Wednesday news notes…..

Good Wednesday morning. Another fall sports preview is on tap. First, though, some news this morning.

The annual Mount Si High School boys’ basketball golf tournament fundraiser is right around the corner.

The event, a staple of the program for the past almost decade, and which has become the primary fundraising vehicle for the Wildcat team helping them raise money to pay for such things as uniforms, equipment and fees to play in their holiday tournaments every winter break, will take place next Friday, September 9, at Mount Si Golf Course in Snoqualmie. The cost to enter is $125 per player, or $500 per foursome, with the format being a four-person scramble format. The event starts at 8:00 am, with registration starting at 6:30.

The program’s booster club expects this event to sell out, so if you want to play and help support local kids, you’d better get signed up as soon as possible. You can register by going online to Mount Si’s boys’ basketball website, linked in our news links at right, and once on their home page, clicking on the events tab at top, and it will take you to the registration page. Carts are not included in the tournament fee but will be available for rental at the course; you will need to contact the Mount Si Golf Course pro shop, (425) 888-1541, to reserve yours for the event.

Hockey: Local player signs with junior team
Mount Si High School senior Cam Gross, whose hockey exploits we featured here back in the spring, as he and fellow Wildcat senior Owen Roche helped lead their youth hockey squad to the USA Hockey nationals, has found a new hockey home for this coming season.

Gross has hooked up with the Seattle Junior Totems team and will be part of that squad for the 2016-17 campaign. The Totems, based in Mountlake Terrace, are part of the Western States Hockey League, a Tier “II” league in USA Hockey, and their schedule will feature opponents from around the western United States. That schedule starts September 30 with a road game against Vancouver (WA), with their first home game coming in October. The team will be playing games, primarily Fridays-Sundays, from then until March of next year.

For more information about the Totems, their website is here, and we’ll link this in our news links.
