Running and rowing are the topics this week on Prep Sports Weekly.

This Saturday, April 22nd, is the Annual NIKE Eason Memorial Track Meet at Veterans Memorial Stadium in Snohomish. SHS Athletic Director Mark Perry will join Tom and Steve with a look at this year’s field, which includes 70 teams from Glacier Peak to Handsworth BC; Kamiak to Davis HS in Yakima; and every stop in between. “The Eason” has become the pre-eminent track & field event in the Pacific Northwest.

Speaking of the Pacific Northwest, it’s become a hot-bed of rowing, with the University of Washington Crew the leaders nationally. We’ll have four future Huskies with us in-studio. One is a senior at Everett High; one is from Archbishop Murphy; one is from Jackson and one is from Monroe; all are products of the Everett Rowing Association. Rain or shine; high winds or snow; you’ll see these “Boys In The Boat” plying the waters of the Snohomish River. We welcome Ethan Grice, Chandler Kovacevich, Cameron Helgerson and Chase Barrows to Prep Sports Weekly.

Prep Sports Weekly is heard every Thursday at 6:00 pm on FOX Sports 1380 & FM 95.3. The hosts are Tom Lafferty, Sports Director of FOX Sports 1380 and Steve Willits of the Sound Live Sports Network. Podcasts of each week's show will be posted on the Friday following the live radio broadcast.
