Ken­newick High grad Justin Wa­gar was named the SWAC women’s soc­cer coach of the year af­ter lead­ing the Gram­bling State Tigers to the reg­u­larsea­son ti­tle. This is the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year Wa­gar has earned the honor. His Tigers lost 2-1 in the con­fer­ence tour­na­ment ti­tle match to end their sea­son with a 14-8 record.

Kami­akin grad An­drew Sny­der fin­ished 67th over­all at the NCAA Cross Coun­try Na­tional Cham­pi­onships last week. Sny­der, run­ning for the Univer­sity of Wash­ing­ton as a ju­nior, ran the 10K course in 30 min­utes, 22.6 sec­onds.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Kiona-Ben­ton grad­u­ates Gabby and Mi­haela Ed­wards, who are mem­bers of the Spokane Com­mu­nity Col­lege vol­ley­ball team that won the NWAC ti­tle. The Ed­wards sis­ters are fresh­men, and while they may have not seen the court very much this sea­son, they con­trib­uted in prac­tice, on the bench and as team­mates as the Sasquatch went a per­fect 40-0 this sea­son.

Emily Adams (Waits­burg) fin­ished 23rd over­all out of 339 run­ners in the women’s race at the NAIA Cross Coun­try Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Run­ning for Lewis-Clark State Col­lege, the sopho­more Adams qual­i­fied as an NAIA Al­lAmer­i­can with the fin­ish.

Of­fen­sive line­man Korbin Sorensen (Kami­akin) played well enough for Port­land State this sea­son that he was named third-team All-Big Sky Con­fer­ence last week. Soren­son is just a sopho­more.
