Huskies shine on the national stage

The Huskies made us proud in NCAA tournaments as 2021 drew to a close, with Volleyball making it to the Sweet Sixteen and Men’s Soccer playing in the College Cup title match for the first time in program history.

Men’s Soccer finished the year 18-2-2 after falling to Clemson 2-0 in the national championship match. The record-setting year included the best start to a season in program history, tied the record for most wins in a season and broke the Husky Soccer Stadium attendance record.

Also for the first time in history, two players — Dylan Teves and Ryan Sailor — were named First Team All-Americans.

Volleyball earned the Pac-12 crown and ended the season 26-5, falling to No. 2-ranked Texas in five sets on the Longhorns’ home court. For the first time since 2006, Husky Volleyball saw two First Team All-Americans — Ella May Powell and Samantha Drechsel — and one Second Team All-American — Claire Hoffman.

In addition, for just the fifth time in school history and the third time in the past seven seasons, both Washington Men’s and Women’s Cross-Country teams placed in the top-15 in the NCAA championships.

Thank you, donors and fans, for making all of our fall season achievements possible!
