With a decisive win over Darrington, the Wolverines (2-1) will have momentum on their side when they face league-leading La Conner, at home, Friday, Sept. 26; kick off is 6:30 p.m.
One aspect Coach Richard Ledford is fairly unfamiliar with is the lack of depth on this year’s roster. Only 38 players turned out this year; Ledford is more used to a team with 50.
The Wolverines this year face all four Northwest 2B League opponents three times each, in the past they’ve played each other twice.
With experience, size, numbers (30 players turned out for the team) and perhaps the most well-conditioned squad in the league, the stars are aligned for the 2014 Wolverines.
First-year coach Nadine Varsovia has about a dozen players on the junior varsity squad who, with a little time, attention and fine-tuning, will help keep the program at its elevated pitch.

Several changes are in store for the 2014 marathon, Sunday, June 22: a new course, still with plenty of hills, and start and finish lines at Lakedale Resort, a first-time host of the event. The Marathon and the Three Lakes Triathlon will both take place June 22, for the first time as well.

Meeker finished second overall among 36 players competing in the women's field of the Tri-District, Tuesday, May 20, at Gold Mountain Golf Course in Bremerton, three strokes behind Tri-District champion Hannah Hoh of King's High School. The 16 players with the lowest scores advance to State.

The Friday Harbor softball team shook off the rust, fired up the offense and left Concrete in the dust to seal a 14-11 win, notching its highest-scoring output of the season along with the victory.
At the top of the batting order, leadoff hitter Casey Rothlisberger, 2-of-4 at the plate, scored two runs, Gabe Lawson had two hits and a pair of runs as well, and Amer Melic was 2-of-3 at the plate and added three runs.

Friday Harbor snapped a scoreless tie and grabbed a 1-0 lead in the third inning after Cooper-West and junior Peter Holt swatted back-to-back singles, and Gabe Lawson and Amer Melic each drew a walk to send Cooper-West across home plate with the Wolverines first run of the contest. But that narrow lead wouldn't last...
