The Huskies finally found some offense and it came at just the right time. Down 0-1 against Michigan in the bottom of the fourth Washington went on a four run rally, enough to keep them in Oklahoma for another game.
Two days ago, it only took two hits for the Washington softball team to get a win. Saturday, that wasn't enough. Offensive woes continued for the Huskies as Tennessee put base-runner after base-runner on third base and finally got a run in the bottom of the seventh inning. The Huskies will play in an elimination game Sunday at 12:30 p.m. PST.

Prior to the arrests, the flashbangs, and smoke bombs, the sounds of drums, chanting, and the occasional truck horn filled the air as thousands of demonstrators made the march from Judkins Park to the Henry Jackson Federal Building on Second Avenue and Madison Street during the 13th Annual May Day march. Leading the movement, dancers from CeAtl Tonalli performed traditional dance throughout the
3.3 mile walk. Brandishing picket signs, posters, and megaphones, the nearly four-block span of marchers protested current immigration policy, labor wages, and inequality. By Joshua Bessex
Washington's dreams of a national championship were cut short Sunday night by No. 1 Oklahoma. The Huskies struggled to gain any momentum on offense and the Sooners took advantage of Washington's mistakes to take the game 6-2.
ASUW Arts and Entertainment director Ryan Baker and assistant director Marika Justad met in May 2012. Justad, in the process of re-forming a band with Miro Lion and Toby Kuhn, mentioned to Baker that they were looking for a bass player. By June, the four-piece band Tangerine had formed with Justad (vocals, guitar, keyboard), Kuhn (guitar, vocals), Baker (bass, vocals), and Lion (drums, vocals). They recorded a four-track demo in October. In December, the band contacted Swoon Records, a Tacoma-based independent label, and recorded its debut EP, “Pale Summer,” in January. The EP was released March 23.
Tangerine’s recorded sound doesn’t differ much from its live music. This may explain why the band was able to record a demo in eight hours and its EP over the course of a weekend. The band’s performances are lively, bringing the crowd to dance to Tangerine’s harmoniously layered poppy rhythm and well laid-out melody, Justad’s sweet, angelic voice, and the well-timed “oohs” and “ahhs.”
It’s difficult to tell who is enjoying the show more: the audience or the band.
The UW Friday Harbor Laboratories located on San Juan Island allows students, researchers, and their families, to gather and study subjects ranging from oceanography to sociology. The isolation this location provides for the researchers allows each to pursue their academic endeavors, as well as to form close relationships with fellow residents. The areas surrounding the research lab provide a range of various marine and terrestrial environments for researchers to conduct long and short-term research.
