Rams stumble to first loss of season against Kings

WENATCHEE — Saturday night’s heavyweight clash between the Western Washington Football Alliance’s two best teams certainly lived up to its billing. The Wenatchee Valley Rams battled the defending WWFA champion Puyallup Nation Kings to the last second of a physical slugfest before the game’s final pass fell incomplete inside the Kings’ 5-yard line and the Rams suffered their first defeat of the season by a final score of 18-10.

Rams geared up for big test against Puyallup

WENATCHEE — As the Wenatchee Valley Rams’ players took to the practice field Thursday evening, a sense of anticipation hung in the air. It is hard to understate the magnitude of the heavyweight clash that will be on display in the Apple Bowl on Saturday night when the Rams play host to the undefeated, defending Western Washington Football Alliance champions Puyallup Nation Kings.

Capitals hoping to stay hot against Force

In the two-plus years Wenatchee FC has existed, the Capitals have never had a better weekend than the one they’re coming off. Now, they’ll look to take the momentum they’ve picked up over the past days forwards as they continue their quest for a first-ever top-half finish in the Evergreen Premier League.

AppleSox fall to HarbourCats, still searching for first win

VICTORIA, Bristish Columbia — Four games into the season, the Wenatchee AppleSox are still searching for their first win. They couldn’t find it north of the border as Wenatchee fell to the Victoria Harbourcats 11-1 at Sports Traders Diamond at Royal.

AppleSox swept by Yakima Valley

On Friday, Grady Miller wore a purple gown and tossed his cap high in the air at Town Toyota Center, signaling the end of his high school career. Two days later, the Wenatchee High School graduate traded his mortarboard for a navy Wenatchee AppleSox cap, taking the bump for another hometown team. Despite being effective early, Miller got no run support from his offense as the AppleSox lost their third straight game to begin the season, falling big to the Yakima Valley Pippins 11-0 Sunday at Paul Thomas Sr. Baseball ...

Capitals get back on track with win over South Sound

WENATCHEE — It’s been a tough start to the season for Wenatchee FC, but the Capitals broke out of their early-year slump Saturday. In the first of two games this weekend, Wenatchee dominated South Sound FC in a 3-1 win at the Apple Bowl, a near-reversal of the 3-0 defeat the Shock inflicted on the Capitals less than a month ago.

AppleSox come from behind, but lose in extras

WENATCHEE — Everyone loves a comeback, but in order for a comeback to really embody the meaning of the word, the trailing teams needs to win. Trying to replicate a small-scale version of the Seattle Mariners' epic 16-13 comeback win over the San Diego Padres on Thursday, the Wenatchee AppleSox fell just short after trailing 5-0 for four innings against the Yakima Valley Pippins. Third baseman Ryan Garcia’s two-out single in the top of the 10th off reliever Jordan McGowan drove in the game-winning run as the Pippins nipped the ...

Relentless Rams run wild in blowout of Bellingham

BELLINGHAM — Two weeks ago, Wenatchee Valley Rams head coach Mickey White remarked that he thought his offense was just a few self-inflicted mistakes away from really starting to click. Saturday night at Lummi High School, the Rams made all the right adjustments to turn their once-sputtering offense into a juggernaut. Beginning midway through the first quarter, after the Rams gave up their first defensive touchdown of the season, the running game kicked into warp speed as Wenatchee Valley scored 55 unanswered points on its way to a 58-7 dismantling ...

Applesox fall to Yakima Valley 6-1 on opening night

WENATCHEE — It’s important to keep in mind that the 2016 Wenatchee AppleSox season is a long one. Sixty games long, to be precise. That’s 59 chances for the Sox to look better than they did on Friday night, when a dominant Yakima Valley pitching staff limited Wenatchee to just four hits as the Pippins won the season opener 6-1 before a crowd of nearly 1,200 at Paul Thomas Senior Field on the campus of Wenatchee Valley College.

Red-hot Rams ready for Bellingham test

Three games into the 2016 season and the Wenatchee Valley Rams have picked up right where they left off a season ago.

Back to baseball: AppleSox set to kick off season at home against Yakima Valley

Coaching and responsibility are mutually dependent, particularly when you’re the man in charge. As the Wenatchee AppleSox kick off their 17th season today against the Yakima Valley Pippins, head coach AJ Proszek begins his second campaign as the Sox skipper. Last year, he learned about the many obligations of managing a collegiate summer team. But while bringing in relievers, defensive alignments and hit-and-runs are important in-game decisions, the off-field responsibilities challenged him the most.

Capitals geared up for huge weekend ahead

The coming weekend presents a unique challenge for Wenatchee FC. Usually in soccer, teams have multiple days off between games to rest after players spend the better part of 90 minutes running around the pitch. That’s not the case for the Capitals this weekend.

Kimes breaks pole vault record

CHENEY — Cashmere’s Elli Kimes won the pole vault event with a height of 13 feet, 0.5 inches on Friday at Eastern Washington University in Cheney, a height that broke the previous 1A mark by 5.5 inches. Kimes also took fourth in the 100m hurdles preliminaries with a time of 16.02 seconds.
