As the regular season nears its close, each Fife Trojan team is looking good in the playoff and district pictures. Currently, the Trojan football team sits in second place in the 2A SPSL after their close 38-35 loss to league leader Franklin Pierce. With three games remaining on the schedule (two at home) the football squad is looking good for the playoffs and even could host a game should the Trojans remain in second place (or move up to first).

The Trojan volleyball team has moved up to number eight in the state 2A rankings and sits atop the 2A SPSL with a one-game lead over rival Franklin Pierce. A trip visit to a tough White River on Oct. 20 could solidify Fife’s spot at the top, or muddle the entire race for the league title and top-seed to the district tournament.

The Fife girls soccer team is a virtual lock for the district tournament as they currently sit tied for second place with White River. However, all eyes will be on league-leader Franklin Pierce and the hopes of them dropping a game or two. Fife’s trip to Steilacoom on Oct. 30 is going to make a huge impact on the final league standings and the seeding to districts.

The Trojan girls swimming team is firing on all cylinders. With several district and state marks already achieved, the squad looks likely to make some noise in the post-season and as a team they currently sit in second place in the 2A SPSL behind powerhouse Steilacoom. Coach Jo Bushnell’s team is experience-heavy as they paddle toward the post-season with eight seniors leading the way.
