Recap from May 3 - 4
Games on Friday resulted in girls going to Softball district tournament May 10. Face Redmond at 5 pm at Phil Johnson Fields (Everett).
Girls tennis had a great Kingco Tournament on Saturday at Skyline High School. The weather was perfect and the tennis was exciting.
Seniors Brooklyn Smith and Evie Smith played a team from Inglemoor. This was the same team that beat them 2 weeks ago. Brooklyn and Evie played so much better but came up a little short. They were so positive and full of energy as they left the courts and their tennis career at Bothell High School. It has been an honor to coach two of Bothell’s finest. They will deeply missed.
In singles action, JR Megan Wong had the longest match of the day. She played a girl from Northcreek. The first ball was hit at 10:00 and the last ball was hit at 12:35. Megan won 6-1, 2-6, 6-3. Both girls played all they had. Megan was rewarded with a 45 minute break and then had to face the # 2 seed from Eastlake. Megan played very well but the Eastlake girl is very tough.
It was a great day and I am very proud of our whole team.

The boys entered the last game of the season facing North Creek looking to be the best team in Northshore. Before the game got started we got to honor our seniors for their contributions to the program: Taedyn Anderson, Spencer Haney, Zachary Jokisch, Tobias Olson, and Ryan Reynolds. All contributed in their own unique way and got us to where we are now, a Bothell soccer family.
The game started off quick, and North Creek opened the scoring early off a corner kick to go up 1-0. We struggled to keep the ball in the first half, and defended the majority of the time.
The second half was a completely different story. We were able to create chances and defended well. Spencer Haney had a phenomenal game in goal making many saves. Zachary Jokisch and Noe Guzman had a great game at the center back positions shutting down a tough North Creek attack.Cody Winkleman battled hard all night in the middle of the field. Many others had great games, unfortunately we couldn't find a goal to tie the game up. The game ended 1-0, but we played until the final whistle.
The boys had a tremendous season and have set the stage for a great year next year as we look to return the majority of the program and will add new players. I'm so proud of the group and what they accomplished as a family.

Event recaps from Fri/Sat:
The Cougar baseball team honored its senior players on Friday night with a thrilling 3-2, 9 inning walk off victory over Inglemoor.
The largest and loudest crowd of the season saw the Cougs fall behind 2-0 in the first inning. The lead was cut to 2-1 on an RBI walk by Caden Baker in the third inning. Baker had three hits on the night.
The game remained that score until Josh Davis delivered the game tying RBI double with two outs and two strikes in the bottom of the 7th.
In the 8th inning Bothell and Inglemoor traded game saving, diving catches to end both halves of the inning. Cameron Ley sprawled out and avoided the near collision to make the over the shoulder catch to end the Inglemoor rally in the top of the inning.
Finally, in the bottom of the 9th inning Austin Cartwright led off with a clutch single. Dylan Gerad's sacrifice bunt moved him to 2nd. And....Erik Bainter delivered the game winning, walk off RBI, and giant "pig pile" celebration with a single to right field.
Jackson Gould pitched 8 innings of fantastic baseball - with five strike outs and no walks - to hold Inglemoor scoreless after the first inning and Kassin Matson pitched a 1-2-3 9th inning with three strike outs to earn the mop up win.
Bothell Varsity Lacrosse faced off against Eastlake Friday, April 26th at Eastlake. It was a physical game that ended with Eastlake winning 17-8.
Ryan Metz and Bryce MacDonald led the Cougars in shots and goals. Goalie Trent Suckut had another outstanding game with 15 saves. The highlight of the game occurred as time was expiring in the 2nd quarter. Defenseman Gabe Erickson had a 60 yard shot (length of field) that resulted in a goal for the Cougars. Congratulations to Gabe!
The Cougars' last home game is Monday at 7:45pm against Redmond. We hope to see you there.
Varsity: Friday night the boys took a long trip down to Renton to face Liberty in our last non-league game. Riding a 2 non-loss streak, we wanted to continue the momentum heading into our last game of the season.
We started off knocking the ball pretty well, but we were still playing pretty slow. Liberty was able to capitalize on a mistake and score. Within 2 minutes, we were able to pick up the tempo and get into the attacking third. Cody Winkleman found the ball on his foot, played a 1-2 pass with Riley Lathrop, and Cody scored to tie it 1-1. Cody wasn't done yet, as Noe Guzman played a great longball into the box. After a couple of bounces the ball ended up with Cody and he finished again.
The scoreline would hold despite Liberty pressing the entire 2nd half.
2-1 Bothell and our first winning streak in 2 years.
Everybody that could play did and got solid minutes. We hope to see everyone Tuesday night for senior night against North Creek!
JV: We had a great second win of the season on Friday against Liberty. We got off to a great start in the first half. Defensively, we were organized in the back line allowing very few chances. Offensively, we got two goals - one from Miles Barrett (his second memorable goal from the center back position on a great volley) and Jadon Taylor. Both finishes were very composed. In the second half, we got on the score sheet again with Calvin Kerns drawing and converting a penalty. From there, things got a little bit dicey. Liberty pushed numbers forward and scored two quick goals to make the score 3-2. We adjusted and were able to finish the game with the lead 3-2. Overall, a great second team win!
We have our last game and Senior Night April 30 against North Creek.
We wanted to give you all a recap of the Spring Sprints Regatta that your athletes participated in on Saturday.
It was a great day with nearly 90 athletes from the four schools participating in over 25 different events throughout the day. We were hampered by heavy winds so the course was shortened from the traditional 2000m to a 500m sprint. That was probably a good thing as everyone got to row in at least 2 events with some rowing 3 or 4 events. Though our athletes are in great shape and would have done fine rowing that many 2Ks, it would have been tough. The team did a great job overcoming the weather and equipment challenges throughout the day and represented Northshore School's extremely well with the following results:
First Place - Women's Novice 8+, Men's 8+, Women's Open 8+, Men's Novice 8+, & Women's 4+
Second Place - Novice Mixed 8+, Women's Novice 8+, Men's 8+, Men's 4+, Women's Open 8+, Men's Novice 8+, & Men's 4+
Third Place - Novice Mixed 8+, Women's 4+, Men's 8+, Men's 4+, Women's 8+, & Men's 4+
Golf - At Snohomish Golf Course -- Will keep you updated on girls results as I learn them.
Saturday -- Tennis
