Union rolled to a 13-1 record and a conference title last season.
This year the conference title is open for grabs.
One team is rebuilding. Another is looking
to avenge last year's defeat in the title game. And a few others will
be trying to make a run for that precious Old Oregon League title.

Those colors belong to Imbler athletics. Now, you can add another: red.
You know, the colors of two rings and a circle making up a bullseye?
UNION — Experience paved the way to an opening win for the Bobcats Tuesday.
Union cruised to a 71-38 victory over Prairie City in the season opener.
Union coach Brad Dunten said the game was a little of a surprise.
"We executed really well,'' Dunten said. "It was almost hard to
tell it was the first game. The boys ran the court really well and got
some easy points.''
Like a jigsaw puzzle, the Mountaineers women's
basketball team continues sliding the pieces into the proper slots,
chipping away at the big picture.
They took another step at solving the artistic riddle Monday, defeating host Whitman, 65-56.
Laura Olsen (16 points) and Breana Olson (12 points) were the
offensive pieces, interlocking with defensive pieces Sheena Henderson
(8 rebounds) and Tiffanie Ulmer (9 rebounds).
If you see Nick Thompson today, do him a favor.
Tell the Imbler quarterback this magic carpet ride is reality,
not a dream. Tell him that scoreboard Saturday reading Imbler 68, South
Wasco 46 was real, not stage five sleep.
Go ahead. Grab two fingers, place them on his right arm, and give him a slight squeeze.
KENOSHA, Wisc. — A difficult Wisconsin course and a fast field got the best of the Mountaineers' cross country teams Saturday.
On the men's side EOU finished 19th.
Individually, Zach Heath got a strong start, faded after 2.75
miles and then rallied well over the last 800-meters to finish first
NORTH POWDER — It was centered
across the end zone, written in red and blue, symbolizing the Powder
Valley mindset in this OSAA quarterfinal playoff game.
MISSED CHANCES: Powder Valley junior Justin Allen tries to reel in a potential touchdown pass from quarterback Keegan Conro at the Mohawk goal line in the second quarter. However, the ball was tipped into the air and intercepted, resulting in one of several misssed opportunities in the first half for Powder Valley. Mohawk scored 22 points in the second quarter and took a 40-6 lead into halftime, putting the game well out of reach. - The Observer/PAUL HARDER
There it stood, a word of high self-esteem and respect, clearly
visible on dry grass. But in the end, the lettering was torn and
smeared, partly from Mother Nature, partly from Mohawk players crossing
the goal line nine times.
Perfection no longer remains, but if you would've presented Ryan Looney with a 6-1 record before the season started, well...
"I would've said, ‘I'll take it,'" the EOU men's basketball
coach said Sunday night, one day after returning from a two-game
tournament in Caldwell, Idaho.
At that College of Idaho Golden Rule Shootout, EOU rallied
from an early deficit to win Saturday, and also played tough against
Divsion-1 Westminister on Friday, despite losing.
Every success starts with a plan — some just take longer to carry out.
The Eastern Oregon men's cross country team met one of its goals
after qualifying for the national meet in Kenosha, Wis., today.
Mountaineers head coach Ben Welch said it took a change of mind.
"It took the team a while to buy into the program," Welch said.
"We faced a combination of problems, none of which are conducive to
Cross country is a pandora's box for the selfish.
