Snohomish County University women’s basketball addendum

Here’s some more candidates for the hypothetical college team comprised of county natives.

In Wednesday’s paper we ran my column on the Snohomish County University women’s basketball team, a hypothetical team comprised of current college players who graduated from Snohomish County high schools. It’s an impressive group, and I made the argument that the Snohomish County team was good enough to be an NCAA tournament team.

Along with that story I asked readers to chime in with any players I may have missed, and there have been a few. So here’s some additional candidates for the Snohomish County team (stats through Wednesday):

Samantha Romanowski

College: Denver

Height: 5-foot-9

Year: Senior

Position: Guard

High School: Mountlake Terrace

Key stats: 12.0 points per game, 3.5 rebounds per game, 6.2 assists per game

The lowdown: Romanowski has been a quality player for the Pioneers for four seasons, and this season she’s gone off for as many as 33 points in a game, so she’d definitely be on the team. And although the backcourt on the team is stacked, one can at least argue that Romanowski, as a true point guard, belongs in the starting lineup.

Jaydnn Alexander

College: Hawaii

Year: Sophomore

Position: Guard

High School: Monroe

Key stats: 3.5 points per game

The lowdown: Alexander doesn’t get a ton of playing time for the Rainbow Wahine, but she would provide additional backcourt depth for the Snohomish County team.

Taya Corosdale

College: Oregon State

Year: Sophomore

Position: Forward

High School: Bothell

Key stats: 6.8 points per game, 7.2 rebounds per game

The lowdown: Whether Corosdale should be eligible for the Snohomish County team is up for debate. In the story I said the players were from Snohomish County schools, and Bothell is in King County. However, the City of Bothell straddles the county line, and I’m told Corosdale resides on the Snohomish County side. So what do you think, should she be eligible? If she is, Corosdale is probably a starter as she’s currently starting for a ranked Beavers team.

Keep them coming. If there’s anyone else I missed, email me at
