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

ESPN prep coverage Washington-heavy

I wanted to pass along some links from ESPN’s high school page. Just a couple minutes of exploring and I found a number of references to Seattle area teams and players.

— First the Fab 50 football rankings have Skyline of Sammamish at No. 20, up one spot from last week. There’s also a short recap on the LW game.

— The Fab 50 girls soccer rankings introduce Beamer of Federal Way at No. 24 after being unranked last week, which is a nice accomplishment for the Titans. Lakeside of the Metro league — which has outscored opponents 25-0 this season — sneaks in at No. 50. State-by-state rankings also include Bellarmine Prep in the Top 3s section.

— There’s a short little story about Jake Heapsfavorite video games. Kind of offbeat and fun. Mario Kart and Madden are among the picks.

— Lastly, I found a write-up involving recent transfers and movement of top-flight basketball recruits. Avery Bradley and Tony Wroten are mentioned.

Just some quick info for those stuck at the office and in need of a quick prep pick-me-up.

If you ever see an interesting link or story anywhere, be sure to pass it along. This is a great forum, with infinite space.

Morning stars

1. Red-number golf scores — I’m a sucker for under-par golf and here are Tuesday’s crop of Ryder Cup hopefuls. Chris Olmstead of Rogers shot a remarkable 5-under 31 at High Cedars and teammate Thomas Johnson had a 34. Redmond’s Alex Maroz shot a 1-under 35 at the Golf Club at Newcastle. Broc Johnson of Beamer had a 1-under 35 at Sumner Meadows. Bainbridge’s Kyle Hurt (33) and Kyle Leonard (34) were under at the par-35 Wing Point. Eastlake’s Kevin Penner was 1-under at the par 36 Sahalee East course.

2. KingCo tennis — Lots of match-ups Tuesday were filled with tiebreakers and three-set matches. Lake Washington, Mercer Island and Sammamish particularly had to work hard for wins.

3. Bellevue Christian cross-country — Both the girls and boys teams swept multi-team meets. Allison Hussey and Andrew Van Ness also had individual wins for the Vikings.

4. WesCo divers — In a battle of the returning No. 4 and No. 5 finishers at state, Kamiak’s Fiona Weeks with 214.95 points bested Marysville-Pilchuck’s Sarah Clark in a head-to-head regular season match-up.
