Mason Elliott pitching for Cashmere against Freeman. The senior pitched six innings of one-hit ball in Cashmere’s win over the Scotties.
Cashmere High School's baseball team won two more games to lift its record to 8-0 on the year, although a freak injury cast a pall over what was otherwise a triumphant week.

Cashmere beat the Freeman Scotties 7-1 April 7, then beat the Nooksack Valley Pioneers 8-2 April 11, both games at home.

During the game against Nooksack Valley, Cashmere first baseman Jake Monroe was hit by a pitch three straight times, all three times unintentional, all three times on the head. He laughed it off, Cashmere head coach Jeff Carlson wrote in an email, but by that evening he had a severe headache.

The next day, Monroe was diagnosed with a concussion.

Carlson he had never seen anyone get smacked in the head three times in a game. The first baseman is sidelined indefinitely.

Cashmere wins two, sits two
Fans in the stands, manicured field, Cashmere players in uniform getting ready, umpires in uniform getting antsy. Where's the other team?

Why, on the other side of the mountain pass, of course.

In a perplexing decision, the Blaine Borderites did not show up for a Saturday doubleheader against Cashmere's softball team, a day after playing Cascade in Dryden.

When reached by Cashmere's schools chief Glenn Johnson -who was one of the people in attendance-the athletic director of Blaine High said the team returned home because of weather concerns. More than 12 inches of snow had been forecast for the passes last weekend. As of Monday morning, Snoqualmie Pass was bare and dry, and Stevens Pass presented no restrictions.

Moreover, a block away from the canceled doubleheader, an 18-team track meet occurred on the same day, with several teams coming from the rainy side of the state.

Cashmere Athletic Director Scott Brown said he received no notice of the cancellation, and added that if Blaine wants to make up the games, they need to come to Cashmere.

Soccer splits road matches
Cashmere's boys' soccer team rebounded from a tough 4-1 road loss against Granger April 9 with a 2-0 road victory against La Salle two days later.

The split gives Cashmere a 3-3 record on the season. It's the best record after six games in the tenure of third-year head coach Juan Valle. One more win gives Cashmere as many wins as all of last year. Two more wins give the Bulldogs as many wins as in the last two years combined.

A measured Valle said he wasn't too sold on the La Salle win. The Saints "parked the bus" against the Bulldogs, defending the entire time.

"It took us a lot of hard work to break that defense down," Valle said. "We lacked patience."

Soccer team beats Bridgeport 1-0 on the road
Cashmere's boys' soccer team earned a hard-fought victory at Bridgeport, beating the Mustangs 1-0 with a late tally by Adrian Urrutia.

"The boys played so well," coach Juan Valle said in an interview in Spanish. "We are coming to the point where they are playing with confidence, playing the ball on the first touch, they move the ball faster, with more intention."

The Bulldogs had the most chances, but the game remained tied until the 71st minute, where Hector Orozco caught a ball from his defenders at midfield, slung it to the left for Urrutia, who went on a run into the box past two defenders, and unloaded a shot between keeper and post for the lone goal.

The win against a physical Bridgeport team was the second win in a row for Cashmere, which had defeated Kiona-Benton 7-2.
