WSU taking part of fall camp to Lewiston
Washington State will spend the first portion of its preseason training camp in nearby Lewiston, a source close to the program confirmed Wednesday. The Moscow-Pullman Daily News was the first to report the move.
Exact dates haven't been established yet for WSU's trip to Lewiston, though an official announcement is expected after coach Mike Leach returns from media-day obligations on the east coast and in Los Angeles this week.
Construction at Martin Stadium is likely the primary factor in moving practices from Pullman. Only half of Rogers Field is available for use, and WSU split its team between Rogers and Martin Stadium during spring practices.
That's not quite as feasible during camp with more newcomers on hand, a time when coaches would likely prefer to keep the whole team within one, visible range.
Camp opens Aug. 2. A full schedule will likely be available next week.
