Community sports roundup: Skiing standout earns scholarship

Monroe High School grad Teegan Lowe is a member of the Saint Michael’s College women’s skiing team.

Teegan Lowe’s exploits on the slopes have earned her a scholarship.

The Monroe High School graduate, who is now a first-year member of the Saint Michael’s College women’s skiing team in Vermont, was awarded a scholarship by the Far West Ski Association for her continued development in the sport.

The Far West Ski Association awards scholarships to young racers within the Far West geographic region — Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming — to assist with the expenses of participating in race training and competition programs. Scholarship criteria include athletic performance, academic achievement, community service and financial need.

The organization typically awards between 14 and 19 scholarships each year, with the amount ranging between $250 and $1,500. Lowe was also a recipient in 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19.

Silvers hire Colvin as head coach

The Snohomish County FC Silvers elite women’s soccer team has hired Tim Colvin as its first head coach. Colvin brings a wealth of local coaching experience to the team, having had successful spells as head coach of the Everett Community College men’s team, Lynnwood High School boys team and Trinity Lutheran College women’s team.

The Silvers are the sister club of Snohomish County FC Steelheads, who are the reigning Western Washington Premier League champions. The Silvers will spend 2021 playing an exhibition schedule before joining a regional league in 2022.

GNAC basketball seasons shut down

The Great Northwest Athletic Conference announced it will no longer conduct conference schedules for men’s and women’s basketball for the 2020-21 season because of health and safety concerns around the coronavirus pandemic. Initially, four of the league’s 10 teams opted to play the season, but with Seattle Pacific and Alaska Fairbanks later choosing to opt out it was determined a conference schedule was no longer viable.

The NCAA Division II conference draws players from Snohomish County. Among the local basketball products in the league are Western Washington’s Kelsey Rogers (Lynnwood), Gracie Castaneda (Arlington), Monique Fierke (Monroe), Sean Kirk (Mountlake Terrace) and Erwin Weary Jr. (Cedar Park Christian); Seattle Pacific’s Kaprice Boston (Lynnwood), Ashley Alter (Stanwood), Hunter Beirne (Kamiak) and Adrienne Poling (Edmonds-Woodway); and Central Washington’s Kinslee Gallatin (Snohomish) and Maddy Grandbois (Marysville Getchell).
