Also this morning…..

Other news on this Friday:

Volleyball: Nationals play continues for local players, teams
Things are heating up back in Indianapolis as the weekend approaches at the USA Volleyball girls’ national tournament. Three local teams with Valley players are in the thick of the action.

Bellevue-based Northwest Juniors had mixed results yesterday. Their 17’s Black team, with Cedarcrest High School’s Danielle Winston, split matches yesterday, with a win over a California team but fell to an Arizona squad. The team is back in action this morning. The 16’s Blue, however, wasn’t as lucky, with that team, featuring Mount Si’s Jessica Hanners and Lillian Bachand, going 0-3 on their first day of play. NWJ fell to teams from Texas, Florida and California.

It was another winless day, as well, for Bellevue-based Sudden Impact Storm; the U-17 team, with MSHS’ Courteney Carr and Katie McCreadie, fell to teams from Texas, California and Pennsylvania yesterday after opening the tournament Wednesday with three losses. The Storm will seek a win today against a Minnesota team.

Play for all three teams continues through this weekend.

Golf: Snoqualmie boys continue solid play in local tournaments
Snoqualmie’s Drew and Hogan Warford once again got things done on the links yesterday, as both boys fared well at the Washington Junior Golf Association’s district 6 local tournament in Federal Way.

Drew fired a 79 on the par-72 Twin Lakes Golf and Country Club layout to finish in a tie for top spot with fellow competitor Jack Hultquist in the boys’ 14-15 age group, while Hogan carded an 87 to take fourth in the 12-13 age division. Both players have already qualified for the district 6 postseason tourney later this summer.

Two other Valleyites – Snoqualmie’s Jaxon Barlament (boys’ 8-11) and North Bend’s Megan Hodgson (girls’ 16-17 age group) – who have yet to qualify for that event, missed out on earning spots to it yesterday, as neither carded a strong enough score to qualify. Both of them, along with the Warford’s, will compete again next week in the next district 6 local event, in Kent.
