Mar 15 2013, 3:14 PM
On Thursday, March 14, the Cedarcrest High School track and field hosted a track jamboree with Bothell and Granite Falls, their first meet of the season.
It was a good meet to get veterans back in the swing of things, and rookies introduced to the high school program, related Red Wolf head coach Bruce McDowell.
Junior Logan Orndorf took first in the 800 and 1,600 meter race. Junior Quinn Radbourne also clocked 2:04 in the 800 meter race, taking second.
Always set goals: Senior runner Luke Driscoll talks Cedarcrest track
Mar 15 2013, 4:51 PM
Track has been an exciting discovery for Luke Driscoll, a Cedarcrest High School senior who just started running last year. His first season began with a 12-second 100-meter dash, and ended with an 11:18 personal record, and a trip to the state track meet.
"I've never been a runner," he says, "but I've always been fast."
This season promises just as much excitement for the sprinter, who plans to run the 400-meter race by the end of the season, and to shave almost a half-second off his 100-meter time.

Getting into high gear: Mount Si track and field athletes ready for a strong season | Photo gallery
Mar 15 2013, 5:02 PM
Jimbo Davis sits, comfortably, on the thick mat, watching as pole vaulters race past, attempting to fly.
"I see if their plant is good, if they swing up fully, a complete 180," says Davis,
Davis is qualified to advise, as he went to state in this event last year. Narrowly missing a spot on the podium, "I'm coming back for revenge," the senior says. Committed to football at the University of Nevada next fall, he wants to enjoy this last semester of Mount Si track and field.
Fellow senior Danielle Curley, who just missed state with a seventh-place finish at Districts last year, is the most experienced vaulter for the girls.
Exciting chances: Clayton Lacher, Christian MacMillan on Cedarcrest baseball
Mar 15 2013, 4:29 PM
They were in eighth grade the last (and first) time Cedarcrest High School's baseball team won a state championship, but seniors Clayton Lacher and Christian MacMillan still light up when talking about that win. They get even more excited thinking about their own chances at state, just a few weeks into the season.
"That would be so cool!" they agree.
Lacher, a first- and third-baseman, just loves baseball, playing all through high school, and most of his life. He also plays football, but, he says, "football is just to get ready for baseball."
Their own time to shine: Experienced Mount Si girls golfers look to go far
Mar 15 2013, 4:58 PM
This is her time.
Last year could have been, but the very focused Mount Si senior Danielle Burns was sidelined for half a season by injury as a junior. She lettered, and ended up playing one-handed in the league tournament last season, missing the cut to districts, amazingly, by 17 strokes.
Already college committed to Methodist University in North Carolina, she'd love to get another shot at state.
"I'm here to play, and I'm here to go as far as I can," Burns said.
Never stopping: Chris Cole on Cedarcrest's new soccer season
Mar 15 2013, 4:48 PM
Life is all about soccer for Cedarcrest junior and soccer team co-captain Chris Cole. Sure, he's played basketball, too, but that phase is over for him.
"I'm done with basketball, so I can focus on soccer," says the mid-fielder and forward, who's played soccer since he was 4 years old, and hopes to play in college.
"It was just one of those things. I started playing with the ball and never stopped."
Cole is looking forward to a non-stop season, too, with such goals as staying undefeated at home, and winning first place in the conference, plus, of course, going to the state championship. They're not really his goals, though.
'Don't take any teams lightly': Mount Si soccer looks to speed as key ingredient
Mar 15 2013, 4:06 PM
Speed will be the reloaded Mount Si boys soccer team's main weapon in its hunt for greatness this spring.
"Everyone that plays attack is lightning quick, and we can use that to our advantage," says senior Alex Censullo.
"We've got the leaders that we need, the role players," says senior keeper Hunter Malberg, who, at practice, stands out as the vocal communicator of the squad.
After last year's heartbreaking season-ender game to Juanita, the lesson for Hunter is "Don't take any teams lightly."
A big group of seniors includes Censullo and Kody Clearman, who were among the top scorers in KingCo as juniors, while current junior Aaron Baumgardner will be a key part of the Wildcat atta
