Entering the home stretch of fall sports | Around the Sound Sports podcast

As we inch closer to the end of the fall season, every game, meet and match grow in intensity. The Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center hosted the All-City meet between all four Federal Way schools. We talked to one swimmer from each school in Federal Way and got their own unique perspective on the meet. We then traveled to the brand-new Federal Way Memorial Field where Todd Beamer hosted Thomas Jefferson in girls’ soccer. Todd Beamer then hosted Auburn High School on the gridiron in a crucial 3A NPSL matchup that went the way of the Trojans, who remain undefeated in league play. And finally, we cap off this episode with Hazen ending a 10-game, 20-year losing streak to Liberty on the road.
