Saturday news and notes….

Here’s the news and notes:

Golf: Bryant continues on roll on Champions Tour
We made a brief mention for you earlier this week leading into the Boeing Classic Champions Tour senior men’s pro golf tournament, going on this weekend at the TPC Snoqualmie Ridge golf course in Snoqualmie, that tour pro Bart Bryant was coming into this week off a win in last weekend’s Champions Tour event in New York. Well, Bryant continued his strong play yesterday, finishing the opening round of the Classic with a -6 under 66 and the lead after the first day of play, which wraps up tomorrow.

Bryant will team with Duffy Waldorf and Bobby Clampett, who both finished the round yesterday one shot back, in the final grouping of the day off of tee 1 at noon this afternoon. The group featuring Seattle native Fred Couples heads out at 11:40 this morning. Couples is three shots back.

Again, for those who can’t make it, the Golf Channel has live coverage later this afternoon.

Running: Snoqualmie Days run results in Steilacoom 10k sweep
Last Saturday, the Snoqualmie Days 5k and 10k runs were held, and the two races attracted nearly 400 entrants. In the 10k run, it was a sweep by runners from the Pierce County community of Steilacoom.

Gregory Leak was the overall winner, and top men’s finisher, clocking 30 minutes, 37 seconds, and Chelsea Prahl, who was 19th overall, was the top women’s finisher, coming in with a time of 35:38. The top Valleyite in the 10k run was Snoqualmie’s Jeff Scott, who clocked 41:13 and finished 42nd overall.

Mount Si grad Tim Corrie, who lives in Redmond, took 23rd overall in the race with a time of 36:20.

On the 5k front, the top finisher was Sterling Bath of Renton, who had a time of 16:34. Oak Harbor’s Laura Rodeheffer was the top women’s finisher, clocking 20:32. The top Valleyite was Snoqualmie’s Joseph Waskom, who clocked 17:45.

Mount Si senior cross country runner Bailey Scott competed in this race, and she finished 36th overall, clocking 22:49. Scott is expected to be one of the top returners for the Wildcat cross country team this fall; we’ll be doing a team preview for them and all of the Valley high school fall sports teams over the next couple of weeks for you here.

Baseball: Season winding down for Kimborowicz, Rays
The Appalachian League baseball schedule is coming down to its final days of the season, and that means the first pro season for Mount Si grad Josh Kimborowicz is coming to a close.

Last night, the former Wildcat saw an inning of work on the mound in relief for the Princeton Rays in a game against the Bristol White Sox of Tennessee. “Kimbo” struck out two Bristol hitters in the one inning, and Princeton delivered a 10-3 win. They finish their series tonight with Bristol, then play their final three games of the season tomorrow-Tuesday against Elizabethton (TN).

We’ll keep you posted on how Kimborowicz finishes things out.
