Author’s note: It’s been nearly 50 years since my last book report, back to the 10th grade, I think. I still remember struggling over writing something halfway intelligent about “Catcher In The Rye” by J.D. Salinger — Holden Caulfield coming of age and dealing with angst and alienation that many 15-year-old high school kids were expected to relate to. I think I remember getting a C on the paper, so use that letter grade as a measuring stick for what you are about to read. Thanks.)
While the Caribou Trail League nearly disappeared due to Washington Interscholastic Activities Association realignment, the Columbia Basin Big Nine´s structure makes more sense going into the 2014 season.
The old eight-team Caribou Trail League has disbanded, leaving a four-team mini-league behind. Cascade, Cashmere, Chelan and Omak are the teams that will call the CTL home for the 2014 football season.
The Central Washington 2B League will have new and familiar faces entering the 2014 football season. Okanogan joins the 2B ranks, and is the odds-on favorite to win the league after an 11-2 season and state tournament berth in the Caribou Trail League a season ago.
