RICHLAND — The route to the 1A softball state tournament was an interesting one for Chelan. The Goats ended Caribou Trail League regular-season play at the bottom of the standings, but beat first-place Cashmere twice in the last week of the season and then again in the first round of the 1A District 6 tournament. The Goats then thumped Omak in the district championship game, and the team was state bound.
YAKIMA — It seemed so tantalizing, so possible. Two Cascade tennis teammates, placing friendship and shared loyalty aside for an hour or so to duke it out on the biggest court small-school tennis has to offer. But in the end, it wasn’t meant to be.
The Chelan softball team entered the 1A District 6 tournament as the last seed, but because the Caribou Trail League teams were so close in terms of record and quality, it wasn’t necessarily a surprise when the Goats took the district title and a 1A state berth.
CHENEY — Cascade sophomore Erin Mullins became the girls 3200-meter state champion after recording a time of 11 minutes, 7.61 seconds at the 1A track and field state meet at Central Washington University on Thursday.
CASHMERE — The Cashmere baseball team will play in its fifth ‘final four’ since 2009 this weekend. The recent history of Bulldogs’ dominance at the 1A level is well known; they won state titles in 2010, 2012 and 2013.
