Community roundup: EdCC softball sets team record for wins

It’s official. This year’s Edmonds Community College softball team is the winningest in school history.

The Tritons set a new school record for victories in a season when they recorded their 36th win while sweeping a doubleheader against Pierce on Saturday. The record 36th victory came in Edmonds’ 7-4 victory in the opener.

The 36th win broke the previous school record of 35 wins, which was accomplished in 2001 and matched last year.

Edmonds has won 17 straight and is currently 27-1 in the North Region, 37-4 overall and ranked No. 2 in the Northwest Athletic Conference coaches poll. The Tritons have four regular season games remaining to pad their record, and Edmonds has already clinched a berth in the NWAC Softball Championship Tournament, which takes place May 18-21 in Spokane.

Edmonds has been led by pitcher/designated hitter Seli Aholelei. The sophomore from Honolulu, Hawaii, leads the league in wins (22) and strikeouts (196), and she ranks sixth in the league in batting average (.511). Freshman second baseman Chantelle Shimabukuro, from Waipahu, Hawaii, is fifth in the league in batting (.517).

Casto named All-GNAC

Snohomish High School graduate Ethan Casto, now a sophomore at Western Washington University, was named a first-team All-Great Northwest Athletic Conference for men’s golf.

Casto earned individual medalist honors at the GNAC Championships held April 23-24 in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, shooting a three-round score of 4-under-par 209 and winning in a playoff. He is second on the team and sixth in the conference in scoring average at 73.85 (+2.07 to par).
