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

Who would you like to catch up with?

Every Tuesday we run what’s called a flashback on our Prep Rally page, where we catch up with former local prep stars and see what they’re up to.

We love to ask them about their high school days and what they remember from it. Some have gone on to win Super Bowls and Olympic gold medals, others have focused on new careers like business or acting, others have been impossible to find!

The first article I ever had in print for the Times was a flashback on Tamara Diles, a former Newport gymnast, and I’ve probably done close to a dozen since.

It’s always fun, but can be difficult if a contact is hard to reach.

I’m curious, since our coverage area is vast and different generations of readers remember different athletes, who are some of the former prep stars from this area you’d like to catch up with? Any former teammates or local legends you can think of?

Morning stars (disclaimer: there were a lot of great finishes and performances last night, I wish I could’ve added more, but I wanted to get the post finished!)

1. Franklin baseball — Rallied for four runs in the bottom of the seventh for first win of the season. Andrew Helgren capped the comeback with a game-winning two-RBI double.

2. Puyallup baseball — The Vikings had a nice comeback of their own, scoring all their runs in a 4-3 win in the sixth and seventh innings. Ben Ruff had 8 K’s in long relief and Taylor Ausbun had the game-winning hit.

3. Mariner baseball — With two runs in the bottom of the seventh, the Marauders capped a nice upset in a nonleague game. Jaren Faga had the game-winning hit, one of five in the game for Mariner.

4. Tyler Hanson, Jefferson boys soccer — The coach’s kid played a part in all three goals in a win over Kentridge. Hanson, a senior midfielder, had two assists — on to younger brother, Chase — and converted a penalty kick in the 68th minute.

5. Kelsi Baker, West Seattle softball — The sophomore came into the game with an 0-3 record on the mound. Wednesday she threw a two-hit shutout and had 11 K’s.
