If you judge Western Washington University’s men’s soccer team based purely on the stats sheet, you may miss one of its most important players — Uche Ugwoaba. A lineup mainstay who hasn’t been out of the starting 11 since he joined the Vikings in 2012, Ugwoaba has just one goal and one assist in his WWU career. His contributions to the team are more as a creator and defender.

Jay Inslee pass sweeping climate change legislation. Inslee, who says the state has a moral responsibility to act on climate change, has gotten national attention for his efforts. But he’s struggled to persuade some lawmakers in his own state, in part because of a state Senate controlled by a GOP-dominated coalition.
