Playoff play earns headlines


A quiet Monday night in the Inland Northwest was punctuated by some important girls basketball playoffs on both sides of the border.

In Idaho, Clark Fork moved on in the 1A District 1 playoffs, while in Washington, the Bi-County girls’ teams swept their Panorama counterparts in the District 7 2B playoffs.

• The Sideline Smitty column in today’s Times is all about Roosevelt High girls’ basketball coach Bill Resler, a different type of high school coach. If that intrigues you, you’ll have to read the column.

Also in the Times today, the paper’s prep page day, is a piece on the physical nature of gymnastics, and an account of Chief Sealth’s first win over Rainier Beach in boys play since 2001. The paper also has its state big school basketball rankings.

• Oak Harbor lineman Will Hunter (6-foot-5, 310-pounds) committed to walk on at Eastern Washington.
