A couple Eagles fly during scrimmage


The Eastern Eagles have another week left of spring football, but, as Dave Trimmer writes, a couple of players have really caught the coaching staff's attention.

The Eagles will practice this week, then end the spring with the annual spring game next Saturday.

• Washington's spring practice is over, and despite Carl Bonnell playing well, the quarterback had no chance to move redshirt freshman Jake Locker from the starting role.

• June Daugherty is settling in for the long haul in Pullman as this Glenn Kasses' story shows.

• So is SID Rod Commons, if you stretch the definition of new to cover the past 30 years. Commons was recently elected to the SID Hall of Fame.

• The Gonzaga Bulldogs' Clayton Mortensen shut out USF on Saturday, giving the Zags a chance to win the series with a victory today. … Records fell like javelins at the Duane Hartman Invitational at SFCC. … Idaho picked up another basketball signee. For more on the restocking going on in Moscow, check Jim Meehan's blog. … PLU won the Northwest Conference baseball title, the schools first baseball crown in any league since 1954.
