The 2012-13 sports season is now underway, and we welcome you to another year of coverage here at the SVSJ

Well, our hiatus is over, and we welcome you to the start of the 2012-13 sports season here at the Snoqualmie Valley Sports Journal.

In the upcoming weeks and months, we will provide coverage of Mount Si and Cedarcrest High School sports, and other local sports as well, and also offer coverage on local high school grads playing college sports. We are still confirming rosters and schedules, but we expect to be following around 50 athletes this fall from the Valley in college sports action, at colleges all over the country. From the University of Washington and Washington State University all the way to small Brevard College in North Carolina, high school grads from our area are competing in various fall sports at all levels of NCAA and NAIA play, and we will do our best to get you all the action.

You can help play a role in our coverage, by just emailing us news tips at We are especially looking for information about fall college athletes and youth softball, so if you are a parent and want to see your son or daughter’s game information reported on here, let us know at the above email address.

Now to the one game that kicked it off last night.

Cedarcrest grads hit the pitch in women’s soccer exhibition
Sacramento State University’s women’s soccer team opened their season last night with a road exhibition game in Santa Clara, CA, against the Santa Clara Broncos.

Santa Clara took the 4-1 win over Sacramento, which returns two Cedarcrest High School grads this season – sophomores McKenna Swanson and Maggie Pleis, both of whom were keys to the Red Wolves’ run to the state title game in 2011 as high school seniors. Swanson started in last night’s game, and played the full 90 minutes on defense, with no stats of note, and Pleis did not see action. She, however, should see action as the season wears on for Sacto, who plays in the Big Sky Conference and was picked to finish seventh in their conference’s preseason poll.

The Hornets have one more exhibition game tomorrow, then the games start to count next Friday, when Sacto travels to meet UC Davis. Most action will start next weekend, with a slate of soccer and volleyball for you.
