College wrap from last night

Good Sunday morning. Gymnastics soon, but we start with some college action from last night, first from the ladies’ hardwood.

It was a tight one, but a Valleyite helped aid her team to a win last night.

Junior Elizabeth Prewitt’s 15 points paced the University of Puget Sound’s women’s hoopsters to a come-from-behind 72-67 win over in Spokane last night over host Whitworth. Prewitt, from Snoqualmie and a 2015 Mount Si High School grad, was 5-8 from the floor and was perfect from the foul line, 5-5 there, to push the Loggers to 9-10 overall on the season, 4-6 in conference play in the NCAA Division III Northwest Conference. The Valleyite also had four rebounds and three assists to pace UPS, who moved into a tie for fifth overall in conference with the win, tied with Linfield in that fifth-place spot. Puget Sound hosts Willamette Friday at 6:00, and you can see that game live on NWC Digital, at right in our news links or on set-top boxes such as Roku and Amazon Fire.

Also from the ladies’ hardwood:

Fowler guides Northwest U. to come-from-behind win: Duvall’s Kalee Fowler scored 14 points as Northwest U.’s women went on a late surge to rally for a 78-73 home win last night in Kirkland over the visitors from Corban down in Salem, OR. Fowler, a senior and 2014 Cedarcrest HS alum, was 6-15 from the floor and also recorded seven rebounds and an assist to pace NWU, who moves to 7-15 overall, 4-9 in Cascade Collegiate Conference (NAIA) play.

Skagit ekes out win: Skagit Valley held off division-leading Everett CC 63-61 in an I-5 rivalry clash in Everett to hand EvCC their first league loss of the season. Freshman Mieke Van Ess, she of Duvall and a 2017 CHS’er, had three points and four rebounds in 10 minutes of work off the bench for Skagit, who is now tied for third in the Northwest Athletic Conference (community colleges) North Division, at 3-2 in divisional play, 9-11 overall.

Track & Field
Valleyites race at UW meet: A pair of Valleyites were set to take to the track for distance races at the University of Washington Invitational in Seattle yesterday, but only one ran.

UW freshman Hannah Waskom, from Snoqualmie and a 2016 Mount Si HS alum. finished 10th in her women’s heat, clocking 5:02.18 at the meet, held inside the Dempsey complex next to Husky Stadium. Duvall’s Logan Orndorf, who was scheduled to compete in the men’s mile for the University of Portland, where he is a senior this spring, did not make the start of his race.
