From volleyball and the water as well to close out our Sunday package……

Two other items of note today:

Rowing: Mount Si alum competes in Apple Cup women’s clash
Washington State University sophomore women’s rower Sara Brevick, from Fall City and a 2014 Mount Si HS grad, was aboard the Cougar third varsity eight boat for their Apple Cup rivalry clash with the University of Washington on the Snake River yesterday near Clarkston. The Huskies dominated in the matchup, beating the Cougar boat by almost 40 seconds. Final times were 7:13.80 for the UW crew and 7:52.12 for the WSU boat.

A second Mount Si grad, Madison Mariani, a sophomore from Snoqualmie, is also on the UW squad, but she did not participate in any of the races yesterday.

WSU and UW will compete in the Pac-12 meet on Mother’s Day down at Gold River, CA, near Sacramento.

Volleyball: Local teams to miss out on national berths at Reno event
None of the five local girls’ club volleyball teams with Valley-connected players competing at this weekend’s Far Westerns qualifier tournament in Reno will be in position to land national berths this weekend, after results yesterday.

The best day of the local group came from Mercer Island-based Island Thunder’s 16’s. This team, with MSHS varsity players Bellah Gogan and Karlie Stewart, won their two matches yesterday, beating teams from California and Arizona. They now have the only record of any of the teams that is above .500 on the weekend, and will wrap up play today.

Also of note yesterday, Bellevue’s Sudden Impact Thunder 16’s, with Wildcat Harper Click, won a pair of matches, and their 17’s counterparts the Storm, featuring ex-‘Cat Patience O’Neal, scored a win over a team from suburban Phoenix to get themselves into the win column as well. KJ’s 15’s, with Mount Si’s Victoria BearBow, split four matches yesterday with one of the wins coming against a team from Idaho.

Play wraps up today, with the highest level playoff being the KJ’s in their Bronze division playoff in the U15 Open division. Everyone else is either in a so-called “Flight 1” or “Flight 2” playoff, with none of the teams anticipated to get a national tournament berth to the USA Volleyball Nationals later this spring.

We’ll have a full wrap for you tomorrow.
