LETTER OF INTENT ATHLETES
KATIE FODGE has committed to Bellevue College playing Fastpitch in the fall.
Katie chose to continue her athletic and academic career at Bellevue College for many reasons. "One of them being that I get along with the coaches so well. I also love the environment of the campus and the team. I am super excited for the opportunity to continue playing the sport I love."
Coach Miller had this to say about her: Katie Fodge has been on the Varsity Fastpitch Softball team all 4 years. She has led the team in home runs and RBI's every year. She also led the team in innings pitched in 2019. When she is not hitting home runs or pitching, she is an incredible Center Fielder with tremendous range and speed. Bellevue College is not only getting an extraordinary student/athlete but even a greater person, and I cannot wait to watch her at the next level.
We echo Coach Miller and wish you all the best Katie.
GABE JOHNSON commits to playing football at Eastern Washington University in the fall! We'll be watching this Cougar as he morphs into an Eagle!! Gabe made his decision for some solid reasons: * pretty close to home; * great academic program for 'after sports' years; * LOVES the coaching staff; * a winning program!
Coach Bainter had this to say about Gabe: "Gabe is a 3-year starter as a defensive end and has an uncanny ability to get to the quarterback quickly. He has the ability to compete for playing time early in his college career. I think Eastern is a great fit for Gabe!"
Hannah Cecil has committed and signed with Pacific Lutheran University! Hannah is excited about PLU "because of the community feel, great soccer environment, and high academic standards."
Coach Bear's remarks: "Hannah Cecil is a person that any coach hopes to have on their team: she is a leader, a workhorse, a teammate, and a friend for everyone around her. PLU is lucky to get a player like Hannah that puts in the work when nobody is looking, leads by example when everyone is looking, and goes the extra mile when the team needs her. Congratulations to Hannah on this awesome achievement, and I wish her nothing but the best in this upcoming journey." We all look forward to seeing you on the field Hannah!
Malik Said has committed and signed with Montana Tech! Malik is a double sport athlete at BHS.
Malik is excited about Montana and had this to say about his choice:
I choose Montana Tech because it was the best option for me and my future. Montana tech is a great school and getting a computer science degree out of there actually holds weight to lead me to endless opportunities. I loved the change of scenery and the coaching staff is great!
According to Head FB Coach Bainter Montana Tech is a great fit for Malik. He was a defensive lineman and played both sides of the ball.
Best of luck as you move into the collegiate world of sports Malik!!
Congratulations Quentin O’Connor!
So excited to announce that Quentin has signed with Yakima Valley College to play baseball after graduation.
According to Coach Schaefer, Quentin may love baseball more than any player we've ever had at Bothell! He has been a three year Bothell varsity player and is looking forward to his final year pitching this spring. Yakima is a great fit for Quentin as it is, according to him, “a very competitive school and a fun environment. They want to win games and I believe they can get me to the next level.”
As we look across our nation during this time of both pandemic and social unrest, the Athletic Directors of Northshore stand together fighting for Equity and Racial Justice. We all may not be starting this journey from the same place, but we stand together to make Northshore a safe and supportive environment for all students and families. During this challenging time, we promise to work together in this fight to diminish institutional barriers and promote racial and educational justice. We commit to making this a better place for every person employed by or served by our schools in the Northshore School District.

SCHEDULE IMPACTS ATHLETES GRADE CHECKS
With the change in our daily schedule to a 7-period day; student athletes must be passing 6 out of 7 classes to maintain WIAA athletic eligibility at grades checks. By WIAA rule you have to be passing the minimum number of classes (6 classes) if you are only taking the minimum number of classes. For example, if you are only taking 6 classes in a 7-period day you must pass all 6 classes at the grade check to be eligible. Seniors on track to graduate can take only 5 or 6 classes but MUST be passing ALL. Northshore requires student athletes to have a 2.0 GPA with initial grade checks for the season and also at the end of each semester. There are many scenarios with Running Start and Alternative Schools. Please contact Y Mills if you have specific questions.
