Huskies hound Cougars

HUNGRY HUSKY: Freshman Kirsten Crow connects with a pitch during a season opening sweep against Wallowa Friday. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
ELGIN — It took a game for the reigning state champions to heat up Friday.

Elgin/Imbler opened the season with a sweep against Wallowa  9-4 and 16-5.

Without their sophomore ace Tara Ludwig, Katie Griffin and Kacie Merrigan picked up for Elgin/Imbler.
