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. The Wenatchee boys tennis team, Panthers boys track squad and Cashmere baseball team are just a few of the teams that racked up awards just like they had victories during the season.

Prep hoops roundup

TONASKET — The Cashmere boys basketball team needed a win and a Cascade loss on the final day of the regular season, and got both. The Bulldogs topped Tonasket 77-65 while the Kodiaks fell 69-40 at Chelan. That gave the Bulldogs the No. 2 seed, so now when Cashmere and Cascade meet Thursday for the fourth time this season, the game will be in Cashmere.

COULEE DAM — When it comes to the Lake Roosevelt Raiders, the second time was the charm for the Chelan Goats. A month after the Raiders beat the Goats on their home floor, Chelan returned the favor Saturday night, beating Lake Roosevelt 60-51 in a non-league clash between a pair of league leaders.

Prep roundup: Brewster boys win defensive battle with Pateros

BREWSTER — Friday’s contest between the Pateros and Brewster boys basketball teams had a playoff-type atmosphere, according to Bears coach Dwight Plugrath. That’s not surprising, considering the Billygoats entered the game in second place in the Central Washington League North, and the Bears were in third.

Midseason report card for NCW prep basketball

The big guns are gone, several leagues are dominated by one or two teams, and even the number of ranked teams has dwinded to a couple. High school basketball in North Central Washington is lacking in firepower this season.

Entiat girls pull into second place

ENTIAT — Riverside Christian roared back in the fourth quarter Friday, outscoring Entiat 21-7. Fortunately for the Tigers, they’d built an enormous lead over the first three quarters and held on for the 63-49 victory. The Tigers were able to pull ahead by clamping down on Kendra Stamates in the first half.

CTL’s first week ends with a bang

The wild and woolly Caribou Trail League is back, and with a vengeance. The first week of league play was capped off Saturday night, with three games decided by five points or less, and a surprise or two thrown into the mix.

Prep roundup: Brewster girls pile up points vs. LR

BREWSTER — Earlier in the season, Brewster girls basketball coach Randy Phillips experimented with lineups and player rotations, eager to find the team’s best combination. It’s becoming apparent that he might have found what he’s been looking for, as the Bears are playing at a high level right now.

The Pateros Billygoats raced out to an early lead, then shut down Brewster star Stockton Taylor, on the way to a surprising 57-41 win over the Bears in an early-season matchup between two of the top Central Washington 2B League North Division boys basketball teams. “You gotta come out of the gates ready to play, and tonight we were hot,” said Pateros coach Mike Hull, whose team led 23-4 after the first. “We hit some shots, cleaned some boards early and were able to capitalize on the other end.”

Quincy boys can’t quite overcome early deficit against Prosser

QUINCY — The Quincy boys basketball team almost climbed out of an 11-point hole Thursday, but could not make the potential tying and go-ahead free throws in the closing seconds against Prosser. “They jumped out 11-0 to start the game, but we were slowly able to cut into the lead,” Jacks coach Wade Petersen said.

NCW hoops recap: ’Twas a streak-ending day

The Tonasket boys basketball team lost for the first time this season on Tuesday, while the Waterville girls posted a victory for the first time in two years. Brewster came up big from outside in the third quarter to pull away for a 69-53 victory over Tonasket on the first day of play in the Brewster Christmas Tournament.

SULTAN — Even on the bus ride home, Cashmere coach Keith Boyd was not 100 percent sure his team’s game was actually over. “It seems like it’s still in the air,” Boyd said, exaggerating how long Sultan’s high-arcing, potential-game-winning shot took to hit the rim and bounce out. “It hung in the air a long time, but we got the last rebound and time ran out.”

Eastmont gets nod in all-league

The Eastmont football team turned itself around this season, going from a perennial middle-of-the-pack finisher to one win away from a league title and a state tournament berth. As a result, two of the biggest reasons for the turnaround have some hardware to show for it.
