Prep CW2BL Thursday: Pateros softball gets hard-fought victory against host Liberty Bell

WINTHROP — With a runner on in the top of the seventh, Madison White stepped up to the dish with a chance to provide the Nannies some much needed extra-inning heroics. White did just that, pounding a two-run home run to straightaway center field off Liberty Bell starting pitcher Devon Surface to give Pateros a 6-4 lead. Starting pitcher Aubrey Miller stayed in the circle for the bottom of the seventh and finished out a critical 6-4 road win for the Nannies.

Prep CTL Thursday: Chelan, Omak golf teams share success in Chelan

Chelan’s Corbin Morley came away with a 97 and teammate Cameron Krumbah shot a 98. Omak was the only team who registered a team score with a 407.

Prep focus: Cashmere baseball thumps Cascade

PESHASTIN — A short downpour dampened the momentum that the Cascade baseball team had gained in the first two innings of its game against Cashmere on Thursday at the Peshastin-Dryden Sports Complex. Against a top-notch starting pitcher, the host Kodiaks started the game well at the plate. Then, the rain started, and while it only lasted for a few minutes, it was just enough to throw off Cascade’s rhythm.

Prep CBBN Thursday: Wenatchee girls tennis sweeps Sunnyside

Prep CTL Tuesday: Chelan boys soccer edges Cascade to close in on CTL title

CHELAN — This could be fun. If the Chelan and Cascade soccer teams win their first-round playoff games, they will face each other for the Caribou Trail League championship.
