All-state teams, players and coaches

Here’s a link to today’s story on Johri Fogerson, our state player of the year for football. His numbers (2,545 rushing yards, 36 touchdowns) are incredible and the productivity only increased against one of the state’s best defenses in the Class 3A title game.

The Times all-state team also ran today. Here’s the offense first, then the defense:

Also here is a list of the players and coaches of the year for all classifications.

2B: Bryce Hayunga, DeSales; Mike Spiess, DeSales

1B: Jordan Hughes, Almira-Coulee-Hartline; Brandon Walsh, Almira-Coulee-Hartline

There have to be lots of thoughts. There are two juniors on the team (Simone, Heard), three players from Lakes (Schmidtke, Middleton and Kearse), and lots of Seattle-area players.

Morning stars

1. Ashly Bruns, Jackson girls basketball — “With the score tied at 67 and Jackson playing for the final shot, Bruns drove the lane, spun and made the tiebreaking layin for a 69-67 WesCo girls basketball win over Meadowdale Wednesday night at Jackson.”

2. Seamount gymnasts — Louise Baker of Lindbergh, Gwen Smithberg of Kennedy, and Nikita Ginnett of Mount Rainier all swept every single event at their Wednesday meets en route to all-around victories.

3. Eastside Catholic girls basketball — Beat Chief Sealth 53-45, giving the Crusaders their third win in three seasons. Last year, Eastside Catholic beat an Australia touring team and finished 1-19. In 2005, the Crusaders finished 1-18.
