Bonney Lake High School

• Dylan Brown accepted a baseball scholarship from the University of Oregon and will suit up for the Ducks of the Division I Pacific 10 Conference. Brown voted 2008 All-League pitcher and first base in the South Puget Sound League, 3A. He was also chosen as honorable mention All-Area pitcher and All-State pitcher. He was voted in as the 2009 Bonney Lake High School Co-captain.
