Sunday sports notes…..

Here’s the rest of the sports action from the past two days.

Basketball
Claremont-Mudd-Scripps 60, Cal Lutheran women 43: CLU fell in the SCIAC title game last night in Claremont, CA, to the host C-M-S team, costing them a berth in the NCAA D-III tournament. The season for the Regals as a result is likely over despite a 19-8 final record. Sophomore Katy Lindor, from Snoqualmie and a 2013 Mount Si HS grad, did her best to keep CLU’s dreams alive, scoring five points and adding four rebounds in 30 minutes of work for the Regals as their starting post player.

Rocky Mountain 85, Carroll-MT men 74: RMC, from Billings, posted the regular season finale win over the host Saints in Helena, MT; sophomore Zach Taylor, from Duvall and a 2013 Cedarcrest HS alum, scored six points and added two rebounds in 29 minutes of work for Carroll, who hosts a conference playoff game this coming Wednesday against MSU-Northern.

Centralia CC women 70, Green River 35: Freshman Susan Kenney, from Duvall and a 2014 Cedarcrest High School grad, scored 12 points and added nine rebounds for the Blazers as they finished the regular season off with a road win over GRCC in Auburn. Centralia advances as the second seed from their region into the NWAC playoffs, and those start next weekend in the Tri-Cities. The Blazers are 25-4 on the season, 14-2 in league play.

San Diego Christian 78, William Jessup men 69: WJU’s Senior Night last night in Rocklin, CA, was spoiled by the visitors from San Diego; among the seniors being recognized, and getting starts, was North Bend’s Justin Downer. Downer, a 2010 Mount Si HS grad, scored nine points and added five rebounds for the Warriors, who advance to the playoffs despite a 12-18 overall record, 3-13 in league. They are the eighth seed and will meet the top seeded Hope International this coming Thursday on HIU’s home floor in Fullerton, CA, to open the playoffs.

Olympic 74, Whatcom CC men 63: Freshman Jordan Corpus, from Duvall and a 2014 CHS alum, recorded one assist in 11 minutes of work for the Orcas as their season came to an end with a road loss. Whatcom’s final record was 6-19, 4-10 in league play in the NWAC North division.

Softball
George Fox 15, Pacific Lutheran 5 (game two, doubleheader): The Bruins swept two from the visiting Lutes down in Newberg, OR, closing it out with this blowout win; CHS grad Samantha Boelter was 0-1 in a pinch-hitting appearance in this contest for PLU. She did not play the opener, won as well by GFU, 3-1.

Volleyball
Local teams with Mount Si players struggling a mile high: The weekend has not gone well thus far for two teams from the Bellevue-based Sudden Impact Volleyball girls’ club volleyball organization at a tournament in Denver, CO.

The SIVBC’s U-16 and U-18 teams have gone a combined 2-10 over two days of play at the Colorado Crossroads event inside the Colorado Convention Center, with both wins being recorded by the U-16 group, which features Mount Si’s Katie McCreadie and Courteney Carr. Those victories, one each Friday and yesterday, came against teams from Virginia and Michigan. The U-18 team, with Katie’s older sister Anna, is 0-6 thus far, with losses coming to teams from Oregon, California, Texas, and Washington.

Play in the event wraps up today.
