The football team has the week off, but that doesn’t mean there’s not a lot of news about Beaver sports. Here’s some of what’s happening this week.

The Women’s Golf Team has gotten their season started with a bang, winning the team title at the Cougar Cup, a tournament hosted by Washington State at the Palouse Ridge Golf Course. The Beavers finished with a total of 844, 20 under par for the course. They were 8 strokes ahead of the second place Ducks
Three Beavers posted scores in the top 10, including Ellie Blama finishing second overall with a score of 208. The Beavers next tournament will be the Molly Collegiate Invitational in Portland, from September 30-October 1st.
Women’s Basketball continues to tear it up on the recruiting trail, with 6’1” forward Savannah Samuel announcing her decision to join Oregon State yesterday. Samuel currently plays for St Francis in Alpharetta, Georgia, and while she is not ranked in ESPN’s top 100, other rankings have her as high as 57th overall.
For more info, check out BeaverBlitz’s story on Samuel.
Oregon State has announced they’ll be giving away additional football tickets to season ticket holders. In an e-mail sent out earlier this week, the Athletic Department offered additional tickets for any of the Beavers’ remaining home games at no additional cost. The Oregonian has the full story.
If you’re not a season ticket holder, it might be time to make some new friends. And if you are a season ticket holder, maybe hook up your old buddy John.
Finally, everyone here at Building the Dam is extremely grateful that Mike Parker is safe and uninjured. The Voice of the Beavers had a big scare this week when his car spun out on I-5 and collided with a barrier.
Well Beaver Nation, all I can say is that I'm extremely thankful to have walked away from this at MP 241. As my car spun out on I-5 south, I had some doubts. My thanks to the EMT's, Trooper Mike Wahlberg, Lyle from ODOT, Micah Smith. OK! pic.twitter.com/D1h9kSHBu2— Mike Parker (@MEPOSU) September 16, 2019
It looks pretty scary, but thankfully Mike is alright and should be calling Beaver games for a long time to come.
That’s all for today, check back later for more Beaver news!
