As the fall sports are getting into the start of the season, we interviewed players from the teams about how they think their season will go. 

Jacob Kaepernick (11) is a captain on the football team as well as the starting quarterback; he has been playing football for six years. Alongside football Kaepernick also plays baseball in the spring and summer time. This helps him stay in shape and compete at a high-level throughout the year in both sports. After the football team’s first game Kaepernick said, “there’s always thing the team can work on, but the game was exciting there was a good crowd and it was nice to get a overtime win against Nooksack.” Kaepernick also mentioned that he has lots of confidence in the young athletes, “If we play our game this year, we will make it far,” Kaepernick said.  All in all, Kaepernick sounded pleased in the football team and is looking forward to this season. 

Haley Henderson (11) is a captain on the slow pitch team as well as a key player on the Fastpitch team. Henderson plays and practices these sports year-round. The slow pitch teams next game is on October 5th. “I’m excited and ready to see where the teams at for the beginning of our season we have young athletes, but I think that everyone will be ready.”Henderson said. She is super enthusiastic about the returning team and the new players. She’s ready to see how the team works together. 

Kiley Thramer (11) is a star player and teammate on the unified bowling team. The team only has one meet a season until then they just practice and work together. “The meets are always very positive and each person bowls with a partner,” Thramer said.  The team’s goals for this season are to make it to postseason and bowl as much as they can. Add more maybe when there on meet is and where.
