Lifetime impact: Q&A with Mount Si volleyball's big hitter Lindsay Carr
Nov 09 2012, 2:38 PM
Mount Si's powerful outside hitter Lindsay Carr has been a force for the team. Carr, who broke the school's single-match kill record against Eastside Catholic with 37 on Nov. 1, is only a junior.
The six-foot-two-inch Carr has a nine-foot-11-inch jump, built through lots of continuing strength training. She plays club volleyball for Sudden Impact of Bellevue, and comes later to this game than you might expect—eighth grade.
Athleticism and vision: Mount Si football's Trent Riley on the push to state
Nov 09 2012, 2:40 PM
Watch Trent Riley at work. The cool-handed catches, the athletic juking and dodging past opposition defenders, the leap into the end zone, the celebratory moves after a touchdown—they're all signs of a player who is reaching his potential.
That this comes from a player who was out with a fractured knee and missed his junior season makes things that much more interesting.

Quarterfinals, here we are: Mount Si moves deeper into state championships with big Glacier Peak win | Photo gallery
Nov 14 2012, 1:33 PM
Mount Si football had a huge win Friday, Nov. 9, against Glacier Peak in the first round of state playoffs.
Coming in, the Grizzlies held a 9-1 record, the same as Mount Si. They also held a Wesco league title. That didn't matter to Mount Si, as the Wildcats pushed to a 52-19 victory at Snohomish, with impressive play on all sides by the Wildcat offense, defense and kicking divisions.
The game began with a defensive duel punctuated by field goals in the first quarter. Van Winkle, Mount Si's University of Washington-bound kicker, made a 22-yard field goal (And, as he usually does, Van Winkle went on to score seven points after touchdowns as a special-teams powerhouse). Glacier Peak's kicker Spencer Petit answered back with a 32-yard field goal.
