Community roundup: Bagshaw Field opens at North Middle School

Plus, two former local standouts earn weekly honors for their exceptional play.

North Middle School’s new football field is finally open for business.

The Everett School District school played its first football game on the rebuilt Bagshaw Field on Tuesday afternoon when North hosted Centennial Middle School.

Bagshaw Field, named for former Everett High School football coach Enoch “Baggy” Bagshaw who coached Everett to the 2020 national championship, had been out of use since the 2017 football season as the field was converted from grass to field turf. The partial replacement and modernization of North Middle School was funded by the 2016 Capital Bond.

North played its home games in 2018 and 2019 on the grass field at Everett Memorial Stadium, then the 2020 season was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Gunterman named Player of the Week

Lake Stevens High School graduate Gabby Gunterman, now a junior pin hitter on the Western Washington University volleyball team, was named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference’s co-Offensive Player of the Week for Sept. 27-Oct. 3. She shared the honor with Montana State Billings outside hitter Bayli Monck.

Gunterman had a monster game in Western’s 25-13, 20-25, 25-23, 23-25, 15-13 victory over Alaska Fairbanks on Saturday in Bellingham, recording a career-high 20 kills to go along with 20 digs and five blocks.

For Gunterman, who was a first-team All-GNAC selection in 2019 before the 2020 season was canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic, it was the third GNAC Player of the Week honor and first as an offensive player.

Gunterman and the Vikings are 7-4 and ranked 21st in the nation in the AVCA coaches’ NCAA Division II poll.

Hamilton earns another GNAC award

Kamiak High School graduate Donte Hamilton, now a graduate linebacker on the Central Washington University football team, continued his domination of the Great Northwest Athletic Conference’s Defensive Player of the Week award, winning it for the third time in five weeks.

Hamilton tied both GNAC and Central records with three interceptions in the Wildcats’ 30-20 upset victory over 11th-ranked Midwestern State on Saturday in Ellensburg. His picks came on three consecutive Midwestern State drives in the fourth quarter to help Central seal the victory, which was the Wildcats’ first over an NCAA Division II Top 25 team since 2018.

Hamilton also had 10 tackles, including 1.5 for loss, as the Wildcats improved to 3-2.
