Chaplik averaged 16.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.3 assists for the Spartans this season. He helped lead Stanwood to a Wesco 3A North regular-season championship and a berth in the state-regional round, where the Spartans were knocked out by Kennedy Catholic.

Michael Painter, G, Sr., Marysville Pilchuck

Painter averaged 16 points, six rebounds and four assists per game for the Tomahawks, who made the state tournament in Tacoma just two years removed from a 1-19 season.

Coach of the Year: Bary Gould, Marysville Pilchuck

Just two years after a 1-19 season, Gould led the Tomahawks to a second-place finish in the Wesco 3A North in the regular season. The Tomahawks emerged from the 3A District 1 tournament as the No. 3 seed and went on to beat Kennewick in a state regional game to advance to the Tacoma Dome for the state tournament as one of the top eight 3A teams in the state. The Tomahawks went 0-2 in Tacoma, but took Eastside Catholic, which eventually took third place in the tournament, down to the wire in the quarterfinals.
