In this week’s Inside the Lines High School Podcast with Jim Powers, we talk with more of the coaches that are getting ready for state championship runs. First, we chat with Parkway Central Girls’ Track and Field Head Coach Ryan Banta about this past week’s sectional and how his runners performed at sectionals. We then chat with Nick Beckmann from Howell Central about his baseball team and their matchup against Howell in the state quarterfinals Saturday afternoon. We wrap up the podcast with a talk with head coach Jeff Cheak from St. Louis University High about their contest in the boys’ volleyball state final against Vianney tonight.
