Arlington baseball, girls track look exceptional (slide show)

ARLINGTON – Based on the number of All-Wesco returnees from last year, the Eagles should have exceptionally strong baseball and girls track teams.

Good pitching can take a team a long way in high school and Arlington returns two of the league’s best in Owen Bishop and Cameron Smith.

A strong catcher also is key and the Eagles have that in Jack Sheward, who plans to play to baseball power Lewis-Clark State College in Lewiston, ID next year.

Rounding out their all-league returnees is Michael Tsoukalas, who was named as a utility player who can play all over.

The girls track team is loaded.

All-Wesco returnees include Kelsey Mutton in the 400 and 4 by 200 relay team along with Sarah French, Jersey Heiss and Marine Wassmer. She’s also on the 4 by 400 relay along with Malia Mostajo, Jensyn Smith, Reise Walker

Wassmer also made all-league in the 300 hurdles and 200-meter dash.

Walker also made it in the 300 meters.

Another Eagle who was all-Wesco in two events who is returning is Julia Parra, who excels in the shot put and discus.

The boys team returns five All-Wesco standouts.

Kristian Fairbanks made it in two events – the javelin and on the 4 by 100 relay team with Cade Younger, Daylin Pierce. Back tossing the discus is Isaac Donnelson. And running the 3200 is Blake Landry.

The girls golf and boys soccer teams return one all-league performer each: Defender Evan Aune in soccer and golfer Mailinh Vu.
