The Missionaries versus the Pirates––or, in the joking words of many Whitties, good versus evil––has developed into a healthy rivalry between two schools that are similar in some aspects, but polar opposites in others. The two teams are travel partners on the road in the Northwest Conference and the distance between Walla Walla and Spokane is a short 118 mil...
