Weekend wrap from the diamond and the links…..

Good Monday morning. Athlete of the Week on deck, but first the weekend wrap.

Baseball
Sacramento State 5, Northern Colorado 0: Sacto blanked the Bears despite just getting two hits to close out their weekend set at home in northern California. Senior Evan Johnson, from Snoqualmie and a 2014 MSHS grad, went 0-4 for UNCo in the game.

Grays Harbor 10, Green River 2 (game one, doubleheader): GH rolled over the host Gators in the first of two in Kent. Sophomore Nick Bowersock, he of Duvall and a 2014 Cedarcrest HS grad, went 2-5 with a run scored for Green River, and he also started on the mound for the Gators, allowing three runs on five hits in 4 1/3 innings, walking two and striking out two, taking the loss.

George Fox 15, Puget Sound 9: The Bruins closed out the regular season handing the Loggers a home loss in their final game of 2018. Freshman Jake Brady, from Snoqualmie and a 2017 MSHS grad, was 0-1 with an RBI for UPS in the contest. He finishes the season going 1-18 (.167) in limited action this spring, with two RBI’s for a Logger team that will miss the postseason after going 15-20 this spring, 9-15 in NCAA Division III’s Northwest Conference.

Whitman rained out: The Blues’ final regular season tilt, at Linfield, got rained out with it being made up this afternoon down in McMinnville, OR. As noted yesterday, if the Blues win, they’ll advance to the NWC playoffs and give local product Collin Anderson some more opportunities to pitch; he is a sophomore for Whitman and is from North Bend. Anderson has pitched primarily out of the Blues’ bullpen this season, most recently seeing action Saturday during a doubleheader between these two teams.

Gonzaga 7, Pacific-CA 1: Valleyite Dustin Breshears aided a Bulldog win that gave them a series win over the Tigers down in Stockton, CA. Breshears, from North Bend and a 2014 MSHS alum, went 2-4 with two RBI’s as GU took two of three on the weekend over Pacific.

Grays Harbor 3, Green River 1 (game two, doubleheader): GH won the nightcap of their twinbill with the Gators in Kent to sweep the pair. Bowersock went 0-1 for GRCC.

Golf
North Bend’s Jacobson finds home on links at Whitman: Mount Si grad Jimmy Jacobson signed to play soccer for Whitman College in Walla Walla two years ago. But injuries derailed his soccer career, so he decided to take up the other sport he had success with while a Wildcat – golf. Looks as if that decision is paying off.

Jacobson, a sophomore from North Bend, led Whitman at the Willamette Spring Thaw tournament that took place this weekend down in Bend, OR. Jacobson finished in a tie for eighth overall in the tournament carding rounds of 78 and 76 Saturday and yesterday for a 10 over-par 154 on the par 72 Pronghorn Resort layout. Whitman finished sixth as a team in the competition, which featured all the teams from the NCAA Division III Northwest Conference, including Pacific Lutheran. However, the three Valleyites competing for the Lutes, Jacobson’s former Mount Si teammates Mitch Dover, Alex Nelson and Jordan Lau, did not compete in this weekend’s tournament.

This coming weekend, on the 21st and 22nd, both the Lutes and Blues will be in the conference tournament being hosted by PLU in Tacoma. We’ll keep you posted on how things go for both teams.
