CHS girls soccer advances at state, and news about Valley high school senior athletes’ college futures could break today

Good Wednesday morning.

We start with some girls’ soccer this morning. Cedarcrest High School’s ladies are moving on to the quarterfinals of the WIAA 2A state soccer playoffs after winning their first-round game last night at home in Duvall.

Sarah Hommas, Piper Parish and Makena Guenther delivered goals for the Red Wolves, who broke a 1-1 halftime tie and rolled to a 3-1 victory over R.A. Long from Longview.

The win as noted sent Cedarcrest to the quarters, where they will meet White River, who blanked Selah 3-0 last night at home in Buckley. The Red Wolves will meet the Hornets likely either Friday or Saturday at WRHS. Information on that game should be announced later today, and we’ll let you know when the game will take place.

Letter of intent signing day today
It’s a big day for some Valley high school senior athletes today. An “early” signing period for sports such as basketball, baseball and softball starts today. This signing period is the first of the school year for senior athletes, and covers the above-mentioned sports along with others such as track and field, volleyball, golf, cross country, lacrosse, swimming, rowing and tennis. Football and soccer athletes are not part of this signing period, which runs through next Wednesday.

We will be sending notes out to both Mount Si and Cedarcrest High Schools this morning to get information, and if we get any, we’ll let you know. We are expecting at least one high-profile Valley athlete signing during this period – that of CHS baseball pitcher Aaron Davenport, who we have been told will be inking his “John Hancock” with NCAA Division I Hawaii.

Football athletes’ early signing period starts on December 20 and runs to December 22, and soccer will not have its signings until next February.
