Conference breakdowns

As I noted last night, Redmond and Juanita’s wins against Roosevelt and Bothell helped make the KingCo 4A Mountain the most open race left in the area, with four teams left standing. The Seamount has the closest, though, with three teams within a game, and here’s the best part: they all play each other down the stretch.

KingCo 4A Lake

Franklin, at 13-0, has clinched.

KingCo 4A Mountain

Roosevelt 9-3: Lake Washington, Ballard, Bothell

Bothell 9-4: at Juanita, at Roosevelt

Juanita 8-5: Bothell, Woodinville

Redmond 6-6: Garfield, at Woodinville, Ballard

SPSL North

Kentridge 11-3

Decatur 11-3

Kentwood 11-3

Based on the SPSL’s power point tie-breaking system, Kentridge receives the top seed. Decatur and Kentwood will play Tuesday to determine a No. 2.

SPSL South

Curtis, at 13-1, has clinched.

WesCo North

Snohomish, at 13-1, has clinched.

Cleveland 10-3: Rainier Beach, at Ingraham, at Nathan Hale
