The Shock are trying to pack Harry Lang Stadium, which is just a few exits up I-5, so they are offering free admission to youth dressed in uniform and admission for anybody dressed in South Sound FC gear or US Soccer American Outlaws gear will be donation based.

OUT: Last week, The Olympian reported that Black Hills head football coach Dominic Yarrington would not have his contract renewed and is out after just one season at the helm of the Wolves.
Yarrington has been on paid leave from his teaching position at Black Hills since December while an “incident” is investigated. The Eli Sports Network reports that the incident was an “unfortunate relationship” with a parent of a player involving “inappropriate activity on school grounds between adults”.
OUT: Timberline senior and University of Washington basketball signee Donaven Dorsey broke his ankle on Friday night in a 65-38 loss at Lincoln and might be out for the season, reports The Olympian. Dorsey was supposed to see a orthopedic specialist on Monday to determine if surgery would be needed but Meg Wochnick tweeted that he was unable to do so, likely because Monday was Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
