Cascade tennis team finishes with flourish

Herald staff

Cascade boys tennis coach Bob Martin saw the Oct. 23 Western Conference 4A crossover meet with Edmonds-Woodway as an opportunity.

Since only a handful of his players were moving on to the district tournament, Martin wanted this meet to be somewhat of a last hurrah. In the four singles positions, Martin chose to play only seniors. Nevermind that those weren’t the usual positions for David Dawson, Joshua Aljets, Dan Johnson and Rob Bovey. Bovey went on to win his match 6-2, 2-6, 6-2.

The doubles matches were no exception to Martin’s reorganizing. The three doubles teams, who have played only exhibitions this season, hit the court for their varsity debut. The teams of Russ Millar and Chad Schroeder, Tommy Leon and Johnny Huynh and Scott Williams and Nate Escalona all won their respective matches to help Cascade win the meet 4-3 and capture fifth place.

  • Murphy girls wrap up surprising soccer season: The Archbishop Murphy girls soccer team, thought to be in a rebuilding year after graduating eight starters, instead produced another dominating season, said coach Pat Jack. The Wildcats were undefeated (6-0) in Northwest A League play and were 12-2-1 overall. They out-scored opponents 36-2.

    Jack said senior sweeper Kristi Turner led the defense, while senior forward Lora Dahmen, injured during the preseason, came back to score a goal in the Wildcats’ final game. Junior Danielle Bair led the team in scoring. Midfielders Lindsay Shandera and Caitlin Warnock help the Wildcats control the center field, while fullbacks Danielle Shandera, Rachel Ogle, Megan McGinn helped goalkeeper Lindsay Krell produced four league shutouts. Jack said strong play was also provided by outside halfbacks Andrea Bardin, Justine Walker, Melissa Fritsch and Casey Hammond and forward Bethany Jensen.

  • Kamiak runner is state bound: Kamiak’s Travis Boyd finished second in Friday’s Class 4A bi-district boys cross country meet after what he considered a disappointing sixth-place finish at the Oct. 19 Western Conference 4A meet.

    “I felt a lot better this time,” said the junior, who did not go to the 1999 state meet because of injury. “Last week I just kind of died at the end. I was much stronger this time.”
