Farewell for Hankoff in Pullman

Adrian Hankoff may play the final home games of her Washington State University volleyball career this weekend.

California, eighth in the Pac-10 standings, visits Pullman, Wash., on Friday night, while the No. 1-ranked Stanford Cardinal (24-3) invade the Palouse on Saturday.

Hankoff, a former star player for the South Tahoe Vikings; LaToya Harris, Holly Harris, Kortney Jamtaas and Chelsie Schafer are the Cougars’ contingent of seniors who have guided the team to a 17-7 overall record.

Washington State could host the first and second rounds of a West regional if selected to the NCAA Tournament, prolonging the seniors’ home matches.

The 17th-ranked Cougars could all but lock up an NCAA bid by sweeping the Bay Area schools this weekend. The Cougars are tied with Washington for fifth place in the conference standings at 7-7. Third-place Arizona (10-7) and fourth-place UCLA (8-7) are within reach for the Cougars.

Washington State pulled into the fifth-place tie with Washington by sweeping the Huskies 30-19, 30-20 and 30-28 Nov. 8 in Pullman. Hankoff had 13 digs, five kills, one block and one service ace.

Big game for Mac, Pack

Freshman Garrett McIntyre of South Lake Tahoe made two tackles for losses in Fresno State’s 31-12 football triumph over Tulsa last Saturday in Fresno, Calif.

McIntyre had a tackle for a 5-yard loss in the first quarter and a second-quarter tackle for a 1-yard loss.

The Bulldogs (5-5) will play Nevada (5-5) on Saturday in Fresno. Game time is 4 p.m. The game can be seen on KRNV (NBC).

Less than 2,000 tickets are available for the game, which has bowl game ramifications.

Tickets for the game are available through the Fresno State ticket office by calling (559) 278-DOGS or online at http://www.gobulldogs.com. Internet sales end Friday at 5 p.m.

Collins third twice in tie with Cal Baptist

Junior Kristi Collins collected two of Fresno State’s 12 top-three places to help the Fresno State Bulldogs tie Cal Baptist 57-57 last Friday in Riverside, Calif.

In the 50 breaststroke, Collins came in third at 32.52. She also finished third in the 50 butterfly with a time of 27.93.

In the team’s previous meet on Nov. 2 in Los Angeles, Collins teamed with Carolyn Wigginton, Greer McGettrick and Lindsay Palmberg to win the 400 medley relay in 4:00.37 in the Bulldogs’ 169-38 rout of Loyola Marymount.

The Bulldogs return to action Nov. 23 when they travel to Flagstaff, Ariz., for a meet with Northern Arizona and New Mexico State.
