In the news, 4-28

We’ll have Mount Si’s baseball game story shortly, but first, a couple of news packages for you.

Wildcat girls golf suffers tough loss at Juanita
Mount Si’s girls golf team fell Thursday in a close one to Juanita, 279-282 (lower score wins), at Wellington Hills Golf Course outside Woodinville.

Tabitha Dorn fired a round of 44 to take medalist honors, but the Wildcats clearly felt the absence of top player Danielle Burns, who is out nursing a wrist injury. Cecilia Dixon shot a 52 to pace Mount Si, while Olivia Doherty carded a 53 to also aid the efforts.

The Wildcats Monday meet Mercer Island at Jefferson Park Golf Course in Seattle.

College athletes in action
On the college front, some news for you this morning. First, Central Washington’s softball season is over after a split of a doubleheader yesterday with Western Washington. North Bend’s Kyleen Sweepe got the start at second base in the first game, won by Central 9-2. Sweepe did not get any at-bats, but did contribute a putout and three assists defensively at second base which helped the efforts. The Mount Si grad did not play in the second game, won by Western 1-0, ending CWU’s season at 19-29 overall.

In track and field news, North Bend’s Alex Rudd, running for the Southern Oregon women’s track team, scored an eighth-place finish in the women’s 5000m last night at the Pacific Twilight meet in Forest Grove, OR, clocking a time of 18:01.13.

Baseball saw Texas Tech get blanked last night at home by Missouri, 9-0, in Lubbock, TX. Freshman Tim Proudfoot, from North Bend, went 0-4 and saw his average drop to .257 for the Red Raiders, who were shut out in a game for the first time since last season, a total of 91 straight contests. Meanwhile, in Olathe, KS, MNU pitcher Kyle Olson, a Cedarcrest HS grad from Duvall, had another strong day on the mound to help lead MNU to a 4-2 win in the first game of a doubleheader over Benedictine. Olson pitched a complete game five-hitter, with only one of the two runs he gave up being earned. The junior walked three and struck out five to lift his record to 6-3 on the season. The nightcap also went to MNU, 6-5.
