From gymnastics and the hardwood last night, Mount Si gymnasts and boys’ hoopsters and CHS girls’ hoops pick up wins

Mount Si High School’s gymnastics team returned to action following the winter break last night and it looks like they have not missed a beat.

The Wildcats easily handled Inglemoor 160.8-141.0 in the Mount Si home opener last night at MSHS in Snoqualmie. The Wildcats’ Sidney Aspinall scored the all-around win, recording a 34.6. She won two events, taking both the floor (9.35) and bars (8.7). Teammates Anna Steenvoorde and Shelby Johnson also won events, giving Mount Si the individual event sweep. Steenvoorde’s 8.9 earned her top spot on the beam, while Johnson’s 9.3 scored her the win in the vault.

The Wildcats are at Liberty High School tomorrow night taking on Woodinville. The meet starts at 7:00 p.m.

From hoops last night:

Red Wolve girls take command early, defeat King’s: The Cedarcrest High School girls’ hoopsters broke out to a 12-1 lead after one, and held on for a 40-30 win over the King’s Knights in Seattle last night in a Cascade Conference battle. Jaylin Yowell scored 11 points to lead the Red Wolves. Still, though, coach Brad Knowles sees room for improvement. “It was a good win for us, but we need to do better offensively as we get closer to the playoffs,” he said by email to the SVSJ. CHS hosts Archbishop Murphy Friday, and you can see a preview of that matchup here Friday morning in the Journal.

Mount Si boys survive scare, score key league road win in OT: Newport outscored Mount Si High School’s boys 22-13 in the final frame to force overtime last night at Newport High School in Bellevue, but Mount Si returned the favor in the extra session, outscoring the Knights in that frame 13-4 and rolling to a big 67-58 win over Newport that moves them into the top six overall in the Kingco 4A standings, at 3-4 in league and 4-7 overall and with a win over the third-place Knights, now 5-2 in league, 7-4 overall. Jabe Mullins had a game-high 34 points to lead the Wildcats while Bijon Sidhu added 15. The Wildcats, with the win, set up a huge game Friday with the team they are tied with in league, Woodinville, as they look for a season sweep; Mount Si beat Woodinville last month at WHS. Game time is 8:15 and we’ll have a preview here Friday.

Fowler struggles in Northwest loss: From the colleges, it was not a good night for Red Wolve alum Kalee Fowler, as the Northwest U. senior women’s hoopster, from Duvall, was held to just 3-10 from the floor for eight points as the Eagles fell in the first leg of their I-5 rivalry set with Evergreen State 74-71 last night on the Geoducks’ floor down in Olympia. Fowler had two rebounds, two steals and an assist for NWU, who falls to 6-12 on the season, 3-6 in league play in the NAIA’s Cascade Collegiate Conference.
