FEDERAL WAY — Wenatchee took 18th place out of 36 teams at the Boys State Swimming and Diving Championships at the Weyhauser King County Aquatic Center in Federal Way on Saturday. Eastmont placed 21st.
TACOMA — Eastmont grappler Julian Arellano was on a 2-0 win streak at Mat Classic XXVII when he fell to Moses Lake’s Trey Long on Saturday at the Tacoma Dome. The 9-0 loss knocked him down to the consolation bracket, where he was eventually able to climb back up to a fourth-place finish.
WENATCHEE — Entering its Friday game against Blue Mountain at Smith Gymnasium, the Wenatchee Valley College men’s basketball team knew that it absolutely had to beat the Timberwolves in order to stay alive for a postseason berth. A loss to the Pendleton school wouldn’t necessarily have eliminated the Knights from playoff contention, but it would’ve made clinching a top-four spot in the competitive Northwest Athletic Conference East Region extremely difficult.
WENATCHEE — Five days after losing by 18 points at Sunnyside, the Wenatchee girls basketball team turned around and beat the Grizzlies 69-55 on Thursday in a 4A District 6 tournament first-round game to clinch a state regional berth and advance to Saturday’s district title game at Moses Lake.
Just from watching Eastmont swimmer Henry Bergstrom complete laps in a pool, it’s easy to see that he feels just as at-home flip-turning to head down the final stretch as he does walking down the street.
