Mount Si boys’ soccer gets win and CHS track starts 2019 campaign

Mount Si High School’s boys’ soccer team didn’t let a field change stop them from another win last night.

After their home opener against Lake Washington was shifted from the school’s stadium in Snoqualmie due to continued snow on the field – yes, almost a month and a half since our big snow event there is still snow on the ground in some locations including in the Mount Si stadium – the Wildcats made the grounds at Chief Kanim Middle School in Fall City their home away from home for a 1-0 win over the Kangs.

Drew Harris connected with Sullivan Smith for the lone goal of the contest in the 50th minute as the Wildcats used strong defense to get things done.

Mount Si will host Eastlake, hopefully at MSHS, this coming Tuesday at 7:30 p.m., and with the warm weather in the forecast, that should melt any remaining snow on the ground inside the stadium over the next couple of days, so there is a good chance they’ll be playing the game inside the Wildcat stadium.

Also this morning, from track and field:

Cedarcrest track and field starts season
Cedarcrest High School’s track and field team opened their season Thursday with a jamboree at Granite Falls High School against the host Tigers, a former Red Wolve Cascade Conference rival, and Wesco 3A’s Marysville-Getchell.

Cedarcrest fared well with the boys and girls each recording an individual event win. The girls one came from senior Lauren Krause in the 300 meter dash, as she clocked 45.42 seconds to take that race. The boys’ winner was Daniel Enciso-Navarro in the javelin, as he tossed it 142 feet for top spot in that event.

Of note also on the boys’ side were a pair of runner-up finishes by Brennan LeBlanc, who took second in both the 600m dash (1:32.80) and 1600m run (4:44.58). The girls also had second-place showings from Lilly Marshall in the 100m dash (13.30) and Sydney Smith in the 100m hurdles (18.83). Also, the Red Wolve relay unit of Krause, Grace McKenzie, Kiley Frank and Ava Erhardt took second in the 4×200 girls’ relay (1:55.90).

CHS hosts Everett and Meadowdale to open the season next Thursday.
