Nothing out of ordinary for today, except these stories


The usual Thursday.

Stayed up too late last night watching "Lost," and got started late today (insert your own snapping line about me being lost here).

Anyhow, Thursday is Prep Page day at the S-R and there aren't many left this season. So we'll get right at them.

In Idaho, the lead story is about Coeur d'Alene softball standout Kylie Chandler. There is also a Prep Profile on Bonners Ferry's Casey Hampton, a state track advance and a feature on Lake City's baseball team.

From Washington you can read Mike Vlahovich's column, Quick Hits and a Prep Profile from Steve Bergum on Lewis and Clark golfer (via St. George's) Chessey Thomas. The main piece, from Dave Trimmer, is about Mt. Spokane pole vaulter Jordan Roskelley, who is scaling heights even her father can't top (couldn't resist). There is also a roundup of Wednesday's action.

You can find more on Greg's blog and Mike's blog.

• The News Tribune features a story about Auburn's 6-foot-5 shortstop/pitcher Troy Scott, who is one of the brighter prospects in the state.

• An interesting tennis snafu from the West Side is documented here.

• This isn't high school sports, but it is high school-aged sports. The Missoulian has a story about Montana's best girls' basketball club team.
