A win for the Washougal football community
Panthers beat Hudson’s Bay on their new turf
Tuesday, September 10, 2013
As the Washougal High School football team broke through the ticker tape to their new turf field Friday, John Fishback Jr. had one request.
“Win one for the old Gipper,” said the son of John Fishback, the former Washougal School District superintendent for whom the stadium is named.
“My dad would have appreciated it and the support from the community for it,” he said. “I think he considered this to be one of his best achievements.”
The Panthers made the Fishback family and the Washougal community proud by beating Hudson’s Bay 35-0.
