Thursday news notes: Mount Si grads Kimborowicz, Stanton compete in pro sports contests

Good Thursday morning. Very light morning this morning due to the holiday.

A couple of items though, and we first hit the diamond, where Mount Si High School grad Josh Kimborowicz once again delivered on the hill in independent baseball last night.

“Kimbo”, a 2010 MSHS alum from North Bend, pitched seven innings of two-hit ball, walking two and striking out six, as his River City Rascals needed 10 innings to win 2-0 over the Schaumburg Boomers in a Frontier League game in Schaumburg, IL, outside of Chicago, last night. Kimborowicz received no decision as River City scored both of their runs in the 10th – the two teams finished the regulation nine frames in a scoreless tie.

River City with the win moved into a tie for first place with Southern Illinois, the team Kimborowicz played for back in 2016 and did very well with – so well that the Los Angeles Dodgers signed him for the second half of the minor league season that year with their rookie-league team in Ogden, UT.

Kimborowicz should get his next start early next week.

Also this morning:

Stanton plays on the Fourth: North Bend’s Nikki Stanton and her Chicago Red Stars National Women’s Soccer League squad hit the field last night down in Cary, NC, for a game against the host North Carolina Courage. Carolina won it 4-1 and the 2008 MSHS grad came off the bench for Chicago late in the game. She played 22 minutes with no stats of note. Chicago heads to New York/New Jersey on Saturday for a date with Sky Blue FC in Stanton’s return there for the first time since SBFC traded her this past offseason as part of a multi-player trade, the first time we can remember a Valley athlete in pro athletics ever being dealt. Game is at 4:00 and is on the go90 app.
