Brothers Michael and Patrick McCarthy both competed at the 2B State Golf Tournament in Tumwater on May 21-22.  They played well enough to bring home the 4th place trophy for the SGS boys golf team!  Michael finished 9th overall, shooting 82/78 and Patrick finished 18th, shooting 87/86.  "It is the first team trophy on the boys side since a 4th place in 2015," says coach Brad Kirsch.  "The boys made a couple of clutch putts at the end of their rounds to keep us in it." 

Congratulations as well to Liv Senske, who also competed at State.  "Liv had the second best round she has ever shot in a tournament, but missed the cut by 4 shots.  She played great!"  See a Photo Gallery of the golfers in action and holding their hardware.

Maria Madero and Grace Generous represented Saint George’s with class and heart as they competed against some of the state's best players at the 2B Tennis State Championships in Yakima last week. The girls lost their first game against #1 seed Chimacum; 1-6, 0-6. The girls then had a hard-fought battle with Naches Valley’s #1 Doubles Team, losing 4-6, 5-7, with several of the games going into deuce.  The venue was beautiful, and the girls had the opportunity to play on the #1 court right next to the clubhouse.  The two were most excited for their State Sweatshirts, says coach Matt Melka, which they were proud to show off in the Photo Gallery of shots from the championships.

Maggie McLaughlin, Grace Harrill, Jora Gleason and Reagan Ivey not only cruised to the 2B State Championship in the 4x400 meter race on May 25 at Eastern Washington University's track.  They entered Saint George's in the record books as the first high school of any size in Washington history to win the 4x400 meter race five years in a row!  Ivey anchored the team, finishing in 4:09.32, almost four seconds ahead of second-place DeSales HS.  “It feels amazing,” Harrill said in a Spokesman-Review article. “It’s awesome.  We ran our hearts out and did the best we could.  I’m glad we did it for the past 4-by-4 teammates, too.  It’s just awesome.”

The Dragons were unbeatable in the State relay races.  Harrill, Gleason, Ivey and Fair Niven combined to win the 4x200 in a time of 1:47.40.  And Harrill, Ivey and Niven were joined by Taylor Sande to capture the 4x100 race in 50.74.  In the individual events, Niven took 3rd in the 100 meter race, Ivey was 4th in the 400 meters, McLaughlin was 6th in the 800 meters, Sande leaped to 8th in the triple jump, and Gleason finished 8th in both the 1,600 and 3,200 meter races.  Overall the six SGS girls earned 4th place as a team at State.  See a Photo Gallery of the girls races shot by Frank Harrill and Azra Sande, as well as the 4x100 runners highlighted in an SWX Video and a video of the Girls 4x400 Race & Medal Ceremony!  

SGS junior Dan Rigsby won the 2B State Championship 400 meter race in 51.08 seconds.  He also anchored the Dragons' 4x400 meter relay team with Chaitanya Naluri, Oscar Angell and Marcus Manson that placed 3rd overall (3:29.47) at the State meet held at EWU's track on May 25.  In individual races, Manson was 4th in the 100 meter race and Angell was 6th in the 300 meter hurdles, helping the boys team earn a tie with Colfax for 12th overall in State.  See a Photo Gallery of the boys races by Frank Harrill.

Saint George's boys won their first District 7 golf title in school history on May 13, edging out Colfax by 2 points. That ended a streak of four straight district titles for the Colfax boys.  Michael McCarthy shot an even par 72, hitting all 18 greens in regulation to finish tied for 3rd overall for the District Tournament.  His brother, Patrick, captured the 11th and final spot at the state tournament, making par on #18 at Meadowwood to beat a Lind Ritzville player by 1 shot.  These two will represent SGS this week at the State Tournament in Tumwater.  

Beyond the McCarthy brothers, all five players contributed to the team victory.  "Winston Poppell made a big push on day 2 to finish 14th, Hunter Johnson hung in there after a rocky start to finish 15th, and Caleb Flegel played consistently throughout to finish 17th," said coach Brad Kirsch.  "If any of these three had slid more than two spots in the final standings, we wouldn’t have beat Colfax.  Power in numbers and they came through!"

On the girls’ side, Liv Senske also qualified for the State Tournament, shooting a 98 -- the first time she had broken 100 in a tournament setting.  She finished 10th overall to earn her first trip to State!  See a Photo Gallery of the Dragon golfers at the District tournament.
