Folks in Class 4A girls soccer circles were wondering when the Eastlake Wolves were finally going to arrive.
Update: They’re here!
Eastlake plays in arguably the toughest soccer conference in Washington. After winning five of their past six games, the Wolves are now 7-1-1 in the Class 4A KingCo.
Eastlake moved into the Class 4A rankings at No. 9.
During their recent hot stretch, the Wolves beat three of KingCo’s top teams this season (Woodinville, Issaquah and Bothell). The only blemish was a 3-0 setback to defending state champion Skyline.
Also slipping into the rankings this week is Meadowdale, part of a tough bunch in the 3A WesCo.
Glacier Peak, No. 1 in 3A, needed overtime to beat No. 8 Everett, 3-2, last week.
