Know Thy Opponent: Cascade Christian
Good morning, Trojan fans. When we last left Cascade Christian, it was the 2010 semis in the Tacoma Dome. After shutting us out 21-0, they beat Connell for the 2010 1A state title. From 2011 to 2015, CCS is 50-9 with another state title and a second place finish. Good work if you can get it. ...

NWC 1A Wrapup & Beyond

All of NWC 1A now has at least 1 loss.  Everyone this week was playing out of conference, out of classification. Nooksack knocked the lacquer right off the Fighting Antiquers (hat-tip to RL) from LaConner (2B) with a 44-zip shutout.

Meridian Baseball Wins Tri-District Title

The Trojan Baseball team won its second straight Tri-District championship Saturday, beating top-ranked Chimacum 2-1 in 9 innings. Instead of the Trojans’ usual power hitting, they pulled off a good ole’ fashion manufactured run. Instead of a Zach Slesk game-winning homer, it was a single from cousin Tait Slesk. And it wasn’t any ordinary victory ...

Cascade Christian Game Photos Up

Most certainly a bitter/sweet posting.  Mrs. Appel has uploaded her album of photos from the game, as well as the team departing from Laurel that morning. In the clamor of the last week & a half, I forgot to mention and thank Nancy Slesk for also contributing several photo albums, including Kings and Stevenson.

Game Day (Eve) [Update]

It’s going to be an early jaunt to the game tomorrow morning (10AM, Tacoma Dome) thus this will be a pre-game eve post with a few updates later on. The team bus leaves at 5:45, and I understand there’s also a rooter bus.  Gates open at Tacoma tomorrow morning at 9AM before the 10:00 kickoff. ...

Cascade Christian:
The Tacoma News Tribune has a pre-game story on the Cougars this morning, “Cascade Christian’s Cougars hungry for title.” The team reports they are full healthy for the first time in a while, and health begets appetite.

Know Thy Opponent: Cascade Christian
The Mighty Tro-hahns squeaked past King’s and their tremendous duo of Vincent and Clauson.  We now face the wire-to-wire number 1 team in Class 1A, the Cascade Christian Cougars.  They don’t have 2 superstars.  They have 11. Meridian really has a shot in this one.  Cascade Christian has not played a team that can throw ...

The Other Games

Three other 1A quarterfinals games were played tonight.  Who knew there was a world outside of Laurel? On the westside, Cascade Christian beat Nooksack 32-20.  On one side of things, the score really wasn’t reflective of the game.  Two of Nooksack’s scores came after the Cougars began subbing, and following a CCS punt on 4th ...
