On this Monday…..

Back to work for a lot of you this morning, we’re sure, after a long holiday break. Here’s a wrapup from yesterday.

College soccer: UW men’s season ends
The University of Washington’s men’s soccer team fell to Michigan State yesterday in a penalty kick shootout at the NCAA tournament in East Lansing, MI, ending their season.

MSU and UW tied after regulation and two overtimes 2-2, with the Spartans taking the shootout 4-3 to move on. The Huskies’ season ends at 12-5-3. Ryan Herman, the UW’s backup keeper from Fall City, did not see action in the contest yesterday, but with the loss also meaning the end of the college career for senior starting keeper Spencer Richey, Herman will go into 2015 as the starting goalie for the Huskies. Herman, a junior now but who will be a senior next fall, is a 2011 Mount Si High School grad.

College volleyball: Mount Si grad to compete in NCAA tournament
The NCAA released their Division I volleyball tournament field last night, and for one Mount Si grad and her college teammates, it was good news.

Loyola Marymount University, from Los Angeles, earned an “at-large” berth into the field on the strength of their 23-7 record. They will be in the Palo Alto, CA, subregional, and meet Michigan State Friday night in the opening round. A win and the Lions would advance to a second-round date Saturday, likely against host Stanford.

LMU this season has on its roster freshman Lindsay Carr, from Snoqualmie and a 2014 Mount Si High School grad. Carr has not played as of late for the Lions, but did see limited action at the start of the season for the West Coast Conference squad.

Running: Valleyites compete in big local race
A large group of runners from all over the United States and Canada braved the cold conditions yesterday morning to run in this region’s top road race of the year. Among that field were competitors from the Snoqualmie Valley.

The 44th edition of the Seattle Marathon drew competitors from far and wide, and there were some nice showings from local runners. Of note, in the full marathon, North Bend’s Minna Rudd had a strong showing, clocking three hours, 52 minutes and seven seconds over the 26.2 mile marathon course which took runners around Seattle and across the I-90 floating bridge. Rudd’s time earned her 455th place out of the nearly 1,800 runners in the full marathon field.

And, in the half marathon walk, Fall City’s Patricia Stokes took 97th in that race with a time of 3:12:31.

The event attracted approximately 2,500 athletes, many of them from the Seattle area, but competitors came from a number of other places as well, including Vancouver, BC, Canada.
