Track and Field
With two new school records and two team championships so far, the Track and Field team is ready for the Post Season! Cody Chew broke the school record in pole vault with a jump of 14’6. Naomi Smith broke her own school record in the 3200m by 37 seconds with a time of 10:25.5. That time ranks Naomi 22nd in the nation! Meanwhile, both boys and girls teams won the 34th King’s Invitational titles out of 22 Christian schools from Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. The North Sound Conference Championships is on May 7th and King’s is the defending champions for both boys and girls teams.
The Tennis team is having an amazing undefeated season so far! This weekend, they will be competing in the Overlake Invitational and finish their regular season with matches next week against South Whidbey, Granite Falls, and Friday Harbor.
The Boys Soccer team is currently in second place in the North Sound Conference with an opportunity to capture a League Championship Friday, April 26th in South Whidbey. The team is very young this year with 5 Freshman and 5 Sophomores and is looking forward to starting district playoffs next week. With a District Championship win, they would automatically qualify for State!
With an experienced lineup, the Baseball team is having a successful year in the North Sound Conference currently sitting at 3rd place. The team returned eight of its nine starters last year. The boys are currently 8-5 in Conference and begin postseason play next week.
The Boys Golf team is having a solid season in the North Sound Conference. They have won 2 of 3 league matches with 2 more league matches this coming week and have had the opportunity to compete in the Tom Dolan Invitational at Everett Golf and Country Club as well as the Gamble Sands Invitational hosted by Chelan HS. There are 13 King’s Boys Golfers on this year’s roster. We are a senior lead team, with some other key upperclassmen contributing to this season along with very promising freshmen and sophomores that make up the 2019 King’s Knights.
Despite the odds of having a small team, Girls Golf has had close matches with South Whidbey at home and away at Sultan. The team won by 4 points against South Whidbey with only 5 players and 9 points against Sultan with only 4 players. Their record is currently 4-0. Next week is the last week of the regular season and some players have a really good chance at competing and claiming the individual league championship on May 6.
