Baseball: Wildcats named to all-Kingco postseason rosters
Mount Si High School’s baseball program received word this week that seven of their players were named to the All-Kingco postseason all-star rosters.

Three of them made the all-Kingco first team. Spencer Marenco made it at second base, while Troy Baunsgard earned it at shortstop and Trace Halvorson landed a nod as a designated hitter. First baseman Harrison Clark received an all-Kingco second team designation at that position, and three others – catcher Cam Ferreri, outfielder Trevor Clem and pitcher Levi Jorgensen – received honorable mentions.

Mount Si finished 9-12 this season, falling in the first round of the WesKing 4A district tournament to Jackson earlier this month. The program is busy already in their offseason program, with a large number of their players, including several of the all-league honorees, competing in summer club baseball with a number of local organizations. We’ll have full coverage of those games for you here throughout the summer at the SVSJ!

Volleyball: Mixed results for Valley girls’ teams at southwest Washington tourney
Last weekend saw four Valley girls’ club teams competing at the Northwest Juniors’ Mother’s Day weekend tournament down in Centralia. It was a mixed bag for the squads, three of which came from Snoqualmie-based RidgeValley and the fourth coming from Carnation-based Valley View.

RidgeValley’s U13 and U14 teams both held their own, finishing seventh and 13th respectively out of 15 teams entered in the U14 age group at the event last Friday-Sunday, which drew a small number of organizations from around the Northwest into the event. Both teams went 3-4 on the weekend. RidgeValley’s 12’s and the Valley View 13’s entry both finished winless on the weekend and at the back of their respective age groups.

All of the teams featured girls primarily from the Snoqualmie Valley (RV) and Riverview (VV) school districts, so a lot of future Mount Si and Cedarcrest High School players got a chance to show their skills in this event.

This weekend all local teams are off, with the Memorial Day weekend tournaments next weekend. We’ll preview all that action for you next week in our weekly volleyball segment.

Soccer: Mount Si boys’ soccer playoff game time announced
The game time has been announced for this weekend’s quarterfinal game in the WIAA 4A state boys’ soccer playoffs for Mount Si High School’s boys’ soccer team.

The Wildcats will play Issaquah tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. down at Issaquah High School. Mount Si beat Sumner on Wednesday in the first round to advance, while the Eagles beat Tahoma on Tuesday in their first round matchup also to advance. The last time these two teams met was on Senior Night April 30, when Mount Si beat Issaquah 2-1.

The winner advances to the state semifinals next weekend while the loser heads home. We’ll have a preview and pick for you here tomorrow.
