OK, so I got the dart board out and managed to come up with the first state high-school volleyball rankings of the season for 4A, 3A and 2A.
When all is said and done, we’ll see if I managed a bulls eye or two, although I very well might miss the board in a lot of areas.
Last year, I correctly pegged the 3A and 2A champions in Prairie and West Valley of Yakima, but was off-target in 4A, where I went with Jackson over Mead and Bellarmine Prep. Instead, they finished in reverse order as Bellarmine beat Mead in the title match and Jackson finished third. (more…)

Ashley Allen is following her dream to coach volleyball at the collegiate level.
She has resigned her position at Jackson High School to become an assistant at Nicholls State University, a Division I school in Thibodaux, Louisiana.
You can read the Nicholls State announcement here.
Allen had an impressive three-year run as head coach for the Timberwolves, including that Class 4A state title in her first season. Since her sister, Emmy, was a senior on last year’s team (and now a freshman at WSU), I asked Ashley in the fall if she intended to return in 2013. She admitted at the time that she hoped to pursue a career coaching at the next level, but it had to be the right opportunity or else she intended to stay put.
This is apparently the start she is looking for.
Jackson has hired Mindy Staudinger as its new head coach. Staudinger, a Marysville-Pilchuck graduate who went on to play at Montana State, started the volleyball program at Marysville Getchell in 2011. I haven’t received word yet on who has taken her place at MG.

After 10 seasons, Jeannie Boyer has resigned as head girls basketball coach at Jackson High School.
Boyer said she and her husband, Joel, hope to have children and foresees a potential conflict in time commitments.
“I didn’t think I could be a good enough coach and a good enough mom, with the amount of hours you have to put in,” she said.
The Timberwolves finished 13-10 this past season and reached the Northwest 4A District tournament, despite losing junior Kelli Kingma to a knee injury in December. Kingma, who has committed to Washington, helped Jackson place fourth at the 4A state tournament in 2012.
Boyer said she will continue to support the team as a fan.
“It’s been a wonderful experience,” she said.
