This Week in Geoduck Athletics

While clocks may be turning back on Sunday morning (friendly reminder), the Geoducks continue to move ahead as both men’s and women’s soccer, as well as volleyball, are still in playoff contention and the men’s and women’s basketball teams prepare for a busy November!

Men’s Basketball
After going 1-1 in Kamloops, British Columbia last weekend, the Geoduck men’s basketball team has the weekend off from competition before making the short trek to Lacey on Tuesday to take on Thurston County rival Saint Martin’s in an exhibition contest.  Tip with the Saints is set for 7:30 p.m. at Marcus Pavilion, following the conclusion of the exhibition game between the Geoducks and Saints women’s teams.

Women’s Basketball
The Geoducks continue to prep for the 2013-14 season and will finally get a game-day atmosphere on Tuesday when they head over to rival Saint Martin’s for a exhibition as part of a women/men doubleheader at Marcus Pavilion in Lacey.  The Evergreen women are set to tip at 5:15 p.m. against the Saints, who are picked to finish eighth in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference this season.

Men’s Soccer
The Evergreen men’s soccer team is on the road for the rest of the 2013 season but the Geoducks find themselves in a strong position to make the Cascade Conference tournament for the second straight season.  This weekend, the Geoducks head to Kirkland to take on in-state rival Northwest, beginning at 1 p.m. on the NU campus.

Women’s Soccer
Geoduck women’s soccer plays their final two home games of the season this week as they host Southern Oregon on Thursday (It should be a spooktacular match) and Oregon Tech on Saturday.  On Thursday, the Geoducks invite all fans to show up in their most scary, or silly, Halloween costumes as the green and white look for an important win against the Raiders.  Saturday is both Senior Day and Breast Cancer Awareness day as fans are invited to trade in their green for pink as Evergreen honors their seniors before the game.

Currently tied for seventh place, the Geoducks will look to keep their playoff hopes alive as they visit Northwest Christian on Friday night and Corban on Saturday.  Both matches are very important for the green and white and both matches are set to begin at 7 p.m.

Geoduck Gallop
Runners looking for something to do on Feb. 1 can stop their search as the Geoducks are proud to announce the annual Geoduck Gallop 10k/Half-Marathon will take place beginning at 9 a.m.  For more information, including how to register, visit the Geoduck Gallop page here.
