I was out at the Sea-King 3A District Tournament Tuesday night and I was really impressed with O’Dea. The Irish are playing as well as anyone right now. It’s going to be fun to watch them play Rainier Beach tomorrow at Bellevue College.
Here’s my story, which features Rainier Beach’s win over Bellevue and includes a note on O’Dea’s win over Mercer Island.
