Capitals ready for tough test against Stars

With just three games remaining in its third Evergreen Premier League (EPLWA) season, Wenatchee FC needs a strong conclusion to the campaign to better last year’s fifth-place finish.

YAKIMA — The Wenatchee AppleSox lost 1-0 to Yakima Valley in soul-wrenching fashion Friday night when the Pippins' Michael Filia hit a walk-off single off relief pitcher Miceal Taylor, earning a victory for the home side in the first of a three-game series at Yakima’s Civic Stadium.

The dreaded handicap index

If you play more than 20 rounds of golf a year, chances are good you keep a handicap. For those not familiar with the handicap system for golf, it’s defined as a numerical measure of a golfer’s ability — or lack thereof. In stroke play, it is used to calculate a net score from the number of strokes actually played during a competition, thus allowing players of different proficiencies to play against each other on somewhat equal terms.

Rams set for regular season finale

WENATCHEE — Although the Wenatchee Valley Rams wrapped up second place in their division and a home game in the first round of the Western Washington Football Alliance playoffs with last week’s 43-14 win over the Snohomish County Vikings, Saturday’s regular-season finale against the Pierce County Bengals is anything but a meaningless game.

AppleSox drop another to visiting Elks

Zoom: Walton sprints past regionals and into the national spotlight

Wenatchee sprinter Skyler Walton, 15, showed she can run with the fastest girls Washington state has to offer when she took second place in the 100-meter dash and third place in the 200m dash as a freshman at the 4A Track and Field State Championships in Tahoma in late May.

Poor first inning sets tone for AppleSox in loss

WENATCHEE — Sequels are never as good as the original. That is a generally accepted movie rule, but it can translate to baseball as well. On Monday, the Wenatchee AppleSox recorded perhaps their most exciting win of the season in a 5-4 win over the Gresham GreyWolves that ended in the top of the ninth on a play at the plate off a wild pitch to the backstop.

WenatcheeOutdoors.org launches new website

Haven’t visited the WenatcheeOutdoors.org website lately? Then take a look. Since the start of 2016, the Outdoor Discovery Network (the non-profit organization overseeing WenatcheeOutdoors) has been modernizing the look, simplifying the use and improving the functionality of the WenatcheeOutdoors website. The original website was launched in 2005 and, over the course of a decade, WenatcheeOutdoors became the go-to website for information about person-powered outdoor adventure sports in and around Central Washington.
