Coaching changes don’t necessarily bring about different results. There are many factors that have contributed to Tonasket’s team sport struggles in the CTL, not the least of which is being the smallest school in the league.
EPHRATA – Tonasket and Oroville both traveled to Ephrata on Saturday, March 24, for Ephrata’s Ray Cross Invitational, featuring more than 38 schools of all sizes, including a couple from Oregon and Alaska.
Oroville’s first week of high school sports competition was wiped out by bad weather last week.
Tonasket senior John Stedtfeld was selected to play in the 15th annual Wenatchee Central Lions All-star Boys Basketball game on Saturday, March 17.
YAKIMA – Five Tonasket tracksters braved cold conditions on Saturday, March 17, as they traveled to the Papa Wells Invitational at East Valley (Yakima) for a season-opening meet against 29 other schools, including several 3A and 4A teams.
PATEROS – Youth wrestling action last weekend took place at Pateros, where 150-200 pre-school through sixth-graders from Cashmere, Wenatchee, Chelan, Brewster, Omak, Okanogan, Liberty Bell, Tonasket, Pateros and Oroville competed.
TONASKET – Glenn Braman says he’s looking forward to a new stage after resigning as Tonasket’s varsity basketball coach last week.
The fifth-year coach, whose team snapped a 49-game Caribou Trail League losing streak in what turned out to be his next-to-last game as the Tigers’ coach, wasn’t interested in a public rehashing of all the reasons he decided to step down. Instead, he’s focusing on his next steps.
For the Tonasket boys soccer team, a new sense of resolve that was immediately evident in Saturday’s 3-3 draw with visiting Manson. The Tigers bounced back from a 3-1 deficit with two goals in the final seven minutes to tie the Trojans, who last year dominated Tonasket 5-0.
EAST WENATCHEE – The Oroville girls basketball team’s district tournament run came to a swift and decisive halt on Wednesday, Feb. 15, as an angry Lake Roosevelt team dispatched the Hornets 54-15 in a loser-out contest at Eastmont High School.
Lake Roosevelt hadn’t expected to be in this game; the Raiders had been upset on Monday by Mandy Southard’s Entiat team, which Oroville coach Mike Bourn had expected to play.
