Weekend college wrapup

Another busy day on tap this morning for you. Athlete of the Week coming up, along with youth sports news and news on Cedarcrest High School’s summer sports camp offerings. First, though, a wrapup on how Valley college athletes did to round out the weekend yesterday.

Baseball
Lewis & Clark State 2, College of Idaho 1: LCSC closed out the weekend in the Boise area with a win over CoI in a non-conference contest in Caldwell, ID. Junior pitcher Gunnar Swanson pitched two innings of relief for LCSC; the Cedarcrest HS grad from Duvall didn’t allow a hit and struck out three to help hold the lead for the Warriors, who now are 39-7 on the spring. Swanson recorded a no-decision.

Santa Clara 8, Loyola Marymount 7: The Broncos won a slugfest at home in Santa Clara, CA, with their conference rival Lions to close out a weekend set. Sophomore pitcher Reece Karalus pitched three innings for Santa Clara, and the North Bend product, a 2012 MSHS grad, got the win to go to 5-1 on the season. In his three innings, Karalus gave up two earned runs on four hits, striking out one.

LCC 8, Pierce College 1 (game 1); Pierce 1, LCC 0 (game 2): In Tacoma, LCC and Pierce split a pair of NWAACC games, and Valleyites were busy in both games for Lower Columbia. Mount Si grad Trevor Lane went 2-4 with a double and run scored in the opener, and the North Bend sophomore went 1-3 in the nightcap. Cedarcrest grad Tanner Marty went 2-5 with an RBI in the opener for LCC, and the Duvall product went 1-2 in the nightcap. Both are sophomores this spring.

Texas Tech 14, Oklahoma 4: Tech rolled to a weekend series sweep at home in Lubbock, TX, over the visiting Sooners with a mercy rule win in seven innings. Junior shortstop Tim Proudfoot, from North Bend and a 2011 MSHS grad, went 1-3 with a run scored and RBI, and also recorded two putouts and two assists defensively to aid Tech.

Edmonds CC 5, Everett CC 1 (game two, doubleheader): Edmonds took care of their Snohomish County rivals in NWAACC play in Edmonds to close out a twinbill. Freshman pitcher Tyler Reeves, a Cedarcrest HS grad, pitched an inning for Edmonds, giving up one hit, and earning a no-decision. He did not pitch the opener of the double-dip, won by Everett 7-4.

West Virginia 6, Kansas State 1: Junior outfielder Max Brown, from North Bend and a 2011 MSHS grad, went 2-3 and recorded one putout defensively for K-State in their Big 12 road loss to the Mountaineers in Morganton, WV.

Houston Baptist 6, Abilene Christian 3: ACU fell to conference foe Houston Baptist to close out a weekend set in Houston, despite a good day for Gunnar Buhner. The freshman from Fall City went 1-3, scored a run, and also recorded 10 putouts playing first base defensively for the Abilene ‘Cats.

Softball
Dayton 8, George Washington 2 (game one); GW 3, Dayton 0 (game two): The Colonials and Flyers split a pair of A-10 games in Washington, DC, with local product Maura Murphy playing in both games for GW. Murphy, from Snoqualmie and a 2012 MSHS grad, played first base in the opener, going 0-1 at the plate but recording three putouts defensively, then the Colonials sophomore saw a pinch-running appearance in the nightcap, scoring a run.
