There’s more to Jackson than just its backcourt

When he wasn’t draining one of his three 3-pointers or snatching one of his game-high seven steals in Friday’s 61-50 win at Shorecrest, Jackson senior forward Mike Wishko anchored an undersized frontline that posted a 16-6 edge in offensive rebounds. With fellow ‘bigs’ Austin O’Keefe (6.4 ppg), a 6-4 junior, and 6-5 senior star quarterback Andy…

Snohomish’s top scorer is expected to return

All Snohomish boys basketball coach Len Bone is asking for as the WesCo North season winds down is a full squad. Senior guard Blane Ortiz (15.6 ppg), who missed the first six games because of grades, missed a pivotal game Tuesday against Cascade too. Without the North’s seventh-leading scorer, the Panthers (9-7, 8-4) fell 62-60 to…

Froland switches commitment to Colorado State

Glacier Peak senior defensive tackle John Froland recently switched his commitment from Northwestern to Colorado State. Three factors tipped the scale for the 6-5, 250-pounder: the outdoor scene, the small-town feel (in comparison with Chicago) and a particular major offered (that’s not offered at Northwestern). “I went out there and it was like, ‘Whoa’,” said Froland about…

Sam’s basketball career at Jackson could be over

Chanel Sam, a senior wing for No. 10 Jackson, did indeed break her right hand in Wednesday’s 68-52 home loss to Edmonds-Woodway as orginally suspected. Jackson coach Jeannie Thompson said an X-ray revealed “a break in the middle of her hand” and that she’ll “get some pins put in there during her surgery (next) Wednesday.” Her…

Panthers go Old School in Old Gym’s final year

Snohomish wrestling coach Rob Zabel was seated on his home couch, beside his 3-year-old daughter, watching ESPN SportsCenter highlights last week. “There were these two hockey guys just duking it out, and she asked, ‘Dad, why are those guys wrestling?’,” recalls Zabel. “And I thought, ‘That’s what Snohomish wrestling is — just two guys duking…

Snohomish senior is the epitome of scholar athlete

One of the most decorated student athletes of the 21st century at Snohomish is in the final stretch of his high school career. Luke Perry is a four-year letter winner in wrestling and a three-year letter winner in football (where he started at quarterback and defensive back as a captain this year). He also has a…
