Saturday morning news: Mount Si’s Fledderman in Sin City playing in club softball tourney, plus college football, volleyball, hoops and soccer!!

Amidst all of our previews and picks, we have some news this morning and we first hit the diamond for some softball.

For the second straight weekend, a Mount Si High School softball player is playing in a club tournament down in Las Vegas this weekend. This weekend’s event, a Triple Crown-sponsored event, features the Bellevue-based Washington Vipers 18U and Wildcat Chasey Fledderman. Scores and highlights from the opening night of action last night from Gamechanger and the Gamechanger app, available on Apple IPhones and IPads in their app store.

Washington Vipers 18U 4, All-American Fastpitch 1: The Vipers scored three runs in the second to put the Colorado Springs team away in the opener of the tournament last night. Fledderman went 0-1, but was hit by a pitch and scored a run.

Washington Vipers 18U 11, Lil’ Rebels 2: The Vipers scored eight runs in the third to make short work of the Las Vegas team in the nightcap last night. Fledderman went 0-2.

The tournament continues through tomorrow. Also of note, college coaches are on hand at the event scouting the players there, meaning Fledderman has a chance to be seen by the right people as she aims to make it to the next level – college softball. Among the schools represented there according to TCS are Olympic College, a community college in Bremerton, and both Blue Mountain Community College and Pacific University from Oregon. Most of the schools there are from California, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado and the Midwest.

College action now.
