Notes: Purple and Gold Pigskin Basketball Coverage, TNT Basketball Poll Omits Vikes
Just wanted to let you know that Purple and Gold Pigskin is happy to announce coverage of the 2009-10 Lake Stevens Vikings boys bastketball season....at least in limited fashion.
As most of you know, I move to Olympia on the first of the year and don't return until the end of March, so the kind of coverage we give football is not possible. However, thanks to Mike Anderton, we can say that we will provide coverage of every game and stats, plus occasional analysis. We will run game stories from Mike Anderton and pictures when possible as well.
Until I leave for Olympia, I will try and provide some extra coverage as well.
Notes: The Tacoma-News Tribune 4A preseason poll is out, and despite their eighth place finish and state and 22-6 record last year, the Vikes are not ranked. Jackson, 14-10 last season (and a team the Vikes beat by 16 late in the year) is ranked fifth and the Decatur team that the Vikings dispatched at State is ranked tenth. The Vikings return 10 varsity lettermen including two-time All Wesco forward Shane Kaska. In addition to Kaska, the Vikes return what amounts to four starters and seven of the top nine scorers from a year ago.
