GSL girls sweep, boys split in 4A regional play


We shared with you our thoughts on Angie Bjorklund's final Spokane high school game last night so now we'll share our thoughts about the rest of the results of the Conagra Foods/LambWeston 4A regional.

No, we won't cuss.

With only three berths to state – isn't it nice there was a new classification added and Eastern Washington's big schools still only receive three berths? – on the line, the Greater Spokane League's girls have assured themselves of at least two of them after all four teams won last night.

The boys won twice, but all the Ferris and Mead wins did was assure a third game between them Friday at 7 p.m. in Kennewick with a state berth on the line. Shadle Park and Gonzaga Prep (whose loss to Ike is covered here) will play at the same time in a loser-out game. The Ferris-Mead loser will meet the Shadle-Prep winner Saturday at 1 p.m. with the survivor playing for a state berth at 7 that night.

So let's recap. After the first night of play, the GSL qualified three teams to state (one boy, two girls). We just don't know which teams yet.

• We would have stories from Tri-City, but they don't post until later in the day. Rene Ferran does have some tidbits on a blog post.

• In other basketball play around the area, the Idaho boys moved closer to state, with Lewiston eliminating Lake City in 5A play and Bonners Ferry qualifying for the 3A tournament.

• On the Washington side of the border, Lakeside won in overtime against Chelan in 1A regional play.
