OCTOBER 12 RECAP
Bothell blue continued their winning ways in dominant fashion over Inglemoor by a score of 16 - 1. The Cougars scored 16 runs on 19 hits in 4 innings of at bats. The batting was lead by the 2 for 2 for Evie Cornwell, 3 - 3 Akemi Ozoa, and 3-3 Ava Gasca.
Behind what seems to be the normal exceptional pitching, Olivia Lassiter and Bella Branscomb pitched 5 innings without issuing a walk.
The team plays Thursday evening 5pm at Woodinville high school for a share of the regular season championship.
It was a great battle between two Northshore giants.
Game started off with Inglemoor pressing us into our own half without creating any real goal scoring chances. The players did fantastic of absorbing the pressure and playing out and around it. Last 20 minutes of the first half was dominated by us, creating multiple chances going forward. Half ends tied 0-0.
More control from BOSO in the second half, however Inglemoor managed to slip in a ball behind our defense and were able to finish their chance. It was a cold and rainy night and the game was a scrap fest from the jump. It made sense that the only goal of the game was an awkward one. The ladies battled until the final whistle, but were unable to get a goal and equalize.
Blue Train still rollin'
VARSITY: Varsity Volleyball Team battled some sickness and inconsistencies, but still manage to pull off a 3-1 victory over Newport last night.

A deflection finally gave Eastlake their first goal with just 20 minutes left in the second half.
BOSO played hard just got outscored.
Congrats to Bothell White for defeating Redmond 9 to 8 on Thursday at IHS!
It was a nail biter from the very beginning. Bothell White was down 5-2 after the first inning and fought hard in the third inning to regain the lead. Our top of the batting order consecutively hit back-to-back allowing us to score 5 runs.
By the seventh inning, Redmond had the bases loaded with no outs. Our pitcher, Evie Cornwell, managed to hold them off with solid pitching and was backed by a strong infield and outfield to end the game.
Every player successfully hit throughout the game. Highlights were a double by Senior Julia Garcia and Junior Zoe Brown, with multiple singles between Junior Ava Huff, our exchange students (whom are new to the sport this year!) Anna Grueter & Lana Rajkovic, Sophomore Sydney Kuhn, and last but certainly not least, our Freshman players, Megan Luke & Natalie Garcia.
Overall, it was an amazing game and a great victory for Bothell White! Go Cougs!
VARSITY: The Team was up to the task last night of taking on long-time rival Issaquah, earning a 3-0 sweep for the second match in a row.
Jenna Legault had a huge night earning 5 aces, 15 kills, and 2 blocks. Haedyn Bambolo was close behind again with another 13 kills and 11 digs. BB Anitei and Eva Winter were also huge at the net, ending with 8 kills a piece. BB also added 2 blocks on the night. Leading with blocks on the night was Amalie Onener with 4, another great performance. Josie Milner had a huge night in the back row! 100% serving on 11 attempts, highest passing rating on the night and led in digs with 12. Jordan Hayden and Maleah Andrews were solid again, mixing up their sets all night. Kili Hoke was steady coming off the bench, earning 2 aces and 2 kills. 2 home matches next week. Come check out this team, it’s getting exciting!
C Team: Unfortunately for C volleyball squad, Issaquah out dug us last night and took the win due to beating ourselves in our own game. That didn't stop individual players breaking through some of their own goals and numbers though!
100% serving for the night were Saanvi Subramanian, Prisha Kuberan and Anna Lunde (with 3 aces). Great hitting efficiency from Caroline Giesbrecht (4 kills), Ash Nakata (4 kills), Sydney Dwinell and Cam O'Neal with 3 kills each. Great passing from Caroline Giesbrecht (2.5), Jazmin Cole (2) and Prisha Kuberan (3). Digging it up was Cam O'Neal (9 digs), Anna Lunde (8 digs) and Ash Nakata (7 digs).
No doubt that this Bothell C volleyball team will bounce back. We will get a whole lot of time for that with 2 matches and a weekend tournament next week

OCT 6 SCORES:
Freshman Football: The Freshman Team traveled to MT Si to take on the undefeated Wildcats last night. This was an exciting game from start to finish. Both teams played hard and it was a very physical game. Mt Si started off the game with a quick score. Bothell responded with the ground game and patiently marched the ball down the field with a Jayden Donald TD. Mt Si responded with another quick TD on a long pass. Bothell got the ball back and scored again on a “Jailbreak” receiver screen by Eliandry Olmo Ozuna. After that the teams exchanged punts and then the young Cougars were able to get the ground game going again. Wyatt Mickelberry finished the drive with a run play up the middle to put Bothell up 21-14 at the half. Wyatt has only played football for 13 days. The second half became even more physical with both defenses playing well. After the Cougars Defense came up big with a 4th and inches stop- Bothell was able to score again after Coach Messner dug into his bag of tricks on a deep pass from Blake Skinner to Eliandry Olmo Ozuna a few plays later. Mt Si battled back and drove down the field to Bothell’s 5 yard line. Soren Block put an end to that drive with a clutch Interception in the back of the end zone. Final Score Bothell 28 Mt Si 14.
The coaches and Parents were very proud of our young Cougars last night. Even Linda the Bus driver was excited for us after the big win! The Offensive Line came up big battling all night up front; Caden Price, Joshua Kinross, Jayden King, Nolan Le Doux, Braden Bokath, Henry Daley and Jeremey Davis. Running back Jayden Donald rushed well over 100 yards last night and caught 1 pass. Defensively the Cougars played well as a team after a shaky first quarter. Trace Jones was flying all over the field leading the team in tackles. Cole Brooke, Westin Narancic, Kingston Fleming, Soren Block and Elinadry all played well in the secondary defending Mt Si’s passing attack. Arvin Aujla was perfect on all Field Goal (PAT) attempts.
The Freshman team is now 4-1 and is improving every day.
The boys tennis team lost a heart breaker to Inglemoor 3-4 yesterday. The boys played one of their best matches of the year. The effort was outstanding.
In Singles action we won 3 of 4 matches.
Amil George continued his dominant play at #1 singles with a 6-0, 6-1 victory improving to 5-1 in league play
Sai Praneth won 6-4, 6-2 at #2 singles
Colby Weller won his first singles match of the year at # 3 singles 6-2, 6-3

In doubles action Soren Rowles and Spencer Hogge played a great match but came up short 6-4, 4-6, 3-6
This afternoon's match up between the two Bothell teams was all about honoring the seniors. Senior night is an important tradition for the girls, and the seniors were emotional from the beginning as many of them have played together since 4th grade. Seeing an end to 9 years as teammates was a lot to process, even with a full week of games left in this season, plus the hope of the playoffs and the chance at a place in the state tournament.
There was not a dry eye among the seniors (and many of the underclassmen as well) as the following players were honored in a post-game ceremony put together by parent volunteers and their teammates:
This afternoon it was about teamwork and togetherness. A few of the seniors commented that they hope they have helped lay the groundwork for the underclassmen to see success in the coming years. Based on the reactions of both benches, the role this group of seniors have played in building this program over the last three seasons is evident.
The senior girls are ready to continue leading their team to the state tournament.
VARSITY: The players came out with great energy and composure to start the game. Managed to snag a nice goal by Kiara Headlee with the assist going to Rachel Traxler via free kick. We managed to control the game really well and limited their opportunities to score with the help of big saves from Kaitlin Baldwin - McCurdy.
Second half was similar to the first with us keeping possession very well throughout the game, as well as keeping the intensity going forward. Mt Si managed to snag a goal halfway through the second half to send the game into overtime.
As we were pushing forward and trying to find the late winner, we got caught out and they managed to sneak a ball past our defense for the second goal.
Extremely proud of how well Bothell played together and individually. We keep our heads high and look forward to the next challenge on Thursday vs Eastlake!
JV: Mount Si was the perfect competition for girls JV soccer. The high pace and intensity continued throughout all of the game as the score 0-0 stayed consistent through the first half.
Cougars stayed aggressive through the second half, looking for opportunities to move the ball down the field. Zobe Murray made a perfect free-kick at goal bumping the score to 1-0. The team is lucky to have Lilly Adkinson back in goal, she protected our side of the field in and out of the box throughout the night.
Varsity: Volleyball Team got back on track last night with a 3-0 sweep of Skyline.
Our big hitters, Haedyn Bambolo & Jenna Legault, continue to dominate at the net, racking up a total of 26 kills. Racking up another 4 kills a piece were Amalie Onener, BB Anitei & Eva Winter. Though our passing was a little off last night, Jenna Legault was steady and Leanna Sayavong had a great performance coming off the bench.
Amalie Onener is starting to come alive at the net, adding 3 more blocks to her total. Great serving kept Skyline off balance. The team had a total of 12 aces, 5 by Jenna Legault and 2 a piece from Jordan Hayden and Maleah Andrews.
JV: Skyline tried to spoil the JV vballers winning streak but were unsuccessful! After dropping the first set to the Spartans--your Cougars prevailed - winning the match 2-1.
The team's consistency behind the serving line created opportunities to score points. Kea Skinner, Mary Purefoy, Ocea Rietz and Victoria Paslavsky were PERFECT ( 100%) behind the line while Stella Grekof, Izzy Johnson and Elise Yuhan served a slough of aces!
Alana Baron(4), Skinner(3), Grekof(4) and Kendall Monsef(7) were Killin it!!! - literally!l
BLOCKTOBER has arrived and our added focus on blocking in practice turned into great blocks from Jenna Minneman (2) Grekof ( 2) and Skinner (1) ****team high for the season*****
Annissa Macdonald, Rachel Zehm and Jordan Rankins came off the bench to help contribute to the W.
C team: We took a loss on the road against Skyline, and it was a tough one to swallow. Unfortunately, after a bus ride and lack of resources during warmups, the lady Cougs fought a good fight yet fell short in this match. However, they did not let up and snagged a win the last set against this scrappy Skyline team.
In the 100% serving club for the night were Kait Stam, Jazmine Cole, and Leah Rankins. Standout servers for the match was Ashley Nakata, jump serving at 100% with 4 aces and Sidney Dwinell serving 91.7% and 4 aces of her own. Our kill contributions go to Leah Rankins (4 kills and 1 block) and Emma Conklin (3 kills). Libero Caroline Giesbrecht had some steady passing (1.5) and 5 digs. Sidney Dwinell earned 7 digs and Prisha Kuberan contributed 6 of her own. Setter Anna Lunde per usual works hard to control or improve the second contact and recorded 8 assists for the night.

Oliver Kemper (10), determined as always, hit some beautiful approach shots to greens, particularly on the difficult 14th hole where he stuck it 10 feet from the pin from 160 yards out and sunk the birdie putt!

The Boys Varsity Tennis team played a very good match on Monday. Though we came up a little short, the boys played a smart and hard-fought match.
In singles action, Amil George continued to play well with a 6-3, 6-2 victory. Henry Crumbaugh played a very savvy and smart match. He used all of his skills and though he lost 2-6, 6-4, 2-6 he learned a ton.

The match of the day had to be our 6th double exhibition team. Jong Lee and Brennen O'donnell. Down 1-7 in the match, they rallied for a 9-7 victory. It truly left the team stunned. Our boys just took one point at a time and were truly focused on the process over the outcome. Final team score, Redmond 5 Bothell 2
Bothell Blue started the week off with a come from behind win at Lake Washington winning 11-6. Trailing 5-2 going into the 5th Bothell answered with 4 runs, the Cougars would put the game away for the night scoring 5 more in the top of the 7th.

On a surprisingly nice afternoon, the Boys Golf team took on a tough Redmond squad. Here's a few highlights.
Spencer Makanui had a tough lie on the third hole in knee high grass and made an unbelievable shot onto the green.
While putting on the 3rd green, Lyle Racho was standing over his putt and had to wait until a deer played through before hitting his put. Yes, a deer walked through his line.
Walker Lamb paced the Cougars with a 1 over par 37 and had the second-best round of the day!
Connor Kim, Cole Herrick, Spencer Dunn, and Jack DeForest had the top 5 scores for Bothell yesterday with Will Robson missing the top 5 by one stroke.
All in all, it was a difficult course and the Cougs went down 196-256. After posting our best round of the year on Wednesday, amazing how things can change in a day.
Bothell Blue returned to their winning ways with a 14-3 win over Eastlake. The runs were scored on 12 hits led by the 3 for 3 batting of Baylee Mittendorf and the 2 for 2 with a sacrifice fly of Hannah Thorsheim.

Great defense by all, as we battled some tough hitters. Eva Winter, Haedyn Bambolo, Jenna Legault, Jordan Hayden, Josie Milner & Maleah Andrews each ended with double digit digs.
Will enjoy a good weekend off, then back at it next week versus Skyline on Tuesday.
JV: girls lost the first set but took care of business and won the last 2! Nothing like a big W on the (Long)road!
Statistically we should not have won the match. Negative hitting efficiency and poor serve receive statistics could not hold us down due to the relentless positive energy these girls brought to the court last night. Season high serving 96.8% kept us in the match! 100% crew includes Elise Yuhan, Jenna Minneman, Kea Skinner, Mary Purefoy and Sydney Wasteney. Yuhan rallied with 6 aces as well.
Stella Grekof, Elise Yuhan and Kea Skinner were the only hitters that earned kills in the match. Alana Baron and Rachel Zehm started our BLocktober run early by each blocking some Mt Si hitters and defensive specialist Izzy Johnson racked up 15 digs.
C Team: Volleyball team redeemed themselves last night on the road against Mt. Si. The cougars were on fire! Proud to say everyone had great plays to contribute to last night's 2-1 win.
Behind the end line the team had their best serving night, serving with an 89.5% efficiency. Over half the team served 100% the night which includes : Anna Lunde (3 aces), Kait Stam, Jazmine Cole, Saanvi Subramanian (2 aces), Ash Nakata, Saylah Rivera, Emma Conklin, and Camdyn O'Neal (1 ace).
We produced some great attacks and were aggressive at the net. Collecting kills for the night were, Anna Lunde (3), Caroline Giesbrecht (4), Leah Rankins (4), Prisha Kuberan (3), Zoey Hauanio (2), and Cam O'Neal (4) and Emma Conklin with her usual 1 timely block for the night!
Steady passing from Anna Lunde (2.33), Ash Nakata (2.0) and Camdyn O'Neal (2.33). The girls played awesome defense in good old Bothell fashion with long rallies and amazing pursuit. Leading the team in digs was Cam O'Neal (9), Prisha Kuberan (8), Caroline Giesbrecht (7) and Anna Lunde (7) and Leah Rankins (6).
GOLF: Boys played an exciting game against Issaquah High School yesterday at our home course, The Golf Club at Redmond Ridge. While we came in second with a 211 to Issaquah's 188, it was our best round yet.
Our scores just keep going down with all the hard work the boys are putting in! Some highlights were Walker Lamb's (10) even par 35 and Oliver Kemper's (10) 40. Camden Eggers (11) hit a personal best 42! A great score! Connor Kim (11) and Jack DeForest contributed to our top five scores with a 45 and 49 respectively. Way to go, Cougs!
SLOWPITCH: vs Inglemoor Bothell White team
Bothell White brought the bats Tuesday, gaining an 8-5 win over Inglemoor. Zoe Brown started the first 3-run rally with a leadoff triple. Natalie Garcia batted her in with a single to the right-side. Julia Garcia came up with another single, getting both sisters on the bases. Then Bailey Mulhern drove them in with a 2-out double!
It was a team effort, as the Lady Cougs did it again the next inning. Katie Prindle started it off, Megan Luke singled to get on base, Anna Grueter put them in scoring position, then Evie Cornwell drove them in with a 2-run triple! Zoe Brown had a sac fly, scoring Evie, for another 3-run inning.
Solid pitching with Bailey Mulhern and Evie Cornwell backed by strong defense held Inglemoor to 5 runs, finding a way out of three nail biting, bases loaded situations.
Bothell Blue lost a close game (6-5), their first loss of the season, after Woodinville came back to score 2 runs in the top of the 7th inning after trailing 5-1.
Bothell’s offense was lead by Amber Galloway, Ava Gasca and Grace Tanferani who were all 2 for 3 on the night. With 3 more game this week, including a non-league double header vs. Chief Sealth on Wednesday, Bothell Blue will fine tune their defense and get back to their winning ways.
Best game of the season for BOSO hands down. We did not get the result we wanted, but from the perspective of someone who loves the game it was a great one to watch.
We came out playing fantastic possession based footy, something the team has been working towards all year. Despite that they were able to counter and find a goal early on. The players fought back and created numerous chances, as well as a penalty kick save from none other than Kaitlin Baldwin-McCurdy (which is her 3rd pk save this SEASON 👀). We end the half dominating possession and with our heads high.
The girls came out with fire and a gameplan for the second half. Despite us playing brilliant football and Kaitlin Baldwin-McCurdy making numerous clutch saves, we were unable to find the equalizing goal and went down 1-0 to finish the game.
It was a great night yesterday for our Varsity Volleyball Team. Having the support of many BHS students helped them take down Woodinville 3-1.
It was a rough serving night for our team, but Haedyn Bambolo & Maleah Andrews were able to keep pressure on the Falcons, each finishing with 4 aces a piece. Maleah was also 100% on the night! Our 1-2 punch of Jenna Legault & Haedyn Bambolo dropped heavy bombs on Woodinville, finishing with 18 & 12 kills respectively. BB Anitei was thrilled to be back on the court as she totaled 7 kills and 2 blocks. Our setters, Maleah Andrews & Jordan Hayden, worked hard last night to distribute the ball to their hitters, each finishing with 20 assists.
We get 1 day of practice, then a match with Mount Si on Thursday.
Bothell JV beat North Creek 19-13 in what I believe is the first JV OT victory in my 12 years coaching (we don’t typically play OT).
Bothell’s defense stopped NC on 4th and 5 on their turn opening OT drive on offense. Maliki Walker pounded a perfectly blocked sweep in from the 10 yard line on first down of our possession in OT for the win.
Bothell’s defense was solid all night with several 4th downs stops. Danny Sirmon paced the offense with two nice touchdown passes to Tyson Hoke who was able to overcome being double covered most of the night.
As always, another great night to be a Bothell Cougar!
GOLF: Rain out
Saturday marked the first day in a long time where Bothell Cross Country saw true competition. Facing 66 other teams of all different division--the Lady Cougars came out showing that they are a team not to take lightly. After this weekend it is clear that Kingco Cross Country is one of the more competitive leagues in the entire state. With 4 of the top 5 places from the Bellevue invite all being out of Kingco. The Lady Cougars will have to keep their positive momentum over the next few weeks to keep their state bound opportunities alive. Many of the Bothell Harriers showed their motivations by running faster than they ever have over 5 kilometers. With a lot of Bothell Cougars who ran 2-3 minutes faster than they have ever run. Here are some of the major stand outs.
Freshman - Rachel Macmahon placed 14th out of 244 runners out of all the freshman and sophomores with a time of 23:57 making her a new top prospective for the already competitive women’s varsity team.
Senior Alex Vuyisich ran to an 11th place finish with a PR of 17:24 in his varsity race. Other notable senior finishes include Taylor Zundel looking like her true dominating self with a time of 21:57 for 5k.
Sophomore Anders Nieminen stepped up for the first time running in the varsity race running a time of 19:09 making that a personal best. Also, Freshman Matthew McAllister and Freshman Rayhan Sathiq also stepped up running personal bests in their first varsity races
After a close first half the Bothell Cougars made critical interceptions and came away with another win.
Just before the half Sam Stewart made an interception on the 2 yard line to stop a NC score.
Score was stuck at 28 all at the end of the third quarter but Bothell turned up the heat.
Scores made by Cody Petrin, Logan Lacio and Amani Hopoi got us to the winning score: 49 35.
Varsity: Lynnwood vs North Creek.
Jack DeForest led the team with 4 fans in attendance. Playing under the pressure was not an issue as Jack posted his best round of the year! Spencer Dunn dissected the fairway with a great drive on the first hole and Will Robson got a par on one of the more difficult par 4's.
Heavy hitters, Sam Winkelman and Camden Eggers went against the norm and decided to hit drivers on a narrow and short par 4, successfully driving close to 300 yards and landing right next to the green!
Overall, the team enjoyed the comradery of the competition and both squads shared some laughs together after the round, which was the biggest highlight of the day.
Sir Oliver Kemper led the Cougars with a 38, which placed him tied for second on the day. Oh, and we had more strokes than they did.
Next up is Juanita on Monday at Redmond Ridge.
JV Golf had a wonderful day at Crossroads Par 3 course.
We fielded 7 players against our host Lake Washington and visiting Mt. Si. How'd we do, you may ask. Well, we got the highest score, but we had a great time in the sun.
On a wager against their coach, Ryan McGrew and Wes Batholomew posted respectable scores of 35 and 36, causing their overconfident coach to perform some much needed push-ups. Drew Felton scored a 41 and Kaden Adams came in with the next lowest score at 48. 9th graders Gage Wedin and Brandon Matthews rolled in with 49s, while BHS 9th grader Nathan Winsky, playing for us from Innovation Lab, scored a 53. A fun day in the sun that ended with pizza and pop and plenty of camaraderie between the teams.
SLOWPITCH: Bothell White.
Great energy, strong bats, and solid defense led Bothell White to a 15-11 victory over Juanita.
The tone for the game was set in the first inning when defense shut down Juanita’s top hitters then followed up with the bats, scoring 4 runs to take the lead. Megan Luke and Ava Hauff kicked it off with a single and a walk. Evie Cornwell brought them in with a 2 RBI triple.
The Cougars’ energy was humming every inning, defense halting Juanita 3 out of 6 innings with two double plays. They kept it going at the plate with 11 hits and 17 walks. Everyone found a way to get on base. Evie Cornwell went 3/3 with 2 RBIs, Zoe Brown 1/1 with 1 RBI and 2 walks, Julia Garcia 2/3, and Lana Rajkovik 2/3 with 2 RBIs.
The Cougs are at it again on Monday!
VARSITY: Tough loss for BOSO against a scrappy Newport team who came out the gate firing. First half ends with us down 2, but with Bothell starting to find possession of the ball. The girls came out strong in the second half, with an early chance by freshman Dalanie Varden. We managed to control the second half very well, but were unable to find the back of the net despite our best efforts.
JV: Zobe Murray had free kick goal from 25 yards out! Finished the first half up 1-0. The girls came out flying in the second half with 2 goals from Brynn Hoyt, and a header goal from Kaitlyn Miller!
Newport was able to scrape a goal back, but we were not worried for a second and we finish out the game with a 4-1 victory!

The Boys Varsity tennis team lost 0-7 to Northcreek on Thursday. Northcreek is very good and very deep. Our boys gave great effort but were outmatched.
Top performances of the day were Amil George who lost 4-6 in the second set to the top player in our division and Henry Crumbaugh who after losing the first set 1-6, fought his way to a tie breaker in the second set. The boys will learn from this experience and will improve.
VARSITY: Traveled to Redmond last night and came away with a 3-1 win, improving their record to 12-1. Battling some sickness and injuries, the team fought hard to regain the same chemistry and energy that has helped them so far this season.
Great serving kept the pressure on Redmond. Kili Hoke rattled off 5 aces on the night. Haedyn Bambolo added 3 more.
Redmond showed some great defense against our hitters, but they were still able to rack up a number of kills and hit at a high efficiency. Haedyn Bambolo (17 kills), Jenna Legault (11 kills), Eva Winter (7 kills) and Amalie Onener (7 kills) all did a great job. Amalie was also dominating at the net, adding 5 blocks. Jenna was close behind with 3.
We will enjoy the weekend off and get ready to face Woodinville on Tuesday at Woodinville.
JV: Vball takes care of business at Redmond. Chalk another W up for your JV Vballers!!!
Challenged by a tough serving Redmond JV, our Cougars responded in decisive fashion winning the match 3-0. We had some great serving runs from Kea Skinner ( 100% with 6 aces) Izzy Johnson ( 100% with 4 aces) Jordan Rankins 100% as well. Mary Purefoy 5 aces and Stella Grekof had 2.

Elise Yuhand and Jordan Rankins had 3 kills each, Alan Baron and Rachel Zehm each had 2. Although our middle hitters (Ocea Rietz/Alana Baron/Jenna M and Victoria Paslavsky) did not get the opportunity to attack that often last night -- their footwork patterns and transition work has improved!!!
C Team: Fun match for the C team volleyball squad last night. On the road, they had the luxury of playing 5 sets, against the Redmond Mustangs since Redmond gave the chance to both of their C teams to play. Happy to announce that the lady Cougs came out on top in a 4-1 victory!

We serve/received decently last night with a team avg of 1.6. However, we had solid serve/receive passing from Anna Lunde (2.5), Caroline Giesbrecht (2.25), and Prisha Kuberan (2.2).
Great defensive digs by Anna Lunde (9), Ash Nakata (8), Sydney Dwinell (7), Zoey Hauanio (5) and Emma Conklin per usual snagged a block for the night and Caroline Giesbrecht had amazing pursuit on some great defensive digs.
Cross Country at Beaver Lake
The Bothell girls fought hard through trail and turmoil against the top schools in the league.
Lauren Hoyt finished 5th at her opening race of the season with a solid performance. Ainsley Herron sprinted the start and the finish to land her 7th place. The next wave of blue was our core pack of girls. For 3.1 miles Emma, Gabby, Taylor, and Macey ran as a team and finished within seconds of each other!
On the boys side, it was a bit of a challenge to find our blue jerseys due to the vastness of the field. But after a fast start, mighty Bothell came with mighty runners. Alex Vuyisich finished 9th in his race. Meanwhile, Elliot Van Andel began his running career in his first race of the season! Thankfully all other members on the boys team came back unscathed! The course took out a good number on the other teams.
Bothell lost a close match with Inglemoor on Wednesday. The Match score was 3-4.
We continue to learn and grow as a team. One of the best things about this team is that they play and practice for each other. They are very fun to coach. And here are your scores:
Amil George won 6-0,6-3 at #1 singles
Sai Praneth won at #2 singles 6-0,6-0
Henry Crumbaugh won at #4 singles 6-2,6-2
In doubles action, the most exciting match was Spencer Hogge and Soren Rowles at #3 doubles. They had a marathon match. Lots of great points by both teams. The final score was, 6-7, 7-5, 5-7
We travel to North Creek on Thursday to take on the division-leading Jags. The Best Is Ahead
Varsity: The players came out and played with a lot of heart and grit. We went up against a tough opponent in Issaquah and were unable to get the victory away from home. The girls heads are high and ready to take on our next opponent Newport on Thursday. Work starts tomorrow! Go BOSO
JV: Our strong defensive line with Zobe Murray, Brend Zamorano Salmoran, Jayda Peach and Lyla Wood held the Eagles off all of the second half allowing only one shot in goal. Eloise Poppenhagen and Lillian Adkinson's endurance to protect the net prevented multiple shots on goal. Cougars are using their first loss of the season to build from and prepare for Thursday's game.
Strong hitting and solid defense led Bothell Blue to a 25-5 win over Juanita.
The offense started strong in the 1st inning with two RBI doubles by Grace Tanferandi and Akemi Ozoa. Landon Zaha set the defensive tone getting the final out in the bottom of the 1st by snagging a hard fly to right field.
The bats were on fire with a total of 18 hits. Ryann Osborne was 2/2 with a walk. Ellie Prindle was 2/2 with a walk. Amber Galloway was 3/3 with a walk.

Some great standout saves by Saanvi Subramanian, Anna Lunde, Caroline Giesbrecht and Jazmine Cole.
Their fight last night was a true testimony to those long days of school and hard work in practice when we say, "We're not tired, we're tough".
Hope to continue our domination on Thurs at Redmond HS.
Boys Golf hosted their first home match of the season to a well-seasoned Skyline team. While we lost this match 190 (Skyline) to 227 (BHS), we had some wonderful moments.
Walker Lamb (10) was the medalist with a 3 under par 33. The best Skyline score was an even par 36.
Lyle Racho an errant shot on the par three second hole with a finessed flop shot over a bunker to a tight pin that impressed the Skyline coach.
Spencer Makanui chipped a one in a million shot out of a hazard on the par four 5th hole, and Oliver Kemper and Connor Kim both had beautiful tee shots to within 30 feet of the pin on the par three 7th hole playing directly into the sun.
All in all, a fair round for our team against a tough bunch of Spartans.

A Tale of Two Races - A really short story
By Bothell XC
The girls won.
The boys went the wrong way.
Girls XC: The Lady Cougars ran a very conservative first 5k of the year to a solid victory over Woodinville and Mt. Si. With Junior Ainsley Herron leading the field to a victory. Other notable finishes on the girl's side were Macey Thomas (Fr), Taylor Zundal (Sr), and Paulina King (So).
After Woodinville's crushing defeat on the girls' side the Woodinville’s boys team seemed disheveled. In turn, they led the entire field the wrong way on their 3 looped course for a “Not quite a 5k” 5k in the hopes of trying to get at least one victory. However, Bothell’s Alex Vuyisch (Sr) put the kibosh on that and went on as the “unofficial” champion with a time of 16:47 over slightly less the 3.1 miles. Other notable finishes on the guy side were Dalton Rietzer (Jr) and Kaden Allen (Sr).
Varsity Volleyball Team capped off their preseason with an amazing 3-2 win at Kentwood last night. It was back and forth all night, but they pushed ahead in the 5th set and never looked back. Get ready for some amazing stats… Amalie Onener: 3 timely kills & 2 blocks. BB Anitei: 11 kills & 1 block, Eva Winter: 2 aces, 8 kills, 14 digs & the highest passing percentage on the team. Haedyn Bambolo: 17 kills, 1 block, 14 digs & great passing! Jenna Legault: 7aces, 20 kills & 22 digs. Jordan Hayden: 2 aces, 28 assists & 11 digs. Josie Milner: 9 digs & great passes all night in her 1st turn at libero. Kili Hoke: 3 aces, 2 kills & 5 digs. Maleah Andrews: 1 ace, 29 assists & 14 digs. 1st regular season match @ North Creek Tuesday!
JV VBALL battled with Kentwood last night winning the match in the 3rd set 15-10.
Kentwood’s scrappy play put our girls to the test but we responded with some great rallies and a great night for serve receive. Kea Skinner, Izzy Johnson, Kendall Monsef, Stella Grekof and Sydney Wasteney all passed above our team average allowing our hitters to do work!!
Yuhan, Monsef and Stella Grekof led the offensive charge putting together 15 kills
Kea Skinner, Izzy johnson and Kendall Monsef served 100% for the night. Kendall and Elise Yuhan added 4 aces each. Izzy Johnson absolutely OWNED the court defensively, keeping the ball alive with 27 digs!!

Boys Golf enjoyed a beautiful day at Newcastle on Wednesday. It was an early tee time and we were rushed to the first tee box with no time for warm up, but they gave it their best on a tough course. In the end, we lost the match, but the team garnered kudos from the opposing coach for their flexibility in jumping into the match, their great pace of play, and their sportsmanship. Well done, Boys Golf!
VARSITY: The Varsity Volleyball Team learned the meaning of grit in a gusty 3-set sweep over visiting Holy Names last night. Tough serves caused our passing game to be off last night, but smart hits around a very good defense and great serves gave us the edge we needed.

Maleah Andrews and Jordan Hayden worked hard to distribute the ball to all their hitters. Maleah ended with 17 assists and Jordan with 14.
