The weekend wrap and another round of Athletes of the Week

Good Monday morning. Our Athletes of the Week on deck. First, though, our weekend wrap.

We start on the track with some track and field. We mentioned the efforts of North Bend’s Karlie Hurley yesterday at the Ed Jacoby Invitational indoor meet over in Boise on Saturday, but it turns out she was much busier than we mentioned. The Concordia-Portland senior, in addition to her strong showing in the triple jump, also competed in the 60m and 200m sprints and the long jump in the meet. Hurley took ninth in the 200m with a time of 26.53 seconds, 10th in the long jump clearing 17’2″ and 26th in the 60m preliminaries with a time of just over eight seconds missing the finals in that event.

Hurley is a 2015 Mount Si High School grad. We thank her dad Scott for letting us know about the additional events his daughter competed in in the event; we missed all of that as we were reviewing the results in preparation for our story yesterday and we apologize for the omissions.

Swimming: Mount Si alum Crumb gets it done for Boxers
It was a busy weekend for Mount Si High School alum Julia Crumb, as she competed for her Pacific University of Oregon women’s swim team in two meets. She participated in three events in each of the meets, this past Friday and Saturday, and did well in most of them.

Crumb last Friday took second in the 200 yard breaststroke, clocking 2:44.21, and the Boxer relay team she was part of took second in the 400 yard medley relay with a time of 4:28.60. In that meet, the Boxers fell to Willamette. Last Saturday, in Pacific’s loss to PLU, she took second in the 1650 yard freestyle with a time of 20:06.18, and finished fourth in two other events, the women’s 400 yard individual medley and as part of the women’s 200 yard medley relay team. Rounding it out, she took third in the 200 yard butterfly in last Friday’s meet.

The sophomore, from Snoqualmie, and her Boxer teammates take on George Fox this weekend.

Athletes of the Week
Time now for our Athletes of the Week.

MOUNT SI BOYS – We hit the mat. Mark Marum won a pair of matches this past Wednesday for the Wildcats in their dual meet split with Woodinville and North Creek. Marum pinned both of his opponents in the meets wrestling at 113 lbs. as he continues to be among the top wrestlers in the league at that weight class. Marum and Mount Si compete tomorrow at home with Mercer Island.

CEDARCREST BOYS – To the mat here as well. Evan Reid competed at 132 lbs. this past Saturday at the South Kitsap Invitational, and he was the Red Wolves’ lone weight class winner in the tournament. Reid is among the top wrestlers for CHS this winter and he and his Red Wolve teammates compete Wednesday against Shorecrest and Shorewood at Edmonds-Woodway High School.

MOUNT SI GIRLS – Senior Tylor Zwiefelhofer gets the nod this week. The gymnastics co-captain took second in the all-around last Thursday for the Wildcats as they won a Kingco three-way with Skyline and Liberty at Skyline High School in Sammamish. Her 9.45 on floor anchored a strong 33.45, bested only by teammate – and previous AotW – Kaitlyn Holt. Mount Si has been hovering in the low 160’s all season team-score wise and efforts such as Zwiefelhofer’s help maintain that solid performance. Mount Si is home on Thursday for Senior Night.

CEDARCREST GIRLS – Wrestling and we continue to recognize these girls when we get the chance so we’ll do it again now. Abbi Link, Abby Varaday and Jessica Wonder all won three matches each at their tournament this past Saturday down in Puyallup for the Red Wolves, and all placed in the Vikings Invitational as a result of their efforts. Link and Varaday, though, had to face one another in their placing match at 130 lbs., with Varaday winning in quick fashion. Those two and their teammate Wonder lead CHS into the Kingco Invitational tomorrow in Redmond.
