Monday prep thread

Well, the holidays are in the rear view mirror. That means we’re back to work at prep central. Not sure what the new year will bring for me, what with this combined Eastern Washington/North Idaho prep gig. But I’m excited nonetheless.

Anyway, use this thread to get caught up on what transpired over the break.

Here’s a link to the girls basketball standings.

Prep Page Thursday

It’s a sad day here at The S-R. We’re saying so long to a good friend and classy teammate, Mike Vlahovich. Here is his final column. My wish is I can work as late in life as he did. But with the industry the way it is now, that’s probably mere hope.

I try to explain how we will go forward without Vlahovich and honor the man here.

Here’s a feature on Cheney multiple sport standout DeAngelo Jones.

And a quick glance at Great Northern League boys and girls basketball.

The annual Tri-State wrestling tournament is Friday and Saturday at North Idaho College. Here’s a preview.

Monday: What’s up in preps

Here’s your Monday thread.

Lots of good things to chat about. How about Robby Douglas at Shadle Park? He’s off to a hot start. The Gonzaga Prep boys keep rolling along. I witnessed the Mead/Coeur d’Alene girls game. Many turnovers but entertaining nonetheless. Mead will have to use its quickness to overcome it’s glaring liability - lack of size in the post. Over at Central Valley, area grapplers squared off with University and Coeur d’Alene placing second and third respectively.

Chat away.

Wrestling, wrestling and more …

Our Prep Page featured stories and glances on area wrestling including this feature on the ever-talented Jacob Trotter of Mead. Trotter is pictured above (right).

Here’s a glance at Greater Spokane League and Great Northern League teams and individuals.

Fall prep sports officially over

Fall prep sports officially ended with the conclusion of the 4A state football game late Saturday evening.

And what a game it was. Skyline is arguably the best team I’ve seen in 25 years of covering prep sports for The Spokesman-Review. I realize most of those years were spent in North Idaho, but I think you get the point.

So now we head inside for girls and boys basketball and wrestling. Not a minute too soon either!

So here’s a thread to start the week. Feel free to talk about the just-completed fall season or offer some thoughts on early basketball results.

Just one reminder: Keep the conversation civil.

If you missed it in the paper . . .

Here are the Greater Spokane League all-league photos and here is the link to the entire list of area all-league teams. The teams are chosen by the league coaches. We also have the North Idaho all-league teams and the all-league photos. We apologize for the delay.

Sandpoint in title game

Congrats to the Sandpoint football team. The Bulldogs (9-2) will take on Blackfoot (10-1) Friday at 7 p.m. at the Kibbie Dome in Moscow for the 4A state championship.

Vikings fall to Eagle

Coeur d’Alene and Eagle hooked up in an entertaining State 5A semifinal Friday night at Viking Field. The game had a little of everything — snow, big plays from both offenses and the lead flip-flopped back and forth — but it was Eagle escaping with a 25-21 victory that ended CdA’s season.

Idaho basketball legend dies

Ozzie Kanikkeberg died Friday at the age of 83. He was best known as a small-school basketball icon, having won 660 games during his 46-year coaching career — with 42 of those seasons coming at Genesee. His career win total is probably a state record.
