Dec. 21 – Former Burlington-Edison High School golfer Conrad Brown got off to a good start in his freshman year with the Western Washington men’s team.

On his college debut in September, Brown finished tied for first place at the Saint Martin’s Invitational, where he landed a 7 under par 209 over 54 holes.

In October, he finished tied for fourth in the Chico State Wildcat Classic (6-over 77-73-150) and tied for 17th at the Otter Invitational in Seaside, Calif. (10-over 76-75-75- 226).

Former Mount Vernon star Austin Darnell is in his senior season at Western and was named to the Great Northwest Athletic Conference all-varsity squad earlier this year.

Heather Hanson, an Anacortes graduate, placed in two competitions in her senior season with the Brigham Young University women’s cross country team.

She finished ninth at the Fall Classic (18 minutes, 13.7 seconds, 5 km) and 44th at the FSU Open (22: 24.8, 6 km).

Coby Calvin, a Mount Vernon graduate, a 6-1, 195-pound junior defensive back, has appeared in eight games for the Wagner football team.

He recorded 15 solo tackles, seven assists, two tackles for a loss and one interception for the school in Staten Island, New York.
