New York Yankees recall Curtis
Former Issaquah High School baseball standout Colin Curtis was recalled by the New York Yankees from Class AAA Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Sept. 6. Curtis was called up by the Yankees earlier in the summer but sent down when the American League East Division leaders traded for veteran players for the stretch run.
In 66 games with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, Curtis hit .289 with five home runs, 24 doubles and 27 RBIs.
Skyline grad honored
University of Florida’s McKenzie Barney, a former Skyline High School soccer star, was named the Southeastern Conference’s Offensive Soccer Player of the Week on Monday.
Barney scored a goal in the Gators’ 3-0 victory against Florida Atlantic on Sept. 3 and tallied the game-winning goal Sunday as Florida defeated San Diego State 1-0.
On the season, Barney has three goals and two assists. She leads the team in points with eight.
