Wednesday college report…

Time now for some college news this morning:

Mount Si grad earns postseason college recognition
The Great Northwest Athletic Conference released another fall sport’s postseason all-conference team list, and once again, a Mount Si grad playing for Central Washington University was recognized.

Sophomore setter Catie Fry, a 2011 alum of MSHS, was named to the Division II conference’s all-conference volleyball first team yesterday as one of two setters in the league earning first-team designations. The conference released the list yesterday. Fry, according to Central, finished the regular season ranked second in the conference in assists per set with just under 11 a set, while also finishing third on the team in blocks. CWU also notes she has become the 15th player in school history to record more than 1,000 assists in a single season and has aided Central to the second-best kill total in the conference this fall.

Fry joins senior CWU football lineman Michael Nelson, a 2009 MSHS alum from Carnation, as ex-Mount Si athletes playing at Central to earn first team recognition this fall from the GNAC; Nelson earned his last week, as we reported for you here.

Central is 15-11 on the season and will be competing in the NCAA D-II regionals in San Bernardino, CA December 5-7.

WJU men’s hoops falls on road
The men’s basketball team from Rocklin, CA’s, William Jessup University hit the road last night for a short trip to Cal State East Bay in nearby Hayward, and for WJU, things did not go well as they fell.

Host CSUEB handed Jessup an 83-72 loss. Junior Justin Downer, from North Bend and a 2010 MSHS alum, started for WJU and played 28 minutes, scoring five points on 2-5 from the floor (1-3 from beyond the three-point arc). He also added four assists to the efforts for Jessup, who dropped under .500 (4-5) with the loss.
