Volleyball and track news…..

Time now for some volleyball and track.

The opening day of the Emerald City Classic girls’ club volleyball tournament at the University of Washington yesterday saw several Mount Si High School freshmen volleyball players get a chance to take on each other in a game. The freshmen, Bailey Showalter, Paige Phelps, Kira Holmberg and Jade Petrzelka, compete for the Bellevue-based Sudden Impact Typhoon U15 (Showalter) and Kent-based KJ 15’s (the others) teams.

The Mount Si freshmen’s teams battled one another in the nightcap of the day’s action, which consisted of three matches each for both teams against top regional opposition. KJ and the Typhoon went at it inside the Dempsey Indoor facility on the university’s Seattle campus and the match was all Typhoon, as they took it in a two-set 25-22, 25-10 sweep. Matches in this tournament, as are the case with all club tournaments, are best two of three as opposed to the best of five you see for high school volleyball.

Typhoon closed out a 3-0 day with that win while KJ finished day one 1-2. In other action at the tournament, Bellevue-based Sudden Impact’s 17’s, with Mount Si’s Bre Fitzgerald and Megan Underbrink, went 1-2 as well on the day. All three teams continue play in the event through tomorrow.

There are no Cedarcrest High School players competing in this weekend’s event.

To track and field.

Waskom wins final high school race
Action wrapped up yesterday down in Tacoma at the Washington state 4A and 2A high school track and field meets for Mount Si and Cedarcrest High School’s track and field teams.

The headliner was a spectacular final high school race for Mount Si High School distance star Joe Waskom. The senior won the 4A boys’ 3200m race, clocking a time of 8:56.02 and beating Kingco rival Luke Houser from Woodinville by over a second. His distance coach at Mount Si, Sean Sundwall, was on hand to witness it, and he was thrilled to say the least. “An amazing end to an amazing high school career from an amazing kid,” Sundwall told us via Twitter. “It’s the third fastest combined 1600 and 3200 time in state meet history.”

In other Wildcat action to round out the weekend, Karlie Stewart took eighth in the 4A’ girls high jump, clearing five feet, and Abby Triou closed out her high school career taking 18th in the girls’ shot put, with a toss of 33’11”. She finished 12th in the discus on Thursday.

For Cedarcrest, Kiley Frank took seventh in the 2A girls’ 200m dash, clocking 26.89 seconds. Lily Bradley finished 10th in the 2A girls’ pole vauly, clearing nine feet, six inches. Lauren Krause took 13th in the 2A girls’ triple jump, clearing 32′ 5 1/4″, and the Red Wolve girls’ 4×200 unit of Frank, Krause, Smith and Grace McKenzie finishing sixth in the finals of the 2A 4×200 relay clocking 1:46.35. The lone CHS boys’ competitor this weekend, Daniel Enciso-Navarro, took ninth yesterday in the 2A boys’ javelin, with a toss of 151’5″.
