Ontario ends Baker girls’ win streak at 12

Baker entered Tuesday’s Greater Oregon League girls basketball game at Ontario needing one win to clinch the league championship.

The Bulldogs were riding a 12-game winning streak, were undefeated in league play, and had beaten Ontario twice earlier this season.

The Bulldogs finished the 14-team tournament with 171 points, edging Grant Union by 5.5 points.

“Everybody wrestled well. It was a good, successful weekend for us,” said Baker coach Dee Gorrell.

“The young kids stepped up again. It was a nice way to end the regular season. Now it’s time to gear up for district. The kids are peaking at the right time.”

Baker gym gets new flag

Trio of local businesses donate flag

A patriotic addition to the Baker High School gymnasium was unveiled Friday before the Baker boys and girls basketball games with Mac-Hi.

A new, and very large, American flag was unveiled from the rafters above center court in the gym. The 12-by-18-foot flag was purchased from Morgan Flags at a price of $5,000.
The flag, and all installation costs, were donated to BHS by Northwest Trenching Inc., Baker Vision Clinic and Thatcher’s Ace Hardware.

That’s the number of Baker wins or Ontario losses it will take for Baker to claim the Greater Oregon League girls championship. And, ironically, it could happen Feb. 17 at Ontario when Baker visits the Tigers.

“Our magic number is one,” said Baker coach Tim Smith. “But this team’s goal is to go undefeated in league and prep for the playoffs.”

The Bulldogs improved their GOL record to 5-1 Friday with a 68-40 victory over Mac-Hi. The win keeps the Bulldogs tied for first place in the GOL with La Grande with three games remaining.

Saturday, Baker handed a visiting Emmett, Idaho, club a 70-53 defeat.

Shaw selected for Shrine game

Ted Shaw, a first-team all-Greater Oregon League defensive lineman from Baker, was recently selected on the East roster for the annual East-West Shrine All-Star Football Game in Baker City.

Shaw helped the Bulldogs win the GOL championship and advance to the first round of the Class 4A state playoffs in November.

Other area selections on the East roster are Jake Turner of Ontario, Zane Murray and Cash Wenick of Grant Union, Russ Seals of Vale, Sam Fiorito of Union, Nick West of Imbler and former Bulldog Grant Marcum of Joseph.

East alternates include Andy Godfrey of La Grande, Michael Martin of Burns, Tyler Martin and Dustin Lippert of Grant Union, Clint Predmore of Elgin, Jeremy Moore of Union, Justin Brainerd of Cove, Sam Garnett of Joseph and Andrew Wilson of Wallowa.

Shrine game officials note that being selected is not a guaranteed participation in the game. Selected players must first return their parental permission slip and “keep their nose clean” in the intervening months.

The 2009 game will be played Aug. 1 at Bulldog Memorial Stadium.


Baker wrestles strong against GU, Ontario

What a difference a couple of days make.

Baker City Herald
Last Thursday Baker didn’t wrestle very well in a one-sided Greater Oregon League loss to La Grande. But Tuesday, the Bulldogs turned up the juice in gaining a split with Grant Union and Ontario on the Baker mats.

Baker dominated the Class 3A Prospectors from John Day 66-33, winning five matches by pin. The Bulldogs then forged a 27-6 lead in their GOL matchup with Ontario. Then Ontario rallied by scoring the final 39 points, including a pair of Baker forfeits, to earn the come-from-behind win.

“Now that was wrestling,” said Baker coach Dee Gorrell.
