If you are a Safari user (like me), you might be having trouble with our on-line Sports page again today. But if you follow the links below, you should be able to read the stories, though you might have to scroll down to get to the type.

UPDATE: The problem has been fixed and everything is accessible.

The first link takes you to our GSL soccer roundup from today, which leads with Mead defeating G-Prep. There is also this roundup, which has a decided volleyball bent.

The Columbia Basin League football schedule gets started for real tonight, and the Tri-City Herald's Rene Ferran makes his picks.

Tri-City's Mark McKenna has a feature on Prosser linebacker Josh Beck. Yes, a story about a Mustang defender at the pass-happy school.

Friday is prep notebook day in Yakima, and this one leads with a West Valley (Yakima) linebacker who hopes to bounce back from a knee injury in time for the postseason.

As we mentioned earlier this week, Todd Beamer High was 2-0 going into Thursday night's game against Puyallup. Well the Heroes (that's my nickname for them, their real mascot is Titans) are 2-1 after a 30-7 whipping put on by the Vikings, winners of 22 consecutive regular-season games.

Speaking of streaks – and we were, weren’t we? – the Evergreen (Burien) girls soccer team snapped a 28-game winless streak Thursday.

There hasn't been a lot of football success at Monroe High recently, but the school has a new stadium, a new school and a 2-0 record going into tonight's game with Lake Stevens.

If you didn't know, there is a trophy awarded every year in the Tacoma School District to the football team that has the best record among the high schools. The Lincoln Abes (1-1) have won the last four, and could take a big step toward winning No. 5 with a victory tonight over Mount Tahoma (2-2).

Interesting story out of Boise, where Boise and Borah highs meet tonight. Both teams are coached by alums, and they met in this rivalry game back in the 1980s.

For you swim enthusiasts, here is a story from Kitsap about the Bainbridge swim team. Of course they are good, how else would you get around the Sound?
