Sunday in college sports…

Time now to wrap up the weekend from the colleges for Valley athletes:

Softball
Lynchburg College 8, Methodist U. 5 – Lynchburg College won both ends of a home doubleheader in Virginia with Methodist, including this nightcap contest. Freshman Lauren Smith, a 2013 Mount Si HS grad from Snoqualmie, played in just this game for LC; as the designated hitter, she went 2-3 with a run and run batted in. The two hits, run scored and run batted in were all college firsts for the former Wildcat star. Her first college hit came in the bottom of the first, a single. LC won the opening game of the twinbill 5-0.

Central Washington 8, Academy of Art 0 – Central won the opening game of a pair with Academy of Art in San Francisco. Freshman Kailyn Campbell, a 2013 Cedarcrest High School grad from Duvall, DH’d for Central and went 1-3 with a run scored to aid the Wildcats. Central fell to AoA 12-10 in the nightcap of the doubleheader; Campbell did not play in that contest.

Army 4, George Washington 2; Hampton 7, George Washington 1 – GW fell in two games yesterday to close out their tournament weekend in Greensboro, NC. Sophomore Maura Murphy saw action at second base for the Colonials in both games; the 2012 MSHS grad from Snoqualmie collected a total of four defensive putouts and one assist in the two games, and also had an at-bat in the game against Hampton; she went hitless.

Baseball
Santa Clara 8, Notre Dame 7 – Santa Clara held on to beat the Irish and win the Irish Baseball Classic in San Antonio. Sophomore Reece Karalus, from North Bend and a 2012 Mount Si HS grad, proved to be the key for the Broncos, as he pitched the eighth and ninth innings holding that one-run lead. Karalus slammed the door shut on ND, giving up just two hits and a walk in that two innings of work to earn his second save of the spring. A pressure outing for Karalus to be sure and he delivered for his team.

Abilene Christian 6, NJIT 5 – Abilene Christian scored a weekend sweep of NJIT at home in Abilene, TX. Freshman Gunnar Buhner, a 2013 Mount Si HS grad from Fall City, went 1-4 with a run; he played second base for ACU as well and had one putout and four assists defensively.

St. Mary’s 7, Kansas State 3 – KSU fell to host St. Mary’s to close out their weekend tournament in Moraga, CA. Junior Max Brown, from North Bend and a 2011 MSHS alum, went 1-2 with an RBI to aid K-State.

Texas Tech 4, Oral Roberts 1 – Tech closed out the weekend at home with a win over ORU in Lubbock, TX. North Bend’s Tim Proudfoot did not play yesterday, as he remains out with that injury we told you about on Saturday. However, his backup, freshman Ryan Long, did well, going 2-3 with a pair of RBI’s to aid TT. Long, who is platooning with fellow freshman Matt Broadbent at shortstop while Proudfoot recovers, credits the 2011 Mount Si HS grad with helping him succeed. “Tim (Proudfoot) is always coaching us up and helping us younger guys. I’m just filling in until he gets back. It’s been fun,” Long, from Crandall, TX, outside Dallas, said in comments released by the school. Broadbent is also from Texas; he is from Cypress, outside of Houston.

Basketball
Bellevue College 76, Peninsula 65 – BC scored a nice win at home in Bellevue behind a strong effort from a MSHS grad. Freshman Anthony McLaughlin, from North Bend, came off the bench for the Bulldogs and scored 18 points and added nine rebounds – one rebound short of a double-double – in 22 minutes of action. McLaughlin also recorded a block and two assists as BC held its position in a three-way tie for the division lead in the NWAACC (11-3 league, 17-10 overall).

Wrestling
Toledano struggles at regionals – Doane College, NE, freshman Carlos Toledano, a 2013 Cedarcrest HS grad, competed at the NAIA regionals in South Dakota this past Saturday and did not fare well. Toledano, competing at 174 lbs., fell to opponents from Concordia-NE and Jamestown (North Dakota) in his action at the regional event.
