SBLive Washington podcast: Why high school basketball is being played at the state fairgrounds, Adam Mathieson on coach burnout

On this week’s episode of the SBLive Washington podcast, outdoor basketball is coming to the Washington State Fairgrounds in Pierce County and Todd Milles has the story of how a large group of administrators and even more man power set up three outdoor courts in a covered fairground showroom. Then, Mountain View coach Adam Mathieson joins (15:53 mark) to talk about the toll the condensed COVID season has taken on coaches, what the state coaches association can do to help coaches and how he’s handling the grind of a three-season spring.
