Everett School District student-athletes receive scholarship awards

Jackson’s Dominic Hellman, Everett’s Lillian Thompson, Everett’s Jemyre Reed and Cascade’s Mariana Oliva-Jauregui win scholarships.

Four local high school athletes received scholarships during the annual Everett School District athletic awards banquet Thursday evening at Jackson High School.

Jackson’s Dominic Hellman and Everett’s Lillian Thompson were awarded the Dwayne Lane’s Athlete of the Year Scholarship, which recognizes the district’s top student-athletes.

Everett’s Jemyre Reed and Cascade’s Mariana Oliva-Jauregui were awarded the Robert C. Polk Memorial Athletic Scholarship.

The latter scholarship was created in honor of former longtime Everett School District athletic and activities director Robert Polk, who died in April of 2021. It recognizes student-athletes from the district who “embody the personal attributes that made Robert Polk the leader he was: teamwork, sportsmanship and character.”

The winners for both scholarships were selected out of nominees from each of the district’s three high schools: Cascade, Everett and Jackson.

Hellman, a Jackson senior baseball star, is a University of Oregon commit and an MLB draft prospect.

Hellman was The Herald’s Baseball Player of the Year last season and had another spectacular campaign for the Timberwolves this spring, batting .562 with eight home runs and 21 extra-base hits. He also played basketball for Jackson earlier in his prep career.

Thompson, an Everett senior, earned 12 varsity letters as a three-sport athlete for the Seagulls in volleyball, basketball and tennis.

In volleyball this past fall, Thompson was a first-team All-Wesco 3A/2A selection and a second-team Herald All-Area pick. She’s committed to play volleyball at Whitman College.

In tennis, Thompson was a team captain and posted a 22-2 record as Everett’s No. 2 singles player over the past two seasons. She and teammate Halle Burt advanced to this year’s Class 3A girls doubles state tournament after a second-place district finish.

Reed, an Everett senior, earned eight varsity letters with the Seagulls in football, basketball and track and field. He was a team captain in football.

Reed’s other extracurricular activities have included participation in the Snohomish County Black Heritage Committee, the NAACP Youth Chapter, a public library club and a concert band.

Oliva-Jauregui, a Cascade senior, earned seven varsity letters with the Bruins in swimming and track and field. She was a captain on both teams and has a 4.0 cumulative grade-point average as an AP and honors student.

Oliva-Jauregui has volunteered as a dance instructor, a multilingual ambassador and a food drive organizer. She has served as president of her school’s Latino club and has danced Mexican folklore. She also has worked as a swim instructor, participated in a HOSA-Future Health Professionals club, been part of a women’s ensemble and more.

The other Dwayne Lane’s Athlete of the Year nominees were: Laura Alcantar Soto (Cascade), Joey Hudson (Everett), Ronan McKague (Cascade) and Kate Russell (Jackson).

The other Robert C. Polk Memorial Athletic Scholarship nominees were: Rachel Andrzejewski (Jackson), Rani Hamza (Jackson), Zachary Holland (Jackson), Kalia Zellmer (Jackson), Laura Alcantar Soto (Cascade), John Graham (Cascade), Jacob Hahn (Cascade), Emma Larson (Everett), Camille Maggio (Everett) and Grant Mueller (Everett).
