OROVILLE – Oroville’s track and field teams are peaking at just the right time.
The Hornets, competing against schools their own size after spending much of the regular season going against larger schools at big invitationals, showed they were ready for the post-season Thursday, May 10, with the girls team winning the Central Washington League North Sub-district meet by more than 50 points. The boys were edged by Liberty Bell in a two-way race for the team title.
“The boys and girls really stepped up with 12 PRs,” said Oroville coach Harold Jensen. “We got 19 of our 23 athletes through to the district meet.”
NORTH CENTRAL WASHINGTON – Baseball, fastpitch softball and boys soccer playoffs are underway, and while neither Tonasket nor Oroville are involved, the Tigers’ soccer squad can at least take some satisfaction in knowing they made their mark against a couple of state tournament-bound squads.

The Tiger boys finished second to Cashmere in the team scoring, while the girls finished fourth.

Two earned top-eight finishes.
OKANOGAN – Tonasket’s baseball team had what looked like a chance to scrape out a Caribou Trail League victory in their final weekend doubleheader of the season.
Resurgent Okanogan would have none of it, though the Tigers gave them their best shot in the first game of their Saturday, May 5, twin bill.
TONASKET – Tonasket’s softball team didn’t get its long-awaited league win. But first-year coach Emily Rimestad said after Friday’s doubleheader sweep at the hands of playoff-bound Okanogan that she felt that the team was on the right course despite a rough final week.
OROVILLE – It is spring time again and the soccer field is busy with lots of kids playing.
On Sunday April 29, 2012 the British Soccer Camp offered one hour of free instruction,
Playing shorthanded for most of the season, the Oroville soccer team saw its campaign come to a close last week with a 16-3 loss to Bridgeport and a 19-0 defeat at Brewster.
