Also in the game Ashley Charters extended her hitting streak to 12 games. UW had a few opportunities to score but could never get anybody home, ala the Mariners of last year, you know bases loaded nobody out then, popout, strike out, screaming line drive to a diving first baseman who snags a Sportscenter highlightesque ball. The Dawgs had a chance for revenge on Sunday in Palo Alto but were shut out again by the mighty Cardinal. The Huskies have one more chance to beat Stanford in the regular season on May 7th when they come into Seattle for a visit.
The weekend trip wasn't a total loss for the Huskies as 5 Dawgs qualified for the West Regionals at the Stanford Invitational in Casey's favorite event, the pole vault. Leading the way for Washington was sophmore Scott Roth who vaulted for the first time outdoors in almost two years. Roth took first in the event by clearing 17-feet, 8 1/2 inches which was better by 4 inches than runner up Robert Low of BYU. Taking third was fellow Husky Jared O'Connor.Next up for the Huskies track team is a visit to Tucson, Arizona for the Jim Click Shootout on April 4th. Yeeee Haaaaaa!!!!!
