Issaquah student joins Marquette’s MARDI GRAS program in New York
Anna Fairhart, of Issaquah, a junior studying nursing at Marquette University, traveled to New York City over spring break with the Marquette MARDI GRAS program.
MARDI GRAS, which stands for Making A Real Difference in the Gulf Region and Areas Surrounding, is a student-run organization created in 2006 after Hurricane Katrina devastated the Gulf region.

It was a simple but effective formula that wound up being the difference in Woodinville’s victory over Issaquah in a Feb. 12 girls basketball playoff game.
Senior guards Mandie Hill and Mackenzie Wieburg supply the bulk of Issaquah’s offense, and visiting Woodinville was able to collar them for the vast majority of the teams’ first-round clash in the Class 4A KingCo Conference tournament.

For fans of the jump shot, the first half of Issaquah High School’s Feb. 5 basketball game at Eastlake was a beautiful thing to witness.
The Eagles were on fire from 3-point range, sinking seven shots, and were just as good from other parts of the court, shooting 78 percent overall in the first half. They closed the game on a similar hot streak, and wrapped up a 78-59 victory against the Wolves in Class 4A KingCo Conference girls basketball action.
Issaquah had already sewed up a home game in the first round of the KingCo tournament Feb. 12, but it added a convincing win over an Eastlake squad that has been ranked among the state’s top 10 most of the season.
