Moving On – Girls Soccer!
Girls soccer beat Overlake 1-0, which was a huge win for King’s! The team delivered Overlake their first loss of the season. Our Knights now head into the first round of state playoffs at Woolsey Stadium on Wednesday at 6pm. Admission for students is $7.00. With a win on Wednesday, our team would advance to 2nd round either at Cascade Christian or Montesano. If they make it to the final 4, games will be at Shoreline Stadium.

Our Girls Cross Country Team finished the season with 9th place at State, and the two individuals on our Boys Team who qualified to compete at State took 18th and 23rd place overall. Way to go the distance!
Our Knights lost last weekend’s Bi-District tournament to Cedar Park Christian ending this year’s run for State. Still, the future looks very bright for our Knights, as we have many strong, young players on all three teams and a talented group coming up from Jr. High.
We’d like to say a special thank you ALL parent volunteers for your incredible support in 2016! Special appreciation to Jay and Leslie Young, who over a 10 year period, have blessed us in many ways. Jay went from booster club rep to booster club president and ultimately our announcer and DJ for all home matches. Leslie coached at All Out, ordered uniforms, handled hotel bookings, prepared countless meals and hosted team gatherings.
Our Knights had a tough loss on Saturday. Here is what Coach Shapiro posted on Facebook:
“The greatest loss is not the scoreboard or the dream of playing more games or maybe playing for a state championship again, but the loss of what the 2016 football family had created. A special group of young men that learned how to love each other, battle together and make the most of every step of the journey. I have faith that the 2016 King’s High School football team will mature into amazing men, fathers, husbands, employees – – World Changers. The scoreboard does not define us. Our character, resiliency, willingness to serve others and pursuit of God is what makes us who we are. This chapter has come to an end but the story will continue to unfold. Love you all – Coach Shap”
We look forward to watching these teams next year!
