Ray on her way to state

Mount Si High School’s Lindsey Ray competed at the

Sea-King district gymnastics tournament on Saturday and

walked away with a berth in the state meet.

Ray scored a 7.65 on the bars to receive a 12th-place

finish, enough to qualify for state. Ray has exhibited athletic prowess

all season, scoring personal bests of 8.1 on vault, bars and beam,

and an 8.65 on the floor exercise. The state tournament will be held at

5 p.m. Friday, at the Tacoma Exhibition Hall.

Issaquah rolls over Mount Si

The Issaquah Indians girls’ basketball team took to the

court Saturday afternoon against the Mount Si Wildcats at the

3A KingCo Conference tournament at Bellevue Community

College and never looked back. During an 18-0 run in the first quarter,

the Indians were able to keep the Wildcats from scoring until

less than 90 seconds from the end of the quarter, when freshman

Angela Jones hit a three-point jumper.

Things didn’t get much better for the Wildcats until the

fourth quarter when Mount Si picked up its offense and had an 11-3

run against the Indians, cutting the lead to 48-37. Leading scorer

for Issaquah was Laura Vertatschitsch with 16 points. Mount Si’s

Nicci Landdeck and Moriah Hover had 12 and 14 points, respectively,

for the team.
