WIAA Athlete of the week:  Jonah Shull 

Jonah Shull has been a league leader throughout the season.  He finished Kingco league play with a .446 batting average, going 25 for 56 with 3 doubles, 9 runs scored and 10 rbi.   He was also a highly effective pitcher appearing in 11 of the 20 league games with an outstanding earned run average of .446.  Jonah had a 1-0 pitching record earning 3 saves in 3 save opportunities. For the final week of the regular season Jonah was and outstanding 8 for 10 at the plate in three games with three runs scored and 3 rbi.  He was also the winning pitcher in the season's final game against Inglemoor.  In that game he pitched two scoreless innings and allowed only one hit to secure a playoff spot in a must win game for the Cougars. 
Jonah is a very humble and quiet person with a calm and relaxed demeanor.  Over the course of our season, he has chosen opportune moments to speak up and provide key perspective and leadership for our team.  After a fantastic junior season Jonah had high expectations coming into this year.   When he got off to a rough start the first few games, Jonah was mature enough to reflect, make adjustments,  and improve his performance to the level of his outstanding final statistics.   Outside of baseball Jonah is an excellent student and involved in ASB where his advisor, Sydney Fee, has noted his attitude and contributions on several occasions.  Jonah is planning to attend Everett Community College next year to continue his baseball career and eventually transfer to a university to complete his studies.

 

Dear Baseball Families,
Our off season lifting and open fields will remain on hold for the next couple days while the school is on remote learning.   I will send separate correspondence as soon as we are approved to continue with the work outs.

Please remember that the first day of practice is Feb 28 - less than six weeks away.   It is important that each family check their registration on Final Forms.  There are several players that are not registered yet, several more with expired physicals or expiring physicals, and several more that are missing signatures on one or more forms.   All these things must be complete to participate and we don't want anyone to miss the first day.

The varsity and JV game schedules are available on the Kingco Conference website.    Our first games are Saturday, March 12, and we begin league games on Monday, March 21.  Once league play begins we will play three games per week.  Players should assume that we will either practice or play make-up games on Saturdays and all teams will have practice and games over spring break.   Players have the best experience when they participate fully in the season, and we would like every player to be at every practice and game - to the extent that is possible.  

Our staff is excited about this group of players and we are looking forward to sharing the season with all of you.   Please take advantage of these last weeks to ensure each player is prepared and ready.   Additional information regarding our team store and required gear will be provided in the next week or so. 

Thanks to everyone and best wishes.
