CHS ladies’ hoops struggles in playoff loss to Burlington-Edison, plus other news on this Tuesday

Good Tuesday morning.

Last night was not a good night for the Cedarcrest High School girls’ basketball team, as they struggled in a Northwest District semifinal playoff loss to Burlington-Edison.

Madi Weir scored eight points, but 26 turnovers, most of those in the first half, doomed the Red Wolves to a 56-23 loss. “We didn’t do much on offense tonight….we shot 20% from the field and had 26 turnovers. In a playoff semifinals game, that will not give you a win,” said CHS coach Brad Knowles by email, as his team missed out on a chance to make it to state.

But the squad has another chance – tomorrow against Liberty. “We need (to) put this game behind us and focus on Liberty on Wednesday and get to state,” Knowles said. The contest is tomorrow at 7:30 p.m. up at Mount Vernon High School.

Other news on this Tuesday:

Baseball
Brady starts first game as collegian: It was a special start to the week yesterday for one Valley college baseball player, as he earned his first ever start in a college game.
University of Puget Sound freshman Jake Brady, he of Snoqualmie and a 2017 Mount Si HS grad, took the field as the starting third baseman yesterday for the Loggers, and in his starting debut, he was 0-4 with a walk, defensive assist and error for UPS as they routed George Fox 9-1 down in Newberg, OR. The win closed out the season-opening weekend for the Loggers, who finished the four-game tournament against the Bruins, Linfield and Pacific-OR at 2-2.

Lacrosse
Snoqualmie’s Smith leads way for UoDallas men in season opener: Sophomore Tyler Smith’s two goals and assist led the University of Dallas’ men in their season-opening game this past Saturday at home in the Metroplex against Huntingdon of Alabama, but it was the visitors from ‘Bama that posted the 10-5 win.

Smith, from Snoqualmie and a 2016 Mount Si HS grad, also recorded a pair of ground balls and a forced turnover on defense for Dallas, who will be back in action this coming weekend against Marian of Wisconsin.

College Sports
Mount Si athletes sign letters of intent: We neglected to mention this to you last week, and we apologize, but seven Mount Si High School senior athletes were recognized by the school last Wednesday at the annual letter of intent signing ceremony.

As expected, football players David Sotelo and Tank Brewster signed their letters of intent, and both will be competing this fall for NCAA Division II schools in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference – Sotelo with Western Oregon and Brewster with Simon Fraser. Additionally, Wildcat teammate Michael Collins signed with Pomona College and baseball player Clayton Waltz signed with the University of Puget Sound and will join Brady with the Loggers next spring. Those signings were in addition to the previously-announced decisions by soccer player Calie Rose, who signed with Pacific Lutheran, football player Jesiah Irish, who signed with Oregon State, and Will Scott, who signed with the Colorado School of Mines to play baseball.

A congrats to all of the seniors. We sent a note to Cedarcrest looking for info from up there, but they did not respond.
