This week in preps


A lot - and I mean a lot - going on in area sports this week. Idaho finished up all of its fall sports last weekend with Coeur d'Alene's boys winning the 5A state cross country championship and the CdA girls taking second. Timberlake's girls won a third consecutive 3A title, and the Post Falls volleyball team garnered a runner-up state finish.

FOOTBALL: The 4A and 3A play-in games are this Friday. Davis won the 3-way tiebreaker Tuesday and will meet Mead on Friday at Albi Stadium at 5:30.

In crossovers, Gonzaga Prep goes to Wenatchee and Lewis and Clark travels to Richland. Both are Friday at 7.

The Great Northern League concludes Thursday with a big game - Cheney at West Valley. Deer Park, Cheney and WV are all moving on to postseason, but the league title and seeding are still to be decided.

In Idaho, Coeur d'Alene plays host to Mountain View of Meridian on Friday. while Lake City travels to Eagle after beating Post Falls and Lewiston in a tiebreaker Monday. It's unbelievable that Lake City is in the playoffs for a 15th straight year. This could be the third-worst LC team in school history. I know, I've seen them all. Let's put it this way: it's the least talented team to make the playoffs.

VOLLEYBALL: The 4A Regional tourney is Saturday at Mead and the 3A Regional is at West Valley of Yakima.

CROSS COUNTRY: The Washington state meeets are Saturday at Sun Willows Golf Ccourse in Pasco.

So lots going on. Here's your thread to start talking.
