Monday scores

Good Tuesday morning. Hopefully later on, we’ll offer up your first look at the upcoming WIAA 3A state softball tournament, and Mount Si’s chances of winning it all, but in the meantime, here’s a wrapup on scores from yesterday.

Baseball
College: NAIA World Series, Lewiston, ID – LCSC 9, Southern Poly 1: Lewis-Clark State rolled to a loser-out win at the NAIA’s national championship tournament, and Valleyite Gunnar Swanson was key. The Warriors junior pitched five strong innings of relief, only allowing three hits while striking out one, and the Cedarcrest HS grad from Duvall’s record improved to 5-2 with the win.

U14: Capitols 10, SBA Wildcats 9 – Mount Si freshman “C”-teamer Alex Rendon had a pair of hits for the Wildcats team, but the Capitols had the last laugh with the victory.

U16 Art Wright tournament
North Shore Twins 2, Washington A’s 0: In this tournament game in Seattle, Mount Si player Reid Lutz had a pair of hits for the A’s as they were shut out by the opposing Twins.

Also, from the weekend:
Boys of Summer 9, NW Premier 1: Valleyites were very much a factor for BoS in their Art Wright tourney win Sunday at Island Crest Park on Mercer Island. Mount Si junior Alex Adams, a member of the Wildcat varsity, pitched five strong innings, allowing one run on three hits, striking out three, to get the win. Fellow Wildcat player Cody Perrine had two hits and an RBI to pace BoS, who also had a strong showing from Cedarcrest HS catcher Blaine Wagner, who also had two hits and an RBI, but also scored two runs to boot. Mount Si varsity player Brock Johnson walked twice, scored a run and drove in another as well for the Bellevue-based BoS side.

Boys of Summer 8, Baden 8: This Art Wright tournament game on Saturday ended in a seven-inning tiw, with Adams and Wagner each getting a hit and driving in a run; Wagner also scored a run for BoS in the contest.

Softball
U14/16 JBLM tournament, Tacoma: The Woodinville-based Absolute Blast U14 ’00 team won the U16 Gold playoffs at the JBLM Wounded Warrior event in Tacoma yesterday; here’s how things went for AbB:

AbBlast 5, NW Sidewinders 4 (semifinals): Future Cedarcrest HS player Elaine Townley was hitless in one at-bat, but did record a successful sacrifice bunt in the contest to aid the Blast efforts.

AbBlast 8, Bellevue Blast 99 U16 6 (championship): Townley pitched three innings, allowing just two earned runs on six hits, striking out three as the AbBlast held on for the win. As you may know if you’ve been following our coverage of select softball, Claire Lis, a Mount Si HS freshman, pitches for the Bellevue team, but did not play in the contest for her side yesterday.

Volleyball
Emerald City Classic: The final regular-season tournament of the girls’ club schedule wrapped up yesterday with all three U18 teams we have been following finishing well back in the field. All three – the WVBA 17’s (Valerie Koch, Cedarcrest HS) and the Sudden Impact 17’s (Anna McCreadie, MSHS) and 18’s (Lindsay Carr, MSHS and Hanna Halverson, CHS) – ended up in the same U18 playoff bracket, with the SI18’s making it all the way to the final before falling there to a Las Vegas team and ending up 20th out of 24 teams in the U18 Open division. The 17’s fell to their 18’s brethren and tied for 21st overall with the Woodinville-based WVBA team, who also fell to the Las Vegas team.

Meanwhile, on the U16 side, KJ, with Mount Si’s Haley Holmberg, tied for 15th in the U16 Open division after a 1-1 playoff round. They beat a team from Boise before falling to a Portland-area team, and the WVBA Molten, with CHS’ Makenna Wehmeyer, ended up in a tie for 25th overall after falling in their opening playoff game to a team from Brazil.
