CHS girls’ soccer season ends, plus ladies college action from last night

Good Saturday morning. We begin first with news about the official end of the fall sports season for Valley high schools, and that came last night down in Buckley, as the Cedarcrest High School girls’ soccer team was knocked out of the WIAA 2A state playoffs by White River, 2-0. The Red Wolves’ season ends at a strong 14-3-3 while the Hornets remain unbeaten, now at 20-0-0.

Now to the college action, all from the ladies’ front, from last night.

Volleyball
Corban def. Northwest U. 25-17, 24-26, 21-25, 25-23, 15-13 (CCC tournament semis, Salem, OR): The host Corban side rallied from down two sets to one in hard-fought fashion to steal the victory over the Eagles in five and move into the Cascade Collegiate Conference title game tonight down in Salem, OR. Northwest now awaits word from the NAIA national volleyball tournament selection committee about whether they will receive an at-large national tournament berth. That announcement is tomorrow. Freshman Courteney Carr, from Snoqualmie and a 2017 Mount Si HS grad, had three digs in limited action for the Eagles in the contest.

Basketball
Providence (MT) 72, Northwest U. 53: The Eagles’ Montana swing continued last night with another blowout loss, this in Great Falls to the host Argos. Senior Kalee Fowler, she of Duvall and a 2014 Cedarcrest HS grad, scored five points on 2-9 from the floor for NWU in 22 minutes of action. She also collected a rebound in the contest.

Soccer
Concordia-PDX women 3, Chico State 0 (NCAA Division II first round, San Diego): The Cavs broke out of the gate quickly and knocked the California team out of the NCAA Division II tournament with the first-round win in San Diego yesterday afternoon. Junior Karlie Hurley, she of North Bend and a 2015 MSHS alum, started at defensive forward and worked 72 minutes for Concordia with no stats of note reported. The Cavs meet subregional host UC San Diego tomorrow with the winner moving on to meet the winner of the Bellingham subregional – either Western Washington or Sonoma State – in the quarterfinals. The Vikings’ game with Sonoma is today.

Cross Country
Mount Si alum races in regionals in front of family, friends: Washington State University sophomore women’s runner Melissa Hruska, from Snoqualmie and a 2016 Mount Si HS grad, ran yesterday in front of her friends and family at the NCAA Division I women’s Western Regional race, being hosted this year by the University of Washington in Seattle. Hruska had a solid showing too – 106th out of nearly 250 runners who competed, finishing the 6k course at Jefferson Park Golf Course in 21 minutes, 43.7 seconds. WSU finished 15th as a team in the 36-team event which featured many of the Division I schools from the western United States.

We should mention as well we’ll be over at Mount Si High School’s gymnastics team practice this morning doing interviews for our preview of the Wildcats’ season, which will kick off our winter sports preview series, tomorrow here at the Journal.
