Saturday scoreboard, part 1…..

It is another loaded Saturday for you of youth action. So we’ll split this up into two parts. We’ll do baseball, golf and volleyball first, followed by softball and basketball.

Baseball
Little League District 9 tournaments
Intermediate (12/13)
Sno-Valley North 4, Bellevue Thunderbird 3: Sno-Valley North earned a berth in tomorrow night’s district title game thanks to a solid pitching performance from winning pitcher Hunter Tollie and a double from Emmett Tyler. SVNLL meets either Bellevue Thunderbird or Issaquah in the title game; BT and Issy meet today to decide that.

Majors
Kirkland American 15, SVLL 4: KALL rolled to the opening-game win to send SVLL into a loser-out game today. Troy Baunsgard hit a homer for Sno-Valley.

MI 11, Falls 0: Tyler Patterson led Falls with three hits, but Falls was blanked by the host MILL team and was sent into a loser-out game, against SVLL, tonight.

Redmond North 19, Sno-Valley North 1: Zach Brown had a pair of hits for SVNLL and the lone run as Redmond ran away with the first-round win. SVNLL meets Redmond West tonight in a loser-out game.

10/11
SVLL 10, Bellevue Thunderbird 8: Sno-Valley won the opening-round slugfest thanks to a pair of three-hit efforts from Kevin Corder and Lucas Costello, and a homer from Jayden Shirts. In other action, Mercer Island defeated Falls, and sent Falls into the loser-out round of the event.

U16
Washington A’s 6, Titans 0: A Mount Si player we had no idea who was on the team until this morning was part of a combined no-hitter for the A’s as they blanked this foe on Mercer Island. Collin Anderson pitched three innings of the no-no, and joined Connor Mudgett, who pitches for Eastside Catholic in the high school season, in the feat; Mudgett pitched the other four innings, and the two of them combined for eight K’s. MSHS’ Reid Lutz went 1-2 to aid the Sammamish-based A’s.

MBA Hawks 5, Boys of Summer 3: In Kent, all four Valley players on the Bellevue-based Boys of Summer –Mount Si’s Cody Perrine, Alex Adams and Brock Johnson and Cedarcrest’s Blaine Wagner – had a hit each, and all except Adams scored runs as BoS fell.

Narrows 2, Washington A’s 2 (9): The game between the A’s and their Gig Harbor-based rivals ended in a tie despite hits from both Anderson and Lutz. Lutz also scored a run.

Seattle Dodgers Blue 8, Boys of Summer 0: The Valley contingent mentioned in our earlier brief went a combined 0-7 for Boys as they were blanked in this game in Kent.

U18
Baden 7, Boys of Summer 6: Mount Si varsity players from this past spring’s season competed against one another in last night’s game in Bellevue. Senior-to-be Alden Huschle pitched five good innings for the Kent-based Baden, allowing four runs, two earned, on seven hits, walking three and striking out four. Recent MSHS grad Evan Johnson had a hit, picked up a walk and scored two runs for Boys, and fellow ex-Wildcat Zach Usselman was 0-1 for the Bellevue-based BoS.

Spokane Crew 8, Washington A’s 0: We welcome the Sammamish-based A’s to today’s coverage, as they have several current and former Mount Si players on their roster. Among those Wildcats past and present is college sophomore-to-be Connor Swift, who pitched in yesterday’s game for the A’s at the Palouse Summer Series, and was roughed up a bit by the Spokane bats, allowing seven runs, six earned, on 11 hits in four innings. Swift struck out two. Fellow former Wildcat Austin Hal went 1-2.

Seattle Stars 12, Michael’s Toyota 4: Six Michael’s errors spoiled the pitching outing of Mount Si senior-to-be Colin Brown for the Bellevue-based select team at the Palouse weekend tournament; Brown allowed eight runs, only two of which were earned thanks to the errors, on six hits, in a losing decision for Michael’s. Joe Done and Miles Schimchick, both as well from MSHS, went a combined 0-7 at the plate in the loss.

Golf
WJGA Junior World qualifier, Tumwater: Mount Si boys’ golf star Alex Nelson fired a 77 yesterday to finish with a two-day total of 155 and a tie for 24th overall in the Junior World regional qualifier. Nelson and fellow Wildcat Caitlin Maralack both competed in the event, with Maralack missing the cut on the girls’ side Friday.

Volleyball
Summer Soiree, Anaheim: Cedarcrest’s Bronwen Boyd and her High Velocity 17’s teammates from Bellevue are in southern California this weekend, and through two days of action, have split their six matches, primarily against California-based teams, in this event. Play continues today for HV.

USAV Nationals, Minneapolis: Two Mount Si athletes are in the Twin Cities for this tournament, starting up today and continuing throughout the upcoming week. KJ 16’s, with Wildcat Haley Holmberg, and Sudden Impact 17’s, with MSHS’er Anna McCreadie, are both participating in this national event, and we wish them both luck. We’ll have coverage of this for you throughout this week here at the SVSJ
