NO CHILD LEFT INSIDE: Spring is great time to take kids for a snow day

I’m not a huge fan of spring, particularly March and April. Trying to will away the overcast skies and will in the beautiful weather must take a toll on my kids and me. In the valley the signs of our mild winter are quickly disappearing. If only we could easily see beyond the hills to be reminded that the mountains still have plenty of snow, beckoning us to continue to come and play.

Tigers just miss taking home a trophy at state

PORTLAND — According to La Grande head coach Klel Carson, it takes being good and a little luck to be successful at the state wrestling tournament. And, the Tigers had just the good part going their way at the Class 4A tournament at Memorial Coliseum in Portland Friday and Saturday.

La Grande finished six points out of bringing home a state trophy. The Tigers finished in seventh place with 57 points, while Elmira grabbed the final trophy for fourth with 63 points. Crook County dominated the tournament with 406.5 points more than 100 points better than the previous record of 303, set by 5A Hermiston in 2009. Henley was second with 159.

UNION — Great players can seemingly win a basketball game on their own. More often than not, they need some help.

The Union girls basketball team has Keesha Sarman. Oakland has Cora Gallop. Both can score at will and have the ability to take over a game. However, Sarman received more assistance during the Class 2A state play-in game Friday in Union.


The Bobcats leaned on Sarman in the beginning of a 75-45 win. After an initial burst, a personal 7-0 run by Sarman, everyone started getting involved.

“That’s kind of our game plan,” Union head coach Rhondie Johansen said. “We like to jump out quick. It was pretty intense with this gym being as packed and as loud as it was. So to be able to take a little breath in the being was nice. It settles us into our gameplan a little more. Keesha is just a great athlete, what do you do.


Local wrestlers set for semifinals

PORTLAND — With the opening day of the Class 4A wrestling tournament in the books, La Grande still has seven wrestlers hoping to bring home a medal.

The Tigers currently sit in four place as a team with 40 points. Crook County closed out the opening day with 180 points, while Henley is in second with 93.
