EWU Eagle Eye Links for Monday Morning

Good Morning Eagles fans and happy Monday.  It was a very busy weekend for me, between Navy Reserve drill, my refrigerator breaking down and of course watching the Eagles @ Portland State on Saturday so the blog ended up on the back seat just a bit, but don’t worry, I’ll have a game review up tonight and of course we’ll get into our EWU Eagle Eye Player of the week before tomorrow nights game against Idaho State.  In the meantime, here’s a brief look around the web for Eagles news and stories to get your through your Monday.

First we’ll take a stop at where Jon offers an up close and personal recap of the Weber State @ Northern Colorado game from Saturday night.  Jon also passed along some personal news regarding the passing of his grandmother.  Please keep Jon and his family in your thoughts as you watch the Eagles prepare for the Big Sky Conference tournament and remember that athletics and sports can be a therapeutic and healing escape for a couple hours from life’s challenges.

Continued after the break:

Brian Lynn of Eastern 24/7 offers this piece covering the planned Center for Military Student Success at Eastern Washington University.  As a military veteran and current member of the armed forces, I think this is a great idea for a  program and a worthy cause for EWU and the community to get behind.

Kyle Franko of The Easterner offers this recap of the Eagles women’s teams loss to Portland State this weekend.  “We were terrible defensively,” said head coach Wendy Schuller. “Portland State executed offensively to a tee. They made the extra pass and they knocked shots down.”  The women still have the chance to win the regular season Big Sky Championship.
