Community sports roundup: Locals fare well at state amateur

Snohomish grad Ethan Casto places 9th at the Washington Men’s Amateur; two locals join SPU track.

Ethan Casto’s ninth-place finish led the local contingent at the Washington Men’s Amateur Championship golf tournament conducted last Tuesday through Thursday at Chambers Bay Golf Course in University Place.

Casto, a graduate of Snohomish High School who now plays for the Western Washington University men’s golf team, shot a three-round score of 1-under-par 215 to finish in a four-way tie for ninth, eight strokes behind champion Sean Kato of Redmond. Casto shot a 4-under 68 during the final round to move up the leaderboard.

Casto was one of eight Snohomish County residents among the 62 players who made the cut. Kamiak High School student Daniel Kim tied for 17th at 2-over; Edmonds resident David Hansen tied for 30th at 6-over; Jackson High School graduate and current Pacific Lutheran University player Jordan Brajcich tied for 38th at 9-over along with Kamiak grad and Western player Brian Moon; Arlington High School grad and Western player Cody Oakes tied for 42nd at 10-over; Kamiak grad and Everett resident Mark Strickland tied for 60th at 18-over; and Kamiak grad and Western player Devin Kim placed 62nd at 29-over.

Two locals to join SPU track team

Two athletes from Snohomish County are members of the Seattle Pacific University women’s track and field recruiting class for 2020-21, which was announced last Thursday.

Recent Stanwood High School graduate Charlotte Bentz will be competing for both SPU’s track and cross country teams. She won the Wesco 3A North titles in both the 1,600 and 3,200 meters as a junior, and she was a three-time participant in the Class 3A state cross country meet.

Recent Lake Stevens High School graduate Lizzy Daugherty will be competing in hurdles and the pole vault for the track team. She placed 12th at the Class 4A state meet in the pole vault as a junior.

NWAC cross country moved to winter quarter

The Northwest Athletic Conference has suspended its cross country season until the winter quarter because of the coronavirus outbreak. The hope was to begin competing on time this fall, but instead the goal will be to begin the season in the new year.

Everett Community College competes in NWAC cross country, and Edmonds College is debuting its program this school year.
