Bothell High’s miraculous boys soccer postseason run came to an end in the first round of the 4A state tournament. The Cougars fell to Todd Beamer, 3-0, May 13 at Sunset Chev Stadium in Sumner.
Bothell’s goal this season was just to make the Kingco tournament for the first time since 2002, and that even looked like a longshot halfway through the season. But Bothell finished the regular season 5-5-0, highlighted by a 4-2 win against Kingco champion Juanita April 22 to sneak in as the sixth and final seed to the playoffs.
But the journey was just beginning, as Bothell beat heavily favored Redmond, 2-0, came back to avenge a 3-0 loss to Lake Washington a week earlier by beating them by the same 3-0 score, and then upset state-semifinalist Eastlake, 1-0, to make the state tournament.

After slugging Friday Harbor, 11-1, on Thursday, Cedar Park defeated Orting, 6-1, and Chimacum, 2-0, on Saturday. Against Orting, Foulkes thew a four hitter and Emilie Wagler went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored.
In the nightcap against Chimacum, Foulkes threw a five-hit shutout and went 3-for-4 at the plate and was just a home run short of the cycle. Anna Lowery also went 2-for-3 for the Eagles, who improved to 17-6 on the season.
