WENATCHEE — It’s been a tough start to the season for Wenatchee FC, but the Capitals broke out of their early-year slump Saturday.

Last year, he learned about the many obligations of managing a collegiate summer team. But while bringing in relievers, defensive alignments and hit-and-runs are important in-game decisions, the off-field responsibilities challenged him the most.
As they flew out to Salt Lake City to start the final series of the Pac-12 baseball regular season on Friday, the Huskies had many reasons to feel good about not only an NCAA tournament berth but their potential for deep run in the postseason.
Fishing throughout North Central Washington continues to be excellent and there’s an abundance of fish to be caught no matter where you go. This past Memorial Day weekend, I had the opportunity to fish two lakes; Roosevelt and Alta. Although each lake has different ways to fish it, the basics are still relatively the same. The basics when fishing from a boat are: speed, color, bait, scent, and depth.

Facing Minnesota for the third time this season, and the second time this weekend at Husky Softball Stadium in the NCAA regional championship game, UW got a nice boost from the return of its best pitcher, Pac-12 co-freshman of the year Taran Alvelo.
