JOSEPH — The Eagle Cap Extreme Sled Dog Races got their start under blue skies Thursday afternoon at Ferguson Ridge Ski Area outside of Joseph. Six 200-mile teams, 10 100-mile teams and three teams in the 62-mile pot race took off for the hills in front of hundreds of cheering fans.
La Grande had every reason to come into Thursday night’s dual against Baker with a little extra confidence. The Tigers had just placed second at the Oregon Wrestling Classic, also known as the state championship of dual meets, according to La Grande head coach Klel Carson.
You can call Dylan Reece a team player. The La Grande senior performed the old sports cliche of taking one for the team during a dual against Baker City Thursday night. But, Reece turned an obstacle into a chance to get better.

The moment the La Grande girls basketball team dreaded happened to coincide with a day it had been looking forward to. The Tigers opened the Greater Oregon League schedule at home against McLoughlin, and also will be without Lexus Miller-Moylan.
Miller-Moylan’s family moved to Beaverton, and the junior went to join her family.
