Budda Baker, Bellevue track and field

He’s best known for his abilities on the football field, but Baker showed he’s one of the best track and field athletes in the state at the Bellevue Invitational. He won the 100 meters (season-best 10.79), 200 (22.13) and long jump (school-record and state-leading 23-3¾) and was also part of the state-leading 400 relay team (42.24). “He works very hard in training, so it isn’t by accident that he achieves the success that he has,” coach John Hill said.

Claire McCarthy, Holy Names softball

McCarthy had a monster game, leading the Cougars to a 20-9 victory over Bainbridge in a clash between Metro League unbeatens. The senior catcher went 5 for 5 with two home runs (including a grand slam), a double and 10 runs batted in. She also went 2 for 3 with a double in the rematch later in the week, which Holy Names won 11-4, giving her a 1.875 slugging percentage in the sweep. “Her hard work and dedication to the team is like having another coach on the field,” coach Dale Yamamoto said.

Issaquah boys soccer team

With their 2-0 victory over Redmond, coach Kyle Tatro’s Eagles clinched a spot in the KingCo 4A championship match for the first time in school history. The Eagles (8-0, 10-0-1) have won nine in a row, the last seven by shutout.
