The weekend wrap and our Athletes of the Week

Good Monday morning. Our weekend wrap first then our Athletes of the Week.

On the Diamond
Baseball: Gonzaga 4, Portland 3 (11) – The Bulldogs outlasted the Pilots in extras to sweep their WCC weekend set down in the Rose City. Valleyites Mason Marenco and Carson Breshears, both from North Bend and Mount Si HS grads, went a combined 0-7 with an RBI for GU in the game.

Softball: Bellevue CC 9, Shoreline 4 (game one, doubleheader) – North Bend’s Maddy Trout homered and doubled for BCC, scoring twice and driving in two more, as the Bulldogs took the opener of two with the Dolphins in Seattle. But, as you’ll see below, she was only just warming up…..

Baseball: Skagit Valley 8, Shoreline 6 (13 inn., game one, doubleheader) – The Cardinals outlasted the Dolphins in a marathon in the first of two yesterday in Seattle. Sophomore Jake Jewell, he of Carnation and a 2016 Cedarcrest HS grad, pinch-ran for Shoreline in the game but did not score a run. The second game result was not reported.

Softball: Bellevue CC 20, Shoreline 4 (game two, doubleheader) – The sophomore, a 2017 Mount Si HS grad, was a triple short of the cycle in going 5-5, with another two runs scored and four RBI’s, as BCC swept the twinbill. Trout is now hitting .463 with four homers and 24 RBI’s.

Top-20 for North Bend’s Nelson: Pacific Lutheran University junior Alex Nelson fired a 78 yesterday to close out a two-day total of 154 and take a tie for 14th in the Northwest Conference Sping Classic men’s golf tournament down in Olympia. Nelson finished +14 over par on the par 70 Olympia Golf and Country Club course. He is from North Bend and one of three Mount Si High School grads playing for the Lutes. The other two, Jordan Lau and Mitch Dover, did not compete in this weekend’s tournament.

Athletes of the Week
Our Athletes of the Week now. To the ladies and softball for both of these.

MOUNT SI – The Wildcat softball team is young – with almost half the program being freshmen – so it has been a bit of a challenge this season, and based on where things stand currently, the club is not expected to make postseason. Still, though, there have been some bright spots, including that of Cassidy Brickman, who had two hits, including a double, scored a run and drove in two more for scarlet and gray in a loss to North Creek last Wednesday. Mount Si is at Issaquah today.

CEDARCREST – Softball as well as we wild card it this week for the first time, and sophomore Payton Pluschke is also delivering for the Red Wolves; she doubled twice as part of a 3-4 effort for the Red Wolves last Tuesday, scoring two runs and driving in three more, as CHS fell in a slugfest to Marysville-Pilchuck. CHS is at Edmonds-Woodway today.
