Young Guns outduel Rebels 103-80

  • Written by Derek Johnson

Last year, Woodinville’s fantastic freshman class was nicknamed “Young Guns” after the 1988 western which starred the charismatic cast of 1980’s “Brat Pack” members. But last Thursday at Redmond Pool, those swimmers started to come of age, as they cruised to a 103-80 win over Juanita. 

With the win, Woodinville improved to 3-2 on the season. The mere fact the Falcons have a winning record serves as evidence that coach George Sayah is on the right track.   

“It was a great day,” Sayah said. “We got off to the great start, which was nice. It sets a tone for us and motivates the guys to get out and swim as hard as they can.”

A Christmas Eve Conversation with Jaden Sheffey

  • Written by Derek Johnson

It was a few weeks ago, when Woodinville played Gonzaga Prep in the State Quarterfinals. Former Falcon quarterback Jaden Sheffey was back at Pop Keeney Stadium. He leaned against the fence behind the Woodinville bench. A year ago, he had guided that team to the State Championship game. But now, he was a spectator, watching his old buddies win 45-24.

“It was weird being on the sideline and not being in green,” Sheffey said. “It was also a cool moment. I got to see a lot of old teammates and some of the younger guys who were now on the field. It was great seeing the team succeed... Pop Keeney is a special place.”
