High School Photos - Great Holiday Gifts!!

Thanks for following our High School coverage this year on INWsn. It's not quite done (keep an eye out following T-Day), but since we are in the gift-purchasing season, I wanted to make sure everyone has seen all of the galleries we have posted this year as photos for family and friends make AWESOME GIFTS. More importantly, it helps keep INWsn running. Unfortunately there are no Black Friday discounts, but that's because I keep my rates extremely affordable to begin with!

College Tourney Update: WSU, Baylor Reach Record Rounds

Wendlandt and the Bears celebrate advancement to Elite 8 (Baylor photo)
The second weekend of NCAA Tournament action was quite the time for area schools and players. Washington State reached the Round of 16 for the first time and Camryn Wendlandt (Coeur d'Alene, ID) helped Baylor reach the Elite 8 for the first time in program history. Featuring a trio of area players, Santa Clara also won its second round match on Friday away from home.

Meanwhile, Averie Collins (Bozeman, MT) and her top-ranked Stanford side are taking care of business and reached the Elite 8 with a pair of shutouts.

Wendlandt and Baylor will now face top-seeded Duke on Friday in the Elite 8, looking to clinch a spot in the Final Four in Orlando. After a close call in their opening match, 1-0 against UNC-Greensboro, the Blue Devils dominated against a pair of Baylor's Big XII peers Oklahoma State and Texas with 7-0 and 3-0 wins, respectively. After 1-0 overtime regular season losses to both, Baylor beat Texas, 2-1 in overtime, and Oklahoma State, 3-0, in the first two rounds of the conference tournament, respectively, en route to the league title and NCAA tournament. Stanford will host 10th-ranked Penn State.

In other tournaments, Western Washington's NCAA DII title defense came to an in the Third Round on the road in San Diego and all of the area Cascade Collegiate Conference sides were knocked out on the road in their opening round games of the NAIA tournament. The Martinson sisters - Riley and Ashtin - are still going in the NAIA tournament, however, with Embry-Riddle AU and a pair of players are still in the NCAA DI men's tourney with Stanford and Akron advancing to the second round.
