Lakeside HS Sports Roundup
Week of May 21 - 28
Spring sports are now over. There will still be small events like awards ceremonies and such, but the season is officially over. Lakeside athletes from track and field, tennis, golf, and softball all went on to participate in Washington State 1A Tournaments this week.
After all their hard work and dedication, the Lady Eagles softball team finally beat Colville last week, earning them the top seed to the state tournament this week. The Eagles first game of the Tournament was early Friday morning against River View, where Lakeside got their first win. In game two later that afternoon, they played Castle Rock and won 6-4. These two wins put them into day 2. Lakeside’s season ended with a 10-9 loss to Onalaska in the consolation semifinals. They fell into the consolation bracket after losing to eventual state champion Connell 7-5 in the semifinals. Lakeside finished the season with a 21-7 record.
Early this week, Lakeside’s boys golf team headed off on their 300-mile long trip to The Home Course in DuPont, WA, to play in the 1A State Tournament. Overall, Lakeside had an outstanding tournament, placing 2nd as a team.
Lakeside girls tennis doubles team, comprised of Susie Aguirre and Nicky March, qualified in the Regional Tennis Tournament the week of the 14th, and moved on to compete in the 1A State Girls Tennis Doubles Tournament in Yakima this week. They beat their first two competitors but then lost to a doubles team from Overlake, and were sent to the consolation bracket. They were then defeated by Chelan and finished in 6th place overall.
The Eagles track and field team competed in the 1A State Tournament at Eastern Washington University in Cheney this weekend. After two days of competition, for the boys team Michael Anderson placed 1st in the 800-meter prelims, 2nd in the 800-meter finals and 4th in the 1600-meter finals; Kyle Powell placed 2nd in the triple jump finals and 3rd in the long jump finals.

Last month, Anandae set a state record by becoming the first girl to vault 13 feet. On Saturday, she vaulted to an all-classifications state-meet record of 12-7. Her 12-7 mark broke the 1A meet record she set last year at 11-6. With this title, Anandae is a four-time state champion in the pole vault. Anandae has accepted a full-ride athletic scholarship to compete at EWU.
