It’s likely that you know a student athlete competing this weekend. Maybe you have to go down a few degrees of separation to find someone, but there are a slew of kids testing their skills against athletes from across the state. Over the course of the weekend, champs will be decided in wrestling, gymnastics, and swimming. District tournaments will continue in both boys and girls basketball. And, our sports writer will be logging a lot of hours in his car, traveling around to capture the moment for ThurstonTalk readers.
Now, add in some outstanding dance and theater performances and you have the makings for an exciting weekend. Check out our event calendar to stay up to date with everything happening around Olympia.
