The Cascade Conference announced its fall 2017 all-conference teams, and a number of South Whidbey High School student athletes are on the list.

The Falcon volleyball team was well-represented on the list, with five all-conference selections. Seniors Kolby Heggenes (outside hitter) and Bailey Todd (setter) and junior Emma Leggett (outside hitter) made the cut for the Cascade Conference first team. Two Falcons were named on the second team,senior Megan Miller (middle hitter) and junior Angelina Wilson (libero).

Freshman cross country runner Kaia Swegler Richmond was named to the All-Cascade first team, with junior Alexandra Kurtz making the second team. It was Kurtz’ first year running on the Falcon girls cross country team.

South Whidbey High School had a couple of its soccer players named to the girls all-conference second team, too. Sophomore Allison Papritz and senior Mikayla Hezel both made the cut as all-conference forwards.

Coach Terry Swanson took home the title as Coach of the Year in his first season. Swanson is also a coach for South Whidbey Youth Soccer Club.

South Whidbey football players weren’t selected because the Falcons played outside the conference as an independent team this year.
