State rushing record falls in semifinal lossNovember 23rd, 2012 by nathan joyce
Capital’s Kai Van Sickle rushed for 167 yards as his Cougars
lost to the Lynden Lions 48-21 in a Class 2A state football
semifinal game at the Tacoma Dome on Friday.
The 6-foot, 190-pound senior finished the season with 2,768 yards to break the state’s single-season rushing record.
Interlake’s Jordan Todd, who is playing at Central Washington University, piled up 2,681 yards last season.
Earlier this season, Blaine’s Mario Gobbato rushed for 2,821, but a good chunk of that came in a Kansas tiebreaker, which is not normally considered a game in which stats count toward season totals. Gobbato had 2,661 yards through 10 games.
Van Sickle, who had 1,974 through eight weeks, scored 41 touchdowns
