Two former peninsula athletes have started the fall 2019 collegiate season on hot streaks for their respective teams.

Zack Tuttle, a 2018 Kenai Central grad, is a freshman for Whatcom Community College (Washington) and scored an early goal against Evergreen State College in Bellingham, Washington, last Thursday, his first of his career with the Orcas.

Tuttle helped the Kardinal boys soccer team to its first Alaska state championship in program history in May 2018. Tuttle is one of three Whatcom players to score this season through three games, and is only one of four players to to start every game thus far for Whatcom (1-2 overall).

Tuttle’s goal came early, just 5 minutes, 25 seconds, into the game.

In volleyball, 2018 Soldotna grad Shaylyn Zener has gotten off to a fast start this season with Southwestern Oregon Community College, where she has tallied 10 or more digs in all four games for the team, as well as 10 of her last 11 games dating back to 2018.

The sophomore defensive specialist is ranked fourth in the Northwest Athletic Conference with 61 digs this year, including a single-game best of 29.
