Mount Si’s Patterson lands another scholarship offer, plus the morning round of diamond cuts and a trip to the links…..

Good Thursday morning. We have news this morning from the diamond, but also from the hardwood. Another day, another college scholarship offer for a top Mount Si High School basketball player.

Senior-to-be Tyler Patterson received his fourth NCAA Division I offer yesterday, his second this week, from Seattle University. MSHS’s program announced it, as they have done all week, on their Twitter feed. SU is part of the Western Athletic Conference and the Redhawk team is coached by longtime regional college basketball man Jim Hayford, who had success at two schools east of the Cascades – Whitworth and Eastern Washington – prior to assuming the SU job a couple of years ago. They are currently constructing a new on-campus arena to replace the Key Arena/Connolly Center setup the school has used since its return to NCAA Division I.

Patterson on Monday landed an offer from Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo, and his teammate Jabe Mullins had a day to remember Tuesday, picking up five – from the University of Portland, the University of San Diego, Northeastern University, Stanford University and Washington State University.

All of this interest as we have been telling you is largely the result of their performance during this past weekend’s Section 7 Camp tournament in Arizona, a competition that was attended by at least a couple of hundred coaches from various NCAA colleges.

Time for our diamond cuts. Scores from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.

Padron finished 1-4 and is hitting .275 this season for the Valley-based Honkers, who hope to have a home field again in our community next year. They are playing home games at various locations around the Eastside this season as it seeks that permanent home facility to replace Fall City Community Park, which had been hosting those games.

Golf
Mount Si boys’ pair advances to WJGA district tourney: Mount Si’s Drew Warford and Cooper Neil both punched tickets to the Washington Junior Golf Association’s District Six tournament
yesterday after solid rounds in the district’s season opening event in Enumclaw.

Warford fired a three-over par 73 while Neil carded a six-over 76, both finishing in the top 10 in the boys’ 16-18 age group and earning the trips to district, which will happen in a few weeks in Orting. A third MSHS’er, Logan Garwood, also competed in the age group and fired a 95. He did not qualify. Garwood is not part of the Wildcat boys’ golf program; he, however, plays for Mount Si’s baseball program.
