Monday news and notes….

We have a couple of items this morning. Look for this blog to be light on information for the next couple of weeks as most summer select teams have finished their seasons. See below, though, for some of the things we will be following for you, though.

Our fall coverage is right around the corner, however, and we have another opportunity for you to help participate in it, and this is specifically for those of you readers that live in the Valley but whose son (s) or daughter (s) attended a local private high school such as Eastside Catholic, Bear Creek School, Overlake School, Bellevue Christian, Lakeside School, etc. and are playing college sports this fall. If your son or daughter is among those that fit this description, we’d like to hear from you. Send their name, current college year, which college they are attending, which high school they graduated from and what sport they are playing, along with some contact information for you in case we need to reach you, to Also, if you live in the Valley but have family in other parts of the country who are college athletes, let us know as well.

Now to the news.

Baseball: Chaffey wins another tourney crown
The Chaffey U18 select baseball team, fresh off a tournament win earlier this month, took home another tournament title yesterday, this one up at the Skagit Wood Bat tournament in Mount Vernon.

Chaffey beat the Skagit Sox of Mount Vernon 5-1 to win the title; the Bellevue team beat the Kirkland Merchants in the semis to reach the championship game. Mount Si senior-to-be Carson Breshears had a hit in each of the two games to aid the Chaffey efforts, and he also scored a run in the win over Kirkland.

Softball: Ladyhawks Miller falls twice in national tournament
The Puyallup-based Washington Ladyhawks Miller U18 fastpitch softball team opened play yesterday at the Premier Girls Fastpitch national tournament on a down note, with two losses.

WLH fell to the California-based Firecrackers Rico 6-1, then fell to the East Cobb Bullets out of suburban Atlanta 6-2. Mount Si senior-to-be Celine Fowler was the first hitter in the batting order and played left field for WLH in the game against the Firecrackers, and went hitless in three at-bats.

Fowler and her Ladyhawks teammates play this morning in their final pool game of the tournament. Playoffs begin later on today.

The week ahead: Softball, golf
Here’s some things we’ll have coverage of for you this week:

-The Washington Junior Golf Association state youth golf tournament starts today in Pierce County, and several competitors representing Valley golf courses will be participating in the event.

-The Amateur Softball Association’s U16 “A” Nationals girls’ fastpitch tournament starts today in northern California. The Snohomish Shock U16 team will be participating, and this team includes several players from the lower Valley who play for Cedarcrest High School.
