From the mat and the college hardwood on this Sunday……

Good Sunday morning for you.

From the mat to start off and we have some Cedarcrest High School wrestling news for you. The Red Wolves competed in yesterday’s Cascade Conference postseason tournament at Granite Falls High School. We’ll work to get you some results from that, but we have in the meantime a quick rundown from another recent tournament.

Several Red Wolves won their weight classes at the King of the Mountain event, held January 14 at Darrington High School up in Snohomish County. Jimmy Yepez (132 lbs.), Billy Hinzman (126), Jaren Stevenson (182), Fredrick Reid (152) and Michael Norris (138) all won their brackets, with Norris, Stevenson and Hinzman taking their crowns with pins in their title matches, and Reid and Yepez delivering their titles in decision wins over their title foes. In all, CHS took on a number of 1A and 2A teams in the event, including Cascade Conference rivals Sultan and South Whidbey.

Other Red Wolves also competed, with Garrett Nelson (285) finishing as runner-up in his weight class, Preston Goodwin (152) taking third in his bracket, and Austin Link (120), Caleb Lay (170) amd Alan Horna (145) all taking fourth in theirs. Nico Parmo (160) rounded out the Cedarcrest representation; he did not place in his weight class after being eliminated early on.
Cedarcrest’s sub-regionals will be next weekend, and hosted by the Red Wolves in Duvall.

Now to some college hoops from last night.

Carroll-MT men 71, Great Falls 32: Duvall’s Zach Taylor scored a game-high 17 points pacing Carroll to another win, this one over their Frontier Conference I-15 rival Argos in Great Falls, MT. Taylor, a senior and 2013 Cedarcrest High School grad, was 6-11 from the floor with two three pointers, and also collected three rebounds and six steals as the Saints moved into sole possession of first place in the conference with the victory. Carroll is 9-1 in league, 19-3 overall. They had been tied with Montana Western for that top spot but with a head-to-head advantage, but MW fell in overtime last night to Lewis-Clark State, knocking them out of that tie for the top spot.

Puget Sound women 96, Linfield 77: Down in McMinnville, OR, the Loggers finished up their weekend Northwest Conference (NCAA Division III) jaunt to the Willamette Valley with a sweep, beating the host Wildcats after beating George Fox on Friday in nearby Newberg. Sophomore Elizabeth Prewitt, from Snoqualmie and a 2015 Mount Si HS grad, paced UPS with 22 points on 9-18 from the floor, and also had four rebounds and assists each for the Loggers, who stayed unbeaten in conference play at 10-0 and are now 18-1 overall.

Eastern Oregon 75, Northwest U. women 46: In LaGrande, OR, the host Mountaineers outscored the visiting Eagles 39-15 in the middle two frames to pull away for the home win that dropped NWU to 10-15 overall, 5-10 in Cascade Collegiate Conference play. In 12 minutes of action off the bench, Eagle junior Kalee Fowler, she of Duvall and a 2014 Cedarcrest HS alum, scored a point (on 1-2 from the foul line; she was 0-5 from the floor), collected an assist and also recorded a steal.

Chapman 70, Cal Lutheran women 58: CLU dropped into a three-way tie for top spot in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference with Chapman and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps after falling on the road to the Panthers in Orange, CA. All three teams are now 7-2 in league play, with CLU 11-7 overall. Senior Katy Lindor, from Snoqualmie and a 2013 Mount Si HS alum, collected four rebounds and was 0-2 from the floor shooting-wise for no points scored in 10 minutes off the bench for the visiting Regals.
