Time for other news on a Sunday.

PLU men fall to Whitworth: The Lutes dropped an 87-81 home decision to visiting Whitworth down in Tacoma last night. Freshman Brett Williams played limited minutes for PLU in this one; the 2019 MSHS’er from Snoqualmie had no stats of note for the Lutes.

Former CHS’er starts college season: Trinity University of Texas opened its softball season at home in San Antonio yesterday being swept by in-state rival Concordia of Texas.

Concordia took the games 4-0 in the opener and 8-1 in the nightcap. Sophomore Lauren Rich played in both games for Trinity. She was the designated hitter in the opener, and went 0-3 with a walk, then played first base in the nightcap, going 0-2 with two walks and a run scored. Rich is a former Valleyite who played her freshman year of high school softball with Cedarcrest High School in 2015 before she and her family moved to Texas, where she graduated in 2018 from a suburban Dallas high school.
