Endeavour Elementary School families took a walk on the wild side at this year’s school walkathon May 15.

The event raised about $19,000 for the school’s PTSA, but was more than a fundraiser, students and parents said. 

“It is important to turn out for it, because it shows how much the kids appreciate each other and how much the kids appreciate everything in the school,” said Kayleigh Ramos, a third-grader who walked 12 laps. Read more

The Skyline High School girls track team used an old formula again May 23 to capture the 4A Sea-King District championship — the relays.

Skyline won two relays, and that helped spark the Spartans to a fifth district title at the Southwest Athletic Complex in Seattle.

Skyline finished with 80.5 points to beat out Inglemoor and rival Issaquah. Inglemoor finished second with 73 points and Issaquah was third with 71.

The Skyline boys team, led by Kasen Williams, had a strong showing, too. The Spartans finished second with 73 points, just getting edged by Inglemoor, which had 75.5 points.

In the 3A District meet, also held at Southwest Athletic Complex, the Liberty boys team finished fourth but had two district champions.

Now, local athletes hone their skills for the state meet, which runs May 28-30 at Mount Tahoma High in Tacoma. This will be the first time in seven years the 3A and 4A championships will be on the west side of the state instead of in Pasco. Read more

Eastside Fishing Report

Dallas Cross

Dallas Cross

The Eastside, lowland lakes trout season opened on the last weekend in April and because of cool weather has seen fewer fishermen than in past years.

This is good news, because the lakes have been well-stocked and, with continuing plants, should offer excellent fishing. Consequently, Rattlesnake, Pine and Beaver lakes have had lower than usual fishing pressure. Those who did fish them had good success, which should continue into the summer. Large triploid rainbow trout are still there to be caught. The limit is five trout and all caught with bait must be kept. Read more
