The baseball and softball teams slogged through the early weeks by playing every game on the road. Both teams seemed to be reaching their potential as they got outside to practice late in the season, but both failed to place high enough to extend their season into the District play-offs.
The WHS Boys Soccer team finished the regular season in third place in the Greater Saint Helens League. In the District Tournament the Panthers were defeated by Centralia in the first round, but bounced back to defeat W.F. West High School of Chehalis in a penalty kick shootout here at Fishback Stadium three days later. The Boys Soccer season ended with a defeat at the hands of Aberdeen on the road on May 12th in the 3rd round.
The Girls Golf team competes in the District Tournament this week. Coach Allen indicates that the players have been showing consistent improvement and is hopeful that we might send a player or two to State, which is coming up on May 24th and 25th.
The Tennis team had a productive season despite several weather related delays and a couple of soggy matches. The doubles team of Alexandra Reeves and Shelby DeLong have advanced to the District tournament on May 20th and 21st. Congratulations and Good Luck!
The boys and girls Track and Field teams have continued to shine brightly through the dark and dreary rain this spring. The Sub-District Meet concluded last Friday with 20 Panther athletes qualifying for the District Meet in Longview on May 20th. Highlights from the Sub-District meet include school record performances by Brendan Casey who went 15’ 3” in the Pole Vault, and Kelley Young who ran 15.64 in the 100M Hurdles. The State Meet is the next goal for the Panther Track athletes. They must finish in the top three at District to qualify for the meet on May 26th, 27th, and 28th.
. Brendan Casey reached 15'3" in the Pole Vault; and
. Kelley Young had a time of 15.64 in the 100-meter Hurdles.
The Panther Girls' Track Team won their third straight League Championship
and have not lost a league meet in over three years (14 Straight league
wins). The Panther Boys Track Team took second for the second year in a
row. Way to go Panthers!

Cape Horn-Skye Elementary and Canyon Creek Middle School were recently awarded Level 1 certification by the Washington Green Schools Team.
To fulfill the requirements for Level 1, students and staff have worked hard to conserve energy by turning off lights when they leave the rooms; closing the blinds at night; and turning off computers, projectors, and other electrical devices before they leave for the day. They also have implemented a successful composting program using the food scraps from lunches.
Pictured (left to right) are Stacie Cuff, CCMS student representative; Lori Schilling, CCMS teacher; Mary Lou Woody, principal of Cape Horn-Skye; Cindy Coons, teacher at Cape Horn-Skye; and Greg Hayward, Washington Green Schools Team representative.
