WSU baseball team dismisses Stilley

Former Central Kitsap High School pitcher David Stilley is no longer with the Washington State University baseball team.

The team dismissed Stilley two weeks ago as the result of a marijuana-related citation, WSU head coach Don Marbut said last week.

Stilley, 21, was arrested Nov. 4 in Pullman for possession of marijuana less than 40 grams and unlawful use of drug paraphernalia, according to a police report provided by the Whitman County District Court.

Marbut said Stilley’s arrest was a violation of team rules.

Stilley, played two seasons with the Cougars after sitting out his freshman season due to elbow surgery.

The former Central Kitsap pitcher compiled a 2-2 record with a 6.75 ERA in seven starts as a sophomore last season. He appeared in 18 games as a redshirt freshman, totaling a 3-3 record with a 4.63 ERA in nine starts.

Stilley led Central Kitsap in 2007 to its first trip to the state tournament in 11 years. Marbut said Stilley has options to transfer, but he’s not sure if he’s made a decision at this point.

A family member of Stilley’s declined to comment when contacted by the Central Kitsap Reporter.
