Tuesday news items……

Good Tuesday morning, everyone.

Couple of items this morning for you. We start with volleyball.

Mid-pack finish for Bellevue team with three local athletes in Denver tournament
Bellevue’s Sudden Impact Storm U17 girls’ volleyball team, featuring three players from the upper Valley, took 43rd out of 80 teams yesterday in the U17 “USA” division at the Colorado Crossroads tournament in Denver. SIVBC split two playoff games yesterday, beating a Colorado team but falling to one from Arkansas. They did not earn a berth to the USAVB national tournament this summer (the Colorado event was a regional qualifying tournament).

Locals Kallin Spiller, Courteney Carr and Katie McCreadie play for the Storm. Carr and McCreadie attend Mount Si High School, while Spiller attends Lakeside School.

UPS women miss out on NCAA tournament
The University of Puget Sound’s women’s basketball season is over after the team missed out on qualifying for the NCAA Division III women’s basketball tournament yesterday. The Loggers finished the season 19-8, falling to conference tournament champion George Fox in the title game this past weekend. GFU was the lone team to earn a berth to the 64-team field.

The end of the season marks the end of the freshman campaign collegiately for Snoqualmie’s Elizabeth Prewitt, and it proved to be a great one, as hard work paid off down the stretch with several starts in key games late in the season. The 2015 Mount Si HS grad finished the season averaging seven points and three rebounds a contest in 21 minutes of play, with a season-high of 19 points in a road game January 23 at Whitworth in Spokane, won by the Loggers. Good stuff, and we look for more from Prewitt as her college career continues.
