‘Press Coverage’: Week 7 recap

The Herald’s staff breaks down the highlights from Week 7 of the prep football season.

With postseason races heating up around the area, Herald writers Cameron Van Til, Zac Hereth and Josh Horton take a look at the action from Week 7 and what it means going forward.

Some of the highlights from Week 7 include Meadowdale’s big Wesco 3A South win over Shorecrest and Marysville Pilchuck’s continued dominance in Wesco 3A North.

In Wesco 4A, Mariner fell just short of an upset over Glacier Peak, and King’s shook up the North Sound Conference race with a rout of defending league champion Cedar Park Christian.

Also, the Northwest 2A Sky Division opened back up after Sedro-Woolley knocked off second-ranked Lynden.
