Community roundup: Arlington’s Roskelley wins state decathlon

Plus, EvCC softball standout Kaylie Hoskins is named an NWAC All-American and more.

Jaden Roskelley ran — and jumped and threw — away from the competition.

The Arlington High School product lapped the field in winning the boys decathlon at the 49th Washington State Combined Events Championship held last weekend at Arlington High School.

Roskelley dominated the first day, placing first in three of the five events as he won the long jump, shot put and high jump. His leap of 23 feet, 4 inches in the long jump set a new meet record. He finished with a total of 6,544 points, which was more than 500 ahead of the rest of the field.

In the girls heptathlon, Emerald Ridge’s JaiCieonna Gero-Holt was even more dominant. Gero-Holt won four of the seven events — the 100-meter hurdles, shot put, high jump and long jump — to finish with a score of 4,941 points, which was more than 600 ahead of the field.

EvCC’s Hoskins named All-American

Everett Community College softball pitcher Kaylie Hoskins was one of 13 players named to the National Fastpitch Coaches Association’s (NFCA) Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC) All-American team, and she was also named the NFCA’s NWAC Pitcher of the Year. Hoskins, a graduate of Lake Stevens High School, had a dominating season in the circle, going 10-1 while leading NWAC in both earned-run average (2.06) and strikeouts (173). Her 173 strikeouts came in just 85 innings pitched, and her strikeout total was more than double any other pitcher in NWAC. She led the Trojans to their first North Region title since 2007.
