Athletes of the Week

The senior tailback rushed 22 times for 187 yards and scored three touchdowns in a 27-10 victory over Cascade. It was Hall’s sixth straight 100-yard game, giving him more than 900 yards this season.

“He’s a hard-running back,” said Edmonds-Woodway coach John Gradwohl, “and our offensive line had a good game. In fact, they’re haing a good year and he has a good gel going with those guys.”

Gradwohl said Hall is the focus of every opposing defense, but they can’t concentrate totally on stopping the 5-11, 190-pounder.

“We have a good fullback (Chris Stokes), too,” Gradwohl said. “They can’t key on (Hall) too much because we have a fullback with breakaway ability.”

Gradwohl said Hall just gets better every week.

“He’s strong. He has speed and quickness. He loves contact. He’s the full-meal deal,” Gradwohl said.

Other top football performers: Brian Price, Everett; Josh Rodland, Snohomish; Tony Hall, Oak Harbor; Nick Nelson, Jackson; Masaki Matsumoto, King’s; Kris Kazen, Lakewood.

The junior swimmer set a school record of 5:00.32 in the 500-yard freestyle in a 139-47 dual-meet victory over Sehome. She also swam a Class 4A state meet qualifying time in the 50 freestyle and swam on two winning relays in that meet and swam state qualifying times in the 200 freestyle and 100 breaststroke and swam on two winning relays in a 139-44 victory over Cascade. Chandler has posted state qualifying times in all nine individual events and has the year’s fastest time in the state in several events.

Snohomish coach John Pringle said Chandler has gone under five minutes in the 500 freestyle before but not in a high school meet. He said it’s not unheard of in high school, last year’s state champion in the event, Jackie Lobdell of Gig Harbor, won in 4:57.08. Chandler was second in 5:02.52. But it is rare.

“I thinks she wants to be better than five on a regular basis, not only here and there,” Pringle said.

Pringle said the amazing thing about Chandler’s performances last week was they came at a time when the whole team was tired.

“We’re getting tougher and that’s a good sign,” Pringle said.
