Proud moments on the court for all players as they held composure and played with a "never give up" effort. Great season ladies!

Rhythm and flow was missing but the girls powered through! Losing the first set 27-29, the girls responded with sets 25-16,25-19,25-23 to claim victory. Our signature serving of 96% kept us in the mix. Alyssa Moran and Lauren Culp were our serving specialist for the night and did a fantastic job. Alyssa served 100% off the bench with 3 aces and Jenna Legault racked up 4 aces! With the aid of our two setters(Avarye Monsef and Jenna Milner) our hitters racked up 37 kills. Nora Hayd and Jenna Legault had 12 kills a piece while Ashley Baron, Tessa Hoover and Haedyn Bambolo each contributed 4 kills. Nadia Rios was our most consistent passer in the back row while our blockers made great adjustments at the tape compiling 13 blocks for the night. (Ashley Baron-2, Haedyn Bamboo -2, Jenna Legault- 3, Jenee Hall -4 and Tessa Hoover-1).
With that under out belts. Loser-out round 2 Thurs night versus Issaquah 5pm at Glacier Peak HS. We have not found success against Issaquah yet this season but we will prepare well!...3rd time's a charm!! Go big Blue!!

October 30 recap:
FOOTBALL: Freshman Football: The Freshman team traveled to Eastlake last night and lost their first game of the year 46-34. We started off in a hole down 21-0 but rallied back to tie 34-34 late in the 4th quarter. A celebration penalty after we scored a 2 point conversion to tie set us up with bad field position. Eastlake scored on their next possession on a deep pass to go ahead. Dylan Jones threw 5 TD passes; 1 to John Carlo Fogliato and Clint Thomas had 4 TD catches. Clint had a great night on Offense and came up with some big plays when we needed him the most. Marcus Davies also caught a 2 point conversion. Cody Petrin did a great job running the ball. Cody had several carries for 120 plus yards and kept the Cougar offense rolling. The Cougars gave up an Interception for a TD on the second play of the game and we also stalled on a great offensive drive to the Eastlake 2 yard line. The young Cougars also struggled with penalties all night. Rudy Podany and Connor Delacada Tompkins were solid up front on both sides of the ball. Connor was very physical and was throwing Wolves around all night as he led the team in tackles. We were very proud of the way the team fought back to tie the game. The boys showed a lot of Heart and gave everything they had.
Great effort in the fight to come back after losing the first 2 sets, but Bothell VB loses to Eastlake in 5.
Statistically we had a solid overall match but set by set play was not consistent enough to win the match. We served a solid 91.3% as a team. Avarye Monsef, Jenna Milner, Lauren Culp were the 100% crew while Jenna Legualt went on a great run to start the 3rd set and piled up 4 aces on the night. Our hitters struggled to find the holes on the floor. Legualt, Nora Hayd, Haedyn Bambolo Ashley Baron had 18, 13, 10 and 5 kills while Tessa Hoover was super efficient with her swings (.500). Nadia Rios had a monster night in the libero jersey passing 1.79 ( out of 3) for the night with 22 digs. Nora Hayd was right next to her passing 1.77 with 19 digs....
AND we live to play again. 10AM at Bothell High School Saturday.
A tale of two halves by BOSO: Playing their last match of the season the JV girls found themselves down 0-3 @ the half to a determined North Creek team. Finding another gear, your Cougs went crazy in the second half scoring 3 goals in 12 minutes to end in a tie totally deflating the confident Jaguars. Eloise Poppenhagen started the scoring w/ a sweet shoot to the lower left corner followed by a cannon shot by Amelia McNeil from 18 yards on a corner kick play. Aly Coyne finished the scoring on a lightening fast break away finding the back of the net. In a total team effort the Cougs went crazy after the match knowing the only thing that stopped them was the final buzzer! If you see Kaitlyn Miller today, ask her about #31. Kaitlyn frustrated the much taller midfielder in the second half sparking our comeback!
CONGRATULATIONS VB!! 4A ACADEMIC STATE CHAMPIONS!! 3.77 GPA
Weekend update October 26
We had a fun day yesterday at the JV Invite! With course conditions not being ideal on a course that already is difficult with lots of obstacles we had lots of great performances and PR's. The boys freshman/sophomores started out the day and despite multiple kids losing shoes in the mud, going down in the mud on the course and the mayhem at the finish line Dalton Retzer and Josh Sieben still ran PR's. In the girls Junior/Senior race Michelle Fairman ran a 5 minute PR! It was challenging course conditions but all the kids ran well and had a good ending to their seasons.
Saturday -- KingoCo championships at Lake Sammamish!
SLOW PITCH:Bothell Slow Pitch Softball team played 3 games in the Kingco Tournament on Saturday. We lost our first game against Woodinville 13-3, but came back and beat Eastlake in extra innings 10-9. Fun game for everyone with so many great defensive plays and big hits.
Our third and last game of the day was against Woodinville again. Our best game of the year. We jumped out to a 4 run lead in the first inning only to have the Falcons come back with 4 of their own in the bottom of the first. We jumped back into the lead in the 2nd and held a 10-7 lead into the bottom of the 7th inning. We gave up 4 runs and lost 11-7 in a heart breaking defeat.
The team played fantastic and were so much fun to coach. We finished the season 12 wins and 9 losses. But, 7 of those loses were to Woodinville. Bothell has no seniors and only one junior on the team. Things look bright for the future of Cougar slow pitch.
This past weekend Johnny Schuller competed in the Kingco Tennis Tournament. Johnny was the #1 singles seeded player. He reached the finals and lost a tough 3 set match to the #2 seeded player from Skyline High School. The score was 2-6, 7-5, 3-6.

Dyllan Graff added another 10 aces, along with 14 kills. Lola Duvey was solid in the back row, with great passing and earning 58 digs. She also had 6 aces. Josie Milner owned the “line shot” Saturday, slamming down 21 kills. Sienna Bell had great play at the net all day adding 9 kills and 1 block. Alaina Lemley was clutch both in the back row and from behind the serving line. She served at 100% and was a great defender and passing all day. Amalie Onener was determined to not let a ball cross the net, ending with 7 blocks on the day. She also earned 18 kills and 6 aces. Elise Yuhan was consistent all day. She had 2 timely blocks and a number of great kills. Leanna Sayavong came through in a big way in her serving and passing roll. Great passing all day, along with 94% serving and 3 aces. Jordan Hayden, on injured reserve, was a rock for us on the bench. Tough to sit there and watch, but she gave great energy and support to her teammates all day.
Congratulate these ladies on an unbelievable season. Winners of both tournaments they entered and a 22-2-1 overall record!
The swim and dive team wrapped up the regular season last night with a great meet! The girls left everything they had in the pool. Anna Erickson dropped four seconds in the 100 backstroke and her team mate Alexandra Fisher drooped three seconds! Haley Kamikawa went a best time in the 100 freestyle and hit the District qualifying time. Sarah Holmes dropped 17 seconds in her 500 free breaking 8:00 minutes for the first time!

For Cougar volleyball your C Team wrapped up their season last night defeating Eastlake in a fun match. They shut down Eastlake keeping them below 10 points the first set 25-9. Yet, questions arose when Eastlake came back fighting tough to take the second set 20-25.

OCTOBER 22 RESULTS
Bothell took on top-seeded Inglemoor last night in another Northshore battle. Heading into the game, Inglemoor had only given up 4 goals in league games, 3 of which came from Skyline. To try and flip the script, we came out in a new formation to try and unsettle Inglemoor and create more opportunities by running a 3-5-2 (3 defenders, 5 mids, 2 forwards).
Inglemoor struck early and was up 2-0, but we responded with great combination play, a great run down the right line by Ella Stroup, which ended with a great cross to the far post which Devon Lipkin finished to make it 2-1. Unfortunately we would go into half down 3-1.
Coming out at half time the goal was to win the half and not focus on the overall score. Inglemoor did make it 4-1, but we were able to sneak a ball into the 18, Devon Lipkin poked the ball past the keeper towards the goal line, and Piper Benson-Gabbard made sure the ball found the net to make it 4-2, or 1-1 in the half. The girls battled the entire game, but it would end 5-2 in the waning seconds.
It was our senior night and we recognized and thanked our 3 seniors for the leadership, toughness, compassion, and guidance this year as they helped develop a young group for the coming years: Ellie Butner, Gabi Redey, and Haley Zirker.
Ava Hudson had a tremendous game by shutting down KingCo's best forward. Rachel Traxler and Isabella Maletich had great games battling in the midfield and moving the ball for us. Devon Lipkin and Piper Benson-Gabbard earned players of the game for their play up top.
Playing rival Inglemoor, your Cougar JV soccer team got a goal in the first minute by Kailey Pantoja followed by a second goal by Meghan Cloninger. The Vikings fought back hard but Bothell held on for a 2-2 tie. Lilly Atkinson was stellar in goal. The amazing center defenders Zobe Murray and Carissa Fieldson shut down the furious assault . Thanks to our fans who were loud and proud !
OCTOBER 21 RESULT:
VOLLEYBALL: Last match tomorrow, Wednesday, as we honor our seniors and play against a competitive Eastlake team at home!
V: They say the road is not worth traveling if it’s always smooth. Our trip to Redmond to face the Mustangs had plenty of bumps in the road. The girls persevered with a win. 25-10, 16-25, 25-21, 25-17. Struggling to execute in sets 2 and 3 brought on the frustration but Jenna Milner came out with an amazing serving run (6 aces) to put her team ahead in the 4th set. Alyssa Moran helped bring some stability with the only 100% serving night and the best passing ratio for the night. Jenna Legault continued to lead the team in kills (13) while Avarye Monsef and Jenee Hall had the highest hiring ratio (.500). Ashley Baron led the team with 13 digs. Hope to bounce as we take on Eastlake this Wednesday.
JV: The JV Volleyball team made quick work of Redmond last night in a 3-0 sweep. Though serving was a little inconsistent, Josie Milner stepped it up in a big way with 11 aces while serving at 93%. Lola Duvey and Eva Winter were also great, serving at 100% on the night. Our attack was balanced, as Dyllan Graff, Elise Yuhan, Eva Winter, Jordan Hayden, & Josie Milner combined for 23 of our 26 kills. Maleah Andrews set them up all night, earning 16 assists. Next up, last regular season match against Eastlake tomorrow night!
C: Taking on the Redmond Mustangs, the C Team volleyball squad swept it up last night beating the Mustangs 25-9, 25-10, 25-6. An aggressive serving match as the team earned a total of 30 aces and an 83.6% serving average for the night.

OCTOBER 16 RECAP:
Freshman Football: The Freshman Team hosted an undefeated Woodinville team last night and Won 26-14. The Offense scored on the second play of the game with a Bryce Kooy 60 yard TD run. Bryce ended up rushing over 200 yards with 3 TD’s including a 95 yard run. Clint Thomas also scored on a 30 yard pass from Dylan Jones. The Cougar Defense was solid last night. The Defense created 3 turnovers; Marcus Davies and Lucas Gerity both had Interceptions. They also had 2 stops after Woodinville got inside the yard line. Rudy Podany, Connor Tompkins Delacada, Rex Radvick and Griffen Ginsberg put pressure on the QB all night. Hubert Thang and Cody Petrin had some great open field tackles. Peter Cecil, Marcus Davies, Lucas Gerity and Bryce Kooy all did an outstanding job closing down their running lanes and defending short passes at Linebacker. The young Cougars played pretty well last night against a tough opponent. The Freshman Team is now 5-0 and travel to MT Si next week. Bryce Kooy will be the first Freshman to suit up this Friday night with Varsity.
Bothell Slow Pitch beat Lake Washington last night 10-5. We were ahead 1-0 in the 5th inning behind the solid pitching of Olivia Lassiter and many great defensive plays by Evie Le Doux, Ava Hauff, and Ryann Osborne.
The timber came alive in the last two innings with huge hits by Baylee Mittendorf, Akemi Ozoa, Zoe Brown, and Grace Tanferani.
It is amazing to see how far this group of kids who love the game of softball has come during this first season of slow pitch.
Another great meet for the swim and dive team! Haley Kamikawa dropped yet another five seconds from her 200IM hitting the District qualifying time! Her sister Katy Kamikawa had a big meet as well by qualifying for KingCo’s in both the 50 and 100 freestyle. Ayzlyn Moriarty will join Katy in the 100 freestyle at Kingco’s as well. Overall we had some great swims and I look forward to seeing what these girls can do in their last dual meet meet next Thursday.
Had a beautiful quartet who sang the National Anthem at the VB match last night... THANK you to Joseph Riggio, Reese Williams, Mia Johnson, Alexia Mangubat! Such a beautiful rendition!
Cougars keep the WHS Falcons from taking flight!
Our lady Cougs beat the Falcons 3-0 last night with a consistent attack at the net. Although not our best team serving night Tessa Hoover and Nora Hayd combined for 11 aces. Cougars put up some monster blocks Bebe Anitei had 2 blocks to lead the team. Jenna Milner and Avarye Monsef set up their hitters for a combined 33 assists. Haedyn Bambolo lead the team with a .455 hitting efficiency (like a batting average) on the pin while Bebe and Tessa Hoover both contributed up a .500 average swinging out of the middle. Senior night and last home match. Come celebrate our seniors ( Nadia Rios, Alyssa Moran) and a great match against Eastlake OCT 23.
JV: Team shut the door on our district rival Woodinville last night, with a 3-0 sweep. Jordan Hayden was unstoppable from behind the line last night, keeping Woodinville guessing where she was serving next. She ended with 10 aces! Eva Winter was her counterpart at the net. Woodinville had no answer for her as she banged away 10 kills in the match. Josie Milner and Sienna Bell were close behind with 7 & 6 kills, respectively. Sienna also had 2 aces in a fantastic night for her. Great passing all around on one of our strongest nights. Lola Duvey, Maleah Andrews (in a rare libero appearance), Eva Winter, Josie Milner & Leanna Sayavong all contributed. Next up, away at Redmond on Monday.
C: Fun match last night for C Team volleyball against the Woodinville Falcons! They achieved one of their season goals last night by being the top C Team squad in Northshore School District. After a slow win Monday night against Skyline, they stepped it up last night against Woodinville beating them 25-13, 25-11 and 25-10. With lots of energy and great communication they were aggressive, strong and played with heart. Great serving night for the team as they achieved an 89% average together. Leading the team in kills Josselin Roy with 6 and Kili Hoke with 5. Defensive/passing leader goes to Skye Sherman with a whopping 18 digs and passing average of 1.86.
Fan version of events: It was a beautiful night to play/watch soccer! Our crowd -- well, they stood, they chanted, they cheered... WOW. It was like being at the Sounders!! And, what a game. Both teams came out to play. What a thrilling game!
COACHES PERSPECTIVE: Soccer last night.
It's hard to put into words the sequence of events that went into yesterday's game. The short story, Bothell lost 1-0 to Woodinville in the last minute of the game. The day started however with an unfortunate reminder that life is hard. It was an opportunity to watch a high school team really become a family, as the entire group rallied around one another and focused on each other rather than a soccer game. Our team meeting became a rally to pump each other up. Our locker room became a dance party heard throughout the stadium. A JV player was welcomed with open arms to help us if needed. Our soccer field became a focal point for everyone to see these girls work their tails off for one another. I couldn't be more proud of every single player on this team.
Taylor Bennett had a fantastic night in our backline and is setting the tone in our backline for years to come. Rachel Traxler was physical the entire night in the middle of the field. Devon Lipkin had arguably her best game of the year. Hannah Cecil was all over the field and created what should have been a penalty kick in the last 30 seconds of the game. Bella Gutierrez was unbelievable in goal, and is making a case for the best keeper in the league. Unfortunately the soccer gods weren't with us as Woodinville scored on a tough long distant shot that Bella initially saved, but rebounded onto the goal line as Woodinville ran on to finish.
The fans were awesome and I hope we get even more support in our last two Northshore games. Taryn Bennett and Bella Gutierrez were players of the game. Onto the next. Proud to be BOSO
Boys tennis played a great match yesterday. Even though the score was 2-5, the boys fought all day against Woodinville. It was a very close match.

Ashley Baron and Tessa Hoover "killed it" by each hitting over .600 for the night. Jenee Hall contributed with 2 timely blocks to help shut the door on the Spartans.
C Team volleyball swept the Skyline Spartans last night. Not our best performance as we played very slow in the second set while the Spartans took an 8 point lead. However, Lily Whitehead had an answer for them when she got behind the end line and served us back to life, which got them back on track. Great serving night for Josselin Roy serving 92% and Kea Skinner serving 100% which includes 5 aces of her own (individual highest) for the night.

The offensive line of Luca Vincic, Elijah Vaotogo, Chris Bailey, Trent Suckut and Jack Winsky opened holes and played physical football against a very tough Falcon defense.
Facing Redmond on Friday.
On Saturday, the varsity soccer team traveled down to Olympia for a non-league game vs. Black Hills High School. Not only was it a great, long day, of team bonding, but we played at one of the nicest high school soccer stadiums I have seen.
The girls were able to focus up and play a great game with solid contributions from every player. 100% effort, playing for each other, supporting one another, being a TEAM, and working to get better every day have been focal points all season. All of these seemed to come together in this game. We had a few injuries and players stepped up when called upon. Players not in the game watched the game with intent and cheered on others on the field. The bus ride home was a mix of a dance party and players asking questions to improve for the next game. It was an awesome 9 hour day to be apart of.
Piper Benson-Gabbard had a solid performance as the post-forward, battling and occupying defenders all night. Hannah Cecil was dangerous in the middle and on the wings, and opened the scoring with a beautiful chip over the keeper off an assist from Ava Hudson. Ellie Butner worked her tail off every second she was on the field. Devon Lipkin scored off a through ball with a hard near post shot. Haley Zirker had her first minutes back in a few weeks and was dangerous and created opportunities for others. Taryn Bennett, Gabi Redey, and Delaney Smith cleaned up chances in the middle of our defense. Kaitlin Baldwin-McCurdy and Bella Gutierrez earned the clean sheet, and both received player of the game in goal as each made great saves, decisions, and distributed the ball well. 2-0 Bothell.
Next up, Woodinville at home on Tuesday.
JV: Playing @ non-league Everett Saturday, the BOSO JV team dominated the home team 3-1. Scoring were Avarey Wilson on a corner kick, followed by Meghan Cloninger and Kailey Pantoja goals. Defense played very strong w/ outside play be Katy Branscomb and Maddie Meno. The team dominated play keeping the ball in the offensive half the majority of the game!
Next up Woodinville @ the POP.
The C Team volleyball team spent their Saturday hosting and competing in an all-day tournament.
They had a great tournament! They were undefeated in pool play beating Mount Lake Terrace (25-9, 25-13) Eastlake (25-7, 25-6) and Jackson (25-19,25-6). During bracket play they beat a pretty good Roosevelt team (25-21, 25-19) which entered them into the semi-finals against Kentwood yet fell short to the tournament winning team (17-25, 17-25). Bothell being the only team that had 9 players compared to all the tournament teams which carried at least 12 on each of their squads, the ladies just ran out of gas against the hard hitting Kentwood team.
These ladies do a great job preparing for competition and should be able to bounce back while we prepare for two home matches.
Skyline (Monday/today) and Woodinville (Wednesday).
OCTOBER 9 RESULTS
The Freshman team beat Skyline last night 66-24 in a very long game. The Defense was relentless scoring 3 touchdowns on fumble recoveries for scoop n’ scores; Peter Cecil had 2 (his third of the year) and Connor Tompkins Delacerda had 1. The defense also forced 2 other fumbles and had 2 Interceptions by Jack Morse and Bryce Kooy. The Cougar Offense had a great night and scored on the ground with Bryce Kooy with 1 TD and Cody Petrin with 2 TD’s. Bryce and Cody did most of the rushing and both rushed over 100 yards each. QB Dylan Jones threw 3 nice TD passes; The first to Clint Thomas on a high jump ball in the corner of the end zone; Lincoln Matson caught a 50 yard TD pass on a deep vertical and Tight End Marcus Davies caught a nice 10 yard TD pass in the back of the end zone. Lucas Gerity made 3 PAT’s and did a great job defensively. Brenna Loken also made her first 2 PAT field goals of the year. Rico Clark got his first catch of the year with a 15 yard reception. It was a great night for the young Cougars. They played very physical and supported each other all night. We might have some tired pup’s at school today after the bus dropped us off at 10pm. The 4-0 Cougars face an undefeated Woodinville team next week.
Varsity soccer took on another talented team in Eastlake. Rumor has it that they have a national team player on their roster.
The game started fast as both teams were dangerous in each other's half of the field. The 1st half was a battle but neither team was able to score. Kaitlin Baldwin-Mccurdy made a huge save to keep it 0-0. The 2nd half started and the battle continued. Unfortunately, Eastlake found the back of the net twice and Bothell was unable to score despite several good chances late in the game. Hannah Cecil was active all night and got behind Eastlake's back line multiple times. Rachel Traxler had a solid game in the middle of the field. Kaitlin and Bella Gutierrez made key saves in goal. Our backline again fought hard all night with contributions from Maddie Barker, Gabi Redey, Delaney Smith, Taryn Bennett, and Ava Hudson. Ava won player of the game again as she was tested all night long. She consistently ran her players down, won tackles, and distributed the ball well. We are playing our best soccer of the season as we head into the Northshore games. COME WATCH US -- OCT 15 VS WHS AT POP K!!

We served at our usual 95% clip but struggled to dig a ball. Cougars bounce so we will be back at it next week. Live to play another day!!
The JV Volleyball Team got back on the winning track last night with a clean sweep over North Creek. The first set was rough at times, as the girls tried to control their adrenaline while playing against their cross-town rivals. Great serving runs by Amalie Onener, Jordan Hayden & Elise Yuhan helped keep the pressure on North Creek. They combined for 14 of the team’s 23 aces. Elise and Amalie also played great at the net. Along with Eva Winter, they each earned 6 kills on the night. Sienna Bell also had a great hitting night, chipping in 3 kills. Solid passing from the team all night: Lola Duvey, Maleah Andrews, Alaina Lemley and Leanna Sayavong all passed well.

Cody Winkelman's putter was on FIRE! He drained a 40+ foot putt for birdie on #2 and finished the round with a 30+ foot putt on 9. I have never witnessed anyone sinking two ridiculously long putts in the same round! Nice work Cody!
Next stop is Districts- Anthony Sendejas, Evan Deforest, Parker Haney, Cody Winkelman, Connor Kim, and Derek Rodriguez will be representing Bothell as the top 6 on the team this year. Good luck boys!

The Freshman team finished the clean sweep of North Creek last night with a 20-0 Victory. The Cougar defense was solid last night and created 4 turnovers. The Defense started off the scoring with Peter Cecil sacking the QB- stripping the ball away and carried into the end zone for a Cougars first Touchdown. North Creek struggled all night on offense and was forced to punt several times. The defense was challenged late in the 3rd quarter when Bothell fumbled a punt return inside our own 10 yard line. The defense didn’t give up much ground and rejected North Creek a great opportunity to get back into the game. The Defensive backs defended several passes last night and made some great open field tackles; lead by Huber Thang, Cody Petrin, Clint Thomas and Lincoln Matson. The Linebackers Bryce Kooy and Peter Cecil had a great night leading the team in tackles.

Bryce Kooy rushed for over 100 yards and worked for hard for every inch to keep the offense moving. The Freshman team is now 3-0!

Outstanding defensive efforts gave way to some amazing rallies. Avarye Monsef and Nora Hayd had 4 aces each on the night.

Si (Monday) and North Creek (Wednesday).
What a beautiful afternoon at Inglewood Golf Course. Evan Deforest started off the match with a birdie on the first hole! And the birdies weren't done singing on the course as Parker Haney dropped in another one on the 7th hole. Anthony Sendejas had a great round with 6 pars and 3 bogeys and finished the match with the best round of the day!
We were hoping the match would be close. Cody Winkelman, BHS #2 yesterday, looked down his putt on the last hole and let it fly from 30+ feet.........dink. Hit the flag stick and it dropped in for a par. Things looked promising. Parker Haney later came in with a 44 and his best score of the year. At that point, we had 4 solid scores and needed one more to be close. In comes freshman sensation, Connor Kim, who played the last hole with confidence, which was a good sign. If he comes in with a sub 50 round, we have a chance..... it's a 49! Bothell wins its first match of the year 229-231 vs Inglemoor. Cole Herrick also shoots his best round of the year contributing to the best score by the BHS golf team this year. Nice work boys! And great timing for the win!
Bothell won two games last night against Eastlake by forfeit. Eastlake borrowed three players from us and we played two fun games. Everyone played and enjoyed the competition. Olivia Lassiter was 5 for 6 and Akemi Ozoa was 4 for 5.
V: We faced a very good Skyline team in front of a large, emotional crowd. We did not come away with a victory but we battled the entire night until the final whistle. The game was 1-0 at halftime and Skyline dominated the play creating 10 corner kicks. Walking out down 1-0 felt like a relief and we responded well to the onslaught. The 2nd half saw us defend better and limit Skyline's dangerous attempts. We were also able to create more movement forward in the 2nd half. The game ended 3-0 in favor of Skyline, but the last goal came in the last 20 seconds.
Ava Hudson, Gabi Redi, Taryn Bennett, Maddie Barker, and Delaney Smith had an incredible night as a defensive unit. They were able to manage Skyline's attack all night. Bella Gutierrez had another great night in goal making several huge saves. Lilla Tillo and Ellie Butner did a great job limiting Skyline's best player and arguably one of the better players in the league. Ava Hudson won player of the match with her defensive effort all night.
A lot needs to be said about the girls for playing in an emotional game as Skyline is facing some hard times as a school right now. Both teams played with a lot of heart and all need to be recognized for the effort put out tonight.
JV: JV Girls Soccer: Playing their best match of the season, the Cougs went into the 2nd half in a 0-0 tie. The Spartans got a goal on a breakaway and another to seal the win @ 2-0. Bothell was outstanding as the defensive tandem of Avarey Wilson and Kailey Gumpke shut down the midfield. Salyna Woods was a ninja in goal. Alysa Coyne narrowly missed a game changer goal on an early 2nd half break away.
Boys tennis lost to a very tough Newport team yesterday. Lots of good tennis. Amil George playing #2 singles lost a great match 4-6, 6-3, 1-10. Amil played excellent tennis.
Johnny Schuller continued his dominant tennis winning 7-6, 6-4
The JV Football Cougars went to the neighbors house to play a football game.
The first half was a tough battle, the score showed 6-6 at half time. Our defense tightened up with some adjustments at halftime and the kids executed well!
Charlson Muyonga played hard and had a crucial sack. Mercer Nafe was on fire with tackles. The Purple team tried to attack through the air, only to be met with several intercepted passes. Brady Branscome picked off one, Cameron Frane had another.
On offense we were lead by our offensive line. Ty Olcese, Jamie Manrique, Adam Smith, Jack Kistler, Auden James, Parker James, Anya McIntyre, Noah Ochoa, Sawyer Whitson, Isaac Araki, Mathew Courier -- well done! They moved the line of scrimmage and opened holes all game long. North Creek couldn't stop our run game. Luke Olsen was a punishing ball carrier, scoring a touchdown along the way. Edwin Zamora scored a touchdown as well, the first in his life I believe! Dylan Winkleman scored as well, and ran for tough yardage throughout the game.
We threw the ball a little bit too. Miles Anderson connected with Jimmy Tucker on a couple of deep balls for big first downs. Late in the game, faced with a 4th down to run out the clock, Isaac Tran threw one up to Cameron Frane who made a great one handed catch in the end zone to seal the victory. Charlie Shulkin kicked well all night, put the ball threw the uprights for the final PAT. The Blue Train prevails 28-14!
The Boys Golf team took a decent Issaquah team yesterday at Mill Creek Country Club falling short 221 to 254. Parker Haney lead the team with a 45 and scored some Kingco points for the first time in his career.
A few memorable shots: Cole Herrick (20 feet) and Jeremiah Wadsworth (10 feet) holed out their putts on the 8th hole which was exciting to watch. Stryder Morrison and Sam Winkelman hit great approach shots on the last hole. Sam's par putt came to rest on the edge of the cup whereas Stryder drained his putt for a par and a great finish.
Bothell takes on Inglemoor today at Inglewood Country Club. This will be our closest match of the year and hopefully we come out on top!
