From Staff Reports


The girls and boys basketball teams, along with the cheerleaders, celebrated their Senior Night on Feb. 2. The Lady Eagles dominated Rainier Beach, but the boys came up short in the final quarter. That didn’t dampen the love that was in the air for the Class of 2018. Coach Jerry Petty announced that C.J. Elleby and Jahleel Breland would have their jerseys retired at the end of the season.

After finishing in 3rd place in the Metro League tournament, the Eagles took on Eastside Catholic during the first round of the 3A SeaKing District Tournament at Ingraham. The winner was guaranteed a spot in the Regional round of the state tournament, but Cleveland fell to the Crusaders 74-62. The team will play O’Dea or Bellevue on Thursday at Sammamish.


Despite only winning three matches this season, the wrestling team had something to celebrate. Six male wrestlers qualified for Regionals at Nathan Hale and both girls on the team qualified for Regionals at Sedro-Wooley High School.

Makayla Carter, Makelle Mills, Rio Sandoval, Jeremy Troung, Dejovonnie Arns, Savion Galloway, Aram Gould and Alberto Quintanilla all made the trip with the top four from each weight class advancing to State.

Galloway and Gould advanced to the Tacoma Dome. The wrestlers will be competing in the State Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
