On Monday, Sept. 21, the Associated Student Body assembly celebrated the school’s fall sports, as well as other programs such as Robotics, Band and Cheerleading.

The Volleyball team is attempting to defend its State title again to make it four championships in a row. Senior Megan Jacobsen leads the team after their 2-0 start.

The Football team is led by seniors Ahmad Lewis and Erik Glueck. They avenged their devastatingly close loss against Gonzaga Prep with a decisive win over Stadium this past week.

Girls Soccer is off to a 2-0-1 start and looking forward to a solid season with many key underclasswomen. Coach Joe Waters leads the team in his 13th season.

Boys Cross Country is led by reigning 2015 Gatorade Track and Field player of the year Jack Yearian. They expect to improve on their past close finishes at State.

Girls Cross Country looks to find success through a balanced team. With no “star” runners, they run as a team with consistently performances by all.

Boy Tennis plans to build on their success after their win at the Thomas Jefferson Invitational. They have key matches with Gig Harbor and Olympia in the upcoming weeks.
