Inglemoor kicker and soccer star Anthony Arena has been selected to the U.S. national under-20 soccer team and will train in Madrid, Spain, in November to prepare for the CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football) Under-20 World Cup qualifying in early 2009.
Arena, a Kenmore resident, plays for the Crossfire Premier soccer club and was named to the 4A Kingco first-team special-teams squad last year.
Arena will be joining a squad that boasts nine professional players, including a pair from Germany and Italy.
In its last regular-season match, Bothell earned its 10th league win by sweeping Inglemoor, 25-13, 25-15, 25-12, at Inglemoor last Tuesday.
For the Cougars, who finished atop the 4A Kingco standings, Charnele Odingo shined with 19 kills, Anna Buck contributed 37 assists and four service aces and libero Zoe Iida had 14 digs.
For the Vikings (3-8, 3-10), Tess Parent had 13 assists and 10 digs, while libero Kendra Cotton dug up 13 balls during the match.
The Cougars (10-1, 11-2) began 4A Kingco playoff action on Tuesday, after the Reporter’s deadline.
Runners from Bothell and Inglemoor took three of the top six spots at Saturday’s 4A Bi-District Championship meet at Lincoln Park in Seattle.
Viking Billy Wilkens ran the 5,000-meter course in 16:02 to finish fourth, and Cougar Trey Parry (16:03) and Alan Villavicencio (16:05) placed fifth and sixth, respectively.
Parry’s time of 16:03 was his personal record in the 5,000 meters.
