Greetings from Tacoma - third week on the road. It's the rest of the state versus the Tacoma area schools in the Dome. We'll find out if last year's finalist, Federal Way can ascend to the 4A throne vacated by Ferris. Kentridge, Todd Beamer, Curtis, Foss and Decatur make up nearly half of the field and AP Poll media voters' concensus was that this is where state power lies. Walla Walla (Beamer), Eisenhower (Curtis) and Gonzaga Prep (Decatur) face half of them. Lewis and Clark girls play Federal Way to open their title defense. Both the Bullpups and Tigers play late on Wednesday.
Here's Doug Pacey's take on the tournament from the News-Tribune in Tacoma.
I'll be in touch.
The B's are in Spokane where Northwest Christian is going for four in a row, Colfax, a former 1A power is hoping to crash the girls title party. 1A is in Yakima where Freeman girls are the lone local representative.
