1. Murray Longbotham, Mercer Island, boys swimming. The top senior on one of the state’s most talented teams — maybe in all of state history. Longbotham put up excellent times on Thursday night in the 200 freestyle and 100 butterfly, and he was also part of the winning 200 medley relay team and the 400 free relay team.
2. Mackenzie Brandon, Seattle Academy, girls basketball. Brandon scored 33 points to lead Seattle Academy to a 60-36 win against Cedar Park Christian.
3. Cole Dickerson, Federal Way, boys basketball. Dickerson, a 6-foot-7 junior, scored 25 points as the top-ranked Eagles brushed off Jefferson 73-48.
