SportsBothell Cougars humble Skyline Spartans, 56-0
If there were any doubts about Bothell’s ability to win a big football game on the road, the Cougars destroyed those theories in the opening minute of their Oct. 17 game at Skyline High School.
Bothell, the top-ranked team in Class 4A, scored on its first two plays from scrimmage and went on to thoroughly dominate the Skyline Spartans, 56-0, clinching the KingCo Conference title in the process.
“We couldn’t ask for anything better — score on the first play, score on the second play of offense,” said senior Sam McPherson, the Cougars’ star running back and defensive back.
SchoolsTiger Mountain closure pushed back a year
The Issaquah School Board will deviate slightly from the district superintendent’s plan to close Tiger Mountain Community High School after the 2014-15 school year.
In a 5-0 vote Oct. 22, the board chose to approve the closure a year later, at the end of the 2015-16 school year. Board members said delaying the closure for a year, and then opening a new alternative school at the start of the 2016-17 year, will remove any gaps in alternative education for Issaquah School District students.
Several parents and Tiger Mountain students spoke to the board, similar to a series of meetings and public hearings that began taking place in February. That’s when Superintendent Ron Thiele first announced a plan to close Tiger Mountain at the end of the 2014-15 year.
More information on the board meeting and the future of Tiger Mountain will be published Oct. 29.
