Athletes of the week

The Stanwood junior began his season with 59 points and 25 rebounds in a pair of non-league victories.

The 6-foot-6 Steele scored 29 points and grabbled 13 rebounds in Stanwood’s 79-67 win over Anacortes on Tuesday. Against Kamiak on Friday, Steele poured in 31 points and pulled down 12 rebounds as the Class 3A Spartans defeated the Class 4A Knights 64-50.

“He’s worked hard to develop his game in the post,” Stanwood coach Nate DuChesne said. “He was the recipient of a lot of good players around him.

Steele scored his points in a variety of ways by using an assortment of inside moves and a deadly three-point shot. Though he’s been able to score almost at will so far, DuChesne says Steele’s unselfish play makes Stanwood a better team.

“He’s very willing to share the basketball,” DuChesne said. “That’s going to become important, because teams are going to have to start double-teaming him.”

Other top boys basketball performers: Josh Olson, Mariner; Ryan Appleby, Stanwood; Elias Carlson, Snohomish County Christian; Keith Hodges, Snohomish County Christian; Cameron Rowland, Mountlake Terrace; Travis Piland, Monroe; Carson Hill, Cascade; Bryan Nelson, Sultan; Terry Webster, Sultan; Reggie Limar, Everett; Charlie Soper, Marysville-Pilchuck; Josh Bollinger, Mariner; Chris Good, Coupeville; Dustin DeKoekkoek, Shoreline Christian; Micah Jacobson, Snohomish County Christian; Roger Russaw, Mountlake Terrace; Shane Coulter, Friday Harbor; Tyler Williams, Friday Harbor; Jason Buffum, Lopez.

In two games, the senior center scored 44 points and grabbed 22 rebounds.

Page contributed 18 points and 11 rebounds to the Knights’ 56-49 victory over Monroe, a team many expect to be a factor in the Class 3A state playoff in March.

The 6-foot-1 Page scored 26 points and had 11 rebounds in Tuesday’s 52-42 triumph over Arlington.

“Those weren’t slack teams,” Kamiak coach Doug Montzingo said. “She’s a quality athlete and a fabulous student.”

Several colleges, including Yale University and the University of Texas are interested in Page, who Montzingo says can play any position.

“She’s got to be one of the most versatile athletes in (the Western Conference 4A),” Montzingo said. “She can handle the ball like a point guard. We were hoping to keep her a secret for a while.”

Other top girls basketball performers: Fauziya Muhammad, Monroe; Kayla Huss, Cascade; Lauren Coate, Archbishop Murphy; Kellie Getz, Granite Falls; Marcy Manibusan, Oak Harbor; Tina Donahue, Stanwood; Chelsey Holloway, Lake Stevens; Darcy Madison, Shoreline Christian; Andrea Jones, Jackson; Stephanie Anderson, Lakewood; Lauren Savage, Lopez.
