Neil, Outlaws corral Mustangs, Union grounds Rockets

ENTERPRISE — Consistency.

Maybe not in the line-up, but the Outlaws team is beginning to play well every night.

The Enterprise girls basketball team picked up a 50-45 win against Heppner Friday.

Outlaws head coach Mike Crawford said it's been a patchwork job the last few games.

Draft plan for Ladd Marsh includes habitat enhancement

Kevin Costner visited Union County in the summer of 1990, but it is not known if the popular actor stopped at the Ladd Marsh Wildlife Area.

Still, a line from Costner’s 1989 hit movie, “Field of Dreams,” is being used informally by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to describe its draft plan for the Ladd Marsh’s next 10 years — “Build it and they will come.’’

The ODFW plan calls for the maintenance and enhancement of the marsh’s diversified wildlife habitat. This will attract even more wildlife to the marsh.

Tigers maul duel field

Kids dream of a crowd cheering their name.

Daniel Blake lived that dream Thursday.

The senior rallied to win his wrestling match, and La Grande dominated its home dual against a trio of high schools.

Blake, maybe still in a euphoric state, had trouble putting feelings into words.

Stepping down

Teresa Dowdy stood at the podium, fighting back tears, trying to speak, trying to announce an important message to players and parents at this varsity volleyball season-ending banquet.

The room went quiet. Silent enough for a dropped fork to carry an echo.

And then, finally, on this mid-November night at La Grande High, right there in the commons, this six-time conference Coach of the Year battled through those choked-up vocal chords, announcing her retirement.

EOU unveils mascot

NEW FACE: EOU will showcase its new mascot Friday. - Submitted photo
Joining the growing number of university mascots that promote, dance and entertain their way into a fan's heart, Eastern Oregon University's new "Mountaineer" will make its first public appearance Friday, at the men's and women's basketball games against Warner Pacific College.

While the iconic character has yet to be named, its overall look and blue and gold apparel align with EOU's current effort to reshape the institution's future and promote a stronger and more viable organization.

Outlaws cage Huskies

That is the only word to describe the Outlaw's performance on Saturday.


That is how the Enterprise girls basketball team played on Tuesday, during a 64-40 win against Elgin.

Union girls win, boys fall short vs. Stanfield

STANFIELD - Union proved to be good at basketball and juggling Saturday.

A limited Bobcats line-up beat Stanfield, 45-38.

Union head coach Brett Dunten said he had to rework the starting five due to illness.

"We weren't able to go with the normal five," Dunten said. "Other girls filled in and made an impact."

Union/Powder pins down Outlaws, Joseph leads local pack at 1A preview tourney

PINNED DOWN: Union/Powder Valley wrestler Cooper Pierce takes down Enterprise's Jordon Lund during a match Friday. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
UNION — Prime time. It's what all events shoot for.

Union/Powder Valley hosted Enterprise in a wrestling dual for that reason, and didn't let the spectators down.

All seven matches ended by fall, with the Outlaws winning a lone match.

Imbler tidal wave engulfs Cove

MC-ATTACK: Imbler senior Taylor McIntosh (center) drives past Jared Witty (left) and another Cove defender on Saturday. McIntosh finished with 23 points. - The Observer/BRUCE MASON
COVE — It started like a calm day at sea, but suddenly, that ocean floor cracked, that tidal wave followed, and nothing but destruction was left in its wake.

Welcome to the scene Saturday at Cove High, as Imbler exploded tsunami-style in the second half, sending Leopards scampering to higher ground in a 63-25 rout.

Powder prevails, knocks off Joseph

EAGLES CLIPPED: Joseph guard Chris Harshman drives to the lane Friday at Powder Valley. - The Observer/BRUCE MASON
NORTH POWDER — There was Powder Valley junior Justin Allen, watching the ball come directly in front of him, listening to the crowd chant for one more defensive stop.

Tick, tock, went the clock. Thump, thump, went the spectators' hearts.

Powder led by one, and here came the basketball, entering the hands of Eagles guard Chris Harshman, and just as quickly, there it went, leaving those hands courtesy of a cat-like swipe from Mr. Allen.
