VHS Sports Broadcasts on Voice of Vashon

Voice of Vashon has been broadcasting the Vashon High School Pirates baseball, football, and basketball games live this year. Kevin Linnell and John Yates are announcing the basketball games this winter.

Kevin Linnell, who handles color commentary, says "I had been talking with John Yates about doing broadcast of Vashon sports events for seven years." We travelled to state tournaments to watch Vashon teams play and many small communities were broadcasting the games to their hometowns. We thought why not do this for Vashon." This past summer they got their chance when VHS varsity football coach Andy Sears asked if they would be interested in announcing fall games. Kevin recalls "We said yes right away because we really wanted to do this to generate community support for our local sports teams."
