Prep Thursday: Cascade girls soccer team scores four goals in second half, rallies past Okanogan

OKANOGAN — The Cascade girls soccer team used a strong second-half performance to earn a 4-1 road victory over Okanogan at the Central Valley Sports Complex. The Bulldogs held a one goal advantage at halftime after Jill Townsend scored off a well-timed pass from Alexis Jones in the 16th minute, but Cascade found the equalizer in the 47th minute. Just nine minutes later, the Kodiaks caught the Bulldogs’ defense out of position to take the lead and quickly added two more goals to finish off the home side. 

Prep Tuesday: Pateros volleyball team tops Thorp-Easton

PATEROS — The Pateros volleyball team took a tight four-set victory from visiting Thorp-Easton on Tuesday, utilizing strong offensive pressure and recovering from a third-set loss of momentum to seal the match and bring their Central Washington 1B League record to a perfect 2-0.

Prep focus: Cascade volleyball team finishes nonleague slate with sixth straight win

LEAVENWORTH — Cascade volleyball coach Marni McMahon strives each season to test her players with a rigorous nonleague schedule so they are ready for any challenges that may arise in Caribou Trail League play or beyond. After wrapping up their nonleague slate with an impressive win, the Kodiaks are ready for whatever examinations may await.

Prep Saturday: Cascade girls soccer team crushes Connell

LEAVENWORTH — Kodiaks players Lauren Richardson, Emily Gaines and Truh Merriman combined to set a Cascade girls soccer program record, becoming the first trio to each record a hat trick in a game as Cascade convincingly defeated visiting Connell 10-0 Saturday in a rematch of last year’s 1A state semifinal.

Prep focus: Eastmont football team drops home opener to Mt. Spokane

EAST WENATCHEE — The Eastmont football team’s home opener Friday night could hardly have started any better. The host Wildcats forced visiting Mt. Spokane (also nicknamed the Wildcats) to punt on its opening drive, but the snap on the attempted kick sailed over the punter’s head, and he was brought down just outside the red zone. Five plays later, Eastmont quarterback Nate Schwinkendorf hit Jake Ulrich for a six-yard score to give the hosts the lead.

Wild prove they can score in bunches with 7-3 win over Spruce Kings

PRINCE GEORGE, British Columbia – The Wenatchee Wild provided the 793 fans at Rolling Mix Concrete Arena on Friday an offensive outburst, scoring three goals apiece in the first and second periods before tacking on an extra goal in the last frame to cap a convincing 7-3 win.

Apple Bowl student section moving temporarily

WENATCHEE — For the foreseeable future, Wenatchee High School’s student section for all athletic events at the Apple Bowl will switch to the east side of the stadium, said athletic director Jim Beeson. The change comes after a row of bleachers gave way underneath jumping students during the Panther football team’s home opener last Friday. Beeson said it’s unclear how long the switch will last.

Prep focus: Panthers impress, but fall to West Valley late

WENATCHEE — Before the 2016 season started, the Wenatchee girls soccer team knew that to reach its goals, it would have to go through West Valley. The Rams are the defending Columbia Basin Big Nine league champions, and their only loss last season came in the 4A state title game. Last season, they beat Wenatchee three times by a combined 8-0 margin.

Prep Saturday: Wenatchee girls swimming and diving team starts season strong

WENATCHEE — Not even the absence of an All-American could deter the Wenatchee girls swimming and diving team on Saturday. Without star senior Jessica Wierzbicki (away on a recruiting trip), the host Panthers took first place at the Wenatchee Invitational, cruising to a 50-point victory over second-place Tahoma at the Wenatchee High School Pool.
