A home-schooled junior, Beretta had five goals and an assist to lead Everett to a 15-2 win over Burlington-Edison last Friday. The win kept Everett undefeated this season and in a tie for first place with Stanwood and Kamiak.

For the week, the 6-0, 165-pound attackman and No. 2 scorer in the state, delivered 29 points (22g, 7a) in three games, bringing his six-game season-total to 41 points including 28 goals and 13 assists.

Described as a dynamic offensive player with extraordinary stick skills that compliment his physical fitness on the field, Beretta is following in the footsteps of his older brother Jameson. Last spring the elder Beretta, who excelled as a defender with Everett, earned All-Conference honors and a spot on the men’s lacrosse roster with NCAA Division III Aurora University in Illinois.

Other Everett Herald honorees include: Sara Johnson, Lake Stevens, Softball; Jacob Hunnewell and Garrett Walsh, Meadowdale, Baseball; Brandon Wright, Kamiak, Boys Soccer; Chris Diaz, Shorewood, Boys Track; Sidney Trinidad, Arlington, Girls Track; Emmi Modahl and Natalie Mackey, Arlington, Girls Golf; Emily Sandquist, Jackson, Girls Tennis.
