Redmond High's James Boker, who graduated last Wednesday with the rest of the Mustang senior class, was recently selected to play in the renowned East-West All-Star game, a high school football showcase pitting the top players from the eastern and western halves of the state.
In this day of specialization when it comes to high school prep sports, the three-sport athlete has become an increasingly rare breed. But don't tell that to Bear Creek School junior Morgan Rial.
Morgan Rial's soccer, basketball and track coaches reminisce on their favorite memories involving our Female Athlete of the Year:
For Redmond High's Michael Conforto, one could say he was groomed for athletic success at a young age. His mother, Tracie-Ruiz Conforto, is a two-time Olympic gold medalist in synchronized swimming, and his father, Mike, is a former linebacker at Penn State having played under legendary coach Joe Paterno.
Michael Conforto's two head coaches, Jeff Chandler and Dan Pudwill, take a trip down memory lane as they share stories from the sports seasons involving our Male Athlete of the Year.
Playing in the 3rd/4th place consolation final at Cheney Stadium on a sunny Saturday afternoon, the Redmond High baseball team battled back from a early deficit to fall just short to the Richland Bombers, 9-7.
The Bear Creek School boys' golf team completed their banner year by polishing off the program's first 1B/2B boys' golf team title at Meadow Park Golf Course in Lakewood on Wednesday, finishing with 111 team points to second-place DeSales' 82.
Playing at the new Downriver Golf Course in Spokane, the Redmond Mustangs struggled to a seventh-place finish at the girls' golf Class 4A state tournament on a blustery Wednesday afternoon after having five of six state-bound golfers make the 18-hole cut.
So far in the state tournament, the Redmond High baseball team (20-7) really hasn't been challenged in their two victories – a 15-2 thrashing of Olympia and a 6-0 shutout of defending state champion Kentwood.
With their entire season on the line every game since their opening round Kingco loss to Inglemoor back on May 7, the Redmond High School baseball responded every time, with lopsided loser-out victories over Issaquah and Skyline, as well as a 6-2 defeat of the Vikings in a pivotal rematch.
Behind some consistent shooting by the Mustangs' top scorers and a tremendous second-round rally by seniors Stephanie Schoeppel and Carley Kalina, the Redmond High girls' golf team won the 4A District Tournament at Mount Si with 87 team points to Newport's 75.
Redmond High senior Zach Abbruzza admitted that his team was "embarrassed" by their 8-1 loss to Inglemoor last Saturday in the opening round of the 4A Kingco baseball tournament. The Gonzaga-bound pitcher and the rest of the squad made amends for the early postseason defeat, routing the Skyline Spartans 7-0 at Woodinville High on Tuesday in a loser-out contest.
With Eastlake running away with the 4A Kingco Crest Division title, the Redmond Mustangs fastpitch team made a strong statement on Wednesday night that — for now — they are the second-best team in the division.

The No. 2-ranked Redmond High baseball team hasn't made it easy on itself this season, but the homer-happy Mustangs always seem to find a way to get the job done.
Confident Mustang golfers shooting for state title: Eight-year Kingco win streak currently at 78 matches
Last year, the Redmond High girls' golf team was considered relatively raw and inexperienced. Having graduated four seniors that made the state cut the year before, the expectations were realistically lowered for a squad that needed unproven players to step up in order to contend.
After butting heads a few too many times as freshmen doubles partners, twins Grant and Marcus Munoz decided to go their separate ways, at least on the tennis court. In his sophomore and junior years, Grant was a force to be reckoned with in singles action, narrowly missing out on a state berth last season, while Marcus has placed at state twice with two different doubles partners.
After a couple of underachieving years in the Redmond High School boys’ soccer program, head coach Patrick Scheibe thinks this might be the year of the Mustang. And looking at his roster this year, there’s no reason to doubt him.
If the Redmond High fastpitch team’s preseason was any indication, opposing pitchers will need to be extra-sharp this season against the quality bats on head… Continue reading
