The Bellevue Blackhawks, defending ABA Western Conference champions, have signed a lease to play their 18 home games this season at the Meydenbauer Convention Center.


“We’re flat-out thrilled,” team president and general manager Michael Tuckman said in a news release. “This is a giant leap forward for pro basketball on the Eastside.”


Bellevue will open its home schedule next Wednesday against the expansion Tacoma Navigators, who are coached by former Sonic Vincent Askew.


Cross Country


• Junior Logan Senrud and senior Laura Trevellyan were voted most valuable men’s and women’s runners by their Western Washington University teammates.


Senrud overcame an early season arch injury to be the top WWU men’s runner in three races, placing sixth at the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Championships and 17th at the NCAA Division II West Regional.


Trevellyan, a two-time All-American, narrowly missed qualifying for her third consecutive trip to nationals. She led the Vikings in every race, finishing ninth at regionals.


• Five Huskies were named to the Pac-10’s All-Academic first or second teams. Included were four of the seven runners who will lead Washington’s men’s team at the NCAA Championships on Monday.


Junior Travis Boyd was UW’s lone first-team representative with a 3.72 grade-point average.


Boyd, the team’s No. 4 finisher at last week’s NCAA West Regional Championships, was joined by second-teamers Andy Fader (3.42), Mark Mandi (3.34), and Kevin Peters (3.45).


UW women’s runner Angela Wishaar (3.85) earned second-team honors.


Gymnastics


• Former UW gymnast Molly Seaman was named the 2005 female recipient of the Pac-10 Leadership Award. The award carries with it a $1,500 scholarship for postgraduate study.
