Friday news notes….

Good Friday morning. Our news this morning is from summer baseball.

Past and present Mount Si players contribute to Chaffey win
Current, and former, Mount Si players had a hand in a big win for Chaffey U18 Select baseball last night.

Chaffey pitcher Joe Boyce, a former Mount Si player who spent this spring pitching for Eastside Catholic, fired a three-hit complete game gem as Chaffey rolled to an 11-1 five inning win at Issaquah High School; the game was called early due to the mercy rule. Boyce gave up just the one run on those three hits, striking out four. He needed only 63 pitches to get it done, 42 of those went for strikes.

As for the current Mount Si’er, Carson Breshears was hitless in three at-bats for Chaffey, but walked, scored a run and also drove in one as well.

Washington A’s rally for win
The Washington A’s U18’s rallied late to score a 5-4 win over the Kirkland Merchants last night at Lee Johnson Field in Kirkland. A’s pitcher Connor Swift, a Mount Si senior, saw his first action on the hill since last weekend’s state playoff games for the Wildcats in the Tri-Cities, and had a decent showing, giving up four runs on seven hits in four innings of work, striking out two. Teammate – and fellow Wildcat – Austin Hall walked three times and scored twice to aid the A’s efforts.

We also have one other item to mention, and that is today and tomorrow, the Washington State Combined Events high school track and field championships are taking place in Lake Stevens, and Cedarcrest High School is scheduled to send athletes to this meet. We will have coverage of that here for you this weekend. More information on that meet is at this website here.
