Saturday’s news includes violations and a transfer


As we all know, it's Saturday morning.

And as we all probably know, there's a Shock game tonight – speaking of the Shock, they host Everett tonight at 7. Here's a link to Jessica Brown's story, her blog and a link to the Everett Herald advance – so that means a long day ahead for ViceGrip (yah, I'm trying some of the nickname suggestions out).

So we're going to hit the highlights this morning and move on.

• DeAngelo Casto is transferring from Ferris to Franklin High in Seattle. Here is a story from the Times.

• Eastern Washington University has turned itself in to the NCAA for possible violations in the basketball program. Dave Trimmer has the whole story here, with more on his blog. UPDATE: Here is Eastern's entire report sent to the NCAA.

• Speaking of Eastern, the Eagles have a guy who really wants the job: former USD coach Brad Holland. I hope Holland gets it. Then I can spend the next few years telling my Brad-Holland-at-Crescenta-Valley-High stories. And I've got a lot of them.

• Glenn Kasses had another story in the works before he left and it ran in today's golf section. It's about the remodeling going on at WSU's course. And, for you Cougar fans wanting a football fix, here's a link to a story mentioning recruit Romeo Pellum of Santa Fe High in Southern California. Pellum plays in the annual 605 All-Star Football Classic tonight.

• Washington's softball team has moved into what's basically the semifinals of the womens' College World Series. The Huskies will play Tennessee Sunday (the Volunteers edged Arizona early Saturday morning), with the winner waiting in the finals for someone to emerge from the consolation bracket.
