Diamond cuts on this Easter Sunday…..

Good Sunday morning. Happy Easter to all of you from us here at the SVSJ. We start our news package off with a little baseball this morning.

Mount Si High School’s junior varsity crew finally got their rained out game with Eastlake in yesterday, and it proved to be a loss for the Wildcats, as the Wolves doubled them up 4-2. Eastlake scored twice in the fifth to break a 2-2 tie and post the win. Jared Johnson led the Wolves, going 2-2 with a run scored while for Mount Si, Aidan Dougherty had two triples and scored a run.

Loss yesterday follows no-hitter for JV team: The Tyler’s – Disch and Clem – combined on a no-hitter Friday for Mount Si’s JV’s as they rolled over Newport 13-0 in a run-rule win after five at Bannerwood Park in Bellevue. Disch had a double and drove in three runs to pace Mount Si, and Clem also doubled, too, scoring two runs and driving in a third. Both pitchers combined to strike out six hitters for Mount Si as they scored nine runs in the first then let their hurlers do the rest.

The Wildcats are at Skyline tomorrow.
