Baker teams preparing for start of state playoffs

Three Baker High School athletic teams will begin the state playoffs this weekend, and two others will be thinking about the postseason as well.

Baker’s girls and boys cross country teams and the girls volleyball team open the “third season” Saturday on the west side of the state. The Bulldogs’ girls soccer team and football team will be gearing up for state action a few days later.


Cross country

The Baker cross country teams will visit Lane Community College Saturday for the Class 4A state meet.

The girls advance to state as the Greater Oregon League district champions, the boys as district runnersup.

Members of the girls team are Melissa Clarke, Felicia Schneider, Kori Rayborn, Annika Yates, Charlotte Bowers, Mary Bulger, Haley Adams and Ellen Jampolsky.

Members of the boys team are Trevor Freese, Jacob Payton, Brandon Lowry, Jake Sandefur, Skyler Young, Joe Anderson, Kristian Krohn and Erik Robertson.

In Eugene, the 4A girls race is scheduled to begin at 11:25 a.m., and the boys at noon.

Tickets are $8 adults and $5 students. Gates open at 8:30 a.m.

 


Volleyball

The Baker volleyball team travels to Grants Pass for a 5 p.m. matchup Saturday against sixth-ranked Hidden Valley.

The Bulldogs, the Greater Oregon League’s runnerup, tuned up for state last weekend by defeating Mac-Hi 25-11, 25-15, 26-24.

Against Mac-Hi, Tara Talbott was 19-of-22 hitting with 13 kills, Andrea Wilson 10-of-11 serving with 2 aces, Savannah Daly 38-of-40 setting with 13 assists, and Whitney Phillips 32-of-35 setting with 10 assists.

The winner of Saturday’s match advances to the Class 4A state tournament Nov. 7-8 at Lane Community College in Eugene.

Tickets for Saturday’s match are $6 adults and $4 students.

 


Girls soccer

Baker will have their eyes on this weekend’s state playoffs as well.

Baker doesn’t play this weekend, having earned a first-round bye, but the Bulldogs will be interested in the outcome of the Cottage Grove-Western Mennonite contest. The winner of that game Saturday will visit Baker for a 1 p.m. matchup Tuesday.

“We’re hoping it will be Western Mennonite,” said Baker coach DeeDee Clarke. “We’d like a little revenge for what they did to us two years ago in the playoffs.”

Western Mennonite nipped the Bulldogs 1-0 on a controversial goal under rainy conditions in that playoff matchup.

Baker’s record is 12-1-1 overall.

 


Football

Baker will be gunning for the Greater Oregon League title Friday evening when the Bulldogs host Mac-Hi in the regular-season finale.

The Bulldogs, 2-0 in the GOL and 6-2 overall, can clinch the league title and a first-round state bye with a win.

Baker coach Dave Johnson said the Bulldogs will not overlook Mac-Hi.

“It’s for the league championship,” he said. “Mac-Hi plays pretty solid up front. They try to jam the ball down your throat then throw outside. They’re one of those groups you don’t want to let hang around.”

Kickoff is at 7 p.m. Tickets are $4 adults and $3 students.


Other football

Powder Valley will close out the Old Oregon League season at Pine-Eagle Friday. Both teams are winless in league play.

“I think we’ll match up pretty well with them,” said Pine-Eagle Blake Dennis. “It would nice to get the league win, and finish ahead of Powder.”

Kickoff is set for 2 p.m.
