    ATHLETICS

    Basketball: Metro League Playoffs begin tonight! The boys team plays at Lakeside and the girls at Ingraham in loser out games. Friday night was a packed house against rival RBHS. The Eagles played close in both games. The boys game was a thriller going down to the last seconds. Both cheer squads brought their A-game and entertained all night (including a pre-game Unity Cheer and Jasmine read a statement to the crowd about the history/purpose of cheer battles). The band was in awesome form and the gym was at full capacity. Great night in South Seattle!

Congrats to Nathan Truong (132), Jeramy Truong (145), DJ Arns (195), and Savion Galloway (220) for all taking home a Metro Championship in their weight class. Savion defeated the defending State Champion in his match. Also, Andrew Vuu (120) took home a 2nd place win. It was a recording setting weekend for the wrestling team! Congrats to them all and their amazing coaches – Dave Rosario, Dan Hamilton, Mitchell Torres, and Tracy Thorn. Regionals take place this Saturday at Eastside Catholic! State Championships begin Feb 22.
