Five high school seniors who participated in Friday night’s feeder game at Snohomish High School have been selected to play in the All-State Baseball Series, which takes place Saturday and Sunday at Yakima County Stadium.

The group includes Jake Taubenheim, Eric Koenig and Mike Kilpatrick, all from Snohomish, Aaron Hatch of Monroe, and Colin Samuelson of Lynnwood.

They were among the 10 players nominated for the series following Friday’s game, which saw the Wesco South beat the Wesco North 6-4.

The other players nominated were Matt Sweeney of Lake Stevens, Tylor Klep and Jake Thomas of Marysville Pilchuk, Derek Callahan of Edmonds-Woodway, and Sam Richards of Kamiak.

Roller Skating

The Lynnwood Expressions artistic roller skating team captured 12 first-place medals last month at the three-day Memorial Day Invitational in Citrus Heights, Calif.

Esha Harwalkar led the team with four gold medals. She placed first in the Juvenile B Figures, the Juvenile B Circle Loops, the Juvenile Combine and the Juvenile A Freestyle.

The team’s other multiple gold-medalist was Alicia Kacharia, who placed first in the Juvenile/Elementary C Figures, the Juvenile/Elementary C Loops and the Juvenile/Elementary C Combine.

Also bringing home gold medals for the Lynnwood-based squad were Natasha Kacharia (Juvenile/Elementary C Freestyle), Shanel Wofford (Juvenile/Elementary B Freestyle), Kyle Scace (Sophomore A Freestyle), Kelley Scace (Men’s Novice B Freestyle) and Heather Scace (Women’s Novice B Freestyle).

In addition to the 12 gold medals, the Lynnwood team collected 10 silver medals and five bronze medals.


Casey Benson of Lynnwood, 11, was named a regional all-star after his showing last week at the USA Gymnastics Region 1 Summer Blast in Provo, Utah.

Competing at Level 9 in the 11-12 age group, Benson had winning scores of 61.9 on the trampoline, 61.6 in the double mini and 52.9 in tumbling.

Next up for Benson, who already has been named to the U.S. national Jumpstart team for promising young trampoline and tumbling athletes, is the 2011 Trampoline and Tumbling Junior Olympics National Championships, July 10-15, in San Antonio.
