Class resumed as normal yesterday as students returned from exotic trips to places like Cabo, Cancun, San Diego and Boise. Just about every sport had games/events over break but if you look at the results, they went on a mental trip of their own.
- The men's tennis team went 1-4 over the break as they went 1-2 in at the Red Lion Spring Break Tournament at Boise State. They also lost to Nevada and Sac State in the opening weekend of Spring Break.
- The women's tennis team did manage to end a 6-match losing streak with a win over Lewis and Clark State. No Griz team should ever lose to a team with a school name like that. Well, unless it's in chess or scrabble or maybe slack-lining. They couldn't keep it going though, as the ladies lost to Idaho on Friday. They are now 2-12. Ouch.
- The Griz golf team traveled down to Cali for the UC-Davis hosted Anteater Invitational. Anyone know if there was an actual anteater on hand? Or is that their mascost? Had there been an anteater there it would've been the most interesting thing for a Griz fan as our team finished last out of 15 teams.
- Last week, I touted the Griz lacrosse team a bit and told Griz fans to head to Wash-Griz to check out our solid squad in a few matches. There Griz went 0-2 in those matches with losses to Montana State (come on) and Utah Valley State College. Another school we shouldn't lose to due to a name that just makes them sound bad. I know they were #4, but we were ranked higher and we're University of Montana. Named for a whole state... without a 'state' attached.
- The Griz track team, who I also touted before taking my own break, did manage to meet my expectations as they kept their eyes on the prize instead of the wet t-shirt contests they might be missing by staying in Missoula. The runners, throwers and whoever else dominated at the Al Manuel Invitation held here in Missoula. The Griz swept the weekend as both the men and women each won duel meets over Easter Washington and Montana State. Sixteen individuals qualified for the Big Sky Championship — yeah, it's kind of odd you can do that in the first meet of that season — and thirteen won their events.
