Mount Si volleyball and Cedarcrest soccer news on this “Hump Day” Wednesday…….

Good Wednesday morning.

Volleyball on the ledger this morning and Mount Si High School’s varsity will be looking to get back into the win column tonight taking on the Woodinville Falcons after the Wildcats fell Monday at home to old friend Callie Wesson and her Skyline Spartans.

The Spartans, coached by Wesson, a former assistant of Wildcat head coach Bonnie Foote, rallied from an early hole to take it in four, 23-25, 27-25, 25-17, 25-19. Bailey Showalter led the way with 12 kills, 18 digs, three aces, a block and an assist, while Breana Fitzgerald had 13 kills, 10 digs, an assist, three aces and 1 ½ blocks. Kami Smith added 11 digs, ½ block, two assists and two aces to the Mount Si efforts.

The Wildcats as noted host Woodinville tonight.

Mount Si JV wins: The Wildcat JV’s took care of Skyline, beating the Spartans 21-25, 25-13, 25-16. Megan Simpson led Mount Si with a kill, 15 assists, nine digs and an ace, while Natalie Morse had an ace and 13 digs. Kira Holmberg had 14 digs and three aces, and Alyssa Ray had four digs, six kills, an ace and a block. Mount Si hosts Woodinville tonight. JV and C team games are at 5:30 with varsity to follow at 7:00. All matches are at MSHS’ gymnasium in Snoqualmie.

Mount Si “C” roaring along: The Wildcats are now 9-1 on the season in “C”-team play and 5-0 in league, a great accomplishment for these girls, and they showed why they’re the best in the league in “C” team action with a 25-16, 25-13, 25-12 blowout of the Spartan “C” squad Monday. Alyssa Underbrink had 14 digs, two assists and an ace for Mount Si, and Carly Fletcher had 14 assists, two aces, two digs and a kill. Ella Moore had five aces and five digs for the Wildcats, and Hannah Davis added an ace for Mount Si, who host Woodinville tonight.

College note:

Carr aids NWU sweep: We missed this from Sunday night but Northwest U.’s ladies made quick work of winless Walla Walla University at home in Kirkland. A Valleyite factored into it, too, for the Eagles.

Snoqualmie’s Courteney Carr had 24 assists for Northwest in the 25-18, 25-17, 25-16 thrashing of the visitors, moving to 8-4 in Cascade Collegiate Conference play (NAIA) and 12-9 overall, and dropping Walla Walla to 0-13 on the season. Carr, a sophomore and 2017 MSHS grad, also had two aces and a dig for the Eagles, who continue play Friday in the front end of a back-to-back road swing to the Willamette Valley, playing against Northwest Christian down in Eugene, OR.

Soccer: CHS falls in battle of league leaders
More later on this, but the Cedarcrest Red Wolves girls’ soccer squad gave it their best last night, but a first-half goal from Michaela Danyo proved to be the difference for Edmonds-Woodway as the Warriors took the 1-0 decision over CHS in Duvall that knocked the Red Wolves out of a tie for first place in Wesco 2A/3A.

Gaby Chappell assisted on the goal for E-W. CHS continues play at Mountlake Terrace tomorrow night.

College news:

Anderson makes first college start in goal, and shares in shutout: Recent Mount Si High School grad Renee Anderson got the start in goal yesterday for Lawrence Tech University’s women’s soccer team in their road game against Rochester (MI) in suburban Detroit, and it went well.

Anderson, a freshman this fall who walked the aisle at MSHS back in June, made three saves in one half of work – the first 45 minutes, and shared the shutout with fellow freshman Madison Turley, who worked the second half, as the Blue Devils handled the host Rochester side 4-0 in front of just 25 fans – yes, just 25 fans – at Rochester’s field in Pontiac, MI, north of Detroit.

The win moved the NAIA Tech side to 5-6-2 on the season, 2-3-1 in league play. This was Anderson’s fourth game overall, but her first-ever start as a collegian. She is from Snoqualmie.
