A look back at Newport’s 17-10 win over Federal Way

I honestly thought we might see Chico McClatcher score his 100th touchdown this season.

Federal Way football coach marvels at Newport offense

John Meagher watched in awe as Newport ran past Lake Stevens in the opening round of the Class 4A state football playoffs last Saturday. Actually, the Knights ran through, over and around the Vikings, over and over again – all out of the same formation, the double-tight end wishbone, without variation. At one point, Meagher turned to…

A look back at the 2A, 1A, 2B, 1B state volleyball tournaments

Unfortunately, we were not able to send reporters to the state volleyball tournaments in Class 2A, 1A, 2B or 1B. Again, for complete results, please check the brackets here. Top-rankled Tumwater beat No. 3 North Kitsap 3-0 in the 2A championship match. But, boy, where the Thunderbirds pushed to the limit before that. They had to…

A look back at the 3A state volleyball tournament

It’s rarely easy to go through a season unbeaten in any high-school sport, particularly volleyball. And especially if you play a challenging schedule. So, coach Chris Leverenz admitted she felt as though she had a monkey on her back when top-ranked Auburn Riverside rolled into the 3A state tournament with an unblemished record. “I’ve been nervous like for…
