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.
Golf, for the most part, is an individual sport. But at the 2015 4A state meet, which starts today, five Wenatchee girls golfers might have the skill necessary to make a run at the team title. Wenatchee is led by senior and Columbia Basin Big Nine most valuable player Carly Bozett, but don’t rule out the other four Panthers from finishing the first day in the top 40.
CASHMERE — In a four-team tournament, sometimes seeding is irrelevant. In the Caribou Trail League’s softball season, one game separated last place Chelan from first place, giving the Goats the dubious fourth seed. None of that mattered Saturday in Cashmere as Chelan routed Omak 13-1 to win the 1A District 6 softball tournament and clinch a state berth.
GIG HARBOR — The Wenatchee boys soccer team is one of four teams still fighting for the 4A state championship after a 3-2 shootout win over host Gig Harbor on Saturday in a state tournament quarterfinal contest. Wenatchee advances to the state semifinal round for the first time in program history.
EAST WENATCHEE — The end of the 2015 track and field season has come for a vast majority of local participants. However nine members of the Eastmont squad and 12 from the Wenatchee team posted marks at Thursday’s 4A district 6 meet at Eastmont High School good enough to qualify for the 4A state track and field meet.
If one were to look at the Columbia Basin Big Nine baseball standings, they might infer Wenatchee was the dominant team all season long, and they would be right. The Panthers ended the season with a 17-1 record in league play, six games better than second-place Moses Lake.
EAST WENATCHEE — The end of the 2015 track and field season has come for a vast majority of local participants. However, nine members of the Eastmont squad and 12 from the Wenatchee team posted marks at Thursday’s 4A Ddistrict 6 meet at Eastmont High School good enough to qualify for the 4A state track and field meet.
MOSES LAKE – Going into Monday’s 4A District 6 boys golf tournament, held at The Links at Moses Pointe and the Moses Lake Country Club, Wenatchee coach Scott Paine was hoping that at least two and maybe three of his golfers would finish in the top nine to qualify for the 4A state tournament.
WENATCHEE -- The Wenatchee boys soccer team has played Skyline as part of its non-league schedule every season the past five years. The Panthers have never won. Wenatchee got the closest this season, tying the Spartans 3-3 in Sammamish last month.
