EWU volleyball coach Kydd resigns

Four matches into his fifth season, Eastern Washington volleyball coach Miles Kydd has resigned, the school announced Tuesday afternoon.

Kydd, the Big Sky Conference coach of the year in his first season in 2008, is leaving for personal reasons, athletic director Bill Chaves said in a statement

State 1A all-tourney volleyball team

Steve Bain, head coach at King's, and Kim Grycel, Lynden Christian's coach, polled the 1A coaches whose teams were at state to select an all-tournament team. “This effort comes about because the media folks that have compiled all-state volleyball teams in the past did not do it this year,” Bain said in an email. “The 1A coaching community felt strongly that this oversight needed to be corrected.”

Two area athletes were selected. Sierra Pancho of Newport was a first team pick. Jacy Vining and Joelee Buckner of Colville were named honorable mention.

Mead VB knocked off

Jackson knocked off defending 4A state volleyball champion Mead 3-1 in the semifinals. Jackson will face Issaquah in the final tonight. Mead will take on Olympia for third.

In 2A, West Valley and Pullman each won first-round matches today. 3A openers under way.

Thursday, preps

PREPS, updated

The fall sports season doesn’t get much busier around here than the last couple of weeks. But as a few of our football teams fall by the wayside and volleyball and soccer wrap up in the next couple of weeks, things will slow down momentarily until … basketball starts at the end of the month.

Not much transition between seasons. In fact, girls basketball in Idaho tips off this weekend.
