Prep Notebook | Thieves hit Lynnwood field again

Wiring to the lights at Lynnwood High School's baseball field was stolen last weekend, and repairs will cost an estimated $25,000, according to Terri McMahan, Edmonds School District director of athletics.

It was the second time in two months that copper thieves have struck at Lynnwood. The theft in late January cost about $16,000 to repair, McMahan said. She said the field is isolated, making it an "easy target."

Repairs will begin today and will take about a week, McMahan said. Additional security measures are planned.

The field is widely used by the community, including youth leagues. With Lynnwood's field unavailable for night games, those leagues are "scrambling like crazy" to find places to play, said McMahan.

Wire and metal theft has become common, with the estimated cost of stolen property around the state in the millions of dollars.

Sammamish football

assistant promoted

Edd Webb has been promoted to head football coach at Sammamish High School.

Webb was an assistant last season, coaching linebackers, tight ends and special teams. He previously coached freshmen at Mountlake Terrace High School.

Webb is a former three-sport high-school athlete in Virginia, and played international rugby while living in Bermuda.

He replaces Chris Bennett, who resigned after one season to become head coach at Issaquah. The Totems of the tough KingCo 3A Conference were 2-8 last fall, but finished the season with about 100 players in the program.

"There is a lot of football excitement in the building," Webb said. "Sammamish football is a program with a lot of potential."

Sackville won't

return to Skyline

Jodi Sackville, who coached Skyline for four seasons before taking a leave of absence for health reasons, won't return as the school's girls basketball coach, athletic director Jeff Chandler announced.

Sackville, 28, was diagnosed in 2006 with pleurisy, a respiratory disease. Chandler said she is healthy, but has decided not to coach at Skyline again.

C.J. Sealey coached the Spartans on an interim basis this season, taking the team to a 23-5 record and seventh in the Class 3A state tournament.

Sackville is a former standout player at Issaquah High School and Pepperdine University, where she later was an assistant coach. She was named coach at Skyline for the 2002-03 season, and had a 60-43 record in four seasons at the Sammamish Plateau school.


Angie Bjorklund, a 6-foot-1 senior from University High School of Spokane, has been named to the Parade magazine All-America girls basketball first team. The University of Tennessee recruit, a three-time Parade All-American, averaged 24.6 points this season. Alex Montgomery, a senior guard from Lincoln of Tacoma who is headed to Georgia Tech, was named to the fourth team.

Cam Vickers, a three-time all-league boys player from Auburn Riverside, has signed a letter of intent to play college soccer for Sonoma State in Rohnert Park, Calif.
