It has been a phenomenal fall sports season for all our teams. No matter the records of our teams and the outcomes of individual efforts, every athlete has invested significantly in improving and being a great teammate. I have enjoyed watching practices and cheering for teams at events. If you haven’t been out to a competition or if you want to continuing supporting the teams, you still have time!
Here is the rundown for post-season play:
The team’s final Metro League meet was Friday, Oct. 21. Our runners had great success! The boys team finished 10th overall. The girls finished in 12th place. Our top finishers were Megan K. (5th), Drew K. (23rd), Reese V. (27th), Reggie H. (39th), and Ulee K. (42nd). All five of these athletes will be competing in the district meet which takes places at Lower Woodland Park on Thursday, October 27. Racing begins at 2:30 p.m. Those that qualify for the state meet will head to Sun Willows Golf Course in Pasco on Saturday November 5.

The girls team finished 8th overall which qualifies them for the district tournament in the spring. Liz C., Cailyn C., Vivien C., and Jenny H. will represent Lakeside. The top finishers for Lakeside were Liz C., who placed 4th, and Cailyn C. who finished 6th.
The boys team participated in the Metro League tournament on Tuesday, October 18.

On Friday, Oct. 28, they will play in the Metro League quarterfinals again the winner of the Eastside Catholic/Lincoln match. Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. on Parsons Field. The semifinals and finals will be played at Memorial Stadium and will take place on Tuesday, November 1 and Thursday, November 3.
