Snow continues to hold up Mount Si boys’ hoops drive to state, while a CHS grad set to make his college diamond debut on Saturday

Time now for this morning’s news.

Basketball: Another pushback for Mount Si boys’s chance to clinch trip to state
Well, the snow continues to be a problem for Mount Si High School’s boys basketball team as it seeks a trip to state for the first time since 2006.

Their winner-to-state game, which was scheduled for last Saturday at Bothell High School in the Wes-King 4A District tournament, was scrubbed due to snow, and pushed back to last night. Well, that of course didn’t happen, and they were supposed to play tonight, and that, too, was scrubbed. Now the earliest the team has announced they’ll play this game is on Friday at 7:00, still against either Skyline or Mariner, and still at Mount Si, although the couple of feet of snow that fell in the Upper Valley yesterday closed schools again today and considering some of what school officials are going to have to do in order to get everything ready, there’s a possibility of closure the rest of this week, which if that were to occur would wipe this game out.

So we’ll see what happens and how the tournament is impacted. The WIAA has reportedly instituted a Monday deadline next week to finish this up so there’s a chance that if there’s additional cancellations, the whole tournament could get called off, which would likely mean Mount Si would then advance straight through to regionals.

Meanwhile, Riverview schools are closed again today and that impacts Cedarcrest High School’s girls’ playoff game up at Lynden, so again we’ll see when that game gets in. Same situation for the Northwest 2A playoffs – there’s a chance the whole thing could get called off and if that happens, CHS likely doesn’t have a high enough seeding or RPI to advance straight through. But, again, we’ll see what happens there and keep you posted here and on Twitter if there are any changes.

Baseball: Duvall’s Davenport set to make college debut
Cedarcrest High School baseball fans looking for a respite from the snowy weather and have access to webstreaming radio are in luck. A Red Wolve alum is set to make his college debut on Saturday and you can catch the game live online.

Freshman pitcher Aaron Davenport has made the starting rotation for the University of Hawaii, and the 2018 CHS grad, who was the team’s ace this past season on the mound, is slated to take the hill for the Warriors in the first game of a doubleheader on Saturday afternoon. The game will be Davenport’s college debut and will take place at 1:00 Hawaii time, which we think is 4:00 our time here in the Valley.

KHKA-AM radio, the CBS Sports Radio affiliate down in Honolulu, will be airing the game live and you can find a live webstream of their station here. The Warriors are hosting the University of Portland for the NCAA Division I game, which is part of a season-opening weekend four-game set between the two non-league rivals; Portland is part of the West Coast Conference while Hawaii is a member of the Big West Conference.

Good luck Aaron, and we hope all of you in the lower Valley will get a chance to listen in live.
