Sullivan, who graduated from Skyline High School last week, will play NCAA Division I women’s soccer this fall at Colorado College.

From history lessons to soccer, Issaquah will have many opportunities for those wanting to celebrate America this Fourth of July.
While the events will largely resemble last year’s, organizers hope the tried-and-true celebrations will offer the same level of community involvement and entertainment. Both the Down Home 4th of July and Heritage Day will take place in downtown.
The Swedish Hospital Kids ‘n Pets Parade will kick off the day, beginning at 11 a.m. It will wind its way down Front Street North and East Sunset Way before ending at Veterans’ Memorial Field.
“We will have a lot of the traditional favorites come back,” Issaquah Chamber of Commerce Director of Festivals Robin Kelley said.

The cat was finally let out of the bag June 11, when, in front of family, friends and Seattle Sounders FC goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann, J.K. learned he won a trip to the World Cup in Brazil courtesy of McDonald’s.
