Mead’s feat tops an unmatched fall prep season


Four consecutive big-school team titles.

It happened twice this fall to Spokane-area schools. Last weekend it was the Ferris boys cross country team. This weekend the Mead girls volleyball team.

And Saturday, Mead’s feat was something that had never been done before in state volleyball, a big school winning four titles in a row.

But the Panthers weren’t the only area winners. Colfax topped Lakeside in the 1A title match for a third consecutive crown – and the Bulldogs’ seventh overall. In the 2B ranks, La Conner finished its season perect while Sprague-Harrington won the 1B title.

In soccer, Mead handed Richland its first loss of the season and the Panthers moved into the state semifinals next weekend.

And the area had some football success, with Colville moving on in the state playoffs.

There were some area losses, of course, including Idaho’s Timberlake and Mullanand Washington’s Lakeside.

This last note: girls basketball began in North Idaho.
