For Real.

That was the statement made by the EOU men's basketball team during a weekend sweep of Cascade Collegiate Conference foes.

Following a workman-like win against Southern Oregon University, the Mountaineers made the game look easy again against NAIA No. 11 Oregon Institute of Technology.

Badgers bully Bobcasts in championship

UNION — The Badgers boys basketball team proved to be too much for host Union at the Lions Club Tournament Saturday.

Powder Valley won 76-46 to clinch the championship.

Jordan Pratt led Badgers with 25 points.

Imbler dream ends in title game

UNDER CENTER: Imbler senior quarterback Nick Thompson eyes the field as he lines up under sophomore center BrentTeeter. Thompson rushed for a 3-yard touchdown as well as two 2-point conversions in his last game as an Imbler Panther. - Observer photos/BRUCE MASON
HILLSBORO — As the game clock ticked away, their eyes began to puddle with tears, their lips began to tremble, and right then and there on this first dreary day of December, the dream was over, and that other team in orange and black would be crowned champions.

Panther Party Pooper. Mohawk Madness.

Ulmer finds redemption in opener

DRIVING IN: EOU post Tiffany Ulmer drives to the hoop during an 80-78 overtime win in the Cascade Collegiate Conferecne opener against Southern Oregon University Friday. - Observer photos/PAUL HARDER
Tiffany Ulmer received an age old sports lesson Friday night — you can go from goat to hero or visa versa in a matter of minutes.

Ulmer chose option number one during a 80-78 overtime win against the visiting Raiders from Klamath Falls.

While it wasn't just Ulmer missing close range shots, she should have felt weighted down by bricks.

Mountaineers cruise in conference opener

PICK ONE: EOU leading scorer Mark Carollo (above) finished with 11 points. The Mountaineers had six players in double figures Friday. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
As the music wound down Josh Landsverk found himself in the final chair — or so it seemed.

EOU played its game of musical chairs to see who the leading scorer would be during a 84-64 win against Southern Oregon University.

Landsverk finished the game with a season-high 19 points.

"That's what I like about this team," Landsverk said. "One person can have an off night, but there's always someone there to fill in."

Tigers sneak past Fruitland

SENIOR SHOT: Cody McKague connected on two 3-pointers during a 59-56 win against Fruitland Friday. - Observer file photo
Call it first game jitters or a wake up call — no matter what you term it, it's a win.

The La Grande boys basketball team opened the season with a 59-56 win against visiting Fruitland Friday.

Tigers head coach Aaron Miles said the team got more than the bargained for.

La Grande ready to roll out the mats

They're a different breed of athlete, kind of like a bulldog differing from a terrier.

They roll on mats. Grapple. Tumble. And fight for every ounce of energy required in such a grueling sport.


So demanding physically, so demanding mentally.

Tigers searching for an identity

SENIOR LEADERSHIP: Anthony Nice is counted on for more than just scoring points on the floor. La Grande head coach Aaron Miles said "his senior is like another coach." Nice and the Tigers will put their skills to the test tonight against Fruitland at 7 p.m. - Observer file photo/PAUL HARDER
Tick ... Tick ... Tick...

That's the only sound Tigers boys basketball head coach Aaron Miles heard following a loss to Brookings Harbor in the second round of the state playoffs.

A double overtime loss, 57-52.

Tick ... Tick ... Tick ...

Of dams and dynamite

This is how one of the buildings that was part of the old Union fish hatchery complex looked when the facility was operating from the early 1920s to 1937 - Photo courtesy of Jerry Gildemeister and from the Dick Bonney collection
The buildings stand quietly and inauspiciously today east of Union on Highway 203, housing Oregon State Parks equipment and facilities.

No obvious evidence exists indicating that the structures were once linked to a violent chapter in Union's history.

The tale begins in the early 1920s when the buildings were constructed for a new state fish hatchery. Trout were raised there and then stocked in area streams and high mountain lakes in the Wallowas.

Imbler seniors come full circle

THOMPSON TIME: Nick Thompson and the Panthers will make their first trip to the state championship football game Saturday in Hillsboro. It will be the final high school game for the senior quarterback. - Observer file photo/PAUL HARDER
Today they'll pack the gymnasium at the pep rally, supporting those varsity athletes wearing big smiles from a successful season.

Teachers. Parents. Students. Alumni. Community members. They'll all stare at those Imbler Panthers — the kids readying for battle Saturday at 11 a.m. versus Mohawk at Hillsboro Stadium for the OSAA 1A state championship.

This is it.
