Vashon Island Rowing Club's juniors were divided last weekend with some at a regatta on the East coast and others traveling internationally. The team was also larger than usual with the addition of members from a visiting German rowing team. Despite the distance and logistics, the team brought home a number of medals and placed well in a national event on Sunday.
Community Events, October 2016
The Vashon High School Pirates played two conference games last week, resulting in their first win and another loss. They beat Chimacum at home, 55-35, and lost to Port Townsend in Port Townsend, 41-6. Vashon is now 1-7 for the 2016 football season.
On Thursday, Oct. 20, the Vashon Island High School girls' soccer team won its last home game of the season against the Charles Wright Tarriers. Playing the rival team was a fitting last home game as the Pirates had suffered a painful loss at the last game against Charles Wright and weren't about to let it happen again.
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.
On Thursday, Oct. 13, the Vashon Island High School girls' soccer team took the field against Seattle Christian at home. Clad in their pink uniforms, they looked ready to beat Seattle Christian and support breast cancer awareness.
