CROSS COUNTRY: 

 Bothell competed in their last league meet before the Kingco championships against North Creek and Newport. Newport is one of the best teams in the league on both the boys and girls side so it was a good indicator of where we stand leading into the championship race next week. The girls were once again lead by Monserrat Lopez and Kerstin Ly who finished 1st and 3rd. Kerstin went off course towards the end of the race or she would've easily finished 2nd. Bothell end up beating North Creek by 55 pts, 15-70 and beat Newport by 7 pts 24-31. 

On the boys side Amrit Banga won the boys race, just missing the course record by 5 seconds. Dylan Lennon finished second followed by Brandon Schenck 4th, Gage Herriott 5th and Garrett Lowe 6th. Bothell beat Newport by 26 pts, 18-44 and beat North Creek by 60 pts 15-75.  

FOOTBALL:

The Freshman team traveled to Woodinville last night and lost 28-21.  Down 14-0 the Cougars came back and got our first score of the game by Edwin Zamorano from the 2yd line set up by a Sam Stewart 60 yard screen play.  The Cougars got the ball back again and drove down the field from runs by Luke Olson, Johnny O’Brien and Kyree Percival.  The Cougars scored on a short pass from Myles Anderson to Sam Stewart.  The offense stayed on the field and made the 2pt conversion on a short pass from  Anderson to Marcus Heffernan to tie the game.  The defense played hard but just had too many missed tackles.  Defensively Sam Stewart was all over the field and made around 700 tackles.  The Cougars offense struggled with 3 turnovers (2 Interceptions and a fumble).  The Offensive line did a great job blocking up front and opening holes; Adam Smith, Luka Vincic, Ty Olcese, Aron Reynolds and Anya McIntyre.  The Cougars were able to get another score late in the game with a deep pass from Issac Tran to Jimmy Tucker for 70 yards.  Charlie Shulkin made his first PAT of the year to make it 28-21.  The Young Cougars played hard and did everything they could to get back into this game.  We just needed the ball one more time.

 VOLLEYBALL:

 The JV Volleyball Team was on fire this week, winning all 6 sets in both matches. The first casualty was our new cross town rivals at North Creek. Thanks teachers for your support! Then the team took the long trip out to Skyline, making quick work of their JV squad. The team played with lots of energy and executed well. Amalie Onener was huge at the net, earning 3 blocks. The setting crew of Avarye Monsef, Jenna Milner and Jordan Hayden amassed 45 assists. Lauren Culp was near unstoppable with 16 kills. Freshman Janeé Hall and Jenna Legault each had 8 kills. Olivia Lemley was her consistent self, great serving, passing and defense. Lola Duvey made the most of her limited time in each set, passing at a 2.5 (out of 3) and earning 8 digs. Next up, traveling across town to play Woodinville Monday.

SOCCER:

V: Last night the girls varsity soccer team lost a very tough game to Woodinville.  We had many chances on goal last night from Devon Lipkin, Ella Stroup, Kaitlin Bean, Estera Levinte, Haley Zirker, and Hannah Cecil, but just couldn't find the back of the net.  Woodinville got their 1 chance to score and did. Ellen Tran had a tremendous night in goal, and our back line and mids fought hard, locked down by Rachel Madison.

JV: 4-0 loss. 

I was really impressed with how the girls played last night. Offensively, we had a couple of really good chances, and got unlucky that we didn't put 1-2 in. This is a Woodinville team that beat Skyline and only lost to Issaquah so they were tough.  Everyone had a great game and our bench kept it very positive, too. 

TENNIS:

The varsity boys tennis team lost 0-7 to Inglemoor. While the score does not show it, the team played extremely hard. Our boys continue to improve. We will need each player to commit to off season work so we can be competitive in the toughest league in the state. Outstanding match of the day, goes to Emmanuel Nguyen and David Lew at first doubles. This was the first time they played doubles together. They had great communication and used all their shots. Final score was 5-7, 4-6.

We close out the season today at a very much improved North Creek team.

Cross Country:

Bothell cross country had a great week with every athlete setting season pr's!  Yesterday we competed at the Bill Kehoe Invite in Olympia against 40 teams from around the state. 

The girls finished 1st overall winning by 48 points. Bothell was lead by Kerstin Ly's win and Moserrat Lopez's second place finish.

Bothell boys finished a close second to Olympia who's one of the best teams in the state. The boys' were lead by Amrit Banga's second place finish followed by Dylan Lennon, Brandon Schenck, Cameron Zundel, Garrett Lowe, Gage Herriott and Cooper Hayes. 

In the JV races the girls finished second by one point and were lead by Abby Lundy's second place finish, Kate Gaw's third place and Kasey Ly's eighth place.

The boys JV team won by 48 points with the top 5 boys finishing in the top 16 of the race. They were lead by Boyd Crumbaugh's third place finish. He was followed by Kyle Telnes fifth, Sol Badeaux sixth, Kaden Allen eighth and Brandon Hudson sixteenth.

Swim/Dive 

Last night, the girls swim and dive team competed at Redmond Pool where they were defeated by North Creek. Despite the defeat, we had a wonderful time celebrating our 5 seniors, Maya Crans, Natalie Iscoa Kleinsasser, Megan Miller, Sarah Nishimura, and Claire Patnode. Over all, the girls swam incredibly well. Almost everyone set a new best time in at least one of there races. One of the biggest drops from the night was Alexandra Fisher in the 500 freestyle. She dropped 51 seconds from her previous time! Claire Patnode also had an incredible meet. She dropped 12 seconds in her 200 freestyle and 30 seconds in her 500 freestyle. Haley Kamikawa took 3rd in the 100 breaststroke and 50 freestyle. Maya Crans took 2nd in the 200 freestyle and 4th 50 freestyle. Sophie Herron, Caitlin Sylvester and Maya Crans are just on the cusp of making KingCo cuts in several different events. The girls will return to Juanita Pool Thursday October 11th where they will take on Juanita High School.

Swim/Dive -- Senior night Oct 4 -- THAT'S TODAY!  Come watch the splash at Redmond Pool!

CROSS COUNTRY: (Senior night coming up - Oct 10)

The Boys and Girls teams traveled to North Bend to compete against Mt Si and Woodinville in a Kingco 3 way meet.  The girls team beat Mt. Si and Woodinville even though they did not have all of their athletes.  Sophmore Monserat Lopez led the charge in a seasons best time of 19:21 for a second place finish.  Kerstin Ly (4th) Taylor Zundel (8th) Maggie Hayes (10th) and Samantha Crumbaugh (14) rounded out the scoring. 

On the Boys side the Cougars were still operating without two of their top 5 runners and finished in 3rd place.  Dylan Lennon was the top scorer for Bothell in 4th place with a time of 16:34.  Followed by Andrew Herriott(9) Garrett Lowe(10) Cameron Zundel (11) and Cooper Hayes (19)   Boyd Crumbaugh, Kyle Telnes, Sol Badeaux, Kaden Allen and Joseph Franco all ran Personal Bests and are looking to finish the season strong.

Both the mens and womens teams travel to Olympia Saturday for the Bill Kehoe South Sound Invitational where they will compete against 30 other teams.  Both teams should be at full strength and ready to challenge for the podium. 

FOOTBALL:

Freshman Football:  The Freshman Team hosted Skyline last night and won in a close game 14-13. 

Special teams had a great night!  Sam Stewart and Adam Smith blocked an extra point (PAT).  Luke Olson had 2 great Kick returns to mid field and nearly broke one for a potential TD.  Our Kick off team pinned our opponent inside the 5 and 20 yard line giving us great field position.  Luke Olson was perfect on his 2 PAT field goals.  Charlie Shulkin played in his first game last night with a deep kick off and making a few tackles at LB.  Thaydon Block had a nice 25 yard punt return.  Offensively: Luke Olson did the scoring  for the Cougars with 2 touchdown runs.  Johhny O’brien and Edwin Zamorano did a great job carrying the ball up the middle and extending drives for the offense.  Defensively: Our DB’s got tested all night with short and deep passes.  Thaydon Block got another Interception last night (3 on the year).  Marcus Heffernan and Dakota Joseph saved us a few times knocking down deep passes and making some great open field tackles.  Johnny O’brien and Sam Stewart led the team in total tackles.  The Offensive and Defensive line group worked hard all night against a physical Skyline front;  Anya McIntyre, Ty Olcese, Luka Vincic, Aron Reynolds, Seth Lind, Noah Ochoa and Adam Smith.  We were very proud of the way this team played together last night.  They wanted this WIN more than Skyline.

GOLF: 

The Boys Golf Team celebrated Senior Night by putting up their best score of the season vs. Inglemoor at Mill Creek yesterday. It was fitting that senior co-captain Cameron Ley shot a career-best 45, finishing in front of an appreciative gallery on the 9th hole by sinking a twelve foot birdie putt! Seniors Spencer Haney (co-captain), Henry Suen and Caleb Balee also contributed to the Cougar effort. This senior group has provided outstanding leadership throughout the year and have been wonderful role models for their younger teammates. We will miss them next year!

The Cougs finish off KingCo league play next Monday vs. North Creek.

On Friday, we'll be competing in a new event, the Northshore Challenge, where our top six golfers will be competing against the best six from Inglemoor, North Creek and Woodinville.

The season will conclude with the KingCO tournament October 15th and 16th.

SOCCER:

Varsity soccer traveled to face a competitive Eastlake Wolves team. The group started off the game ready to compete and had a game plan that would frustrate Eastlake. We consistently forced Eastlake to turn the ball over, defended as a team, and created chances in the attack. Midway through the first half, we earned another deep throw-in in Eastlakes half. Ashley Weller had a great throw to Hannah Cecil, who would make a great pass to a crashing Madison Barker.  Madison was composed and had a great finish to put Bothell up 1-0.

We have now had 9 players score this season.

Eastlake would score on a weird lucky bounce to take the game 1-1 into half. Unfortunately, we faced a bit of adversity in the 2nd half, and we could not, as a team, compete the rest of the game. 3-1 Eastlake.

Rachel Madison had another awesome night holding down our backline, alongside Ariana Wilson, Delaney Smith, and Taylor McKinnon. Estera Levinte also showed why she is one of the toughest players to defend in the league. Hannah Cecil had another gutsy performance. Ellen Tran communicated well all night and helped keep the game competitive making several big saves.

VOLLEYBALL:  NCHS on Monday, OCTOBER 8JV game kicks off at 5:15; V at 7:00. See you in the stands.

V: Battle of the Big Cats took place in our gym last night.  Unfortunately the very TALL Mt. Si Wildcats prevailed over our tenacious Cougars  17-25,25-21,21-25,16-25.

Haley Gaw led the battle with 5 aces, 6 kills and 7 assists along with her setting partner Lizzy Shrum (6 kills 16 assists)

Our outside hitters struggled with the big block but Tess Hoover contributed 5 kills with great swings out of the middle.

JV:  Rebounding after Monday’s loss, the JV Volleyball Team started slow last night, but then turned on the afterburners and cruised to a 3 set win over Mount Si.

Though our passing couldn’t handle Mount Si’s tough serves with consistency, our serving (94.6%) and hitting (26 kills) more than made up for it. Olivia Lemley (4), Jenna Milner (4), and Avarye Monsef (5) served up ace after ace. Amalie Onener had a break out night with 3 aces, 100% serving, and 3 kills. The Jenna’s (Milner & Legault) only had 1 error hit between them, ending with a combined 14 kills. The team also had a season high with blocks. Contributing to the effort was: Amalie Onener (2), Avarye Monsef (2), Jenna Legault (3), and Sienna Bell (1).


10/1 RESULTS:

FOOTBALL: JV heads off to Skyline...

It was a blustery evening on the plateau. Wind and rain could not keep the Cougars from Bothell down.
 
The defense stuffed the Spartans all night, the lone exception, a breakaway run for 60 yards. Gunner Genoway and Gabe Johnson caused havoc with every spartan attempt.
 
Mercer Nafe intercepted a Skyline pass, Eric Corier had a knockdown.
 
Luca Costanza battered the Skyline defense with his tough running style, the Cougar offensive line (Jaeger Meeks and Jack Whisky) really stepped up in the 2nd half. 
 
Andrew Sirmon connect twice with Gabe Erickson in the enzone for both Bothell touchdowns.
 
Bothell conquers Spartans 14-7 !
 
TENNIS: -- RAINED OUT
 
VOLLEYBALL:
V: Cougars could NOT catch the Eagles in flight last night.
Despite the girls' great effort and competitive spirit on the court, the girls did not win the defensive battle last night at Issaquah HS.  Some spectacular rallies ensued while Faith Brooks led the offensive charge with 13 kills and Elizabeth Shrum had 30 assists!  Tia Potts, Alyssa Moran and Olivia Dillon anchored our defensive and SR with a stellar performances cleaning up the floor with their jerseys!  Tough loss but a step in right direction in our quest for consistency.   Girls might be super tired today -- didn't get back to BHS until 10 last night
JV: It was a long trip out to Issaquah last night and though we did not get the results we would like, the JV Volleyball Team fought hard in a 1-2 defeat. Individual highlights were 100% serving efforts by Amalie Onener, Avarye Monsef, Jenna Legualt, Lauren Culp, and Valeria Fierro. Jenna Legault had a big night at the net, smashing down 7 kills. Lauren Culp, Olivia Lemley and Valeria Fierro were all solid back row players.

FOOTBALL
BHS beats Skyline in the end -- 34 - 30. 
 
SWIM/DIVE:
The Bothell swim/dive team competed against Redmond High School last night at Juanita Pool. Unfortunately, the girls were defeated by Redmond. That did not stop of our them from setting new best times. Sophie Herron, who dropped 15 seconds last week in the 500 freestyle, dropped another 13 seconds this week, finishing in a 7:04! The 100 freestyle proved to be another great race for Bothell as all three varsity swimmers, Aubrey Loken, Audrey Meyer and Stella Smith, set new best times. The girls next swim/dive meet will be at Redmond Pool Thursday October 4th against North Creek High School.
 
TENNIS:
The Varsity Boys tennis team lost 6-1 to a much improved Mt. SI. team yesterday. The boys showed energy and hustle all day.  Outstanding performance was put in by Slone Sasouvanh at #4 singles. Slone was dominant all day. He moved his opponent around the court and had great composure. His score was 6-0, 6-1. He is now 5-2 on the year 

9/26 RECAPS:
FOOTBALL:
Freshman Football:  The Freshman Team traveled to North Creek last night and lost 20-13.  The Offense struggled with 6 turnovers and got stopped on the 1 yard line on another possession.  It was definitely a game the Cougars should have won.  Sam Stewart had a great game on defense and caught 3 passes.  Sam had a nice 50 yard TD catch that got called back on a penalty in the last few minutes of the game.  Luke Olson scored on 40 yard run breaking a few tackles along the way.  Edwin Zamorano had a nice TD catch with a great run to get into the end zone.   The offensive line showed some passion and played tough all night led by Ty Olcese, Luka Vincic, Noah Ochoa and Anya McIntyre.  Defensively the Cougars gave up one big play but played hard all night.  Thaydon Block was all over the field and came up with the an interception in the end zone.  He also tied with Sam Stewart for the most tackles.  Aron Reynolds was doing everything he could on the defensive front and played with a ton of heart.  The defense struggled  getting stops on 3rd downs and had a few too many missed tackles when we really needed it.  The players were really frustrated at the end of the game but played the best they ever have this year in the last quarter of the game.  It was a quiet bus ride home but I think the young Cougars will learn from this and take it out on our next opponent Skyline. 
 
SOCCER:
Last night the soccer team took on a very tough Skyline soccer team, and lady luck was not on our side. Skyline scored on just about every opportunity they had on goal, none of which were stellar goals; they just happened to find the net.   BHS 1 - Skyline 6.
Before the game, I asked the girls what their mark on the season was going to be -- how would fans and opposing teams remember us. And to that extent, we showed that we are willing to fight for one another no matter what. Whenever we got scored on, we were quick to pick each other up and move on to the next play. It was a never say die attitude. The fans were behind us all night which doesn't happen if a team had given up. We were able to net a goal in the 2nd half. Estera Levinte played a great ball in from the 40 on a free kick, and Devon Lipkin had a one-time finish. Rachel Madison, Ari Wilson, and Ellie Sirmon all had great performances in the back line. On to the next vs. a beatable Eastlake team.
 
TENNIS:
The Varsity Boys tennis team played their best match of the year so far. Even though we came up short against Woodinville, 2-5 ,the boys played well.  David Lew won a marathon match at #1 singles, 3-6, 7-6, 7-5. Slone Sasouvanh continued his outstanding play at #4 singles winning 6-1, 6-0 And Emmanuel Nguyen went three tough sets and played through some tough leg cramps. His scores were 4-6, 6-1, 1-6.   Alex Switzer and Lucas Fowler played a good match at #2 doubles. They won the first set 6-2 but had a difficult time closing out and lost the next two sets 0-6, 3-6.
 
VOLLEYBALL:
Volleyball wins home opener!
Varsity took care of business last night by defeating Newport 25-17, 25-17, 26-24.   Weathering the storm in the 3rd set the girls rallied to uphold
90.5% serving with 37 kills in 3 sets.  Alyssa Moran, Faith Brooks and Haley Gaw combined for 28 of our 37 kills. Lizzy Shrum racked up 27 assists.
 
JV Volleyball Team completed their 4th sweep of the year and are now 7-0!
Olivia Lemley had a nasty serve last night, ending with 4 aces while serving at 93%. Lauren Culp & Lola Duvey added to the effort by serving at 100%. Jenna Milner jumped out of the gym on numerous occasions and spiked down 8 kills. Amalie Onener is starting to heat up, add 4 more kills to the mix. A solid defensive night is what powered us to victory.
The JV squad earned a season high 76 kills on the night. Jenna Milner, Olivia Lemley, Lauren Culp, Grace Dillon, Janeé Hall, Jordan Hayden and Valeria Fierro all contributed to the effort.

GOLF:

The boys golf team had a great day of golf at the beautiful but challenging Bear Creek Country Club Tuesday afternoon. The boys continue to improve each week, and the camaraderie the team has is fun to see! Junior Evan Deforest started his round with 5 straight pars before getting bitten by "The Bear"! Along the way, he sunk a 30 or 40 foot putt that the Redmond boys he played against were still talking about after the match. Sophomore Anthony Sendejas continues to put up good scores, as do the Haney brothers, Parker and Spencer. Cody Winkelman might be our most improved golfer at this point, consistently shooting 12-15 strokes better than he did our first match. Cameron Ley continues to set a positive example for our team with his great attitude and outstanding sportsmanship!

Our next match is next Monday Vs. Issaquah at Snoqualmie Falls Golf Course.

TENNIS:

Boys Varsity tennis lost to Newport 7-0 yesterday. Newport is a very experienced team and #1 in the Kingco Conference. The battled and gave great effort. The team is learning how tough our league is and realize how much work they need to put in.

A shut-out! Led by Gage Potter and Ryan Metz up front, Darius Kubalanza and Riley Morrison in the secondary. Morrison intercepted a North Creek Pass in the endzone to seal the shout out.

SOCCER:

Varsity faced Juanita:  With 18 minutes left in the first half Estera Levinte put one in the net!  BHS 1 – 0.    Second half:  Hannah Cecil had a shot on goal that the Rebel goalie caught...should have been a score.  Estera followed up minutes later with a second near miss.  Lots of pressure on their goalie.  Amelia Poppenhagen, who was our goalie second half, made a tremendous double save off a Rebels near score.  With 26 minutes left in the game Haley Zirker gets a goal to make the lead 2 - 0.  Then Kinsley Berry scores the third (and final) goal for Bothell off a free kick.

Sept 20 recap

Swim/Dive:
The BHS Swim and Dive team competed against Lake Washington yesterday at Juanita Pool. Many of our girls stepped up without complaint to fill last minute relay spots, which required some cooperation and flexibility from everyone! Although Lake Washington defeated Bothell, many of our girls had significant time drops. Caitlin Sylvester took 4th in the 500 free with a time of 7:12.14, dropping 15 seconds from her previous time. Not far behind Caitlin was Sophie Herron, who finished with a time of 7:17.64, knocking 14 seconds off her previous time. Congrats to Maya Cran who hit a KingCo qualifying time in the 100 free with a time of 1:05.43!
Great job to Sarah Nishimura! Sarah took 1st place in diving scoring 165.00 points leading her team in diving as a captain and a strong competitor. Maggie Dempsey a new freshman diver was third place and scored a 159.00. Great job to all the divers and swimmers.
Next Thursday, the Swim & Dive team will return to Juanita Pool to compete against Redmond High School. 
Tennis
The Varsity Boys tennis team lost 6-1 to a very tough Skyline team. All the boys competed for every ball and were mentally focused throughout the match. Skyline had more experienced players.
The match of the day was again put in by Slone Sasouvanh. After dropping the first set 4-6, Slone went on to take the next two sets 6-3, 6-2. Slone has figured out how to be patient and plays with great savvy.

CROSS COUNTRY:

Update  Wed 19th @ Issaquah .   Boys:  Issaquah 25, Bothell 32.  The Bothell boys represented themselves extremely well.  Dylan Lennon led the varsity team finishing 2nd while Gage Herriott, Cameron Zundel and Garret Lowe finished 5th, 6th and 7th.   

Girls:  Issaquah 21, Bothell 40.  The Bothell girls also fought hard against the reigning KingCo Champion Issaquah team.  The girls team was led by Kerstin Ly’s 2nd place finish followed by Monserrat Lopez’s in 5th and Taylor Zundel in 8th

Both the boys and girls ran very strong with many PR’s and season bests recorded on a very difficult Issaquah course.  The team will head to Wenatchee this weekend for the Wenatchee Invitational.

Football: BHS  Freshman 14 O'Dea 12.
 
The freshman team played well last night against a very good and big O'Dea team.  The visiting team showed up with 60+ players, 12 coaches and filled the stands with fans. 
 
The Freshman started off great with a nice kick off return from Luke Olson that put us on Odea's 40 yard line.  Next play was a sweep to Luke that gained another 25 yards.  We threw a short pass to Kyree Percival that put inside the 10 and then Luke finished it off with another great run around the end to put the Cougars on the board early. 
 
The Offense came back again with a 60 yard TD pass from Isaac Tran to Jimmy Tucker.  The Cougars were up 14-0 after the half.  O'Dea came out of the half scoring on their first 2 drives but missing both extra points.  The Irish used up most of the clock running the ball.  The O-line had to deal with a lot of pressure last night and opened up some holes for Johnny O'Brien who pounded the ball up the middle to keep the Cougar offense moving; Anya McIntyre, Noah Ochoa, Ty Olcese, Aron Reynolds and Luka Vincic did most of the work up front.
 
The Bothell Defense stepped up last night and came up with some big stops when we needed it.  Sam Stewart and Adam Smith led the team in tackles and big plays.  Thaydon Block and Henry Fackrell broke up the few pass plays they attempted and made some impressive open field tackles.  The Defensive front was undersized up front but played with a ton of heart.  By the end of the night we were out hitting our opponent and showed how physical we could play. 
 
The Bothell team was very excited over our big win!  The Freshman team ended the night with our lead singer Elijah Leach singing happy birthday to Adam Smith.  After 3 Birthdays in a row we are getting pretty good at it.  Johnny O'Brien (17th), Isaac Araki (18th) and Adam Smith (19th).  We are very proud of this group and how well they have come together as a TEAM. 
 
SOCCER
Varsity Bothell soccer was away again (4th in a row) at Newport High School for another league game. The message tonight was control what we can control. Ignore the outside noise, ignore how good or bad the other team may be, and focus on how we play the game. The girls did just that and controlled the game from whistle to whistle. We started in a new, aggressive formation, and scored early. Estera Levinte opened the scoring with a great solo goal. Soon after, Hannah Cecil scored by following up a shot after some great ball movement by the team. The game ended 2 to 0, but could have easily been a 5 to 0 game.
 
Kaitlin Bean was dangerous all night long, with other great performances by Haley Zirker and Devon Lipkin. Rachel Madison held down the backline and kept our defense intact, along with Ari Wilson. Delaney Smith was also dangerous in the attack and defensively.
 
JV vs Newport: What a great match the girls played yesterday. 5-0 win at Newport. Our backline of Evie Smith, Katie Branscomb, Avery Gerard, Audrey Miller, and Zobe Murray did a great job shutting down the opponents attack and keeping the shutout. Keepers Amelia Poppenhagen and Kiki Dempsey did an outstanding job of communicating. Offensively, we were lead by Kinsley Berry who had 2 great goals and another 3 assists. Meghan Cloninger had 2 more goals, and was great positionally all night. It was a great boost having Izzy Maletich back in the midfield, also notching a goal. It was a great team effort, and we were able to see a lot of girls play in new positions that will help us down the stretch. 

JV - We had a tough game on Saturday in that we lost, but we played our best and most complete match of the season.  We sustained almost constant pressure in their half. Our back line did a great job of stepping up and keeping the ball.  We had a nice goal by Kinsley Berry on a great first shot and follow.  The girls battled to the final whistle.

VOLLEYBALL

SEPT 18:

GOLF:    The Golf team is off to a great start for the 2018 season! This will be a year of lots of learning and improvement, as we are a young and inexperienced team. Under the leadership of senior captains Cameron Ley and Spencer Haney, the guys have very positive attitudes and a great work ethic. We had a great victory vs. Juanita and continue to post better scores with each match.  The team is having the opportunity to play some of the best courses in the region, already having played Sahalee Country Club, The Plateau Club, and our home course, Mill Creek Country Club!

Team members include Cameron Ley, Spencer Haney, Parker Haney, Anthony Sendejas, Evan DeForest, Caleb Balee, Cody Winkelman, Derek Rodriguez, Michael Marquess, Rotor Luigs, Henry Suen, Kaleb Coil and Jeremiah Wadsworth.

TENNIS:     The varsity boys tennis team lost 0-7 to Issaquah yesterday. Our effort and willingness to compete for every ball is our identity.  One phrase we live out as a team is, "sometimes you win, sometimes you learn" -- we are learning a lot. Our outstanding performer, was Slone Sasouvanh at #4 singles. He battled all day before dropping the third set in a super tie-breaker. His scores were, 6-1, 2-6, 7-10


TENNIS:
Bothell boys' JV team routed Sammamish on Friday 7-0.  First singles Ben Fisher won 8-4, second singles Thomas Monahan topped his opponent 8-4, Brendan Monahan beat his opponent 8-4,  and Lorenzo Kim finished off his opposition 8-2.  First doubles team of Nathan Davis and Chimeh Esegbue squeaked by 8-7, and second doubles duo of Henry Haight and Alex Wong won 8-6.  Exhibition winners included Unique Gonzales 6-3, and Ben Fisher 3-2.  The JV TEAM IS NOW 2-2 FOR THE SEASON.
SEPT 17 RESULTS:
FOOTBALL:
JV played O'Dea monday night!
 
Defense was awesome. The Linebacker crew of Gunner Genoway, Jaime Manrique, Gabe Erickson, Josiah Cantrel, Luca Costanza physically battled all night. 
 
Safeties Mercer Nafe, Bryce McDonald, Eric Corier and Ryan Liu played solid against run and pass.
 
On offense, we moved the ball on the ground and through the air. Andrew Sirmon threw 3 TD passes while extending plays and drives with his legs. Mercer Naff caught a TD, Gabe Erickson caught 2 TD's including the game winner with less that a minute to go!
 
Branden Bird, Gabe Portolese, Luca Costanza ran the ball hard, setting up the passing game.
 
All of it was due to the tough job the O-line had. Great job by Jackson Burnham, Jaeger Meeks, Sean Witters, Patrick Conner, Josiah Cantrell, Cole Morgan, Jack Winsky and Jack Kessler.
 
Final Score. BHS 20 O'Dea 14
 
 
VOLLEYBALL:
Varsity: Down 2 sets and struggling to find consistency, our varsity volleyball team was faced with a major challenge last night against the LW Kangaroos.  In true Bothell Pride spirit, they rallied back to tie the match 2-2, facing ANOTHER 5th set match. This time the Cougars sent the Kangaroos a hopping with a 15-13 win!
Strong serving performances from Tia Potts and Alyssa Moran kept LW scrambling and Alyssa led the team in kills with 11 while Faith Brooks, Jenna Legault and Lizzy Shrum brought the smack down with 8,8,& 7 kills.  Tia Potts also had a fantastic night anchoring our serve receive game, passing a 2.1 (3 being the perfect) for the night.  Great momentum win heading into league play against Inglemoor on Wed.  
 
JV: The JV team went on the road to Lake Washington yesterday and came away with a W. What the team lacked in serving efficiency, they made up in toughness, earning 14 aces on the night. Jordan Hayden led the way with 4, while serving 89.5%. Close behind was Jenna Milner, Lauren Culp, and Olivia Lemley with 3 each. Lauren Culp continues to lead the way at the night, pounding down 9 kills for the night. See you Wednesday at Inglemoor!
