WIAA: Lacrosse voted down again, ECKC matchups set

For the fourth year in a row, amendments to make boys and girls lacrosse varsity sports were voted down by the WIAA Rep Assembly. The boys vote failed 35-0 and the girls vote was defeated 33-2.

This says more about the financial state of school districts than the legitimacy of lacrosse as a sport, in my opinion.

One notable amendment that passed implements a running clock in the second half of football games with a 40-point differential. Previously, the running clock started when one team led by 45 points or more.

Rep Assembly members submitted votes online this year.

Also, here are the matchups for the Emerald City Kickoff Classic, Sept. 3 at Qwest Field:

Blaine vs. Hazen, 9:30 a.m.
Oroville vs. Darrington, 12 p.m.
North Mason vs. W.F. West, 3 p.m.
Coeur d’Alene (Idaho) vs. Moses Lake, 5:30 p.m.
Seattle Prep vs. Mercer Island, 8 p.m.
