Also on this Sunday…..

A pair of Mount Si High School grads will be competing in their pro baseball postseason Down Under.

The New Zealand-based Auckland Tuatara took their division crown in the Australian Baseball League, beating the Brisbane Bandits from Australia 4-3 last night at home in New Zealand. MSHS 2011 alum Max Brown, from North Bend, went 0-2 for the Tuatara. Teammate – and fellow Wildcat alum – Jimmy Boyce – also plays for Auckland, who moved to 20-16 with the win.

Auckland advanced to the playoffs, taking on Melbourne this coming weekend.

Track & Field
Hurley fares well in indoor meet: North Bend’s Karlie Hurley took a solid seventh-place result yesterday in the women’s long jump event at the Ed Jacoby Invitational indoor track and field meet over in Nampa, ID. Hurley, a senior for Portland’s Concordia University and a 2015 MSHS alum, cleared 36 feet, 5 1/2 inches in her only event she competed in in the Boise State University-hosted meet.

Not so well for Harris, however: On Thursday, Hurley’s fellow MSHS alum Andrew Harris competed in a separate meet, and things didn’t go too well for the Central Washington University athlete. He competed in the men’s weight throwing event at the meet hosted by the University of Idaho and did not place after fouling out of the event. Harris is also from North Bend.
