NK’s Rabedeaux signs with Jamestown

When Cole Rabedeaux heads to college, the chances of him feeling homesick are small.

The Olympic League 2A MVP in basketball signed to play with University of Jamestown in North Dakota earlier this month.
When he gets to the NAIA school, he’ll be living with his brother Beaux, who is a sophomore on the baseball team. Beau is one off 11 Kitsap players on the Jimmies’ baseball roster. They’re ranked No. 8 in the NAIA coaches poll.

So he’ll have somebody to show him where the book store is.

“My brother is my best friend,” Cole said.

Jamestown started pursuing Cole before the season and offered him a scholarship early in the season after getting some film. Cole had offers from several Northwest Athletic Conference schools and other Division II schools.

But it was what Jamestown offered that got him there. Rabedeaux hops to play basketball overseas when his college days are over. Jamestown has sent players to far-off leagues.

For now, he’s working out and shooting and waiting to join his brother in North Dakota.

Bremerton’s Dubos headed to George Fox

Bremerton senior Cameron Dubos is one of West Sound’s top three-sport athletes, playing baseball this spring after participating in tennis in the fall and wrestling in the winter.

He’ll be heading to George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon, after graduation to play tennis. George Fox is a NCAA Division III program.

Dubos qualified for the 2A singles state tennis tournament as a junior. He was the third seed out of the Olympic League as a senior, but was knocked out in district play.

Dubos is a two-time state runner-up in wrestling and is a starting outfielder for the baseball team.

North Kitsap linebacker Evans commits to Linfield

As soon as North Kitsap linebacker Bob Evans learned Linfield University was interested in him, he knew where he wanted to go to that school.

Linfield has a special place in his heart. His uncle, Tony, played there. He was a freshman on the national championship team in 1984 before his career was cut short because of injury. His family is from the McMinnville, Oregon, area.

Linfield expressed interest in January. It took a few months between financial aid and other reasons before all the pieces fell into place, but he committed to the Wildcats a few weeks ago.

“It hasn’t really set in,” Evans said. “I’m super excited. I still can’t get over the fact that I’m going to that school with such a great football program and that history.”

Linfield is an NCAA Division III power that dominates the Northwest League. The program has won four national championships in football.

Evans was a three-year starter at linebacker for the Vikings. As a junior and senior he was named Olympic League 2A defensive MVP and Associated Press All-State football second team.

He’s been told he’ll stay at linebacker, either middle or possibly outside backer.

WIAA concludes investigation into Bellevue football program

The Washington Interscholastic Activities Association completed its fact-finding investigation regarding the Bellevue High School football program on Thursday and presented it to the school district.

Here is the press release in it’s entirety;

Fact-Finding Report for Bellevue High School Complete

RENTON – The results of an independent fact-finding of alleged violations toward the Bellevue High School football program are complete.  The fact-finding report has been presented to the Bellevue School District for them to review.

The fact-finding examined five specific allegations as requested by the Bellevue School District in August 2015.

The results of the independent fact-finding of the alleged violations include facts regarding four of the five allegations that:

  • Coaches directed athletes to attend the Academic Institute
  • Boosters paid for tuition of athletes at the Academic Institute
  • False addresses for athletes were utilized to gain eligibility
  • Coaches coordinated tuition payments for athletes

The fact-finding concluded that there was not sufficient information to support the fifth allegation that athletes received subsidized housing to gain eligibility.  The report also details additional areas of concern that arose during the course of the fact-finding.
 
The Bellevue School District is committed to a thorough review and a timely response to all information included in the fact-finding report.  Per WIAA process, Bellevue High School will report on the findings to the KingCo League. 
 
“Our mission is to ensure that all students in the state are competing on a fair and level playing field,” said WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese.  “The Association provides structure and process for schools and districts to ensure there is accountability.”
 
Due to the ongoing process of review, the WIAA and the Bellevue School District will not provide additional comments or statements at this time.
