Crusaders win another heart-stopper to reach state

The Eastside Catholic High School boys basketball team has formed some good habits when it comes to late-game heroics.

The Crusaders are a perfect 5-0 this season in games decided by six points or less, and their 53-51 win over the Wilson Rams in a Feb. 28 regional playoff game at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma punched their ticket for another state-tournament berth.

By Greg Farrar Eastside Catholic’s Mandrell Worthy, pictured in a January game against Garfield, had a team-high 20 points last week against Wilson as the Crusaders earned a return to this week’s Class 3A state quarterfinals.

Elections

Election results finalized

Final primary election results differed little from election night, setting the stage for the November general election.

In the judicial race, Lisa O’Toole, of Newcastle, looks like she could cruise to victory, having garnered more than 60.5 percent of the primary vote in a three-way race. Her opponent will be Sammamish’s Marcus Naylor, who earned a little more than 20 percent. Snoqualmie’s Rick Leo got 19 percent, and will not move on to the general election.

The only other contested race in Sammamish was for U.S. Congress, where incumbent Rep. Dave Reichert (R-8) also looks good in November. He won nearly 59 percent of the vote in another three-way primary. Jason Ritchie (D) got almost 32 percent while Keith Arnold got less than 9 percent. Reichert and Ritchie will appear on the general election ballot.
