Monday news and notes…’s a leap day!!!

Good Monday morning.

High school spring sports start today and we’ll be getting our preview questionnaires out to spring sports coaches at Mount Si and Cedarcrest High Schools, with the hope we’ll be able to start previews this coming weekend for you here.

With that, we have some action from yesterday for you. We start in Denver, where the Bellevue-based Sudden Impact 17 Storm girls’ volleyball team is going into today’s final day of play at the Colorado Crossroads tournament on a roll. SI comes into today 4-2 on the weekend after winning all three games they played yesterday after a 1-2 start on Saturday.

Sudden Impact is the lone local team with Valley athletes in the tournament – there are three Valleyites on the squad. You of course know that MSHS juniors Katie McCreadie and Courteney Carr are on the team, but the third name that we didn’t know about previously is a name that has popped up on these pages before. Snoqualmie’s Kallin Spiller, who competes for Lakeside School, is also on the roster of the SI squad, who has beaten a pair of Colorado teams along with teams from Florida and Nevada in the event thus far. They meet another Colorado team in their playoff opener this afternoon.

We’ll keep you updated.

Now to the college baseball action.

Lewis-Clark State 9, Oregon Tech 0 (game one, doubleheader): The Warriors blanked the Owls to open two in Lewiston, ID, yesterday, with the help of Fall City’s Gunnar Buhner. Buhner, a junior and 2013 Mount Si HS grad who is the son of M’s legend Jay Buhner, went 1-4 with two RBI’s and also recorded four defensive assists for LCSC as they remained undefeated.

Notre Dame 7, Gonzaga 6: GU closed out their weekend tournament in San Antonio with a loss to the host Irish; senior shortstop Dustin Breshears, from North Bend and a 2011 Mount Si HS grad, went 1-4 with a run scored and recorded two putouts and four assists defensively.

Lewis-Clark State 10, Oregon Tech 6 (game two, doubleheader): Buhner did not play in this nightcap for the Warriors, but another Valleyite did – pitcher Gunnar Swanson, a senior from Duvall and 2011 Cedarcrest HS grad, pitched an inning for LCSC, allowing an unearned run on two hits. He received no decision for the Warriors, who won the contest and swept the twinbill over the visitors from southern Oregon.
