UNION — Pine-Eagle’s school record-setting performance earned the Spartans third place at the District 4 wrestling tournament Saturday at Union High School.
GRESHAM — The contingent of Baker swimmers at the Class 4A/3A/2A/1A state swim meet didn’t get past the preliminary rounds Friday.
Baker has picked the most inopportune time to go on a four-game losing streak.
Baker tuned up for this week’s Greater Oregon League boys basketball district playoffs with a 76-35 victory at Mac-Hi Friday.
Powder Valley and Wallowa advanced to the District 7-1A boys basketball
championship game after claiming semifinal wins Friday at Baker High
Powder Valley, seeded No. 2, defeated Cove 69-59 to advance. Wallowa, the top seed, stopped Imbler 68-56.
Powder Valley takes lead early
Powder Valley used a 10-0 run late in the first quarter to break a 12-12 tie and never trailed after that.
The 10-0 run, five each by Trenton Dixon and Levi Allen, lifted the Badgers to a 22-12 lead. Powder led 22-14 at the break.
Both teams then tallied 17 points in the second period leaving Powder Valley ahead 39-31 at halftime.
In the third quarter, the teams again scored the same number of
points — 10 — to leave the Badgers ahead 49-41 entering the fourth
Cove managed to cut the deficit to five points, 56-51, midway
through the final eight minutes. But the Leopards, who took Powder to
overtime twice during the regular season, could get no closer.
Top-seeded and top-ranked Imbler and Joseph advanced to the
championship game of the District 7-1A girls basketball tournament
Friday at Baker High School.
Imbler had an easy time with Wallowa 59-26, and Joseph upset Pine-Eagle 48-40.
Joseph stuns Spartans
Joseph’s Anna Bird let Pine-Eagle know what to expect early, hitting a trio of three-point baskets in the first quarter.
Bird’s long-range bombs helped the Eagles take a 14-5 lead at the break.
Joseph’s Mariah Warnock then added six second-quarter points to help the Eagles maintain a 25-17 halftime lead.
Joseph increased its lead to as many as 11 points in the third
period before Pie-Eagle closed the gap to 35-29 entering the fourth
Imbler and Cove advanced to the District 7-1A boys basketball semifinals with first-round wins Thursday at Baker High School.
Wallowa and Joseph earned first-round wins at the District 7-1A girls basketball tournament Thursday at Baker High School.
Bulldogs clinch second place with 86-46 win
Baker secured second place in the Greater Oregon League boys basketball race Tuesday by burying Ontario 86-46 at BHS.
The win, the third by the Bulldogs over Ontario this season, means
Baker will host a district second-round game Feb. 25. Ontario will host
Mac-Hi Feb. 23 to earn the right to travel to Baker. The winner of the
Feb. 25 game then travels to La Grande Feb. 27 to play the Tigers for
Class 4A state seeding.
Baker did little wrong Tuesday against Ontario.
“Everything was clicking, attacking,” said Baker coach Craig Woods.
“Even at halftime we talked about playing a complete four quarters.”
Derek Blankenship and Taylor McEnroe each scored four points, and
B.J. Quintana and Trace Richardson three each as the Bulldogs took a
20-10 lead after one period.
Baker needs win at Mac-Hi to take second
Baker’s last chance to finish second in the Greater Oregon League
girls basketball standings will hinge on the outcome of the final two
regular-season games Friday.
Ontario clinched the GOL regular-season title Tuesday by defeating
the Bulldogs 49-41 at BHS. The loss dropped Baker’s league record to
4-4. However, Mac-Hi defeated La Grande 46-43, giving La Grande a 4-4
record as well.
Baker must defeat Mac-Hi Friday at Milton-Freewater and hope Ontario beats La Grande. That would give Baker second place.
If that happens, Baker would host a second round district game Feb.
25 against either La Grande or Mac-Hi. If Baker loses Friday, or La
Grande upsets Ontario, Baker would host Mac-Hi in a first-round
district game Feb. 23.
“We have to refocus and get back on track against Mac-Hi,” said Baker coach Tim Smith.
Baker has defeated the Pioneers in two previous meetings this season.
