Mount Si football wins, CHS routed at home, plus college action as we start another Northwest weekend

Good Saturday morning. We have a major story developing this morning concerning Cedarcrest High School and its potential future in the Cascade Conference we’ll get to in a bit. We start with a wrapup on the gridiron, however, from last night.

Mount Si QB Cale Millen threw four touchdown passes in the first half – two to receiver Jonny Barrett – and the Wildcats took a 35-16 halftime lead over Sedro-Woolley, cruising to a 42-23 win last night over the 2A’s Cubs in a non-conference clash up in the Skagit Valley.

Millen also hooked up with Jesiah Irish and Andrew Mostofi for scores in that big first half for Mount Si, as they moved to 3-2 on the season in advance of the return to Kingco 4A play next Friday night at Issaquah. Game time at Issaquah High School is 7:00.

Landrum does the damage for Granite in rout of Cedarcrest: In our preview yesterday, we said to look for Granite Falls QB Camden Landrum to do much of the offensive damage for the Tigers last night against Cedarcrest, and he did just that, guiding Granite to a rout of the Red Wolves in Duvall. More from the Everett Herald. CHS drops to 0-5 on the season.

College action from yesterday.

Volleyball
Double-double for Carr in Northwest sweep: Freshman Courteney Carr had 10 digs and 10 assists, pacing Northwest University’s women’s volleyball team to a home sweep of Portland’s Multnomah University last night in Cascade Collegiate Conference action in Kirkland. Scores were 25-22, 25-21, 25-11 as the Eagles handled the visiting Lions. Carr, a 2017 graduate of Mount Si High School from Snoqualmie, also had two aces for Northwest as they moved to 12-5 on the season, 6-3 in league play. The conference is part of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).

Soccer
Idaho women fall on road: The Vandals fell on the road for the first time in Big Sky Conference (NCAA Division I) play yesterday, dropping a 3-1 decision to Southern Utah down in Cedar City, UT. Junior Claire Johnson, from Snoqualmie and a 2015 Mount Si HS grad, had one shot on goal recorded in 77 minutes of action for Idaho; she did not score a goal in the contest for the Vandals, who dropped to 4-6-2 on the season and are winless in conference play at 0-2-1.

Cross Country
Valleyite races in shadow of “Golden Dome”: Sophomore Melissa Hruska, from Snoqualmie and a 2016 Mount Si HS grad, took 124th yesterday in the 5k women’s race at a meet hosted by Notre Dame back in South Bend, IN. Hruska, running for Washington State, clocked 18 minutes, 24.8 seconds.

CHS alum leads Pilot men in Oregon meet: Redshirt junior Logan Orndorf, a 2014 Cedarcrest HS grad from Duvall, led the University of Portland men at the Dellinger Invitational race down in Springfield, OR, yesterday. Orndorf finished 28th overall in the 8k run, clocking 24:09.9 at the meet hosted by the University of Oregon. Also at the Dellinger event, UW women’s freshman Hannah Waskom, from Snoqualmie and a 2017 MSHS alum, finished 81st, clocking 21:15.4 over the 6k women’s course.

Hockey
Totems win: In Western States Hockey League action last night in Mountlake Terrace, the Seattle Junior Totems posted a 5-4 win over the visiting Bellingham Blazers in an I-5 rivalry game. The two teams meet again tonight. Snoqualmie’s Cam Gross, a 2017 MSHS grad, saw action for Seattle in the contest, with no stats of note reported.
