RHS Track

On the second day of the State Meet, Brian Hutchison added a fourth place in the discus to his shot put second on Day One. Throwing conditions were less than ideal, with intermittent rain, cold and wind. Brian threw 157’5″ for 4th place, which prior to the start of the 2011 season would have been the Roosevelt school record.

On the track, Daniel Swanson ran an excellent race under adverse conditions to advance to the Saturday finals, to be run at 10:50, and a guaranteed podium spot.

Anthony Steinauer, while not advancing to the final, ran close to his PR in the 300 hurdle prelims. With less than one full season of hurdling experience, Anthony represented Roosevelt well in advancing to the State Meet.

Saturday is the final day of the State Meet. Peter Ianelli will throw the javelin at 10 am and Daniel Swanson competes in the 800 final at 10:50. Lucy Cheadle (Daniel’s prom date) will be competing in the 1600 final at 4:30.

RHS Baseball Coaches

JON HONGLADAROM, Varsity Assistant and Pitching CoachJon was a pitcher and shortstop and varsity team captain for Lakeside High School (class of 1978). He ended his baseball playing days after walking on at Stanford University (class of 1982) and astutely determined that he couldn’t throw quite the way John Elway could throw. Jon returned to Seattle, married his high school sweetheart (Jane), and obtained Law and MBA degrees from the University of Washington (1986). He currently practices construction law as a member of Foster Pepper PLLC. His two children (Jake and Karin) attended Roosevelt High School (classes of 2006 and 2008 respectively). Jake played baseball for RHS for 4 years and his sophomore year he bean Matt Tuiasosopo with his first Varsity pitch. Karin was MVP of the Roosevelt Varsity softball team her freshman year and them inexplicably, gave up softball for good. Jon coached regular season and All-Star Little League baseball and softball teams, and a variety of other youth sports for about 15 years while his children grew up. He was a volunteer coach for Roosevelt’s baseball team in 2003, and returned to doing so in 2010. His focus is working with pitchers (the aforementioned Tuiasosopo episode notwithstanding).

    Rider Sports Auction Rider Hall of Fame Sports Auction

    Rider Sports Auction Rider Hall of Fame Sports Auction
    Event Date: February 5th 5:30PM
    The Mountaineers Club 7700 Sandpoint Way NE

    Roosevelt High School encourages all students to participate in athletics, band and cheer squad, regardless of their ability to pay. We are proud of the fact that over 850 students participate in these programs each year.
    The Seattle School District budget for athletics shrinks every year. The goal of the auction is to raise enough funds to fill the gap between what the district provides and the needs of the teams. Our first auction was held in 2000 and we have been raising roughly $60,000 each year since.
    As you can see from the facts below, trying to fund 12 men’s and 12 women’s sports teams, as well as a marching band, cheer squad, and club sports, is costly!

  • Transporting one team to one sporting event costs $ 275
  • One vaulting box for the gymnastics team costs $ 2800
  • The cost to the band for one trumpet player is $ 300
  • The cost for one football player’s equipment is $400
  • These are only a few examples of what it costs to support these vital programs in high school. The NEED for this auction is clear, and our goals are simple.

  • To supplement the school’s athletic budget.
  • To stay on an even par with our competitors when it comes to coaching, equipment, uniforms, fields, and referees.
  • To keep students active and involved.

    Booster Auction – Saturday, February 5th 2011

    The RHS Sports Booster Auction will be held Feb. 5, 2011 at the Mountaineers Club at Sandpoint. The auction provides almost ½ of the total sports budget for Roosevelt including ½ of the trainer’s cost (provided through the district’s relationship with Children’s Hospital.

    In these times of economic downturn the funding to sports has been further reduced so the auction is even more important for our student athletes.

    The Hall of Fame auction is an annual event put on by the Roosevelt Athletic Boosters to benefit and promote all athletics at Roosevelt High School. The teams will receive half of the money raised by the items their team procures or donates and the other half will go into the Athletic Boosters general fund. Teams can use the team money at their discretion and the Athletic Boosters will use the general funds to continue to promote all athletic teams at Roosevelt High School.
