Community roundup: Everett 3on3 hoops tourney returns in July

Plus, RaeQuan Battle enters the NCAA transfer portal, Sami Reynolds earns Pac-12 Player of the Week honors and much more.

The Everett 3on3 is back for another run.

The street basketball tournament, which took over the streets of downtown Everett for a weekend last July, will be holding its second edition on July 15-16, with the event centered at the intersection of Colby Avenue and Hewitt Avenue.

Last year the Everett 3on3, which looks to emulate Spokane’s annual Hoopfest extravaganza, drew 200 teams of four, with 28 courts set up along Colby and Wetmore Avenues. The teams were broken down into 29 divisions based on age, gender, height and ability, and the event also featured dunk and 3-point contests.

Registration is now open on the Everett 3on3 website. The team fee between now and June 19 is $140-210, depending on division, and it increases by $30 from June 20-July 3. The winning teams in the Men’s Elite Division and Women’s Elite Division receive a $1,000 prize.

Battle enters transfer portal

Marysville Pilchuck High School graduate RaeQuan Battle, who had a breakout junior season with the Montana State University men’s basketball team, has entered the NCAA transfer portal.

Battle, who led the Bobcats in scoring at 17.0 points per game, was named the Big Sky Tournament MVP and scored 26 in Montana State’s NCAA Tournament defeat against Kansas State. He made his announcement on Instagram, saying: “I’m going to enter the transfer portal to explore my options with the chance of coming back to Bozeman! I believe it’s the right thing to do.”

Montana State is undergoing a coaching change as Danny Sprinkle stepped down to become the head coach at Utah State. Battle also raised his stock with his postseason play. Among the schools that have reportedly had contact with Battle are Alabama, UCLA, Texas and Kansas State, as well as Sprinkle’s new school Utah State.

Battle already transferred once during his college career, moving to Montana State after two seasons at Washington.

Reynolds named Pac-12 Player of the Week

Snohomish High School graduate Sami Reynolds, now a fifth-year outfielder on the University of Washington softball team, was named the Pac-12 Player of the Week for April 3-9.

Reynolds batted .625 with two home runs and seven RBI as the Huskies swept a three-game series against California. For the season Reynolds is batting .368 with seven homers and 29 RBI for Washington, which is 31-9 and ranked No. 9 in the nation.

Three Silvertips listed in NHL draft rankings

Three Everett Silvertips were among the players listed in NHL Central Scouting’s final rankings for the 2023 NHL draft.

Defenseman Kaden Hammell (eight goals, 18 assists), who hails from Langley, B.C., was ranked 95th among North American skaters. Center Austin Roest (32 goals, 46 assists), who’s from Coldstream, B.C., and was passed over in last year’s draft, was ranked 113th. Their ranking projects them to the later rounds.

Goaltender Tim Metzger (4-5-0-0, 3.35 goals against average, .888 save percentage), who’s from Zurich, Switzerland, was ranked 31st among North American goalies, which makes him a bubble candidate.

The NHL draft is June 28-29 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Reeck earns GNAC weekly honor

Lake Stevens High School graduate Ashley Reeck, now a first year on the Western Washington University women’s track and field team, was named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Women’s Track Athlete of the Week for April 3-9.

Reeck won the steeplechase at the Emilie Mondor Invitational on April 8 in Burnaby, B.C., in a time of 11 minutes, 5.35 seconds. The time was the second-best in GNAC this year and just missed the NCAA Division II Championships provisional qualifying time of 11:01.26.

Bol joins EdC men’s basketball

Former Edmonds-Woodway High School star Mutdung Bol is joining the Edmonds College men’s basketball team.

Bol, who graduated from Edmonds-Woodway in 2020, was a two-time All-Area selection who originally signed to play at Eastern Washington University, but never played for the Eagles. As a senior with the Warriors the 6-foot-3 guard averaged 18 points, seven rebounds and five assists per game.

Studioso named NWAC Player of the Week

Meadowdale High School graduate Kelci Studioso, now a sophomore shortstop on the Bellevue College softball team, was named the Northwest Athletic Conference Softball Hitter of the Week for March 27-April 2. Studioso went 12-for-19 with four doubles, two triples, four home runs, 11 runs, nine RBI and seven stolen bases as the Bulldogs went 4-0.

Studioso leads NWAC in batting average (.590), runs (49) and steals (39) for a Bellevue team that is 24-2.
