Rome to host discus clinic

Jarred Rome, a two-time Olympian and U.S. national champion in the discus who grew up in Marysville, will host his second annual throws clinic from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday at Marysville-Pilchuck High School.
Also participating in the event will be Duncan Atwood, another two-time U.S. Olympian and three-time national champion in the javelin.
Clinic fees are $90 for athletes and $100 for coaches. For groups of five or more from the same school, the fee is $70 for athletes.
Athletes and coaches will learn techniques and training methods for the discus, shot and javelin, and will receive an instructional handbook. There also also will be a question and answer period for both athletes and coaches.
Athletes should bring running shoes, throwing shoes, implements (discus, shot or javelin), workout clothes, paper, pen, lunch and snacks.
Check-in is at 9 a.m., and there will be a one-hour lunch break.

Guthrie honored
Whitworth women's basketball player Emily Guthrie has been named to the All-Northwest Conference second team.
Guthrie, a senior guard from Snohomish, averaged 9.8 points and 4.8 points in 19 games before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Even though she missed the Pirates' final nine games, she finished as the team leader in 3-point field goals with 39.
"I'm so happy that people recognized Emily's contribution to our team," Whitworth coach Helen Higgs said in a statement released by the school.
Whitworth posted a 21-7 record this season and earned a berth in the NCAA Division III national tournament. The Pirates' season ended with a 72-65 first-round loss to Emory University on Friday in Atlanta.
