Although it was senior night Tuesday, a pair of sophomores stole the show for the host Issaquah High School girls swimming team. Kayla Flaten and Stacy Maier each won two events and swam on two victorious relays as the Eagles cruised past Woodinville 120-66 in a 4A KingCo Conference meet.
Flaten won the 200-yard freestyle in a state-qualifying time of 1:59.35 and captured the 100 butterfly in a district-qualifying time of 1:02.22. She just missed a state-qualifying time in the event.
Maier had district-qualifying times in winning the 50 freestyle in 25.24 and the 500 freestyle in 5:26.79.
Flaten and Maier swam on Issaquah’s winning 200 freestyle relay, which had a state-qualifying time of 1:43.88. They also swam on the Eagles’ winning 400 freestyle, which finished first in 3:48.39.
Kellie Langan, another sophomore, finished first in the 100 breaststroke in 1:17.32.
Seniors Kelly Herman, Marit Borth and Jamie Elderkin had something to celebrate about, too.
Herman won the 200 individual medley in 2:31.25. Borth and Herman also swam on the two winning relays.
Elderkin took first place in the diving with 187.95 points.
Skyline edges Issaquah in soccer thriller
Michelle Bretl’s unassisted goal at the 52nd minute enabled the unbeaten Skyline High School girls soccer team to edge host Issaquah 2-1 Tuesday in a 4A KingCo Conference battle.
It was a typical Skyline-Issaquah contest, which went down to the wire again. Last year Skyline defeated Issaquah in the 4A state championship game.
The Spartans, 8-0 in league and 13-0 overall, moved a step closer to clinching the league’s regular-season title. Skyline can win the title outright Oct. 21 at Woodinville.
Madi Barney, assisted by Bretl, put the Spartans on top just one minute into the game. Bretl’s goal put Skyline up 2-0.
Issaquah got on the scoreboard at the 78th minute when Audrey Thomas scored an unassisted goal. The Eagles became just the second team this season to score on Skyline.
The loss for Issaquah ended the Eagles’ hopes of winning the regular-season league title. Issaquah, 6-2-1 in league, completes its league schedule Thursday at Garfield.
Issaquah and Eastlake are tied for second place in the league standings. Eastlake, 6-1-1, defeated Woodinville 3-1 Tuesday.

Liberty boosted its league-leading record to 9-0-2.
