Local athletes spark Whitworth’s success

PIRATES

Whitworth’s football team is one win away from a perfect regular season. The Pirates have already defeated Linfield for the first time since 1975, have won nine games to start the year for the first time and have clinched at least a tie for the Northwest Conference title.

And a big part of the success is a large contingent of players from the Greater Spokane League.

The group, as documented in Steve Bergum’s story, is led by quarterback Joel Clark (Mt. Spokane) and linebacker Casey Clifton (University). But there are many, many more key players from the Spokane league.

The eighth-ranked Pirates host Puget Sound on Saturday (12:30 p.m.; 1230-AM) with a chance to raise their record to 10-0.
