La Grande gets another shot at Ontario

By all accounts it’s been a solid regular season for the La Grande boys basketball team. But the Tigers aren’t ready to call it a success just yet. There is still more the team is looking to accomplish.

“One of our goals was to make it to state,” Tigers head coach Mark Carollo said.

Joseph grabs opening round upset against Cove 

BAKER CITY — All tournaments should have at least one upset. The Joseph boys basketball provided it for the Old Oregon League postseason tournament in the final game of the day. 

The Eagles entered the game as the No. 6 seed, finishing the season 1-9 during the regular season in league play. It didn’t look that way during a 58-43 win against No. 3 seed Cove Thursday.

Teams head to Baker looking for state spots

With three spots into the state playoffs, two teams are nearly assured of punching tickets — Imbler and Powder Valley. Both teams cruised through the rest of the league schedule after splitting games against each other.

The Panthers achieved success while learning on the job. Powder Valley had the comfort of bringing back an experienced core of players.

This is the La Grande girls’ third year in a row to take home the championship title with an undefeated league season. 

Tigers keep streak in tact

GRESHAM — The La Grande Tigers girls swim team won the OSAA 4A/3A/2A/1A Special District 2 title in dramatic fashion. The team was on the bus ready to head back to La Grande with a second place trophy in hand when the La Salle Prep athletic director ran to the bus to exchange trophies. A scoring error had originally placed La Salle on top. When the scores were corrected, La Grande prevailed with 211 points over La Salle’s 200 points. Valley Catholic girls took third with 196 points.  

It’s Tigers head coach Darren Dutto’s eighth district title in a row.
