Athletic trainers prepared to answer questions

Who’s taking care of your kids?

The National Athletic Trainers’ Association answered that question, and many others during the month of March.

Mountain Valley Therapy, in La Grande, will address that question at an informational meeting for parents and kids at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Tigers tumble versus Rockets; white out cancels Nyssa contest

SPRING WEATHER? Tigers pitcher Boo Christman winds up Friday. - The Observer/BRUCE MASON
ISLAND CITY — It was not a day to stand in the field, waiting in between pitches.

Snow dropped from the sky. The wind chill was bitter. And La Grande and Pilot Rock bundled up, playing in weather more suited for the Iditarod dog sled race, rather than softball.

But Pilot Rock fought through these cruddy, nasty conditions Friday, defeating host La Grande, 13-7.

“We slept for the first three innings of the ball game,” Tigers coach Kevin Kohr said. “Pilot Rock was mentally ready to play. The weather didn’t matter to them.

First Ski Anthony Lakes Triathlon

North Powder — The Ski Anthony Lakes Triathlon proved successful March 16 despite competitors having to battle their way through soft snow.

The first leg of the race was a 3-kilometer run. Competitors found it difficult to obtain secure footing, making for a long slog.

After pumping up the last hill to the bike exchange, racers snagged up their bikes and attempted pedaling against the soft, fresh-fallen snow. Comical and entertaining for spectators, the bike leg was by far the most treacherous for racers. Most ran along side of, or carried their bikes through the second leg.

Huskies labeled the hunted

Dugouts are full of optimism, shouting words of encouragement, spurring on teammates in the batter’s box.

This is when one pitch can turn an inning. One inning can turn a game. One game can turn a season.

Baseball. It’s here.

EOU ends Tucson swing on a high note

TUCSON, Ariz. — Call it a good way to end a tournament.

EOU softball followed its win-loss pattern true to form, winning two of three games Wednesday at the Tucson Invitational, finishing with a 4-3 record in the Grand Canyon State. 

In the opener, EOU stomped on McPherson College (Kan.) 8-1.

Bobcats, Cubs vying for the open seat

While winter weather spills into spring, area softball teams are beginning to heat up.

The landscape of Class 2A District 6 received a massive change when Elgin/Imbler, the defending state champions, moved to Class 3A.

Enrollment numbers forced the No. 1 team to find a new home. Coaches see the change as a positive and a negative.

Tigers set to defend diamond title

They strolled down Adams Avenue, medals worn around necks, smiles on faces, celebrating their eruption created in Keizer Volcanoes Stadium hours earlier.

La Grande varsity baseball ended 2007 with a magic rally, a magic finish, and there they were, celebrating with their

community in an honorable June parade.

As state champions.

Metal bats? No need for Union

SLIDING HOME: The Bobcats’ Cody Billman (2-for-3, two doubles, RBI) slides into home in the second inning Tuesday. - The Observer/BRUCE MASON
UNION — He strolled into the batter’s box, digging in, eyeing the mound, readying for incoming heat.

It was the bottom of the sixth. Tie game. And here was Bobcats freshman Austin Woodward, leading off, holding his wooden bat, keeping that front foot closed.

And here came the pitch.

EOU track competes at Linfield Events meet

McMINNVILLE —Sometimes average is good enough. To EOU track, it certainly was.

At the Linfield Combined Events Meet (Heptathlon and Decathlon), EOU was average in most events, but wound up solid across the board.

Kasie Gillespie, a 2007 NAIA Heptathlon All American, sits atop her 16-woman field. Joining her is pole vault specialist Cayla Weissert, who, in her first heptathlon competition, sits in 11th place. Also, Erin Ontko (12th place) and Carla Hoppie (16th place) are right behind.

Union baseball beats Sherman County, 9-1

UNION — Welcome home.

After spending a week and a half in John Day, the Bobcats baseball team returned home in style.

Behind the arm of Brian Savely, Union defeated Sherman County, 9-1.

“We wanted to get (Brian) some work,” Bobcats head coach Greg Poor said. “He’s been closing out games, but hadn’t thrown too much lately.”
