Tigers set for Estacada

Huddling around the laptop Friday night, several Tigers coaches could not hide their glee upon learning their berth into the OSAA playoffs.

Can they do it? Tigers look to bring home OSAA title

Imagine the thought.

The volleyball strikes the hardwood floor. The scoreboard clicks to 25. The crowd roars. The bench jumps. And at that moment of jubilation and exhilaration, you will be the best 4A team in Oregon.

Lactose Intolerance

LOOK OF DESPAIR: Erich Mielke is left pondering a 1-0 loss to Tillamook, while the Cheesemakers celebrate in the background - Observer photos/PAUL HARDER
Soccer balls can take precarious bounces, and Tuesday in the opening round of the state playoffs, the bounces did not go La Grande's way.

A subdued Tigers boys soccer team walked off the field after falling to Tillamook, 1-0.

La Grande head coach Zachary Lauritzen looked shell shocked, and was left searching for answers.

EOU camaraderie translates to success

The journey started back in August, when they departed La Grande for Central America.

Coming off their best season in school history, the EOU men's basketball team was eager to jump-start this 2007 campaign, eager to lace up the sneakers, eager to throw on the jerseys, eager to fly up and down those foreign courts.

Mountaineers gearing up after serious losses

POST PRESENCE: Sheena Hednerson and the Mountaineers women's basketball team will attempt to continue their conference dominance. EOU is 62-10 over the last four seasons in the Cascade Collegiate Conference.
A challenging season certainly increased its degree of difficulty in mid-October for Mountaineers women's basketball.

There was starting point guard Whitney Leman, taking part in practice, ready to embark on her final collegiate season.

Already finished with school, Leman chose to return to La Grande from her native Alaska and take classes this year, just so she could pull over that EOU uniform and play this sport again.

Bobcats running wild on and off the course

FAST BUT NOT FURIOUS: The Union/Powder Valley boys cross country team returned home with a state championship in tow. Tom Sheehy finished 11th out of 125 runners at the meet. Sheehy's mark of 16:56 left him four seconds outside the top-10.
EUGENE — Only one thing may be able to stop the mind of a high school kid — much less one returning home with a state championship — a grounded adult.

After returning home from the Class 3A/2A/1A State Cross Country Championships with the boys first-place trophy, Union/Powder Valley head coach Steve Sheehy is trying to keep his team grounded.

Tigers taking game to Eugene

PETTEY GOOD: La Grande's Johanna Pettey digs a ball against Stayton during a four-game win Saturday.
Grab that ticket to Eugene. Grab those OSAA playoff tickets to Lane Community College. Then hop aboard this Tigers freight train chugging toward a championship.

Goodbye, OSAA Sweet 16.

Hello, Duck Country.

Maybe soon enough, we'll call it Tiger Country.

Panther payback - Imbler moving on to Forest Grove

PANTHER PERFECTION: Imbler seniors Amanda Bigej (right) and Liz Eckstein (left) avenged last year's playoff defeat to Condon/Wheeler. The Panthers will face Crow at 3:15 p.m. Friday at Pacific University.
IMBLER — Did you feel that rumbling coming from Imbler Saturday afternoon?

It wasn't an earthquake. Nor a tremor. Just a pack of Panthers jumping in excitement.

Imbler Panthers, that is. And they created such ground-shaking effects upon defeating Condon/Wheeler (25-23, 20-25, 25-11, 26-24), earning a trip into the OSAA final eight at Pacific University.

Tigers scary, lose by 50

TIGERS TUMBLE: Despite finishing 1-8, Greater Oregon League third-seed La Grande will host Estacada (7-2) either Friday or Saturday in the OSAA playoffs.
Apparently Halloween is a three-day holiday in La Grande.

Scary offense. Creepy defense. Chilling special teams. Even author Stephen King would've been horrified with the Tigers' display Friday night in their 50-0 loss versus Ontario at EOU Community Stadium.


Heppner dominates title tilt

LINED UP: Elgin wide receiver Will Burgess checks his position prior to a play against Heppner Friday. The Huskies dropped the conference title game 48-0.
ELGIN — Elgin attempted to corral the Mustangs Friday in a conference title game.

It turned out to be a bad idea — call it a stampede.

Heppner bucked any ideas of a loss — and an offensive score.

Huskies head coach Chad Peck said the opposition won each battle.
