West Valley’s boys just keep winning


A quick cruise around the area’s prep scene, starting with Mike Vlahovich’s weekend .

Mike focuses on West Valley’s “surprise” ascension to the top spot among Greater Northern League boys teams.

The reason I put surprise in quotation marks is simple. I’m not a bit amazed, despite all the players the Eagles lost off last year’s team.

You take decent to great athletes, add in a basketball tradition, good coaching, a strong youth emphasis, great facilities and, to quote Emeril, bam, you’ve got a successful recipe. And West Valley’s boys basketball program has been cooking for years.

This year the Eagles (14-2, 10-0) are just doing it in the GNL instead of the Frontier, Border or Greater Spokane leagues.

• There is more on prep sports on Mike’s Prep Report blog and Greg Lee’s Idaho Prep Sports blog.

• Rene Ferran has some interesting comments about the weekend that was down in the Tri-Cities on his blog.
