The long, winding journey of Grady Miller

Grady Miller should be flying high. He seemingly has it all — a scholarship for baseball, a large sum of friends, and a loving family. However, that’s only from the outside looking in. The route to gaining his scholarship has come with bumps and winds in the road, and his personal life seems to be crumbling.

WENATCHEE — And that’s a wrap.

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

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.
