Community sports roundup: 10-year-old headed to AMA nationals

Plus, the Tips’ Gage Goncalves’ rapid rise continues, Edmonds College adds cross country, and more.

Jacob Badgley is part of the Snohomish County motocross contingent that earned golden tickets to the 2020 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships, better known as the Loretta Lynn Nationals, via the Northwest Regional Qualifier held July 3 in Washougal.

Badgley, a 10-year-old from Snohomish, is a member of SNOCO MOTO, a Snohomish-based motocross team. Facing competition from across the country, he finished third overall among 37 riders in 65cc (7-9) Limited, taking third in Moto 1 and fourth in Moto 2; and placed third overall among 33 racers in 65cc (7-9), also taking third in Moto 1 and fourth in Moto 2.

The Loretta Lynn Nationals are scheduled for Aug. 3-8 in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee.

Tips’ Goncalves summoned by Hockey Canada

Gage Goncalves’ rapid rise in the junior hockey world continues, as the Everett Silvertips center was one of 41 players named to Team Canada’s National Junior Team Sport Chek Summer Development Camp.

Goncalves, a 19-year-old from Mission, B.C., was unselected in his bantam draft and wasn’t added to any WHL team’s protected player list until he was 16. However, he had a big breakout campaign last season, his second with Everett, finishing third on the team in scoring with 71 points (33 goals, 38 assists) in 60 games.

The camp is being held virtually on July 27-31. It is one of Hockey Canada’s evaluation tools for selecting its team for the 2021 World Junior Hockey Championships.

Two locals part of WWU softball recruiting class

Two players with local ties were among the eight announced as part of the Western Washington University softball recruiting class for the 2021 season.

Jenna Maxfield, an infielder from Mountlake Terrace High School, was a first-team All-Wesco selection at shortstop as a junior in 2019, batting .407 with eight home runs.

Prestyne Kaimi-Montira, a catcher from Kapolei, Hawaii, who played at Edmonds College, was an NFCA first-team All-American in 2019 when she batted .456 with 21 home runs.

Edmonds College launching cross country

Edmonds College has added cross country to its athletics stable. The Tritons are fielding men’s and women’s cross country teams in the Northwest Athletic Conference for the first time this fall, increasing the number of sports offered at the two-year school to nine. Cross country is one of just two NWAC fall sports, along with golf, that will take place this fall. The rest of fall sports have been pushed to the spring because of the coronavirus pandemic.
