The bottom two sides in the Mid-Columbia Conference and Columbia Basin Big Nine in 2016 ago are off to great starts this spring. Walla Walla, with a win over Kamiakin Tuesday, has already picked up two wins in three games to start the season after going winless a year ago. Eisenhower, meanwhile, topped last year's co-leader Davis to sit atop the CBBN with Wenatchee at 2-0.

Facing a significant boost in its enrollment in the coming years, the already travel-burdened school is facing a rise to the highest classification in the Oregon School Activities Association that would put the school in the Mt Hood Conference, which is currently comprised of eight Portland-area schools that are an average of approximately 180 miles away. The change would double its annual mileage and significantly increase the number of academic hours missed - potentially up to a third of their classes in a month.
It was a rather quiet day for a Thursday, but there were a few interesting results in a series of non-league affairs.
Perhaps tops of the list was a narrow 1-0 victory for Rogers in a preseason showdown with fellow 3A GSL side North Central. Rogers had the better of the attack throughout the game and finally broke through with just three minutes remaining with a goal from Omar Muse. The Pirates continue to improve each season and could be a handful throughout the 2017 campaign - and given other results thus far in preseason matches - could perhaps contend within the 3A if they can stay consistent.
