Wednesday news notes….

Good Wednesday morning. Quick note from college track and field, then we have some youth baseball scores for you. A reminder as well the WIAA state high school golf tournaments start today in Spokane; in the item below this one from yesterday, we have a schedule of tee times for you for the seven Valley golfers competing in the tournaments today at both 2A and 4A.

Stevens brothers off to regionals
Washington State University men’s track and field athletes Kyle and Brad Stevens, both from Fall City and Mount Si High School grads, will be among 28 Cougars competing at the NCAA Division I Western track and field regionals this weekend in Austin, TX. The Stevens brothers (Kyle a senior, Brad a redshirt freshman), will be competing in the men’s javelin Saturday, an event they have dominated both throughout the spring college season. If either or both do well, they could advance to the NCAA nationals in June. The Stevens brothers join another Fall City competitor, Lipscomb University women’s distance runner Sally Larson, in regional action; as we told you over the weekend, Larson, a sophomore, will be competing in the NCAA Division I Eastern regional in Jacksonville this weekend in the 5000m race.

We wish all three local athletes good luck this weekend.

Youth baseball scoreboard
FCA 3, Washington Athletics 16U 2: FCA scored a run in the final inning to break a 2-2 tie and hand the Sammamish-based A’s the loss in Woodinville last night. MSHS’ Logan Nicholson went 1-3 for the A’s, and fellow Wildcat Carson Corra was 1-4 with a run for the A’s as well. A third MSHS player, Steven Watters, was 0-1 with a walk, also for the A’s.

Boys of Summer 16U 10, Kirkland Merchants 2: The Bellevue-based BoS blasted the Kirkland team last night at Bannerwood Park in Bellevue behind a double, three runs scored and two RBI’s from MSHS’ Jake Brady. Cedarcrest’s Riley Mallot pitched a complete game for Boys, allowing two runs, both earned, on just six hits, striking out one. Wildcat Justin Lutz (0-2, walk, RBI) and Red Wolve Kyle Lupo (0-1) also saw action for BoS in the contest.

Laces 5, Washington Athletics 15U 4: The two Mount Si players on the Sammamish-based A’s, David Sotelo (2-3) and Ethan “Moose” Read (1-3, run, two RBI) both were factors in the contest, but the Everett-based Laces rallied from a 4-2 deficit, scoring a run each in the sixth, seventh, and eighth innings to hand the A’s a heartbreaking loss at Cascade High School in Everett. The A’s next games are this weekend over in Pullman at the tournament known as the Palouse Summer Series.
