The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

From the best seat in the house


The All League selections for the SCAC West honor those who had the best performances for their schools. There is a limit on how many are chosen and sometimes people I think are obvious candidates get left out. So, I will give my honorable mention for some who I thought stood out.

In football, B.J. Walter was the leading rusher for Goldendale and had a number of punishing runs; the hardest guy in the SCAC to get to the ground. Trent Radway was the best coverage man for Goldendale; three interceptions and was second on the team in solo tackles. Mason Steen was a force on both lines and one reason for the Wolves’ strong running game.

For volleyball how about Kirsten Twohy, second on the team with 163 kills and first with 34 stuff blocks. Serving was the thing for Sierra Lamping...she put the ball in play 261 times with just 19 errors and was easily team leader with 43 aces...also good when the ball came the other way, making good passes on 72 percent of 222 serves received.

Cheyenne Smith led the Lady Wolves in scoring in soccer and deserves to be mentioned.

I also liked the effort of Emily Hurst in cross country. She got better with each race. I plotted her 3-mile times...if she had 24 more races at the rate she was improving, she would have had a time of 3 minutes. That’s 60 mph. Pretty fast for any human.

Must see game or match of the week:

Have to stick with the Seahawks one more time for game of the week since high school sports don’t get going until Dec. 1.

I thought Seattle needed to win out before seeing Arizona on Sunday. I bought the Arians hype about Drew Stanton before the game. Not now. No TDs, just one field goal in seven quarters. They might beat Atlanta next week, but could easily lose their final four.

Seahawks can afford to lose one of their final five. Could happen if it’s cold Dec. 7, in Philadelphia, but Sanchez? I don’t think so. Hawks can afford to split with 49’ers, but need to sweep the Cards.
