is right on target
North Bend resident William Johnson, who is also a parks
commissioner for the city, recently won first place at the annual Washington
State Blue Face Archery Tournament. The competition was held at Silver
Arrow Bowman Archery Range in Mount Vernon last month.
He has been shooting for 20 years.
The Snoqualmie Wildcats 13-year-old baseball team recently
returned home after spending four days in Tucson, Ariz. The team was invited
to participate in a regional tournament that had all-star teams from
Texas, California, Arizona, Utah and New Mexico.
In addition to playing a tournament game daily, the players and
family members enjoyed the sights around Tucson and attended two major
league games that featured the Seattle Mariners. The team stayed in the same
hotel complex that housed the Colorado Rockies major league team.
Most nights found the Snoqualmie players in the game room as guests
of the Rockies players.
The Wildcat's games were against the defending national champs
from El Paso, Texas, all-star teams from Phoenix and Salt Lake.
The team starts Sandy Koufax league play in April on their
home field at Chief Kanim Middle school.
Players make holes in one
Chris Schatz, 28, of Seattle, made a hole in one on April 7 at the
Mount Si Golf Course in Snoqualmie. He accomplished this first-ever feat
using his 8-iron on the 155-yard eighth hole.
Randy Lake, 52, of Longview, shot his first-ever hole in one on the
same Snoqualmie course on April 8. Lake made the hole in one using his
3-wood on the 184-yard eleventh hole.
Redsox hold-off Rainiers
The Snoqualmie Valley Rainiers mounted a furious rally but fell a
run short in a 12-11 loss to the Mount Lake Terrace Redsox. Super pitching
by Luke Landdeck and Alex VanOeveran in their first outing of the season
held the Redsox to three runs over the last three innings. Their teammates
posted 10 runs falling one short in the end.
Some nice defensive efforts and timely hits helped shave the
eight-run deficit and knotted the game at a 9-9 tie, heading into the fourth inning.
Hitting by Zach Kramar, Nick Sheldon, Jay Lewis and
Jimmy Fleming kept the Redsox at bay. It was a great start to the season with
high expectations that the team will get better.
