Mooring Mast Spring Sports Pick'em: May 3, 2013

By Nathan Shoup, Sports Editor

He certainly made his move at the right time.
   
After chasing the pack the entire spring, Arvid Isaksen grabbed the lead for the first time last week and hung on this week to claim the first spring sports pick ‘em title.
   

Isaksen was the model of consistency this spring, never getting more than two games over .500. Fortunately for him, neither did anyone else in the league.
   
The road to the top wasn’t easy for Isaksen though. He picked the softball team to finish second in the Northwest Conference tournament two weeks ago, and they did, but he is not a popular man with the softball team.
   
“They are still giving me a hard time,” Isaksen said. “Even the coach [Erin Van Nostrand]said something to me.”
   
Oh, the price of being a champion. Congratulations Arvid.
