SPENCER BALDWIN

Kentlake

• Grade: Junior.

• Sport: Baseball.

• Accomplishments: Baldwin went 2 for 3 with a double, one run scored and three RBIs as Kentlake rolled into the Class 4A state tournament last Saturday with a five-inning 16-6 rout of Beamer in West Central District play. The Falcons will be making their second state appearance in school history.

• Favorite class: Audio engineering.

• If you could invite anyone in the world to dinner, whom would you invite, and what would you serve?: I would invite either Jessica Alba or my mom – it’s a tough call. I’d be on the grill serving up a five-star steak and lobster meal.

• Also noted: Baldwin is the captain of the 18U Kent Bulldogs baseball team. He plans to attend college in Washington or California, and says, “I enjoy just kicking back with my bros.”

RACHEL MEIS

Tahoma

• Grade: Senior.

• Sport: Track.

• Accomplishments: Meis won the 200 meters in 25.60 seconds last Saturday in the SPSL 4A sub-district meet. That time was her best of the season by 88 hundredths of a second and thrust her onto the state’s Class 4A top-10 list in that event.

• Favorite class: Physics.

• If you could invite anyone in the world to dinner, whom would you invite, and what would you serve?: I would invite my family, and we would go to Jimmy Mac’s for unlimited rolls.

• Also noted: Meis has a 4.0 grade-point average. She is a National Merit finalist, has earned the Congressional Silver Medal, and plans to study engineering at George Fox University in Oregon.

CHAD BURGESS

Tahoma

• Grade: Sophomore.

• Sport: Soccer.

• Accomplishments: Burgess made saves on two of Beamer’s five tries in the penalty kick shootout, helping the Bears beat the Titans in an SPSL playoff game, 1-0, and advance to West Central District.

• Favorite class: Psychology.

• If you could invite anyone in the world to dinner, whom would you invite, and what would you serve?: I would invite Al Pacino and would serve spaghetti.

• Also noted: Burgess plans to attend college on the East Coast.
