Jordan Moore

Monroe | Football

The Bearcats running back and middle linebacker rushed for 206 yards on 26 carries and had 12 tackles as Monroe sewed up the Wesco No. 3 seed in the quad-district playoffs with a 37-22 win over Mariner. Moore and the Bearcats travel to Skyline for a playoff game on Friday night.

Juan Ramirez

Shorecrest | Boys tennis

The Scots boys tennis player finished up an undefeated regular season with a 6-2, 6-1 win over Glacier Peak’s Dylan Mozlowski in the 3A District 1 tournament final. Ramirez has yet to drop a set in any match this season and heads to next spring’s state on a roll.

Emma Makela

Kamiak | Girls soccer

Two nights after allowing the game-winning goal in a loss to Cascade, the Knights goalkeeper saved the Bruins first two shots of the shootout and scored the fourth, and final, goal as the Knights won the shootout 4-3 in a Wesco South tiebreaker game. The win gave Kamiak the Wesco South No. 3 seed in the district tournament and kept its season alive.

McKenzie Daniels

King’s | Volleyball

The Knights setter had 29 assists in King’s 3-0 sweep of Granite Falls in the season finale to help the Knights clinch first place and an undefeated season. At Saturday’s 1A Sub-District Tournament, Daniels had 88 assists and seven aces as King’s beat Friday Harbor, Nooksack Valley and Lynden Christian all in three sets to earn the No. 1 seed for this week’s 1A Tri-District Tournament.

John Kaltenbach

Oak Harbor | Boys cross country

The Wildcats harrier finished 30 seconds faster than he did a week earlier, placing 11th in a time of 17 minutes, 5 seconds in the 3A District 1 race and helping Oak Harbor, which took second to Glacier Peak in the Wesco Championships the week before, to a first-place finish (26 points ahead of the Grizzlies).

Rachael Lefstad

Marysville Getchell | Girls cross country

After a tumultuous week, the Chargers runner finished a place better and 14 seconds faster than she did in the Wesco Championships the week earlier in becoming MG’s first cross country runner to qualify for the state meet. Lefstad and her teammates overcame a week in which they suffered the death of a teammate — Juan Mendoza died in a car crash Monday — and the serious injury of two others in the same crash.
