RENTON, Wash. – The WIAA is pleased to announce a three-year agreement with MaxPreps to be the Association’s “Official Digital Media Partner and Statistician.”
The WIAA and MaxPreps will provide all member high schools with a streamlined process to submit information for important WIAA initiatives and state tournament publications to increase accuracy, visibility, and positive promotion of high school sports information. Additionally, the information will allow the WIAA to devote a portion of its website to regular-season schedules, scores and standings, which will also be featured on MaxPreps.com.
“This exciting partnership keeps the WIAA at the forefront of technology and aligns it with other state associations,” WIAA Executive Director Mike Colbrese said. “Member schools, student-athletes and high school sports enthusiasts will have the luxury of one centralized location for statewide schedules, scores and standings.”
“MaxPreps is thrilled to partner with the WIAA and establish a streamlined data entry process for all member schools,” said Andy Beal, president and founder of MaxPreps. “High school sports are important to communities and most importantly young people throughout the United States. The WIAA is a clear leader in the positive growth of high school athletics and MaxPreps is honored to work with the WIAA to serve their membership.”
During the first year of the partnership, MaxPreps will provide regular-season and post-season data for the following team sports: baseball, basketball, football, soccer, softball and volleyball. After the first year, the WIAA and MaxPreps will explore opportunities to expand in coverage and in other athletics and activities.
Currently, MaxPreps has partnerships with the following state associations: Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Indiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Utah.
More information will be sent directly to the member schools from representatives of the WIAA and MaxPreps.]]>
But also interesting is that the association in charge of high school athletics in California (the CIF) has a new rule limiting football practice to 18 hours a week.

Is the world ready for Jorden Payne to take over Hollywood?
Can you really make minute rice in less than a minute?
And if you were a criminal and saw this guy coming at you with a badge, what would you do?
These are just some of the little things that make these guys great. Plus a few comments from yours truly. (By the way, I cannot guarantee that every player listed here is playing in Saturday’s game. Some players said yes to playing months ago but for a variety of reasons did not show for practice this week. The questionnaire was filled out a long time ago.)
Jason Vailea of Camas, pictured above, wants to become a police officer.
My take: Dude is faster than he looks, too, so he should be able to chase down any criminal. Or simply just stare down the criminal into surrendering.
Jorden Payne of Camas wants to be an American Idol, move to Hollywood, and become famous.
My take: We always knew Camas just wasn’t big enough for this talent.
Adam Dawson of Camas wants to be Time’s Man of the Year.
My take: Only if he can be a better man than Jorden Payne! Of course, if he can, he surely would be Time’s Man of the Year!
Matt Walser of Camas: “Can hold my breath for a minimum 23 seconds and can balance 3 eggs on my head.”
My take: Goodness, Payne and Dawson have no chance now.
Hunter Huddleston of Woodland is going to play football at Southwest Minnesota State.
My take: Isn’t that where they filmed “Coach” the TV series?
Josiah Jones-Contreras of Heritage says he can make Minute Rice in 58 seconds.
Ryan Peerboom of R.A. Long says he can make Minute Rice in 57 seconds.
My take: Oh, it’s on. It’s so on. Somebody get these two to settle this thing at halftime please. Oh, and maybe this guy can be the referee:
Jonathan Branson of Columbia River is grateful for this game in July. “When it’s not football season, I turn into a bum.”
My take: I understand. Sometimes wish I could slip into a coma every offseason and just wake up when training camp opens.
Kyle Hendrix of Woodland says his favorite team is the Carolina Panthers.
My take: I respect anyone who publicly declares his love for the Carolina Panthers. No, I’m not a fan of the Panthers, but I appreciate the passion of real fans. Carolina does not have a history of winning, so clearly, Kyle must be a fan. So don’t talk smack!
Treshon Long of R.A. Long says he dances at random moments, even when there is no music.
My take: See, I’m not the only one!
Long of Long also says he had an “uncountable” number of pancake blocks last season.
My take: I’ve been known to eat an uncountable number of pancakes.
Kyle Aplin of Evergreen: “I’m a boss.”
My take: Hope you are nicer than my ex-boss. My ex-boss made me watch soccer once.
Zack Motil of Skyview: “I like the Oregon Ducks a lot.”
My take: Nobody’s perfect.
Jay Becker of King’s Way Christian: Finished with 200 total touchdowns.
My take: That would be passing, rushing, receiving, returning, moon landings, etc. Here’s hoping when he has the ball, the other team can only field eight men.
Connor Wonderly of La Center says ping pong is one of his favorite sports.
My take: I will petition the WIAA to sanction that sport right away.
Justin Smalley of Battle Ground races go-karts.
My take: I race after food carts.
Leon Siofele of Union: “I like to write poems.”
My take: Roses are red, violets are blue, I can’t tackle Leon, and neither can you.
Ala Tulenkun of Fort Vancouver: Full name is Alaolealofa Manamaleafi Larenson Jr. Tulenkun.
My take: On behalf of every member of the media, I appreciate your decision to just go by Ala Tulenkun.
Matthew Matteo of Skyview claims he is “just a great guy to be around.”
My take: Well, he was really nice when I talked to him, and I’m a jerk, so he must be a great guy to be around.
E’Lon Mack of Heritage: “When people describe me, they say I’m a hyperactive knucklehead.”
My take: I’ve never called you hyperactive! (I kid because I care.) To make it up to you, here is a great photo of Batman!
James Niemela of Columbia River has a brown belt in kung fu.
My take: Think I’ll just leave this one alone, thank you very much. Walk away quietly. Don’t upset him.
And finally, these six players have all expressed interest in joining the military: Jason Bracken (Prairie), Nathan Jaskierny (Columbia River), Levi Krout (La Center), Ethan Beniga (Union), Aaron Vejar (Hockinson), and Brody Bagnall (Evergreen).
My take as a former soldier: Thank you.
And I must fit in Jason Bracken’s words for this military section of this report:
“I’ve always wanted to travel and help others out, as well as shoot guns and blow stuff up”
My take: Hooah!
Bracken continued: “There’s also a bit of American pride that makes me want to serve my country.”
My take: Roger that, and Godspeed.
Have fun Saturday night in the Freedom Bowl Classic.]]>
The four-game event begins at 10 a.m. with a 2B showdown between the Bridgeport Mustangs and the Darrington Loggers. Bridgeport will be making its first appearance at the annual classic, while Darrington looks to continue its recent success with back-to-back State Playoffs berths, they have not achieved since the 1997-98 seasons.
The second game on the slate pairs up two eastern Washington schools. The 3A Mt. Spokane Wildcats square off against the 4A West Valley (Yakima) Rams at 1 p.m. In 2013, the Wildcats finished 8-3 and qualified for the first round of the State Playoffs where they fell to Shadle Park. The Rams finished 2013 with an 8-2 record and in a three-way tie for second in the 2A CWAC Standings, but were eliminated from postseason play in a Kansas City Tiebreaker.
The 4 p.m. battle features a cross-classification game between the 4A Emerald Ridge Jaguars and the 2A Prosser Mustangs. The Jaguars are looking to return to the State Playoffs for the first time since 2010 when they reached the quarterfinals. Emerald Ridge ended the 2013 season on a four game winning streak and has expectations to expand on last year’s late season success. The Mustangs qualified for the State Semifinals the last three seasons.
The 7 p.m. showcase pits the Roosevelt Roughriders against the Benson Techmen of Portland, Ore. The Roughriders missed the State Playoffs last year, but were quarterfinalists in 2012. Roosevelt is 1-0 at the ECKC as they defeated Seattle Prep, 7-0 in 2013. Benson struggled in 2013 capturing just one win in the Portland Interscholastic League. But the Techmen, who play in the 6A classification (Oregon’s largest classification), look to rebound in 2014 and return to the State Playoffs for the first time since 2009.
Tickets for the Kickoff Classic are $15 for adults, $10 for students (with valid ASB card) and seniors (62 and over), and children under the age of five are free. Details on the Emerald City Volleyball Invitational will be released at a later date.]]>
The Vancouver Cardinals host the event, which features 12 teams from throughout the Northwest.

Add another honor for Alexa Efraimson.
The Camas junior was named the Gatorade Washington Girls Track and Field Athlete of the Year for a second consecutive season.
Efraimson set a national prep record for the 1,600-meter run, finishing in 4:33.29 at the Class 4A state meet to break the previous mark by 0.52 seconds.
She also won the state title in the 800 meters in 2:04.10, which was the second-best prep time in the country this season. Efraimson ranked No. 1 in the country in the 1,500 and her time of 4:07.05 was the third-best clocking in prep track history. She also ran the nation’s best time this season in the 3,000 (9:23.24) and No. 2 in the 3,200 (9:55.92).
Efraimson was the Gatorade National Cross Country Athlete of the Year in the fall.
“Alexa has combined talent, work ethic, knowledge of her sport and humility to become one of the most exciting athletes we have seen,” said Alisa Wise, head coach of Camas High. “She has risen far and above and proven herself over and over again to be not only the best at her events, but consistent and durable as well.”
Raven Saunders, a senior at Burke HS in Charleston, S.C., was selected as the Gatorade National Girls Track and Field Athlete of the Year after setting new national prep record in the shot put.]]>
