Athletes of the Week for 4-1

Our first boys’ Athletes of the Week this spring are on the baseball diamond.

CEDARCREST – The Red Wolves’ chances of making it to postseason in 2015 will largely ride on the arm of senior ace pitcher Adam Davenport, and he showed why last Friday, as he pitched a complete-game four hitter to lead CHS to a 1-0 Cascade Conference road win over Cedar Park Christian at Marymoor Park in Redmond. Davenport thus far has pitched two games, both of which he completed, allowing no earned runs on just six hits, striking out 21. It is expected he will end up playing baseball at the Division I college level next season, but if he keeps this up, perhaps a major league baseball scout or two will stop by in Duvall and have a look themselves, maybe? It will be interesting to see what happens as the season wears on. CHS plays Sultan Wednesday on the road, in a game that should be available on the WIAA Network through TurkPride.TV. Check that website for more information.

MOUNT SI – The Wildcats have had a tough start to the season, currently 2-4 after four straight losses last week. In their game against Newport last Friday, however, sophomore Justin Lutz hit a home run, and that earns him the nod this week. Lutz’ homer came in the sixth inning and tied the game at that point 3-3. It was his first as a varsity player, and the first for the varsity team in 2015, and it couldn’t have come at a more important time. However, the Knights responded with two runs in the seventh and won that game 5-3. Still, though, the accomplishment for Lutz is one worth recognizing, and we’re doing just that here. Justin’s older brother, Reid, is on the team this season, so we’re sure both of them had a good time with that after the game.
