Finishing among the top-four teams and winning a trophy at the Class 4A state track and field championships is a difficult task, but Eastlake and Skyline high schools both had squads that accomplished the feat.
Eastlake’s boys scored 38 points to finish fourth, and Skyline’s girls scored 35 points for fourth, capping their respective seasons in style at Star Track XXXII, May 29-31 at Mount Tahoma High School in Tacoma.

There wasn’t much offense to support Skyline’s Caroline Bowman nor Eastlake’s Mikel Charles in last week’s Class 4A KingCo Conference fastpitch game.
Charles, though, got enough of it to outduel Bowman, and the Wolves knocked off the Spartans 2-0 April 15 at Skyline High School.
Charles was rarely threatened in leading the Wolves to their fourth KingCo win in five outings. The junior allowed one walk and three hits, all singles, while striking out six in a complete-game effort. She said her entire arsenal was working well against Skyline.

Don Braman has a conundrum most soccer coaches would love to have – three quality goalkeepers and only one starting spot.
Senior Jack O’Keefe and junior Brice Escobar are the most experienced players fighting for time, but sophomore Alex Appel has been just as good during the Skyline Spartans’ 10-game unbeaten streak to start the season.
Appel came in for the second half and made three crucial saves in the last 15 minutes, helping Skyline beat the visiting Roosevelt Roughriders 1-0 in Class 4A KingCo Conference boys soccer action on April 7.
His final save might have been his best as he climbed the ladder to get his fingertips on a drive from Roosevelt’s Jack Kussick, deflecting it over the goal just seconds before the final whistle.
