Spring sports enter championship week

NCAA Football: Washington State at Southern California Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

And then there were two.

With the WSU baseball team wrapping its season over the weekend, the spring sports season at Washington State has nearly come to a close. We are now in the championship weeks with WSU tennis and track & field the only Cougar teams still active.

On the tennis side, Michaela Bayerlova is the lone Coug still playing as she beings playing in the NCAA singles championships on Monday.

Bayerlova is ranked No. 36 heading into the tournament. She is the only WSU player to ever win a round in the NCAA singles championship, having done so in 2019.

The track & field team will be busy at the NCAA West regional this week with 20 individuals and one relay team competing to move onto the NCAA championships. WSU had a strong showing at the Pac-12 Championships last week. Those who qualify will compete for national titles at the NCAAs beginning June 8.

The WSU sports void is almost here, but hopefully, some Cougs take home some hardware first.
