Klein makes alma mater’s Hall of Fame

Hoquiam resident Gretchen (Knutzen) Klein was inducted into the Burlington-Edison High School Athletic Hall of Fame last week.

As Gretchen Knutzen, she graduated from Burlington-Edison in 1978, twice earning all-Northwest League recognition in basketball and once in volleyball. She was also a member school record-setting 4x220-yard relay team in track.

Twice named Skagit Valley College’s Female Athlete of the Year for her exploits in basketball, volleyball and softball, she was also an all-conference performer in basketball and softball. Her father, Gary Knutzen, is also a member of the Burlington-Edison Hall of Fame.

Klein is currently one of the state’s top female amateur golfers.
