Zach Walton, Morton HS / Morton, WA, averaged 27.5 points per game in leading the Tritons to road victories at Whatcom and Peninsula. Walton tallied 34 points, 19 rebounds and 5 assists while surpassing the 1000 point career mark at Whatcom. Against Peninsula he notched another double double, scoring 21 points, with 12 rebounds,
5 steals, and 3 assists.
The 6'6" sophomore is averaging 20.9 ppg (6th best in NWAC), and
9.4 rpg (4th best in NWAC) overall. Walton has led the Tritons to three straight road wins as the team is now in a position to clinch a playoff spot with a win at Skagit Valley Wednesday.
"Zach has been great all season but this past week he has really stepped up," said EdCC head coach Kyle Gray. "Zach has led us to 2 huge road wins while we are in the thick of a playoff race. His scoring has been great but his rebounding and defense are what have been most impressive. He also joined the 1,000 point club as a Triton this week. He is playing his best basketball at the right time."
