Sammamish Dentist donates Custom Mouth Guards to 7/8 Green Team

The Skyline Spartans 7/8 Green team received a special bonus this week - custom mouth guards for every player on the team - a great donation to the Spartan Green from the office of Dr Anna Lisin!  Nothing is better than a custom fitted mouth guard for player protection.  Mouth guards are not only there to protect the players teeth and tongue, they are an integral part of protecting players from concussion.

If you are interested in having your player custom fitted, you can learn more about Dr Lisin's practice on her Website.

What? Really??

OK, call me a tad old-fashioned. 

Caught this weekend at a pre-season CWU-SU matchup in Seattle:  the ref is using an iPhone coin toss app to start the game... i know it's preseason and all....

Spartan Alum Jeremy Veilleux & CWU Wildcats in town

This weekend saw Skyline Spartan Lax alum Jeremy Veilleux (#8) and his CWU Wildcats take on Seattle University in pre-season action.  There was some great play on both sides and Jeremy laid on one of the best wrap checks i have seen in a long time; think the clearing midfielders stick came down somewhere in Lake WA.

It's always great to see our alums in action on local turf!
