Today (2/9): Baseball is back; boys district playoffs; every college hoops team; Pioneers home finale

It’a a ridiculously busy day of sports in the South Sound. Let’s get right to it…

College baseball

Saint Martin’s vs. UPS – The RAC – 11:00 AM

Baseball season is upon us in early February and it looks like the weather will cooperate. Today, Saint Martin’s makes their home debut after dropping their opening series at Cal Poly Pomona last week.

Boys basketball

2A District IV playoffs
Capital vs. Hockinson – Capital HS – 7:00 PM
River Ridge @ Washougal – Washougal HS – 7:00 PM
Tumwater @ WF West – Chehalis – 8:00 PM

Women’s basketball

SPSCC vs. Lower Columbia – SPSCC Gym – 3:00 PM
Saint Martin’s vs. Central Washington – Marcus Pavilion – 5:15 PM
Evergreen vs. Southern Oregon – CRC Gymnasium – 5:30 PM

Saint Martin’s faces a critical test tonight with Central Washington in town. The Saints offense has been virtually non-existent in the last two games and as a result, they have fallen out of a playoff spot currently sitting in seventh place at 4-8. Central sits right behind them in eighth at 3-8.

It’s senior night at Evergreen and the Geoducks will honor four players wrapping up their careers before tonight’s game against Southern Oregon. Seniors Jessica Edge and Dela Jones will be joined by juniors Maddie Graves and Danielle Swain, both of whom are graduating and moving on with a year of eligibility remaining.

Men’s basketball

SPSCC vs. Lower Columbia – SPSCC Gym – 5:00 PM
Saint Martin’s vs. Alaska Fairbanks – Marcus Pavilion – 7:30 PM
Evergreen vs. Southern Oregon – CRC Gymnasium – 7:30 PM

Saint Martin’s upset Alaska Anchorage on Thursday, can they pull off another Alaska upset tonight when they face the Nanooks? Fairbanks sits in a tie for third place in the GNAC at 7-5 while the Saints win got them back into the hunt for the final playoff spot. They currently sit in eighth place at 3-8.

Travis Wagner and Elzie Dickens will play their last game at Evergreen tonight when the Geoducks host #24 ranked Southern Oregon. The two seniors were the only returners from last season’s one win team.

Premier Arena Soccer League

Tumwater Pioneers vs. Oregon Blacktails – Tumwater Indoor Sports – 7:00 PM

The Tumwater Pioneers wrap up the home schedule of their inaugural season still in search of their first win. After a tough stretch that saw them take on the top two teams in the league three times, the Pios host fellow expansion team Oregon tonight. The Blacktails sit at 2-5 and have lost four straight games, their last win coming against the Pios in December. Tickets are just $5 for adults.
