The Baker swim team closed out its regular-season schedule at home Saturday against La Grande, Pendleton and Hermiston at Sam-O Swim Center.

The Bulldogs earned five first-place awards during the afternoon.

Charlotte Bowers earned four firsts. Bowers won the girls 100 freestyle (59.24) and 200 freestyle (2:08.64) and was a member of the Bulldogs’ winning 200 medley relay (2:09.95) and and 200 freestyle relay (1:53.52).

The other members of both relays were Annie Martin, Kim Pointer and Kim Countryman.

Wins were few and far between for the Baker wrestlers Thursday in a Greater Oregon League dual against sixth-ranked La Grande on the Baker mats.

The Bulldogs managed just three wins by decision, and one by double forfeit, on the way to dropping a 61-15 decision.

“We didn’t come to wrestle tonight,” was all Baker coach Dee Gorrell had to say after the match.

“I guess Tuesday we’d better be looking to improve.”

Baker hosts Ontario and Grant Union Tuesday evening.

Andrew Porter (130 pounds), Andrew Gettle (145) and Ted Shaw (189) earned Baker’s only wins against the Tigers.

That’s the way Baker girls basketball coach Tim Smith said his Bulldogs played Tuesday in a 45-30 Greater Oregon League victory over Ontario at BHS. The win improves Baker’s league record to 4-0.

“It was a gutsy performance,” Smith said. “We didn’t play that well. We saw some of the effects of the sickness we’ve been battling.

“We came out flat. But we can chalk it up to the fact that we aren’t 100 percent healthy.”

Baker led just 26-20 with 45.8 seconds left in the third period. That’s when Haley Adams and Morgan Ward hit back-to-back three-point baskets to send the Bulldogs into the final eight minutes leading 32-21.

In pattern eerily similar to  a game earlier this year in Ontario, Baker managed to hold off the Tigers for a 65-56 Greater Oregon League boys basketball win Tuesday at BHS.

Earlier, at Ontario, Baker led the entire game only to have Ontario make a late run before the Bulldogs clinched the win.

Tuesday, Baker led from the middle of the first quarter, but Ontario battled back to within 59-54 with 2:38 left in the game.

Baker kept its cool, and made 6-of-7 free throws down the stretch to improve to 4-0 in the GOL race.

Baker battled sickness, injuries and Mac-Hi Saturday before finishing the evening with a 57-24 win. The win keeps the Bulldogs perfect at 3-0 in the Greater Oregon League girls basketball race.

“It was a good, solid win,” said Baker coach Tim Smith.

“These are the kind of games that worry you as a coach,” he said. “You know you are the better team, but you have to come out ready to go.”

Baker was without Maggie Harlow, who was on crutches nursing an injured ankle, and Morgan Ward, who was ill. Savannah Daly played despite being ill before the game. And, Mackenzie Warner became ill at halftime, and played sparingly in the second half.

Baker left little doubt early about the outcome of its Greater Oregon League boys basketball game with Mac-Hi Saturday at BHS.

The Bulldogs rode 23 first-points from Derek Blankenship to a 46-24 halftime lead, and rolled to a 74-43 victory. Baker ran its GOL record to 3-0 with the win.

Blankenship, who finished the game with 25 points after seeing limited action in the second half, hit five three-point baskets in the opening 16 minutes.

“When Derek is on like that he’s fun to watch,” said Baker coach Craig Woods. “And he opens up our posts when the opponents have to go out to defend him.”

Bulldogs swim to two seconds

HOOD RIVER — Baker swimmers garnered two second-place awards Jan. 17 at the The Dalles Eagle Indian Swim Invitational at Hood River.

Charlotte Bowers placed second in the girls 50 freestyle with a time of 27.43. The girls 200 freestyle relay team of Bowers, Annie Martin, Kim Countryman and Kim Pointer placed second with a 1:54.95 clocking.

Baker coach Bruce Bowers did not receive the official results until late last week. The Bulldogs returned to Hood River Saturday for the Hood River Invitational. Results will be published when available.

Andrew Porter claimed the championship at 145 pounds. Ted Shaw took second at 189 pounds.

“Andrew, Ted and Paul Johnson all had a good tournament,” said Baker coach Dee Gorrell.
