King’s Court: Working Out the Kinks

Women stun Jays, qualify for national tournament

Before the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference postseason tournament started, Webster University women’s basketball coach Jordan Olufson told his players that the regular season no longer mattered. “When you’re playing in this tournament, only today matters,” Olufson said. “The other games go out the window.

It was an iconic moment in Webster athletics history, and players from both NCAA tournament-bound teams will be able to cherish that moment forever.

Softball team reloads for 2011

When a regular season conference champion like the 2010 Webster University softball team loses two-thirds of its roster, one might conclude the following season would be a rebuilding year. Don’t tell that to the Gorloks and their coach Chris Eaton.
