Regional Roundup -- Mixed Doubles: Husky Tennis Teams Roll
Seattle Times News Services: AP
It was anything but a double-fault day for Husky tennis.
The Washington men's and women's tennis teams each won the Pac-10 Northern Division title yesterday.
The men earned their 19th straight conference crown, while the women won their eighth consecutive championship.
The men's squad cruised to the title by winning all 40 of their matches in the Pac-10 Individual Tournament in Eugene, Ore. Combined with last week's duals, the Huskies amassed 53 points.
The Husky women defeated Washington State 6-3 in the final contest of the Pac-10 North dual match round-robin tournament at Nordstrom Tennis Center. The win, combined with Friday's 9-0 shutout victory over Oregon, gave the Huskies 15 points in the tournament.
SOUNDERS SIGN MCCORMICK
Dick McCormick, a former Tacoma Star and one of the brightest stars in the Continental Indoor Soccer League, has become the fifth player to sign a one-year contract with the fledgling Seattle Sounders soccer team of the American Professional Soccer League.
McCormick, who led the CISL's Portland Pride in scoring last season, graduated from Bellevue's Interlake High School in 1987.
SPU CAPS SOLID WEEKEND
DENTON, Texas - Chrissy Rice of Seattle Pacific University placed third in the uneven bars to cap a solid weekend at the national gymnastics championships.
Rice received a 9.550 in the individual competition, while teammate Stacey Hastings was fourth in the balance beam with a 9.500.
Late Saturday night, SPU recorded a 186.425 to finish third in the team competition.
-- Julie Holt, Gonzaga's head coach for the past five seasons, is the new women's basketball coach at the University of Idaho.
-- Washington sophomore Todd Campbell won the pole vault, senior Claudine Robinson won the 100-meter hurdle race and both registered NCAA provisional qualifying marks late Saturday, helping the Husky track and field team win a four-team meet at Husky Stadium.
Campbell, a product of Bellevue's Eastside Catholic High School, topped his previous outdoor best by over one foot to reach the NCAA provisional pole vault standard. His winning clearance of 17 feet, 5 3/4 inches elevates him to the No. 6 spot on the all-time list of Washington pole vaulters.
Robinson improved her NCAA qualifying mark with a career-best time of 13.55-seconds in the 100-meter hurdles. That mark would have improved her school record of 13.56, but it was aided by an illegal wind of 3.31 mph.
