It’s been a strong year for the 4A/3A boys with 22 averaging in the 70s. That list doesn’t include District 3A champ Gunnar Knutson because his average was 68.25. Players are allowed to drop one score if they competed in all five GSL tournaments. Knutson’s highest score was a 72 at Downriver.
It’s been an eventful journey for the Davenport High senior, but no matter what’s on her schedule count on Panke to be at the top of her game.

Ben Cochran saw the rainbow hanging high above Albi Stadium. The Rogers football coach noticed it just as his team scored a touchdown to pull within 20-19 with 4 minutes, 46 seconds remaining Thursday.
If the rest of the Greater Spokane League is poised for some payback against Central Valley, the Bears are still looking, well, poised. Even if most of them aren’t old enough to drive. Winning will do that for you: The Bears have won two straight State 4A soccer titles.
It took the Lake City football team four games to earn its first win. The Timberwolves, behind mobile senior quarterback Collin Hunter, dispatched Shadle Park 27-7 in a nonleague game Thursday at Albi Stadium.
By his and his coach’s admission, Justin Janke had a disappointing cross country season as a junior. Still, he was the second finisher, 12th overall, for North Central, which captured a record-tying ninth straight state championship.
GSL boys In the North Central boys’ string of nine straight state championships, the Indians have had just two individual champions – Ben Johnston and Tanner Anderson twice. Senior Justin Janke will certainly challenge this fall but NC is shaping up like most of the NC teams the past decade – deep and tightly packed. “We need some growth from the middle of our pack,” NC coach Jon Knight said. NC, ranked No. 1 in the coaches’ preseason rankings, has won 47 straight duals. … Mt. Spokane pushed NC last year, finishing runner-up in league. University finished third and Central Valley was fourth. With the graduation of John Dressel, Mt. Spokane will likely slip a spot or two. The Wildcats bring back junior Hayden Dressel, who took 10th and is the highest returning state placer in the GSL. … Knight expects U-Hi and CV to be in the mix. … Central Valley lost five to graduation, but coach Kieran Mahoney says “we are young but talented.” Mahoney also sees Mead and Lewis and Clark fighting for a top-half finish. … University, ranked fourth in the coaches’ preseason poll, returns seniors Hunter Simpson (22nd at state last year) and Isaac Barville (28th). … Lewis and Clark is led by junior Zak Kindl (32nd). … Four years ago Rogers had four out for cross country. This season the Pirates have 35 led by senior Roberto Lopez.
Republic rumbled through the Northeast 1B North league last year and lost in the state semifinals. But the 2015 version of the Tigers could be more dangerous. Coach Chris Burch must replace twins Alex and Angelo Rivera (Carroll College), but he returns 12 seniors, added two transfers and he likes what he sees on the smoky practice field.
City high schools had yet to hear by Wednesday evening whether they had the go-ahead to play season-opening football games Friday – strike or no strike. Greater Spokane League secretary Herb Rotchford on Tuesday asked Spokane Public Schools officials and Spokane Education Association members for direction regarding football games this weekend. Rotchford said opposing teams traveling to Spokane and even parents traveling to away games had the right to know if they were playing or not.
It’s a strange season- opening weekend for GSL football teams. Seven of 10 teams are out of town. Stranger yet, there’s just two games at Albi Stadium on separate days.
