Community Roundup: Edmonds CC hires women’s basketball coach

Nick Amrine leaving Stanwood High School to take over the Tritons’ program

Nick Amrine is trading Spartan red for Triton blue.

Amrine, who spent last season as the head coach of the Stanwood High School girls basketball team, has been hired as the head coach of the Edmonds Community College women’s basketball program, Edmonds announced last week.

Amrine has 10 years of experience in the Northwest Athletic Conference, having served as an assistant coach at Everett CC for 10 years — from 2005-13 and again from 2016-18. During those 10 seasons, the Trojans qualified for the NWAC tournament seven times, including a run to the quarterfinals in 2018.

This past season, Amrine guided Stanwood to an 11-11 record and a trip to the Class 3A district tournament.

Last season Edmonds finished 5-9 in the North Region and 10-12 overall, the first time the team reached double-digit wins since 2010-11. Amrine takes over for Kirsten Thompson, who served as interim head coach the second half of the 2018-19 season after Eric Ensign stepped down midseason.

Peterson selected for British softball team

Cascade High School graduate Aubrey Peterson has again been selected for Great Britain’s national softball team.

Peterson qualifies for the team because her mother is a British citizen. Peterson has represented Great Britain in the past, most recently at the Women’s Softball World Championship last summer in Japan.

Peterson, an outfielder, was one of 15 players selected for the team, which plays in the European Women’s Championships in the Czech Republic and Poland on June 30-July 7, the Canada Cup in Surrey, B.C., on July 9-15, and the Euro-African Olympic Qualifier on July 19-27 in The Netherlands.

It was Walker’s second straight NWAC decathlon championship. Last year he won with a score of 6,145.
