Avery Jacobson, Roosevelt boys soccer. Jacobson started off the season with a hat trick in the Roughriders’ 5-3 win over Federal Way. He added two more goals against Lakeside and Eastside Catholic.
Josh Braverman, River Ridge track and field. Braverman is already No. 1 in the state in two track and field events, regardless of classification. He finished the 110-meter hurdles in 14.61 seconds, which is a new PR for Braverman and beats last year’s Class 2A championship time. Braverman also completed the 300-meter hurdles in 40 seconds at the Rainier Icebreaker Invitational.
Ryan Shaw, Lakeside baseball. Shaw led the Lions to two wins last week. Against Renton, he was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate with five RBIs and four runs scored, including one homer. The Richmond commit also went 3-for-4 against Franklin with three RBIs and one run scored.
Sophie Frost, Jackson softball. Frost tossed a 15-K, no-hitter in the Timberwolves’ season opener victory against Woodinville. She also struck out five batters in 3 ½ innings against Inglemoor and went 4-for-4 at the plate against Edmonds-Woodway.
Anna Kasner, Fife softball. Kasner was a menace in the circle and at the plate last week. She struck out 13 batters in six innings of work, shutting out Auburn Mountainview. Kasner also went 3-for-4 with a triple and one run scored.
Sergei Jacobs, Seattle Prep boys lacrosse. Jacobs scored 15 goals last week en route to three Panther wins. His most impressive performance was against Bothell, where Jacobs recorded six goals, one assist, and eight ground balls.
