Community sports roundup: EvCC hires Arlington volleyball coach

Whitney Williams is moving from the high school to college volleyball coaching ranks.

Williams, who turned the Arlington High School volleyball program into an annual contender, was hired to take over the Everett Community College volleyball team.

Williams spent the past six seasons coaching at Arlington, which is her alma matter. She complied a 97-35 record, winning three Wesco 3A championships and earning two state tournament berths. The past season the Eagles were a perfect 14-0 in Wesco 3A/2A, 19-3 overall and finished sixth at state. For her efforts she was named The Herald’s 2019 All-Area Volleyball Coach of the Year.

Williams takes over for Dmitriy Tukan, who spent one season as Everett’s coach. In that season the Trojans went 2-10 in North Region play and 6-20 overall. Everett has finished in last place in the region each of the past four seasons, with a combined overall record of 12-106.

Snohomish native voted to NWHL All-Star Game

Snohomish native Lexi Bender, now a defender for the Boston Pride of the National Women’s Hockey League, was voted into the 2020 NWHL All-Star Game as one of the three highest vote recipients in fan voting.

Bender, who has two goals, nine assists and is a plus-18 for the 18-0 Pride, was voted into to the All-Star Game along with Metropolitan Riveters defender Rebecca Morse and Minnesota Whitecaps forward Audra Richards. All players in the league were eligible for fan voting.

Bender is in her fourth season in the NWHL, and this is her third All-Star nod. She will be a member of Team Dempsey for All-Star Weekend, which takes place Feb. 8-9 in Boston, with the Skills Challenge on Feb. 8 and the All-Star Game on Feb. 9.
