Community sports roundup: Snohomish grad firing for WWU golf

Ethan Casto earns GNAC Men’s Golfer of the Week honors;

Ethan Casto began his senior season at Western Washington University on fire.

The Snohomish High School graduate, who’s now a member of the Vikings’ men’s golf team, was named the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Men’s co-Golfer of the Week on Monday.

Casto tied for second at the season-opening Saint Martin’s Invitational, held Friday and Saturday at The Home Course in DuPont, with a three-round score of 11-under 205. He finished one stroke behind the winner, the University of British Columbia’s Ethan de Graaf. He helped Western finish third among the tournament’s 14 teams.

Casto shared the award with Northwest Nazarene’s Isaac Emerson, who also tied for second at the Saint Martin’s Invitational.

Sedlacek honored again by NSIC

Jackson High School graduate Kayleigh Sedlacek, now a sophomore on the Minnesota State University Moorhead women’s soccer team, was named the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference Goalkeeper of the Week for the second time this season. Sedlacek had two clean sheets and recorded seven saves as the Dragons opened league play with a 1-0 victory over Minot State on Friday and a scoreless tie against the University of Mary on Sunday. She also received Goalkeeper of the Week honors on Sept. 9.

EdCC’s Hauser earns NWAC award

Colin Hauser, a sophomore goalkeeper on the Edmonds Community College men’s soccer team, was named the Northwest Athletic Conference Men’s Soccer Player of the Week for Sept. 9-15. Hauser, who hails from Boise, Idaho, made 12 saves over the course of two games against North Region heavies, a 1-1 tie against defending NWAC runner-up Whatcom on Sept. 11 and a scoreless draw against four-time NWAC champion Peninsula on Sept. 14.

EvCC men’s soccer ranked No. 2

The Everett Community College men’s soccer team was ranked second in the initial NWAC coaches poll, which was released last Wednesday. The Trojans (3-1-1 league, 6-1-3 overall) received three of the eight first-place votes, finishing just one point behind first-place Tacoma.

In the women’s soccer coaches poll, Everett (3-1-1 league, 7-2-1 overall) did not make the top eight, but was among the five teams that also received votes.
