The Cougars will compete at nationals for the first time, on Feb. 1-2 in Dallas.

The Lakewood High School varsity cheerleading team is heading to nationals.

The Cougars were invited to compete in the National Cheerleaders Association Senior & Junior High School Nationals, which take place Feb. 1-2 in Dallas. Lakewood earned its invitation based off its performance at the NCA Summer Camp held at Central Washington University in July. It is the first time Lakewood will have a squad compete in a national competition.

Lakewood will compete in the Small Varsity Division, where it will perform a band dance, crowd-involvement cheer and the school’s fight song.

The team is comprised of Nicole Lesh, Amelia Belmont, Elinor Seth, Kaylee Howe, Avery Moore, Ashtyn Falor, Isabella Tabares, Alexandra Luna, Madeline Raymond and Katelyn Belew. It is coached by Kaytie Klinck and Lexi Parenteau.

Mulholland named preseason All-America

Snohomish High School graduate Jake Mulholland, now a senior pitcher on the Oregon State University baseball team, was named a second-team preseason All-American by Collegiate Baseball.

Mulholland, a left-handed reliever, has earned various All-America honors each of the previous three years and is looking to become the first Beaver ever to be a four-time All-American. Last season he was 3-3 with a 1.93 ERA and eight saves in 28 appearances.

Former EvCC pitcher hired by Yankees

Former Everett Community College baseball player and coach Tanner Swanson was hired by the New York Yankees in a major-league coaching capacity. Swanson, who was hired in November, is now the Yankees’ director of catching and major-league quality control coach.

Swanson, a native of Roslyn who played for Everett in 2003 and was a Trojans assistant coach in 2009, had been the Minnesota Twins’ minor-league catching coordinator.
