  • Written by Derek Johnson

Last Thursday night, Northshore residents may have sensed something in the air. The tectonic plates of the KingCo Conference underwent a major shift. The Woodinville Falcons came of age and knocked off the powerhouse Bothell Cougars 52-48 in the KingCo 4A championship game.

“We’ve worked so many years to get here,” Woodinville forward Alena Coomar said. “So many years we’ve played Bothell and we’ve gotten close but haven’t beaten them. And it feels awesome that our hard work finally paid off.”

Falcon juggernaut advances (again) to State meet
