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.
Spring 2021: The BHS baseball team wrapped things up last night with its end of season banquet held at the field. Max Paterson, Luke Olsen, and Trevor Young received Captain Awards recognizing the significant role they played representing their teammates over the course of the season. The highlight of the evening, however, was Bruce Shull (parent) and Charlie Meyer (junior pitcher/outfielder) being awarded the first annual Bill Austin, Servant Leadership Awards. The recipients were chosen by the remainder of our coaching staff in honor of our late friend and colleague for best representing Coach Austin's team loyalty and service to others. Both Mr. Shull and Charlie provided noteworthy leadership and service to our team for the benefit of others first without self interest.
