Pirates in great position for district championships With only a few meets left in the season, the NeahKah-Nie track team is looking to have their best performances of the season in the next couple weeks leading up to the district championships.

“ [Our] athletes have continued to do what they need to [do], which is improve their times or distances at each weekly meet,” NKN Head Coach Cynthia Grelck said. “With four weeks left in the season, it is important

that athletes continue to improve each week so they are peaking at the district meet in the middle of May.” Several Pirate athletes have a great chance to qualify for post-season championships if they continue

to stay in the top three in the district, Grelck told the Headlight Herald. With that position, athletes could potentially earn the first or second seed to state. Currently ranked to finish well in the district is

Loet who is third in the 200-meters, Nathan Imholt is third in the discus, freshman Katie Clifford is tied for first in the long jump, Cody Stewart is second in the 110-meter high hurdles, Tasha Mabe-DeRoest is

third in the shot put, and the boys 4x100 team is in the top three. The Pirates will travel to Nestucca on May 1.

NKN golf focuses on long-term goals yards and in,” Sherren said. “For the rest of the season the focus will be on trying to improve at each event and instilling in the golfers that it takes time and effort to improve and they shouldn’t get discouraged by setbacks.” At the Tillamook Open at the start of this month, Colin Purcell and Max

Halverson represented the Pirates. Halverson shot 95 with Purcell coming in behind him at 111. On the girls side, Nakiya Dunn’s season highlight so far came when she clinched the win at the Tillamook Open, shooting 94 (42-52).

NKN softball seeks a win

Bright spots in the Pirates baseball season While the season may not be going the way it was expected, the Pirate baseball team still has bright spots that fuel them for future success, NKN Head Coach Greg Kelley said. The team remains winless with a little over two weeks to go in the season. “We have taken some tough losses lately, but we feel that it is all in the long process of learning how to compete,” Kelley said. “We need to keep learning to complete every play and always give our best effort no matter what.” As the season winds down the team will continue to work on fundamentals to solidify their

foundation for the future, Kelley told the Headlight Herald. The Pirates are 0-10 in

the Northwest League. NKN will host Portland Christian on May 2 at 3 p.m.

Speech and debate members to represent Tillamook County at state

If most people fear public speaking more than they fear death, you’d never know it by looking at the speech and debate teams at Tillamook County’s three high schools. If anything, the number of students involved is increasing.  District speech and debate competitions for all three of the schools were held April 5 at Nestucca High School in Cloverdale, bringing an end to this year’s season for all but a select few who now are moving on to the state tournament April 24-26 at Western Oregon University in Monmouth. “Not a lot of people realize how long this season is,» said Brett Hurliman of Tillamook,

Tillamook’s Sean Rumage performs his oratory at the Tillamook County Speech and Debate Awards Celebration on April 14. one of Tillamook’s coaches. “These kids start going to tournaments in early October and keep going until April. “For a lot of these kids,

they will take a couple weeks off, then start working over the summer on next year’s speeches so they will have some polish to their pieces by the time school starts up again. Added Hurliman, “Part of this is due to the fact that there is no separate ‘state champion’ for the smaller schools. When someone from Neah-Kah-Nie wins State, it means they went head to head with all those bigger schools, the Lake Oswegos, and still beat them. Talk about a David and Goliath situation!  “Just to get through districts means our students have to not only beat the other schools in our county – Tillamook, Neah-Kah-Nie and Nestucca –

but our kids also have to beat out Forest Grove, McMinnville and Canby,” said Hurliman. “When any of our students say they took first in District, it means they beat the top speakers from those schools.  “They have all earned their berth at State.”  For the most part, he said, the students compete in a handful of different categories: • The interpretation category involves students reading someone else’s work, be it humorous, dramatic or poetic.  • The radio and after-dinner categories require the competitors to write and perform their own pieces.  • Impromptu and extempo-

Medical Exploring at TRMC Medical Exploring for high school students launched at TRMC this spring and three Tillamook County teens signed up as charter members. The group meets on the first Wednesday of each month at 5 p.m. to learn about different career opportunities in the medical field. Healthcare providers from a variety of departments will host the Explorers and provide hands-on learning experiences. At their first meeting Explorers learned about ultrasound imaging technology. They heard from Dennis Grosulak, staff sonographer about his career, education and certifications, and the wages an entry level sonographer can expect to earn, as well as the demand for this position industry-wide.

The Explorers saw ultrasound images of their own organs and arteries, and they had a chance to practice wielding the ultrasound wand. In their second meeting Explorers interviewed Jeanne Lopiniski, ICU-RN, and learned what it takes to provide skilled nursing care to patients in the intensive care unit (ICU). They heard about Jeanne’s career, the other departments she has worked in and why ICU is her favorite. They learned the pay range for entry level RNs, and how it differs from one region of the country to another. Nurses on the west coast make more than their counterparts in the Midwest, for example. Explorer Jordan Brown got in an ICU bed and observed his vital signs on a monitor; then the Ex-

plorers learned to hang IV bags with Laura Fournier, RN. Exploring is a career education program for girls and boys 14 years and older. It is offered through the Tillamook Regional Medical Center in partnership with the Cascade Pacific Council. All high school students in Tillamook County (14 and older) are welcome to join. The membership fee is $20 for a year. Dinner will be provided at the monthly meetings. The Medical Exploring group will meet May 7 at 5 p.m. in the third floor conference room D. Dinner is provided. Are you or any teens you know curious about a career in healthcare? Please plan to join us. Contact Eric Swanson at 503-815-2275 for more information.

Nestucca baseball 5-8 overall

With a few rain delays lately, the Bobcats haven’t been able to hit the diamond as often as expected. The ‘Cats are coming off a series loss against Portland Christian, but Head Coach Jim Kiser believes that keeping up with the state ranked team really showed the team’s potential. “The younger guys are starting to get accustomed to the speed of the varsity game which is fun to see,” Kiser told the Headlight Herald. A record of 4-5 in the Northwest League ranks them fifth while being 5-8 overall. Nestucca will host Gaston on Saturday, May 3 starting at noon.

well in the discus, shot put, and javelin. Elder’s throw of 146’ in the discus at the Oregon Relays on April 19 tied his all-time best and broke Nestucca’s sophomore record. His throw also ranks him second in the state. Elder is also ranked third in the shot put and sixth in the javelin. Triple threat Austin McKillip has also earned top marks that rank him among the state’s best. McKillip currently stands second in the javelin, fourth in the pole vault, and seventh in the triple jump. Rounding out the last state ranked Bobcats is Guillermo Pimienta fifth in the high jump (5’10”) and sixth in the long jump (19’7”), Ryan Leslie sixth in the pole vault (10’6”), and Max Kirkendall eighth

in the long jump (19’1”). Raymond Jackson-Cruz sits just outside the top ten in the state for the 1,500, but his season best time of 4:40.74 ranks him third in the league, a potential spot for a state seed. On the girls side, Kycie Richwine is once again a state threat in the hurdle events. Her 17.02 in the 100-meter hurdles has her ranked second in the state. She is also ranked seventh in the 300-meter hurdles. Senior Trisha Hopkins has posted great marks in the field, earning an eighth place ranking in the shot put and seventh place in the discus. In the pole vault, Alyssa Morgan’s 7’ mark has her tied for seventh in the state. The Bobcats will host their only home meet on May 1 starting at 3:30 p.m.

Several Bobcats on the Nestucca track team are in a great position for the upcoming championship season. A handful of athletes find themselves ranked in the top ten of the state and many others are highly ranked in the Northwest League. Nestucca junior Drace Moeller is currently ranked first in the state for the shot put. Moeller threw 53’8.5” when the team competed at NKN’s first home track meet of the season. His throw not only put him at the top of the charts, but also broke Nestucca school’s record. In addition, Moeller is ranked fifth in the state in the javelin. Also having a great season in the field is sophomore Brett Elder. Elder has consistently performed

Mooks prepare for Cowapa League Championships focus on a sport, they excel in their lives.” “As a high school, we are developing into a higher-end team,” Beggs continued. “At state this year, we’re really going to want to represent Tillamook well by placing at state and setting school records.” For the distance events, Hector Rojo is the lead runner with a top five spot in both the 1,500 and 3,000-meters. Teammates Andrew Jenck and Eulises Cruz-Vieyra also made the Cowapa’s top ten list in the 1,500 and 3,000 meters, as well as Colin Atchison and Cayden O’Brien in the 3,000 meters. “We had a great workout on Monday, and in just two weeks everyone made huge improvements,” Distance Coach Patrick Zweifel said. “My system is really geared toward the last race of the season, as it is difficult to concentrate on running fast in the season without compromising the ultimate goal.”  On the girls side, hurdler Ken Poblador is in the top ten of the Cowapa League in both hurdle events. Also posting top ten times in the

sprints is Markita Martin in the 200-meters and Chloe Pampush in the 400-meters. In the field, Ashley Williams is the powerhouse in the jumps for the Cheesemakers. She is ranked second in the triple jump and tied for seventh in the long jump. For the throwing events, Havilah Patching leads the team in the javelin with a top ten list throw. Laura Whitlatch is ranked ninth in the discus and Tya Tharp is seventh in the shot put. Kestrel Bailey earned top marks in all three distance events, her best being third in the league in the 3,000-meters. Tillamook Sabrina Polman also made the list in the 3,000 meters and McKenzie Richards did so in the 800-meters. “The transition from the winter break has forced us to focus more thus far on their foundation and they’ll continue getting faster,” Zweifel said of the girls distance squad.  The Cheesemakers will host a JV meet on April 30 and the team will travel to the Toledo Twilight on Friday.

With only two weeks until the Cowapa League Championships, Cheesemaker track athletes are working to hopefully earn a top two seed to qualify for the state meet. Currently, Cheesemaker Wesley Stirk is the only athlete ranked in the top ten in the state. Stirk’s 16.08 in the 110-meter hurdles has him ranked ninth. However, Stirk also has top marks in the league: second in the 100-meter dash and sixth in the 200-meters. Senior Philippe Josi is also a leading athlete in multiple events. On the track, Josi is ranked fourth in the league for the 400-meters and seventh in the discus. In the field, multi-sports athlete David Waud has earned a fourth place ranking in the javelin and Coley Trost is third in the high jump and pole vault. Cole Berge’s best leap of the season at 20’6” in the long jump has him ranked third. “We have some really talented throwers this year,” Throws Coach Eric Beggs said. “It’s been going really great.

Tillamook golf has hopes for State appearance

The Tillamook boys golf team as of April 25, was 2-1 in the Cowapa League. Senior David Waud has had a great start to the season, winning or medaling in all but two of his seven matches this year. “All the varsity players are working on their golf stroke, course management, and recovering after a poor shot or hole which I believe is the most difficult skill for young golfers to master,” Head Coach Wil Duncan said. “Learning to strike the ball is simple, don’t get me wrong, it just takes a lot of work, and a lot of focused practice.” The boys team recently lost to Seaside in a home dual, but Duncan hopes the team can play well enough at the district tournament to earn a trip to the state tournament in May. “We have as good a shot as any other team in our league,” Duncan told the Headlight Herald. “It just depends how the varsity plays under pressure during the district match.”

With only three girls on the golf team, they are unable to score as a team in the league, but young players Sommer Dubuque and Abbie Bell are making great improvements, Duncan said. “They, along with Team Captain Junior Natalee Zuercher, will be a force to deal with next year.” Looking toward the off-season and next year, Duncan hopes to recruit several new golfers coming from the junior high. “My assistant Tim Cathcart and I plan to go to the junior high before summer and recruit for both boys and girls golf. The idea being that they attend the local kids golf camps held at Bay Breeze in June and Alderbrook in August.” And as always, practice will help with the future success of the team. “I am hopeful my young golfers this year will spend time this summer and fall working on their golf stroke.”

Mook tennis finds consistent improvement The Mooks tennis team is all about improvement and their practice is starting to pay off. “We are half way through our season and I see the girls finding ways to make corrections and thinking more offensive than I saw at the beginning of the season,” Head Coach Allison Meyers said. “It’s nice when we can talk strategy because it can be such an effective way to win points. I’ve been telling the girls to choose placement over power.”

The team’s highlight of the season so far was when they won their first overall match against Corbett on April 22. The team won all seven of their matches to come away with the win on their home court. Three Cheesemakers have made noteworthy improvements this season. “Jackie Verdin’s volleying has become a very solid shot for her, Mikaela Staple’s groundstrokes are a huge improvement from last year and even the beginning of our practices, [and] lastly Kyla

Marsh has fought hard to be a singles player and has really turned a corner on her game. She serves with confidence and her groundstrokes are much improved,” Meyers told the Headlight Herald.   “Coming to practices is a huge way to improve our game,” she continued. “The girls that our consistently at practice our improving the most.”   As for the rest of the season, Meyers hopes that the team can continue to build confidence in their game and have a powerful

Tillamook baseball plays catch-up The Tillamook baseball team has had more rescheduled games due to weather this season, than any other year Head Coach Josh Brown has experienced. With the potential to play five back-to-back games this week, Brown is thankful for the depth of his team. “The lucky thing is I have enough pitchers for the week. Five to six solid pitchers, that’s not typical.” The team is 2-2 in the

league with wins over Cowapa League competitor Seaside. “The times they’ve played really well they’ve come together and created a family atmosphere,” Brown said. The team has been putting in extra time for hitting practice to better themselves, Brown continued. They have really identified their areas of weakness and worked to fix them. A significant moment for the team came when the

coaching staff talked to the team about the importance of leadership after one of their games, Brown told the Headlight Herald. After the coaches had finished, their words must have struck a cord for the team remained gathered on the field talking about what they needed to work on. The team still has high hopes for the remainder of the season with their eyes set on a Cowapa League Championships.
