Valley college men’s action, 8-31

Good morning. We’ll have previews for you coming up in a little bit, but we do have a full load of college action, and a little history for the Mount Si High School football program, we believe, as well. We’ll start with that.

For the first time we think ever, two Mount Si High School grads had starting roles for Pac-12 teams in their games yesterday. Josh Mitchell earned his first collegiate start at center for Oregon State, while Cameron Van Winkle handled the kickoff kicks for the UW in their opener last night.

UW 38, Boise State 6 – In Seattle, Van Winkle, a freshman this fall with the Huskies from Fall City who graduated earlier this year from Mount Si, was able to show off his kicking ability quite a bit, and when you see the numbers, you’ll see why the UW recruited him. He kicked seven times for a total of 450 yards, with an average of just under 65 yards per kickoff, and he also recorded two touchbacks, which for those who are unaware, are kicks that are kicked into the end zone and the returning player from the opposing team takes a knee in the end zone to stop the play; the ball is then placed at the opponent’s 20-yard line for them to start their offensive series.

EWU 49, Oregon State 46 – In Corvallis, OR, Mitchell, a sophomore from North Bend who graduated in 2012 from MSHS, held his own at the center spot, and helped ensure a lot of success for his QB, Sean Mannion, who completed 37 of 43 pass attempts for over 400 yards and three touchdowns, but it was the Eagles who had the last laugh, with their QB, Vernon Adams, scoring the game-winning TD with 18 seconds left in regulation to give EWU their first win over a Pac-12 team in school history. Eastern also has a Mount Si grad on its roster this fall, Zach Storm, but he did not play in the contest. Storm is a sophomore and 2011 MSHS grad from North Bend.

Auburn (AL) 31, Washington State 24 – In Auburn, AL, WSU gave it their best, but fell to the host Tigers from the very tough SEC conference. Senior Zach Brevick, a lineman from Fall City and a MSHS grad, saw action for the Cougars in the contest.

Men’s Soccer
Claremont-Mudd-Scripps 3, Westmont 1 – In Santa Barbara, CA, Claremont freshman Alex Censullo, a June grad from Mount Si High School who hails from North Bend, made his college soccer debut and played 21 minutes off the bench for his team, but had no stats of note.

Evergreen 1, Rocky Mountain 1 – In Olympia, host Evergreen and the visitors from Montana played to a double-overtime draw. Senior Dyson Fowler started the second half for Evergreen; the MSHS grad from North Bend played 26 minutes, but recorded no stats of note.
