Varsity season comes to an end with a loss to Woodinville last night, 63-77. The kids played tough and with a lot of heart, but in the end couldn't overcome Woodinville's three-point shooting and their height under the basket.
Thank you to all the parents, friends, fans, students, grandparents, and other relatives who supported all our teams throughout the season. Sports is a great metaphor for all the life lessons these young men are learning, and to have a village of support around them means the world to them and their families. Issaquah is known throughout KingCo as one of the best places to play and coach because of all the positive support. You guys are truly amazing!
We'll keep you updated throughout the spring, summer and fall with all the off-season activities, and will look forward to a great 2017-18 season. Go Eagles!!! ...
