Prep roundup

MOSES LAKE — Max Angilley scored in the 73rd minute to lift the Wenatchee boys soccer team to a 2-1 league win at Moses Lake on Tuesday. Each team had a first-half goal — Wenatchee’s Ozzy Mejia scored in the 10th minute, and Moses Lake’s Derrick Gonzalez answered in the 27th minute — and the game was deadlocked at 1-1 for more than 45 minutes before Angilley put Wenatchee back in front.

Prep roundup

EAST WENATCHEE — The bats have pop, the pitchers are hitting their spots, but there’s still one problem for the Eastmont baseball team: driving in runners on base. The Wildcats smacked four home runs behind a solid outing from starting pitcher Ian Sagdal, but they gave up five runs in the top of the seventh in a 7-5 loss to University of Spokane in a non-league tilt at Dan White Field on Saturday.

POY for Michael Taylor

SALEM, Va. — Michael Taylor, a senior guard on the Whitworth men’s basketball team and former Brewster High School star, was named the NCAA Division III national player of the year by D3hoops.com on Saturday at the All-Star game accompanying championship weekend. Taylor was also a first-team All-America pick by two publications.

Tennis preview: Time for a breakthrough? Eastmont’s Waterhouse is eyeing state

EAST WENATCHEE — Eastmont tennis player Bekah Waterhouse has been in the mix to qualify for the state tournament twice before, only to be denied. But now she’s a little bigger, a little stronger, and just may have the experience to finally reach the big dance. Now a junior, Waterhouse is just one of 10 tennis players or doubles teams of note the World has picked out for this spring’s season.

Push underway to seed prep football playoffs

WENATCHEE — The Washington State Football Coaches Association is making a push to alter the state football playoffs, and it’s news to at least some coaches in North Central Washington. Both Wenatchee head coach Scott Devereaux and Brewster head coach Ed Ashworth were surprised to learn and skeptical of the WSFCA’s proposal that a committee of retired coaches and athletic directors be employed to seed teams into the state tournament, much like the NCAA basketball tournament committee does.

Brewster girls take 4th place

SPOKANE — Throughout his team’s tumultuous run through the Class 2B girls state tournament, Brewster coach Randy Phillips has often spoken about “playing with the cards we were dealt.” The Bears were behind the eight-ball to begin the tourney after a first-round loss to eventual state runner-up Toutle Lake when the majority of the roster was dealing with residual effects from the flu.

Bears move on to trophy round

SPOKANE — Sick or not, the Brewster girls basketball team made sure they’ll return home from the Class 2B state tournament with a little hardware. A day after a flu-ridden Bears team fell flat in the state quarterfinals, they bounced back with a 59-42 victory over Adna on Friday in the Spokane Arena to advance to the fourth/sixth-place trophy game at 9:30 a.m. Saturday against White Swan.

Toutle Lake upends Brewster

SPOKANE — In a matchup of two favorites for the Class 2B girls state championship, Toutle Lake outlasted Brewster 41-32 in a rugged defensive struggle on Thursday at Spokane Arena, finally wresting control in the final four-plus minutes. Brewster coach Randy Phillips can only imagine if, or how the outcome would have been different had his team been healthy.

Team of two storylines

BREWSTER — The Brewster girls basketball program is no stranger to the state tournament, and neither is Bears head coach Randy Phillips. But when the team takes the floor Thursday at the Spokane Arena for its Class 2B quarterfinal matchup against Toutle Lake, it will be the first time any of its players compete in that kind of atmosphere. Brewster has three state titles and five state appearances since 2000, but its last trip to a tournament was in 2007, a year before the Bears’ three seniors entered high school.

The best left: Four NCW basketball teams remain for state quarterfinals

Three North Central Washington teams are headed to Spokane for state basketball tournament action this week, beginning Thursday, while another one is on a slightly different course. The Chelan boys are headed to Yakima for the Class 1A state tournament. The team doesn’t play until 9 p.m. Thursday, the last of four quarterfinal games. So the Goats aren’t leaving for the tournament the night before the tournament like they usually would.

Raiders’ rally falls short

WENATCHEE — Friday’s first-round state 2B boys basketball game between Lake Roosevelt and Northwest Christian featured teams with similar styles. Both squads prefer to take advantage of their height and pound the ball inside to their skilled post players, and kick the ball out to their shooters for open looks as a fallback option.

Class 2B boys: All about the boards for LR, Brewster

The coaches of both the Lake Roosevelt and Brewster boys basketball teams are placing a great deal of importance on controlling the boards entering the first round of the Class 2B state tournament this weekend. Both teams’ opponents — Northwest Christian Colbert for the Raiders and Waitsburg-Prescott for the Bears — have the size and skill to hurt opponents if they get second looks at the basket.

Class 2B girls: Tough test for No. 5 Brewster in opener

Two of the three NCW teams playing in this weekend’s Class 2B state tournament will be playing for their playoff lives right off the bat, but the team with the least to lose might have the toughest battle of all. Entiat and Lake Roosevelt will take the court on Friday hoping to play on Saturday for the right to go to Spokane next weekend for the round of eight, but Brewster — undefeated since December — will have to beat state co-No. 1 Reardan for a top seed.
