THE HARD FACTS: Coaches made a great choice

Floored. That is the best way to describe the feeling of opening the Class 2A girls basketball all-state team email. Honestly, I thought the coaches would get it wrong. But, in the end I think the voting for the Player of the Year went down the way it should have. 

HARDER: Special District 6 evaporates before the softball season starts

All good things must come to an end, so they say.

While most of Oregon was watching the classification changes next year very closely, it was easy to miss changes that would affect this season. 

Time to hand out postseason awards

Every year the all-league teams come out. Sometimes I’m left scratching my head. Maybe it’s the world of fantasy sports we live in. Everyone, if they so choose, can build their own team. It’s like being an arm-chair quarterback with a little general manager flare thrown in. 

THE HARD FACTS: All we need Hackman on the bench

It’s not quite that feeling of Hickory versus the state of Indiana, but the Class 1A boys state basketball tournament in Baker City could certainly draw some comparisons to that mind set.

Learning the lingo

One month in and my mastery of the sports language is starting to come together. At least, that’s what I’d like to say.

Sports season paradise in Baker

The best two weeks in the sports season are nearly over. Call it the high school version of March Madness. There are state basketball tournaments all over Oregon, but no one does it like Baker City.

HARDER: Joseph gives Hulse star treatment

The South is known for kindness. Philadelphia is the city of “brotherly love”. I just think no one has taken enough time to think about the caring communities of Eastern Oregon to come up with a nickname or spread the persona through word of mouth.

JOHNSON: Getting used to a new place

I am Joshua Allen Johnson, the new sports and outdoors writer for the La Grande Observer. 

Tigers set the mood by giving back to children

La Grande soccer players show off the bounty of a shopping spree prior to the Class 4A state championshop game. The toys went to the Dorenbecher Children’s Hospital.

When you think of high school students does the word selfless come to mind? 

Farewell, for now

This isn’t an easy thing for me to do, but after more than four years of being at The Observer, I am moving on.
