As the rain splashed down on the runners during the final race of the day, Susanna Smith gave it her all from start to finish. Sporting a multi-colored raincoat, she pumped her arms and legs to the hilt and closed out last Saturday’s Can-Do kids’ dashes with a smile that received a cheer from the crowd. Her dad, Eric, noted that his special-needs girl also participated in the 1-mile walk at the fourth annual Northwest Special Families (NSF) and Northshore YMCA event that took place at the Seattle Times building in Bothell. Also on tap were a 5K run/walk, a 10K run and a 1K youth run. “We’re so proud of Susanna, because she ‘can do’ it — she gets up every day and does a great job with all the things that she has to do,” said Eric of Edmonds. “It was good,” said Susanna, 9, who was joined at the event by her sister, Chloe, 12, who tackled the 5K and kids’ dash, as well. NSF’s Natalia Bynum estimated that more than 1,000 people participated in the event (1,442 registered), which raises

Bynum said they are on target to raise more than $22,000. “It was great to see everybody coming out in the rain. Watching people coming across the finish line, it’s really a community event celebrating what we all can

do,” Bynum said. Over at the Northshore Wranglers booth, Judy Gratton said the people with the nonprofit special recreation and services program backed all the runners and walkers during the event, which featured people with and without disabilities. “It’s gone very well — I am so proud of them,” Gratton said. “As the mother of someone with disabilities, I know how hard it is just to do day to day (tasks). So especially to bring those individuals out on a freezing-cold raining day and get them to walk or run this sort of thing is really a miracle.” Added Glennona Hoover of Woodinville, who cut tags off runners’ shoes as they concluded the 5K: “It’s just thrilling to see all that they do in order to support each other — it’s wonderful.” [ more CAN-DO page 7 ]

Actors Edi Zanidache, left, and Edward Furlong joke around while filming at Bastyr University last month. Mirror Images also shot a scene for “Matt’s Chance” in Bothell. ANDY NYSTROM, Bothell-Kenmore Reporter

Lights, camera, action: Actors hit the Northshore area BY ANDY NYSTROM anystrom@bothell-reporter.com

While the director and camera crew set up a scene, Edward Furlong brushed back his hair and gazed upward at the striking stainedglass windows inside the Bastyr University chapel in Kenmore. The actor may have been on hand to film scenes for Seattle-based Mirror Images’ “Matt’s Chance” on March 22, but the 34-year-old star of “Terminator 2” and “American History X” in the 1990s was fixated on the 54-year-old European-style building’s offerings for a few minutes before shooting resumed. “Quiet on the set” and “cue, dolly,” director Nicholas Gyeney said for the umpteenth time that day as the 30-person crew hushed and one of them gently pushed the cameraman — set on the wheeled contraption — toward Furlong and co-star Edi Zanidache on the altar. Furlong, who plays cowboy Matt, consulted with Zanidache, a priest, about what to do after he discovers his girlfriend is a cheater. They ran through their lines as the camera rolled. After a few tries at the altar

scene, they nailed it. And the silence that once ruled over the chapel was blanketed with a round of applause from the crew. Success. “They’ve hit it spot on every time, which is incredible. I mean, their lines are just perfect and (we) can’t ask for a better eight minutes than what they gave us,” said producer Nate Riley about the two actors. (Furlong also filmed a bank-robbery scene with Seattle Seahawk Marshawn Lynch in Bothell recently.) Samantha Jones, the producer’s assistant, intern manager and marketer for the film, said that Day 3 of the film’s 15 days of shooting in Seattle was going well as the hours rolled on during the one day of shooting at Bastyr. “It’s an independent film — gotta get in, get out,” she said of the two-week schedule, which featured Lee Majors, Margot Kidder and Gary Busey acting at Seattle spots like the Acme Barber Shop, Dante’s bar and more. The Bastyr scenes provided an interesting exchange of ideas between cowboy and priest, Jones said. [ more MOVIE page 8]

The Associated Student Body leadership for Inglemoor, Bothell, Woodinville and Secondary Academy for Success (SAS) schools received a unique opportunity on March 27 when they attended a Northshore school-board forum at the district offices in Bothell. During the forum, students discussed the district’s policies as it relates to four-year high schools; harassment, intimidation and bullying; technology; community service and the rigor and relevance of school curricula. “The school board wants to hear from kids,” Superintendent Larry Francois said. “They hear a lot from adults. They hear a lot from administrators. They hear a lot from teachers… and the one group they don’t often hear a lot from is students, and really, that’s why we have the school system — it’s to serve students.” The first of its kind, the

forum was intended to form a bond with the school board and the students. “There’s lots of decisions that get made at the district,” board member Todd Banks said. “Its nice to touch base with the kids to find out how decisions are affecting them and if we’re achieving what we want to achieve.” First on the day’s agenda was the four-year high school. The Northshore School District is one of three districts in the state that still maintains a three-year high school. In light of this, the school board is now listening to discussions on whether Northshore should adopt the four-year model. “Ninth-graders in the high school would be a little bit better prepared and more informed about such topics as post-secondary careers and colleges,” Woodinville junior Matt Spencer said. The rest of the panel agreed with Spencer’s sentiments. By adopting the four-year model, “we can have everyone on the same equal level

of togetherness because we’re a community and we need to act that way,” SAS freshman and leadership council member Kobi Robinson said. “It’s a financial and a logistical issue more than a philosophical issue,” board member Sandy Hayes said. “We have two high schools that do not have space for 500 more kids. We cannot move a whole grade level into Bothell or Inglemoor.” However, putting an end to harassment, intimidation and bullying is well within the districts financial and logistical parameters. “We go into classrooms and talk to students,” Inglemoor senior and ASB assistant coordinator Ellie Swanson said. “It’s a lot more effective to spread a message student to student versus administration to student. Students can relate, and it seems more personal.”

Kenmore’s Short honored at Red Cross Heroes breakfast By SAMANTHA PAK Redmond Reporter

Wheaties may be the breakfast of champions, but the breakfast of heroes was in the spotlight on March 27 at Seattle’s Washington State Convention Center as the American Red Cross recognized King County individuals who have gone above and beyond the duties of the everyday citizen. Stephanie Schoo, regional communications director for Red Cross, said people were honored for a number of different things, but their actions all personified the Red Cross’ mission: neighbors helping neighbors when they need it most. “Some are pretty dramatic and literally life saving and some are working day in, day out to help make our community a safer, stronger place,” she said about the acts and individuals who were honored at the 16th Annual Heroes Breakfast. “They’re doing it selflessly. They’re not doing it for themselves.

Kenmore resident Todd Short, left, with Don Trombly. Short assisted Trombly after he lost consciousness and stopped breathing. Courtesy photo They’re doing it to help other people.” At the event — which was also a fund-raiser for the Red Cross — Redmond Fire Department (RFD) assistant fire marshal Todd Short of Kenmore received the Medical Rescue Award.

OFF-DUTY CALL

Short was at the Great Harvest Bread Company in Redmond when a man on a cell phone entered the bakery demanding the address. Short said the other man was aggressive

and something about the situation didn’t “settle well” with him. So Short looked out to the parking lot and saw the man on the phone and a woman standing outside of a car with an open driver-side door. Inside was a man slumped over the steering wheel. Short rushed outside and immediately began assisting the unconscious man, who was Don Trombly of Issaquah. The woman was his wife, Dixie Trombly. Once Short and the other man, who had

been on the phone with a 911 dispatcher, got Don out of the car, Short began chest compressions. Within a minute, Don began regaining consciousness, which was a great sign as it usually takes longer, Short said. Although Short now works on the fire prevention side of the RFD, he began as a firefighter and has maintained his medical training, which he said just kicked in while assisting Don. Within minutes, an ambulance arrived and Don was taken to the hospital, where he underwent triple bypass surgery. Before the breakfast, Short had spoken with the Tromblys on the phone and met them once before while shooting a video for the event. He said before meeting the couple, he didn’t feel he deserved the title of “hero.” It was just a case of being in the right place at the right time that Friday morning, which was pure chance as Short usually doesn’t work Fridays. He said he was in Redmond because he went into

work briefly for a meeting and had been off duty when he assisted Don. Short said this feeling of outside factors controlling the situation was a common sentiment among the other honorees at the breakfast. “We didn’t do anything that anyone else would’ve done,” Short said. However, once he met the Tromblys and saw how his actions had impacted the couple, Short began to understand things from their perspective. During his speech at the breakfast, he said the reward and satisfaction he has experienced “runs deep and is lasting.”

A WORTHY CAUSE

Short said after attending the breakfast he was impressed by the Red Cross and all the organization does. One thing he pointed out was how 91 cents of every dollar donated goes to people who need it — the remaining 9 cents goes toward administration and overhead,

which he said is commendable for such a large organization. Schoo said one of main services the Red Cross offers is local disaster relief. These disasters are usually house fires and she said while donations have remained at about the same level, the level of support people need has increased due to the down economy. The money from the breakfast, which usually brings in about 800 people, goes toward general Red Cross programs and services, which in addition to disaster relief, include first aid, CPR and lifeguard training. This year’s breakfast brought in $397,000. Schoo said her favorite thing about the event is listening to all the inspirational stories, which remind her that there are good people out there, despite how negative the news can be. “It’s all a good cause,” she said about the Red Cross’ different events. “But this is the one event I leave where I feel good.”

As the annexation vote gets closer, ‘yes’ and ‘no’ sides speak out In last November’s election, Bothell annexation failed by the count of 3,767 “no” votes to 3,359 “yes” votes. In the April 17 special election, citizens of the North, East and West of Bothell Annexation (NEWBA) area will vote again on whether they want to become Bothell residents or stay residents of unincorporated Snohomish County. For this issue of the Reporter, we decided to let those in the trenches speak out about Bothell’s proposed annexation. On one side you’ve got Patrick LeDoux of Bothell YES, and on the opposite end, there’s Bud NcCorchuk of Citizens for Responsible Annexations. Both men are passionate about their stances on annexation and have been vocal over the last month in the media and in person to whoever wants to discuss the issues at hand. You can read their columns below, and hopefully readers can gain some more insight into the annexation issue and tally their vote on April 17. Andy Nystrom

In recent annexation news — this is fact, not the Reporter taking sides as has been written on some chat boards — most of you know that the city has committed to keep Fire Station 22 open for at least five years and staffed with firefighters and paramedics. Bothell has also executed agreements with Snohomish County fire districts 7 and 10 for continued high-quality service in the annexation area. Also, according to the city, since April 2010, it has broken ground on $89 million in fully-funded downtown projects; property taxes have not been raised in Bothell for more than six years; and annexation-area

I born and raised in the city of Bothell. When I moved to the North, East and West of Bothell Annexation (NEWBA) area 11 years ago and still had a Bothell address, I didn’t think there would be a difference in my new community. Today, I can first hand tell the difference in the two communities and that is why I have joined over 1,000 of my neighbors in committing myself to the citizens of the NEWBA area to bring us into the greater Bothell community that I grew up in for all of the right reasons. We want to be part of Bothell for its lower taxes and higher quality of services. We want to keep our tax dollars local and not spread them throughout the county. We understand that every dollar counts in this difficult economy, and lower taxes and better services are exactly what we need. We want to be part of something great and part of the Bothell community. Our core benefits of annexation are the following: • Local government — We can vote for all seven city councilmembers in Bothell. We can only vote for one county councilmember in Snohomish County. • Lower property taxes — The Sno-

homish County Assessor confirmed that annexation to Bothell is a property tax cut for every homeowner in the NEWBA. More importantly, the money stays here instead of going to a much bigger area. • Better services — There will be more police officers patrolling our neighborhood, and a local and more responsive public works and parks departments. • Fire service — Bothell has reached agreements with fire districts 7 and 10 and will staff both fire stations 24/7 in the NEWBA area providing paramedics and additional services by the internationally acclaimed Medic One Services. • Fiscally sound and responsive government — Bothell has lower property taxes and a better credit rating than the taxing districts that currently take our money. I wanted this opportunity to set the record straight on the matters that are vitally important for the quality of life of our neighborhoods and families. I understand more than ever the importance of lower taxes and services that are faster and of higher quality that will be provided by the city of Bothell. Please help us achieve this vision for a greater and better Bothell community. Vote Yes!

residents would not assume any of the city’s bonded indebtedness. On the state of Washington’s side, Larry Springer, Deputy Majority Leader and State Representative, 45th Legislative District, notes that “Since the passage of the Growth Management Act 30 years ago, the state has encouraged annexations or incorporations of urban areas outside of city boundaries. These unincorporated urban areas deserve urban levels of service, which are best provided by cities rather than counties.” Whether you vote “yes” or “no” on April 17, make your voice heard in this election.

NO ANNEXATION BY BUD NCCORCHUK Citizens for Responsible Annexations

This annexation is about more than just the fire service. It is all about the money — isn’t everything? Follow the money and it will all make sense. Look at the tax situation: Bothell says that the difference is $288 dollars, but do they mention the 25 cents to a thousand fire tax? It is conveniently missing from their data. The numbers just don’t match up. Bothell will have private industry build and own the new $40 million city hall and then Bothell will lease it back for $2 million a year. The first quarter is over, where is the city’s financial report for the fourth quarter of last year? Yes, again it is conveniently missing because the third quarter of last year showed that Bothell’s outflow of expenses outpaced the inflow or revenue by over a million dollars. We do not think it is wise to increase the population by 45 percent overnight and have this kind of a financial picture. A $150 million downtown revitalization plan, new $5 million King County fire station, $10 million Bothell

Landing project, $40 million city hall with 300 underground parking stalls, and purchase of the school property for $20 million and then basically gifting it to the McMenamin family. Can you see the picture? Who else in the state is this ambitious in this economy? Nobody! As for fire stations closing? Fire District 1 has been committed to Station 22 for 42 years and has had paramedic services for over 30 years. Why change something that is state of the art? In fact, Fire District 1 just completed their Utstein cardiac survival rate study. It shows that a survival rate of 62.5 percent while other local studies show a 48.5 percent survival rate. The best place to have a heart attack is in Fire District 1. In last November’s election, 3,767 citizens said NO and Bothell continues to disregard the very people they are trying to reach. Bothell’s mayor recently said, “They will not take Yes for an answer.” My very point — that’s good local representation for you. The only local control you Yes folks have will be from the mayor after you wake up and get out from under his thumb.

Leading the largest municipal downtown project in the state, the city of Bothell will soon hit upon the two-year anniversary of the official April 2010 groundbreaking and is reporting that it’s on target for reaching the $650 million private investment goal. Based on projections from private developers and Building Code Council valuations for square foot, the city anticipates that by the close of this year both projects under way and projects proposed combined will total an estimated $207 million dollars of private investment in the downtown planning area. “After collecting information from committed developers, we are

LETTER We’re fortunate to have professionals educating our children Bob Terry’s treatise on education and the accompanied aspersions in the Reporter’s March 16 opinion column gave me reason to respond. During my 16 years of service on the Northshore school board, we realigned and cut more than $20 million from our budget. Part of this was due to bringing our district up to the new standards, increased costs in all areas and reduced funding from the state. In making those cuts, there were very few areas that remained untouched, every one of our unions and schools were affected. I can vouch that cutting people and programs does not make one particularly popular. So when I chose to again run for the school board, I was both surprised and honored to be endorsed by those who work so hard on our children’s behalf. Mr. Terry is correct, I did register with the PDC (Public Disclosure Commission) that I would spend $10,000 on my campaign, as did my opponent. That amount barely covers printing and postage for one brochure. While I cannot vouch for excellence in every district across our country, I can in Northshore. We are fortunate to have students ready to learn, involved parents and teachers who are committed and care. This is what ultimately leads to success. While much of Mr. Terry’s comments are time-worn arguments, I completely agree with his statement that “caring and committed, superior teachers make the difference.” How fortunate we are in Northshore to have just such professionals educating our children.

Bothell Mayor Mark Lamb was on hand to start the event and Rep. Derek Stanford of Bothell showed up later to dole out awards to the 5K and 10K run winners. Lindsay Trieb and her workmates from Trader Joe’s in Totem Lake got involved by handing out bananas and other fruit to runners as they crossed the finish line. “It’s really inspiring. I work with a couple of young ladies who are handicapped, and it’s honestly inspiring to see people get through something like that. And to be able to come out here and support is a really big deal for us,” she said.

“It’s great to watch them be so excited about just finishing a mile. I’ve really enjoyed it.” Although she couldn’t attend the event, Gabrielle Kruegar, a 6-yearold with a severe seizure disorder, was there in spirit via her friends, the Gersons, Meghann and her daughter, Lily. Wearing signs on their backs that said, “I’m walking for my friend Gabby,” they were proud to be at the Can-Do

while Gabby was in Children’s Hospital. “We decided to walk today because she can’t walk herself and her mom can’t be here to walk for her,” Meghann said. “It’s very emotional, to be totally honest,” she continued, noting that the rain was tough on Lily. “I kept reminding her that if Gabby could walk here, she would today.”

Dorothy Schmidt, born October 31, 1917, passed away March 25, 2012. Dorothy was an avid gardener and loved to cashier for the Bothell Garden Club Plant Sales, where proceeds were donated to the Bothell Senior Center. Originally from Patoka, Illinois, she graduated from Sandoval High School in 1934 and went on to get her beauty license.Three years later she started her own business, Dorothy’s Hairstyling. She married Paul Schmidt, October 2, 1940 and in 1956 when Paul’s work brought him to Seattle, she drove across country with five kids to reunite the family. Not long after, she again opened her own salon, Dorothy’s Hairstyling overlooking the Kenmore Air Harbor. Two more children were born in Seattle. Dorothy retired in 1982 and was active in both the Lake Forest Park Garden Club and the Bothell Garden Club. Her garden was a sanctuary enjoyed by family, and friends. She is survived by all of her children and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She will be in our hearts forever. Memorials can be made in her name to Habitat for Humanity, Special Olympics, or National MS Society. Contact address: 24318 7th Ave. SE, Bothell, WA 98021.

“You’d think that people are glued on the actors, but you can see everyone just kind of … their eyes are wandering all over the walls, it’s really gorgeous,” she said. “I came in here before we started shooting and I was just snapping pictures everywhere.” Mirror Images plans to release “Matt’s Chance” in 2013.

During the subsequent investigation, Bothell police developed probable cause to arrest a 27-year-old Bothell man, who was located and arrested in the city of Edmonds on March 28, Brown said. The suspect provided Bothell officers with information that led them to an Edmonds motel located in the 23900 block of Highway 99, where officers arrested a 28-year-old Mountlake Terrace woman along with two adult individuals for unrelated drug crime violations.

We got in, though, nonetheless — we’re here,” Riley said. “We’re going with a neo-noir-type of feel and look, so very vibrant colors, deep dark shadows, so it really fits with the different color schemes that are out here in the chapel.” Jones said it’s one of the bigger sets Mirror Images has worked on, and it’s a bonus that the chapel is easy on the eyes.

A 24-year-old Bothell woman was alone in her house at the 600 block of 219th Place Southwest at about 9 a.m. on March 19 when she awoke to the sound of someone breaking into the home. Terrified, the woman attempted to hide in the bedroom closet when she saw a white male adult wearing a hoodie enter her bedroom, according to Bothell Police Department Sgt. Elmer Brown in a press release. The intruder fled from the house when he saw the woman, D9459_4.8333x6.5_Layout 1 4/3/12 7:39 AM Page 1 who then called 911. She

Detectives conducted a search of the motel room under the authority of a search warrant and recovered a large quantity of suspected stolen property. Detectives now believe these items were stolen by a larger group of suspects during several burglaries, car break-ins and mail thefts throughout the region. Bothell detectives are processing and sorting through the property in order to identify and notify the multiple victims, as well as identify additional suspects.

Working in the community newspaper industry for nearly four years, I’ve always been one to embrace change. While my duties as a sports writer for the Bothell-Kenmore and Redmond Reporter newspapers have changed slightly over the years, one thing has never changed: My commitment to covering the local high-

school sports scene to the best of my ability. I’ve always felt that our sports section was one of our strong suits and it was a very tough decision to leave such a wonderful community to take on a new career opportunity outside of journalism, effective April 6. Going forward, the sports duties will be covered by our fearless editor, Andy Nystrom, who has a strong sports background — as well as selected contributors and interns from the high schools themselves. I have no doubt that they will combine their efforts to deliver the same solid sports coverage you have seen for

the last four years. Looking back on my time here, it’s been filled with great memories that will stick with me forever. • Covering the Bothell High’s first-ever state baseball championship last spring at Cheney Stadium in Tacoma, seeing the pure elation of the boys and longtime head coach Paul Moody after history was made. • Watching some of the state’s finest athletes grow, mature and achieve great things: Bothell’s Zach LaVine (basketball), Michael Hartvigson and Colin Porter (football) and Brian McAfee (baseball), as well

as Inglemoor’s Taylor Peacocke (basketball, fastpitch) and Cedar Park Christian’s Rachael Staudacher (basketball), names that we will almost certainly hear about at the college or maybe even professional level years down the road. The memories weren’t just reserved for the court, field or pool, either. My story “The Ultimate Fighter” on current Cedar Park Christian School girls’ basketball coach Alan Dickson — and his long battle with prostate cancer — won a first-place award for sports feature writing. This job has allowed me the opportunity to meet

some of the sports world’s biggest personalities, from former WNBA superstar Sheryl Swoopes to Olympic silver medalist in gymnastics Jonathan Horton, as they both visited the local community to inspire youths. But perhaps most importantly, I really cherished the connections I made and the relationships I developed with local coaches, athletic directors and others in the prep sports community. While it was a challenge at first, over time I fostered those relationships and got to know a lot of the Bothell and Inglemoor head coaches on a first-name basis.

I’ll miss the intensity of guys like Tom Bainter and Frank Naish on the football field and Ron Bollinger and Greg Lowell on the basketball court as they fired up their squads in the fourth quarter of tight Kingco games. Now that I’m leaving the Reporter (but not the area), I can say without fear of journalistic repercussions that I will forever be a Cougar, Viking and Eagle fan for life. Thank you everyone for your readership and support, and may the upcoming years bring many more wins and positive influences on our kids through sports.

cares for a child or group of siblings. • Family day care. In this setting, one person, often a friend, neighbor or relative, cares for a small group of children in their home. • Group day-care centers. In this setting, several licensed professionals care for a large number of children, often providing hands-on learning activities. • Cooperatives. In this setting, several sets of parents get together and take turns watching each other’s children or they go in together and hire someone to watch over their children as a group. Once you’ve decided on a type of day care for your child, you should start looking for a provider. Ask friends and family for recommendations. Schedule a meeting with the providers you find and ask the following: • How long has the provider been caring for children? • How many children do they care for? • Is the provider licensed? Are they trained in first aid and C.P.R.? • How much does the provider charge per week? How do they handle holidays? Do they charge extra if you are running late? • How does the provider handle discipline problems? • What kind of activities do they provide for the children they care for? These are just some of the questions you should ask potential providers. As a concerned parent, you will probably have more. Write down your questions and don’t hesitate to give your list

safety and sanitary practices since they are still learning self help skills. Programs featuring secure playgrounds, qualified supervision, and well designed, clean classrooms are better suited for the younger set. Grade-school children tend to like more structured activities such as sports, drama, and music camps. They are ready for a greater variety in routine and are more resilient to changes in venues. Choose programs that you’re comfortable with first, and then discuss these choices with your child so they are involved

Summer camp is an opportunity for your child to enjoy time with friends and gain new experiences. And there are so many choices. Some basic questions to consider include your child’s temperament, their age, individual interests, safety and location. Children ages 3 to 6 tend to thrive in programs that provide routine in one location versus constantly changing venues. A program offered at one location with enough visits for your child to become

comfortable, allows your child to enjoy their experience versus constantly readjusting to new places and faces. A good program should include a variety of structured and free play opportunities. For this age group, the social and emotional skills so recently acquired can continue to be enhanced with guidance from experienced teachers. A good program includes plenty of outdoor play, art, music, group activities and age-appropriate games. Younger children need an environment that provides a heightened degree of

registration open for bothell youth tennis camps

Bothell’s longtime head tennis coach, Michael Louis Pizzo, will be hosting his annual Bothell Youth Tennis camps this July for kids entering 6th-12th grades. High-schoolers can choose between two camps, from July 9-12 or July 16-19, while the middle-school camp is set for July 23-26. The camps will focus on increasing overall tennis skills through group and individual instruction, the mental aspects of the game and strategy for both single and doubles. All students receive a T-shirt, snacks, prizes, and trophies for camp tournament winners. Pizzo, the Cougar head coach for over 25 years, will be assisted by Bob Moore, the Cougar assistant coach, and other United States Professional Tennis Association-certified coaches. For more information, contact Pizzo at michaellouispizzo@ yahoo.com., or call (206) 8176395. To print a registration form, visit the website at www. bothellyouthtennis.org.

Defending champion Cougars aim to repeat By Tim Watanabe twatanabe@redmond-reporter.com

Fresh off the Bothell High baseball program’s first state championship last spring, one would expect the blue-clad boys to be riding a wave of confidence heading into the 2012 season. The Cougars, however, graduated nearly all of their impact players from last year, including staff aces Brian McAfee – now pitching at Cornell University – and Henry Baillargeon, leaving them with the need to form their own identity. “We’re just in a process of rebuilding after losing such a strong senior class,” said head coach Paul Moody, adding that his team was mired in a five-game losing streak after an opening-day win over Bellevue. “ We started out a little slow… then won our last three (games).”

SLAMMIN’ SAMMY

The main problem facing the Cougars this year is that graduating the amount of seniors the program did last spring, it didn’t allow many of this year’s starters much in the way of varsity playing time. And in the tough Kingco league, it can be a steep learning curve. The main exception to that rule is junior catcher Samuel Lee, who got to start as a sophomore last year and has put up torrid numbers at the plate so far this year. He is currently third in the league in batting average

Bothell catcher Samuel Lee rips a two-run home run over the left-field fence during the Cougars’ 4-3 win over rival Inglemoor on March 26. Lee, a junior, is currently batting .519, which is the third-best average in the entire league. Tim Watanabe, Bothell Reporter at .519 (14-for-27) and second in slugging percentage (.815). “Being around all those players last year really helped him,” noted Moody on Lee’s success. “He’s one of the few legitimate comeback kids I have, that were on that team. He’s a good player, a good catcher, hits pretty well and works hard.” Also off to solid starts are seniors

Rex Carlin, a pitcher and second baseman batting .385, and first baseman Zach Anderson (.308). On the mound, the Cougars graduated one of the state’s finest in McAfee, but the 16th-year coach hopes the pitchers that have paid their dues in the program will step up while it is their turn to shine. “Probably our best pitcher right

now is Brady Mickelson,” said Moody. “He’s done okay (for) a senior that didn’t get to pitch much last year. He’s kind of earning his wings this year.” So far in four starts, Mickelson is 1-1 with a 1.75 ERA, with his only loss being a tough-luck 1-0 shutout to Roosevelt back on March 20.

Vikings ready to rise to the Kingco challenge By Andy nystrom anystrom@bothell-reporter.com

Tyler Beahan doesn’t mind the pressure of playing in the tough 4A Kingco baseball league. The Inglemoor High senior rose from the junior-varsity ranks last year to help the varsity club notch a 15-9 record and fall just short of making the state tournament. When coach Bryan McNaghten brought the junior up to varsity for the fifth game because he was on a hitting hot streak, Beahan was ready.

“That motivated me quite a bit Ballard, 9-0, and a pair of nonto strive harder,” said Beahan, who leaguers against Shorewood, 1-0, had played Little League with a lot and Monroe, 6-0. of last year’s seniors. His hitting suc“We’re learning.

classic, hard-fought InglemoorBothell game. “It’s good for us to see the boys fight like that. Because that’s the way it’s going to be in the playoffs,” the coach said. “It’s who gets that little thing done at the end is who keeps playing. This is an incredible league, so it’s huge for us, anytime we can play games like that.” Beahan, who went 3-for-4 with a double against Bothell, feels the hard work and intensity is coming on for Inglemoor.

Senior lefty Danny Larsen, who was an All-Seattle Premier League honoree with his FM Sports Lux team over the summer, is one of a handful of Vikings who will handle pitching duties this year. Other notables are seniors Blake Wilson, Lucas Wimmer and Ryan Caylor, along with Gavin Harris and Curtis Bafus. Larsen, who fired a one-hitter against Ballard, said he’s influenced by Obie Taylor from last year’s team:

hit your spots, throw low, get guys out. “I don’t usually beat guys with my speed, so I just try and make them hit the ball. I don’t walk a lot of guys, so I just let my defense do all the work,” said Larsen, who’s been pitching since he was young, but has hit his stride the last two years. The seniors have become leaders this year after modeling themselves after last year’s older guys, Larsen said. And Beahan knows how to show teammates how

it’s done from the plate by smashing a game-tying hit against Bothell in the sixth inning. “I like those kinds of situations a lot,” he said. “They put a lot of pressure on you, but when you deliver, it’s a good feeling.” The Vikings played a road game against Newport late Thursday afternoon, after the Reporter’s deadline. They also play Kennedy Catholic tomorrow at home in a nonleague exhibition game, with first pitch coming at 2 p.m.

you are invited to a presentation by Viking senior southpaw Danny Larsen, left, and righty Brady Mickelson of Bothell lead their respective pitching staffs in the 2012 baseball season. Larsen pitched an early-season gem against Ballard, a one-hit shutout, and has a 1.31 ERA through 16 innings of work. Mickelson has also been effective, allowing just four earned runs in four starts for a 1.75 ERA. Along the way, he has struck out 22 batters while walking 13. TIM WATANABE, Bothell Reporter

For Bothell, LaSalle University-bound Kendra Heyer went 2-for-3 with a team-high 3 RBIs, with Kelsie Morgan and Arista Honey also notching two hits. As a team, the Cougars took 11 free passes, scoring their 16 runs on only 12 hits.

Starter Savanna Rose and Kat Balyeat combined for the shutout as the Cougars improved to 2-2 (6-3 overall).

Viking fastpitch falls to Ballard

Playing in a 4A Kingco league matchup at home on Tuesday night against Ballard, the Viking fastpitch team fell behind early and eventually lost to the Beavers, 9-2. Shelby Johnson had a great game at the plate, going 3-for-3 with a double, and freshman Izzy Riddle added two more hits for the Vikings, who were snakebitten by six defensive errors. The loss dropped the Viks to 3-1 in league, 6-3 overall.

Inglemoor baseball wins back-to-back games

Fresh off a 5-3 makeup win over Roosevelt on Monday, the Vikings showed no signs of slowing down on Tuesday in a 3-1 win over Issaquah, snapping the Eagles’ four-game winning streak. Brandon Edwards was the star of the game, going 3-for-3, including a two-RBI double in the first inning, as lefty Danny Larsen earned the win behind a great defensive effort by his team. Larsen went the distance to earn his third win while allowing just three hits. With the win, the Vikings improved to 3-3 in league and 5-4 overall.

Going forward, Moody said that he doesn’t talk about last year’s success with his team, because it’s apparent that the Cougars are a different squad. “I think by now they’ve kind of divorced themselves from (winning the championship), because they know that so many of those kids are gone,� Moody described. “They’re just trying to be themselves, and play the best they can. We’re just letting them develop their own year.� Bothell, however, is not the only team that lost a lot. The Redmond Mustangs, who joined the Cougars in Tacoma last year as state

The key, according to Moody, will be how quickly his players can gain that precious experience and learn what it will take to put a “W� on the board. Clearly, the proverbial pot of gold is still on the other side of the rainbow, ready for the taking if the team can peak when it matters most. “We need to gain experience quickly,� he said. “The second key is learning how to win in this league.
