College roundup, 1-27

Time now for a wrapup from the week for Valley athletes in college athletics.

Basketball
-The University of Portland men went 0-2 this week, with losses both Thursday and last night at home in Portland, OR. Pilot junior Tanner Riley, from North Bend, saw limited action in both contests, against San Francisco (Thu) and BYU (last night), hitting one three-pointer in the game last night, a 85-67 defeat to BYU.

-Humboldt State’s women also went 0-2 this week, losing on the road to the Los Angeles-based schools in their conference each of the past two nights. Senior Caitie Richards, from Snoqualmie, scored eight points in each of the two contests, losses to Cal State-LA (Fri) and Cal State Dominguez Hills (last night). Richards also collected six rebounds in the game last night, an 82-66 defeat.

-PLU’s men split a pair of games this week, winning Friday but falling last night. Duvall sopohomore Andrew Alness played limited action for the Lutes in last night’s game with no stats of note in the 71-68 loss to Whitworth.

Track and Field
-Three Cedarcrest HS grads saw solid results yesterday in indoor meets around the country. First, in Seattle, UW men’s freshman Mitchell Montgomery, from Duvall, finished third (eight minutes, 35.91 seconds) in the 3000m race at the Dempsey Invite hosted by the Huskies. In Wooster, OH, at a conference meet, Ohio Wesleyan sophomore men’s athlete Josh Denison, from Duvall, finished eighth (2:08.77) in the 800m race, and in Nampa, ID, Boise State women’s sophomore distance runner Cara Strodel, also from Duvall, had a solid 22nd place result (5:21.88) in the women’s mile at the Jackson’s Invite.

-Mount Si grad Georgia Reynolds, a UW sophomore, also competed yesterday in the UW indoor meet, in the women’s pole vault. The North Bend product finished tied for 10th in her heat of the event, clearing 11 feet, 10 ¾ inches.

Gymnastics
-San Jose State won at home Friday over Sacramento State in a tight one, 193.575-193.05. Fall City’s Cami Guyer, a Mount Si grad and sophomore for SJSU, competed in three events for the Spartans. She tied for fourth on bars (9.775), and fifth on beam (9.7), but struggled a bit on vault (8.95). Guyer did not compete on the floor exercise for SJSU, who continues their season this weekend a mile high, as they head to Denver for a four-way meet with Air Force, the U. of Denver and North Carolina State.

Wrestling
-Pacific-OR’s men’s team won 27-18 Thursday over Southern Oregon. While the Boxers won the team result, it was not as well for their individual local competitor. Duvall product Evan Schruers, competing for Pacific at 285 lbs., was pinned by his SOU foe, Bubba Owens, in his contest.
