Triple Play: Softball notes on Snohomish, Kennedy Catholic and a mother/daughter duel

It’s time for another edition of Triple Play, my weekly blog notebook dedicated to softball, and there’s a new twist this time around. The first segment is on a fun situation involving a mother-daughter duo – who squared off against each other on Monday. Jennifer England is the coach at Kent-Meridian and her daughter, Taylor Lott,…

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

I am finally back with some updated state high-school volleyball rankings for Class 4A, 3A and 2A. Thanks for your patience.

And, yes, I am calling these the Week 3 rankings even though I was unable to update them in week 2. It’s the third week of the regular season, so I think that makes the most sense.

I have been out of the volleyball loop recently and admit I don’t have a real good grasp on how to size up teams just yet. Tournaments are often not the best gauge this early, because some coaches juggle their lineups just to get kids some playing time, for one thing.

I do still pretty comfortable with the No. 1 teams in all three classifications — Bellarmine Prep (4A), Southridge (3A) and West Valley of Yakima (2A). All remain intact.

You’ll find the biggest change for any of the three comes in 3A, where Mount Si — which I had at No. 2 to start the season — falls completely out of the top-10, for now at least. The Wildcats are going through some growing pains, and some physical pains as well. They lost to surprising Interlake recently and were up and down at the Kent Classic — where Bellarmine Prep beat Central Catholic of Oregon in the title match, 25-21, 25-16. Both are nationally ranked.

Mercer Island climbs a notch to No. 2.

Triple Play: Softball notes on Jeff Skelly’s pursuit of win No. 400 with Inglemoor fastpitch, Tahoma’s change of tactics and Kennedy Catholic’s fresh look

In this week’s Triple Play, you’ll find out how coach Jeff Skelly started his trek toward 400 fastpitch victories at Inglemoor (he needs just one more). And I’ve checked in with a pair of unbeaten teams — Tahoma, which is doing things a little differently this season, and Kennedy Catholic, which is relying heavily on…
