Girls thump two, squeak by one

Molly Thies goes for the layup against Cascade Jan. 13. Cashmere won all three games last week and now face three more rivals, including two league foes.
Cashmere's girls basketball team capped two consecutive thrashings of Cascade and Chelan with a tight victory against Mabton.

The Bulldogs beat Cascade 70-43 at home, Chelan 53-37 on the road, before returning home to face the Vikings, a scrappy 2B squad out of Yakima County that leads the South Division of the Central Washington B League with a 13-2 record, 6-0 in league.

Cashmere won 54-49 but trailed several times in the second half. Cashmere led by as many as eight points in the second half but could not shake off the pesky Vikings.

Walking like a Guy, living like a Doll
If on any of the shows of the musical "Guys and Dolls" you see a couple of the actors walking funny, there's a reason. They haven't had much practice at it.

None of them are babies or infants, and all of them could be classified as bipeds. It's just that they are supposed to be guys in the musical, and it's hard to walk like a guy.

Especially when the weeks of practice they have walking like guys pale in comparison to the decade and a half of practice they have walking like girls.

Freshmen Nikki Wisemore -a bobbysoxer and a gambler in the musical-- and Samantha Lippert -a scam artist and a gambler- have no speaking lines, but their roles require them to -among other things- hide their beautiful long manes under hats.

Freshmen shine in double-dual
Cashmere's young wrestlers showed plenty of promise in a double-dual against Omak and Cascade in Chelan Jan. 15.

"The highlight of the night was the performance of the freshmen," Cashmere coach Patrick Valeri said. Cashmere lost both duals on points due to forfeits in the upper weight classes, but those who wrestled did well.

Boys endure tough week after win over Cascade
A week that started with Cashmere limiting Cascade to eight second-half points en route to the Bulldogs' third consecutive win ended with two losses and players reaching for a stethoscope.

"We just didn't have the heart that we should have," Cashmere's Jake Monroe said after a stinging loss to the visiting Mabton Vikings Saturday.

After beating the Kodiaks 53-31 Jan. 13, Cashmere lost 57-48 at Chelan Jan. 16 and then lost 62-59 to Mabton Jan. 17.

Cashmere wrestlers get good experience in Sultan
Cashmere wrestlers overcame an uneven performance at the Sky Valley Invitational in Sultan to place near the top in four different weight classes.

The tournament helped Cashmere wrestlers break from seeing the same opponents almost every week, and the new faces challenged them, head coach Patrick Valeri said.

Two wrestlers finished third and two finished fifth at the invitational tournament. Cashmere took seven wrestlers to Sultan.

Cashmere loses for the first time this season
In a tough contest that saw leading scorer Breanne Knishka foul out with four 5minutes left, Cashmere suffered its first loss of the 2014-15 season, yielding to the Granger Spartans, 62-61.

"They play a good brand of basketball where they spread you out and they try to dribble-penetrate and kick," head coach Brent Darnell said of the Spartans. "We knew what was coming, we scouted 'em. We just didn't do a good job defending it."
