M-P sends 18 athletes to various colleges
MARYSVILLE — Marysville-Pilchuck has 18 athletes who are continuing their athletic careers after high school.
Seven will continue to play baseball.
Catcher Ben Northup will play for Corban University in Salem, Ore.
“He’s worked really hard,” head baseball coach Kurt Koshelnik said. “It’s been a long road for him but he got to where he wanted to be.”
The other six ball players are going the community college route.
“Community college is a good place for a lot of players to start,” Koshelnik said. “It’s a good stepping stone onto bigger things. Everyone’s goal is to keep playing.”
Cody Anderson will pitch for Bellevue College, and third baseman Andrew Alvis, outfielder Kyle Graton, pitcher and first baseman Alex Gray, pitcher and infielder Collin Holeman, and outfielder Braden Hopstad will play for Everett Community College.
“It’s a really competitive league,” Koshelnik said. “They learn how to pitch and swing a wooden bat.”
For girls basketball, guard and forward Jordan Bengen is committed to play for Pacific Lutheran University, and forward and pointguard Jenika Anglim will play for Skagit Valley Community College.
“They’re both just incredible girls that worked really hard,” M-P head basketball coach Julie Martin said. “I think they’re both going to do really well in their sport or school.”
Forward Amanda Klep signed her letter of intent to play soccer for Concordia University in Portland, Ore, and Sarah Cronin will continue soccer for Shoreline Community College.
Middle blocker Marley Reynolds will play volleyball for Skagit Valley.
For boys soccer, midfielder Fabian Panduro-Galvin wants to play for EvCC.
For football, Jake Luton signed his letter of intent to play quarterback for University of Idaho in Moscow, and Deion Stell and Dante Field signed their intents for Central Washington University. Stell will run track as well for CWU.
“Stell has just exploded this year as a runner,” M-P track and field head coach Randy Davis said. “And I also know he’s a really good football player so I think he will do well in both sports.”
Bri King will participate in track for CWU, and Clifford Paulk will turn out for track for Seattle Pacific University.
“Paulk is going to be a great steal for that school,” Davis said. “He’s going to get stronger. He has worked really hard on his jumps.”
