Baker boys stay on top thanks to La Grande loss Saturday

Baker is still the kingpin of the Greater Oregon League boys basketball standings.

The Bulldogs can thank Riverside for a little bit of help.

Baker entered the weekend 4-0 in the GOL, but lost 67-53 at La Grande Friday. The win lifted La Grande (4-0 after the win) a half-game ahead of the Bulldogs in the standings.

Baker then defeated Burns 64-45 at home Saturday to improve its GOL mark to 5-1. La Grande wasn't as fortunate at Riverside. The host Pirates handed La Grande a 45-41 loss to drop the Tigers to 4-1, a half-game behind Baker.

Powder Valley girls win two

Powder Valley remained hot on the heels of Pine-Eagle during the weekend, sweeping two Old Oregon League girls basketball foes.

The Badgers (9-1 in the OOL) defeated Adrian 46-37 Friday at Adrian, then topped Joseph 52-37 Saturday at Joseph. Powder's only league loss has been to Pine-Eagle.

Pine-Eagle girls remain undefeated

Pine-Eagle improved its Old Oregon League girls basketball record to 10-0 during the weekend by sweeping Wallowa and Adrian.

Friday, the Spartans rolled past Wallowa 71-38 at Wallowa. Saturday, Pine-Eagle stopped Adrian 76-37.

Powder Valley boys win, Pine-Eagle boys lose

Powder Valley won and Pine-Eagle lost in Old Oregon boys basketball action Friday.

Pine-Eagle led Wallowa by 10 points at halftime, but couldn't hold on in the second half, losing 76-55.

Powder hosts first-ever wrestling match

Powder Valley wrestling officials are deeming Saturday's first-ever high school wrestling home match a "great day for our program."

Coach Brandon Young said the tournament drew a great turnout and all of the Powder wrestlers came ready to wrestle.

Freshman Witt Bender led the team with a second-place finish.

"He had a lot of support among the crowd when he competed in the championship," Young said.

The Badgers' coach said Josh Gorrell made a huge step as he went 2-2 on the day and took third place. Cory Nelson at 130 pounds "wrestled the best he has all season" as he also went 2-2 on the day to take fifth place.

"This was just what our team needed," Young said.

Baker girls win one, lose one

Baker kept its Greater Oregon league girls basketball record even at 3-3 during the weekend after splitting a pair of league games.
