Tigers wrap up league title

ONTARIO — For a perfect Greater Oregon League season, the  Tigers beat Ontario 54-45 Friday. 

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

With Kylin Collman and another girl ill and Avery Albrecht unable to play due to an injury, the Tigers relied on Haley White to keep them in the game. 

The Tigers started the game with a 9-0 run kicked off by a 3-pointer from Collman. Ontario pushed back and made a 10-2 rally ending the first quarter 11-10. 

“And that’s how the whole game went,” head coach Doug Girdner said. 

White shut down the opposing post, playing all but about two minutes of the entire game. 

“White was the biggest key to our victory,” Girdner said. 

In addition, La Grande’s girls shot 51 percent from the field, a feat they have only been able to accomplish once previously in the season. 

Collman ended the game with 15 points, three from 3-pointers. Rachel Alexander, who filled in for Albrecht, scored 10 points. Kali Avila also had 10 points and added eight rebounds and seven assists. 

Ontario’s Rylee Salutregui scored 15 points for her team and Aliya Yano finished the night with eight points. 

La Grande (15-5 overall, 6-0 GOL) will be at home this Saturday for a district game. Their opponent will be determined later this week.

Tigers streak comes to an end

ONTARIO — The La Grande boys basketball teams winning streak was brought to an end by Ontario in a 51-47 loss Friday. 

The Tigers had won 16 in a row, beating Ontario in their previous matchup a couple of weeks ago by 15 points. 

La Grande’s head coach Mark Carollo said it was senior night for Ontario and they came out with a lot more energy. 

“We didn’t shoot the ball very well and we were behind all game until the the fourth quarter,” Carollo said. 

The end of the Tigers winning streak is by no means the end of their season. 

“I never gave much thought to it, it was fun while it lasted but now it’s time to refocus and get back to work,” Carollo said. 

La Grande’s Tyson Wicklander finished with 16 points, while Troy Williams had 13 points. Brandon Dall finished the night with 11 points. 

Ontario’s Kyler Vogt scored 13 points, Ryan Hawker ended with 12 points and Jason Haueter finished with nine.

The Tigers (17-3 overall, 5-1 GOL) will be at home this Saturday for a district game starting at 6:30 p.m. Their opponent will be determined later this week. starting at 5 p.m. Their opponent will be determined later this week.
