Skyline pulled into sole possession of first place in the KingCo 4A standings Thursday night, beating rival Issaquah, 2-0.
The unstoppable force that is the Skyline swim team, continued its dominance Tuesday afternoon against Plateau rival Eastlake.
The Spartans improved their dual record to 6-0 beating the Wolves 117-69 at Boehm Pool.
Frustration continued to mount for Issaquah on Friday night.
Four consecutive second-half drives placed the Eagles inside Eastlake’s 30 yard line, and four straight times they were turned away.
Eastlake head coach Gene Dales stood in silence at the 30-yard line Friday night and watched hundreds of black-clad Redmond students swarm their home field — still in disbelief that his Wolves just fell 24-21 to winless Redmond.
It appeared the magic Skyline fans and players have become accustomed to the last two seasons – including a 21-point comeback against O’Dea to win the 2007 3A state championship, and 16-12 come-from-behind victory over Bothell in the 2008 KingCo title game – was going to reappear Friday night.
Like any top performer, Eastside Catholic is always aiming to get better.
That’s why after the state’s top-ranked 3A volleyball team defeated cross-town opponents Eastlake in three games on Monday — 25-18, 25-23, 25-11 — there was no large celebration.
