Q&A With Junior Nick Ison
Feb. 22, 2006
PULLMAN, Wash. - Transferring to WSU after two years at Salt Lake Community College, right-handed hurler Nick Ison is ready to help the Cougars' 2006 effort to return to prominence in the Pac-10. With a few weeks of baseball in the books, Ison took the time this week to chat with the Cougar Sports Information Department about his new experience at WSU.
While the team started 6-2 Ison quietly led with a 2-0 record, surrendering only 4 hits and a 0.82 earned run average in 11 innings of work.
