After 367-day hiatus, high school sports returns to NCWLIFE Channel

1195

The last time NCWLIFE broadcast a high school game was March 2, 2020. It was a State 1A boys basketball playoff game at Wenatchee High School between Cashmere and King’s Way Christian. We followed both of Cashmere’s teams to the State 1A Tournament in Yakima, but haven’t broadcast a game since. Today’s the day we break that string!

NCWLIFE Channel will dive into our first-ever broadcast of swimming and diving later today. Eastmont Aquatic Center is the site for a double-dual between Eastmont, Wenatchee and Moses Lake. Eric Granstrom will be poolside along with former swimming official and local attorney John Brangwin for color commentary.

The event takes place at 4 o’clock this afternoon. We will have it on TV tonight at 7 as well as streamed on our website and our Facebook page. In addition, we’re working with Eastmont High School and the NFHS Network to provide our feed so Eastmont fans who have subscribed can watch the broadcast through www.NFHSNetwork.com.
