Sunday college wrap…

Monday morning brings us some college action from yesterday. We start on the links.

Golf: Mount Si grad could be in line for historic achievement
Montana State-Billings senior men’s golfer Brad Harrelson could find himself among the greats of Yellowjacket men’s golf by the end of the day if he keeps up his performance from yesterday’s opening two rounds of their latest tournament.

Harrelson, a 2010 Mount Si High School grad from Snoqualmie, fired rounds of 72 and 67 for a two-round total of 139, good for a three under-par score on the par 71 Peter Yegen Golf Club course in Billings, MT, to earn himself a tie for top spot going into today’s final round of the RMC Invitational. Harrelson is tied for the lead with RMC’s Daniel Thompsett.

MSUB, in a news release, reports that Harrelson is on pace for a top three all-time three-round performance in school history were he to hold his performance from today. All of this, by the way, comes on the heels of a strong performance last week in which he finished third in the WWU Invitational in Bellingham, a showing which earned him the Great Northwest Athletic Conference men’s golfer of the week award in an announcement made last Friday. MSU Billings golf coach Shawn O’Brien was pleased. “I thought Brad played real well,” O’Brien said in comments released by the school. “He was consistent and confident out there. He is off to a great start this season.”

Good stuff, for sure, and we’ll keep you posted on how he does today.

Now to the scores from soccer and volleyball.

Chico State men 3, CSU Dominguez Hills 1 – In Carson, CA, Chico keeper Sam Evans, from Snoqualmie and a 2010 MSHS grad, moved one step closer to history, as he won his 29th career game in goal, which according to the school ties him with a goalkeeper from the late 1960’s for second all-time in career wins in Wildcat history. Evans, a senior, was making his season debut, and needs one more win to tie for tops all time. He made three saves and gave up the lone CSUDH goal.

Sacramento State women 0, Northern Colorado 0 (2OT) – In Sacramento, the Big Sky rivals went the full 110 minutes without anyone scoring a goal or deciding a winner. McKenna Swanson, a sophomore defender for Sacto from Duvall and a 2012 Cedarcrest HS grad, started and went the distance with no stats of note.

Utah State women 2, UNLV 1 – In Las Vegas, the Rebels fell on home turf to their Mountain West rivals. Freshman Miranda Rawlings, from North Bend and a 2013 Mount Si HS grad, came off the bench for UNLV and worked 39 minutes, with one shot on goal that did not go in for a goal.

Puget Sound women 1, Willamette 0 (2OT) – The Loggers worked extra to score the road conference win in Salem, OR. Lauren Hamilton, from Spokane but who has family in the Valley, started in midfield for UPS and played 85 minutes, with no stats of note to report.

Whitman women 2, Linfield 0 – In Walla Walla, the host Missionaries downed the visitors in NWC play. Linfield junior Jessica Hargett, from North Bend and a 2011 MSHS grad, played 13 minutes off the bench for the Wildcats, and made the most of that limited work, with two shots recorded. Neither shot reached goal, however.

Florida Atlantic def. Charlotte 25-21, 25-16, 18-25, 25-21 – The 49’ers closed out their conference road swing to south Florida with this four-set loss in Boca Raton. Sophomore Sarah McDonald, from Snoqualmie and a 2012 Mount Si HS grad, had two kills, three digs and a block to aid Charlotte in their efforts.
