🏈👟Seahawks Track: Remember when Seahawk wide receiver DK Metcalf chased down Arizona Cardinal Budda Baker? Well, Metcalf’s putting his speed to the test against elite sprinters. He’s scheduled to run the 100-meter dash at Sunday’s USATF Golden Games and Distance Open at the famed Mt. San Antonio College in California. 

  • He probably won't hit the U.S. Olympic Trials’ automatic qualifying standard of 10.05 seconds, but we’re still excited to see how DK matches up.

⚾️Mariners: The Mariners are the first MLB team to offer COVID-19 vaccines to fans attending games, and unfortunately that’s the only good news coming out of T-Mobile Park. The M’s were on the wrong side of history yesterday, getting shut out 6–0 by the Baltimore Orioles en route to Oriole pitcher John Means’ first career no-hitter. Womp. 

  • The 17-15 M’s hope the bats awaken from their slumber when they take on the Texas Rangers tomorrow at 8:05 p.m. ET/5:05 p.m. PT.

🎓⚽️Soccer: Although UW women’s soccer held No. 2 North Carolina scoreless for two-thirds of the game, the Huskies ultimately fell 1–0 in yesterday’s Sweet Sixteen match. Still, what a great run.

  • The seventh-seeded Husky men hope to fare better in their Sweet Sixteen match today, facing off against Missouri State at 12 p.m. ET/9 a.m. PT. Can the Huskies make it two straight trips to the Elite Eight? Cross your ring and middle fingers.
