College football reunion for ex-Wildcats: Josh Mitchell, Cameron Van Winkle compete in OSU-UW matchup
Playing football in front of 2,000 screaming Mount Si fans on a Friday night is a thrill. Playing football in front of 60,000-plus noisy Pac-12 college fans is a dream. Mount Si grads Josh Mitchell and Cameron Van Winkle played out that dream on Saturday, Nov. 22 at Husky Stadium. Former Wildcat Nick Mitchell hopes to be joining them next season.

Two seniors, an experienced sophomore, and some talented newcomers should make for a strong varsity eight for Mount Si gymnastics. Jenn Rogers and Hailey Johnson, the seniors, have started all four winters here. Rogers is a talented tumbler who is good in all events, and Johnson has been Mount Si’s go-to vaulter.
The 4A competition may be new. The schools may be bigger. So what? “I don’t think it matters, as long as we wrestle our hardest the whole time,” asserts Mount Si wrestler Justin Edens.
Cedarcrest wrestling is a core of varsity experience leading a big group of younger grapplers. New head coach Mark Ward is still seeing things shake down. “I have some guys that, by the end of the season, will be doing some stuff,” he promised.
“Compete” is the watchword for the Cedarcrest girls basketball team, to be led by three seniors, Megan Ditore, LuAnn Townley and Avery Rich. Ditore is the Red Wolves’ go-to shooter. Townley, who swung up her sophomore year, focused on defending (and getting Ditore the ball). Rich is at post. Like most Valley varsity returners, they are adjusting to being the leaders now—”It’s really weird to not have the seniors here,” Ditore said—yet they know what they need to do, and have been playing this game together since middle school. “We have each other,” Ditore said.
