Community roundup: EvCC announces 2021 Hall of Fame class

Plus, locals compete at NCAA track and field finals, disc golf is coming to Stanwood and more.

Six athletes, one team and one contributor are part of the Everett Community College Athletic Hall of Fame induction class of 2021.

The athletes include football player Jim Linden, who was a standout offensive lineman for the Trojans in 1955; women’s soccer player Brianna (Ellis) Navlet, who tallied 22 goals and 20 assists in 2010-11 in leading the Trojans to back-to-back Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC) North Region championships; football quarterback and javelin thrower Ralph Sager, who in 1960 led the Trojan football team to a 7-1 record and the following spring set state and national records in the javelin; men’s basketball player Corby Schuh, who was a two-time All-North Region selection in 1996-98 and remains in the top five in career scoring at Everett; softball player Allie (Milless) Taylor, who pitched the Trojans to a second-place finish at the 2011 NWAC tournament; and men’s basketball player Darrell Walker, the son of longtime men’s basketball coach Larry Walker, who holds the school’s career records for assists and steals playing for Everett from 1995-97.

The team being inducted is the 2011 women’s cross country team which, coached by Matt Koenigs and led by Northwest Region champion Katie Strong, claimed the program’s second-ever NWAC title.

The contributor is Sue Grigsby, who first came to Everett as the women’s cross country coach in 1983, then spent 34 years at the school as a staff member and coach, helping revive several sports and playing an integral role in the planning and development of the Walt Price Student Fitness Center.

Because of coronavirus restrictions, there will be no induction ceremony this year. The 2020 and 2021 classes will be officially honored at the 2022 event.
