Locals, visitors race for campus safety

Tree, plaque in WSU Arboretum honors late track athlete By Emma Ledbetter Evergreen reporter


ommunity members gathered Saturday at Mary’s Park in Pullman in support of the Lauren McCluskey Foundation for the inaugural Race for Campus Safety. The foundation was formed in honor of Lauren McCluskey, who was killed last October on the University of Utah campus where she was a student and track athlete. Lauren McCluskey was a Pullman High School graduate, and her parents, Jill and Matthew McCluskey, are professors at WSU. “It would be nice if we could come together under better circumstances,” said Alex, who was Lauren McCluskey’s freshman year roommate at the University of Utah. Alex wished to omit her last name to keep the focus of the event on Lauren McCluskey. Saturday morning’s race was the first in a series of events to raise money for campus safety, See McCluskey Page 3

Students raise concerns over transparency

Neighboring campus sent email warning about demonstration By Angelica Relente Evergreen reporter

Many students have expressed frustration that they were never warned about a graphic anti-abortion demonstration that appeared on Sept. 16, despite the fact that administration and ASWSU knew it would happen two weeks in advance. ASWSU President Quinton Berkompas said a letter from the demonstration group, The Center for Bio-Ethical Reform, outlined that it would sue the university if it restricted the group’s First Amendment rights. Phil Weiler, WSU vice president for marketing and communications, said WSU must protect free speech rights regardless of the content. The university follows the Washington Administrative Code Chapter 504-33, which outlines the rules groups must follow before exercising free speech activities on campus. Weiler said there was a “struggle” in terms of sending a campus-wide email because some people might perceive it as the university trying to limit the group’s ability to communicate with the public. Prior to the event, the uni-

one population of students. “It was a whole mental ball, like a hit that most students were not prepared about,” Lim said. Students should have received a campus-wide email to notify them about the demonstration, she said, especially because the group has a history of doing displays like this on other colleges.

A man was arrested for a felony after allegedly committing arson in a bathroom at Stubblefields Bar and Grill early Friday morning. Jesus Flores German, 22, was arrested for arson in the first degree before 1 a.m. on Friday. He is currently not booked in the Whitman County Jail, according to the Inmate Listing website. Pullman Police Cmdr. Jake Opgenorth said the fire began in a bathroom trash can. He said a customer put out the fire and reported the incident to Stubblefields staff. Opgenorth said the staff looked at their camera and identified Flores German as the person who allegedly set the fire. The trash can was placed underneath a paper towel dispenser, which could have become dangerous if the fire continued to grow, Opgenorth said. There were around 300

The demonstrators sent a letter to WSU stating they would sue the university if needed. versity placed signs around the demonstration to indicate that there would be a free speech event nearby, he said, which is different than sending an email to avoid the area. “There are those individuals in society that take advantage of free speech rights to make people feel uncomfortable,” Weiler said. “That’s terrible, but it’s not illegal.” Aside from enforcing the

First Amendment, WSU also has to ensure that free speech activities will not disrupt the learning and research environment on campus, according to the website. Grace Lim, Asian Pacific American Student Coalition vice chair, said there were images that referred to historical events, such as the Holocaust and lynchings, which impacted more than just

City of Pullman creates new position to increase business development


Michael Kelly, co-owner of Michelle’s Closet, says big companies such as Walmart make it difficult for local businesses to thrive, so it’s vital for small businesses to distinguish themselves by providing products and services large chains don’t offer.

Development manager hired to supervise local economic growth By Katlyn Cook Evergreen reporter

The city of Pullman recently hired an economic development manager to create a plan to increase the business presence in Pullman. The city council will assess. Jennifer Hackman said she is looking to use her past experiences in economic development to increase the success of businesses in Pullman. She will work alongside the city council and other local organizations, she said.

She said a way to increase foot traffic for Pullman businesses is to expand businesses’ social media presence to help them reach a point where they can hold longer business hours without losing money. “We’d love to see traffic grow to the point where more of our businesses take the plunge and stay open past 5 p.m.,” she said. The co-owners of Michelle’s Closet, Michelle and Michael Kelly, have worked to use social media to advertise their business, Michael Kelly said. “I think that it helps with spreading word-of-mouth. That’s when we’ve seen an increase in the numbers entering our store,” Michael Kelly said.

Michelle Kelly said that’s the only thing they use to promote their business because it is a lot cheaper than radio advertising. Hackman said people have shown interest in bringing new businesses to town. Pullman’s population grew by 6.8 percent in the last five years while jobs increased by 11.5 percent, Hackman said. “We have mad skills that translates into real potential for businesses of all kinds,” she said. Hackman said WSU increases the diversity of Pullman and helps shape and support the businesses that are here. “The university creates knowledge, and knowledge turns into innovations, and

innovations turn into businesses,” she said. Hackman said she’d love to work with WSU to help more students start small businesses in Pullman. Michael Kelly said that big businesses such as Walmart make it harder to compete, but recommends businesses find a way to distinguish themselves and their products, which will help them thrive. Hackman said there are many resources available to support businesses at every stage. The city is revamping its website to help people get access to other resources more easily. There will be links to organizations listed on the website, she said. Michelle Kelly said that she

and her husband received help from multiple city resources including the Pullman Chamber of Commerce when they were trying to start their business. Hackman said she will help assist business owners in identifying the resources available to them. She said she wants to help support the driving industries that have been identified by various sources and plans such as the Pullman 2040 plan, which attempts to improve businesses through collaboration and feedback. “I support those businesses that contribute to the vitality of the city — the restaurants, shops and services that create shared experiences,” Hackman said.

Jodi Walker, University of Idaho director of communications, said they sent a campuswide email to UI students, faculty and staff a day before the same demonstration occurred on their campus. Walker said it was not the first time they notified the entire campus about an event like this, and that the intent was not to make people lean on one side or the other. “We want to be able to provide

people inside the building at the time, he said. Opgenorth said Flores German had a lighter in his possession at the time of arrest. He said police were able to place Flores German at the scene of the incident. He said the Pullman Fire Department did not respond, but one of its arson investi-

UI asked them what they wish they had done to serve their campus better. The university heard repeatedly that it would have been less disruptive if they notified the community prior to the demonstration. Berkompas said they chose not to send a campus-wide email

to avoid adding fuel to the fire. “This wasn’t about First Amendment rights versus protecting students,” he said. “Those First Amendment rights are always going to stand still whether we want them to or not.” A week after the demonstration, Berkompas said ASWSU hosted a “Week of Kindness” to retake the area where the demonstration took place and reestablish the culture WSU had before.

Bringing home closer to WSU Agriculture club hosts fifth Harvest Festival Ch i n es e St u d e n t a n d S ch o l a r s Association hosts MidAutumn Festival to bridge communities on the Palouse By Carolynn Clarey Evergreen reporter

The Chinese Students and Scholars Association celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival at WSU in remembrance of traditional values, unifying relationships and diversity on campus. WSU CSSA President Zhuocheng Huang said he felt that this event brought the community together and made it known to the Asian foreign exchange community that they aren’t alone. The CSSA also used this event to promote cultural diversity on campus. The purpose of these events is to make Asian exchange students “feel connected, even outside their country, outside their culture,” Huang said. “We want to use this event as a bridge to connect them with the WSU community.” Community members went to the event to learn about the Asian community as well as the history of the Mid-Autumn Festival, such as the fact that the festival originated in 1600 B.C. in China to honor the harvest season and the moon. Kallibek Kazbekov, second-year civil engineering graduate student, and his wife Naubakhaz Abdaliera said they attended

for this reason. This was the newlywed’s first outing as a married couple, and it was interesting for them to learn about other cultures, Kazbekov said. To help promote cultural diversity, the CSSA combined traditional songs and performances along with original and modern content. The gala opened with a performance on the guzheng, a traditional Chinese instrument, by Xidan Zhang. Her fingers glided across the strings, filling the room with the gentle and fast-paced notes coming from her instrument. The music switched from traditional to the upbeat modernism of K-Pop as Haoxuan Wu, Ziyi Liu and Zirou Xiao entered stage left. The girls danced to a K-Pop mix titled “Boom” that they choreographed themselves. While the performances were different, they all held the same common theme of family unity, which this festival was centered around. The WSU CSSA has been putting this event on for about seven years, Huang said. They also host similar events like the Spring Festival Carnival.

Despite early morning showers, families and students turn out for the WSU Organic Farm’s annual Fall Harvest Festival on Oct. 7. The festival features a self-pick pumpkin patch, games, refreshments and a produce sale.

Event includes scavenger hunt, pumpkin pie, club-made apple cider By Rachel Koch Evergreen reporter


Ester Lee and fellow dance crew members prepare for their performance at the Mid-Autumn Festival on Saturday night in the CUB auditorium.

‘We represent a minority at WSU, and we represent the rainbow’

The Organic Agriculture Club is working to give fall enthusiasts an event to celebrate the festive season. The club began focusing its efforts at the beginning of the semester at the Eggert Family Organic Farm as they set up the fifth annual Harvest Festival, said Club President Katie Doonan. The Harvest Festival is a pumpkin patch with plenty of seasonal activities, including corn hole, giant Jenga and a game involving a trebuchet, which is a catapult machine, Doonan said. Doonan then added that the Harvest Festival will also include a scavenger hunt, pumpkin pie and apple cider provided by the Organic Agriculture Club. “The biggest draw is definitely the pumpkin patch itself,” she said. “People really like being out in the field and seeing the pumpkins. It just feels so festive out there, and I think it’s such a beautiful location that the students are really going to enjoy.” The Eggert Family Organic Farm captures the fall ambiance perfectly, Doonan said. “It’s probably going to be pretty cold, so they’ll

be able to wear their sweaters and get those perfect pictures for Instagram out there too, but I think just being out on the farm and having that experience is really good for everyone,” she said. Doonan said she recommends that attendees purchase a minimum of three pumpkins. “You’ve got to have at least one with the WSU logo and then for your other spooky logos,” she said. Students living in the dorms can still make use of the pumpkins they purchase at the Harvest Festival, Doonan said. “I would recommend either buying pumpkins and painting them instead of carving them or buying a lot of little pumpkins because they make great dorm decor and they don’t take up as much room,” she said. She hopes to spread the public interest in agriculture and to let students know that they do not need to major in agriculture or have any previous experience to join the Organic Agriculture Club, Doonan said. “I think my favorite thing is how hands-on we are,” she said. “The farm is kind of our home base.” Jordyn Patterson, Doonan’s roommate and a marketing major, joined the club last August, Patterson said. “I’ve always kind of been interested in agricul-

tural stuff,” Patterson said. “I’m from a small town in Ohio where it’s a big deal, and I never really had a chance to get involved. It’s been fun learning.” Patterson also enjoys the festive side of planning the Harvest Festival, she said. “I’m Halloween’s biggest fan,” Patterson said. “We’re going to have a lot of fun little activities that are involved with the spooky season, and I just feel like the atmosphere of a pumpkin patch on the Palouse with all the leaves changing is a good way to get into those vibes.” Patterson said that the Harvest Festival is truly a special event. “The mixture of the students with the community make it a unique situation,” Patterson said. “It gives you these hometown feels and a chance to just feel at home in the Palouse and make it more comforting.” The Harvest Festival will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday at the Eggert Family Organic Farm on the corner of Terre View Drive and Animal Sciences Road behind the bear facility. There will be signs directing people toward the farm on the day of the festival. Prices for purchasing pumpkins are available on The Harvest Festival Facebook page.

The crowd in the CUB Auditorium erupted into applause when the emcee for the night announced the winner of the first Cougar Dance Competition on Thursday night. Kau`i Marley Samio, WSU freshman, said she did not expect to win first place. “I danced for every group of indigenous people so they won’t be afraid of representing their people,” she said. A total of 12 groups of competitors performed during the competition and received feedback from three professional dancers who acted as judges for the night. The event was sponsored by the Student Entertainment Board and University Recreation. Samio channeled her Tahitian culture during her two-minute slot. All three judges commended Samio for her energy throughout the performance and for bringing culture into the competition. She will receive $500 for taking first place. Samio will also perform for various events throughout the year, such as Mom’s Weekend and at football games. Another competitor taking the stage on Thursday was Krimson Kouture, a WSU hiphop dance team. The group performed for the first time this year, with each member wearing a different color shirt. “We represent a minority at WSU, and we represent the rainbow,” said WSU

sophomore Promise Calloway when emcee Joseph Martin asked about the significance of the T-shirts. Krimson Kouture, the only multi-member team to perform, started to practice in August, Calloway said. “Once the tempo changed, you were in your zone,” Judge Cesar Valentino said Other competitors used different styles of dance to show their artistic ability. One competitor combined lip-syncing and vogue-style dance. Drag queen #Objective said she has been performing drag for three years. “I’ve lost every time,” #Objective said. “But I enjoy drag.” One performer used her platform to make a social statement. Hannah Levy, WSU clinical psychology graduate student, went on stage to advocate for mental health issues in student-athletes. Rather than having traditional music, Levy chose to use voice clips from coaches and student-athletes talking about mental health. Levy said she rowed for nine years and knows what it is like as an athlete. “I had coaches, even a nutritionist, but not anyone for mental health,” she said. Other competitors performed in freestyle, contemporary and more. The judges scored four elements: technical, stage presence, execution and choreography. “You get nervous,” Judge Nkeiruka said. “You want to pee 10 times before you get on stage.”

Local business benefits from annual Artwalk Event includes art pieces featuring variety of mediums from embroidery to ceramics By Jessica Schueller Evergreen reporter

Downtown Lewiston hosted its ninth annual Artwalk, an event coordinated by Beautiful Downtown Lewiston and several other local organizations on Friday and Saturday. The event coordinators sought to integrate local art and culture from the growing small business community. “It’s a fun way to see downtown Lewiston,” Cheri Clark, a visitor to the Artwalk, said. Michael Haines, co-owner of The Diamond Shop and a sponsor of the event, said the art walk helps improve the community. Over the course of two days, local artists displayed their artwork in several businesses downtown; on Friday evening, over 3,000 participants strolled around downtown Lewiston enjoying music, artwork and drinks from local brewDARCY DUNBAR | THE DAILY EVERGREEN

eries and wineries, Haines said. The artwork included hand embroidery and ceramics. “A lot of people have been in and looked at my

photography,” local artist Pam Donaldson said. “I’ve sold some photography, kind of got my name out there a little bit.” On Saturday, visitors to the Artwalk could participate in a featured artist demonstration and workshop at the Lewis-Clark State College Center for Arts & History. Attendees could also explore featured artist John Patterson’s artwork. “Every business that participated had something unique […] a different type of art,” Haines said. Kimberly Linder, owner of DayJah Vu Yoga Studio, praised the Artwalk’s community-building purpose. “People really want and need opportunities to get out and be with each other, appreciate the art and to notice all of the new businesses,” Linder said. Downtown Lewiston is also a growing and vibrant community whose small business owners and artists are happy to work together to create engaging events that integrate art, culture and business, Haines said. “I think this whole thing is a great help to downtown Lewiston and to any of the artists,” Donaldson said.


Art is showcased on Saturday afternoon at Art Uncorked in Lewiston, Idaho. “I think this whole thing is a great help to downtown,” local artist Pam Donaldson said.

Soccer is golden against Golden Bears

Team travels to the bay this last weekend to take on Cal at home By Jaclyn Seifert Evergreen reporter

No. 14 WSU beat No. 20 Cal 1-0 in minute one in overtime Sunday afternoon in Berkeley, California, in a battle between two Top-20 teams. After 90 minutes, junior forward Makamae Gomera-Stevens scored the second-fastest goal in overtime history for the Cougars with a golden goal in just 1:11 minute. “It was perfect positioning wise from Mak,” sophomore midfielder Elaily Hernandez-Repreza, who assisted the play, said about her teammate in a post-game interview. It was her third goal of the season and seventh in her WSU career. GomeraStevens is second to graduate student midfielder Averie Collins’ goal. Collins scored only nine seconds into overtime play against Gonzaga earlier this season. Gomera-Stevens scored the goal off a long throw into the 18-yard box by Hernandez-Repreza where Collins headed the ball into a dangerous area for the Cal defense. Then, GomeraStevens bent the ball into the side netting for the only goal of the game. “This is exactly what we

Washington State (9-20, 2-1-0) came out eager to play Sunday in Edwards Stadium after a tough 5-0 loss against Stanford on Thursday. Cal (9-3-0, 1-2-0) also looked for a

win against the Cougars after a 1-0 loss against Washington. It meant everything for her to assist a goal for her team after coming off the loss against Stanford, Hernandez-Repreza said in a post-game interview. Head coach Todd Shulenberger was proud of the road win against Cal after

their tough loss to Stanford. He said the team adapted well to some changes he made after he noticed Cal changed their shape. With 615 in attendance, the Golden Bears out-shot Washington State 14-9 despite both teams being scoreless after two periods of play. With only one shot in

the first half, WSU had a season-low but fought back against Cal in the second half with seven. The Cougars had 10 fouls while Cal had only five. Graduate student goalkeeper Ella Dederick had six saves of the game while Cal had three. WSU had six See Cal Page 8

AP college football poll: week 7 review AP Top 25

Learn what’s right and wrong in this weeks AP poll

1. Alabama (32) (5-0)

By Kuria Pounds Evergreen reporter

We are halfway through the college football season and the race for the College Football Playoff is becoming more interesting with matchups to come in the top 25, especially the top 10. After this week of college football, here’s what’s right and what’s wrong with this week’s AP Top 25 for Week 7. What is right with the AP Top 25 Poll this week: Alabama and Clemson both had byes, so they obviously weren’t going to move at all. But Ohio State, beating Michigan State at home and Georgia beating Tennessee on the road, now sit tied at the third spot. If Ohio State keeps this up and avoids a bad loss in the future, then they will end up in the playoff. LSU and Oklahoma will likely round out the top six, but now it gets interesting. Florida and Wisconsin now have a reason to get a spot. Florida comes off a win at home against Auburn, the biggest win of the season for them. Also, Wisconsin whopped Kent State at home. Notre Dame is also

2. Clemson (15) (5-0) 3. Georgia (3) (5-0) 3.Ohio State (10) (6-0) 5. LSU (2) (5-0) 6. Oklahoma (5-0) 7. Florida (6-0) 8. Wisconsin (5-0) 9. Notre Dame (4-1) 10. Penn State (5-0) 11. Texas (4-1) 12. Auburn (5-1) 13. Oregon (4-1) 14. Boise State (5-0) MIKE MULHOLLAND | MLIVE.COM

15. Utah (4-1)

Arizona State defensive backs redshirt junior Chase Lucas (24) and junior Evan Fields (4) react after a tackle in the third quarter of their game against Michigan State at Spartan Stadium in East Lansing, on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019. Arizona State won the game, 10-7.

16. Michigan (4-1)

not a surprise They shut out Bowling Green State University at home. They should not move up or down. Penn State in the top 10? Good. Penn State is an underrated team, even if they haven’t faced anyone good yet. They will eventually get the respect they deserve when they play good teams, but finally, after this weekend Penn State

18. Arizona State (4-1)

can crack into the top 10. Utah and Arizona State both had byes this week so with the UW and UCF losses, they moved up a couple spots. Michigan and Iowa faced each other in a very defensive game in Ann Arbor, resulting in a 10-3 Michigan win. I expected Michigan to leap Iowa and having them right next to each

other in the rankings is right. Baylor is an underdog team in the Big 12. Now yes, they haven’t faced anyone either, but they deserve to be in the top 25 now. Memphis is the same as Baylor, a good undefeated team that should get some recognition because of their undefeated record, even though their competition is abysmal. Both

Baylor and Memphis are good teams, with strong offenses. They needed to be in the top 25. Cincinnati beat UCF at home, and they’re good. If they didn’t get in the top 25, I would have thrown a riot. And UCF is out of the top 25, for the first time since week 5 of the 2017-18 season. Finally, some change. See Polls Page 8

17. Iowa (4-1) 19. Wake Forest (5-0) 20. Virginia (4-1) 21. SMU (6-0) 22. Baylor (5-0) 23. Memphis (5-0) 24. Texas A&M (3-2) 25. Cincinnati (4-1)



Cougars kill it in Canada

MONDAY, OCT. 7, 2019 | PAGE 7

Cal | Continued from Page 6 corners. Cal had two. In the 77th minute, Dederick saved an important shot with her foot to earn her fourth shutout of the year. To finish out the second half, senior forward Morgan Weaver and Gomera-Stevens both had memorable shots on goal with one hitting the crossbar and another causing the Bears freshman goalkeeper Angelina Anderson to work to make a save. Anderson was on the U.S. roster for the Under-20

FIFA Women’s World Cup in France during the summer of 2018. Cal’s senior forward Abi Kim and junior midfielder Emma Westin both had shots to try to put the Bears ahead. “We are back in it. We are only 2-1 [in conference play], but a long way to go from here now,” Shulenberger said in a post-game interview The Cougars welcome Arizona at 7 p.m. on Thursday on the Lower Soccer Field.

WSU small boats placed second,third, fourth, fifth, eighth, 12th By Allen Leister Evergreen reporter

WSU women’s rowing took the competition up to Canada on the first road trip of its fall season this weekend. The team traveled to Burnaby, British Columbia, to take part in the Burnaby Lake 4K Time Trial regatta. The Cougars competed in the Women’s Senior 1x and Women’s Senior 2- against the University of British Columbia and Simon Fraser University. Five of the seven WSU pairs and one of the two singles qualified for the 250m sprint final in the afternoon. For the Women’s Senior 2event, the boats finished with a good performance as they finished the event in second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, eighth and 12th place out of 13 different pairs total in the event.

The WSU pair of senior Rosalina Torcivia and junior Jessica Norris finished second in the event with a time of 16:14 minutes, only 19 seconds behind first place. “I was really happy with it,” Norris said. “We were up against some really tough competition.” The University of British Columbia pair that won the race qualified to train for the Canadian National Team in a regatta last week. “From the start, we knew we needed to attack the race the entire time,” Torcivia said. Freshman Caitlin Donaldson and junior Kateryna Maistrenko finished third with a time of 16:37 minutes. The pair was 23 seconds away from the Torcivia/ Norris pair ahead of them. Sophomore Gabby Hannen and junior Emma Gribbon finished fourth, less than .1 second slower than Donaldson and Maistrenko. The pair of sophomore Samantha Schmidt and freshman Madeleine Pollard and the pair of senior Kamila Ondrackova and

senior Isabella Cristelli rounded out the pairs to qualify for the final. The pair of junior Emma Barrett and senior Sue Yu finished eighth and the pair of senior Nora Hefte and senior Madeleine Bingham finished 12th. In the Women’s Senior 1x event, senior Renee Kemp took fifth place with a time of 17:57 minutes. Freshman Laurita Nemeraviciute took 10th place with an ending time of 18:53 minutes. Sophomore Megan Duthart finished the event with a scratch which resulted in undocumented time. The 250m final happened later in the afternoon. Kemp finished second in the final with a time of 58.8 seconds. The pair of Gribbon and Hannen finished first with a time of 58 seconds. The pairs finished first, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth. WSU will return to Washington for its next event Oct. 19 for the Head of the Spokane on the Spokane River.

What is wrong with the AP Top 25 Poll this week: Auburn should be ahead of Texas. Though Auburn lost on the road to a freshman quarterback, Texas didn’t look too hot either. Auburn has looked good all season and in their second big test of the season, they did lose to a top 10 team. Meanwhile, Texas did not look like a top 25 team against West Virginia in the first half. Why does Texas get to be ahead of a good SEC football team? Just because Auburn lost by 11 on the road to a top 10 team doesn’t mean they are not a top 10 team anymore. The only reason SMU is in the top 25 this week is because of the UW and UCF losses, and their ability to come back down 30-9 with 11 minutes left in the third quarter and somehow win 43-37 in triple overtime against Tulsa. They have no reason to move up more than one spot when to are losing by more than 20 at home.

They barely pulled out a win and looked horrible for 34 minutes.They at least deserve to fall a spot or two in the rankings. Why is Texas A&M still in? They’re not a top 25 team. They’re still the only 2-loss team in the top 25, and they must play even tougher competition soon. If they are barely winning easier teams at neutral sites, wait until they have to play even harder competition at home or even on the road. Notable matchups for this week: 6th-ranked Oklahoma traveling to 11th-ranked Texas 7th-ranked Florida facing 5th-ranked LSU 10th-ranked Penn State facing 17th-ranked Iowa 1st-ranked Alabama traveling to College Station to face 24th-ranked Texas A&M Hawaii playing 14th-ranked Boise State WSU facing 18th-ranked Arizona State USC going to South Bend to face 9th-ranked Notre Dame

Volleyball has record day in the Galen Center against USC By Damien Alvarado Evergreen reporter

No. 24 WSU volleyball got its first road win 3-2 against the University of Southern California in 21 years on Sunday afternoon. The last road win happened when head coach Jen Greeny was playing for WSU. WSU had a 2-0 set lead on USC, then in the third set, USC pre-

vented WSU’s match point three times to force extra sets in Los Angeles. The Cougars (13-3, 2-2) won the first two sets 25-20 and 25-22. The Trojans (8-6, 2-2) won sets three and four 28-26 and 25-16. In the fifth set, the teams kept it close until the Cougars won 15-13. The Cougars began the match against the Trojans rallying back and forth. WSU eventually caught fire and took a 20-11 lead. The Trojans


fought right back with a 7-2 run of their own to close the gap at 22-18. WSU finished a 3-2 run to win the first set. In the second set, both teams exchanged points and tied the score 10 times. After a 12-12 score, WSU took the lead for the rest of the set. Freshman outside hitter Pia Timmer closed the set with a kill. The Cougars found some rhythm early in the third set generating a 5-0 run against the Trojans. USC began battling

back with a few small runs. The Trojans and the Cougars went on to trade points throughout the later stages of the set. The Trojans took a 28-26 victory to force a fourth set. Momentum shifted toward the Trojans in the fourth set. They took an early 10-7 lead and extended it to 20-14. The Cougars’ errors and the Trojans’ performance in the fourth led to a 25-16 set victory for USC. The fifth set USC took a 2-0 lead and the Cougars trailed.
