"I think we’d have more people swimming if we had more teams . like Tam O’Shanter in the Interlake area because Mercer Island has the beach club. the country club and the shore club and that helps to develop swimmers."

No other event showed as much disparity between the two teams as the bars did, with the Knights (2-0, 2-1) scoring their highest total of the four events with a 44.15 to Mercer Island’s 29.7. Mundahl led the Islanders’ (0—2, 1-4) contingent in the event with an 1 lth-place (66). Erica Close (6.4), Amy Fields (6.1). Dana Santora (5.4) and Liane Waters (5.2) rounded out Mercer Island’s effort in the event. Unfortunately for Mercer Island, the bars was simply a foreshadowing of what was to come. Newport would take the top eight places in the vault, the top nine in the balance beam and top 10 in the floor exercise to finish the night with eight of the top individual scores in the all-around competition.

Against Mount Si, Burmeister lit up the Wildcats for 22 points and Yuen rang in with 16 to lead Mercer Island to a 47—41 win. The Islander sixth grade team lost to Eastlake 55-42 and was nipped by Mount Si 49-48. They are now 3-5 in to take ninth—place. 1n the beam, three Islanders tied the team‘s best finish with Mundahl, Carly Bridge and Sara Kiviat all scoring 7.0s to take 10th - place, while Bridge led Mercer Island in the floor with her 1 1th-place 7.7. “We lost. but we did really well,” said Fields of her teammates who im- proved their team score for the fourth straight week. “We had a good night, but I think after Sarah hurt herself it made us try to toughen up. I think people were more paced because we were against Newport and we didn’t ex— pect to win. We didn’t want to look like we wanted to lose. but they were really firing.” "It’s pretty easy to do well with all the club girls." Lewis said of Newport‘s impressive showing. "We were there before, so it’s always possible. I don’t see them champs forever. We have girls who used to be in club three or four years ago that come out. “We try to have a lot of fun,” he said. “That’s what I what them to re- member. not who they beat.
