Boys Team earn Kingco Dual Meet Championship

The boys team ended the season with a 7 win and 1 loss record. They tied Inglemoor with the same season record. However, since Issaquah boys beat Inglemoor boys, they should win the championship based on beating them “head to head”. Stay tuned for the awards ceremony at Kingco on October 21st at 12:45 pm.

Congratulations to the boys team!
