The Herald’s postseason honors are out in high school sports. Here are the schools, games and athletes that rose to the top in our Class of 2013 voting:
Boy athlete of the year: Snohomish’s Tanner Perry is a decorated three-sport athlete in football, wrestling and golf and was voted to the All-Wesco team in all three sports. See what’s in his plans in our Q&A.
Girl athlete of the year: Amy-Eloise Neale was a 4.0 student, captured seven state titles in the past four years, and led the Glacier Peak Grizzlies to a third state title. See what’s next for her in our Q&A.
Game of the year: Arlington and Lake Stevens faced off in the state girls basketball semifinal, and a dramatic buzzer-beater sent the game into overtime.
Team of the year: Led by nearly unbeatable pitcher Ronnie Ladines, the Arlington softball team rolled to a state championship.
School of the year: It was a good year to be an Eagle. Arlington had strong seasons in football, boys and girls basketball, and a state title in softball.
The Class of 2013 winners were chosen by Herald staff writers and editors based on first-hand observations and information from coaches and athletic directors.
