This Week In Cougar Athletics History
May 29, 1990
Sophomores Scott Hatteberg (.381, 29 doubles, eight home runs) and pitcher Aaron Sele (12-3, 2.22 ERA, 121 strikeouts) were named to the NCAA All-District 7 team, as selected by the American Baseball Coaches Association.
The battery mates were also selected as members of the USA team that competed in the World Championships, and the Goodwill Games (held in Seattle).
The Cougars finished the 1990 season with 48 victories, including five in postseason play. The win total was the second most in program history, eclipsed only by the 52 victories by the 1988 squad.
Seniors Jim Connor and Rob Nichols were selected to the second team.

Track and Field
Whitney Evans took home the high jump title at the NCAA West Regional Track & Field Meet.
Evans, a seven-time All-American and senior from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, advanced to her fourth outdoor national championship after winning the high jump by clearing the bar at 5-10 1/2 (1.79m) and edging out Kaylene Wagner from Cal Poly and Sheena Gordon from UCLA on fewer attempts.
Evans became an eight-time All-American when she captured the NCAA high jump title two weeks later at the national championships.
