One other piece of news came out of the WIAA’s Executive Board meeting Monday. The schedule for the 2011 Emerald City Kickoff Classic at Qwest Field was announced. The event will be held Sept. 3.

Oroville vs. Darrington at noon
North Mason vs. W.F. West at 3 p.m.
Coeur d’Alene vs. Moses Lake at 5:30 p.m.
Seattle Prep vs. Mercer Island at 8 p.m.
There aren’t many local teams playing in the event this season with Hazen, Seattle Prep and Mercer Island the only schools in our coverage area.
However, it is a chance to watch Islanders quarterback Jeff Lindquist, one of the top players in the state.
