Warford to compete for another prestigious golf opportunity, plus some other news from the links and a couple of diamond cuts on a Tuesday….

Good Tuesday morning. We’re going to start off a real light morning with news on a Mount Si High School boys’ golfer.

Senior-to-be Drew Warford will once again compete for a trip to a prestigious national tournament. Warford’s in the field for the U.S. boys’ Junior Amateur sectional qualifier tournament being held next Monday over at Canterwood Golf and Country Club in Gig Harbor. Warford will be taking on an international field of competitors for the chance to compete in the Junior Amateur, which will be held at the historic Inverness Club in Toledo, OH, in July.

As for the U.S. Girls’ Junior Amateur, their local sectional will be on July 1. Not known yet is whether Mount Si sophomore-to-be Kasey Maralack will be competing, but we’d guess strongly she’ll be in that field when it’s announced.

In the meantime, both of them will be staying busy this summer as both compete on the Washington Junior Golf Association tour. That season will start on June 24. Warford will be competing once again in the south King County/Pierce County-centric District 6 while Maralack will be participating in the association’s Seattle/Eastside District 2. Golfers from the Valley will be competing in four different districts this summer, with most either in Districts 2 or 6.

To the diamond cuts. Seattle Premier League 18U baseball action featuring some Mount Si High School alums for you this morning, courtesy of Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.

Narrows Baseball 2, Boys of Summer 18U Blue 0: Bellevue-based Boys fell in a pitcher’s duel down in Tacoma to Gig Harbor-based Narrows under the lights last night. 2019 Mount Si grads Spencer Marenco and Trace Halvorson both saw action for BoS in this one, going a combined 1-6 (Marenco had the hit, and both players also reached base on Narrows errors).

Washington A’s 18U Premier 4, Rock Creek Premier 1: The Sammamish-based A’s took this one at home at Eastlake High School in Sammamish. 2018 Mount Si alum Will Scott earned the save in this one on the mound for the A’s, pitching a near-perfect seventh inning striking out one. Scott is back for the summer after finishing his freshman year with the NCAA Division II Colorado School of Mines.
