Richard Short was an instrumental figure in getting Granite Falls High School’s new stadium built. Last Thursday he was recognized for that effort and all his other contributions to the Granite Falls community.

Short, a longtime member of the Granite Falls school board, received the Dave Duvall Meritorious Award last Thursday at a ceremony held in Mount Vernon. The award, which is given out by Washington State Athletic District 1, is for making a significant contribution to youth in the community, District 1 and the WIAA. Short was nominated by Granite Falls High School athletic director Joey Johnson last spring.

Short was a member of the Granite Falls school board for more than 24 years, and he also served on multiple committees in District 1 and the WIAA. Short played a key part in getting both the new Granite Falls High School and stadium built. He is also involved in youth sports in the Granite Falls community.

EG&CC raining holes-in-one

Everett Golf & Country Club was the site of a flurry of holes-in-one from Aug. 17-24, including some unusual phenomena.

First, Matt Lashua hit two holes-in-one at the course in the span of a week, first acing the 112-yard No. 8 on Aug. 17 with a gap wedge, then acing the 170-yard No. 15 on Aug, 24 with a 6-iron.

Then, two players hit holes-in-one at the same hole on the same day, as on Aug. 24 Damon Canfield also aced the 170-yard No. 15, using a 5-iron.

Schultz hits winner in homecoming

Edmonds-Woodway high school graduate Madison Schultz, now a senior forward on the University of North Carolina women’s soccer team, had a happy homecoming when she scored the game-winning goal in the visiting Tar Heels’ 3-2 victory over the University of Washington last Thursday.

In the 71st minute, with the score tied 2-2, Schultz fired off a shot from a tight angle on the left that hit the underside of the crossbar and went in to give North Carolina the victory. The goal was Schultz’s first of the season.
