Auburn this and Auburn that... What happened last year? They lost too many players from a team that couldn't even go the distance. The East side of Washington is going to bounce back this year in 3a. Look out for the Kennewick Lions, who return 9 all conference selections, and will have a senior starting at almost every position. They will hit the crap out of the ball and they have enough pitching to make a run at the title. Mt. Spokane will also be a tough Eastside team. They have one of the best shortstops in the state, and a couple of really good arms.
