The act is small. But the message is big. A glimpse at the helmets of the Bellevue football team reveals a small pink heart on the backside. A heart that reads a simple four-word message that has become a rallying cry for the entire Wolverines football program. That message reads "Bellevue battle for Natalie."
An unusual week of practice led to an uncharacteristic first quarter for the Bellevue football team. Due to the weather and school cancellations, the Wolverines were only able to hold two practices this week. The disruption of their normal schedule was evident in the first quarter of Friday's semifinal matchup with Lakes at the Tacoma Dome. Bellevue fumbled twice in the quarter, including once at the Lancers' 10-yard line. With the timing of the Wing-T offense off, the No.1 Wolverines looked vulnerable. Then came the second quarter. The Wolverines ripped off 28 straight points and stepped up defensively, cruising to a 35-7 win over Lakes that returns the team to the Class 3A state championship game for the eighth time in 10 seasons.

Friday was one of those nights for Interlake. One of those nights where good things get better and bad things go good. A quick start keyed by some unusual plays fueled the Saints to a 47-26 win over Port Angeles in the first round of the Class 2A state playoffs. Interlake got on the board quickly, scoring less than four minutes into the game on a Matt Malos 32-yard touchdown pass to Kamana Adriano.
Newport baseball coach Hal DeBerry knows he's a lucky man. He was reminded of it Wednesday afternoon, as he watched two of his senior pitchers, Jared Fisher and Cole Wiper, sign National Letters of Intent to play Pac-10 baseball next season. "To be able to have one player in your program who can do that is very fortunate as a coach, but to be able to have two, that is something that is very special," DeBerry said. "That speaks to the ability that these guys have." Fisher, a 6-foot-4 right-handed pitcher, signed with the University of Washington, while Wiper, also a 6-foot-4 righty, signed with the University of Oregon.
Jordan Todd said he was a bit tired after playing twice in four days and preparing again for a game Saturday. It's hard to blame the Interlake junior running back. After all, he scored 11 touchdowns in those two games, getting plenty of work on the ground as the Saints rebounded from a tough loss last week to win the West Central District play-in game Tuesday. "In practice Wednesday and Thursday I could barely run," Todd said. "But just like coach told us, we just had to tough it up and go."

In the ever-competitive KingCo swimming circuit, it takes a strong team to rise above all others. Newport, this year, is showing itself to be the class of the conference. The Knights, led by strong performances from every class, swept through the regular season undefeated and capped things off with a win at the KingCo League Meet last weekend at the University of Washington pool.

Mike Miller is keenly aware things have worked out pretty nicely for his Newport football team. The Knights, at 5-4, knocked off Crown division No.2 Inglemoor 28-17 Friday in the KingCo 4A crossover playoffs. Because of that win, Newport claimed KingCo's No.3 seed to the week 10 playoffs, while Eastlake and Issaquah (who both beat the Knights during the regular season), take home the No.4 and No.5 seeds.
Monday night's KingCo 4A regular season finale between Newport and Issaquah was for all the marbles. Issaquah was sitting at a perfect 9-0 in league play, yet the Knights, at 8-1, could capture the KingCo regular season title with a win.
When Interlake's cross country team hits the course, success begins and ends with a team concept. That theory - the idea that yes, even cross country incorporates teamwork - has hit hard with this year's version of the Saints squad and has them looking to make school history. "It's probably weird for people to think that in cross country there is teamwork," said Max Crowell, the Saints No.1 runner and one of its captains. "But it's really just knowing that everyone has your back that pushes you."
