A big honor for Mount Si baseball star
A Mount Si senior baseball player received a prestigious honor yesterday, one which puts him in pretty good company and only adds to the postseason recognition the program has received following another successful season.
 
Pitcher/first baseman Trevor Lane was named the Gatorade Washington State high school Baseball Player of the Year following a stellar season which saw him hit .444 with one home run and 21 runs batted in, and go 7-1 on the mound with a 2.01 ERA in 48 2/3 innings, giving up just 26 hits and 13 walks, while striking out 72.

Posted by Mason Kelley - Seattle Times Sports Writer
 
Mount Si senior Trevor Lane was named the Gatorade Washington Baseball Player of the Year Wednesday. Lane, who was a key contributor on the Wildcats' 2011 state-title team, had an even stronger senior season as a pitcher, first baseman and outfielder.
 
The Wildcats, who made it to the Class 3A quarterfinals, finished the year with a 20-4 record. Lane hit .444 with nine doubles, 21 RBI and 25 runs scored in 24 games. On the mound, he was 7-1 in eight starts. He struck out 72 over 48 2/3 innings, finishing the year with a 2.01 ERA.

The Wildcats’ second straight league championship earned them more postseason hardware. Utility player Trevor Lane earned league MVP honors, while took home coach of the year.

Outfielder Joe Cotto also earned KingCo second-team honors, and catcher Zach Usselman, infielders Ryan Atkinson and Carson Breshears, and outfielder Daniel Besmer all took home league honorable mentions for helping Mount Si make state this spring.

Mount Si baseball’s state title defense over with loss in Centralia, 5-19
The dreams of a repeat state baseball championship for Mount Si’s baseball team are over this morning, after their season, and title defense, came to an end last night with a loss in the regional final in Centralia. Kelso scored four runs off of Mount Si ace Reece Karalus in the first inning, and that proved to be enough as the Hilanders beat the Wildcats 5-2 and moved on to the state semifinals next weekend in the Tri-Cities. Mount Si had 11 hits, but just could not put those together at the right times to make the most of them.
 
The scoring opened early for the Hilanders in the first. Kelso put their first two hitters on base, and Slate Miller brought them both home on a double to make it 2-0; Miller later scored , along with teammate Trevor Feeney, on a single by Corbin Sims which made it 4-0.

Hilanders' big first inning does in 'Cats, who finish at 20-4
By Mason Kelley Seattle Times staff reporter
 
CENTRALIA — In 's first year as Mount Si's head coach last season, the Wildcats won the Class 3A state title. In his second season, they started the year ranked nationally and had the pitching and poise to make another run.
 
So, after No. 4 Kelso knocked off the top-ranked Wildcats 5-2 in the Class 3A quarterfinals Saturday at Wheeler Field, took some extra time to gather his thoughts. After the Mount Si players packed up their gear and headed for home, sat in the first-base dugout, rubbed the scruff on each cheek and thought about a season that ended too soon. READ ARTICLE

Previewing and picking the Centralia state baseball regional and Mount Si’s chances in it, 5-19
Good morning, everyone. It’s a busy day here at the SVSJ, but first, we have some previews and picks to make for you today from the diamond. Mount Si’s baseball team is right now likely on its way down I-5 to defend your editor’s home turf, more in a moment on that, as they open the state playoffs.
 
KINGCO 3A BASEBALL – WIAA STATE 3A REGIONAL'S (LOSER OUT)
MOUNT SI WILDCATS VS. PENINSULA SEAHAWKS
WHEELER FIELD, CENTRALIA, 10 AM FIRST PITCH
 
Your editor knows Centralia very well, as we have family down in that area, so for yours truly, Centralia-Chehalis is home turf, and Mount Si’s baseball team for the second time in its history, and first in 15 years, the last time being when your editor was student manager and statistician for the Wildcats under then-head coach Kurt Wagner, is opening the state playoffs in the Centralia regional.
MSHS WILDCAT BASEBALL  
Your first look at Mount Si baseball’s
state opening round opponent, Peninsula
Time now to talk some baseball. The state baseball tournament starts Saturday with a regional matchup in Centralia between Mount Si and Peninsula, the #4 seed out of the West Central District. Peninsula made it to state with a win last Saturday night in Tacoma. Here is your first look at the team from Purdy.
 
The Seahawks are 19-4-1 this season; the tie came against Franklin Pierce in a non-league game back in March. MaxPreps has all their stats, you can find those here.
 
Looking at these numbers, the one guy that Mount Si will have to concern themselves with most is senior outfielder/catcher Blake Valley. This Seahawk has been on a tear this spring, hitting a cool .519 with one homer and 15 RBI’s, among the tops on the team in both categories. Valley has three doubles and three triples to his credit as well, so the Wildcats will have to work to shut him down for sure. But Valley will not be an easy out, as he has walked 11 times this spring and only struck out nine times. Add in a .597 on-base percentage and a .741 slugging percentage, and it’s pretty clear Valley will be a player to keep a close eye on Saturday.

Wildcat baseball repeats as KingCo champions for second straight season; the focus now shifts south in more ways than one
Mount Si’s baseball team clinched their second straight state berth last night, winning a close one against the Lake Washington Kangs in the KingCo Tournament title game.
 
Daniel Besmer and Connor Swift did the damage as the Wildcats scored a run in the sixth inning to break a 2-2 tie, then senior pitcher Trevor Lane shut down the Kangs bats in the seventh to lift Mount Si to a 3-2 win which sends them to the regional next Saturday at 11:00am in Centralia against a team to be determined. Swift went 1-2 with two RBI’s and Besmer went 2-3 with two runs to lead Mount Si, who also got two hits from Trevor Taylor. READ ARTICLE

Mount Si stops LW for championship, 3-2 | KingCo 3A baseball
By Mason Kelley - Seattle Times staff reporter
 
BELLEVUE — Three letters are inked into the side of Connor Swift's red Mount Si baseball hat: BIY. The letters are an acronym that reminds the designated hitter of how important it is to "believe in yourself."
 
Swift thought about that before he stepped into the batter's box with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning of a tie game Friday night. He channeled that confidence into a base hit that drove in the go-ahead run in Mount Si's 3-2 victory over Lake Washington in the KingCo 3A title game at Bannerwood Park. READ ARTICLE

Wildcats score wins on diamond in playoff action, 5-10
Big inning, Karalus’ arm sends Mount Si baseball to KingCo title game
 
A four-run second propelled the Wildcat offense, and Reece Karalus did the rest, pitching a one-hitter and striking out nine, as Mount Si won 6-1 last night over the Patriots at Bannerwood Park in Bellevue. The Wildcats collected 10 hits, led by the two doubles from Joey Cotto and triple from Connor Swift.
 
Liberty scored their run on a Karalus wild pitch in the first, then it was all Mount Si after that. Cotto led off the bottom of that frame with his first of the two doubles, then scored from there on a Karalus single to tie the game 1-1. Swift’s triple sparked the big rally in the second, as Gunnar Buhner singled to score the Wildcat junior to give Mount Si the lead. Cotto and Carson Breshears then doubled to drive in a run more each to extend the lead to 4-1, then Trevor Lane’s single scored Breshears to cement control for Mount Si. A Karalus single in the fourth added another run, and from there, the Santa Clara-bound senior did the rest, only walking one the rest of the way to seal the deal.
 
Mount Si meets Lake Washington tonight for the KingCo title at Bannerwood Park in Bellevue.

Mount Si baseball delivers another KingCo regular season title, and Lane is the main reason why
Mount Si’s baseball team, 24 hours after their most important win of the season, hit the field yesterday for the final game of the regular season, as they hosted the Interlake Saints. Beating Lake Washington Tuesday put Mount Si in the position of winning their second straight KingCo regular season championship, but coming off such a big win, the Wildcats would have to guard against a possible letdown, and thanks to a star senior pitcher, and some timely offense late, they did just that and secured the title.

Mount Si baseball scores biggest win of season yet, beats fellow title contender LW
The Mount Si baseball team came into yesterday’s huge game with Lake Washington looking to do two things: redeem themselves and make a statement doing so. Mount Si fell to LW the last time these two teams played, but since then, both teams, along with Bellevue, found their way into a three-way tie for first place, so a win would put the Wildcats back into the drivers’ seat for the KingCo title for the second straight year. Mount Si accomplished both goals.

Mount Si’s baseball team scored their signature win of the season yesterday, getting it done on the major league grass of Seattle’s Safeco Field.
 
The Wildcats scored a run in the seventh to break a 1-1 tie and lift Mount Si to a 2-1 win over Puyallup, ranked #4 in this week’s 4A Washington Baseball Poll dot com rankings. Ryan Atkinson went 2-4 with an RBI to lead Mount Si on Senior Day, in which several seniors, including Atkinson, Ross Tassara, Trevor Taylor, Trevor Lane, Justin Henak, Daniel Besmer and others from the Class of 2012 were honored prior to the game for their four years in the program.

Mount Si’s baseball team tuned up for their big game today at Safeco Field by wrapping up a 4-0 week in conference with a win last night over Sammamish. Wildcat senior pitcher Ross Tassara shut down the Totems for much of the game, then had to fight through a tough seventh inning to score the complete game victory on the mound to help lift Mount Si to the 5-3 victory.
 
Wildcat coach is pleased with how Mount Si has rebounded since their struggles from last week. “It’s a huge turnaround. A lot of teams were probably thinking, ‘uhh, maybe Mount Si is not the team to beat this year’ and they couldn’t be more wrong,” said. He then offered praise for Tassara. “That’s a huge effort and it’s just a gutsy performance from a guy who’s been earning the opportunity to do that,” the coach said.

A huge loss for Wildcat baseball
Wildcat baseball falls out of first place in league with big loss at Lake Washington
 
Mount Si and Lake Washington battled for first place in Kingco 3A last night at Lee Johnson Field in Kirkland, and all it took was one big inning to cost the Wildcats dearly in more ways than one.
 
The Kangs scored four runs in the first inning off of Mount Si starter Trevor Lane, then rode the arm of their top pitcher, Zach Johnson, to a 4-1 win over the Wildcats which not only knocked Mount Si out of first place in the league with their first Kingco loss of the spring (LW is unbeaten within the league at 6-0, 10-2 overall after last night’s game), but could also cost them significantly in both the state and national rankings, where they have been ranked very high all season.

Mount Si’s baseball team tuned up for a huge contest tonight in Kirkland against Lake Washington with a quick win yesterday against Sammamish in a makeup game from Wednesday’s rainout which was switched to Sammamish due to poor field conditions at Mount Si. The Wildcats blew out of the gate with a five-run first and rolled to an 11-0 five inning victory over the Totems in a game called early due to the mercy rule.
 
Ryan Atkinson led the way going 3-3 with four runs scored, and Trevor Lane also did damage at the plate, going 2-2 with three runs scored and two more driven in. Trevor Taylor picked up where he left off on the mound Wednesday, firing a two-hit shutout in his complete five inning effort. Taylor walked two and struck out three.

Hits were few on both sides, but Mount Si pitcher Trevor Lane came away with the laurels, as he and the Mount Si defenders held off the Islander bats in fast innings. Pitching and defense are Mount Si's focus, says Lane, who felt good at the end of his third start for the Wildcats.

Mount Si’s baseball team knew going into yesterday’s game with Mercer Island they were going to be in for a challenge. The Islanders are seen as possibly the team in KingCo which could dethrone the Wildcats this season, and they had their ace pitcher on the mound, senior Max Dammeier, who did not disappoint. But Mount Si had one of its three aces on the hill, and senior Trevor Lane, too, did not disappoint. The two of them battled strike for strike, out for out in a classic pitchers’ duel, but the Wildcats got the one break needed to give them the victory, and put them once again in the drivers’ seat for a KingCo championship.

The pitcher tried to recreate the first at-bat of the 2011 Class 3A state title game. He was asked what it felt like to strike out one of the state's top hitters.

For Mount Si's baseball program, 2011 was a dream season. The Wildcats won the school's first baseball championship in coach 's debut season as head coach. They knocked off the preseason favorite Shorewood - the Thunderbirds had two players selected in the MLB draft (Blake Snell and Trevor Mitsui) - in the Class 3A title game and completed a run that was as impressive as it was surprising.
 
In 2012, though, Mount Si, ranked No. 45 in the ESPNHS Powerade Fab 50, isn't going to sneak up on anyone. In The Seattle Times' first state rankings of the season, the defending champions hold down the top spot, featuring a top-tier pitching staff led by Reece Karalus, Trevor Taylor and Trevor Lane.

Wildcat baseball splits twin bill in the Tri-Cities, 3-24
Posted on March 25, 2012 by Rhett Workman - SVSJ
 
Mount Si’s baseball team made it over to Kennewick yesterday and left with a split of their doubleheader at LaPierre Field. Wildcats beat Kamiakin in rematch of state semifinal. Mount Si met the Braves in the first game. The last time these teams met was in the state semifinals last spring, a game which the Wildcats won on a controversial play at the plate in the final inning. And again, the end proved to be a bit dramatic, but once again, Mount Si was on the right side of the end result.

The Wildcats scored a run in the seventh to break a 4-4 tie, then nailed the final Kamiakin out of the game at third base to seal a hard-fought 5-4 win. Reece Karalus went 1-3 with two RBI’s to pace Mount Si. His double in the third scored Trevor Lane and Carson Breshears and helped Mount Si break out to an early 4-0 lead.

The Braves responded in the fourth, as Andrew Castillo tripled to score two runners; the Brave player then scored himself on a balk by Lane, who got the pitching assignment in the game for the Wildcats. Kamiakin tied the game in the fourth 4-4 with a single by Drew Oord that scored Logan Jackson.

Mount Si baseball sends strong message by blowing out defending state 4A champ Bothell, 3-13
Posted by Rhett Workman on March 14, 2012 - Snoqualmie Valley Sport Journal

Mount Si’s baseball team, as we have told you, came in to this spring season with a lot of high expectations to fulfill coming off a state title last season. Last night was their first test, and it was not expected to be easy as they were meeting the defending 4A state champs from Bothell on the Cougars’ home field in Bothell. But as a result of one big inning, the Wildcats made a huge statement about their ability to live up to those high expectations which have been set.

Mount Si broke open what had been a close game with an eight-run fifth inning, and sailed to a 10-1 win over the Cougars in a game which lasted nearly three hours. Reece Karalus and Trevor Lane were the stories of the night. The two seniors, both of whom are expected to be the leaders on the team this season, did so in a big way. Karalus, who has signed with Santa Clara for next season, got it done both with his bat and his arm, going 3-4 at the plate with a double, a run scored and three runs batted in, and pitched five strong innings, only giving up one earned run on four hits, striking out eight. Lane also went 3-4 with two runs scored and two RBI’s.

“Pitching and defense will be the catalyst for us this year and we stepped up last night when we needed to,” said Mount Si coach by email to the SVSJ.” Reece got us out of some jams early and the defense made great plays to solidify the win. We were really aggressive at the plate and I was very impressed with some of our at-bats.” READ ARTICLE

Baseball tryouts make even seniors jittery
March 7, 2012 - By Michele Mihalovich - SnoValleyStar.com
 
For a freshman trying out for a position on a high school baseball team, the experience can be nerve-racking enough. But when that team is Mount Si, the 3A Washington State Champions from last year, then the pressure is really on.
 
Eighteen freshmen showed up at the baseball field on a chilly, sunny Feb. 27 afternoon to try and wow the Mount Si coaching staff, or at the very least, try to not bomb. Head coach said after day one of tryouts that he was impressed by the freshmen. They are passionate about the game, and about being Wildcats, he said. READ ARTICLE

SVSJ preview: Mount Si baseball retools following state title win in 2011, but does so with high national expectations; can Wildcats meet those and repeat?
Posted by Rhett Workman on March 4, 2012 in Snoqualmie Valley Sports Journal
 
EDITOR’S NOTE: Today begins our series of team previews for Mount Si sports which we will have for you over the next several days as the spring sports season gets rolling. We will have a Cedarcrest spring preview coming up at some point this upcoming week, so keep it here for the latest information on what to look for this spring from Valley high school sports. With that, we lead off with Wildcat baseball.
 
Mount Si’s baseball program is enjoying its best time ever. Coming off a 22-3 record last season, which included the school’s first-ever 3A state title in baseball, and returning a strong starting pitching staff, the Wildcats recently received some national accolades, being the only high school program in Washington state to be ranked in the Baseball America preseason national high school baseball poll (#27). But, it’s a new season, and there are a lot of new faces, all who know what to expect, but the question is, are the expectations too high?

National recognition for Mount Si baseball could mean big things for its players in the future
Posted by Rhett Workman on February 22, 2012 - Snoqualmie Valley Sports Journal
 
The news earlier today that Mount Si’s baseball program got a slot in a coveted national preseason high school baseball poll is very significant, and could pay significant dividends for the program and its players down the road.
 
As we reported to you this morning, Baseball America magazine ranked the Wildcats #27 in their preseason national top-50 high school baseball poll. This poll, like the Washington Baseball Poll, the state one run by Lem Elway down at Black Hills High School, recognizes teams which, in the opinion of the magazine, and its partner on the poll, the National High School Baseball Coaches Association, are the best in the country coming into the upcoming season.
 
Mount Si was the only Washington team ranked in the poll, and joined a stellar list of top national programs in the poll, such as Las Vegas’ Bishop Gorman High; Mater Dei High down in Santa Ana, CA; Jenks, OK, High School; and Moeller High in Cincinnati, the high school alma mater of a certain Ken Griffey Jr., the former Mariner great.
