This year’s Eastlake High School boys tennis team is versatile — so versatile, in fact, the Wolves’ top singles player may turn to doubles in the postseason.
Thiago Bandeira continued his strong junior season Oct. 7 when host Eastlake claimed a 7-0 victory over the Woodinville Falcons in Class 4A KingCo Conference play.
Bandeira used an arsenal of cross-court winners, accurate serving and occasional forays to the net to dispatch Max Wing, 6-4, 6-1, in the No. 1 singles match.

After the first two sets, Janna Tonahill gathered her players together and delivered a succinct message that seemed to resonate.
“We need to play our game,” Tonahill said. “This isn’t the Eastlake volleyball team that’s been showing up every day.
“Let’s show ourselves we can do this. Let’s show Bellevue who Eastlake really is.”
Trailing 2-0, the Wolves took their coach’s words to heart and nearly carved out a comeback of epic proportions. But after sending the match to a fifth set, they fell short against Bellevue in a nonconference battle of undefeated teams Sept. 30 at Eastlake High School.

The stars are aligning at the right time for the Eastlake High School boys cross country program in its attempt to have an historic season.
First, the Wolves have talent and depth. Three runners have returned from last year’s ninth-place finishers at the state meet, joining with several others who have high potential. Seven of coach Troy Anderson’s boys have already broken 17 minutes, 30 seconds over 5 kilometers.
Second, everyone is happy and healthy, although those things can change over the course of a grueling nine-week season.
“They’ve been working really hard and they’ve bought into the belief that they can be a great team,” Anderson said. “It’s not just about making state. They’ve made state the last two years, and now we want to build on that.”

The Eastlake Wolves girls soccer team had a solid nonconference run, going undefeated and outscoring their five opponents, 17-1.
But things got much tougher when Eastlake had to turn its attention to matches that matter, including Class 4A perennial powerhouse Skyline in the KingCo Conference opener.
Skyline got goals from Ke’ala Louie, Candace Hunter and Gabby Hart, and wore down Eastlake with speed at both ends of the field in a 3-1 victory Sept. 25 at Spartan Stadium.

The Eastlake High School boys golf team isn’t used to losing, dropping only two conference dual matches in the past four seasons, which makes the start to the 2014 season a bit surprising.
The Wolves lost two of their first three Class 4A KingCo Conference outings — to Redmond and Issaquah — but rebounded to even their record with a 208-210 victory over the Inglemoor Vikings Sept. 18 at the Sahalee Country Club’s par-36 south course.
In some ways, Eastlake has had to start from scratch this fall. Four-time state qualifier Spencer Weiss graduated, and the Wolves now feature four freshmen among their top-10 players.

By Greg Farrar Jeffrey Feinglas, Eastlake High School wide receiver, pushes aside Inglemoor sophomore defensive back Kyle Malsam (83) at the 30 yard line and eluded Alex Zamudio at the 10, on the way to a 40-yard touchdown run during the first quarter. A minute and 40 seconds later Feinglas got past the same two players on a catch-and-run for 69 yards and another touchdown.
Four touchdowns on 18 offensive plays, 208 yards of total offense, no first downs allowed on defense and a 27-0 lead. Read more

Anyone who attended an Eastlake High School girls sporting event in the past year likely saw Ellie Woerner in action.
During her junior year, Woerner was a three-sport standout for Eastlake. Last fall, she earned All-KingCo Conference second-team volleyball honors as a middle hitter. Over the winter, she averaged 11 points, three rebounds and two assists per game to help the Lady Wolves basketball squad win 18 games. And in the spring, she starred on the track by winning state medals in the 100-meter hurdles and 4×100 relay.

High-school football practices open Aug. 25, and the first games of the 2014 season will follow on the weekend after Labor Day.
The Class 4A KingCo Conference could be a more difficult gauntlet than ever for the Eastlake Wolves and Skyline Spartans. The conference has whittled down from 11 teams to nine – Ballard, Garfield and Roosevelt were reclassified as 3A schools, and Mount Si moves up to join the 4A schools.
Here are five things to watch for when the new season opens Sept. 5: Read more
