Boys’ tennis sends two to district tournament

The 2016 boys' tennis team got off to a great start this fall. After graduating 10 of the 12 players from last year's team, there were only two returners, and it was questionable as to whether there would be enough players for a team. Instead, there was a large turnout of 19 new players joining the two returners.

Rowers bring home a dozen medals at first regatta of the season

Imagine a race where you miss winning silver by three-tenths of a second and can't actually see your closest competitor. That is the beauty and the maddening nature of a head race, and exactly what the Vashon Island Rowing Club's (VIRC) junior women's quad had to contend with at this year's Tail of the Lake Regatta on Lake Union last Sunday. They finished with a bronze medal in their race along the 4,000-meter course.
