Prep Thursday: Wenatchee tennis tops West Valley to stay unbeaten

WENATCHEE — Last season, the Wenatchee tennis teams breezed through Columbia Basin Big Nine play, except for those pesky matches against West Valley. The Panthers came into Thursday’s matchup with the Rams in the same boat as last year — undefeated and untested. Well, that changed in a hurry.

Prep track and field preview: Toss, sprint and a jump

The runners have taken their marks, the starting gun has been fired and the high school track and field season is underway. Expectations and beliefs are high for a number of teams across the Wenatchee Valley. Both Columbia Basin Big Nine schools in the area are looking for success at state, while the Caribou Trail League is anyone’s to win. With the season still in its infancy, here’s a quick jaunt around to some of the teams looking to make their presences felt in the 2016 campaign.

Prep Monday: Omak girls tennis edges Chelan, Goats boys return the favor

OMAK — The Omak girls tennis team beat visiting Chelan 3-2 on Monday night. Omak is stacked at the top. No. 1 doubles player Jenna Bucsko continued her undefeated start by beating visiting Chelan’s Sydney Thomson in three sets and the No. 1 doubles duo of Alex and Jennifer O’Dell swept Chelan’s Madeline Peebles and Sierra Rothlisberger.

Prep Friday: Eastmont softball sweeps aside Wenatchee

EAST WENATCHEE — The Eastmont softball team closed out its first week of the league season by sweeping a key doubleheader on Friday against the visiting Panthers to finish off a three-game weeklong sweep. The Wildcats dominated the opener, winning 16-6 despite leaving nine runners stranded on base and Eastmont survived a barrage of self-inflicted wounds to pull off an 11-10 comeback win in a darkness-shortened nightcap.
