Bothell Boys Golf hosted a winning match against Mt Si yesterday with a winning score of 202-204 (we're the lower score, 'cuz that's how it works). It was an exciting match right down to the end. Taighan Chea (9) was the medalist (lowest score of the match) with an even par 35. Walker Lamb (12) came in with a one-over par 36. Our other three scores were Spencer Dunn (11) with a 41, Krish Pillai (10) with a 42, and Oliver Kemper (12) with a 48. This is the first time we know of that Bothell has beaten a Kingco team. We have beaten NSD teams and Seattle teams, but these country club Kingco teams are tough to beat. Looking forward to our next match with this wonderful team!



The Cougs hosted the Mustangs of Redmond yesterday in Boys tennis. Redmond has won the crown division the last 6 years, and they are a talented team again. Bothell has some great points/matches. We continue to compete regardless of who we play. 


Henry Crumbaugh continues to play at a high level at #3 singles. He won 6-3, 4-6, 12-10 in a match that lasted over two hours. Our 2nd doubles team played their hearts out and came up a little short with a 3-6, 6-2, 9-11 battle. Today we travel to Inglemoor to take on the Vikes. Go Cougs

In a wild back and forth match with Kamiak last night, the BHS varsity girls soccer team played their best game of the young season. The Cougs had the majority of possession and for much of the match dominated the play against a quality Kamiak team. We struggled defending set pieces, giving up Kamiak goals on multiple corner and direct kicks, and they added one more in the run of play. But Bothell showed fantastic resilience, fighting back all night and overcoming Kamiak leads 4 different times, matching the Knights with an offensive explosion of our own. With two goals from Sydney Hamaker and additional goals by Piper JudeNatalie Mahlen, and a late goal from Sydney Lipkin, the match ended in a 5-5 draw. Despite feeling like we should’ve came away with the win, it was definitely a positive step and momentum-builder going forward for the team, especially on offense where we scored as many goals in one match as we scored all of last season.    


Bothell HS Girls JV Soccer traveled to Kamiak HS to defeat the Knights in an action-packed game.  Bothell started off the scoring when Camryn Makanui battled against the goalie and a couple Kamiak defenders, at the same time, to find the back of the net.  Kamiak HS answered with a goal just before halftime to tie it up 1-1.  The Cougars came back strong in the second half when Bailey Petrin scored a magic goal to take the lead 2-1.  Kamaik HS continued to fight and tied the game up 2-2.   Ellie Petrin scored the game winner off a freekick from Camryn Makanui to secure the 3-2 victory.  It should be noted that Bailey Petrin's opening goal was her third goal in three games and their record improved to 2-1-0.

Bothell JV Volleyball traveled to Yakima to play in a 16-team tournament on Saturday.  Finishing a strong 7th and was a great adventure to kick off the season.  If you see any of these girls on campus, feel free to ask about their volleyball weekend!



On Saturday (09-09-23) the JV Girls soccer team was victorious over Juanita HS with a 3-0 shutout.  Sophomore Bailey Petrin opened up the scoring in the first half and then Freshman Paige Choppa added a second goal just before the half to go into halftime with a 2-0 lead.  Paige Choppa scored her second goal around the 60th minute of the game for a nice insurance goal for the 3-0 victory.  The recorded shut out was done through committee.  Due to unavailability of the two JV goalies Junior Lyla Wood stepped up to assist by tending the goal for the shut out in the first half.  Sophomore Camryn Makanui and goal scorer Paige Choppa completed the shut out by sharing time in the goal in the second half.  The shutout was a great team effort by the stingy and physical defensive play of Sophomore's Gracie Kromholtz, Ana Quest, Caitlin Smith, Maya Hage, Ellie Petrin and Freshman Emi Ottersburg.  Congratulations to all the team for their exceptional play and effort.  Their next game is versus Kamiak High School this Tuesday in a non-conference match at Kamiak.

Freshman Football:

The Freshman Team opened up the season at home last night with a WIN vs Lake Washington.  The game started off a little rough on both sides with mistakes and penalties but once the nerves settled in the Bothell Freshman Team came out with a 28-6 win.

The Bothell Line dominated this game from the start.  The big guys up front played hard and were no match for the Kangs.  With the combination of passing and running the Cougars started off the night with the first score.  Cyion Soeum scored the first TD with a pair of physical runs up the middle to get us in the end zone.  Gabe Berrios added the PAT field goal which he was 4-4 last night.   After Lake Washington scored to make the game 7-6 the Cougars took control of the game.  QB Matt Small had a great night connecting with several receivers and leading the offense into the end zone for 3 more scores.  Small threw a 25-yard TD to Carlin Gochnour.  He also connected on shorter pass plays to two different Tight Ends Colton Bryan and Hadden Neal 

 The Defense was fun to watch all night.  Lake Washington tried everything.  Fly sweep, screens, deep balls and counters up the middle.  If it worked once it never worked again for the Kangs.  Colton Bryan got the first turnover with a sack and fumble that set up a Cougar score.  The D-Line who dominated this game up front and pressured Lake Washingtons QB all night got an interception by Alex Pearson.  Malia Marker got beat early in the night on a deep TD pass but got some revenge and Ended the Kangs last scoring hopes with a nice pick.  She also came up big with a few open field tackles and defended a few other deep pass attempts. 

We are very proud of how hard this group has worked and can't wait to compete again!


JVC Soccer:

The Bothell Girls JVC Soccer Team took on Mt. Si last night at Pop Keeney to kick off the 2023 season. It was a highly intense and physical game that resulted in Mt. Si receiving a couple of yellow cards. The girls fought hard and played exceptionally well, and the future looks very promising for this group of players. Mt. Si took a 1-0 lead about halfway through the second half, and the girls pushed really hard. They had an excellent opportunity to tie the game with a free-kick, only to see it hit the crossbar with about 3 minutes remaining.
