SportsSkyline soccer shows heart in capturing third place
Recovering from a heartbreaking loss isn’t something the Skyline Spartans wanted to do at the Class 4A state soccer tournament, but they did it successfully last weekend.
Skyline got goals from three of its top offensive players — Lindsey Fujiwara, Amanda Johnston and Kelli Sullivan — to earn a 3-1 win over the Gig Harbor Tides in the match for third and fourth places Nov. 22 at Sparks Stadium in Puyallup.

ElectionsElection 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.
