Conzo returns to Wild

Golf in the Wilderness

While in Spokane last May playing in the Syttende Mai Cup golf tournament, I overheard a conversation by some of our Kalispell players about the “No. 1 course in Montana."

Patience prevails in comeback AppleSox win

WENATCHEE – Momentum is a fickle beast. About halfway through Tuesday’s game at Paul Thomas Sr. Baseball Stadium, the Wenatchee AppleSox threatened to give the home fans the dubious honor of witnessing an opposing no-hitter as Kelowna Falcons starter Matt Camby mowed through the lineup as if driving a John Deere.

Stagnant offense hurts Sox in loss to Kelowna

WENATCHEE – Attention all worms: be on alert. When AppleSox batters weren’t striking out against Kelowna Falcons starting pitcher Kendall Motes, they were pounding balls into the ground. Through five masterful innings, Motes fanned five and induced seven worm-burners Monday in a dominating 7-1 win over the Sox at Paul Thomas Sr. Field.

Kato finishes Tour Divide in record time

WENATCHEE — Last year, Wenatchee native Josh Kato tore his hamstring near Jackson Hole, Wyo., about 700 miles into quite possibly the toughest mountain bike race in North America. A year later, he raced from Banff, Alberta to just north of the Mexico border in record time; 14 days, 11 hours and 37 minutes. The 40-year-old nurse completed the 2,745-mile course, gaining elevation equivalent to six Mt. Everest summits.

PAU, France — After nine stages, Wenatchee native Tyler Farrar sits in 107th place out of 185 racers still in the Tour de France. Farrar’s team, cycling’s final frontier, MTN-Qhubeka, sits in 20th place in the team standings, ahead of two other teams. Farrar is 32:38 off the pace.

Farrar finishes in 119th place in eighth stage

MUR DE BRETAGNE, France — Wenatchee native Tyler Farrar finished in 119th place in the Tour de France's eighth state.

Sox come up short again

Farrar finishes 99th in Tour’s fifth stage

AppleSox comeback falls short, Bend completes sweep

WENATCHEE — In 1995, the plucky Seattle Mariners sold “Refuse to Lose” T-shirts featuring a pelican attempting to swallow a frog, yet the resilient amphibian clasped two “arms” around the white bird’s throat, declining to be gulped without a struggle.

Sox lose heartbreaker in 12 innings

WENATCHEE – Strikes in baseball are commonplace. Strikes across home plate, that is. Strikes in the sky beyond far from the umpire’s jurisdiction are not. In a game abruptly interrupted in the fifth inning by a lightning strike to the southeast of Paul Thomas Sr. Field, the Bend Elk came thundering back in the 12th inning to clip the Wenatchee AppleSox 8-7 in what the late Seattle Mariners broadcaster Dave Niehaus would describe as a “wild, wooly affair.”

Farrar finishes 79th in Tour’s fourth stage

CAMBRAI, France — American and Wenatchee-native Tyler Farrar finished in 79th place on the Tour de France’s fourth stage, a drastic improvement from his 163rd-place finish during the third stage. MTN-Qhubeka teammate Edvald Boasson-Hagen finished in fifth place, just three seconds off the pace.
