It is incorrect to state that Whitman "finished it's season." According to the Whitman website, although Whitworth did claim the automatic berth to the NCAA DIII tournament, Whitman could still claim an at-large berth.

I attended the game and as bad as I felt for Wa-Hi, you had to hand it to Chiawana for hitting the big shots (almost all of them!) in the fourth quarter. Besides, this was as close to a meaningless game as you could have, as Wa-Hi will likely meet the Riverhawks again next Saturday. They just have to get past the Richland/Pasco winner on Friday first. Go Devils!

Anyone know why sentences are always expressed in months, rather than years? Any legal eagles out there?

huntinwr 2 years, 7 months ago on Blue Devil girls edge Kamiakin, 52-55

Really have enjoyed watching the Wa-Hi kids this year, girls and boys. However, I wish to comment on the rudeness of many people who only show up for the boys game. They wander in during the last quarter of the girls game, find their seats and busy themselves catching up with their friends until the "real" game starts. They might want to note the girls are 17-2 while the boys have lost eight of the last 10. Both teams deserve the same support regardless of their record. Maybe they should switch it around occasionally and hold the boys game first. Then those people could leave and the real fans could cheer on the girls!

You've heard of the Sports Illustrated cover jinx, maybe there is a Jim Buchan column jinx as well. No sooner does he write up the Whit women's 11-1 record, they go and lose two in a row! Go Missionaries!

Is this historic? Has a 4A school ever lost to a 2B school? I thought it was a typo when I first saw the score listed.

"After all, the U-B rarely endorses anyone other than the incumbent." - except when it comes to Rich Cowan over Cathy McMorris-Rodgers!

Not to be a party-pooper, but wasn't Walla Walla founded in 1859? That would make the sesquicentennial three years ago.
