Rhinehart’s deliver for Woody against Mount Si softball, plus the rest of this morning’s diamond cuts

Good Saturday morning. Softball on the brain today to start our Saturday look.

A dominant pitching performance by a pair of the Rhinehart clan led Woodinville to a blowout win over Mount Si’s softball team last night.

Lauryn and Rachel Rhineheart combined on a two-hitter, leading the Falcons to a 9-0 win over the Wildcats in a Mount Si home game played at Woodinville High School. The pair of Rhinehart’s combined for a walk and 11 strikeouts, and the Grover sisters, Paige and Charlotte, both doubled aiding the Falcon cause.

Kara Link and Abby Gronewald had a hit each for the Wildcats as they dropped to 3-7 in Kingco 4A play, 5-8 overall. They host Newport Tuesday at Centennial Fields in Snoqualmie, weather permitting. Game time is 4:00 p.m.

Mount Si JV also routed by Falcons: Linsy Prollo was 2-3 with a double and three RBI’s for the Falcons as they cruised to a 15-4 win over the Wildcat JV at Woodinville High School. Megan Davidson was 1-3 with a walk, two runs scored and two RBI’s for the Falcons, while for Mount Si, Megan Underbrink led the way, going 2-2 with a run scored. Kaitlin Ray and Grace Lord also had a double each for the Wildcats, who are home on Tuesday hosting Newport. Game time at Centennial Fields in Snoqualme, weather and field conditions permitting, is at 4:00 p.m.

College
Lynchburg rebounds from opening round loss to remain alive in conference tourney: The college career of Mount Si HS grad Lauren Smith will continue for another day as LC moved into today’s action at the Old Dominion Athletic Conference tournament in Salem, VA. They beat Randolph College 5-1 in a loser-out game last night, with Smith, from Snoqualmie and a senior with the Hornets, going 1-2 with a run scored and three putouts in left field defensively for LC. The 2013 Mount Si HS grad did not play in the opener, as Lynchburg fell in a 1-0 heartbreaker to Emory & Henry. E&H scored the game’s lone run in the first, and the Hornet bats could not get much going the rest of the way. Lynchburg plays later today in another loser-out game.
