I’ve always said that just about anything can happen when it comes to high-school sports. There are generally few givens and it’s often hard to gauge what really constitutes an upset. That might especially be true in volleyball, and I thought it was interesting that two different coaches – Skyline’s Callie Wesson and Snohomish’s Alex Tarin –…

In case you missed it, Decatur got its first win of the football season Saturday against Kentridge. The final score was 72-54! No, that isn’t an SPSL 4A record.
