By BILL CHRISTIANSON Redmond Reporter Redmond High’s fourth loss of the football season featured a record-breaking performance by Cameron Sandquist and a heart-breaking injury for John Martino.
Being that his offensive hitters average about 5-foot-10, Redmond volleyball coach Ross Johnson thought he had a tall team. Until the Issaquah Eagles stepped onto the court.
If there’s any good news for the Redmond Mustang football team, it’s that their 4A Kingco schedule doesn’t start until Friday against Eastlake, when the games really count.

The Bear Creek School’s star sophomore soccer player Ryan Strandin played a huge role in the Grizzlies’ 5-1 victory over Shoreline Christian at Paramount Park in Shoreline last Wednesday.

In the often uncertain world of high school sports, one team that seems assured of success this year is the Redmond High boys’ golf team.

It was not the 2008 homecoming that Redmond football coach Mike Pluschke had in mind.

What started out as a competition has turned into a partnership for Redmond High cross country teammates Sarah Lord and Devin McMahon.
On paper, the Redmond football team looks as good as it’s been in years. They return an excellent QB and team leader in David Gilbertson, a line averaging 265 pounds, and receivers John Martino and Cameron Sandquist will run routes and be targets for Gilbertson’s strong arm.
The Overlake girls’ soccer team won its season opener against Forest Ridge last Tuesday by a score of 2-0 in a nonleague contest at Forest Ridge.
