The No. 33-ranked Bruins enter the tournament with an overall record of 12-4 on the season. The Bruins face the Pioneers of Lewis & Clark (11-5) Saturday, April 21 at 2 pm.

Whitman (14-7) earned the No. 1 seed and will host the tournament facing off against the No. 4-seed Pacific University (9-6).

George Fox recently had three players named to the All-NWC Team and Spencer Watanabe and Will Leach swept the top awards in the conference. Watanabe was named NWC Player of the Year, while Leach was named NWC Freshman of the Year. Watanabe and Leach were named first-team selections, while Alex Namba grabbed a second-team selection.

The Bruins are looking for a bit of revenge against the Pios, as the last time they met Lewis & Clark came away with a 7-2 victory. The last time the Bruins beat the Pios dates back to the 2015 season when the Bruins secured a 5-4 victory.
