Struggling LSU fires Miles, Cameron after Auburn loss

BATON ROUGE, La. — LSU coach Les Miles, whose recruiting prowess and quirky but lovable leadership style failed to overcome a stone-age offense and ham-handed clock management, was fired Sunday after the Tigers dropped out of the Top 25 with an 18-13 road loss to Auburn in which LSU's potential game-winning touchdown was nullified because the ball was snapped after time expired.

Prep focus: Manson volleyball team passes last non-league test against Pateros

MANSON — In the early portion of the season, the Manson volleyball team has used a strong service game and powerful hitting to open on a spectacular run.

Wilson hurt again as Seahawks embarass 49ers at CenturyLink

SEATTLE — The 69,010 fans at CenturyLink Field on Sunday needed just 43 seconds for something to (loudly) cheer about.

Both players stepped in and converted 100 percent of their serves, leading the Fillies to capture the following three sets 25-10, 25-15 and 25-23 to earn their first win of the regular season.

Prep focus: Quincy comes back in memorable Battle of the Basin win over Ephrata

QUINCY — For most of the first half of Friday’s Battle of the Basin matchup between host Quincy and Ephrata, the Tigers were in full control. With a pair of long drives ending in scores, Ephrata opened up a 10-0 lead with less than two minutes to go in the half, and the Jacks had to that point struggled to get anything going offensively.

Prep Friday: Cascade football team’s furious comeback falls just short

PESHASTIN — It would have been easy to pack it in and give up. Four minutes into the second quarter, the Cascade Kodiaks football team had fallen behind the Sultan Turks 25-0, a disappointing start to what would become a wild homecoming night at the Peshastin-Dryden Sports complex.
