Spartans second at Crane

Pine-Eagle earned second-place honors Saturday at the Class 1A state wrestling tournament at Crane.

Baker boys split pair of weekend basketball games


Baker loaded up the bus and took its boys basketball show on the road last weekend, splitting a pair of games.

Playing without leading scorer Derek Blankenship, who was playing baseball in Arizona, the Bulldogs dropped a 49-46 Greater Oregon League contest at La Grande Friday. Baker then rebounded to top Fruitland, Idaho, 53-45 Saturday at Fruitland.

“We learned a lot about ourselves,” said Baker coach Craig Woods. “I was proud of the kids. They hustled and played hard.

“We would have liked to get the win at La Grande, but a couple of bounces just didn’t go our way. I was thinking afterwards that we’re disappointed but knowing how well the other kids stepped up with Derek gone was just great basketball. We just have to take the positives from it.”


Baker girls lose to La Grande


Baker’s roster looked more like a MASH unit than a girls basketball team Friday following a 41-33 Greater Oregon League loss at La Grande.

Mackenzie Warner was nursing a sprained wrist, Whitney Phillips a cut mouth and Mackenzie Srack a sprained ankle.

“The game was extremely physical and we didn’t handle that pressure up front very well,” said Baker coach Tim Smith.

“We turned the ball over too many times in the first half. We gave up too many opportunities.”

Smith said the Bulldogs finished with more than 30 turnovers in the game.

“We were playing catchup all the time, and we’re not a catchup type of team. We have to continue to convince ourselves that we can handle the basketball,” Smith said.

The Bulldogs suffered a major blow when Warner went down in the second quarter. The Baker senior got tangled up with a La Grande player and fell on her wrist.

Warner was taken to Grande Ronde Hospital for x-rays. Preliminary reports were that she had broken her wrist.


Powder Valley remains undefeated atop the Old Oregon League boys b


Powder Valley remains undefeated atop the Old Oregon League boys basketball standings after sweeping Imbler and Joseph last weekend.

Friday, the Badgers topped Imbler 70-56 at Imbler. Saturday, Powder easily handled Joseph 74-29 at North Powder.


Balance leads win at Imbler

Four Powder Valley players scored in double figures in the win at Imbler.

Peter Colton led the way with 15 points. Trenton Dixon added 14, Levi Allen 13 and Bryson Kandle 10.

“Peter Colton played a heck of a game,” said Powder coach Kyle Dixon. “Everybody got into the game.”


Grizzlies roll past Baker, 43-31

Cold second quarter costly for Baker girls

A cold-shooting offense, and an even colder second quarter spelled defeat for Baker Tuesday in a non-league girls basketball game against Fruitland, Idaho.

Baker outscored the Grizzlies in the other three quarters, but fell 16-2 in the second quarter on the way to a 43-31 defeat in the Baker gym.

“We came out in the second half and played better,” said Baker coach Tim Smith. “But we had a bunch of turnovers in the first half and didn’t take care of the basketball.

“We just need to take care of the ball better,” Smith said. “We’re not where we need to be at this time of the season. And, offensively, we need to find a way to score more.”


Haines man wins A. Lakes snowshoe race

The 12th running of the Elkhorn Classic happened Sunday morning at Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort, with a classic cross country ski race and a snowshoe race.

“With all the talk about the snowshoe race that was going on among the snowshoeing crowd that came to the Nordic Center, in the week leading up to the race I expected to see more than two sign up,”  said Brian Vegter, ALMR marketing director. “Either way they had a great time and it was a really close race.”

Josh Cobb, 28, of Haines, won in a time of 40:44.46 followed closely by Mike McInnis, 60, of La Grande in a time of 41:00.45. The snowshoe course was a 7km out and back following the Black Lake Trail.
