On this Saturday……

Good Saturday morning. Football, men’s hoops, and a little wrestling for you this morning from the colleges. We’ll have one last high school sports preview as well coming up, as we look at MSHS wrestling.

Football
Washington 45, Washington State 10 (Apple Cup, Seattle): The UW became bowl eligible by finishing at 6-6 this fall with the Apple Cup blowout win at home yesterday. Fall City’s Cameron Van Winkle was busy; the junior Huskies kicker was 6-6 on extra points and 1-2 on field goal attempts, hitting one from 24 yards but missing from 33 yards out. Van Winkle is a 2013 Mount Si High School grad.

Oregon 52, Oregon State 42 (Civil War, Eugene, OR): OSU’s season came to an end yesterday at 2-10, but they left it all out on the field in the second half as they roared back from a 31-7 halftime deficit to make things interesting through much of the final stretches of the game. Beaver C Josh Mitchell, a senior from North Bend and 2012 Mount Si HS grad, started his final college game at center for OSU, while his Beaver teammate and brother, redshirt freshman Nick, a 2014 MSHS’er, did not see action at QB after having seen it for the previous four games.

Basketball
Adams State 89, Carroll-MT men 74: At the Dickinson State tournament in North Dakota, the Saints fell to the Colorado team as junior Zach Taylor, from Duvall and a 2013 Cedarcrest HS grad, was held to just nine points on 3-8 from the floor, including one three-pointer. He also had three rebounds, four assists and a steal for Carroll in 33 minutes of work.

Wrestling
CHS grad makes move in college wrestling, and it’s a step up: 2013 Cedarcrest High School grad Carlos Toledano, from Duvall, has found a new home in college wrestling, and it’s a big move for him.

Toledano, who had spent his first two college seasons with Doane College, an NAIA school in Nebraska, transferred in the offseason to Minot State University in North Dakota, which is an NCAA Division II program. And he’s already seen some action with his new team.

Toledano, a junior this fall, finished in fifth place in the 165-pound weight class at the Finn Grinaker Open in Moorhead, MN, November 21 in the most recent competition Minot participated in. He opened the season on November 14 at the North Dakota State meet in Fargo, ND, but did not place despite recording one win in that tournament, also at 165.

Toledano and his Minot teammates will be in action next weekend at a tournament in Great Falls, MT. He is not the only CHS grad to wrestle collegiately this season; freshman Connor Lemons, who graduated from Cedarcrest back in June, is on the roster this season at North Idaho College, a community college in Coeur D’Alene, ID. Lemons has yet to see action with that squad.
