The look of district champions was no Halloween disguise as the girls’ Vashon High School cross country team ran to win the West Central District III Championship last Saturday at American Lake in Lakewood.
The first Sunday in November is the date for the Northwest’s premier fall regatta, the Head of the Lake race through the University of Washington’s Montlake Cut.
It was a perfect setting for a Halloween night football game. Darkness fell, the temperature dropped, and the steam rose in waves off the football players’ sweaty bodies. The fog rolled in off the treeline, settling low over the Pirates’ home field, and Vashon rolled over the Chimacum Cowboys, scoring a season-high seven touchdowns, and winning the contest, 54-20.
The final tournament of the season for Vashon boys tennis took place last Thursday and Friday at the Lakewood Racquet Club. Vashon had a somewhat daunting task due to some unfortunate seeding, which had them facing first or second seeds in the first round.
The Vashon High School girls’ soccer team is in the midst of a playoff run. The West Central District tournament kicked off last weekend, as the Pirates took on the Coupeville Wolves of Whidbey and produced a dominating 3-0 Vashon win.
Vashon’s Seals Swim Team learned about water polo to cap off a tough but successful summer swim season that ended two weeks ago. The upper-level swimmers learned water polo from Jennie Darling, a former member of the nationally ranked San Jose State University water polo team.
The Vashon Wrestlers went 10-1 at the Oregon State Team Wrestling Camp July 7 to 10, placing fifth out of 36 teams from Washington, Oregon and California.
