News on this Sunday….

Good Sunday morning. Here’s a look at what’s going on this morning.

Youth Baseball
U16 Lee Johnson Invitational
Boys of Summer 5, Narrows 2: Mount Si’s Cody Perrine and Cedarcrest’s Cody Banks both doubled to pace the Bellevue-based BoS to a win in Seattle over their Gig Harbor-based rivals. Perrine had two hits on the day and a stolen base, while Banks also scored a run. Mount Si’s Brock Johnson walked twice, hit a sacrifice fly, drove in a run and scored another to pace Boys, and Cedarcrest’s Blaine Wagner added a pair of hits and an RBI to the cause. BoS will play a consolation game today, despite going 2-1 in pool play.

Washington A’s 8, Dow 2: At Bellevue’s Bannerwood Park, Mount Si’s Collin Anderson was hitless in four at-bats, but the Sammamish-based A’s didn’t worry about that at all, scoring a win to move them into the playoff rounds today. The A’s won a three way pool first-place tie by way of fewest runs allowed, and advance as the fifth seed. They need to win three straight playoff games today to win the title.

U18 Gonzaga Invite, Spokane
Washington A’ 8, Vancouver Cardinals 1: Mount Si grad Austin Hall had a hit, was hit by a pitch, and scored twice to pace the Sammamish-based A’s to the win. Fellow MSHS alum Connor Swift also saw action on the basepaths and scored a run for the A’s.

Michael’s Toyota 8, Baden 0: Mount Si grad Joe Done had two hits and drove in three runs to pace the Bellevue-based Michael’s to the shutout win. MSHS senior-to-be Miles Schimchick went 0-2, but was hit by a pitch and scored a run to aid the Michael’s side.

U14 Washington State Games, Kent
Flame Webster 14, Island Girls 0: Flame pitcher Colleen Campbell opened the tournament up for her Issaquah-based team in style, tossing a no-hitter and striking out 10 for the Webster team, coached by former MSHS softball star Melissa Webster. Mount Si sophomore-to-be Heather Hinton doubled, walked twice, scored twice and drove in a pair of runs to pace the Flame.

Hampton All-Stars 8, Flame Webster 2: Hinton pitched two innings in the circle and took the loss, allowing five runs, three earned, on five hits, walking two for the Flame; she also went 0-2 at the plate.

Flame Webster 8, Mosquito Squad 4: Hinton rebounded nicely with three hits, two runs scored and two RBI to aid the Flame to a win over their Renton-based rivals.

Soccer: Local team’s dreams of repeat national titles end
The push by the Preston-based Eastside FC girls’ U-15 team for back-to-back national championships ended in heartbreaking fashion yesterday at the US Youth Soccer national championship tournament in Germantown, MD. EFC fell in extra time to Jacksonville FC Elite of Florida 1-0, with the Jacksonville side scoring the game’s lone goal in the 110th minute. Eastside, coached by former Mount Si High School boys’ soccer coach Tom Bialek and who features Wildcat girls’ sophomore-to-be Natalie Weidenbach, sees their season end with the loss.

Minor League Baseball: Another quality outing from “Kimbo”
Last night saw the weekly appearance for Mount Si High School grad Josh Kimborowicz on the mound in long relief for the Bowling Green Hot Rods of the minor league Class A Midwest League. “Kimbo” pitched three innings, allowing a run on four hits, but BG, a Tampa Bay Rays affiliate, fell at home in Kentucky to the visiting Quad Cities team from Iowa, affiliated with the Houston Astros, 9-2. Kimborowicz, who graduated from Mount Si in 2010 and was drafted by the Rays in last year’s major league draft, struck out three.
