Salmon Days Delay in hatchery project won’t affect Issaquah celebration BY LINDA BALL LBALL@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM
A delay in construction of the upper intake for the Issaquah salmon hatchery will not jeopardize Salmon Days, which will be held the first weekend of October as usual. Jane Kuechle, executive director of Friends of the Issaquah Salmon Hatchery, said water is being diverted around the construction area into a large culvert. This limits the amount of water in the hatchery, but she said the fish are already coming back, and can get as far as the hatchery without any problems. Hatchery workers will have to gather up some of the fish, which will then be hauled by a water truck to the upper part of the creek, beyond the hatchery. Brodie Antipa, operations

THERE FOR ALL CHILDREN Eastside Baby Corner works to give parents what they need for their children BY LINDA BALL LBALL@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM
Seven days a week, 50 weeks a year there is a continuous cycle of intake and outflow at Issaquah's Eastside Baby Corner. The nonprofit
takes in and gives out everything a child needs from birth to 12-years-old. "Our job is to remove barriers that allows parents to get back on their feet," said Helen Banks Routon, director of development and community relations for the nonprofit organization. Every Thursday morning, more than 50 groups that help parents and kids arrive to pick up customized orders for families in need. Eastside Baby Corner doesn't work directly with families. Rather it works with providers SEE BABIES, 8

Klahanie group wants more time to consider zoning Group also wants vote on community council on ballot BY LINDA BALL LBALL@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM
A new group called Klahanie Choice made its first appearance at Tuesday's Issaquah City Council meeting to call for more time to review zoning suggested by the council for the potential annexation area. In a letter from the group's attorney, Rick Amamburu, the group said notice was given only two business days before Tuesday's public hearing, which came on the heels of Labor Day weekend. Klahanie resident Kirsten O'Malley said the zoning the council is proposing is 20 percent denser than King County. The council's bill states that it has been the city's practice to apply city zoning to property in annexation areas that is the same as, or comparable with, King County zoning of the property prior to annexation. Klahanie Choice is asking the council to delay its hearing with the King County Boundary Review Board, scheduled for Sept. 18, until after the next public hear-
ing, which is scheduled for Oct. 7, so interested parties have the opportunity to review the zoning. The pre-annexation zoning map shows most of the residential area in the PAA as single-family-small-lot (SF-S/L) zone which allows 7.26 units to an acre, which increases the density by 20 percent. Single-family-suburban, allows 4.5 units per acre, which Amamburu says is more consistent with the existing community.
Tom Harman who lives in the Klahanie PAA said the community was a master planned community, designed to have four units per acre. He also expressed concern for Queen's Bog, a "world-class wetland," which he said is a very sensitive environmental area. Klahanie Choice also would like the council to put on the ballot a provision for the formation of a community municipal corporation, or a community council. Amamburu said such groups are authorized by state statute. Presently there is a community council in East Bellevue and one in Kirkland called Houghton Community Council, which is named after the area that annexed into Kirkland. "They are a land-use body," Amamburu said. "If one is formed it would have the authority to approve or disapprove subdivisions in the Klahanie PAA." Every four years the Klahanie PAA residents would have the option of discontinuing a community council, but it is a natural location for such a group, Amamburu said, because the development is a master planned community and a community council would allow the residents to maintain local authority over land use matters that are important to them.

A good time at the opening of Issaquahâ€™s new Confluence Park Over 500 hot dogs were devoured at the opening of Issaquahâ€™s newest park, for now called the Confluence Park on Wedneday, Aug. 28. East Fork Issaquah Creek flows into Issaquah Creek on this 15.5 acre jewel, set right in downtown Issaquah off Rainier Boulevard. The park is intended as a place for quiet activity. Two older homes on the property eventually will be restored for classrooms. The park also includes a p-patch and a new picnic shelter designed to look exactly like a barn that once graced the property. It took 20 years for the city to acquire four contiguous parcels to create the park. Photos by William Shaw, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter
CERT class set in Sammamish
Sammamish will hold a CERT class beginning Sept. 10 for members of a neighborhood or workplace who want to be better prepared for the hazards that threaten their communities. CERT programs were developed to assist communities in taking care of themselves in the aftermath of a major disaster when first responders are overwhelmed or unable to respond because of communication or transportation difficulties. However, as the CERT concept has taken hold across the country, graduates have proven themselves to be an active and vital part of their communities' preparedness and response capability. The class will be held at 6:30 p.m. each week on Tuesday nights through Nov. 5 at Fire Station No. 82, 1851 228th Ave. NE. Each class is two and one-half hours. Fee for class is $35.

Klahanie shouldn’t get special treatment
group in Klahanie has asked the Issaquah City Council to let them vote on forming a community council when the area votes on annexing to the city next year. It’s a bad idea and the council should say “no.” Residential areas that have a community council enjoy special privileges not given to other residents in a city. Specifically, they have the ability to veto zoning changes in their area. The Klahanie concern stated at Tuesday’s City Council meeting is that the zoning there now that allows 4.5 units an acre, would be included in a zoning classification that allows 7.26 units an acre. Klahanie has a long history as a master planned community and a desirable place to live. But just because the county zone allows for a particular zoning doesn’t mean that an area will morph into more density. What should be the council’s guiding philosophy is that everyone should be treated equally. We think Klahanie is a special place to live, just as are the other neighborhoods of Issaquah.
AN EASY WAY TO HELP The Eastside Baby Corner is having its annual Pants Party on Sept. 7. It’s a worthy effort that all families should support. The organization provides the things that low-income families need for their kids from birth to age 12. While that includes diapers, formula and porta-cribs, it also includes the things needed for older kids – like pants. So, gather up those good clothing items that didn’t sell at a recent garage sale, dig through the closet for things your kids have outgrown, and bring them to Eastside Baby Corner from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday. You’ll get to enjoy some food and fun – and know that you’re making a real difference to families in our community. Eastside Baby Corner is located at 1510 NW Maple St. – Craig Groshart, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter ISSAQUAH | SAMMAMISH

Seahawks bandwagon only one way
or most sports fans there are few things more irksome than bandwagon jumpers. Whether it is hopping on with the shiniest college football team from half a country away, or pledging allegiance to a professional team because of a superstar player or enticing color scheme, marketing and broadcasting have created a sports world where fandom is fluid. And when it comes to our Seahawks, not only one of the trendy picks to make a run to Josh Suman Super Bowl XLVII at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey but also the team that has more than any other come to define the collective sports passion in Seattle, the bandwagon's capacity is being pushed to its limits. From the casual fan getting in the spirit a little earlier than usual to the die-hard who hasn't taken a day off from following the Hawks since the season ended so miserably in the Georgia Dome in January, the excitement toward the franchise has been palpable. But be warned, newcomers, true fans know the ticket onto the Seahawks' express is good for one-way only use. Once you become part of the 12th Man, leaving means forever. Of course, it is impossible to tell
REPORTER’S NOTEBOOK another individual how they feel about a team. Some fans believe the only mission of those in the stands is to unabashedly cheer at every turn, not taking into account the machinations and behindthe-scenes dealings that help shape the on-field product. Others come from the opposite side of the spectrum, viewing themselves as a realtime mirror for the organization to view itself and its shortcomings (usually yelling something like, "I paid for my seat, I can say whatever I want!"). But regardless of how one views the place of the fan within the framework of the game, one thing is not up for debate: at one point, every fan was new. Not all of us are handed fandom as a birthright from an obsessed loved one, destining us for a lifetime of emotional peaks and valleys as our stomachs turn on last-second field goals and critical red zone stops. Most people who come to enjoy a sport or a specific team or individual are introduced to them later, and make a conscious decision to become a fan. But once that decision is made, it cannot be so easily undone. More times than I can remember during the spring and summer, I
have found myself transfixed on the television as the Mariners frittered away another lead, or were unable to muster offensive output at a decisive point in the game. But regardless of the knowledge that they are not a contender for the playoffs and never were in 2013, the emotions come out. Anger when they play poorly, frustration when things break bad, excitement and hope during even the most muted of winning streaks. But once upon a time, I was nothing more than a bandwagon fan. In the summer of 1995, it was the Atlanta Braves who tugged my heartstrings come October. I followed my former hometown team as much as I could from the Pacific Northwest, even as I watched the Mariners come into their own with a group we now know included no fewer than two future Hall of Famers and a defining season for the franchise. It was also the season that made my Mariners' fandom forever. The general rule is a simple one for me when it comes to bandwagon fans: you can only get as excited during the good times as you do upset during the bad. That's why those of us who have been disappointed for as long as we can remember can't wait for 2013 to begin. Staff writer Josh Suman can be reached at 425-453-5045 or firstname.lastname@example.org

manager for the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Region No. 4 hatcheries, said it’s a tricky project. “Anytime you’re diverting water, it’s complicated,” Antipa said. He said bank restoration takes time, but echoed Kuechle, assuring that the delay in the project will not hamper Salmon Days. He said the project should be completed in late October. A private landowner whose property has Issaquah Creek running through it has given Fish and Wildlife permission to have the fish trucked to his property. The project, which includes replacing the dam upstream of the hatchery, is necessary because the dam is old, dating back to 1937. Fish often could not make it past the dam. As the bottom of the dam began to erode, a cement shelf was built, but when the water is low in the fall, many fish would just flop on the slab and die before they could spawn. It is being replaced with a natural fish ladder made of a series of rock weirs that are being installed in the creek. The $4 million project, approved by the Legislature this year, will make it easier for fish to make it further upstream to spawn. Staff writer Linda Ball can be reached at 425-391-0363, ext. 5052.

Issaquah school board approves budget BY LINDA BALL LBALL@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM
The Issaquah School District’s 2013-2014 budget got a boost of $3.1 million from the state as a result of the McCleary decision, which forced the state to live up to its constitutional duty to provide a basic public education to all children in Washington. State revenue will now comprise 6 percent of the district’s operating revenue, an increase of 1 percent over last year. The board approved the budget Aug. 28 which included an additional $1.9 million in local levy revenue over the prior year due to enrollment growth. Revenue expected for the district’s general fund is $180 million, with expenditures of $183 million. The district expects an increase of 260
full-time students in the academic year. The district must maintain an unrestricted reserve fund of 3 to 5 percent of the general fund budget and maintain sufficient reserves for start-up operating costs for new schools. The board-designated emergency reserve fund is limited to $1 million for emergency capital equipment or facility repair/replacement needs, or other unforeseen liabilities or expenses. The budget also states that the superintendent will not allow corporate assets to be unprotected, inadequately maintained, or unnecessarily risked. Approximately 34.5 percent of the district’s funding comes from a maintenance and operations levy. A replacement levy for the levy that is expiring will appear on the Feb. 11, 2014 ballot.

school districts and various service organizations. The providers let them know what a family needs, and Eastside Baby Corner puts the orders together. Then the cycle begins again as volunteers sort through donated items and place the new or gently used items in various bins – clothing, toys, shoes or hard goods. Clothing is separated by size and gender. While many items are donated by the public, Eastside Baby Corner does purchase food, formula, diapers, car seats, socks, underwear and porta-cribs because they are things that are absolutely needed for a new baby coming home for the first time. Formula for babies is a must, and at $16 for a can of Similac that lasts three days, the cost adds up fast, she said. Diapers are the biggest need. Eastside Baby Corner has increased its distribution of diapers more than 50 percent from the same time period, January to August, over last year. Food stamps or WIC (Women, Infants and Children Food and Nutrition Service) cannot be used for diapers. EBC also assembles and distributes about
HOW TO HELP Bring new or gently used kid’s pants to Eastside Baby Corner’s 4th Annual Pants Party from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7. The goal is to collect 2,500 pairs of pants for kids in need. Enjoy fun, food, games and tours of the facility. Eastside Baby Corner is located at 1510 NW Maple St., Issaquah. For more information visit babycorner. org or call 425-865-0234 ext. 705.
Diapers are the biggest need for families. Huggies is providing two million diapers over the next two years to Side by Side Northwest, a collaboration of Eastide Baby Corner and West Side Baby in White Center. LINDA BALL, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter 800 layette sets a year, plus cases of food and formula are distributed to 11 different food banks from Issaquah to Carnation. There are about 50 "core" volunteers who come in on a weekly basis, along with others who help out less often.There are countless jobs for the volunteers to take care of. Volunteer Ali Haywood, who has an 18-month-old son, recently spent hours putting together backpacks with school supplies. Retired engineers and construction workers spend time repairing donated bicycles, strollers and car seats to make sure they are safe. New blankets and quilts are handmade by organizations such as the Issaquah Quilters, Eastside crafters, Stitches from the Heart, the Needle Brigade and Girl Scouts. The organization never has enough pants, especially for boys. Sizes 5 and up are welcome, but boys pants size 10 to 14 are especially needed.
"We run a permanent shortage of clothes for boys," Banks Routon said. "Boys are hard on clothes." Then there are toys that come in and need a little repair. Girls can be rough on dolls, ratting their hair, marking them up with sharpies so volunteers refurbish the dolls, washing and fixing the hair and cleaning them up, putting new clothes on them then wrapping them in cellophane so they look brand new. Brand new toys that are donated are set aside for birthday presents for children who otherwise would not have anything for their birthday. Banks Routon said sometimes they are just supplementing families, where both parents work, but are paid minimum wage, or one has lost a job. "A car breaking down, a death in the family or health issues can put a family right on the edge," she said.
The Healthy Start Parent Mentor Program, a service of Youth Eastside Services, is looking for volunteers interested in guiding young parents toward positive, healthy relationships with their young children. Program volunteers act as mentors, providing first-time young parents them with friendship, support and information that can assist in making healthy choices for themselves and their children. Mentors refer their Healthy Start participant to outside agencies for additional support and encourage steps towards family independence. After screening and training, volunteers will be matched one-to-one with a parent under the age of 23 who is pregnant or parenting an infant. Each mentor spends three to six hours per month, for a minimum of one year, supporting the needs of the family and completing paperwork required for funding. Mentors must be non-judgmental, have excellent communications skills, and be organized. They need to have some flexibility in their schedule and time to form a new, meaningful relationship. Mentors should understand that they will most often have to take the lead in planning activities. Mentors may volunteer in the greater Eastside, Renton, Snoqualmie Valley and North Snohomish County. In addition to English speakers, Spanish speaking volunteers are encouraged to apply. Training will take place at Youth Eastside Services in Crossroads Park in Bellevue in Oct. More information is available by calling Karen Wherlock at 425-586-2320 or via email at KarenW@YouthEastsideServices. org.

Xanadu to open No recreational pot in Issaquah until March 2014 at Village Theatre BY LINDA BALL LBALL@ISSAQUAHREPORTER.COM
Even though I-502 passed in the November election, allowing adults to possess one-ounce of marijuana for their personal use, the Issaquah City Council has decided to enforce a six-month moratorium on licensing producers, processors or retailers in the city. The moratoria will expire March 3, 2014. The State Liquor Control Board will be the body to implement and enforce the provisions of I-502 and is on track to meet its Dec. 1, 2013 deadline. Taxes from the sale of recreational marijuana will be used for public health programs and youth anti-drug programs. Any marijuana facility must be 1,000-feet from schools,

Learn things. Things people will pay you for. College credits in all areas, including Computer Science and Technology.
Real life husband and wife Dane Stokinger (Sonny Malone) and Jessica Skerritt (Kira/Clio) will perform together at the Village Theatre in the spirited tongue-incheek musical comedy based on the 1980 film of the same name, Xanadu. Stokinger and Skerritt met in 2007 on Village Theatre’s stage playing Elvis and Elvis’ girlfriend in Million Dollar Quartet. This fall they will strap on their skates for this hilarious musical-on-wheels. Ancient mythology collides with the world of disco as the Greek muse Kira descends from Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California. Love, jealousy and synthesizer music abound as Kira inspires struggling artist Sonny to achieve the greatest artistic creation of his life — the world’s first roller-disco. The musical score includes the hits, “I’m Alive,” “Suddenly” and “Magic” originated by the British rock group Electric Light Orchestra (ELO). The original 1980 film version starring Hollywood heavyweights Olivia Newton John and Gene Kelly was a surprise "flop" while the 2007 Broadway musical version was a surprise smash. Xanadu the musical ran on Broadway for over 500 performances and opened with a cast that included Seattle’s Cheyenne Jackson. The musical was nominated for multiple Tony awards and received both an Outer Critics Circle Award as well as a Drama Desk award. “This show is about the power of love. Well, it’s about the power of love and the power of great rock classics and the awesomeness of roller disco. All of us are working at amping up the wit, the hilarity and the dance moves," said director David Ira Goldstein.

Council member Josh Schaer asked why have a sixmonth moratorium when the liquor control board should have rules in place by Dec. 1. "The schedule I classification comes out of ignorance and lack of science," Schaer said. But he supported the moratorium along with the rest of the council to allow the city time to flesh out the law. However, he said that once the moratorium expires, the council should follow the law and allow peopleto become licensed. There was no public comment on the issue.

Grandparent’s Day BUSINESS SPOTLIGHT
Sunday, Sept 8th is National Grandparent’s Day
The 2013 grandparent-grandchild knowledge summit September 8 is National Grandparents’ Day, a time to be thankful for the important role grandmothers and grandfathers play in the family structure. Your children might know their grandparents mostly as babysitters or, perhaps, as distant figures who live quietly. They might not know that Gran and Gramps or Oma and Opa or Nana and Nonny are wicked story tellers or former whizzes at cards! Why not arrange a knowledge summit for Grandparents’ Day where these talents can be appreciated and passed on for posterity. Propose different categories and invite grandparents and grandchildren to come together for a grand day of fun and a friendly meal. You might want to leave time for crafts, sports, cooking, and storytelling. Invite grandparents to share a long-lost talent or trick they’ve kept hidden up their sleeve. Was Grammy known for her graceful swan dive in her younger days? Maybe a trip to the pool will result in a demonstration. Was Grampa a ferocious softball pitcher? Head out to the ball diamond together. Was he the best small motor mechanic
on the block? Dress your child in play clothes and let him or her help Grandad tune up the lawnmower motor. Even better, suggest a “workshop” on old-fashioned play. Many of the common school yard games from as few as 20 years ago have been lost to time. Invite Gran to teach the kids some old skipping or clapping songs, ball games, and hopscotch variations. However you all choose to spend the day together, the focus is on Grandmother and Grandfather and on creating a way for their skills and knowledge to shine.
Happy Grandparent’s Day!

Issaquah house featured on modern home tour An Issaquah house will be featured on a tour of modern homes in and around the Seattle area on Sept. 7. Tour organizers, Austin, Texasbased Modern Home Tours, say the homes features "cutting-edge contemporary design that takes advantage of the stunning landscape." In addition to the Issaquah home, seven other homes are located in Bellevue, Seattle and Bainbridge Island. The tour will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is self-directed. Advance tickets are on sale through Friday, Sept. 6 at 8 p.m. for $30 each. Tickets purchased after that time must be purchased at any of the tour homes beginning at 11 a.m. on Sept. 7 for $40 each. Children 12 and under are free. The mid-century modern, elegantly simple Issaquah home on Lake Sammamish was rescued from entropy and rebuilt as a better version of its former self. Built in 1963, this was a custom home that remained virtually untouched until it was transferred to the current owners. When this project began in 2011, it was deeply in need of mold remediation, structural/egress/energy upgrades, and a design approach that required a close collaboration between owner, architect, and contractor in a constant cost-benefit exercise to stay within budget. The historic value of the mid-century era design – the simplicity and expression of the post-and-beam construction, and gesture of volumes stepping down toward the water – was to be preserved. The renovation would connect

the home’s interior to the waterfront and emphasize the transparency and modularity of the original design. The end result would need to be done with precision and style in homage to the original design, and personalized for the new family of four.
As demolition uncovered significant structural deterioration, the building was reduced to framing and rebuilt with reinforced shear walls, a new moment frame, and a highperformance building envelope. Key decorative elements from the original construction were preserved, including the entry door, bell-shaped fireplace, stair railings, and shoji screens that separate the master bedroom from the double-height living space. Finishes were selected to last another 50 years (terrazzo flooring, walnut casework), and the design was carried out with precision.

Crossfire boys win title in Snohomish
Can Spartans climb back to top of state in Class 4A?
The Crossfire boys U11 team won the Snohomish United Bigfoot Tournament recently, taking the championship game 4-1 over Seattle United Tango. The team, which is coached by Barry O’Melia, is made up of players from Sammamish, Redmond, Kirkland and Woodinville. Tristan Mirailh, Fischer Dahl and Max Verboort are all from Sammamish. The Crossfire U11 team: Assistant coach Raj Mann, assistant coach Brian Mueller, Nick Hansen, Braden Hoare, Brooks Frankel, Mason Mueller, Luca Andonian, Aanyk Mann, Max Verboort, head coach Barry O’Melia; Front row: Garrett Price, Casey Lenon-Jones, Tyler Ferry, Tristan Mirailh, Bridger Branum, Fischer Dahl, not pictured Reece Campbell
Skyline made it back-to-back 4A state titles with a 1-0 win over rival Issaquah in the championship game last year, and will look to the experience of 17 returning full-time varsity players to go after the state’s first ever threepeat in Class 4A this season. “One thing that helped us be successful in the past is each year, we recognized it isn’t about what the previous team has done,” head coach Don Braman said. “We’re a long way from where we want to be.” Goalkeepers Emily Baril, Jaden Chew and Sydney Martinez all return to the net after a stellar playoff run last year that saw the Spartans hold opponents scoreless in four state tournament wins and Braman said are a decided area of strength for the twotime defending champs. “We’re lucky, with three goalkeepers with varsity experience,” he said. “They are good players who challenge each other and know that on any given day, they are going to be pushed to compete for minutes.” While the Spartans did capture the state’s top crown last year, the road was not without bumps, most notably a loss to Redmond in the conference title game. Non-conference games
Skyline soccer coach Don Braman looks on as his team participates in a scrimmage during practice. The Spartans have won the past two state titles and return a wealth of experience from 2012. JOSH SUMAN, Issaquah & Sammamish Reporter with a host of perennial contenders from Washington along with Tualatin, Ore. will provide plenty of tests for Skyline, which knows its place among the hunted after winning four of the last five 4A state championships.
How do Eagles reload? The final hurdle for the Spartans on the road to last year’s state title was a familiar foe in Issaquah, a team that now has a pair runner-up finishes at state at the hands of their Plateau rivals. Coach Tom Bunnell’s squad dropped only three games during all of last season and loses two-time State Player of the Year Audrey Thomas to graduation, but will return fellow offensive threat and first team All-KingCo selection Rachel Wheeler in 2013.
Does Eastlake run with state’s best once again? The Wolves’ boys were the only local team included in the first coaches
poll of the year in cross country, while the girls checked-in just outside of the top-10. Both will look to take a full squad back to the state meet for the second straight year after top-10 finishes in 2012. Anastasia Kosykh, now a senior, leads the Eastlake girls along with Olivia Latham after both had top-50 individual finishes at state last year. Issaquah’s Ellie Kosykh Clawson also returns for another season after reaching state. On the boys side, Jordan Oldenburg finished in 27th place for the Wolves last year as a junior and will look to improve upon last year’s 10th place showing. SEE QUESTIONS, 14

Crusaders find new boys lacrosse coach
Prep season kicks off BY JOSH SUMAN
BY JOSH SUMAN
The 2013 prep football season kicks off tonight at fields around the state and the Reporter has a look at the first challenges facing local teams. Skyline begins defense of its backto-back 4A state titles Saturday against Bellevue at renovated Husky Stadium in the finale of the Emerald City Kickoff Classic at 7 p.m. The two did not meet last year as Skyline made another run to the 4A state championship and last played in 2011, a 31-17 Bellevue win at Skyline. The Spartans were also the last team to hand Bellevue a defeat, winning 28-21 in 2010. Issaquah opens against 3A Interlake as it looks to get back to the 4A state tournament behind senior running back and defensive back Jack Gellatly. The Eagles beat the Saints 2413 in last year’s season opener. Eastlake gets things rolling at home against 3A Lakes. New head coach Don Bartel will get his first live look at the Wolves, who endured a difficult 2012 campaign to
Eastside Catholic named a new boys lacrosse coach for the 2014 season, as Luke Christiansen will take over for Lewis Ratcliff, a professional player who spent one year at the helm. Christiansen comes to the Crusaders from Camden Military Academy in South Carolina, and has also coached at the collegiate level as the defensive coordinator of Utah State University. “We’re thrilled to bring Coach Christiansen into the Eastside Catholic family; we know he will continue to build on the great legacy and success of the Eastside Catholic lacrosse program,” said Athletic Director Jeremy Thielbahr said in a statement. “His character, integrity and core values will provide exemplary leadership for our boys lacrosse team and all Eastside Catholic students.” Christiansen will take over a program that reached the state title game in 2012, a first for the program, and made it back to the postseason in 2013 under Ratcliff, reaching the state semi-finals before again losing to eventual champion Bellevue. “Eastside Catholic is a destination job, and I am thrilled to be joining the school,” Christiansen said in a statement. “Very few programs can match the school support, the community involvement and the quality student athletes present at EC. It’s a rare opportunity to develop a program centered on the core values taught at Eastside Catholic. I’m excited to get to work.”

Who makes biggest waves in pool? Skyline and Issaquah each finished in the top-10 at the state meet last season and return a host of swimmers looking to get back to the podium in 2013. Kristaley Umezawa and Stephanie Munoz return to
the pool after helping Skyline to the 200 yard medley relay title at state last year, as does Issaquah’s Gabrielle Gevers, who made state appearances in three events last year as a junior. A pair of divers who finished among the state’s best also return in Kaela Call and Chris Torrente.
Who goes lowest on course? Eastlake provided yet another first in its elite golf pedigree in the spring, winning the 4A state title as a team behind individual runner-up Li Wang. The Wolves welcome back a host of talent this fall despite losing a trio of state placers in Wang, Josh Grace and Will Sharp. Spencer Weiss, who was eighth at state, will be among the top contenders for a title this season, along with Skyline’s Brian Mogg.
