For the second straight year, an Issaquah High School tennis player took second at the 4A state championships.

Maseratis, Lamborghinis, Ferraris, Bentleys and a Mitsubishi Evo X were just a few of the pricey cars that were present at Skyline High School’s annual car show earlier this month.

Skyline’s Associated Student Body is in charge of hosting the popular event where Skyline students are allowed to physically touch all of the cars present and vote for their favorite ones. Held during lunch, this is a much loved and well-known tradition for students.

All of the cars were owned by the families of Skyline students, with each individual car costing between $50,000 and $300,000. The less expensive cars were placed near the entrance of the school’s patio while the security-guarded row of Lamborghinis and Ferraris formed an intimidating line near the back.
