When you have a smaller roster than other schools, it changes how you define success. By sheer numbers, Woodinville was outmanned by North Creek in their dual meet last Thursday. And the predictable result was a 108-73 loss at Redmond Pool.
But individual milestones had the Falcon squad fired up.
Kylie Mosset and Ellie Mann shone bright as the Woodinville Falcons defeated Newport 172-155 last Tuesday night at Woodinville High School. Mosset finished first in parallel bars, balance beam and all-around competitions. Mann captured the top spot in floor.
With the win, Woodinville remained undefeated with a 5-0 record. Newport, a traditional Kingco power, saw its record slip to 2-4.
It was the type of win that can serve as a building block to a season. Woodinville’s 48-46 win over Issaquah last Wednesday was a study in poise and grit. It featured a good opponent, grace under pressure, and an affirming end result – a Falcon victory.
“As I told the kids, we bent but we didn’t break,” Woodinville coach Kurt Melton said. “We showed some toughness and fought through some mistakes. This is something we can build on.”
Things got fun with 6:00 left in the fourth quarter. With the scored tied at 37, Woodinville’s Josiah Bush drained a three-pointer, giving the Falcons the three point lead.
