Elgin and Imbler opt for baseball co-op

ELGIN — Elgin and Imbler high schools are almost set to combine forces on the baseball diamond this spring.

The Elgin School Board voted Thursday to have Elgin High School form a baseball co-op with Imbler High School this spring. The Imbler School Board earlier voted in support of co-op. The co-op will become official once it is approved by the Oregon School Activities Association. The OSAA is expected to vote on the co-op very soon, said Elgin School District Superintendent Wayne Herron.

The new co-op team would compete at the Class 3A level, which is for schools with 191 to 330 students. Elgin competes in the Class 2A classification for schools with 90 to 190 students. Imbler is in the Class 1A category for schools with under 90 students.

Elgin is expected to have 15 players on the co-op team and Imbler is expected to have four to five, Herron said. The approximately 20 players the team would have will allow for more junior varsity games to be played.

“We will be able to have a good junior varsity schedule,’’ Herron said. “This will help the development of our younger players.’’

Imbler High School was a part of a baseball co-op in 2013 with Wallowa High School. IHS players had to travel to Wallowa for practices and home games.  

Imbler School District Superintendent Doug Hislop said IHS players received excellent coaching from WHS’s staff but that the new proposed co-op would be better for IHS players because they will have to travel much less. Imbler is about 8 miles from Elgin and 35 miles from Wallowa.
