Goodwin signs with Huskies

Dylan Goodwin was too good for the University of Washington to pass up.

Goodwin, a senior golfer from Kamiak High School, signed a NCAA Letter of Intent to play for the University of Washington men’s golf team.

In a Wednesday press release announcing the program’s four early-period signees, Washington coach Matt Thurmond said, “I’m really excited about the talent and character that we’ve found in this class. I believe all will be great Huskies and will help our program win.”

Added Thurmond, “I had intended to only bring in one or two (athletes) in this class, but I liked each of these guys so much that we had to find a way to get them into our program.”

This year Goodwin was the Pacific Northwest Golf Association Junior Boys runner-up and he tied for 24th place at the Class 4A state tournament, helping Kamiak win the team championship.

Goodwin finished second at the U.S. Junior Amateur qualifying tourney and was on Washington’s Hogan Cup Team.

“Dylan has excellent all-round skills,” Thurmond said. “I’m really excited to see what he will do in college because I think his game will translate very well to this level.”

Jens Bracht of Lake Forest Park also signed with Washington. Bracht placed second for Shorecrest in last spring’s 3A state tourney and beat Goodwin in match play to win the PNGA Junior Boys title.

E-W’s Scott signs with University of Portland baseball

Edmonds-Woodway outfielder/first baseman Kramer Scott signed last week with the University of Portland baseball program. Scott earned first-team all-state honors as a junior, when he had a school-record batting average of .513.

“Kramer is a sweet-swinging, left-handed hitter who can play the outfield and first base,” Portland coach Chris Sperry said in a release posted on the team Web site.

Kramer, who also earned All-Wesco South and Herald All-Area first team honors after last season, said he picked Portland because he’ll have a good chance to play early in his career. The 6-foot, 190-pound Scott said he wants to continue to improve and ultimately exceed Portland’s expectations.

Said Scott, “I want to be better than they expect me to be.”

Snohomish keeper picks Seattle University

Goverde, a goalkeeper, verbally committed this past weekend to Seattle University. This fall Goverde, The Herald’s All-Area first team keeper, helped lead Snohomish to the 4A state quarterfinals and a 16-2-1 record. Goverde tallied shutouts in the Panthers’ first 10 games.
