Today, three Northeast Washington will be playing in the state tournament for basketball with the same goals, but very different feelings in their regional matchups.
St. Georges, which is ranked No. 2 in the state’s RPI for 2B schools will be playing No. 7 Onalaska at Mt. Spokane High School at 2 p.m. Not only is it a short drive for the Spokane-based Dragons. but the team they’re facing has to cross the Cascades to get there.
The 19-4 Dragons have been a Top-5 team in the state all year and this game is for seeding purposes only for next week’s State 2B Hardwood Classic at the Spokane Arena. Due to the format change, the top eight seeds in the basketball tournaments play for seeding, where the bottom eight seeds play to get the right to play in the first round at the Arena. More
