Good Monday morning, here’s the news from the SVSJ…..

Good Monday morning. We have some news from the hardwood this morning, and a few scores.

Basketball: Mount Si High School names new girls’ basketball coach
The Snoqualmie Valley Sports Journal has learned that Mount Si High School recently finished up their search for a new girls’ basketball coach.

The school named former Skyline High School girls’ lead assistant coach Taylor Bass to fill the vacancy created when former Mount Si head coach Megan Botulinski resigned her post earlier this year. The Wildcats finished last season 3-18, and with the team going into Kingco 4A this upcoming season, having Bass, who was part of a rival Kingco 4A program in Skyline, aboard can only be a help for a Mount Si team looking to continue what will be a long-term rebuilding process.

Huschle gave up six hits and walked five, but struck out three in his five innings of work.

Spokane Dodgers 7, Michael’s Toyota 2: Mount Si’s Colin Brown got the call to the mound for the Bellevue-based Michael’s and pitched 5 1/3 innings, allowing five runs, three earned, on five hits, and striking out three, as the Toyota team fell to the host Spokane team. MSHS grad Joe Done was hitless in four at-bats for Michael’s.
