On this Black Friday, coming up soon, we’ll have our Mount Si High School girls’ basketball preview. Find out what to look for as the Wildcats begin a new era in their program’s history, as a new coach takes charge. Later here at the Journal.

In the meantime, though, we have one small piece of news, and that is from Mount Si. Yesterday, of course, saw many of you get around the dinner table and enjoy turkey, trimmings, and perhaps the Seahawks game last night on television – what a great win that was, folks – but a lot of you also probably went out to local parks and fields and played pickup football games. Well, for a group of Mount Si High School alums, they got to play their “Turkey Bowl” games on a big stage – Mount Si’s stadium.

The group representing Mount Si’s Class of 2010 beat out other teams competing in the activity yesterday morning to win the unofficial MSHS “Turkey Bowl”. Among the Class of 2010’ers competing were two former standout athletes – Tanner Riley, who recently graduated after playing four years of college basketball at the University of Portland, and Dillon Shain, who is now an assistant coach with Mount Si’s boys’ basketball team under head coach Kyle Clearman. Speaking of the Wildcat boys’ hoops, weather permitting, a reminder that their jamboree is tomorrow, at MSHS, starting at 10am.
