Bishop Blanchet has promoted Brett Hecko, assistant girls basketball coach, to head coach of the boys team.

Hecko, 33, succeeds Jerry Carr, 63, who retired as Blanchet coach in February after 10 seasons as head coach of the Braves and 27 as a head coach in his career.

Hecko teaches history at Blanchet, and athletic director George Monica said there was no need to look outside the building with qualified candidates inside.

Hecko has been on the Blanchet girls basketball staff under Terry Wilkinson for a total of eight years and was a graduate assistant at Seattle Pacific for women's basketball in 2001-2002.

Hecko grew up in Indiana and played at DePauw University from 1988-92. He is married and has two children.

Both the Blanchet boys and girls are coming off winning seasons. The boys were 13-10 and the girls were 20-11 and finished fifth at the Class 3A state tournament.


• Redmond senior Mary Martineau, a three-time All-KingCo 4A Conference opposite-side hitter, has signed to play volleyball next season at Western Oregon, an NCAA Division II school in Monmouth, Ore.
Martineau, a 5-foot-9 left-hander, played a major role for a Redmond team that last year finished 23-7 overall, won the KingCo 4A championship and earned the program's first state-tournament berth since 1998.

Jesse Moon, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound pitcher on the Interlake baseball team, has committed to play next season at Saint Martin's College in Lacey. Moon has missed much of this season because of illness, but went 9-1 with a 1.22 earned-run average while playing for Taylor Baseball of Bellevue last summer. He attends International School in Bellevue.

• For the second consecutive year, Seattle Prep junior catcher Max Kwan has been selected to represent the national Babe Ruth League all-star team in the Major League Baseball-sponsored 2004 USA Baseball Tournament of Stars. The tournament is scheduled for June 21-28 in Joplin, Mo., and will also give Kwan a chance to compete for a spot on the 2004 USA Baseball junior national team.

Colin Adams, a two-time All-KingCo 4A midfielder at Juanita, has committed to play soccer next season at Montana State.
