Christina Shoemaker, a graduate of Meadowdale High School in Lynnwood, was one of four athletes inducted into the Idaho State University Hall of Fame on Saturday in Pocatello, Idaho.

During her four years at Idaho State (1977-81), Shoemaker excelled in three sports — softball, volleyball and track.

An outfielder in softball, Shoemaker ranks as the school’s career leader in at-bats, hits, runs, total bases, doubles, runs batted in and stolen bases. As a member of ISU’s 1979 team that went 25-9, she hit .371 and scored 38 runs.

One of those who nominated Shoemaker for the Hall of Fame called her “the best position player in school history,” the university noted in a press release.

In volleyball, Shoemaker was a starter on the second-winningest team in Idaho State history. Her 1978 squad finished 28-12-1 and defeated eventual national champion Utah State.

Shoemaker competed in track in 1979 and set school records in the 50-yard hurdles and 220-yard, 300-yard and 300-meter sprints.

Also a standout in the classroom, Shoemaker graduated with degrees in microbiology, medical technology and management. She’s the owner of Bothell-based CLS Healthcare Consulting LLC.

Granite Falls in pee-wee finals

The Granite Falls pee-wee football team completed its regular season with a 27-0 victory over Monroe on Saturday at Granite Falls High School. With a 5-1 record, Granite Falls earned a spot in the championship game against Marysville, scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday at Lake Stevens High School.

The pee-wee Tigers are the first Granite Falls team to reach the championship game.

Swimmers honored

Louise Moores, a freshman from Kamiak High School, was named the NCAA Division III National Swimmer of the Week following a stellar performance Oct. 22 at the New York University Fall Invitational in New York City.

Moores won the 100-yard butterfly (59.39 seconds) and the 100 backstroke (59.32), and placed second in the 100 freestyle (53.95).

Moores swims for Stevens Institute of Technology, which is located in Hoboken, N.J.

Oak Harbor High School graduate John Hu, who swims for the Stevens Institute of Technology men’s team, won the 100 butterfly (59.39) and the 100 backstroke (59.32) at the NYU Invitational. For his efforts, Hu, a sophomore, was named the Empire 8 Conference men’s swimmer of the week.
