1A Football: Nisqually possibilities, statewide playoff games

Teams from the Southwest District, Northwest District, SCAC, Caribou Trail League and Northeast League begin postseason play this week. That leaves the Nisqually League as the only Class 1A conference in the state without any playoff games this week, but there’s still plenty at stake. Sixth-ranked Vashon takes on No. 3 Cascade Christian at 7:15 p.m. Wednesday at Franklin Pierce High School for the Nisqually League title. The Cougars have already secured a postseason berth, but can launch themselves onto the state playoff bracket with a win and force the Pirates into a mini-playoff with Orting and Port Townsend at 7 p.m. Saturday at Franklin Pierce for the league’s second and third seeds.

If Vashon topples the Cougars, the Pirates get the No. 1 seed, Cacade Christian the No. 2 seed and, assuming Orting and Port Townsend also win this week, the Cardinals get the No. 3 seed.

With that out of the way, here’s a breakdown of this week’s crossover games and what the first round of the state playoffs might look like.

More on Narrows League changes, reclassification

I’ve got a few pieces of information about reclassification and potential league makeovers to add to this story about the Narrows League expanding to 15 schools that ran in Tuesday’s newspaper, which said that Capital, North Thurston, Timberline and Yelm will become members of the 30-year-old conference, beginning next fall.

It looks like the Narrows League will not add any other schools. I spoke today with Bellarmine Prep athletic director Ed Ploof and the Narrows League set an Oct. 1 deadline for applications to join the league and no other schools have submitted an application. Of course, when we went through this same enrollment count process two years ago, Shelton missed the application deadline by months and still gained entry into the Narrows League.
