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. That trend continued Monday, and with their non-league schedule now behind them, the Trojans enter Central Washington 2B League play rolling — and with a whole bunch of momentum behind them.

Patriots’ Brissett may miss time with thumb injury

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Reports that New England Patriots third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett suffered a torn ligament in his right thumb and likely would need surgery may have been premature.

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. On the third play from scrimmage, Seahawks second-string running back Christine Michael scampered for a 41-yard touchdown and gave Seattle a lead it would never relinquish in a 37-18 drubbing of visiting San Francisco on Sunday at CenturyLink Field.

Prep Saturday: Bridgeport volleyball team tops Waterville

BRIDGEPORT — After dropping the opening set 15-25, the Bridgeport volleyball team needed players to step up and take control against a Waterville squad coming off a strong four-set win against Soap Lake on Thursday. Yohanna Velazquez and Esmeralda Garcia answered the call. 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.

Sunnyside football team cruises past Wenatchee

SUNNYSIDE — In its Columbia Basin Big Nine league opener, the Wenatchee football team got off to a terrific start. But that was about the only thing that went the Panthers’ way Friday night in a 39-7 loss at Sunnyside.

Seahawks try out three running backs

While Pete Carroll seemed to indicate after Sunday’s game that the team thought Thomas Rawls wouldn’t be out long, if at all, after being kicked in the shin, Pro Football Talk reported Tuesday night the Seahawks brought in three running backs for tryouts Tuesday, apparently looking to add depth in case it is needed.

Baldwin makes statement on race relations in U.S.

RENTON — Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin’s time with reporters Thursday began with a statement on race, law enforcement and social activism, reflections that follow the latest police-involved shootings of black men in the United States.
