GSL boys In the North Central boys’ string of nine straight state championships, the Indians have had just two individual champions – Ben Johnston and Tanner Anderson twice.

NC, ranked No. 1 in the coaches’ preseason rankings, has won 47 straight duals. … Mt. Spokane pushed NC last year, finishing runner-up in league. University finished third and Central Valley was fourth. With the graduation of John Dressel, Mt. Spokane will likely slip a spot or two. The Wildcats bring back junior Hayden Dressel, who took 10th and is the highest returning state placer in the GSL. … Knight expects U-Hi and CV to be in the mix. … Central Valley lost five to graduation, but coach Kieran Mahoney says “we are young but talented.” Mahoney also sees Mead and Lewis and Clark fighting for a top-half finish. … University, ranked fourth in the coaches’ preseason poll, returns seniors Hunter Simpson (22nd at state last year) and Isaac Barville (28th). … Lewis and Clark is led by junior Zak Kindl (32nd). … Four years ago Rogers had four out for cross country. This season the Pirates have 35 led by senior Roberto Lopez.

Satini Puailoa returned for his second stint as Sandpoint’s head coach in 2012 and the season opener offered a memorable, telling moment. The Bulldogs punted against East Valley and the Knights started hollering “Peter,” so their players would steer clear of the bouncing football.
