They dreamed big. But Chuck and Elena Stowell never imagined things would snowball quite like they have. Or in such magical fashion. The Kent couple lost their only daughter, Carly, on April 12, 2007 of an acute cardiac arrhythmia.

Jeff Bernard put Kent into the unlimited hydroplane winner’s circle on Sunday.
Fresh off a 44-7 rout of the Kitsap County Bears in their season opener, the King County Jaguars will play host to the British Columbia Spartans in the annual Cornucopia Bowl minor league football on Saturday at French Field.
They started out 20 years ago playing basketball together in a Kent Parks Department league. And they’re still playing. Then, they decided to form a softball team. And they’re still playing that in Kent, too. And guys such as Glenn Watkins, Rich Marlow and brothers Steve and Mike Redmond don’t see the end in sight.
The Northwest Warriors, a Kent-based team that draws players from Kent, Auburn and Enumclaw, has earned a trip to the Continental Amateur Baseball Association World Series.
Campy Campolo doesn’t always have the best view of the football action. By design, someone’s often right in her way. Campolo – who just finished a community college automotives degree and played softball and tennis at Jefferson High School in Auburn – is a fullback. And an outside linebacker. And a woman.
