Friday and Saturday, Exhibition Hall of the Tacoma Dome

Schedule: Friday – 4A team and all-around are from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. 3A/2A/1A team and all-around are from 6:20 p.m. until 10 p.m. Saturday – All individual event finalists compete from 11:20 a.m. until 3 p.m.

2012 team champions: 4A – Mead. 3A/2A/1A – Enumclaw.

The skinny: One defending champion will try and repeat (Enumclaw); one will not get the opportunity (Mead). The Panthers, who were undefeated in the Greater Spokane League, placed a surprising third behind winner Emerald Ridge and runner-up Jefferson at last week’s Class 4A West Central/Spokane District championships at Mount Rainier High School, and did not qualify for the state meet. Meanwhile, the upstart Jaguars are rolling behind district all-around winner CaroLyne Schmidt, who tied for 24th at the 4A state meet last season. KingCo champion Woodinville, the 4A champion from 2007-10, was the state runner-up last season to Mead. The Falcons won their district title at Sammamish High School, scoring a season-high 177.3 points. Newport High’s Candace Ho might be the state all-around favorite after placing third in 4A last season. … The Hornets won the WCD 3A/2A/1A meet last weekend at Mount Rainier, and have Olivia Bannerot (second in state in all-around last season) and Maddison Ward (third) back. Highline’s Kristen Rodal won the WCD all-around title over Bannerot, and placed eighth at state last season.
