Ladies first to start the weekend……

Good Saturday morning. Football wrap from Mount Si’s big win last night on deck, but we have a few notes from college action yesterday, as several young women from our community competed in three different sports on the college level.

Soccer
Northern Colorado 3, Idaho 0: The Bears handled the visiting Vandals at home in Greeley, CO, under the lights last night, handing Idaho their first Big Sky loss of the 2018 season. Senior defender Claire Johnson, from Snoqualmie and a 2015 Mount Si HS alum, started and worked 68 minutes for Idaho with no stats of note reported.

Sacramento State 3, Idaho State 0: The Hornets blanked the visiting Bengals at home down in Sacramento last night. Sophomore Rachel Brownell, she of Fall City and a 2017 MSHS’er, played 36 minutes of the second half off the bench for Idaho State, with no stats of note reported.

Cross Country
University of Montana meet, Missoula, MT: A pair of Valley freshmen competed in yesterday’s women’s race hosted by the Grizzlies. Montana’s Chloe Cosgrove, from North Bend and a June MSHS alum, finished 45th, running the 5k course in 20 minutes, 12 seconds. Gonzaga’s Mary Cate Babcock, from Duvall and a 2017 CHS’er, took 78th, clocking 21:28.9.

Nuttycombe Invite, Madison, WI: Junior Melissa Hruska, from Snoqualmie and a 2016 MSHS’er, finished 195th in the women’s race hosted by the University of Wisconsin, clocking 22:18.5 on the course at the Thomas Zimmer facility on the Wisconsin campus.

Volleyball
Loyola Marymount def. Santa Clara 25-21, 25-22, 25-22 (Thu.): The visiting Lions spoiled the Broncos’ WCC home opener Thursday in northern California with the sweep. Junior Anna McCreadie, from North Bend and a 2016 MSHS’er, had five kills and a block for Santa Clara in the match. She also played in limited action, with no stats of note, for SC in their loss this past Tuesday to Pacific in Stockton, CA.

Northwest U. def. Multnomah 20-25, 27-25, 19-25, 25-18, 15-7: The Eagles got the host Multnomah squad’s best shot last night, but survived a thriller in five to open their weekend trip to the Rose City. Sophomore Courteney Carr, she of Snoqualmie and a 2017 Mount Si HS grad, had 34 assists, two kills and six digs to pace Northwest in this one. The win moved them to .500 on the season
