Congrats Mock Trial!

King’s Mock Trial wins BIG!!  This past weekend King’s Mock Trial took two teams to the Snohomish County District Competition.  Team RED took 1st place!  Led by team captains, Elisabeth Kelly and Kathryn Morris, this all junior class team did an outstanding job bringing in trial victories.  Competitors include Duncan Angiuli, Colton Fleming, Lachlan McGregor, Victoria Smith, and Kat Kirkpatrick.  Team WHITE took 2nd place!  Led by team captains, Grace Echelbarger and Mahrin McGregor, this mostly freshmen team really dialed in to beat far more experienced teams to achieve a second-place finish.  Team members include Amy Han, Annie Zhang, Carissa Nichoalds, Kate Gerspacher, Ana Sophia Avendano, and Anders Ruud.  Congratulations to all these hard-working students who are now preparing for the state competition held in Olympia March 20th – 22nd.  GO KNIGHTS!

Lots of options to participate in sports this season: Boys and Girls Golf, Tennis, Boys Soccer, Baseball, and Track.

For all spring sports be sure you have completed your paperwork before March 2 at www.registermyathlete.com. Athletes who played a sport in the fall or winter season of this year need to be sure your paperwork has been shared with your spring sport.

Booster Club would like to wish all our spring teams, Good Luck! We would also like to thank our families for their hard work and support of their students and King’s athletic programs.  Booster Club depends on our community’s support of the concession stand by your volunteer hours and the purchase of goodies!
