The 2012 Schedules for all three teams are updated. Click on the "Schedule/Results" tab. There should be several non-League matches added.

Summer Camps

Anyone that is interested in attending a volleyball camp during August should consider the camps run at the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma by Coach Mark Massey. There are plenty of spaces still available in all camps:

August 6th-9th (1:30-4:30pm) - Setter/Hitter Academy
August 6th-9th (5:30-8:00pm) - Competition Camp
August 10th-11th (9:00am-4:30pm) - Complete Player
August 10th or 11th - Specialty Mini-camps

I've been smiling so much, my face hurts!

The Seattle Times is running an Olympic's Diary from former Kentlake star Courtney Thompson about her experiences in London during the Olympics. It should be good reading.

July 26th: "We're in London"
July 31st: "Reliving the Opening Ceremony"
August 3rd: "Family"

Jefferson Match Moved to TJ

Falcon Night will be September 19th. The home volleyball contests scheduled for that date will be changed to "away" contests at Thomas Jefferson.


All athletic registration forms need to be turned in between 9:00—12:00 and 1:00—3:00 p.m. on Monday, August 13 or Wednesday, August 15. Before turning out for volleyball, you must purchase an ASB Card ($30.00), clear all fines, and complete a physicalregistration form and emergency card. Forms are available in the Main Office, Student Services Office and Athletic Office.

If you turned in a physical form at Kentlake last year, (dated after June 1, 2011, so once every two years), you do not need a new physical. Incoming 9th graders must have a school physical for High School Sports completed after June 1, 2012. Physicals from middle schools do NOT carry over.

ALL student athletes will need to turn in the athletic registration form and the emergency card at registration. If you are out of town on these two athletic registration days, you may have someone else register for you. Be sure to send a check for the ASB card ($30.00) OR pay online prior to the registration day, along with the athletic registration forms.

Volleyball tryouts will begin on Monday, August 20 (5pm to 7pm) and will continue on Tuesday, August 21st (9am to noon). Athletes who do not turn in all forms on August 13 or 15 will not be eligible to practice on the first day. The Athletic Participation Fee ($100, $50 if you receive reduced lunch) must be paid BY Monday, August 27 for ALL athletes (volleyball is a "cut" sport so the fee is not required until after the teams are announced). You may pay online with a credit card or at the Cashier’s Office with cash or check. The online payment option is available starting August 9.

Directions for online payments:
  • Go to
  • Enter the student ID number, birthdate and home phone number for EACH student you plan to purchase fees/items for.
  • Make sure “All Categories” is selected in the drop down box under the school name.

Thompson Named to US Olympic Team

Former Kentlake star Courtney Thompson was nominated today to the US Olympic Team for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. The team must still be approved by the US Olympic Committee, but that is a formality. She will join Lindsey Berg in the setting duties. Thompson was instrumental in helping the US National Team to the World Grand Prix title this last weekend as they finished undefeated over the four week tournament. The US Olympic Team will train in Anaheim until they depart for London. Their first match is July 28th. Thompson led Kentlake to three straight State Championships from 2000 to 2002, dropping only one match in the three years.
