ANDY ENDERS

Kentlake

• Grade: Junior.

• Sport: Baseball.

• Accomplishments: Enders made a big run-saving catch in the top of the fifth inning with two outs and runners on first and third base in last Friday’s Class 4A state semifinal game against Richland. The catch likely saved two Richland runs that would have given the Bombers a four-run lead, and the Falcons rallied to win in the bottom of the seventh, 5-4. Enders picked up the win in relief, throwing a scoreless seventh inning.

• Favorite class: Spanish.

• If you could invite anyone in the world to dinner, whom would you invite, and what would you serve?: I would invite Demitri Martin, and we would have spaghetti.

• Also noted: Enders plays baseball for the SBA Buzz. He wants to attend Washington State University and go into communications. He has played baseball since he was 3.

LEWIS LARSON

Kentlake

• Grade: Junior.

• Sport: Baseball.

• Accomplishments: Larson delivered the game-winning single in the bottom of the seventh inning, giving Kentlake a 5-4 victory against Richland in a Class 4A state semifinal game last Friday. Larson’s line drive to the gap in right-center with one out would have gone for extra bases had the Falcons needed more than just the one run.

• Favorite class: History.

• If you could invite anyone in the world to dinner, whom would you invite, and what would you serve?: I would invite Peyton Manning, LeBron James and Babe Ruth. We would eat at Kemi Teriyaki.

• Also noted: Larson is looking forward to his third season playing quarterback for Kentlake, and wants to play football in college.

ZACH SMITH

Kentlake

• Grade: Junior.

• Sport: Track.

• Accomplishments: Smith flew 23 feet, 3 inches to win the Class 4A long jump title in the Star Track state meet last weekend in Pasco.

• Favorite class: Ceramics.

• If you could invite anyone in the world to dinner, whom would you invite, and what would you serve?: I would invite Borat, and would serve Kemi Teriyaki.

• Also noted: Smith competes in track year-round, both outdoors and indoors.
