Prep CW2BL Thursday: Pateros softball gets hard-fought victory against host Liberty Bell

WINTHROP — With a runner on in the top of the seventh, Madison White stepped up to the dish with a chance to provide the Nannies some much needed extra-inning heroics. White did just that, pounding a two-run home run to straightaway center field off Liberty Bell starting pitcher Devon Surface to give Pateros a 6-4 lead. Starting pitcher Aubrey Miller stayed in the circle for the bottom of the seventh and finished out a critical 6-4 road win for the Nannies.

Prep CTL Thursday: Chelan, Omak golf teams share success in Chelan

CHELAN — The Chelan boys and girls golf teams hosted Omak on Thursday afternoon at the Lake Chelan Municipal Golf Course. It was a beautiful day for golf and Pioneers’ golfer Brandon Abrahamson took honors with a score of 81, followed closely by his teammate Wyatt Utt with an 85. Chelan’s Corbin Morley came away with a 97 and teammate Cameron Krumbah shot a 98. Omak was the only team who registered a team score with a 407.

Prep focus: Cashmere baseball thumps Cascade

PESHASTIN — A short downpour dampened the momentum that the Cascade baseball team had gained in the first two innings of its game against Cashmere on Thursday at the Peshastin-Dryden Sports Complex. Against a top-notch starting pitcher, the host Kodiaks started the game well at the plate. Then, the rain started, and while it only lasted for a few minutes, it was just enough to throw off Cascade’s rhythm.

Prep CBBN Thursday: Wenatchee girls tennis sweeps Sunnyside

WENATCHEE — The Wenatchee girls tennis team continues to dominate. After a slim 4-3 win over cross-river rival Eastmont on Tuesday, the host Panthers responded with a 7-0 smackdown of Columbia Basin Big Nine bottomfeeder Sunnyside on Thursday.

Prep CW2BL Tuesday: Okanogan tennis splits with Oroville

OROVILLE — The Okanogan tennis teams split a pair of contests with Oroville on Tuesday. The host Hornets pulled off a major surprise on the boys side, while the Bulldogs girls came away with a shutout.

Prep focus: Quincy boys soccer overcomes Ellensburg comeback for important win

QUINCY – Just when it seemed like they were heading for a straightforward, run-of-the-mill victory, the Quincy Jackrabbits boys soccer team was blindsided Tuesday. But the way they responded to the challenge proved the Jacks are a force to be reckoned with in the Central Washington Athletic Conference and the 2A postseason to follow.

Prep CTL Tuesday: Chelan boys soccer edges Cascade to close in on CTL title

CHELAN — This could be fun. If the Chelan and Cascade soccer teams win their first-round playoff games, they will face each other for the Caribou Trail League championship. Fans and players of both teams saw a glimpse of that potential preview Tuesday at Chelan High School. With the game tied at 2-2 and six minutes remaining, Rafa Barajas — who was playing on the outside — sprinted toward the middle on a backside run for a breakaway game-winning goal as Chelan came away with a terrific 3-2 win.

Prep Monday: Wenatchee girls golf keeps marching on

MOSES LAKE — At the fifth POD of the Columbia Basin Big Nine girls golf season Monday at Moses Lake Country Club, the Wenatchee Panthers stayed red hot, winning their fifth league event in a row by 20 strokes over Davis.

Okanogan baseball’s four sets of brothers leading Bulldogs

Forgive Ed Ashworth. The Okanogan baseball coach, who admits he’s “not easy to play for,” constantly shouts constructive criticism at his players during practice. But often, confusion sets in. If he yells the last name of Stanley, Rubert, Fingar or Ashworth, multiple heads may turn in his direction. Brothers abound on the Okanogan baseball team, with the sibling duos of Dakota and Chase Fingar, Chase and Hunter Rubert, Clay and Conner Ashworth and Justin and Jacob Stanley.

Prep Saturday: Cashmere explodes in sweep of Chelan

CASHMERE — Just about everything was working for the Cashmere baseball team on Saturday. The Bulldogs hit, pitched and defended superbly well in their Caribou Trail League-opening doubleheader, downing visiting Chelan 17-4 in the first game and 17-1 in the second game at Cashmere High School.

Prep Friday: Brewster softball hands Okanogan first league losses

OKANOGAN — Entering Friday, the Okanogan Bulldogs softball squad boasted a pristine 10-0 league in Central Washington 2B League play. Leave it to their regional rivals to spoil that perfection. With a relentless offense and two quality games from star pitcher Markie Miller, the Brewster Bears swept a double header against Okanogan on Friday, winning 12-2 and 15-3 at Okanogan High School.
