On the college front, 9-29

Here is yesterday’s college action involving Valley athletes.

Big day for Mount Si grad in men’s soccer shootout
It was a wild one between Sonoma State and Humboldt State yesterday in a men’s soccer game down in Arcata, CA. Sonoma won the contest 5-4, but it was a North Bend product who was the story for the ‘Jacks in this one, as Eric Baumgardner scored twice to lead HSU.

The 2011 Mount Si grad pocketed his first tally in the 34th minute, firing a one timer into the lower left corner of the net past Sonoma GK Andrew Ball. Teammate Zach Hammond was credited with an assist on that goal, then in the 55th minute, Baumgardner struck again, picking up a feed from teammate Dan Mariani and firing the ball point blank past Ball into the net. Another teammate, Brian Holmes, also had an assist on that score.

Baumgardner now has three goals on the season; the third came last weekend in an HSU loss to Cal-Poly Pomona.

Western Washington women’s soccer wins on road
The Vikings went down to Western Oregon and beat them 4-1 yesterday. WWU sophomore Ashton Griffen, a 2010 CHS’er from Duvall who is new to the Vikings this fall after one season at Southern Oregon, came off the bench and logged 35 minutes, not recording any stats of note.

Historic win for San Diego State volleyball
SDSU beat Wyoming in Mountain West play last night 25-19, 25-11, 25-20, giving their coach, Deitre Collins-Parker, her 200th career coaching victory, according to the school. A former Mount Si player who has been instrumental in a few of those wins in the last two years, sophomore Summer Nash, did not play for the Aztecs last night. Nash played for the Wildcats in 2006 and 2007 before transferring to, then graduating from in 2010, Bishop Blanchet High in Seattle.

The Wildcats were swept by Western Oregon 25-23, 25-22, 25-18. CWU freshman Catie Fry, from North Bend and a 2011 Mount Si grad, did not compete for the Wildcats in the contest.
