FOOTBALL

UI sets 2019 schedule

The Idaho football team announced its 2019 schedule, which will include a nonleague home game against Big Sky Conference foe Eastern Washington.

FCS schools are usually limited to 11 regular-season game, but can play 12 on years when 13 Saturdays fall between Labor Day Weekend and Thanksgiving. That will be the case this fall.

So the Vandals set their matchup with the Eagles, who they weren’t scheduled to play this season.

“Our home games have a big impact on the Moscow community, so it was important to us to do our part and find a way for our 12th game to be in the Dome,” Idaho interim athletic director Pete Isakson said. “There was also a void to fill with Eastern Washington not being on our Big Sky schedule this year. We wanted to correct that. Credit to (EWU athletic director) Lynn Hickey and her staff for feeling the same way and wanting to make it happen.”

The Vandals will open the 2019 season at Penn State on Aug. 31.

MEN’S GOLF

Cougs sign Wu

The Washington State men’s golf team signed Tianyu Wu, the Cougars announced Friday.

Wu is a member of the China National Junior Team and represented Team China against Team USA in the Golf Ball Diplomacy Duel at Trump International Golf Club at West Palm Beach, Fla. Wu hails from Howey in the Hills, Fla.

“Tianyu will be a great addition to the program and we are excited to work with him,” Washington State coach Dustin White said.

MEN’S TENNIS

UI signs three

The Idaho men’s tennis signed three on Friday, the Vandals announced, two of whom are walk-ons.

Bruno Casino-Remondo, who signed with the Vandals in 2018, has joined the roster and enrolled for class this spring. He will be eligible to compete this spring.

The recruiting class includes walk-ons Brandon Hodge of Greenville, S.C., and Adam Taylor, of Ennis, Texas — a three-star and two-star recruit, respectively, both of whom will compete for UI in 2020.

“I am excited about this set of additions to the team,” WSU coach Daniel Hangstefer said.

Casino-Remondo joins UI from Cantabria, Spain, where he saw action on the ITF Junior Pro Circuit.
