Community roundup: EvCC inducts 6 into Athletics Hall of Fame

Plus, Everett alum Jayden White named 2nd team All-American, the Snohomish Smash returns for the 8th edition and more.

Everett Community College inducted four athletes, one coach and one team into its Athletics Hall of Fame during its annual athletic awards banquet last Thursday. The honorees were:

— Erin Feeney, women’s basketball. The Jackson High School graduate played the 2012-13 season as a shooting guard for the Trojans and set a school single-seasons scoring record, averaging 24.6 points per game. Feeney also played softball for Everett in 2012 and 2013, batting .337.

— Kaitlin (Fisher) Liias, women’s track and field. The Woodinville High School grad won the Northwest Athletic Conference championship in the 800 meters and earned All-American status in both 2012 and 2013, and her time of 2 minutes, 15.5 seconds ranks as the second-best in school history. She was also a member of the Trojans’ NWAC champion cross country teams in 2011 and 2012.

— Danielle Monson, softball. The Marysville Pilchuck High School grad had a dominant 2007 season with the Trojans, batting .512 with 54 stolen bases as she led Everett to its first North Region championship. Monson was also an all-region player for the Trojans’ women’s soccer team.

— Max Whitt, baseball. The Granite Falls High School grad played two seasons as an infielder for Everett in 2012 and 2013. In 2013 he batted .400 with a team-leading 50 runs scored as he led the Trojans to the NWAC championship.

— Levi Lacey, baseball coach. Lacey revived Everett’s baseball program, restarting it in 2001 and guiding it for 16 seasons. He is the winningest baseball coach in school history, compiling a 474-223 record, winning five North Region championships and claiming the NWAC title in 2013.

— 2013 baseball team. The Trojans went 39-10, tying the school record for most wins in a season, and finished 21-3 in North Region play to claim the region title. Everett went on to win the NWAC championship, which was the school’s first conference baseball title since 1966.

White claims another All-American honor

Everett High School graduate Jayden White, now a junior on the University of Washington men’s track and field team, earned second-team All-American honors by placing 10th in the hammer throw at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships last week in Austin, Texas.

White, who was competing at nationals for the third straight year, launched a season-best throw of 229 feet, 10 inches with his first attempt of the competition. However White, who was seeded 17th, was unable to improve on the mark with his other two preliminary throws, and he was bumped to 10th right at the end of prelims, meaning he was not one of the nine who advanced for a final three throws.

This was White’s sixth All-American honor, joining the five others earned competing both outdoors and indoors in the hammer throw and weight throw.

Snohomish Summer Smash returning for eighth edition

The eighth annual Snohomish Summer Smash tennis tournament for high school-aged players takes place July 20-23 at Snohomish High School.

The tournament began in 2015 to address the lack of competitive options for players who are not registered with the United States Tennis Association. Last year 160 players from 30 high schools between Bellingham and Seattle took part in the tournament.

The tournament is open to players who are incoming freshmen all the way to graduating seniors. Divisions include singles and doubles for both boys and girls, as well as mixed doubles. The fee is $35 for singles players and $50 for doubles teams, and the registration deadline is July 11.

For more information, visit the tournament’s website.

Arlington track camp coming

The Arlington High School Track and Field Booster is offering its fourth annual track and field summer camp on July 6-8 at Arlington High School. The camp is for students entering grades 4-9 and takes place from 3-5 p.m. each day. The fee is $40. The registration form is available online.

Pickleball tournament in Edmonds

Hand in Hand is holding its first annual pickleball tournament on July 15 at Harbor Square Athletics in Edmonds. The tournament is for women’s, men’s and mixed doubles players who are at a 3.0-4.0 level. The cost is $40 per person per division, with all proceeds going toward Hand in Hand, an Everett-based nonprofit that supports children and families in need. For more information, visit the Hand in Hand website.
