Local golfer gets hole in one

Kathy Tachell of Snoqualmie recorded a hole-in-one at Mount Si

Golf Course last week on hole 11. The hole is 160 yards and Tachell used a

five wood. This was her second hole-in-one at Mount Si with her last one

sunk on hole eight several years ago.

Rainiers coast

to win

The Snoqualmie Valley Pony team evened their record Tuesday night

with some timely hitting and strong defensive efforts coasting to a 12-9 win

by defeating the Bellevue Olympic #2 team.

Snoqualmie Valley jumped out to a 12-5 lead and never trailed in

the game. Outstanding pitching by the trio of Luke Landdeck, Brad

Trombley and Alex VanOeveran, along with the best defensive performance of the

year by the Rainiers, were combined for the victory.

The win evened the Rainiers record at 2-2 going into

Saturday's game against Mount Lake Terrace #5.

"We have been out-hitting our opponents but have made some

untimely errors that have cost us games,"

said coach Warren Sheldon.

However, the team did a great job in getting the outs when they

needed them. Great hitting by Landdeck, Nick Sheldon, Zach Krammar,

Trombley, Jimmy Fleming and Jay Lewis provided the punch, and fine

defensive efforts by Matty Secord, Corey Roe, Jimmy Nyberg, Michael Keys

and Gary Conner made it a complete team effort in securing the victory for

the Rainiers.

Sheldon says that this team keeps improving with every game.

"Hitting has been our strong suit and now the gloves seem to be

showing signs of coming around," he said. "We look forward to further

improvement as we get into the middle of our schedule."
