (Video below)
Donnie Marbut, WSU baseball head coach, was umpire.
Tied, 1-1, after its scheduled five innings, the game went into extra innings with soccer outscoring volleyball by four runs to one in the seventh inning for the final score.
Although billed as an exhibition between teams, some coaches of the teams got into action, too. Fans in the stands included members of the WSU football team.
Scoring was kept on Bailey-Brayton’s new scoreboard which features a video board. The winners had five runs on 11 hits with four errors. The losers stats in the same respective categories, 2-9-5.
Seasons begin for the teams — both 2009 NCAA postseason participants — later this month. On Aug. 20, WSU Soccer hosts Florida State at 3 p.m. on the Lower Soccer Field. On Aug. 27, WSU Volleyball plays U.C. Irvine at 7 p.m. in Bohler Gym as part of the Nike Cougar Invitational.
Prioritizing family, whether at home or on the field, is what drives Jake Dickert in his first full season as the WSU head football coach. Dickert and the Cougs play the Huskies in the Apple Cup this Saturday.
The first five inductees were Shelley Broader, Nancy Krook, Lisa King, Katey Koehn, and Gary Rubens — all leaders in business or philanthropy and supporters of the worldwide WSU Global Campus community.
