Search warrants reveal details of mother’s murder BY MATT PHELPS


Bothell mother murdered in her home Feb. 12 had defensive wounds on her hands and arms, a fractured skull, 19 separate blunt force strikes and stab wounds to the face

and hands, court documents state. Because of the nature of Susann Smith’s wounds, she had to be identified by her dental records. Search warrants describe an alleged struggle between Susann Smith, 37, and her killer. Witness interviews paint a new

Rod Dembowski is making new friends BY MATT PHELPS

Rod Dembowski has been getting a little help from his friends - and making more along the way. He was appointed to the District 1 seat on the King County Council Feb. 11 and balancing the needs and advice of those friends, new and old, will be a big part of his new job. District 1 represents Bothell, Kenmore and parts of north Kirkland, along with parts of North Seattle, Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. One of those friends is Bob Ferguson, who vacated the seat after being elected as

Washington state Attorney General in November. “I talk to Bob several times a week,” said Dembowski. “We are close friends and he has helped to smooth the transition. But his are big shoes to fill.” Dembowski took the oath of office on March 4 from King County Superior Court Judge Sean O’Donnell, a friend and classmate of his at Georgetown University. “We had one class together but there are not many kids from Washington at Georgetown and we have stayed in touch,” said Dembowski, who was also joined by his two sons [ more COUNCIL page 3 ]

picture of her estranged husband Alan Justin Smith’s frustration with the couple’s custody battle. Alan Smith has been named by police as a person of interest in the crime. Bothell police said that no arrests have been made in the case but that

additional forensic tests are planned. “They’re just continuing the investigation and following up on leads,” Bothell police Sgt. Ken Seuberlich told the Everett Herald late Friday. Bothell police found Susann Smith’s body in her bathtub with no signs

of sexual assault on Feb. 12. The front door was unlocked. Detectives believe she was attacked in her bed with a blunt force object and the struggle continued into the bathroom. An ax was found in the home but detectives determined that it was not

used in the attack. Police took blood samples from the residence for DNA testing that investigators said would be instrumental in solving the case. They also served search warrants on Alan Smith’s apartment and vehicles. [ more MURDER page 8 ]

Coach resigns Roosevelt job for sending players to find dates Everyone knows that texting and driving is against the law. But texting and coaching might be just as questionable for youth coach Troy Hennum. Less than a year after

being investigated for texting one of his softball players inappropriately at Lake Washington High School, the Bothell select softball coach has resigned again - after just a week on the job at Roosevelt High School. Hennum, 25, allegedly was put on leave after a

woman came forward claiming that he sent his players out to find women, take their picture, get their phone number and text him the information. “He submitted his resignation on Thursday,” said Seattle School District spokesperson Teresa Wippel.

Hennum had just started with the team six days prior to the incident. Hennum allegedly sent his players on a “scavenger hunt” to find “cute women.” Kat Aagard, who works in a Seattle sports store, said that she was approached by a group of school-age girls at work.

At first she was flattered and turned over her phone number. Hennum began sending her “flirty” text messages, the Seattle Times reported. She told ABC NEWS that “he seemed like a nice enough guy.” She became worried when she did an Internet search for Hennum and

found news reports of the investigation at Lake Washington High School. Aagard reported the incident to Roosevelt High School administration. Wippel said some have questioned the district putting Hennum on leave for the incident. [ more COACH page 5 ]

“Summer is coming!”

March 15, 2013 [3] • [ council from page 1] Evan and Camden at the ceremony. “It was a neat moment.” Dembowski still has some friends in King County government from when he served under Gary Locke from 1995-97 as an executive office policy analyst. “We worked on a lot of issues that the county still faces,” said Dembowski. “I guess the big advantage is that I know how the county works. It has allowed me to hit the ground running.” He also served as a special deputy prosecuting attorney for King, Pierce and Island

Ecology approves Kenmore shoreline master program The Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) has approved the city of Kenmore’s new shoreline master program. Kenmore’s shoreline program will result in significant improvements in the protection, use, development and restoration of eight miles of shorelines and the water quality of Lake Washington, the Sammamish River, Swamp Creek and other waterways. The new master program combines local plans for future shoreline development and preservation with new shoreline development ordinances and related permitting requirements. “Kenmore’s shoreline master program helps protect the economic and environmental health of our waters. By working together, we are protecting our treasured shoreline resources for ourselves, as well as our children and future genera-

counties and was a member of the 2011 King County Districting Committee. That committee shifted the north end of Kirkland from Jane Hague and District 6 to District 1. Dembowski had to leave some friends behind on Feb. 11, quitting his position with Foster Pepper PLLC to take the position on the council. He worked for the law firm for 12 years. “I really enjoyed being a lawyer,” he said. “But serving the public made it the right decision. I want to help the county grow in an environmentally sound way.” But the councilman is also

making new friends around the area. He met with north King County mayors on Tuesday. “It is the way I get a regular update of the issues that those cities are facing,” said Dembowski. One of those mayors is Kenmore’s David Baker, who also threw his hat in the ring for the council position back in December. “He is terrific and is becoming a good friend,” said Dembowski, who has attended many meetings with Baker during the past month. “He is a fierce advocate for Kenmore.” Dembowski’s first meet-

tions. Our shorelines make Washington a great place to live,” said Geoff Tallent, Regional Shorelands and Environmental Assistance supervisor. About 260 cities and counties statewide are in the process or soon will be updating or crafting their master programs, under the state’s 1972 voter-approved Shoreline Management Act. Shoreline master programs are the cornerstone of the act. The law requires cities and counties with regulated shorelines to develop and periodically update their locally-tailored programs to help minimize environmental damage to shoreline areas, reserve appropriate areas for wateroriented uses, and protect the public’s right to public lands and waters. Kenmore brought diverse local interests to the table to work collaboratively. The shoreline master program process began with a thorough inventory of existing land-use patterns and environmental conditions. Par-

ticipants included waterfront property owners, scientists, nonprofit organizations and state and local resource agency staff. Mayor David Baker said, “We are pleased that the new Shoreline Master Program has received final approval. Kenmore is known as the city by the lake, and we see great value in protecting and preserving our shorelines, particularly along Lake Washington.” The master program: • Provides shoreline regulations in one stop by integrating the city’s growth management planning and zoning, floodplain management and critical areas ordinances. • Addresses protection of habitat and water quality through regulations that apply to shorelines, wetlands, and other critical areas in Kenmore. • Includes a restoration plan showing where and how voluntary improvements in water and upland areas can enhance the local shoreline environment.

ing he attended after being named as councilman was the Feb. 11 Kenmore City Council meeting. “I received a very warm welcome in Kenmore and Bothell,” he said. One of Dembowski’s biggest concerns is transportation and he knows how important that is to Kenmore, Bothell and north Kirkland, with increased traffic on SR 522. “The impacts on 522 from tolling are real,” said Dembowski. “And that increased traffic has impacts on cities.

The best thing we can do is be a voice for those cities. We need to make sure we have funds for transportation because that drives the economy. “It is important for Kenmore’s downtown and the Landing in Bothell. We need transportation-oriented development.” He added that 522 is not only important for Bothell, Kenmore and Kirkland but also the region. “(The realignment in Bothell) will hopefully alleviate that choke point and

integrate development with better transportation through the area,” said Dembowski. He is no stranger to Bothell, as he took part in the Fourth of July parade with Bob Ferguson, riding on a fire engine during the past few years. He plans to continue that tradition this year. But the biggest friends that Dembowski will have to make during the next eight months are District 1 voters, as he will have to run for election in November to keep the seat.

Kenmore’s double tax increase fails to offset record deficit


wo new taxes, one on residential water bills amounting to $423,000 per year for the city in revenue and a new car-tab tax of $300,000 per year, were not enough to offset Kenmore’s record deficit in the 2013–2014 budget. An additional $400,000 was removed from capital funds, Real Estate Excise Tax, to balance the budget. Kenmore had enough unused taxing authority in property and utility taxes to cover the tax increase but instead elected to broaden its taxing authority with the two new taxes. This will make it easier to raise future taxes without voter approval and undermines the principle that there should be accountability through a cap on taxing authority. Without the tax increases and the $400,000 depletion of capital funding, the 2013-2014 operating budget deficit is a record $1.6 million. As promised during incorporation in 1998, the operating surplus was our primary source of infrastructure funding for local roads and parks, among other city expenditures. During the first 10 years the surplus amounted to $27.6 million; $17 million of which was spent on City Hall and $10 million on Kenmore Village. That surplus has steadily eroded during the past six years into a deficit that not only

requires substantial tax increases but also the depletion of needed local infrastructure funds. The exact opposite of what the financial plan promised voters at incorporation. Prior to the recession, total revenue in 2006 of $10.3 million has increased to $10.8 million per year in 2013 and 2014 respectively. During this time annual expenses of $8.1 million in 2006 have increased to $10.6 million per year. Likewise, the direct costs of salaries and benefits have increased from $1.4 million in 2006 to $3 million per year in 2013 and 2014 John Hendrickson

respectively. As a small bedroom community, Kenmore resident’s now have to pay 74 percent of the city’s total revenue. This is much higher than most cities where local residents normally pay less than half of their total revenues. As operating costs continue to rise unchecked, the Kenmore City Council has nowhere to turn for funding but to local residents. Yet the council continues to insist that there is no lack of surplus or deficit problem.

John Hendrickson is a former Kenmore City Councilman.

Baker among 21 mayors to write president on aviation The Alliance for Aviation Across America along with mayors from 21 communities across Washington, including David Baker of Kenmore, have joined town and city officials from around the country in recognizing the critical importance of general aviation to towns and communities. The petition specifically cites the harm of negative rhetoric and increased taxes on businesses, farms and non-profit organizations that depend on general aviation, and highlights the struggle that the industry has faced. In Washington, general aviation contributes more than $3.18 billion to the economy every year and supports 7,615 jobs. Dear Mr. President: We write to express our deep concern that your comments about general aviation in recent weeks and months

have not only mischaracterized these aircraft and their crucial importance for our economy, but have suggested that the businesses and communities that depend on this form of transportation can afford an increased tax burden for general aviation operators. On behalf of over 100 communities in 48 states, we write to let you know that for thousands of towns and communities like ours around the country, general aviation is a vital part of our economy and national infrastructure, and we are extremely concerned about the repercussions of your statements on this important lifeline to communities around the nation. General aviation supports 1.2 million American jobs, over $150 billion in economic impact annually, and is a vital economic engine for our national economy. However, it is also a struggling industry. There has been a 15.5 percent drop in general aviation aircraft shipments, and billings for general aviation have dropped 22.3 percent. Since 2008, manufacturers have also laid off roughly

20,000 workers, which is additionally concerning given that the general aviation industry remains one of the only sectors in U.S. manufacturing that still contributes positively to the balance of trade. In addition, general aviation aircraft and the airports they utilize are a literal lifeline to our communities, providing access for business growth, law enforcement, disaster relief, medical care and other services. They are utilized to help transport blood and organs to residents in rural communities, reunite veterans back from overseas with their families, and help our companies to reach customers in markets that otherwise could not be reached. As you know well, the vast majority of businesses and organizations that own and utilize general aviation are not wealthy CEOs. Rather, 85 percent are small to mid-sized businesses and organizations that rely on these aircraft to reach far-off plants and customers, serve rural markets without access to commercial aviation, or

deliver medical care and other services. We can tell you firsthand that these aircraft are a crucial tool and resource for businesses in our communities; businesses that keep our communities afloat and help workers to be able to continue to put food on their table for their families. Also concerning to us is the recent discussion of new “user fee” taxes on general aviation aircraft operators. These taxes would mean not only an additional tax burden, but a huge administrative burden on businesses, farms and organizations that use general aviation and that would have to literally keep track of invoices for fees for thousands of take-offs and landings. In addition, at a time when our government is supposed to be finding ways to reduce government spending, we do not understand why some in Congress seek to create huge, new bureaucracy within the FAA to administer these new taxes. At such a vulnerable time for our economy, we need to be doing everything we can to support jobs and help

to stimulate our economy, not crippling an important industry which represents a lifeline to communities such as ours around the nation. We stand ready to work with you on this and all issues related to local communities around the nation.

Levy-dependent organizations in have moved into Taj Mahal-sized facilities Northshore citizens should be aware that many of the levy-dependent governmental organizations have recently moved into Taj Mahal-sized facilities. If not, and just mentioning a few, check out the new Kenmore city hall, the new expansive Northshore Fire Station, which is next to the now empty large brick one, and the large Northshore School District administrative building. Apparently, levy amounts provide extravagant options.

Man sentenced to eight years for attempting to run down police officer


BRIEF Tuition-based preschool and prekindergarten programs to move The Northshore School District will relocate the tuition-based preschool and prekindergarten programs at Cottage Lake and Frank Love elementary schools to other schools to accommodate enrollment growth, beginning the 2013–14 school year.

“He is in a position of authority and you can’t ask players to do something like that,” said Wippel. Lake Washington School District spokesperson Kathryn Reith said Hennum “was found to have violated district policy, but not to a level that would require a letter of reprimand or a letter of directive,” last year after he resigned from LWHS. The Lake Washington School District’s investigation into alleged inappropriate texting between Hennum and a LWHS female student athlete found no evidence of an inappropriate relationship between the two. Hennum faced no punitive action from the district and was allowed to apply to coach for the team again but chose to apply elsewhere. Hennum was placed on administrative leave in April 2012, just as at Roosevelt, after students reported he was texting a player. Hennum told in-

More classroom space is needed at Frank Love Elementary School to accommodate north end enrollment growth, and as a result, the tuitionbased classroom at Frank Love Elementary School will relocate to Arrowhead Elementary School. Additional classroom space is needed at Cottage Lake Elementary School to accommodate enrollment growth of the district’s special education preschool and prekindergarten program, so the tuitionbased classroom at Cottage Lake Elementary School will relocate to Hollywood Hill Elemenvestigators he reached out to the Kirkland student via text because he was concerned about her and that he “regretted” doing so. The student had allegedly been having off-thefield issues, investigation documents state. Roosevelt’s assistant principal and athletic director hired Hennum and had the information from the investigation. “They interviewed him and sat down with some folks at Lake Washington High School and discussed the situation that happened there,” said Wippel. “They also read the (investigational) report.” Wippel said the two administrators made the recommendation to hire Hennum but ultimately it was the Roosevelt High School principal who had the final decision. An Internet search for Hennum revealed that he has had an affiliation with the Bothell select softball team the Bandits. But he has since been removed from the web page. The Reporter has not received

Medoro was able to elude police and the car was found abandoned in a nearby neighborhood. After a short search, a police K9 tracked down Medoro in a nearby wooded area. Medoro was under community custody at the time

for a previous conviction that included eluding police. He was also wanted on felony charges in connection with a rash of burglaries in Kirkland. Medoro had a pistol in the vehicle, which he knew was a violation of his prior felony conviction for possession of methamphetamines. Medoro was also found to have $4,000, a half pound of heroin, metham-

phetamines, a marijuana scale and other drug paraphernalia in his back pack when he was arrested, court documents continued. The officer recognized Medoro during the traffic stop as someone he had dealt with before, according to court documents. His criminal history began when he was just 13 when he was charged with malicious mischief. In 1996,

Medoro was convicted of his first felony for car theft when he was 15. Medoro has been convicted of 11 felonies since 2004. He was released from prison in December 2011 after serving nearly five years for possession of stolen property and methamphetamines. He also has three previous convictions for attempting to elude police.

A convicted felon who pleaded guilty to attempting to hit a Bothell police officer with his car was sentenced to more than eight years in prison. He faced a maximum of 25 years for second-degree assault, attempting to elude a pursuing police vehicle and unlawful possession of a firearm. Prosecutors recommended that Joseph Thomas Medoro, 32, be sentenced to 18 years in prison but

the court agreed that his chemical dependency contributed to his offenses. Medoro will also serve 18 months in community custody after his release and have to pay $600 in fees. Medoro attempted to ram his Pontiac Grand Am into a Bothell police car during a traffic stop for expired tabs last summer. The officer was not in the car at the time and had drawn his weapon to take Medoro into custody. After ramming the police car, Medoro drove at another officer while attempting to

teaching himself how to play louder, more experimental music than the stuff traditionally taught. Inspired by French-born violinist Jean Luc Ponty, Castle has become known for his genre-bending blend of Celtic, blues, jazz and rock and roll – and for pushing the boundaries of traditionally “classical” music. A performer for more than 30 years, Castle has self-released eight albums of original music, the most recent being a double disc entitled the “Deep Well Sessions.” When he’s not working on his own material, the veteran player also sits in with other musicians. Castle has performed – and recorded – with the likes of Alan White (Yes), Spike Edney (Queen), Jamie Moses (Queen, Bad Company), Tom Bowes (Tower of Power), Eric Bazilian (the Hooters), and more. But for Castle, the best part about being a professional musician is playing live, as evident in the 250plus shows he does each year. In addition to traveling the country, Castle plays host for the weekly Monday Night Celtic Night party at Kirkland’s Wilde Rover Irish Pub – where he and co-host Dan Connolly play a variety of Celtic tunes. This month, Castle will also host the 8th Annual St. Patrick’s Eve Concert, taking place at the Kirkland Performance Center. •

Bothell police Sgt. Cedric Collins confirmed that Smith died of “homicidal violence.” Police were called to Smith’s residence at the 200 block of 240th St. S.W. in Bothell during a welfare check on Feb. 12. Police entered the home after receiving no answer at the door and seeing large amounts of blood through a bedroom window and the furniture “askew.” Smith’s employer, Z2Live, contacted the Bothell Police Department because they were concerned about Smith’s welfare, said Z2Live CEO Lou Fasulo in a statement on Feb. 13. She failed to show up for two days of work. Police said that the Smith’s two children were not home at the time of the incident and were either in the custody of the father or at school. They have since been placed with Child Protective Services. Alan Smith took custody of the couple’s two children on Feb. 9 and dropped them off at school and daycare on the morning of Feb. 12. A neighbor was the last known person to see Susann Smith alive, in her driveway late on the night of Feb. 10. Bloody footprints, both bare or with socks along with the sole of a shoe, were found in the home. All the prints were determined to be the same size.

According to charging papers, the company claimed it had conducted no business from 2004 through 2010, but an audit found that it actually had done nearly $291,000 in work on which it had collected but not remitted sales tax. Strash and Kemp-Strash admitted to auditors that they were at fault for not reporting the sales tax the company collected, but claimed it simply the result of being unorganized. “We understand we owe what we owe and want to take care of our responsibility and put this mess behind us,” they wrote in an email to the Department.

Susann Smith’s attorney Susann Smith’s attorney John Ely told police that after a recent monetary judgement in their custody battle, the couple was in the hallway discussing the ruling. “In 15 years of practicing family law, Ely does not remember ever seeing a stare by one party to the other in the court house quite like that stare Alan gave Susann,” detectives wrote. Ely said it was “an incredibly menacing stare.” Ely stated that Susann Smith denied that her husband had ever physically abused her but said that he could be “emotionally threatening.” She stated that he would get in her face and confront her. Ely also said that Alan Smith had accused his estranged wife of sexually abusing their oldest child and then a month later sent Susann Smith an email asking to move back in to the house to “give his children their family back.” He later rescinded his accusations that she had abused the child and filed a motion that his wife planned to move to her native Germany with the two children.

...young at heart Tips to help you avoid financial exploitation (NAPSI)—Older Americans should know that while financial abuse is believed to cost seniors an estimated $3 billion annually, you can help prevent it and protect yourself.

Signs to watch for

Financial abuse is believed to cost American seniors an estimated $3 billion annually. CONTRIBUTED

• You, family, friends or your bank notice financial activity you don’t recall, that is not consistent with your financial history or that is beyond your means. • Your caregiver or beneficiary refuses to use your funds for necessary care and treatment or is threatening to place you in a long-term care facility unless you give him or her control of your finances. • It appears that food or medication has been manipulated or withheld so you become weak and compliant.

Steps you can take


• If you feel threatened and believe you are in immediate danger, contact law enforcement. • Talk with family members, friends and trusted professionals to plan your financial future. If managing your daily finances is difficult, consider engaging a money manager. • Talk with a lawyer about creating a durable power of attorney for asset management, a revocable or living will, trust and health care advance directives. • Never send anyone personal information to collect a prize or reward. • Don’t be pressured or intimidated

into quick decisions by a salesperson or contractor. • Don’t sign any documents you don’t completely understand without first talking it over with an attorney or a family member you trust. • Never provide personal information (Social Security, credit card, ATM PIN number) over the phone unless you placed the call and know with whom you are speaking. • Tear up or shred credit card receipts, bank statements, solicitations and financial records before disposing of them. • If you hire someone to help you in your home, be sure that person has been properly screened, with criminal background checks completed. • If you suspect you or someone you know is being exploited, call (800) 677-1116 to get connected with the state Adult Protective Services or other appropriate aging resource. • For more information on financial exploitation, you can request a free brochure from the Eldercare Locator, “Protect Your Pocketbook: Tips to Avoid Financial Exploitation.” Call (800) 677-1116; the brochure can also be downloaded at www.eldercare. gov.

muscle-strengthening activities should be conducted two or more days a week.

Why exercise Exercise can help prevent many physical problems and chronic conditions that come with aging, including weight gain, back pain and heart disease. Plus, it keeps the mind sharp and can help you feel happier, improving symptoms of depression and even dementia. To gain these benefits, however, you need to find a fitness program that provides the physical results desired and is enjoyable, too, so you’ll stick to it. That’s where the nation’s leading exercise program for older adults comes in.

How to exercise Before you begin any exercise program, McMahon has the following tips: 1. See your doctor, especially if you have a chronic condition. 2. Start slowly.

Have realistic short-term goals you can easily meet. 4. Don’t be intimidated. Remember that everyone had to walk in the door for the first time. Don’t let the thought of starting hold you back.

For us Seattleites, we may not have the sun and salt water as much as the Spaniards, but we could do a better job of embracing our climate and eating according to it. It’s March here in Kirkland. The weather is cold and the sun is just starting to peek out more often. The ground is starting to warm a bit, tulips are blooming and rain is becoming less frequent. Ideally for us, we need to eat cauliflower, finish up apple season, enjoy leeks and onions for a couple more months and start looking forward to asparagus, kale, rhubarb and baby spinach that are about to be ready for April.

and nuts. The “Mediterranean diet” has been popular since the 1990s when Harvard did a health presentation based on the diet of Greece and Southern Italy. This olive oil, tomato and wine diet is what we now refer to as the Mediterranean diet, which many authors have cashed in on with books and kitschy programs. It popped up again recently after another cohort study came out in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study done in Spain followed 7,000-plus people (about half men, half women, ages 55-80) and monitored over the course of around five years how many of those people had a “cardiovascular event.” Some ate a Mediterranean diet supplemented with olive oil. Some ate a Mediterranean diet supplemented with nuts. The others were just advised to lower their fat intake. In the end, there were a total of 288 cardio events (heart attacks) that occurred out of the 7,000-plus people who were followed. The group eating the Mediterranean diet plus nuts had 83 events. The group eating the diet plus extra virgin olive oil had 96 events. The group told to lower their fat had 109

events. They confirmed what other studies had shown and what experts have thought for a while now. Eating a Mediterranean diet lowers your risk of cardio trouble. Interestingly enough, when a reporter from NPR asked some Spaniards about the study, they agreed – their food is excellent. But, they also said that even more than the types of food they eat, it’s the climate. They put more emphasis on following the climate, eating foods that grow in season where they are. They stated that growing or importing food out of season loses nutrient content and that people were originally designed to eat according to their own climates.

Cedar Park finishes third at state, best is school history BY MATT PHELPS


he Cedar Park boys basketball team finished its season at center court on the floor of the Sun Dome in Yakima on March 2, hoisting the third place state title trophy high into the air. Cedar Park head coach Adam Lynch said one of the big things that fueled the team was its chemistry on and off the court. “It was a tight-knit group that committed to working hard in the off-season to get better and enjoyed the time together,” said Lynch. “I don’t think you can underestimate the value of having good team chemistry and contributing to the overall success of the team.” The Eagles defeated Lynden Christian 52-50 to bring home the 1A third-place trophy from the Hardwood Classic. The game was a battle for the entire 32 minutes of play as the teams traded leads throughout the game. Cedar Park finished the first eight minutes with a slim one-basket lead, but the Lyncs used a hot second quarter to take a 27-24 advantage into halftime. The Eagles cut into that lead during the third period, outscoring Lynden 16-14. But the one-point deficit loomed large in the extremely close contest. Cedar Park played smart during the defensive battle known as the fourth quarter. The team outlasted the Lyncs 12-9 during the final eight minutes of play to win the game. Evan Scholten stepped up for the Eagles during their final contest of the season. The senior led the

Scholten was selected as a member of the All-State 1A team and will participate in the 1A/2A All State game March 16 at Curtis High School. “Evan has had an outstanding high school career and saved his best for last,” said Lynch. “In that final game he dominated all phases and was clearly the best player on the court.” Lynden Christian won the rebound battle 41-31. Eagle Trey Drechsel finished the game with 12 points, while teammate Daniel Christenson had nine points. The team from Bothell’s defense did a good job of defending the three-point shot, holding the Lyncs to 5-for-22 from beyond the arch. Cedar Park lost to Toledo, 46-39, on March

Honors Earning a birth in the Hardwood Classic State 1A Basketball Tournament was a team goal, but individual honors were also bestowed on the Cedar Park Christian boys team as voted by the head coaches for the Nisqually League. For winning the Nisqually League with a 15-1 record during the Eagles first year in the league, Coach Adam Lynch was recognized as the league’s Coach of the Year. This is Lynch’s fifth year as head coach for the varsity program. The Nisqually League Most Valuable Player honors went to junior Trey

Dreschel, who scored 16 points a game. Earning first-team honors for the second year in a row was senior center Evan Scholten. Luke Saufferer, senior point guard in his first year of varsity eligibility at Cedar Park, was awarded with All League Second Team honors. Despite playing the state tournament games on the other side of the state, Lynch said that the community still came out to support the team. “Our fans have supported us tremendously all year,” said Lynch. “Our student body came out once again in full force and our community was well represented. It was an honor to represent our school and community at the state tournament.” Cedar Park finished the season with a 22-3 record and set a school record with a 19-game winning streak during the regular season.

Bothell bounced from state tournament in two games after loss to Newport BY MATT PHELPS

The Bothell High School boys basketball team’s season came to an abrupt end during the second day of the state tournament at the Tacoma Dome on March 1 with a furious comeback that ultimately fell short, as the Cougars lost to Newport 65-58. Bothell trailed 50-39 with two minutes left in the third quarter but the team was not willing to go down easy. The Cougars mounted a comeback that saw them whittle the lead down to just three points

with less than a minute to play. But a big shot by Newport’s Miles Fowler, who hit a fadeaway jumper with the shot clock expiring, extended the lead to five points with less than 40 seconds remaining in the game. Bothell began the game with the lead. Cougar Josh Martin showed his power, dunking the ball and knocking the hoop off its base. It took officials 15 minutes to get the hoop back on its base. But the layoff seemed to hurt the Cougars as they held an 18-16 lead at the time of the dunk and Newport

began their run. One of the biggest issues Bothell had during the game was from beyond the three-point line as the team shot a dismal 1-for15 during the game. Bothell senior Zach LaVine led the team with 27 points but was 0-for-10 from three-point range. Cougar teammates Perrion Callendret (15 points) and Martin (10 points) both scored in double figures.

Bothell loses to Garfield A slow third quarter cost the Cougars a chance

to play for the state title, losing 62-50 to Garfield High School on Feb. 28. “All fairy tales come to an end,” said Bothell senior Zach LaVine, who led the team with 16 points. Both teams played strong defense to begin the game, combining for just 21 first-quarter points. But Bothell junior Josh Martin got his team going with a monster rebound and dunk, punctuated with a scream, to finish the first quarter. That basket sparked an 11-1 run, as the team built a 19-14 lead. The teams played bas-

ket-for-basket during the remainder of the half, as Bothell entered the locker room with a 30-26 lead. The third quarter was more like a nightmare for Bothell, scoring just three points, all on free-throw shots. “We just lacked the offense,” said LaVine. “We got the ball to the wrong people and needed to play a lot harder.” Despite the dismal offense the Cougars were still in the game, trailing by just six points entering the fourth quarter. But Bothell continued to struggle from the floor,

hitting just 6-of-22 shots during the second half. LaVine tried to wake his teammates, throwing down a vicious dunk with two minutes remaining for his final basket. Bothell began the season ranked No. 1 in the state but lost to Garfield three times.

“I think about it all the time,” said Arena. The Dynamo will host the Sounders this season in Houston, so Arena will have time and another goal for next year when his team comes to Seattle. The 2009 Inglemoor High School graduate contributes a lot of his success to his Crossfire coach, Bernie James. He admits that his coach’s tactics were a little controversial. “He was it for 10 years,” said Arena. “We won state eight times. He found a way to get results. Many people didn’t like the way he went about things but he got results. He is the reason I got to play in college.” At Wake Forest, Arena played in the Final Four during his freshman year and was voted to the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) All-Freshman Team. His sophomore year was completely different. “We had a lot of growing pains,” said Arena. “There was a lot of leadership put on young guys and we had our first losing season in 10 years.” Despite the struggles he was still named to the Second Team All-ACC. Then, he spent most of his junior year injured. His senior year he was healthy and he had a good season, although he says the team underachieved. But his individual play helped his stock with MLS teams. “My coach told me my

othell native Anthony Arena’s first love growing up was always soccer. During his 10 years playing for the Redmond Crossfire Premier Soccer Club he had a common dream - to play professionally. Arena fulfilled that dream on Jan. 22 as he was drafted by the Houston Dynamo of Major League Soccer (MLS). “I always thought I was capable of it,” Arena said. “My freshman year of college we had four or five guys leave for the MLS. But I knew I had to put in the work.” But it is not that easy. According to the University of Georgia’s Career Information Center, only .08 percent of all U.S. high school players turn pro in soccer. Arena, 22, knew he had some talent when he earned a scholarship to Wake Forest. But signing to play with the Dynamo was a completely different experience. “It was always in my plans but when I saw that contract it was a whole different set of emotions,” said Arena, who signed his contract last week. “It is the pinnacle of all my goals.” Arena’s goals are now career oriented. “I am just working on making it into a game,” said Arena, who was the 18th player selected in the MLS Supplemental Draft. “My long-term goal of course is to start a game.” Arena knows it will be tough to crack the 18-man roster but he has taken the challenge very seriously. He is in the process of moving to Houston. “I like it a lot down here,” said Arena. “Summers are very hot. I am really excited.” One of his dreams is to play the Sounders at Century Link Field.

Growing up, Arena focused his time at Crossfire and only played one season at Inglemoor High School, helping to lead the team to the state semifinals during his sophomore year. His sister also played for the Vikings and graduated in 2004. He said that he often comes back to Bothell and plays in pick-up games. After all, his parents Chris and Kristi still live in Bothell. He said his mother was extremely excited when he signed his contract. “My mom wanted to call me every day and my

Inglemoor girls basketball makes history, places sixth at state



The Inglemoor High School girls basketball team finished with a school best sixth in state at the Tacoma Dome on March 2. CONTRIBUTED PHOTO heart out in each game will definitely wear you down. We also missed a lot of easy shots.” Deja Strother finished with 12 points during just 13 minutes on the floor, while Chalayia Fuller led the team with eight rebounds. “Deja played well in the tournament in spurts,” said Augustavo. “She seemed to be a magnet for any call that was in her area whether it was on her or not and that limited her playing time and really hamstrung us as a team.” Strother was in foul trouble during the games against Prep and Mount Rainier.

But she showed what she is capable of against Skyline.

Inglemoor beats Skyline again Inglemoor guaranteed itself of placing at state on March 1 with a 44-34 victory against Skyline. The win may have been inspired by Fuller’s speech. “Prior to the game against Skyline I simply wrote on the whiteboard: Who wants it more,” said Augustavo. “No talk, no plays, just who wants it more. The girls responded. Chay Fuller also gave one of the most incredible talks after the loss

to Mount Rainier that I can ever remember. That kept us focused.” Against the Spartans, Inglemoor’s Strother dominated with 18 points, 12 rebounds and three blocked shots. Strother was 7-of-11 from the floor. It was the third time this season the Vikings have defeated Skyline. The last time the two teams met, Inglemoor took the 4A KingCo tournament title from the Spartans.

Loss to the Rams Inglemoor began the tournament with a loss to

Mount Rainier, 61-56, late on Feb. 28. The Vikings fell behind early 18-11 at the end of the first quarter but turned a 31-21 halftime deficit into a tie game by scoring 22 third-quarter points. But the Rams used a 2012 free-throw advantage to build a slim lead and win the game. Julia Haining led the Vikings with 19 points. But Inglemoor could not find an answer for Mount Rainier’s Birttany McPhee, who led all scorers with 28 points. McPhee scored half her points from the free-throw line, shooting 14of-15. She also finished with 14 defensive rebounds. Despite having the best season in school history, Augustavo thinks that this run is a long way from being over. “We return nine players for next year,” said the coach. “Nine players that have won the KingCo title and played at state. They will be ready to go come November. As far as the seniors go, I couldn’t be more proud of them and their efforts. They led a young group of kids into every game and taught them how to win. All three kids are quality players and quality girls.”
