Monday news notes….

Time now for our Monday morning news and notes.

Women’s Soccer: Sacramento State wins exhibition
Sacramento State’s women’s soccer team wrapped up their exhibition schedule with a 2-0 win over the Sacramento Storm club team last night in Sacramento, CA. Hornet sophomore McKenna Swanson, a 2012 Cedarcrest HS grad from Duvall, started on defense for Sacramento State for the second straight game and logged 62 minutes of action with no stats of note. Fellow sophomore – and CHS grad – Maggie Pleis did not see any action.

SSU is next in action Friday night at UC Davis.

Basketball: Riley closes out overseas trip on strong note for Portland men
For the second straight game, and third time on their overseas trip, University of Portland senior men’s basketball player Tanner Riley led the way on offense, and the North Bend product’s efforts aided a win.

UP wrapped up their swing through Spain and the Canary Islands last night with a 111-48 blowout of the CB Select team, propelled by the game-high 20 points of Riley, a 2010 MSHS grad. He was one of six Pilots in double figures and hit nine of 15 shot attempts from the floor.

Riley and his Portland teammates finish their trip at 3-2 and will be returning to the United States tomorrow.

Golf: Boeing Classic week starts today
The Boeing Classic golf tournament takes place this week up at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge. The pre-tournament events begin today, with the actual event starting Friday and running through Sunday at the Snoqualmie golf course.

The Classic, a Champions Tour senior men’s pro event, has developed into one of the top tournaments on the regular Champions calendar, and will once again have a full field.

The tour pros will be flying in today from upstate New York, where they played their most recent event, which wrapped up yesterday. Bart Bryant won that tournament by one shot over Russ Cochran and Corey Pavin.
