The coming season is jam packed for the university for it will be hosting a number of events, the most popular of which are men’s and women’s basketball, track & field and tennis. The teams will be travelling back and forth from Portland to Seattle with a few games being played in various cities of California as well.

The university has a total of 14 varsity teams that make up the Portland Pilots. Each team holds its tournaments in different allotted stadiums. All basketball games take place at the “Chiles Centre” while the baseball matches are organized in the Joe Etzel Field. Even though sports events had been taking place at the university ever since its inception, it was not until 1989 that the society started to gain prominence. It was with the women’s soccer team that they received their long overdue place in the limelight. At this point, Clive Charles was the coach both for the men’s and women’s team. He is singlehandedly responsible for giving soccer the elevated status it holds today in the Olympic Peninsula. He coached the teams till the day he died in 2003. His replacement was only found in Bill Irwin who remains the coach even today. The women’s team in particular has been fairly successful, winning two national tournaments and being home to some of the most profound international athletes today. Notable alumni include names like Stephanie Lopez, Heath Price and Shannon MacMillan.
Soccer is not the only sport that is played with zeal at the university. Their cross country program is one of the finest in the entire county. Rob Conner is the coach in this sector, an accomplished athlete with a staggering 32 consecutive “West Coast Conference” tournament wins to his name. The men’s team he coaches has managed to reach the Top Ten list four times while playing for the NCAA. The highest ranking they have received so far is at number seven. David Kinsella was the only cross country player in the history of the Portland Pilots to reach number four during the national tournaments.
Other sports groups that have done well are the two basketball teams. The men’s team has reached the final at the NCAA twice. The baseball team has been more successful, making it to the NCAA five times. Moreover, this season will also be promising for the field and track athletes who have been training hard in an attempt to bring their sport to the forefront. In any case the audience will be in for a great time if they buy Portland Pilots tickets for their friends and family.
