The state football playoffs start on both sides of the border this weekend (well, in Washington it’s really not the playoffs, it’s the final game of the regular season for some teams and a play-in game for others).
In Idaho, Lake City and Coeur d’Alene will play a rematch of their error-filled 21-18 regular-season LC win (pictured; Spokesman-Review photo by Jesse Tinsley).
In Washington, the 4A play-in games between the Greater Spokane League and the Columbia Basin League are set (and you can find the matchups here) while East Valley’s 3A CBL opponent will be determined Tuesday.
The state cross country meet is this Saturday in the Tri-Cities, with Mead and Ferris the boys 4A favorites). The Panthers edged the Saxons by one second to win the boys regional crown last Saturday. The regional volleyball is also this weekend, and three-time defending state champion Mead will enter as the District 8 champion.
