The Redmond football team put forth one of its best efforts of the season, but it still wasn’t enough as Newport beat the Mustangs, 21-14, in a 4A Kingco Crest Division contest at Redmond High Friday night.
The Overlake School boys’ soccer coach Bob Bristol knew going into the season that he had a great team.
After all, the same core of players are back from last season when the Owls finished an amazing 10-1-1 in their last 12 games. Bristol figured this season’s squad seemed poised for success. So far, so good.
The Owls’ dominating, aggressive style of play was on full display last Thursday as Overlake blanked the Cedar Park Christian Eagles, 3-0 — its third straight win — in an Emerald City League contest at The Overlake School.
Redmond posted its best golf score of the season on Monday at the Mount Si Golf Club.
Unfortunately for the Mustangs, so did Mount Si. The Wildcats slipped past Redmond by four strokes, 183-187, in a match many believe will decide the regular-season 4A Kingco champion.

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.
Redmond resident Steven Toyoji, who is currently a senior attending Arizona State University, finished seventh in the men’s 400-meter final at the recent Beijing Paralympics (T52 division) with a time of 1 minute, 5.41 seconds.
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. Since taking over in 2006, Redmond head golf coach Chris Zimmerman has compiled a record of 20-1 and has worked with many of this year’s players since they were sophomores.
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.
