Seattle Times prep athletes of the week
Cody Anderson, Marysville-Pilchuck baseball
Big arm, big bat – Anderson displayed both last week in a pair of victories over Everett. First, he threw a five-inning, no-hitter in a 16-0 win, striking out nine. Later in the week, playing at first base, he had two doubles, two runs batted in and two runs scored in a 7-2 triumph. “Cody has been awesome on the mound for us for two-plus years,” coach Kurt Koshelnik said. “He competes and has a great knowledge of what he is trying to do with each batter.”
Ta’Mara Richey, Federal Way girls track and field
Richey swept three individual events at the Oregon Relays and was part of the Eagles’ winning 400 relay team, helping the girls and boys combine for the overall coed title. She ran a career-best 12.51 in the 100, sailed a state-leading 18 feet, 6 inches in the long jump and logged a season-high 35-6¾ in the triple jump. “Ta’Mara fully displayed her all-around track and field talent,” coach Quinn Gillis said. “She is my senior captain whose unparalleled leadership on and off the field allow her to excel.”
Archbishop Murphy boys golf team
Coach John Servold’s Wildcats became only the third different team to win the Tom Dolan Invitational, now in its 13th year. They edged Kamiak, the three-time defending champion, 313-320. Previously, Jackson had been the only other school to win. Ben Thacker shot an even-par 72 and was in a first-place tie for medalist honors before losing on the first playoff hole.
