Standout wide receivers

It seems that the stud quarterbacks and running backs dominate the headlines in prep sports. Sure, at the high school level most teams are running more effectively than passing. But solid wide receivers can change a game and cause big-time problems for unsuspecting defenses.

From what I’ve seen, the best tandem is at Oak Harbor, where seniors Rodrick Rumble and Mike Bell create mismatches on every down.

They have combined for 18 touchdowns (both have nine) and are both huge targets for first-year starting QB Johnny Encinas.

Rumble, the speedster, is a modest 6-foot-3, 205 pounds. Speedster, remember.

Bell is, oh, 6-5, 215 and may or may not be related to Terrell Owens. They both make DBs look equally as silly.

And thanks in big part to this play-making duo, the Wildcats are undefeated and have wrapped up the top seed from WesCo North. Now they have a state title to defend.

Morning stars

1. Chris Cho, Kentridge, boys golf. He won his second-straight SPSL 4A boys golf championship with a seven-stroke victory at Gold Mountain Golf Complex in Bremerton. He finished at 65-70-135, 9 under par.

2. Kelli Stewart, Kamiak, girls soccer. The UW-bound senior had a hat trick in Kamiak’s 4-1 win over Meadowdale. She has 24 goals this season.

3. Kylin Munoz, Monroe, volleyball. Had 16 kills in Bearcats’ 3-0 win over Oak Harbor. With the victory, Monroe has sole possession of first place in WesCo North with one game remaining.
