La Grande’s boys basketball team goes 10-0 on their home court

The La Grande boys basketball team entered Saturday’s matchup with Yamhill-Carlton undefeated on its home court.

And with that momentum at home, Yamhill-Carlton did not stand a chance, as La Grande pulled away for a 74-55 win in the first round of the Class 4A state playoffs. The win clinches a spot in the quarterfinal round of the Class 4A state tournament against Henley at 3:15 p.m. Thursday at Gill Coliseum in Corvallis.

BAKER CITY — The run-and-gun offense is exciting to watch. It led the Ione boys basketball team to a 20-6 overall record. But, the Cardinals ran into a team that can run-and-gun a little better. 

Ione and Powder Valley combined to shoot 156 shots during an OSAA Class 1A state tournament opening round game Thursday. The Badgers made more during a 92-66 win,  advancing to the semifinals in Baker City.

After a two-week break, the La Grande girls basketball team is ready to return to the court and make another postseason run.

NORTH POWDER — Beating an opposing team is one thing. Beating that same team by 41 points is another. But, beating a team with a separated shoulder takes it to a whole other level.

Tigers just miss taking home a trophy at state

PORTLAND — According to La Grande head coach Klel Carson, it takes being good and a little luck to be successful at the state wrestling tournament. And, the Tigers had just the good part going their way at the Class 4A tournament at Memorial Coliseum in Portland Friday and Saturday.

La Grande finished six points out of bringing home a state trophy. The Tigers finished in seventh place with 57 points, while Elmira grabbed the final trophy for fourth with 63 points. Crook County dominated the tournament with 406.5 points more than 100 points better than the previous record of 303, set by 5A Hermiston in 2009. Henley was second with 159. 

Rohan: Sweet Revenge

UNION — Great players can seemingly win a basketball game on their own. More often than not, they need some help.

The Union girls basketball team has Keesha Sarman. Oakland has Cora Gallop. Both can score at will and have the ability to take over a game. However, Sarman received more assistance during the Class 2A state play-in game Friday in Union.


The Bobcats leaned on Sarman in the beginning of a 75-45 win. After an initial burst, a personal 7-0 run by Sarman, everyone started getting involved.

“That’s kind of our game plan,” Union head coach Rhondie Johansen said. “We like to jump out quick. It was pretty intense with this gym being as packed and as loud as it was. So to be able to take a little breath in the being was nice. It settles us into our gameplan a little more. Keesha is just a great athlete, what do you do.


Local wrestlers set for semifinals

PORTLAND — With the opening day of the Class 4A wrestling tournament in the books, La Grande still has seven wrestlers hoping to bring home a medal.

The Tigers currently sit in four place as a team with 40 points. Crook County closed out the opening day with 180 points, while Henley is in second with 93.
