Weekend college wrapup

Good Monday morning, folks. We’ll have our Athletes of the Week on tap, but first, let’s get some college sports action highlighted for you this morning. Men’s soccer and women’s volleyball for you today.

Men’s Soccer
Washington 0, Portland 0 (2OT): The Huskies and Pilots went the distance with no winner yesterday in Seattle, and Husky senior keeper Ryan Herman, from Fall City and a 2011 Mount Si HS grad, shared in the shutout with his counterpart from Portland, making five saves in 110 minutes of work. Herman is now 3-1-3 on the season.

Whitworth 1, Pacific Lutheran 0: PLU closed out their road trip yesterday to eastern Washington falling in Spokane against the Pirates. Sophomore Aaron Baumgardner, from North Bend and a 2014 Mount Si HS alum, started on defense for the Lutes and worked all 90 minutes with no stats of note to report.

Bellevue CC 3, South Puget Sound CC 1 (Sat.): The Bulldogs won the game Saturday on the road in NWAC play, backed by a goal from sophomore Chris Cole, a 2014 Cedarcrest HS grad from Duvall. Cole, new to the Bellevue team this fall after playing last season for Lenoir-Rhyne University in North Carolina, now has three goals on the season. We should also mention, too, that MSHS grad Alex Dolewski is on the BC team this fall, and he has an assist to his credit thus far.

Women’s Volleyball
Mount Si grad leads way for 49’ers in conference road win: Senior Sarah McDonald, a 2012 Mount Si High School grad, had her best day as a University of North Carolina-Charlotte player, leading the 49’ers to a Conference USA road victory yesterday.

UNCC downed the University of Alabama-Birmingham in four, 23-25, 25-23, 25-18, 25-16, to move to 2-1 in conference play. McDonald had a career-best 19 kills to go along with seven digs and three blocks to pace Charlotte, now 5-8 overall on the season and 1-1 on their current road trip. They wrap that trip up tomorrow with a non-conference matchup against Winthrop in South Carolina.
