We started the week off at Pacific, finished it up at Skyridge. Here’s a quick recap.
Things looked a little dark at the midway point in our first meet at Pacific after a rough first oral round that left us trailing by two points. But the kids did us proud in the second half, making some nice adjustments, showing some grit in the second oral round, and coming out on top in the end. Skyridge won the overall meet on points, 194 to 169 for Pacific, but top honors go to Skyridge 2 (our Skyridge Delta team), who took first place at the meet with a total of 73 points. Sky Delta is made up of 6th graders Ali and Brett, 7th graders Thomas and Claire, and 8th graders Addison and Jason.
On Thursday we took on Liberty and Frontier for our first home meet of the season. Spirited competition and performances in the written round set up a showdown in the oral matches with the always tough Lions of Liberty and the Silverbacks of Frontier. In the end, Liberty proved to be too much, besting Skyridge with a total score of 189 to our 157 (Frontier with 101), but Skyridge was able to place one of its teams in the top three. Skyridge 2 (our Skyridge Alpha team), made up of 6th graders Tate, Mark, Andrew, and Anna, 7th grader Chase, and 8th graders Devank and Maia earned a total of 62 points, only 6 away from 2nd, 10 away from 1st. Not too shabby.
I’m proud of all of the teams who competed this week for having fun, working as a team, and representing Skyridge and Camas with pride and style. Way to go, Sky Kbowl.
Looking ahead, we have meets next week on Tuesday at Frontier (Delta, Eta, and Zeta) and Thursday at home (Alpha, Gamma, and Epsilon).
