Okanogan overcomes pesky Cashmere in opener

Mason Elliott under siege against Okanogan. Deficient tackling and blocking kept the Bulldogs from the south from bringing home a win. Cashmere lost 24-16.
In an entertaining contest that could have gone either way, Cashmere began its 2014 campaign with a 24-16 nonleague loss at Okanogan.

League opponents last year, the Bulldogs from the north and south are now in different conferences. That didn't keep the squads from putting on a show that had as its marquee performance the 344 rushing yards by Okanogan running back Tyler Morris.

Porous blocking and tackling helped Morris have his scrapbook-worthy night, Cashmere head coach Phil Zukowski said. Still, Cashmere battled all the way to the end.

"To have blocked and tackled as poorly as we did, and still have a chance to win the game, it shows that we can be a very good team," Zukowski said. "But we need to decide that blocking and tackling is really football. Everything is based on blocking and tackling and we only lost by eight points."

Loss to Eastlake a painful, helpful lesson to soccer team
Eastlake, the 4A school with a roster full of club players, exited the Wenatchee Valley taking two wins home and leaving many lessons behind.

The Wolves from the west side defeated the Wenatchee High School girls' team 3-1 a day after beating Cashmere 7-0 Sept. 5.

For Dennis Tronson, head coach of the Cashmere squad, the game exposed his team to a different level of play and fitness.

Eastlake was the better team, Tronson said, but Cashmere did have its chances.

Soccer team has second-largest turnout in almost 20 years
This team looks destined for stardom, if only because two of its players are named Grace Kelly and Jennifer Lopez.

Jokes aside, the Cashmere soccer program is in good health, with 36 players turning out. That's the second-most players in the 18 years of Dennis Tronson's tenure as head coach.

Only two of the players are seniors, Rylie Christensen and Tessa McCormick. Eight players return from last year's squad that reached the state quarterfinals.

Last year's team had 12 seniors, so many of the younger players are ready to take over the spots the grads left open, Tronson said.

Runners prepping for strange days ahead
In a year of absurdity, the schedule for the Cashmere High School cross country team astounds for how normal its immediate future looks.

Meets in places like Wenatchee, Leavenworth, Ellensburg and Shoreline give the list a business-as-usual feel much different from that of other fall sports.

Things get funky quickly for the Bulldogs once the regular season ends. The Caribou Trail League Championship meet will determine who goes to state. No districts, no regionals, nothing. Win and you're in.

"It's not all the way solidified," said Jeff Kenoyer, the team's first-year head coach. "But what it looks like now is we will have a race with four schools. The team that wins goes to state and then the rest of it, if there are any kids in the top five that aren't in that team, they also get to go."

Uphill climb awaits Bulldog netters
It's a movie audition.

The role calls for a funny man, and seated next to you are another unknown, then Jim Carrey and Billy Crystal.

That's the kind of odds awaiting the varsity volleyball team for Cashmere High School this year. In a four-team Caribou Trail League, only one team will make it to state, and both the 2013 state champion and runner-up are in the CTL.

But first-year coach Juan Sanchez says his team can surprise a few folks, by remaining competitive against such strong opponents.
