Friday news and notes….

Time now for our Friday news notes.

Mount Si wrestling downs Liberty
The Mount Si High School wrestling team closed out the regular season with a win at home in Snoqualmie last night.

Mount Si easily handled Liberty 43-18 on Senior Night, in which the program’s seniors were honored for their four years in the program. Eli Clure (126), Gunnar Harrison (132), Ryley Absher (145), Justin Edens (152), Tye Rodne (160), Cameron McLain (195) and Andrew Harris (220) all won their matches by pinning their Liberty opponents, and in the lone match which went the distance, at 138 lbs., Mason Marenco of Mount Si defeated the Patriots’ Tyler Lee in a 4-1 decision. Makhosandie Lancelot (106) also won his match, by forfeit, for the Wildcats.

The Wildcats now move on to the Kingco tournament next week.

College basketball: Big night for Mount Si grad lifts Cal Lutheran women’s basketball
Freshman Katy Lindor, a 2013 Mount Si High School graduate from Snoqualmie, has played an integral role for California Lutheran University’s women’s basketball team this season as a key reserve. Last night, though, her efforts proved to be especially important, helping CLU score a huge win to help their postseason chances.

Lindor, in 22 minutes off the bench, scored 17 points and added eight rebounds, leading the Regals to a 71-59 road win over Occidental College in Los Angeles. The win moved CLU one game in front of Occidental for fifth in the conference standings (5-5 league, 9-9 overall), aiding their charge towards a possible berth in the Southern California Intercollegiate conference tournament.

CLU is home Saturday night for a game with Pomona-Pitzer.

College basketball: Taylor leads Carroll-MT men, but Saints fall
Carroll College (MT) freshman Zach Taylor, from Duvall and a 2013 Cedarcrest High School grad, continues to lead the way for the Saints’ men’s basketball team. He did so again last night, but Carroll fell on the road.

Taylor scored 16 points and had four rebounds and three assists for the Saints as they suffered an 82-61 loss to Lewis & Clark State in Lewiston, ID. Taylor’s shooting night was strong, as he went six of 11 from the floor.

Carroll is 6-15, 1-8 in conference play in the NAIA’s Frontier Conference, and plays again this weekend at Montana Tech, in their first meeting of the season against them.

In other men’s hoops news from the colleges, William Jessup scored a 79-72 overtime win last night on the road over Menlo College on Menlo’s home floor in Atherton, CA. Junior Justin Downer, a 2010 MSHS grad from North Bend, scored three points and collected two rebounds in 14 minutes off the bench for WJU.
