WSN Staff and Media Partner picks coming Tuesday

Each year the staff makes state tournament picks prior to the start of the playoffs. They're a fun way to gauge how much we each think we know and of course are always good for office bragging rights as well. As we've done the last few years, we'll be expanding the picks to include some of our great media partners around the state. You can check out last year's picks here.

Look for the WSN staff and media partner state tournament picks to be released next Tuesday.
