More Friday news….

Nuggets on this Friday:

Karalus faces M’s prospects: North Bend’s Reece Karalus took his best shot at prospects from his hometown Seattle Mariners last night on the hill for his minor league baseball team, the Tampa Bay Rays-affiliated Bowling Green Hot Rods of Kentucky.

Karalus, a 2012 Mount Si High School grad, and the Hot Rods played a Midwest “A” League game at home in Kentucky against the Clinton Lumber Kings from Iowa, who are the Mariners’ affiliate in that league. The Valleyite allowed two runs, both earned, on three hits in three innings of relief work, walking two and striking out three, as BG fell to Clinton 6-3. The leading hitter on the night for the Lumber Kings was Chris Mariscal, who went 2-4 with a double and RBI and saw his average bump up to .267. Karalus received no decision for his pitching efforts.

The Hot Rods dropped to 10-11 on the season and host Kane County from suburban Chicago, IL, tonight to start a weekend series. The Cougars are affiliated with the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Red Wolves girls score win: Cedarcrest’s girls’ golf team made short work of visiting Cedar Park Christian at home in Carnation yesterday on the strength of another solid round from top golfer Casey Spurr. More from the Everett Herald.

College-CWU surprised by host St. Martin’s in first round at GNAC tourney: The Wildcats, top seed in the conference tournament in Lacey, were held to just three hits – two by Central’s Valley duo – in a 2-0 opening round loss yesterday to the Saints. North Bend sophomore Celine Fowler and Duvall junior Kaliyn Campbell each had a hit for Central. Fowler is a 2014 Mount Si HS grad and Campbell is a 2013 Cedarcrest HS grad. They play a loser-out contest today against Concordia-Portland.

Sicilia Fazio went 2-3 with a run scored to pace CPC (0-11 Cascade, 0-12 overall). Granite is three games back of league-leading Cedarcrest.

High School-Bellevue 16, Bellevue Christian 11: The Kingco 3A squad had hits from all except one player as they held off visiting BCS in a nonleague barnburner.
