Tiger girls end brief skid

VALE — Just breathe.

La Grande finally did, and picked up its first win of the season.

The Tigers girls basketball team defeated Vale 41-36, improving to 1-2 on the season.

From Iraq to Cove, Gorham shines

He could hear the rocket coming, eerily whistling in his ear.

Then came the blast, then the impact, then that profound, odd concussion in his chest.

Todd Gorham pinned against those sandbags in Kirkuk, Iraq, held his hands behind his head, covering it from raining rocks and debris just three days into this call of duty, wondering how he would make it through an entire year.

FRUITLAND, IDAHO — Timing is everything, and La Grande's was a little off.

The Tigers girls basketball team struggled against a more seasoned Fruitland squad during a 45-17 loss Saturday.

"They're mid-way through their season already," La Grande head coach Jim MacKay said. "We are not at that point yet. The offense is still coming along. These girls have the talent to do better things on the court."

La Grande wins Baker swim meet

BAKER CITY -— Winning at full strength is great, but finding a way to win when that's not the case is even better.

The La Grande boys swimming team snuck past Class 5A Pendleton to claim the Baker Invitational Swim Meet Saturday.

Despite missing eight swimmers from the team, La Grande head coach Darren Dutto said it was a great performance.

Whittled down Tigers take two titles

After 826 matches during the two-day Muilenberg Invite La Grande ended with two titles.

The Tigers had the position — with ten wrestlers advancing to the semifinals — but inexperience showed in the latter rounds — only two made it the the championship match —, said La Grande head coach Klel Carson.

Leopards attacked by antelopes

When antelopes are under attack from predators, their principle defense is to jump away and use their speed to escape.

How fitting.

When Leopards tried attacking Adrian Antelopes at Cove High on Saturday, those escape mechanisms were present.

Tigers hold lead at Muilenburg

Day one.

Done and dominating.

Day two.

Anyone's guess.

Kevan, Winde lead La Grande charge

BANK ROLL: La Grande's Luke Kevan uses the glass to score two points during a 69-44 win against Kellogg, Idaho, Friday. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
Not all wins come in pretty little packages — even in a blowout.

La Grande cruised past Kellogg, Idaho, 69-44 in a game that almost didn't happen.

Kellogg called the Tigers hoping to get a game in.

Wrestlers flock to LHS by the hundreds

Don't fear if you see busloads of boys weighing 115 and up flooding over the mountains and descending onto La Grande.

It's not an invasion.

The Muilenburg Tournament is here again.

Elk hunt of a lifetime

Todd Erickson, left, of McMinnville took this elk in north Wallowa County in November. The bull's green score of 398 for non-typical antlers means it might be the third best in state history in its category. Erickson is shown with his son T.J., who accompanied him on the hunt. - Photo/JON WICK
Elk hunter Todd Erickson felt exhaustion in every ounce of his body as he crawled into his sleeping bag at 1 a.m. one day last month in north Wallowa County.

Erickson had reason to be drained. The McMinnville man had just completed two climbs — one up a steep canyon and another up the all-time state elk hunting list.
