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."

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.

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.

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

About a dozen people came nightly, mostly men, but also a few women, including one mom who found a place to stay for her teenage daughter, but needed her own refuge.

The couple that chops together: Timber sports give David and Annette Moses’ life together a sharper focus | Slideshow

Today is the first time that David Moses has jumped onto a springboard since a fateful day last summer. It was hard, but he took the leap in stride. After winning the Stihl Timbersports Series’ Western Qualifyer last spring, Moses’ hopes for a first-place trophy at nationals fell after he tore part of his Achilles tendon at the national championship last June. As he climbed a vertical log, his springboard slipped, dropping Moses. His leg slammed against a metal tree stand. Climbing back up, he found his ankle wouldn’t support him. But he fought on and competed the rest of the day. That meant last-place finishes in springboard, stock saw and the underhand chop. One legged, he finished ninth out of 10 competitors. “I stayed in it,” he said. “I could have been a finalist, easily. I did all that hard work, and then it ended.”
