Washburn Review


The tennis teams traveled to Wichita Falls, Texas, to take part in the Midwestern State Invitational. Chase Brill and the duo of Paul Haas and Alejandro Valarezo brought home championship titles in singles and doubles, respectively. The women’s team saw several players reaching the semifinal rounds and even having the duo of Madison Lysaught and Svea Crohn reach the finals. The tennis teams will play in the ITA Central Regional starting on Sept. 28.


Against the University of Nebraska-Kearney, Paige Swanson scored very early in the game. The Ichabods held onto that 1-0 lead for the rest of the game to win the match. Success didn’t repeat when the team faced Emporia State. The Hornets defeated Washburn 3-0. The soccer team’s next match is against Fort Hays State on Sept. 21.

Cross Country

The cross country runners competed in the Missouri Southern State University Stampede on Sept. 15. Both teams performed well as the men’s team finished eighth out of 27 teams and the women’s team finished 12th out of 32 teams.


The golf team played at Northeastern State University on Sept. 17 and 18. Washburn placed fifth out of the 18 teams competing. Their next outing will be at Winona University from Sept. 24-25.


The football team played the Fort Hays State Tigers. After an early lead built by Fort Hays, Washburn couldn’t come back to win the game, despite a late-game attempt to rally. Their next game is against the University of Central Missouri on Sept. 22.
