Mount Si boys’ soccer season over with state playoff loss, plus college news on this Wednesday

Mount Si High School’s boys’ soccer season came to an end last night in the first round of the WIAA 4A state high school playoffs.

The Wildcats started out strong but could not close the deal as Sumner scored the game-winning goal in the second half for the 2-1 win. Mount Si ended the season 11-6-3. Stats were not available, but the Tacoma News-Tribune has a recap on what happened here.

College Baseball
Gonzaga 3, Washington State 2 (13): GU needed extras to take the non-conference clash last night in Pullman over the Cougars. The two teams’ Valley players both played in the contest, with the Bulldogs’ Carson Breshears going 0-4 and the Cougars’ Isaac Mullins pitching two innings of relief, allowing a run on three hits, walking one and striking out two. Both players are from North Bend and are Mount Si High School grads, Breshears in 2014 and Mullins the following year in 2015.

Northern Colorado 18, Air Force 11: The Bears got ready for their upcoming conference tournament with a bang, scoring eight runs in the ninth for the road win yesterday over the Falcons in Colorado Springs in a non-conference clash. Senior Evan Johnson, he of Snoqualmie and a 2014 Mount Si HS grad, went 1-5 with two runs scored and an RBI for UNCo.

Valley college hoopster earns prestigious award: University of Puget Sound junior Elizabeth Prewitt, from Snoqualmie and a 2015 Mount Si High School grad who plays for the Loggers’ women’s basketball team, was this week recognized by her college for her leadership in that program.

The university named her as a recipient of the Richard Ulrich Leadership Award, given annually to one men’s and one women’s athlete at the school. The athletes winning this award, which started in the 2002-03 school year, are recognized for their leadership and commitment to their respective sports programs and to the athletics program as a whole at the Tacoma campus, which is a member of the NCAA Division III Northwest Conference. The men’s athlete who won the award this year is football player Max Washam.

Prewitt has been a focal presence for her three seasons with UPS, this past season averaging 13 points a contest for the Loggers, who finished 12-13 on the campaign.

The award is named in honor of Richard “Dick” Ulrich, who spent nearly 20 years as the school’s athletic director before retiring in 2003.

We offer our congrats to Prewitt on this recognition.
