Dragons take fourth The Issaquah Dragons 12-and- under baseball team completed its season last week with a fourth- place finish at the Triple Crown World Series in Steamboat Springs, Colo. The Dragons battled the ele- ments and some of the nation's top teams at the tournament, which started July 27. In the tournament opener, the Dragons defeated the Rocky Mountain Eagles 10-3. The Dragons won their next two games easily, walloping the North Texas Elite 13-0 and the Colorado River Rats 13-0. The two victories sent the Dragons into the champi- onship round. In the first game of the champi- onship round, the Dragons battled the Southern California Valley Cats and Mother Nature. The game was interrupted by rain and lightning four times and took nearly five hours to play. The Dragons fell be- hind early, but after the delays, came back to pull within two runs. However, the Valley Cats held on for a 7-5 victory. Playing two loser-out games in the rain, the Dragons defeated the Kansas Crush 9-0 and Broomfield, Colo., 12-2. The victories put the Dragons into the Aug. 1 semifi- nals. The Dragons lost to the top- seeded Fayetteville, Ark., Cardi- nals 6-4 in the semifinals to finish fourth in the tournament. The Dragons led 2-0 in the top of the first, but the Cardinals responded with four runs in the bottom of the inning. The Dragons tied the score in the top of the fourth but the Cardinals broke the tie in the bottom of the inning and added an insurance run in the fifth. The Dragons threatened in the fifth and sixth innings, but were un- able to score. The Cardinals, managed by for- mer St. Louis Cardinal Tom Pag- nozzi, went on to win the series with a 10-0 victory against the Kansas Force. Tanner Laine, of the Dragons, was selected to the all-tournament team. Teammate Mitchell Mori- mote led the tournament in RBIs. The Dragons' team was John Brussa, Morgan McCullough, Ry- land Kerr, Michael Butler, Ethan Paul, Alex Rivera, Conner Belvin, Laine, Ethan Clements, Morimoto, Ty Gibson and Branson Barnecut. Coaching the team were Bill Clements, Mark Gibson and Mike Kerr. Lakeside 15's second The Lakeside Recovery 15-year- olds took second at the American Legion Junior A state tournament Aug. 5 in Moses Lake. Lakeside, battling through the consolation bracket, reached the title round when it defeated South Kitsap 11-8 Aug. 4. Then, Lakeside defeated Woodinville 8- 2 in the first game for the title Aug. 5, but Woodinville coun- tered with a 14-5 win in the sec- ond game to win the champi- onship. Black Sox win one The Issaquah Black Sex failed to place at the 15-and-under Mickey Mantle World Series in Owasso, Okla. However, the Black Sox did win their Aug. 4 opener. The Black Sox opened with an impressive 10-0 victory against the Gaitherburg, Md., Metro Fleet. Tyler Hillyer hit a home run for the Black Sox, who carried a 31-8 record into the tournament and were the Washington state cham- pions. However, in the second round Aug. 5, the Black Sox fell to the Dallas McCabe Mustangs 9-1. The Black Sex were eliminated by the Cherry Creek Royals 10-5 Aug. 6.

Two.pole fishing starts Recreational anglers have the option of using two poles starting Aug. 15 in most Washington lakes under a new law passed by the state Legislature. The two-pole endorsement does come with a fee. Anglers wanting to take advantage of the new op- portunity are required to pay $20 ($5 for seniors) for the endorse- ment, in addition to the recre- ational fishing license issued by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife. Because approximately 145 lakes and ponds will be excluded from the two-pole endorsement program, anglers should check the regulations carefully before they go fishing. The list of excluded lakes and ponds is at http://wdfw, wa.gov/licensing/twop ole. In King County, the excluded waters include Lake Sammamish, Lake Washington, Rattlesnake Lake, Ravensdale Lake, and Portage and Salmon bays. Excluded waters are those with conservation issues, such as wa- ters containing threatened-or en- dangered species, or lakes desig- nated for special management ob- jectives. 738 PHOTOS BY CHRISTOPHER HUBER At left, Uli Steldl, of Shoreline, receives a spectator's high-five after he crosses the finish line first in the fourth and final race of the Cougar Mountain Trail Run Series Aug. 8 at the Sky Country trailhead. He ran the 13.1-mile race in 1:34:16. At right, Seattle's Jeanine Stewart, of Seattle, finishes first for the women in the final Cougar Mountain Trail Run Senes race, coming in at 2:03:12. Trail run FROM PAGE C1 it in 1:51:14. The 13.1 -mile trail run was the final of the four- race 2009 Cougar Mountain Trail Run Series. In the first three races, participants ran five, 7.6 and 10.4 miles, respectively. Steidl acknowledged the challenge of the four hills along the Cougar Mountain course -- runners began the race from the Sky Country trailhead. The key to not getting too tired, runners said, was to start out at a moderate pace and conserve energy for the final stretch, which included the 1.2-mile Quarry Trail hill that gained more than 600 feet of elevation. Former Skyline High School standout Simon Sorensen, and coach and Beaver Lake Middle School teacher David Clymer, ran the race together. They came in about four minutes apart, crossing at 1:44:40 and 1:48:41 respectively. "He was going to run my pace, but ended up pulling me on," Clymer said after the race. Clymer regularly brings the Skyline cross country teams to Cougar Mountain trails for training runs. "It's our favorite place," he said. Despite the fact they know the terrain, Clymer and Sorensen said the hills wiped them out -- run- ners traversed about 2,700 feet of net elevation gain, Clymer said. Approximately 170 runners ran the race Aug. 8. Joey Chirillo, of Sammamish, came in 16th over- all with a time of 2:03:41. Issaquah residents Jesse Heise and Kris Palmer finished in 2:20:45 and 3:08:44, respectively.
