The MEDLEY | High School Swim Blog

Pressler, Jackson coordinating a state run By Doug Drowley Special to The Seattle Times Maddie Pressler readily admits her shortcoming. “I am so uncoordinated, it’s not even funny,” the Jackson sophomore said. That the words come from a state champion, that’s the anomaly. But Pressler, the defending 4A 200-yard freestyle champion, quickly qualifies her remark. “On land,” she says. Pressler’s relative inability…

State girls basketball rankings — Week 8

All in all, it was a relatively quiet week across the state for prep girls basketball, at least in terms of what would be considered big “upsets” involving ranked teams. Oh, there were some ranked teams that lost, and a couple actually dropped out of the top-10 (Arlington in 4A and Wilson in 3A). I’m more excited…

Post-Ups: A brief guide to some local holiday girls hoop events

Happy holidays and welcome to the second edition of Post-Ups, my weekly blog notebook dedicated to high-school girls basketball.

This will be an abbreviated version and will have to get you through until Thursday, Jan. 9, when I’ll have the next installment as I am taking a few days off next week. There will be no new rankings until after the New Year as well. You can look for those on Monday, Jan. 6.

But you certainly don’t have to go through any hoop withdrawals between now and then. Sure, some teams are traveling to out-of-town tournaments. But there are several girls events on the docket in the area, including the massive Rebel Challenge at Juanita, which starts tomorrow.

There are tournaments at Snohomish and Kennedy Catholic as well. And you can check The Times website to find all kinds of games over the next week and a half.

Class 4A, 3A and 2A state volleyball rankings — Week 1

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.
