Tigers win, but lose starter

The La Grande Tigers did just what was expected in a blowout win of Greater Oregon League rival Ontario, but now face the prospect of not having one of their top scorers for a couple of weeks.

Getting on track

La Grande may not have solved all its early season issues just yet, but Friday’s decimation of Greater Oregon League rival Ontario is an indicator that the team is righting the ship.

La Grande boys, girls earn blowout wins

Andrew Peasley scored 12 points, G.T. Blackman added 11, and 10 La Grande players scored as the Tigers routed Greater Oregon League rival Ontario, 62-26, Friday night in La Grande.

A surprising start

Union, Imbler collide again

Union and Imbler’s first Wapiti League basketball game of the season was expected to have major implications.

Outlaws win seven in Wallowa

Enterprise’s lightweight wrestlers continued their winning ways Wednesday at the Border Battle in Wallowa.

A calm competitor

Unionís Delanie Kohr, left, pulls down a rebound in a game last weekend against Joseph. The junior, who finished with 16 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in the win, is a three-sport standout for the Bobcats, and has taken on a greater leadership role on the basketball court this season.
Union’s Delanie Kohr represents a fairly stark contrast to the typical high school player. While many prep athletes ride emotional roller coasters, Kohr is exactly the opposite.

Bobcats earn decisive victory

Union senior Elly Wells whips a pass out of a Joseph double-team Saturday during the Bobcats 54-26 nonleague win.
Joseph came out with the full-court pressure, but it was Union’s defense that wreaked havoc on its opponent’s offense.

Panthers knock off Huskies

Imblerís Anu Kanoho, right, sets to go up for a shot against Elginís Devin Packard.
As it has done much of the season, Imbler received contributions throughout the lineup as it began Wapiti League action with a home victory.

A Trace of excellence

The term ‘basketball junkie’ gets tossed around quite often in the sport. But for Imbler’s Trace VanCleave, it fits him to a ‘T’.

Taking their game up a level

La Grandeís Josh Ebel, shown in a game against Ontario Oct. 17, will sign to play for the Eastern Oregon University menís soccer team and is one of three Tigers from last yearís squad signing with the Mountaineers. (Observer file photo)

Cove back to 8-man

The Cove football team, pictured here during a game against Imbler in 2013, will be back at the Class 1A 8-man level after the Cove School Board approved to halt the co-op with Union in 2A. The decision comes on the heels of the OSAA approving Coveís petition to go back down to 1A for all sports beginning in the fall of 2016. (Observer file photo)
It’s official: the Cove football team will be back competing at the Class 1A level.

Status quo for Elgin football program

Despite a recent push, the Elgin football team will continue competing as a Class 2A independent 8-man football team for the next two seasons.

Second quarter dooms Bobcats

Class 4A Ontario turned a slim Union first-quarter lead into a 10-point Tiger advantage with a huge second quarter, and the Tigers handed the 2A Bobcats their first loss of the season, winning 67-59 Tuesday night in Union.

Tigers cruise to road victory

The La Grande boys basketball team utilized a 26-point first quarter to sprint ahead of Vale, and a dominant third quarter carried the Tigers to a 59-32 rout of the Vikings in a nonleague game Tuesday in Vale.
