With no pool on campus and small numbers to start with, the Renton girls swim team didn’t need any more challenges. Yet another challenge is just what the team got this season.
There’s standing-room only at Hazen girls swim practice these days. Or maybe swimming-room only, because in her fourth season head coach Diane Dobson continues to bring in new members. The slew of Hazen swimmers and divers this season numbers at 63, with only two returners lost.
With a talented group returning and three freshmen starting, the Lindbergh girls soccer team is looking to maintain a spot near the top of the Seamount League.
Hazen beat Highline 1-0 on Sept. 11.
The Liberty football team made the state playoffs in 2005 after an 18-year drought. Head coach Steve Valach is determined to not let that happen again.
At first glance the deck may be appear to be stacked against the Liberty tennis team this season. With a new league configuration, the Patriots often match up against tough 4A competition. The team’s best two players are just sophomores.
Looking at the Liberty High soccer roster, coach Darren Trembley sees something familiar. The team kept five freshmen on the varsity roster this season. The last time he kept five varsity freshmen was back in 1998, and things worked out reasonably well then.
The Seattle Seahawks and the Virginia Mason Medical Center have partnered for nearly a decade to improve the health of adults and kids throughout the region.
The Seahawks’ new Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton makes – and leaves – a lot of impressions on viewers. The first impression is green, or the massive corrugated green walls of the indoor practice field. Stepping inside the lobby, brick, glass and wood make their mark. Wandering through the VMAC, you get a lot of other feelings: spacious, ample, occasionally even luxurious, but the one that stays with you is: well-designed. The team tossed what was needed, what was wanted and what was possible into a mixer and the product is one of the NFL’s best team facilities.
Shout it from the rooftops and the flag poles, the Seahawks are here and there’s some hope they’ll lay a golden egg.
The Virginia Mason Athletic Center is bounded by Interstate 405 to the east, Lake Washington to the west, residential properties to the north and open land area to the south.
The arrival of the Seattle Seahawks to their new team headquarters and practice facility in north Renton marks a milestone for the team and for the city. This special section is a look at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center, the team and the all-important 12th Man, the fans. COVER STORY, pages 8 and 9.
The Renton High volleyball team has a simple goal: collect more wins than losses.
With a returning state runner, a new state track runner and a bevy of talented freshman, the Hazen girls team cross country looks primed to compete for a league title and a spot at the state meet later this season.
The Liberty football team opened the season with a win for the first time since 2004. The Patriots blasted Ballard 43-7 on Sept. 5 at Seattle Memorial Stadium.
A dream realized, an opportunity seized. Quinton Richardson is making the most of his opportunity to play football at the University of Washington.
Upon first glance, the Lindbergh Eagles’ roster looks offensive. No, it isn’t unpleasant or repugnant. It is, however, built to score a serious number of points.
The Hazen Highlanders jumped out to a 7-0 lead against Auburn Mountainview in the first quarter of the first game in 2007. After that, things took a turn for the worse. The Lions outscored Hazen 35-0 the rest of the way and the Highlanders dropped five games in a row to start the season.
Call him shifty, call him elusive. Call him lightning in a 5-foot-8 bottle. Whatever you want to call him, just know Justin Forsett is making a strong case to crack the running back rotation in the Seattle Seahawks lineup.
The moment is probably still burned in the minds of diehard Renton High fans. The night was Oct. 25. The Kennedy Lancers had just rattled off 21 points in the fourth quarter and withstood a futile, late-game charge by the Indians to hang on and win. The cost: an outright Seamount title for Renton.
