Baseball: All but perfect for NV

May 27, 2012 by  

Naches Valley can’t derail undefeated Cashmere in Class 1A title game || YAKIMA, Wash. — Sometime, somewhere Cashmere will lose another high school baseball game.

Baseball: EV goes out with a win

May 27, 2012 by  

YAKIMA, Wash. — Fatigue, Hugo Lemus insisted, had nothing to do with it. “Tired?” he asked rhetorically. “No, I wasn’t tired. I just turned spectator there in the last inning and decided to take it all in.” No one could blame the senior right-hander, after all, he’d just punctuated a stellar East Valley career with [...]

Baseball: DeSales on top again

May 27, 2012 by  

ELLENSBURG, Wash. — For a team with such a lengthy state-championship pedigree, DeSales’ baseball team has endured an unusually long dry spell in recent seasons. That finally ended Saturday as the Irish rolled past Asotin 9-2 in the Class 2B state championship game Saturday at Rotary Park. The victory secured the school’s 17th state baseball title, [...]

Track: NV’s Taylor wins second javelin title

May 27, 2012 by  

CHENEY, Wash. — Knee surgery last fall put Naches Valley’s Kelsie Taylor on crutches for six weeks and on a delayed schedule for all of the spring track and field season.

Track: Riverside Christian boys win 2B title

May 27, 2012 by  

CHENEY, Wash. — It was a matter of first things first for Riverside Christian’s Fernando Valencia. Coming into the start of one of Saturday’s concluding events, he knew that if he won the javelin, his team could win a state track and field championship. His first throw put him and his team into first place, [...]

Track: Ike’s Schreiber takes third

May 27, 2012 by  

TACOMA, Wash. — Youngster that he is, Drew Schreiber felt all week that it was a season highlight just to earn a trip to the Class 4A state track and field championships. But that was a sophomore respecting his elders. Once here, Eisenhower’s emerging 800-meter prodigy did far more than take in the sights at [...]

Track: Wapato’s Ibarra, E’burg girls fourth

May 27, 2012 by  

TACOMA, Wash. — Wapato’s Nacho Ibarra ran one fast 400 meters on Saturday and Ellensburg’s girls put together four fast 400s during the final day of the Class 2A state track and field championships.

Fastpitch: Miscues cost Selah a trophy

May 27, 2012 by  

SELAH, Wash. — Kylee Fullerton was stretching in the on-deck circle as the Selah fastpitch team was preparing to bat in the top of the third inning of its still-scoreless Class 2A state semifinal game against Tumwater. Vikings batting coach Ben Graf approached Fullerton and, with a nod of his head toward Selah’s leadoff batter [...]

Fastpitch: Chehalis rolls to crown

May 27, 2012 by  

SELAH, Wash. — In his 10th season as the Chehalis fastpitch coach, Mike Keen had navigated the Bearcats to remarkable success — seven top-four trophies — but had never felt the ice-water-bucket dunking reserved for state championship moments. So he relished the sweet, anticipatory moments following Chehalis’ 15-3 Class 2A title-game rout of Evergreen Conference [...]
