This Week In Cougar Athletics History
April 22, 1962
In a triangular meet with Oregon State and Idaho, Don Bertoia clocked a Rogers Field record time of 1:51.3 in the half-mile. The record-setting performance was also the 10th fastest time in the nation. The previous Washington State mark was 1:52.1 set by Dale Hall in 1939.

Led by junior shortstop Chuck Brayton (who was later to be known as “Bobo” Brayton), Washington State propelled into first place in the Northern Division with a 3-2 win over the Oregon Ducks.
Brayton, who tripled in two runs in the fifth inning, scored the winning run in the eighth. After reaching second on an error, Brayton stole third and scored what turned out to be the winning run on Larry Orteig's single.
Freshman left-hander Bob Ellingson held Oregon to three hits, one which was a bunt single. Ellingson struck out two and allowed no earned runs.

Led by the ninth place effort of Kim Welch, the Washington State women's golf team finished the Pacific-10 Championships in seventh place at the Trysting Tree Golf Club in Corvallis, Ore.
The Cougars' seventh place finish was the highest finish at the conference championships by a WSU women's golf team, and it also marked the first time in the season that the Cougars toppled the Washington Huskies, who were ranked 20th nationally coming in. The Huskies finished the championships in eighth place.
Welch's ninth place effort was the highest finish by a WSU female golfer since the inception of the program. Welch was the only player to break par on a wet and windy Saturday, firing a 70, recording birdies on four of the final five holes.
