Stags earn first state cross country trophy

November 8, 2011

The Deer Park boys cross country team ended its most successful season in historic proportions.
The Stags, ranked in the bottom half of the top 10 state rankings for the entire season, proved the pollsters wrong at the Class 2A state cross country championships on Saturday at the Twin Willows Golf Course in Pasco.
Deer Park finished the race in third place, the first time the program has ever earned a place on the awards stand reserved for the top four team placers. The Stags’ 148 points trailed only eventual champion Lindberg (112 points) and Sehome (113) in the team standings.

What is fast becoming a school tradition, Deer Park football coaches spent the final game of the regular season with one eye on the scoreboard and the other on their cellphones.

Rams have no answer for unstoppable Stags

November 1, 2011

The Deer Park football team had to rewrite its record book following a convincing 44-13 non-league win over Riverside on Friday.
The Stags, who saw Zach Mohr kick a school record 51-yard field goal in the second quarter, also used the offensive outburst to set a school mark for most points in a season (324). The win improved Deer Park’s overall record to 8-1, which tied the 1992 Stags for the best season start in school history after nine games.
“You never know how it’s going to go,” said Deer Park head coach Keith Stamps on his team’s strong start.
