THE ISSAQUAH PRESS WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 12, 2009 * C3 Hat trick: 'He combines great abilities' PROM PAGE C1 especially difficult adversary. Eagles Coach Jason Licten- berger has been impressed with Grisham's strength on the field. "He is a great player and a fan- tastic leader.... He combines great abilities," Lictenberger said. "He receives the ball really well, he is able to hold the ball under pres- sure, and his vision and distribu- tion are great." This summer, Grisham is work- ing at Skyhawks summer camp and playing for the Premiere team Crossfire. In his free time he likes to swim, watch movies and hang out with friends. But most of the time, he's playing soccer. Grisham scored a total of 10 goals this season. "I want to work with him to look to go to the goal himself," Licten- berger said. Grisham has also been an influ- ential leader for the team and his school. He became a captain on the varsity team his freshman year and is involved with student gov- ernment. "He knows how to balance," Lictenberger said. "He has a re- ally fun, silly side. You can tell he is well liked on campus. He knows when we can joke around... [He is a] player who can be silly, but bring everyone back to business." Junpei Tsuji is a co-captain with Grisham on the varsity soccer team. Tsuji plays center midfield and is also an incoming senior. This year was Tsuji's first year as co-captain. "I am pretty optimistic, I like to joke around .... I bring comic re- lief," Tsuji said. Tsuji and Grisham bring differ- ent leadership styles to the field. Grisham "gets really into the game, he's really passionate," Tsuji said. "I am there to calm him down. He leads the team with hard work. He hates losing on the field." The two captains seem to com- plement each other well, Grisham providing the passion, drive, and inspiration and Tsuji as the low- key jokester who focuses on the positive, even when things are down. Looking back on the year, "the missing piece at the end of the year was (that we didn't) win state," Tsuji said. "That made go- ing to state bittersweet." As for the future, the team has high hopes. Grisham is "very seri- ous about winning it all next year," Lictenberger said. "Our goal next year is to win state. We have a lot of guys on varsity who are in (their) fourth year starting (on var- sity)... We started as freshmen. Now we know what it's like to go to state. We feel like we can do it next year."

GLORIOUS GLIDERS BY STEPHANIE DOYLE lssaquah Gliders members and Sammamish residents (from left) Devin Sharps, Ian Gelfer and Liam Doyle stand at the Regional Junior Olympic Championships held at Willamette University in Salem, Ore.

Baseball: Lakeside rebounded after 7-6 loss PHOM PAGE C1 saquah senior-to-be, doubled down the right field line to drive in two runs. West followed with a run-scoring single. It didn't appear that Lakeside was headed for the championship round after losing to Charter Cove 7-6. Lakeside held the lead for most of the game and led 6-1 go- ing into the top of the eighth in- ning, when Charter Cove scored four times to make it a one-run game. Brent Milan then hit a two-run double off Hatred in the top of the ninth to cap Charter Cove's come- back. Hering had two hits and drove in four runs for Lakeside. Sean Penberthy, of Skyline, also had two hits. Lakeside starting pitcher Jared Fisher, a Newport sophomore, tossed seven strong innings and had six strikeouts. On Aug. 7, Lakeside outlasted Lewiston, Idaho, 12-11 in a loser- out game. Yarnell provided Lake- side with six innings of gutsy relief pitching. Issaquah grad Kyle Sutherland, Penberthy and West each had three hits. West also drove in three runs. Lakeside broke an 8-8 tie in the top of the seventh inning by scor- ing four runs. Yarnell singled in O'Donnell with what proved to be the winning run. Newport gradu- ate Kevon Zadeh, eeuberthy and West also drove in runs in the in- ning. Yarnell held the lead but worked out of a small jam in the bottom of the ninth. After Lewiston got a one-out single, Yarnell retired the next two batters to give Lakeside its dramatic victory. Lakeside led 1-0 after the third inning. In the top of the third, Lewiston knocked out Lakeside starter Hering with six runs. How- ever, Lakeside came back with three runs in the top of the fourth inning. Issaquah grad Marie Sanel~i had a sacrifice fly to knock in a run and Sutherland drove in a run with a single. Lakeside broke the tie with four runs in the top of the sixth after two outs. Victor King, of Newport, singled in one run and West drove in two more with a single. O'Donnell stole home for the fourth run.

Feam~ Exchange Alaska, 12-2. Lemke, who signed a letter of intent with Central Washington University, tossed a complete game, striking out nine and issuing just three walks. Lemke's "biggest bugaboo is throwing strikes," Reese said. "When he does throw strikes, he's really tough. He has a good changeup and curveball. His last two outings have been tremendous for us. West continued his hot hitting in place of Spencer Rogers, Lake- side's top hitter. Rogers missed the tournament because of a fam- ily reunion in Hawaii. West had three hits and drove in two runs as Lakeside eliminated the Alaska state champs. Sutherland, Hering and O'Donnell each had two hits. Lakeside went ahead 2-0 in the top of the third inning. Sutherland singled in a run and Penberthy knocked in a run with a sacrifice fly. West had a two-run single when Lakeside broke open the game with five runs in the top of the seventh.

"I just want to see what it's like to be in one of these things." Canlis, the oldest registered Sammamish resident, is confi- dent he'll finish the race. He isn't, however, sure how he will fare on the 4.3-mile running portion of the upcoming 16th an- nual Beaver Lake Triathlon Aug. 15. "The run is going to be ...well, we'll see what happens," Canlis said. "[I look forward to] having a good time; having fun, and I'm reasonably confident that I'll fin- ish it." Canlis, along with up to 600 other athletes, will test his en- durance in swimming, running and cycling Aug. 15. Beaver Lake Park will serve as the start and finish line, as well as the exchange point for all three legs of the race.

The triathlon begins at 7:45 a.m. at Beaver Lake Park. Partici- pants -- some solo and some on teams -- begin with the quarter- mile swim. They will then hop on their bikes for a 13.8-mile ride through Sammamish, down Duthie Hill Road, onto Highway 202 and back up the Plateau via Southeast Issaquah-Fall City Road. Athletes will finish the race with a 4.3-mile run around Beaver Lake. Residents could stop by to en- joy the festivities of the day and jovial atmosphere at the park. The Beaver Lake Triathlon is a shorter "sprint" triathlon, but serves as a qualifying race for athletes training for Ironman races, Freechtle said. "It's a really good atmosphere, and if you have kids, it's getting them to see what other sports are available," Freechtle said. "It's in- spiring to watch these athletes." In 2008, about 650 people reg- istered for the race, Freechtle said. The most the event has ever received was about 700 in 2004. Seattle's Adam Jensen won the triathlon in 2008 with a time of 1:06:39. Audrey Baldesari, of Redmond, was the top female fin- isher (1:17:01). Canlis said he's not worried about competing, he just wants to experience a triathion for the first time as a participant. Having trained in the calm waters of the Redmond Gold's Gym pool, he has yet to practice in Beaver Lake. "Swimming in the lake (is) probably best left as surprise," Canlis said. Registration is open until Aug. 14. Athletes doing all three legs who sign up by Aug. 13 pay $70 -- the fee goes up to $75 Aug. 14. Team participants pay $40 or $45 until Aug. 13, depending on how many legs each person will do. The fees increase by $5 on Aug. 14.
