Tigers fall in season opener

Avery Albrecht got the La Grande girls basketball team off to a quick start, but Pendleton ended up making the needed adjustments in the season opener Wednesday.

Encore Performance

Unionís Sarah Good will aim at making it to Pendleton, the final site for the Class 2A tournament, for the second straight season. The Bobcats open the season at home against Crane at 6:30 p.m. tonight.

Union girls basketball team returns a strong group to challenge for a state title for a second straight season

What can Union do for an encore? That’s what the entire world of Class 2A watchers are wondering. Last season the Bobcats peaked at the right time — riding their momentum to the state championship game. Union finished third in the conference standings, but still found its way to the final site in Pendleton. The Bobcats fell to Regis 60-48 in the title game, and now look to move on with a new coach. 

Tigers ready for new season

La Grandeís Tyson Wicklander will try to improve on last seasonís 9-16 record.

Third-year head coach Mark Carollo is in for something new — having a team back that he’s spent some minutes with. 

When Carrolo took over the La Grande basketball team two years ago, he had 12 seniors on the team. 

Waiting game

La Grandeís Haley White tries to thread a pass during a game last season. The Tigers will try to repeat last yearís run to the Class 4A state championship game.

La Grande waits to see what’s in store for the girls basketball team 

Only time will tell what the La Grande girls basketball team has in store this season. Gone is a strong core of players who led the Tigers to the Class 4A state championship game last season, a 53-43 loss to Mazama.

EOU falls to Puget Sound

CALDWELL, IDAHO —Down by 17 points in the second half, the Eastern Oregon University women’s basketball team tried to come back, but fell short.

The Mountaineers lost to Puget Sound 82-77 to wrap up the Lady Yote Classic in Caldwell, Idaho, Saturday.

Panthers turn back the clock to 2008 Saturday

I started having flashbacks as the clock wound down at Hillsboro Stadium Saturday night. Imbler was wrapping up its second state title in school history with a victory against Lowell, 88-76.

Imbler, Lowell put on a track meet in the Class 1A title game bring home second state football championship

HILLSBORO — The Imbler football season ended the way every player dreams about — hoisting a championship trophy over their head, and being lost in a sea of family members after the game.

It took a while for that dream to become a reality. In part because Lowell would not fade into the cool late afternoon light until the fourth quarter. The Panthers put Lowell away in the fourth quarter to win their second Class 1A state title in four attempts. The latest coming with a 88-76 win Saturday at Hillsboro Stadium.

Panthers bring home title

HILLSBORO — Joe Griffin and Kyle Johnson put on an offensive clinic, and the Imbler defense made just enough stops to bring home the Class 1A state championship Saturday at Hillsboro Stadium.

Mountaineers silence Wolves

CALDWELL, Idaho — Walla Walla University grabbed a lead, but after making the opening basket of the game, not much else went right.

The Eastern Oregon University women’s basketball team cruised to a 96-34 win against the Wolves to open the Lady Yote Classic today.

Tigers bring in postseason awards

The hard work the La Grande football players put in during the offseason and throughout the year didn’t go unnoticed by the coaches in the Greater Oregon League.
