The latest news and analysis on high-school sports around the Seattle area

Ironwoman

Mercer Island swimmer Rachel Godfred has accomplished a pretty impressive feat: attaining state-qualifying times in all eight individual events, also known as the Ironman, for the third consecutive year.

That includes the 200-yard individual medley, the 50 freestyle, the 100 freestyle, the 200 freestyle, the 500 freestyle, the 100 butterfly, the 100 backstroke and the 100 breaststroke.

The amazing part: Godfred did this in only five meets. And she is no jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none, either. She took second in Class 3A last fall in the 200 IM and the 100 butterfly.

In today’s paper, Josh Mayers brings you the story of the O’Dea golf team, for which second and third in the state the past two year just won’t cut it. Included are several of the state’s best players to watch, whether they’re in stroke play or using that point system I haven’t quite figured out yet (and am making it my mission today to do so.)

UPDATE (11:45 a.m.): Mission accomplished.

Morning stars

1. Jake Webb, Skyline, boys golf. Shot a 3-under 33 at Snoqualmie Falls in loss to Issaquah.

2. Sarah Alyward, Lindbergh, girls’ soccer. Scored a hat trick in 8-0 win against Evergreen.
