Community sports roundup: GP alum earns NWAC hoops honors

Bobby Martin didn’t make it a clean sweep of Northwest Athletic Conference men’s basketball honors, but it was close.

The Glacier Peak High School graduate, now a freshman forward on the Everett Community College men’s basketball team, received multiple honors as NWAC announced its All-Region teams.

Martin, who averaged 16.7 points and 6.4 rebounds per game, was named first-team All-North Region, was named to the region’s All-Defensive Team, and was named the region’s Freshman of the Year. He lost out to Shoreline’s Anjaylo Loyd for the region’s MVP award.

Everett, which claimed its third straight North Region title and finished the season 25-4, had a host of honorees. Sophomore guard Piol Makuei joined Martin on the All-North Region first team, freshman forward Devin Smith made the second team, and Mike Trautman was named the region’s Coach of the Year.

Edmonds placed sophomore forward Curtis Walker on the first team, sophomore guard Tre’Var Holland on the second team, and freshman guard Ki’Jan Weisinger on the All-Defensive Team.

On the women’s side, Everett sophomore forward Hannah Hezekiah, a Mariner High School graduate, and Edmonds sophomore guard Gieani Balino were named first-team All-North Region. Balino and Everett sophomore guard Morgan Marshall were named to the region’s All-Defensive team.

NWAC spring sports postponed

The Northwest Athletic Conference has suspended spring sports through April 13 in an effort to help slow the spread of coronavirus. With Washington Governor Jay Inslee banning public gatherings of more than 50 people Monday for an indefinite period, NWAC is looking into how it may affect spring sports beyond April 13. The decision on how to handle practices is being left to each member school to determine for itself.

Larson, Westmont finish as national top seed

Stanwood High School graduate Kaitlin Larson, now a sophomore post on the Westmont College women’s basketball team, can at least make a claim on a national championship. Larson and the Warriors finished the season 27-3, and Westmont qualified for the NAIA Women’s Basketball National Championships as the No. 1 overall seed among the 32 participants. The tournament was canceled in the efforts to slow the spread of coronavirus.

Larson started all 30 of Westmont’s games, averaging 9.6 points and 7.4 rebounds per contest.
