Having beaten the Panthers 82-52 in Everett on Dec. 11, the Bruins made it two for two as they defeated the Panthers 58-46 in what has become a traditional rivalry between the two schools. The win, along with a 93-67 win over the Mount Vernon Bulldogs on Friday, Jan. 22, keeps the Bruins undefeated with just three weeks remaining in the regular season.
The Panthers (5-10, 2-7 league) took an 80-60 loss to the Jackson Timberwolves on Friday to drop into a three way tie for last place in the Wesco 4A along with Mount Vernon and the Monroe Bearcats. The game may also be the last between the two longtime rivals as the Panthers will move to 3A status next year and Glacier Peak bumps up to 4A.

The Snohomish girls basketball team defeated the Bearcats of Monroe 45 to 42 in a close game between the heretofore undefeated teams at a game Friday, Jan. 15 at Monroe. The Panthers built an early lead and held off the Bearcats in the closing seconds of play. With Snohomish holding a 29 to 9 lead in the second quarter it appeared the Panthers would cruise to an easy victory. The Bearcats came out strong during the second half, closing to within three points of the Panthers, but lack of execution at the free throw line caused the Bearcats to come up short.

Jared Cogar signs to attend Central and pitch for the Wildcats

With his parents Mike and Staci at his side, MHS senior and varsity baseball pitcher Jared Cogar recently signed his letter of intent to play baseball at Central Washington University.

Monroe High senior and varsity baseball player Jared Cogar has signed with Central Washington University to pitch for the Wildcats in Fall of 2016.
Cogar, son of Staci and Mike Cogar, visited the campus several times before deciding where to attend college. He was looking for a school with a good baseball team and a good criminal justice program, but he also had his eye on what extracurricular opportunities were available nearby.
“I like Ellensburg – it has good fishing and hunting areas which I am passionate about. I like river fishing for salmon,” he said. While he said the salmon fishing here in the Skykomish River can’t be beat, Ellensburg has good trout fishing.
Cogar’s reason for pursuing a career in criminal justice ties into his passions. “I am interested in being a fish and wildlife warden,” he said. “It might change, but that’s what I have my mind set on for right now.”
He has been playing baseball for Monroe for several years and also plays on a select team. “I pretty much play year round,” he explained.
At Central, he will be practicing every single day after he is done with classes, and then travel on weekends leaving little time to fish and hunt. “Once you get into the high caliber, competitive levels of baseball, there’s a lot of travel,” Cogar explained
He leaves Monroe with nice things to say about his years in the Monroe Public Schools. “We have really supportive teachers at Monroe,” he said. “If our baseball team had more kids on it, that would be great, but I like our coaches. They are good guys.”

Glacier Peak ends state tourney run

It wasn’t just the frigid night air that was cold at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Snohomish on Saturday, Nov. 21. The Glacier Peak Grizzly offense was also cold, racking up just 110 total yards and one touchdown in the 35-14 loss to the Bellevue Wolverines in the 3A State quarterfinal game.
After stopping the Wolverines in the game’s opening drive, the Grizzlies marched down field and scored on a 35 yard catch and run by senior receiver Justin Guffey. After that, though, it was all Wolverines as Bellevue rang up 35 unanswered points to defeat the Grizzlies for the sixth straight time in the last seven years.
The Grizzlies only other touchdown came on a Wolverine fumble late in the fourth quarter that was picked up by senior linebacker Zach Argue who took it 43 yards down field for six-points. The Grizzlies have faced the Wolverines four times in State tournament play in the past seven years and have seen their season come to a close each time. The Wolverines who have won the state 3A title 11 times have also beaten the Grizzlies twice during regular season play including a 24-6 win over the Grizzlies in Snohomish on October 2.
Glacier Peak’s season comes to a close at 10-2 (both losses to Bellevue) as their hopes of reaching the State finals in the Tacoma Dome were dashed again.
