College scoreboard on this Saturday….ladies first!!!

College action on this Saturday this morning is all about the ladies.

Northwest U. def. Warner Pacific 25-19, 25-23, 29-27: A double-double from a Valleyite paced the Eagles to the home sweep last night in Kirkland over the Knights from Portland.

Sophomore Courteney Carr had 27 assists and 11 digs to lead NWU, going along with two kills and an ace for the Eagles, who moved to 15-13 overall, 11-8 in Cascade Conference (NAIA) play with the win. Carr is from Snoqualmie and a 2017 Mount Si HS grad.

Whitman def. Linfield 25-11, 25-18, 25-19: The Blues closed out the season strong last night at home in Walla Walla with a sweep of the struggling Wildcats. North Bend’s Emma Anderson completed her freshman season for Whitman with 13 assists and eight digs to pace the Blues. The June Mount Si HS grad finished the 2018 campaign with 115 assists, which was 17th overall in the Northwest Conference (NCAA Division III). Whitman finished 10-14 overall, 6-10 in conference play.

Valleyite’s college career comes to close in postseason tournament loss: The University of Idaho’s women allowed a pair of goals 30 seconds apart in the first half, and that helped result in a 3-0 loss to Northern Colorado in the semifinals of the Big Sky Conference tournament yesterday down in Ogden, UT, ending the Vandals’ season and the college career of Snoqualmie’s Claire Johnson. The Idaho senior defender worked the full 90 for the Vandals with no stats of note. She is a 2015 MSHS grad. Idaho finished the season 9-7-3.

Multnomah shows some rust in loss: The NAIA’s Lions fell on the road last night in Merced, CA, to host UC Merced 69-62 for their first loss of the season. Freshman Sydney Turner, she of Duvall and a June Cedarcrest alum, hit one three-pointer (in her lone shot attempt of the game) in limited action for Multnomah and also had a rebound and assist. This was the Lions’ first game in two weeks – they opened the season October 18 with a win over Yellowstone Christian. Multnomah plays again today in Merced against St. Katherine, then returns home for a pair next weekend – including one against Snoqualmie’s Elizabeth Prewitt and her NCAA Division III Puget Sound ladies.
