Washington women to throw out first pitch for Mariners


One day after their victory, the University of Washington's women's golf team took its NCAA Championship trophy back to campus on Thursday to celebrate with the student body in Seattle.

The team also received plaudits from two of Seattle's professional franchises, earning Twitter shoutouts from both the NFL's Seahawks and MLB's Mariners, with the latter inviting the Huskies to throw out the first pitch at Safeco Field on Sunday:

The Seahawks actually played on the UW campus at Husky Stadium from 2000-2001 after leaving the Kingdome and while waiting for Century Link Field to be constructed.
