On Tuesday, May 16, the Boys Varsity Soccer Team continued their successful run with a 3-0 over Hoquiam High School to advance to the 1A State Soccer Quarter Finals.
The pressure was placed on Hoquiam in the opening minutes of the game, as Bush tested their defense in hopes of gaining an early lead. Their efforts paid off only a few minutes later, when central defender Hugo C. took advantage of a well-placed set piece and headed the ball to the far post, past the keeper.

The Bush Boys Varsity Soccer team won it's first ever Bi-District Championship with a 2-1 win over King's School.
The game started well for Kings, who came out with a lot of energy. The Bush defense was tested early by a series of set pieces and attacks. After the first ten minutes, Bush began winning more possession and looked to exploit the Kings back line. Soon enough, they had their goal from freshman Kai K., who split the two Kings center backs with a diagonal run and beat the keeper one-on-one.
The Bush Middle School Golf Team had an outstanding showing at yesterday's CrossTown Middle School League Golf Championship Tournament at Jefferson Park. Congratulations to Wesley S. who defended his title from last year and won this year's boys' championship.
After dropping their first game in the Bi-District Tournament against Lynden Christian last Saturday, the Blazers bounced back to win a 1-0 nailbiter on Monday morning against Nooksack Valley High School.
