The Renton co-ed tennis team is looking to continue improving in 2008.
Andrey Levkiv came painfully close to a 3A state shot-put title in 2007. Just a sophomore, he finished an inch and a half behind the leader and in third place.
After a 5-0 loss to Evergreen on Tuesday, it was easy for Renton High soccer coach Duane Nakamura to question the consistency of his rebuilding team.
Hazen baseball coach Chris Chiechi knew he had a legitimate ace and a couple of strong role players on the pitching staff. What he didn’t know is that in a late-season game, he would get great innings from a sophomore and a senior that hadn’t pitched in 2008.
As high school and club soccer start to cross paths more, players who choose to play for both teams are often caught in the middle of a fight for their skills and time on the field.
All games on April 15
With young stars like Frank Cange and Jami Kouba, Lindbergh’s track team looks primed for sustained success.
With three sophomores, five freshmen and two coaches coaching high school soccer for the first time, the sky’s the limit for the 2008 Lindbergh soccer team.
VELOCITY FC 95
Liberty started the week of play by losing to Bellevue 12-3 on April 8. The Patriots (7-3, 6-2) took an early lead in the top of the first inning, but gave it up in the bottom of the inning. Bellevue (4-7, 3-5) then went up 9-1 after four innings.
Pesky, irksome, or downright frustrataing. You can call the Liberty slapping Patriots whatever you want because once they hit the field, they won’t slow down enough to hear you. The Liberty softball team is using slapping, speed and small-ball to have a big season in 2008.
ADVANCED FLY-CASTING CLASS
Tyee scored a late goal to beat Renton 1-0 on April 4. Frank Martinez scored the goal and was assisted by Mostafa Hedayat. Jose Rivera recorded the shutout for the Totems (1-5, 1-5).
The Renton High track teams have grown accustomed to winning. The boys team has won seven consecutive league titles, the girls team has been nearly as dominant recently, and both are off to a 3-0 start in 2008.
