The final weekend of state events in Washington and Idaho is here.
Click the tab below to see stories published in the paper today. I just arrived in Tacoma for the 4A and 3A boys and girls state tournaments.
I have to link to John Blanchette's piece on the Colton boys qualifying for state for the first time. Here it is. Blanchette is the finest writer in the Pacific Northwest and one of the best in the nation. I want to write like him when I grow up.
Here's a nice feature by “retired” Mike Vlahovich on West Valley's Brady Bagby, pictured above.
Dave Trimmer checked in with this good piece on the Northwest Christian boys.
And here's a look at the Idaho state boys basketball tournaments. Post Falls and Priest River hope to defend titles.
