TONASKET – Results for the Tonasket Junior Rodeo, held Saturday and Sunday, April 21-22, at the Tonasket Rodeo Grounds, are as follows.
The four saddle-winners were Cayden Diefenbach of Omak for all-around Intermediate/Senior Cowgirl; Zachary Raley of Brush Prairie for Intermediate/Senior Cowboy; Tonasket’s Brooke Richey for all-around Pee-Wee/Junior Cowgirl; and Chantz Popelier of Omak for all-around Pee-Wee/Junior Cowboy.
The Oroville softball team scored a season-best 10 runs in its first game of a doubleheader Saturday at Waterville, but it wasn’t enough to get the Hornets in the win column as the Shockers claimed an 18-10 victory.
The 4-1 loss at Bridgeport didn’t disappoint Oroville boys soccer coach Mike Pitts in the least bit.
Having to play the game 9-on-11 was another matter.
With only nine players available for their Saturday, April 14, match against the Mustangs, Pitts hoped that Bridgeport would be willing to match the Hornets’ numbers, as other teams have this season.
No such luck.
Tonasket’s baseball team had its chances against Omak in the first game of their Saturday, April 17, doubleheader.
The Pioneers, though, snapped a 3-3 tie with a five-run fifth inning and went on to sweep the Tigers with a 10-0 victory in the second game of the afternoon.
Tonasket’s boys and girls each took second at the Tigers’ home invitational on Friday, April 13, while Oroville’s boys finished seventh and the girls took fourth.
Both teams were missing significant contributors due to the Future Business Leaders of America state competition in Seattle over the weekend.
An old adage states that familiarity breeds contempt. In the case of the Tonasket soccer team, having the same referees officiate just about every game is at least building a growing sense of frustration.
As the Tonasket fastpitch softball team gets ready to face teams for the second time around, Tigers coach Emily Rimestad is eager to see the payoff of her young team’s improvement.
