Volleyball update….

Good Monday morning, on this Memorial Day, and we hope you take time to honor the sacrifice of our nation’s veterans today.

We have a lot to get to this morning, so we’ll start with volleyball.

On the volleyball front this morning, the Emerald City Classic girls’ volleyball tournament wraps up today, and we will be following closely the Sudden Impact 17s from Issaquah. This team, with Mount Si’s Lindsay Carr, is in the hunt for a tournament title after another strong showing yesterday. Among their wins yesterday was one against Sabotage 18s from SeaTac, which also feature a Wildcat player, Lexie Read. SIVBC is 5-1 overall and seeded #3 in today’s championship playoffs, which begin later today, with a live game on the tournament website at 12:15 this afternoon. See here for more on that.

As for Sabotage, they will play in the Silver playoff bracket in the U18 division today.

Another big day yesterday was seen by the High Velocity 16’s from Bellevue, who won all three of their games yesterday to bounce up to 4-2 overall on the event. This team, with Mount Si’s Danielle Seaman, plays in the U16 Silver division playoffs today, along with the KJ 15’s and Wildcat Haley Holmberg, who stumbled yesterday after opening with a strong Saturday.

We’ll have a full wrapup on everyone in that event for you here tomorrow. There are a total of eight teams with Mount Si or Cedarcrest players in that tournament.

The play has wrapped up in the other holiday weekend event, this one sponsored by the Northwest Juniors club. Relentless Pursuit Purple, the Mercer Island-based team with Mount Si players Liz Larson, Taylor Murray and Sydney Young, finished 19th after a solid day yesterday. They split four matches after winning a late match Saturday night following their 0-3 start we mentioned for you here yesterday. RPP ended 3-5 overall on the weekend.

Softball, colleges and Athlete of the Week on tap.
