College notes…..

Good Thursday morning. College action for you this morning:

Proudfoot’s homer sparks Texas Tech baseball comeback
Texas Tech’s baseball team stormed back from a 3-0 deficit, scoring three times in the bottom of the ninth to stun visiting Sacramento State 4-3 last night in the opener of a series in Lubbock, TX. A Valleyite’s bat proved to be crucial in the comeback for the Red Raiders, as senior Tim Proudfoot, from North Bend and a 2011 Mount Si High School grad, hit a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh to put Tech on the board for the first time (they had been down 3-0 prior to Proudfoot’s blast, his first of 2015). Then Tech finished things off with the previously mentioned three runs in the ninth to take the win. Proudfoot finished the night 1-4 with three defensive assists as the Red Raiders’ starting shortstop. Tech is 9-1 to start the season, and ranked fifth in the country, according to the school.

Cedarcrest grad aids Centralia College women’s hoops
Freshman Susan Kenney, from Duvall and a 2014 Cedarcrest HS alum, scored 13 points and added three rebounds, pacing Centralia College’s women’s basketball team to a 73-67 home win in Centralia last night over NWAC rival Lower Columbia CC. Kenney was 4-10 from the floor, including three completions from beyond the three-point line, and the ex-Red Wolve added a steal and two assists to the effort. She started for the Blazers and played a little over 34 minutes.

Valleyites on display in men’s hoops matchup
Local athletes hit the hardwood last night on both sides of the ball in the Northwest Athletic Conference matchup between Bellevue College and Whatcom CC’s men’s basketball teams. Bellevue won the game 76-67, and North Bend’s Anthony McLaughlin was factor for the Bulldogs. The sophomore, and 2012 Mount Si HS grad, scored nine points and collected six rebounds in 29 minutes of action for Bellevue, on a decent 3-8 from the floor and 3-4 from the free throw line. Duvall’s Jordan Corpus saw limited action for the Orcas, and the 2014 Cedarcrest HS grad recorded one rebound and one assist in his work last night. Corpus is a freshman this season with Whatcom.
