Cashmere, Okanogan game to decide top Dog

At the start of the season, Okanogan football coach Erick Judd really wasn’t sure what his team would be capable of. He has a much better idea now.

Roundup: Ephrata comes back to beat Quincy

QUINCY — Did Sergio Magana run into the end zone to score a two-point conversion and give the Ephrata football team a one-point lead over arch-rival Quincy with less than 90 seconds to go in Friday’s Battle of the Basin contest at Jaycee Stadium, or didn’t he? That’s a question that surely will debated in both Columbia Basin towns in the coming weeks, months and possibly years. Heck, even the referees couldn’t agree if Magana had crossed the goal line or not.

All-league lists dominated by top teams

A number of area teams were dominant on the diamond, track or court this season, and that dominance carried over to post-season awards.

Okanogan golfer scores ace

LEAVENWORTH — For the first 13 holes on Thursday, Jason Vanderweide’s round was nothing special in a match involving his Okanogan High School team along with Cascade and Quincy. But that changed in a big way on the 14th hole, where the Bulldog golfer scored a hole-in-one on the 321-yard, par-4 hole. Vanderweide also had a pair of pars on the back nine on the way to a 91 for the day.
