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.


The Cedar Park Christian School baseball team accomplished its primary goal of reaching the Class 1A state tournament, but fell in the first round once it got there to Rochester, 11-7, in Anacortes on Saturday.

Cedar Park finished the Emerald City League season in second place with an 8-4 record behind Bellevue Christian.


Sarah Foulkes pitched two complete games, including a five-hit shutout, in addition to going a combined 5-for-8 at the plate as the Cedar Park Christian softball team swept a doubleheader in the 1A Tri-District tournament at the Sprinker Recreation Center in Tacoma on Saturday to clinch a spot in the state tournament for the seventh straight season.

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.

Cedar Park has been a regular in the state tournament, highlighted by a state championship in 2003.
