News and notes on this Wednesday: Mount Si swimming and golf open seasons, plus news on CHS volleyball and girls’ soccer

Good Wednesday morning. We’ll have Mount Si volleyball and soccer soon, but we lead things off this morning with a look at the Wildcat girls’ swim team, which has started its season with two meets.

Yesterday, scarlet and gray and visiting North Creek finished their meet, at the Club at Snoqualmie Ridge in Snoqualmie, in an 84-84 tie. Mount Si was strong in most events, most notably the 50 yard freestyle, where the Wildcats recorded a top three sweep. Amelia Moulton won the race, clocking 29.50 seconds, .23 seconds better than teammate – and runner-up – Annalise Brestin. Caroline Smith rounded it out in third, clocking 29.96 seconds. Mount Si also had a top three sweep in the 100 yard backstroke, with Theodora McCabe winning that event in a time of 1:08.03. Tatum Dalgleish finished 10 seconds behind in second place, followed by Moulton in third (1:21.64).

The Wildcats’ 400 yard freestyle relay team of Brestin, Dalgleish, Smith and Elizabeth Bourgault won that race as well, clocking 4:27.85 and handily beating the Jaguars’ runner-up finishing team by 33 seconds. Additionally, Mount Si’s 200 yard medley relay squad of Dalgleish, Crumb, McCabe and Smith finished a strong second, five seconds behind the winning NC team in that race.

Last Thursday, the Wildcats opened the season, also at home on the Ridge, with a 119-50 loss to Skyline. McCabe won the 200 yard individual medley, clocking 2:23.92 for the only Mount Si individual event win of the meet. The Wildcat 200 yard medley crew, with Crumb, Bourgault, McCabe and Campbell Brenne, gave Skyline all they could handle in another strong second place effort. They clocked 2:00.95, just two seconds behind the winning Spartan four-girl unit.

McCabe also finished a solid second in the 50 yard freestyle (27.44), just .31 seconds behind winner Missy Kappes from Skyline, and Mount Si’s 200 yard freestyle crew of Brenne, Dalgleish, Moulton and McCabe also finished second in their race, clocking 1:56.36, six seconds behind the winning Spartan unit.

Mount Si is home tomorrow hosting Newport at 3:00 p.m. Meets are held at the Club at Snoqualmie Ridge golf course’s pool.

Also this morning:

Soccer: CHS handles Sultan
The Red Wolve girls’ soccer team opener Cascade Conference play last night in Sultan with a 5-0 road win over the Turks. Sarah Hommas scored twice and also added two assists, and Abby McKenzie, Piper Parish and Maia Rezoski also scored goals in the contets. McKenzie, Kate Hickox and Taylor Burton also had assists, as CHS broke out quickly with two goals in a four-minute span in the first half, followed by another pair within four minutes in the second half. Dakota Barnes got the shutout in goal as the entire team got a chance to play significant minutes. Red Wolves coach Alex Hickox, in a note on his team’s Facebook page, had this message for fans – come on out to see them play. “This is a fun bunch to watch,” he wrote.

Meanwhile, the Red Wolves’ JV, instead of playing Sultan as the Turks do not have a JV team at this time, went to Bellevue to meet the Wolverines last night in a non-conference game. Bellevue won 3-0, but the team, in a note on Facebook, said it still was pleased to get the opportunity to play the quality competition.

Cedarcrest’s C-team on Monday fell 1-0 at Kamiak in another non-conference match. They play at home tonight against Mariner at 5:00 p.m., while the Red Wolves’ varsity and JV host Archbishop Murphy tomorrow, with the JV’s starting at 5:00 followed by the varsity at 7:00. All home matches are at Cedarcrest High School’s stadium in Duvall, 29000 NE 150th St.

Golf: Wildcats open season with win
Mount Si High School’s boys’ golf team got its season underway yesterday after having two matches postponed due to poor air quality last week.

The Wildcats at home defeated Newport, 186-196 (lower score wins) at Mount Si Golf Course in Snoqualmie. Jack Miller and Robbie Nielsen fired rounds of 36 to pace the Wildcats, who play Issaquah on Monday of next week at Snoqualmie Falls Golf Course in Fall City, making up one of those two smoked-out matches.

Volleyball: Red Wolves swept in Cascade opener
Cedarcrest High School’s volleyball team was swept at home in Duvall last night in their Cascade Conference opener by Archbishop Murphy, 25-17, 25-10, 25-16. Kami Leslie led the Red Wolves with three kills and 16 assists, while Taeler Gerde added six kills and two aces to the Cedarcrest efforts. Nat Hayward paced Murphy, with seven kills and six aces, and Claire Doud added eight kills and two aces to the Wildcat performance. CHS is at Sultan tomorrow night, for a 7:00 first serve at Sultan High School, looking for their first win. The loss last night dropped the Red Wolves to 0-2 to start the season.
