The parents of Mark Hilde and Gerik Baxter continue to pay tribute to their sons and honor outstanding student-athletes at Edmonds-Woodway High School.
Trevor Swartz and Quinn Naughtin received the 2009 Hilde/Baxter Scholarship, awarded annually to an Edmonds-Woodway baseball player. E-W head baseball coach Dan Somoza presented the award to Swartz, a catcher, and Naughtin, an outfielder, in late May. Both players signed with Skagit Valley College.
The amount of the Hilde/Baxter scholarship is $1,207, a tribute to Hilde and Baxter, whose uniform numbers were 12 and 7, respectively. Swartz and Naughtin will split the 2009 scholarship.
