The Eastside Hawks have been named the American Football Association Semi-Pro Football national champions by the AFA’s postseason national tournament committee.

The Hawks, owned by Sam Adams, a former Seahawks defensive lineman now playing for the Buffalo Bills, went 15-0 record this past season to earn the committee’s vote. The Hawks also picked up their second straight Northwest Football League Championship this season, and their first North American Football League postseason tournament title.

Eastside players will have their names engraved on the AFA’s Arthur S. Arkush Memorial Cup. Over the past 24 years, the names of 1,227 players winning AFA national championships have been engraved on the Arkush Cup.

UW to host women’s golf regional championship

The NCCA named the University of Washington as host for the 2006 Division I women’s golf West Regional championship, May 11-13 at Washington National Golf Club.

This will be the third NCAA championship event Washington National has hosted. The course also hosted the 2002 Division I women’s championship and the 2003 Division I men’s West Regional.

“The bid process for these tournaments is usually very competitive, and I think this says a lot about the job Washington National and its staff have done in the two previous NCAA events they have hosted,” Huskies coach Mary Lou Mulflur said. “It will be a tremendous advantage for our team to be able to compete for the opportunity to advance to the NCAA championships by playing on our home course.”
