The Huskies wrapped up their 2014 Collegiate season placing 4th at the Northwest Collegiate Championships in Corvallis, Oregon. Washington won their first game easily against an overmatched Portland State Team 16-6. In the semi-finals they faced arch nemesis Oregon once again. After a slow start the Huskies came back in the 2nd quarter and trailed 6-4 at half. But the Ducks swam away with it in the 3rd quarter and never looked back winning 14-6. Washington then faced WSU for the 3rd/4th place game. Washington dominated the play the first 3 quarters and entered the last quarter ahead 12-7. However, Husky mistakes let the Cougars back in the game and a last second shot by WSU tied the game up. In OT the Huskies failed to take advantage of their opportunities and eventually lost 16-15. It was a good season the team just needs to learn to play together better. We are already looking forward to next year with most of all our players returning.
The 2014 National Championships this year will be hosted by the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Nov 7-9th
