PLU DUFFERS 25TH IN FINAL NATIONAL COACHES POLL

The two-time Northwest Conference champion Pacific Lutheran University men’s golf squad is ranked 25th in the final regular season installment of the Division III Bushnell Golfweek Coaches Poll released on Friday, May 4.

The Lutes, fresh off a victory at the 2018 NWC Championships, accumulated 26 points in the poll to rank 25th as the lone conference representative in the rankings. Methodist University sits atop the rankings with 380 points and four first place votes. Huntington University is second with 373 points and three first-place nods while the University of Saint Thomas is third with 365 points and six first-place endorsements. Emory University is fourth with 357 points and one first-place vote. Sixth-ranked Illinois Wesleyan University and seventh-ranked Guilford College received the remaining two first-place votes.

PLU will return to action on Tuesday, May 15, for day one of the NCAA Division III Championships. The Lutes qualified after winning the NWC regular season crown after finishing third at the NWC Fall Classic and winning the NWC Spring Classic and the NWC Championships.

LUTES KEEP PACE WITH NATION’S BEST ON OPENING DAY

The seventh-ranked and three-time Northwest Conference champion Pacific Lutheran University women’s rowing team once again proved it can compete against some of the nation’s top programs, competing at the Opening Day races on Saturday, May 5, through the Montlake Cut.

“It was a beautiful day of racing up in Seattle for Opening Day. The 2V started us off racing against a UW boat that was pretty quick, which was to be expected. Washington is a phenomenal program and part of the reason we go up there is to test our mettle against the best,” said PLU head coach Andy Foltz.

“It’s just great to experience the spectacle that is opening day. It is the only time really that rowers have the opportunity to race in a legitimate stadium-type event with fans lining the shore and in boats along the course. This is something that not a lot of rowers get to experience and it has the experience of a professional sporting event.”

The Lutes second varsity eight opened the day with a runner-up finish in the women’s collegiate open race, traversing the 2,000-meter course through the cut in seven minutes, 27.001 seconds. PLU enjoyed a massive 11-second gap on Division II Seattle Pacific University (7:38.639) and a 22-second buffer on Division I Seattle University. The second novice boat from defending Division I national champion University of Washington led wire-to-wire to win the race.

“The 2V came away with a great race and really put together a good piece. A little bummed with the conditions with a headwind so they didn’t really get a true sense of their speed with their time but they were able to beat SPU and Seattle U and that was a big time race.”

The Lutes 1V8+ competed in the Cascade Cup, finishing third in 7:11.028. The Lutes sat in second after 500 and 1,000 meters of race but was unable to fend off a late charge from the defending Division II national champions from Western Washington University as the Vikings clocked a 7:08.505 to finish behind Washington’s 3V8+ (6:41.661).

“The varsity eight was something pretty special, regardless of the result. We got an invite to the Cascade Cup, which is a prestigious event. We had a nice D1, D2, D3 showdown kind of like the 2V race however this time had great boats from national championship squads to race against and it is really cool to see our women go head-to-head and push Western.”

The Lutes look to punch their ticket to the NCAA Division III Championships for the third consecutive season and will learn their NCAA fate on Monday, May 14, at 4 p.m. when the field is announced. The 2018 Championships will be held in Sarasota, Florida and is set to begin on May 25.

“We’ve been working really hard since conference in hopes that we’ll get that NCAA bid out of the Pacific region and be prepared come nationals. The workouts have been really taxing this week, so it’s great to see the women step up and put together a great race.”

GRADDY TOPS ALL-TIME PLU JAVELIN MARK IN OREGON

Machaela Graddy shattered the school record in the javelin on Friday, May 4, inching further up the national performance list to headline the Pacific Lutheran University track & field teams efforts at the Oregon Twilight held at historic Hayward Field.

Graddy, the Northwest Conference champion in the javelin throw, uncorked a toss of 141 feet, six inches, shattering the Lute school record by two feet, surpassing the previous mark of 139’ 6” set by Leah Proctor in 2001. The throw allowed the senior to finish third overall at the event, but more importantly, moves her up from 11th to ninth on the NCAA Division III performance list.

Bo Frohock was seventh in the 3,000-meter steeplechase and the top Division III competitor in the event, crossing the tape in nine minutes, 43.57 seconds. Erik Swartout rounded out the Lute contingent at the meet, finishing ninth in the javelin with a heave of 177’ 3”.

UPS’ HIPP NAMED TO ALL-WIRA SECOND TEAM

Senior women’s rower Kayla Hipp was named to the All-WIRA Second Team following the Western Intercollegiate Rowing Association Championships.

Hipp collects her second award this spring. During the Puget Sound All-Sports Celebration, Hipp and fellow rower Louisa Cryan received the Paul and Helen Perdue Award for Community Service. The pair raised more than $11,000 for the St. Baldrick’s Foundation to combat childhood cancers.

During the WIRA Championships, Puget Sound’s W2V8 timed in at 7:22.419, placing second overall in its race. The Loggers beat boats from UC-San Diego, Humboldt State, and UC-Davis.
