After impressive fall and winter seasons, our spring sports teams continued the momentum last year. Here are a few highlights:
Softball: A winning symphony
The Softball team took center stage last season, with an overall record of 44-15 and a conference record of 16-8. The team’s triumphs were attributed to the collective effort of their talented players.
Beyond the diamond, the team showcased their excellence in academics, with multiple players earning a spot on the 2023 Spring Academic Honor Roll. Leading this symphony of success was Coach Heather Tarr, who places a strong emphasis on academics and has led the team to multiple academic honors.
Track & Field: Scholastic achievement at its finest
The Track & Field team proved to be an academic powerhouse. Alongside remarkable performances in competition, 113 Track & Field student-athletes made the Pac-12’s 2023 Spring Academic Honor Roll.
Four exceptional student-athletes from Washington were selected for the renowned 2022–23 Men’s Track & Field / Cross Country Academic All-American teams. Read more about the UW Track & Field team’s remarkable achievements on pages 14-15.
Rowing: Racing towards glory
Men’s Rowing secured a second-place finish in the Varsity Eight at the IRA Championships. The Women’s Rowing team finished second at the NCAA Championships — their best team result since winning the national title in 2017.
Both teams demonstrated strong academic achievements, with 22 members from the Men’s team and 16 members from the Women’s team earning spots on the Pac-12’s Spring Academic Honor Roll. Additionally, the Intercollegiate Rowing Association (IRA) recognized 18 members of the Washington Men’s Rowing team on the All-Academic Team for the 2022–23 academic year.
UW’s spring sports season was a true testament of dedication and commitment to our Husky student-athletes. They couldn’t have done it without your continuous and generous support of UW Athletics.
