Washington State Cougars News, Notes and AM Links 5/14


Washington State sports has been busy as of late and is winding down the Spring seasons now. A few of the more interesting notes and newsworthy items to finish up the school year.

First things first a very big CONGRATULATIONS to Kristine Felix, who became the first Cougar woman to win the conference championships in the pole vault Sunday at the Pac-12 Track & Field Championships on Cromwell Field at Loker Stadium on the USC campus. Felix is only a freshman! More on her story at WSU Athletics.

The Cougar baseball team had high hopes for the post season after a good start to the year, but the wheels have fallen off in the second half and unfortunately their record is now 21-27 after a 3-14 stretch. The latest tragedy came at the hands of UC Santa Barbara yesterday.

WSU alum Klay Thompson continues his quest for an NBA Championship at 6:30 tonight when his Golden State Warriors take on the San Antonio Spurs at 6:30. It will be Game 5 of the best of 7 series, with the series tied up a 2 apiece. Of course Thompson’s 34 point effort in Game 2 at San Antonio was one of the highlights of the series and we’ve been keeping close tabs on his action on twitter and here at ACU.

More on those stories and more track and field from CougFan. More links below.
