Unlike Dey and Moore, Brandrup was competing in his very first track meet. Btandrup, who joined the track team two weeks late after Lovelace encouraged him to try out, was pleased by his fourth—place toss in the javelin of 111-10. Brandrup rounded out a strong finish in the event by Mercer Island as Justin Petersongrabbed second (132-6) , and Jacob Russak was third (I 18— 4).

Continued from page Bl “I made a huge mistake there,” said Grant of his home run pitch he gave up to McElreath. “It couldn’t have been a , better pitch —~ I could’ve put it on a tee. When you have dreams, you dream of that pitch; it was terrible. I kept it inside all day and got the first pitch for a strike and tried to get inside again and made a mistake and got whiplash watching it fly away.” ' SAID COONEY: “ In any other field I would caught it. I just couldn’t get up enough - I was six inches too short. It was a solid line drive, but at Bannerwood (Park in Bellevue), that’s 40-50 feet from the fence." McElreath’s blast proved to the last highlight for Mercer Island as Newport closer David Storlie shut the door sound- ly on the Islanders in the top of the sev- enth, as he retired the side on only 10 pitches (7 strikes). On Monday. the Islanders whipped Cedarcrest 10—1 behind the combined one-hitter tumed in by White and Spencer Smith in Duvall. McElreath continued his home run barrage by belting his sixth, going 3—for4. MI also regained sole pos- session of first place as Newport was up- set at home by Issaquah in nine innings, 1 1-8. In Wednesday’s 8—6 victory over Sammamish, McElreath» led the way for the Islanders with a pair of homers and five RBIs. White recorded his third save of the season with a stellar two— inning relief stint.

Teammate Stacey Holdren contin— ued the late second~quarter Sammamish surge as she added an- other goal with seven seconds left in the half as the Totems went into halftime down 8-3. DESPITE TWO more goals from Williams, the five-goal deficit would be as close as Sammamish ever came to Mercer Island as Danielle Tseng, Heather Lewandowski, Lauren Williams, Amelia Winslow and Lauren Ayers all scored second-half goals to cushion the win. “We played well for a brand—new team; only three of us have played be- fore,” said Ali Williams, who, led the Totems with a career-high four goals. “It’s fun playing them. They have a lot of good players and ex- perience. We learned a lot from playing them before state.” The Islanders were also taking notes on improving the uneven play that helped Sammamish total the most goals in a losing cause against Mercer Islander this season. “Whenever we play a team with skill levels below ours, we tend to play down to their level. We come out with a bang and kind of lose it,” said Ayers, MI senior co—captain. “I think we’ve been good about not thinking we’re the team to beat. We know there are still teams out there that can beat us." “They’ve proven to me when the chips are down they play the best WEEK. 5 he led the Mercer Island Little Dribblers r ' recently.

Junior Karen Intrachat topping Melissa Gorey 6-2, 6-1 at No. 4 and fresh- man Christina Pluta doubling up on Jana Hildebrand, 6-3, 6-3 at No. 6. “It really was a confidence boost- er because even though I’ve been winning my matches, today I felt I played the best I had in quite a while." Molly McIntosh said. THEISLANDERS’ doubles learns were equally impressive, as last year’s state runner-up sister duo of Angie and Jessica Fry led the way with a 6~ 1, 6—2 win over Wig and Heimbigner at No. I, followed by Kristen White and Julie Sandler’s 6— 1, 6—3 triumph over Peterson and Gorey. Fittingly, Jenette Intrachat and Jennifer Tung topped off the Islanders’ 46th straight dual match victory with a 6—0, 6—0 win over Elizabeth Olson and Yong Lee. “We were really pumped up for this match,” Jenette Intrachat said. “This was our first match where every- one was here and with such a large team this is a big opponunity for us to cheer everyone on, which makes you kind of smile. It sounds corny, but it does.” The victory over Newport essen~ tially wraps up the fourth straight and'28th Kingco title for Mercer Island as its last three opponents Interlake (2-1), Skyline (0—3) and Bellevue (2-2) —- all have at least one loss on the year.
