The Glacier Peak Grizzlies continue to keep on top of the Wesco 4A standings despite winning just two of their past five games. The Grizzlies last week split a two-game series against Mount Vernon, who is in second place, and also split a two-game series against Lake Stevens, who holds the third-place spot. The Grizzlies (12-5, 9-3 league at press time on Monday) closed out the season with a two-game series against the Monroe Bearcats on Monday and Tuesday of this week, and will be heading into the
4A District 1 Tournament that begins this weekend.

Snohomish Pilchuckers offer youth a quality baseball experience

The 2017 Pilchucker Youth Baseball squads are set and are officially bringing quality youth baseball back to Snohomish.  This season they have five teams: a 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U and a 15U.  (Anyone who may be interested in joining in the future can email pilchuckersbaseball@gmail.com — tryouts are typically in August).  The are a federal 501(c)3 non-profit organization — they are all volunteer — none of the administrators or coaches are paid.  They are highly active in giving back to the community and will be doing several food drives, and participating in city clean-up events and working with the local youth baseball leagues to grow the love of baseball in Snohomish. The goal is to give the highest quality youth baseball instruction and experience at an affordable cost.
The 10U, 11U, and 15U teams will start their seasons later this summer, while the 9U and 12U teams have started playing. The 12U team is 6-0 as of press time.
The 9U team will be playing tournaments from now through July.  In fact, they have already played in an indoor tournament in Chehalis last month — which was a great early season warm up.  The 9U team is managed by Travis Clark. Coaches are Barry Walsh, Gary Craig and Lance Duce.
The 10U team will start it’s tournament season in June and run through July.  This year’s team consists of mostly North Snohomish Little League players who compete in the AA and AAA divisions. The 10U team is managed by Seth Green and coached by Joseph Davis.
The 11U team will start it’s tournament season in June and run through July.  This year’s team consists of mostly North Snohomish Little League players who compete in the AAA and Majors divisions.  The 11U team is managed by Al Kelly and coached by Rob Pugmire and Jesse Galle.
The 12U team is the team that started it all 3 seasons ago — and the Pilchuckers Youth Baseball Club was born. This season, the 12U team will be playing in the WSSBL (Washington State Select Baseball League) with National affiliation to the American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC). All home games will be played Sundays (double-headers) at Pilchuck Park.  They will also travel all over the Pacific Northwest this summer and represent Snohomish in highly competitive tournaments. 
The 12U team is managed by Jesse Podoll.  Coaches are Elijah MacDicken, Joey Hammer, and Tyler Hale.
The 15U Pilchuckers team consists of players that are playing High School baseball, so they will be picking back up in June where they will be playing in the WSSBL as well.  The 15U team is managed by Corey Miller and coached by Damien Keyes.

Doug’s Sports Update

The wet weather finally subsided for a while last week to allow many of the spring sports teams to get caught up on games that have been rained-out for much of the first part of the season.
The reigning 4A State champion Snohomish Panthers softball team has been red-hot this year. And while the rain has caused them to play a rather hap-hazard schedule, the team continues to pound out the runs as they have scored in double-digits in all but one of their games this year. As of the start of this week the Panthers have outscored their opposition 123-14. Coach Lou Kennedy said that just about every member of the team has been hot at the plate this year, while both Rylie Wales and Sami Reynolds have lead the team in hits. Kennedy also credited both Bailey Greenlee and Reynolds with “lights out” pitching this season as the two team up to strike out opposing batters. As of Monday, the Panthers (8-1, 7-0 league) lead in the Wesco 3A north by four games over Marysville-Pilchuck, Marysville-Getchell and Stanwood, who are all tied for second. They also lead the Wesco 3A south’s first place team, Edmonds-Woodway, by one game.
The Panther girls soccer team also keeps on rolling along as they entered this week undefeated at 7-0 (3-0 league).
The Panther boys soccer team has won four of their past five games, as they trail first-place Edmonds-Woodway by one game in the Wesco 3A. The Panthers could catch up with E-W this week. as the two play each other on Thursday, April 20.

Doug’s sports update

The unusually wet weather that has plagued the Northwest last month has laid havoc on high school spring sports schedules this year. Numerous baseball and softball games along with tennis matches have had to been postponed and rescheduled, including a few last week. However, a few teams were able to find time to get in a game or two despite the rain.

The Snohomish Panthers were one of the teams that saw limited play last week, however when they did play they continued their offensive attack. The Panthers (4-1, 3-0 league) beat the Stanwood Spartans 11-0 on Thursday, March 30 to continue their streak of games with 10 or more runs. The Panthers look forward to next week when they will play four games in four days in hope of catching up on rained-out games. At the start of this week the Panthers were a half game behind the first-place Spartans in the Wesco 3A north division.
The Grizzlies opened the season with a 20-3 win over Arlington, and have won two of five games in the first two weeks of the season. While their cross-valley neighbors at Snohomish were having games postponed last week, the Grizzlies (3-3, 2-1 league) were fortunate to get in all three of their games. On Monday, March 27, they beat Mount Vernon 13-3. Lost to Jackson 7-2, and then returned to beat Mariner 28-3 on Friday.
After winning three straight, including beating both Bothell and Cascade with an identical 13-0 score, the Bearcats (5-3, 1-1 league) lost 2-1 to the Jackson Timberwolves on Friday.

Baseball

before the Bearcats played their home opener against Bishop Blanchet High of Seattle. Monroe shut out the opposing team 8-0.

The bond also built a new softball field at Monroe High, and is paying for the new Park Place Middle School, improvements at Salem Woods Elementary and an expansion project at Hidden River Middle School.
