Bothell’s Tyson, Medjo named to KingCo 4A first-team

Bothell seniors Jake Medjo and Cameron Tyson were named to the all-KingCo first-team list in a vote by conference coaches on Monday.

Medjo, a 6-foot-10 post, has been among the dominant players in the conference this winter, helping the Cougars to a conference championship and an appearance in the KingCo tournament title game.

Tyson has led the Cougars (16-5) in scoring with 21.5 points per game, the highest mark among KingCo 4A players.

Senior sharpshooter Josh Kollman picked up a second-team nod, along with Inglemoor’s Jaxon Peay.

Bothell seniors Izaiah Clark and JR Plourd and Inglemoor seniors Ryan Hamilton and Jalen Woodley made the all-conference honorable mention list.

Inglemoor’s Greg Lowell was named Coach of the Year. Vikings (10-11) swept Bothell in the regular season and picked up wins over Skyline and Issaquah before losing to Bothell in the conference semifinals.

The Vikings are set to play Woodinville in a loser-out game on Thursday at Lake Washington High School in Kirkland with a chance at qualifying for the regional round of the postseason.

Issaquah senior Tanner Davis was named the all-conference MVP. Newport won the team sportsmanship award.
