WSU Athletics Landscape


Elsewhere in WSU sports teams are actually winning! If you can’t bear to look at Martin for a while, visit the Lower Soccer Field or Bohler Gym. Trust me.

If the football team is not meeting your expectations then have a look at the women’s soccer team. First year head coach Todd Shulenberger has his team firing on all cylinders right now. They are sitting at 4-0-0 after pulling out an improbably road victory at Montana on Friday.

“If you need a sports fix in Pullman there are other programs finding success this fall.”

Tied at 0-0, regulation time had expired and the overtime period was nearly exhausted a penalty shot found the net with 5 seconds remaining! Kailiana Johnson hit the game-winner to stun the Griz faithful. After receiving votes in the top 25 a week ago, expect the Cougars to possibly be ranked in the top 25 as of this week. They have outscored opponents 9-3 in 4 matches.

You can find them live on Friday 9/11 at 7 PM on PAC-12 Networks when the Oklahoma State Cowgirls come to Pullman. OSU has dropped two in a row to ranked opponents and now stands at 2-3-0.

The Cougar Volleyball squad dropped the season opener against Radford but has rattled off 5 victories since. Maybe it took longer than expected for the Pullman walk of fame inductees to get their team going? Radford is only 3-3 and not exactly a national powerhouse. Either way, Jen Greeny’s young team seems to be hitting its stride. The PAC-12 is the most difficult volleyball conference in America so momentem now could help carry this team deep in the season.

Cougar football got you down? Look at the other programs in Pullman that are finding early success.

Go Cougs.
