College wrapup from this past weekend

Here is the wrapup from this past weekend for Valley college athletes, and there were a number of them in action in several different sports.

-In college hoops action, on the women’s side, it was a nice night for Humboldt State junior Caitie Richards. The 2009 Mount Si grad from Snoqualmie was 6-8 from the floor, 3-4 from three-point land, and scored 15 points, but it was not enough for her ‘Jacks team as they fell in conference action Saturday night to Chico State 90-67. On the men’s side, Portland fell to Loyola Marymount down in Los Angeles Saturday night in a WCC contest, 62-59. Pilot sophomore Tanner Riley, 2010 Mount Si grad from North Bend, played seven minutes off the bench and chipped in three points. Also, PLU defeated Willamette 89-78, but freshman Andrew Alness did not see action for the Lutes. Alness is a 2011 Cedarcrest HS grad from Duvall.

-Fall City product Cami Guyer made her college gymnastics debut last Friday for San Jose State University, and it proved to be a strong one. Guyer, a 2011 Mount Si HS grad, competed on the vault event at the Spartans’ meet against Sacramento State and scored a 9.775, tying her for third best overall in that event. It proved not to be enough in the end, though, as SJSU fell 194.750-193.000.

-Several Valley athletes saw action in indoor track over this past weekend. At the UW indoor meet in Seattle on Saturday, Huskies redshirt freshman Georgia Reynolds, a 2010 Mount Si grad from North Bend, finished 10th in the women’s pole vault, leaping just over 12 feet. In Boise at the Boise State meet, also Saturday, Bronco freshman Cara Strodel, a 2011 Cedarcrest grad from Duvall, took 10th in the women’s 3000m, clocking 10 minutes, 50.72 seconds.

Saturday in Pullman at the WSU indoor meet, Idaho redshirt freshman Molly Meyers, a 2010 Mount Si grad from North Bend, competed in two events. Meyers took seventh in the women’s shot put with a throw of 37’2 ¼”, then took 10th in the weight throw with a throw of 42’2 ¼”.

Also on Saturday, in Wooster, OH, Ohio Wesleyan’s men’s distance medley relay team, which included freshman Josh Denison, a 2011 CHS grad from Duvall, took second in that race, with a time of 10:55.32, and on Sunday, Lipscomb’s “C” women’s distance medley relay squad, with sophomore Missy Dowd, a 2010 Red Wolves alum also from Duvall, finished fourth in that race in a meet hosted by Tennessee State University. Lipscomb is located in Nashville, TN.

-And this from football: Eastern Washington senior defensive tackle Charles “Dexter” Moetului, a 2007 grad of Mount Si from North Bend, recently earned his team’s Defensive Player of the Year award, in voting by his teammates at the program’s recent season-ending banquet, according to the school. Moetului played a total of 40 games in his career, with many of his successes coming this past season, such as a career-high 10 tackles in a game against Cal-Poly and the game-saving tackle in a win over Weber State which sparked a win streak that had the potential of saving the Eagles’ season. Moetului is most remembered by Mount Si fans for scoring the game-winning touchdown in overtime of a 2006 game against Newport which helped the Wildcats make the state playoffs that season.
