Community sports roundup: Ex-Terrace hoops star coming home

Khyree Armstead is transferring to Edmonds CC after playing at Yakima Valley as a freshman.

Khyree Armstead is coming home.

The former Mountlake Terrace High School basketball star is returning to the region after transferring to Edmonds Community College, the school announced last Thursday.

Armstead, a 6-foot-4 guard who was a first-team All-Area and honorable mention All-State performer as a senior at Mountlake Terrace in 2018, spent last season at Yakima Valley Community College, where he averaged 15.8 points, 6.3 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. His 15.8 points made him the fourth-highest scoring freshman in the Northwest Athletic Conference’s East Region.

Armstead joins an Edmonds team that went 10-4 in North Region play and 19-10 overall last season to reach the NWAC tournament, but lost its top four backcourt players.

Snohomish alum Casto claims golf title

Snohomish High School graduate Ethan Casto, now a senior on the Western Washington University men’s golf team, continued his hot start to the season as he claimed medalist honors at the WWU Invitational last Monday and Tuesday at Bellingham Golf & Country Club.

Casto shot a three-round score of 10-under par 206 to finish tied for first, then parred the second playoff hole to defeat Simon Fraser’s Isaac Lee and claim the title. Casto is the first Viking to win Western’s home tournament since Kamiak High School graduate Mark Strickland won in 2012.

Casto’s win came immediately after he was named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference’s co-Men’s Golfer of the Week for tying for second at the Saint Martin’s Invitational.

Everett alum Rutledge honored

Everett High School graduate Murdock Rutledge, now a junior on the University of Puget Sound football team, was named the Northwest Conference Student-Athlete of the Week for offense for Sept. 16-22. Rutledge, the Loggers’ starting quarterback, went 30-for-48 for 354 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions in 28-24 victory over La Verne on Sept. 21 in Tacoma. Rutledge has led UPS to a 2-1 start.

Two local archers advance in Olympic trials

Stage 2 of the U.S. Olympic Trials for Archery, the qualifying process for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo, took place over the weekend at the Texas Shootout in College Station, Texas, and two Snohomish County natives were among those who qualified for the final 16 in Recurve Women.

North Bothell native Erin Mickelberry finds herself in third place following stage 2, while Snohomish native Eliana Claps is in fifth. Only one berth is guaranteed for the Olympics, but the U.S. can claim two more for the team competition based on international results next June.

The next stage of the trials takes place in April in Chula Vista, California, when the field is trimmed to eight.
