Jessica Denmon and Nicole Mowbray of the Oak Harbor High School girls team and Mike Washington on the boys side topped the local teams’ selections to the all-Wesco North basketball teams.
Denmon, who received the second most votes from her Wesco opponents, and Mowbray, who finished third in the voting, were both chosen for the all-Wesco six-girl first team.
Monroe’s Suzanna Ohlsen was the top vote getter. Lake Stevens’ Stephanie Schumacher, Arlington’s Quinn Kesselring and Monroe’s Sammi Clark rounded out the first-team squad. Ohlsen is a junior; the others are all seniors.
Denmon edged Ohlsen for the league scoring title, 19.8 points per game to 19.6. Mowbray was fourth in Wesco North scoring with a 13.7 average.
Denmon was first-team all-league last year; Kesselring and Schumacher second team; and Ohlsen, Clark and Mowbray honorable mention.
Washington, for the second year in a row, was chosen for the all-Wesco North second team.
He finished second in Wesco North scoring, averaging 18 points per game. Lake Stevens’ Shane Kaska led the league with a 19.8 average.
The Wesco North five-boy first team included four seniors, Kaska, Stanwood teammates Kale Schmidt and Zack Johnson, and Cascade’s Chris McGrath; and junior Eric Carlson of Arlington.
Kaska, Schmidt, Johnson and McGrath were all first-team selections last year.
Washington, who finished seventh in the voting and four points from making the first team, was one of two sophomores on the second team.
