Issaquah’s Fab 14 accept scholarships

April 21, 2015

Coaches and players on opposing basketball teams knew how good Ty Gibson was, but the Issaquah High School senior might not have convinced any colleges of his talents until a virtuoso performance at the state tournament in March.

Over the course of three games, Gibson set a new tourney scoring record with 87 points. His last two games in an Issaquah uniform were superstar material — a career-high 42 points against Moses Lake, and 32 more against Kentwood as the Eagles clinched the fourth-place trophy.

Issaquah girls win state lacrosse title in a thriller

May 20, 2014

Katie Bucy got a second chance and made the most of it, scoring the game winner May 16 with under a minute remaining to give Issaquah an 11-10 victory over Lake Sammamish and its first Washington high school girls state lacrosse championship.

Bucy, a Skyline High School senior who will play next year at Missouri’s Lindenwood University, delivered the winner on a free-position shot after a goal just seconds earlier was disallowed on a shooting-space violation.

“That’s the biggest goal ever,” Bucy said while celebrating with teammates from Skyline, Issaquah and Liberty high schools. “It was hit or miss, and this one was a hit.”

The shot beat Lake Sammamish goaltender and Eastlake freshman Kristene Nickel low and to the left, opposite of where she wanted to go with the shot.

“Seattle Children’s was very appreciative and they even wrote an article about Issaquah High School’s donation in the magazine they publish,” junior Suzy Emerson, Associated Student Body representative, said.
