Cross country is the second sport to hold state championships this fall season. Last weekend, Union finished second in the Class 4A slowpitch softball tournament. It was the first time the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association has sanctioned slowpitch softball since 2001.
Volleyball’s state tournaments, depending on classifications, are Nov. 14-16 and Nov. 22-23.
The girls swim meet is Nov. 15-16.
The girls soccer state playoffs begin the week of Nov. 11. The final four is Nov. 22-23.
In volleyball, Ridgefield is the defending Class 2A state champion. The Spudders won the 2A Greater St. Helens League this season and are the top seed heading into the district tournament, which begins Thursday.
Kelso and Prairie are tied for first place in the 3A GSHL with two league matches remaining. Camas and Skyview are tied atop the 4A GSHL standings with one match remaining. The 4A and 3A postseason teams will go to bi-district Nov. 15 and 16.
In soccer, Columbia River is undefeated and will take on Hockinson in a Class 2A district semifinal tonight. Ridgefield will face Tumwater in the other semifinal. Tonight’s winners will clinch berths to state. The losers will still have a chance in the consolation bracket.
In 3A, Mountain View won the GSHL. The Thunder have a home match tonight in a bi-district quarterfinal, a winner-to-state match. Prairie is on the road, also in the quarters.
In 4A, Union won the GSHL and will host a winner-to-state, loser-out match on Thursday. Camas, the No. 2 seed, is on the road Thursday. Skyview plays in a loser-out match tonight.
