Stars of the week
Seattle Times Stars of the Week for April 1-6.
Prep sports gear
The junior right-hander tossed a five-inning perfect game as the Bruins blasted Mariner, 20-0. How overpowering was Dye? He struck out 11 of 15 batters and threw first-pitch strikes to 12, going to a three-ball count only once. "He definitely had his best stuff working," coach Scott Stencil wrote in an email.
Inglemoor track and field
A victory in the 200 meters at the Birger Solberg Invitational Saturday in Bellingham was satisfying for Monson, a senior. She ran a personal-best 26.22. But she got a bigger kick being part of two winning relays. "I love the relays," Monson said. "They're my favorite part of the meet." And to top things off, the Vikings took the team title with 124.5 points.
Lindbergh boys track and field team
Lindbergh is a Class 2A school, but coach Jef Rettmann's squad beat some 4A teams to win the Arnie Young Invitational in Renton with 85 points, well ahead of Kentwood (71). They got victories from Evan Lamb (400), Mitchell Hughey (800) and Mohamud Abdi (1,600) and used their depth to pull away.
Track and field
Eason Invitational, Saturday at Snohomish High School
If you can't make it over the mountains for the Pasco Invitational, this is the place to be, with nearly 50 teams competing. The boys hammer starts at 8 a.m., with a full round of field events set for 10 a.m., when the first running events are also begin.
Stars of the week are selected by The Seattle Times staff and published Tuesdays. Nominations may be emailed by Sunday night to firstname.lastname@example.org.
