WSU added a few more trophies to the case in 2014-15, as the softball and men’s tennis teams each earned Big Sky Conference championships, and Waldo won a national championship.
A Team With a Dream
Six years removed from a reboot of the softball program — following a nearly 30-year break — Weber State made its debut in the NCAA tournament. En route to a school-record 38 wins, the Wildcats steamrolled through the Big Sky tournament to punch their NCAA ticket. Twelve Wildcats earned All-Conference honors, while Mary Kay Amicone was named Big Sky Coach of the Year.
Game, Set, Match!
The men’s tennis team earned 10 consecutive conference victories, helping the Wildcats secure back-to-back Big Sky regular-season crowns.
Juniors Jakub Gewert, Todd Fought and Landon Barlow each earned All-Conference honors and led WSU to the Big Sky postseason tournament. The three underclassmen accumulated a total of 40 wins for the Wildcats, who are primed for a three-peat attempt next season.
Waldo Wins National Title
Weber State knows Waldo has spirit, but now the whole country does too. Joining the WSU Spirit Squad in Daytona Beach, Florida, for the NCA Collegiate Cheer and Dance Championships in April 2015, Waldo won the NCA Collegiate National Mascot Championship.
Waldo defeated mascots from across the country, posting a winning score in a competition that judged character, creativity, crowd interaction, dance and the use of props.
