The next few weeks were made for state tournaments


The next four weekend’s in Washington will be filled with state tournaments, starting with wrestling and gymnastics this weekend, then moving on with three consecutive basketball weekends.

Mike Vlahovich looks ahead to all the fun (or in his case, work) in his Monday morning notebook.

• For more prep news, check Mike’s blog and Greg Lee’s Idaho Prep Sports blog.

• The 4A state wrestling tournament is always tough for Eastern Washington schools to win due to the paucity of berths for this side of the state. But another reason is the strength of teams like Lake Stevens, champs in 1990, 2000, 2001 and 2004. The Vikings will be sending 13 wrestlers to the tournament this year.
