Ex-Bruin Munger named GNAC pitcher of the year
Munger, a sophomore, led the GNAC in victories during the regular season with 20 and finished second in earned-run average at 2.56.
She also was named to the All-GNAC first team as a shortstop. She led the conference in hitting, posting a .416 average, with four home runs and 36 RBI.
Munger's efforts helped the Saints to a 36-13 regular-season record and the GNAC championship. Her coach, Rick Noren, earned GNAC coach-of-year-honors, and her teammate Lacey McGladrey was named player of the year.
Munger, a graduate of Cascade High School in Everett, was one of two Snohomish County players named to the GNAC first team. She was joined by Western Washington outfielder Alexie Levin, a freshman from Everett.
Western infielder Kristen Allen, a senior from Arlington, made the second team.
Track and Field
Arrigoni sets record
Catie Arrigoni of Everett Community College broke the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges record in the steeplechase on April 26.
Competing in the Western Washington University Twilight Meet at Civic Field in Bellingham, Arrigoni won the race in 10 minutes, 59.70 seconds. Her time broke the meet record, the Everett CC mark (which she already held) and the previous NWAACC record of 11:07.67.
"This was only the third time in her career that she's run the steeple," Everett coach Matt Koenigs said in an e-mail. "The time would rank her (No.) 92 nationally (in) all collegiate classifications -- D1, D2, D3, NAIA."
Arrigoni, a sophomore from Oroville, has accepted a track scholarship to Eastern Washington University, Koenigs said.
Kamiak grad wins shot put
Marisa Gonzalez, a 2012 graduate of Kamiak High School and a freshman at Pacific Lutheran University, threw a personal best of 41 feet, 51/4 inches to win the women's shot put at the Northwest Conference Track and Field Championships in Salem, Ore.
Gonzalez's winning toss came on the first of her six attempts. She also placed seventh in the javelin in the April 26 event at McCulloch Stadium on the campus of Willamette University.
Gonzalez was recruited in two sports by PLU. In the fall she was the starting goalkeeper on the Lutes' women's soccer team and was honorable mention all-conference.
