Take this time off to check out some games you might have missed!

Good morning, Coug fans. What a strange time we’re in, huh? It feels weird not to talk about it, but I’m sure we’re all a little burned out, and maybe confused or scared. And now we don’t have live sports. That’s pretty strange.

But what we do have is recaps of games you might have missed! In this time of staying home, get caught up on some games! For example, let’s talk about the ladies!

Women’s volleyball beat the Huskies twice!! Here and here! They also beat the Ducks twice, both games ending in WSU’s 3-1 favor.

We know and love soccer, and I’m going to throw them some love anyway! If you missed any of these games, first of all- how? Second of all- why?

Soccer had two games where they scored 6 goals, one against James Madison and one against Montana. Another great game was the West Virginia elimination to secure the Cougs’ spot in the Elite 8. That game made history for the program.

I’d also like to remind you that the Portland Thorns love Morgan Weaver! So glad she’s there.

Women’s basketball played UW twice, and on the most recent round we did beat the Huskies! That’s always exciting!

The moral of my story here is we can still find joy in our world without live sports. I would really encourage all of you to find a sport you might not know a whole lot about, and watch some footage and see what you see. For me, the only sport I feel confident I know most about is football, so learning about other sports and the athletes that bring the games to life has been a huge treasure for me. Thank you for giving me that. And watch Volleyball specifically! It’s so cool! Also wash your hands.
