College news

A Valley college athlete has earned a prestigious honor from his university.

University of Portland senior Logan Orndorf, from Duvall and a 2014 Cedarcrest HS grad, has been named the school’s U.S. Bank men’s Student Athlete of the Month for November. That announcement was made this week.

Orndorf helped guide the Pilots’ cross country team to nationals this fall, after finishing 13th at this year’s regional meet. Portland made the podium at the national meet in Wisconsin a couple of weeks ago, led by a top-25 finish from the former Red Wolve.

A congrats to him from us here at the SVSJ. He joins Pilot volleyball player Katie Barker in earning this recognition.


Mount Si grad Crumb busy in the pool: Pacific University (OR) women’s swimmer Julia Crumb, from Snoqualmie, saw plenty of time in the water last weekend for the Boxers in their final event before the winter break.

Crumb, a June MSHS grad, competed in a number of events for Pacific at the George Fox Invitational in Newberg, OR. She competed in the 100-yard butterfly and took ninth, clocking just over a minute (1:06.09 to be exact). The former Wildcat also raced the 200-yard individual medley and finished eighth, clocking 2:26.87. In the 500-yard freestyle, she finished fourth, with a time of 5:56.43, and she was also part of a 400-yard relay foursome which finished sixth clocking 4:45.89.

As noted, the Boxers will not return to action until after the holidays.
