Washington’s softball team scored five runs in the third inning Saturday en route to a 9-6 Pac-12 victory over host California.
At some point, UW coach Chris Petersen is going to hand the keys to the program to Jake Browning, the prep phenom. But it’s the Huskies’ present that is wide open – and tilting in the direction of Jeff Lindquist.
Quarterback Jeff Lindquist caps off a steady spring with a good performance in UW’s spring preview, though several questions remain as the Huskies break for the summer.
Unbeaten in a collegiate dual meet or championship final since 2010, the UW men’s varsity eight fell to top-ranked California by roughly seven seats, a nearly three-second margin. The Bears also won the women’s varsity eight race.
Lindquist: "Obviously, I want to win the job, but ultimately the goal for us is to win Rose Bowls, and whoever’s the best guy leading the show, that’s who it should be."
Smith on freshman QB Jake Browning: "His approach, if it sustains like he’s been doing, he’s going to be a really good player here.”
Petersen on progress of junior QB Jeff Lindquist: "Jeff has taken a step forward, he really has. He’s been making better decisions. I think he’s throwing it more accurately."
