Athletes’ triumphs create community pride

Skyline High School’s football and soccer teams just keep bringing home honors to the Issaquah School District. The Issaquah and Liberty high school teams have also added many awards to the virtual district trophy case.

Skyline girls soccer took first in state for the fourth time in five years. And the Dec. 1 state playoff football game gave Skyline the gridiron title again for the fifth time in eight years. Skyline’s 200-medley relay team won the state swim title last month.

Issaquah is a known winner among 4A KingCo teams. The Eagles came in second, to Skyline, for the state girls soccer championship. This year’s football team reached the playoffs. The school’s wrestlers won the district title in 2011 and sent six wrestlers to state.

Between Skyline and Issaquah, neither is an easy mark.

Issaquah School District soccer teams prep for state

November 6, 2012

The Issaquah School District will be well-represented in this week’s first round of the Class 3A and 4A state girls soccer tournaments, because Liberty, Issaquah and Skyline all made it to this year’s big dances in their respective classes.

Those critical initial clashes begin Nov. 7 for all three squads.

The only smudge on an otherwise perfect 12-0-1 league mark for Liberty was a 3-3 tie with pesky Mount Si in the Patriot kickers’ final league test of the regular season. The Patriots’ only losses overall came at the hands of Skyline (2-1), Issaquah (4-1) and Mercer Island (1-0).

Liberty High School girls soccer team clinches playoff berth

October 30, 2012

Despite recording ties in their last regular season contests of 2012, a couple of local high school girls soccer squads essentially wrapped up titles in their respective KingCo classifications recently, as 4A Skyline went to 9-0-1 in league action after logging a scoreless tie with local nemesis Issaquah.

Issaquah, which may or may not be heading for state action, basically sent big sister on her way to the state tournament with a little reminder that it isn’t the only good team in KingCo 4A, and wait until next year.

Liberty meanwhile sewed up the KingCo 3A hardware, emerging as the clear-cut trophy winner in its division, winding down the regular season with a 12-1-1 league mark, after tying Mount Si, 3-3.
