Prep focus: Manson volleyball team passes last non-league test against Pateros

MANSON — In the early portion of the season, the Manson volleyball team has used a strong service game and powerful hitting to open on a spectacular run. That trend continued Monday, and with their non-league schedule now behind them, the Trojans enter Central Washington 2B League play rolling — and with a whole bunch of momentum behind them.

Prep Saturday: Bridgeport volleyball team tops Waterville

BRIDGEPORT — After dropping the opening set 15-25, the Bridgeport volleyball team needed players to step up and take control against a Waterville squad coming off a strong four-set win against Soap Lake on Thursday. Yohanna Velazquez and Esmeralda Garcia answered the call. Both players stepped in and converted 100 percent of their serves, leading the Fillies to capture the following three sets 25-10, 25-15 and 25-23 to earn their first win of the regular season.

Prep Friday: Cascade football team’s furious comeback falls just short

PESHASTIN — It would have been easy to pack it in and give up. Four minutes into the second quarter, the Cascade Kodiaks football team had fallen behind the Sultan Turks 25-0, a disappointing start to what would become a wild homecoming night at the Peshastin-Dryden Sports complex.

Prep Thursday: Cascade girls soccer team scores four goals in second half, rallies past Okanogan

OKANOGAN — The Cascade girls soccer team used a strong second-half performance to earn a 4-1 road victory over Okanogan at the Central Valley Sports Complex. The Bulldogs held a one goal advantage at halftime after Jill Townsend scored off a well-timed pass from Alexis Jones in the 16th minute, but Cascade found the equalizer in the 47th minute. Just nine minutes later, the Kodiaks caught the Bulldogs’ defense out of position to take the lead and quickly added two more goals to finish off the home side.

Prep focus: Eastmont football team drops home opener to Mt. Spokane

EAST WENATCHEE — The Eastmont football team’s home opener Friday night could hardly have started any better. The host Wildcats forced visiting Mt. Spokane (also nicknamed the Wildcats) to punt on its opening drive, but the snap on the attempted kick sailed over the punter’s head, and he was brought down just outside the red zone. Five plays later, Eastmont quarterback Nate Schwinkendorf hit Jake Ulrich for a six-yard score to give the hosts the lead.
