WRESTLING

Tiger wrestlers look to build on last year TONASKET - Tonasket’s wrestling team was very young last season - painfully so, at times. But with so many wrestlers returning after being thrown into the fire as underclassmen, the Tigers are looking to make a push toward top of the Caribou Trail League after a third place finish last year. Of the four who qualified for state last season, only fourthplace medalist Jared Stedtfeld graduated. Returning are sophomore Cristian Diaz (projected to settle in at 113 pounds this year), junior Collin Aitcheson (120), and senior Jeffrey Stedtfeld (126). Senior Austin Booker (170), who made state two years ago but who missed the second half of last season with an injury, also returns. “We have a good mix of seniors through freshman,” says Tigers coach Dave Mitchell of his 28-man roster. “We’re excited and if we can get all of our guys in their proper weight classes we think we’ll be fighting for the league title. “We expect (the state veterans) to return and did better than the last time they were there.” Tonasket also had several wrestlers fall just short of state qualification with strong regional showings, including senior Dalton Wahl (138), Tim Frazier (120) and John Rawley (195). “They were close to making it to state,” Mitchell says. “We also have several other guys who we expect to make an impact this year.” The Tigers

expect to make a serious run at the league title, if they can stay healthy, despite the addition of Quincy to the Caribou Trail League, which makes the road that much tougher. Defending league champ Chelan opened the season as third-ranked team in the state, runner-up Omak is also highly-regarded despite the loss of several top-flight seniors including state champion Dylan Green. “I expect Quincy to be tough,” Mitchell says. “Chelan and Omak are tough as well, but so are we.” The region will shape up a little differently: Colville no longer has to be dealt with as the

Hornet wrestlers have state aspirations Seniors

BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

OROVILLE - Oroville’s two state-qualifying wrestlers from last season have graduated, but coach Chuck Ricevuto has high hopes for his squad, which six returns six veterans and faces a reconfigured region. Returning starters in their respective weight classes include seniors Enrique Martinez (126 pounds), Michael Ripley (132), Angel Camacho (138), Corey Childers (145)and Eric Herrera (220) as well as junior Eddie Ocampo. Sophomore Leo Curiel also saw action last year. Ripley, Herrera, Ocampo and Curiel all advanced to regionals last year while Martinez had success for the Hornets as an underclassman. “If these starters make wrestling a high priority in their lives, any one of them could make it to state,” Ricevuto says. “They need to bring our underclassmen along with everyone improving by one percent per week. “There is a real lack of upper weight class wrestlers in our district. That said, some hard work by our upper weight class kids could really pay off at the district

tournament.” The road to state became a little less treacherous thanks to reclassification. Warden and Kettle Falls were bumped up to Class 1A, while Brewster chose to move up of its own volition. “Our road is a little easier,” Ricevuto says. “But Lake Roosevelt, Liberty Bell, Kittitas, Pomeroy, Reardan and Selkirk return some really tough state veterans.” And as Ricevuto has noted on many occasions in past years, getting out of the eastern regional is near-guarantee of a state medal. “It’s all about sticking to individual goals and making it to state,” he says. “Quite often the west side opponents are not as tough as our own region.” Ricevuto adds that getting his team to embrace that goal is half the battle. “Any coach who can get his team to match his dreams will have success,” he says. “Therein lies the challenge.”

GIRLS BASKETBALL

Experienced Oroville girls eye state berth BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

OROVILLE - Two straight seasons, the Oroville girls basketball team has fallen one victory short of the state tournament. Hornets coach Mike Bourn feels that this year's team has the potential to be the one to break that drought as he returns an experienced squad that he says is deeper than his first two Oroville teams. Four starters are back, including three in their third year on varsity. Seniors Briana Moralez, Callie Barker and Katie Tietje have played on both of those almost-to-state squads, while sophomore Lily Hilderbrand started throughout her freshman season. Seniors Becky Arrigoni and Ali Miller also saw action last year. One other would-be returning starter, Sierra Speiker, opted not to turn out for hoops this year. "We're pretty fast," Bourn says. "we have decent size overall even though we don't have anyone six-foot. And we have more depth than we have. “ When we get Brittany Jewett back (from a foot injury, a few games into the season) we'll have enough to run full varsity scrimmages in practice, which we haven't had the past couple years." Bourn says that a greater seriousness

in practice should pay off as the year progresses. "The girls have been in the program now and know what to expect," he says. "The seniors know from being up here (at the varsity level), and the younger girls know from having been in the program coming up." He said that the success the team had in a summer tournament, particularly against a select squad from Calgary, seems to have changed the attitude of the team. "This is the first time I'm seeing them going out there really expecting to win," Bourn says.

Tietje early on Bourn feels that juniors Jewett and Meagan Moralez were showing what he needed to see there. Assisting Bourn this year will be his daughter Kelsey, who played on his 2005 Liberty Bell squad that made the 1A semifinals before losing to Freeman. "It's good to have her here," Bourn says. "She knows the offense, defense and footwork that I teach. And she knows what it takes to get to state." And if Bourn has his way, so will the rest of the Hornets once this season is done.

Tigers hope finishing strong leads to more wins Seniors

BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

TONASKET - Tonasket girls basketball coach Mike Larson often called his first-year team a work in progress. Now in his second year, Larson hopes to see how much progress has been made. With a mix of old and new faces, the Tigers have been working to find ways to score more points. Getting on the scoreboard was their biggest struggle a year ago. "Last year we were getting the shots we wanted," Larson says. "But we weren't able to finish. Our main focus this year is that we think we can get the same shots, but we want to work on our shooting percentage. Last year we lost several games because of that -- teams weren't physically better than us, or beating us in every phase of the game. It often just came down to that one column on the stat sheet." Senior post Devan Utt and point guard Kelly Cruz return to lead the way, along with juniors Kathryn Cleman, Kylie Dellinger, Baylie Tyus and Elizabeth Jackson, who all were in the reg-

"Playing these local teams, there was stuff that we could see that we can work on. Now, if this season improves and picks up, I'll find the time to get us to team camps or tournaments over the summer; we're not quite there yet."

we've learned," he says. "We like to bring pressure and see if we can get other teams forced into mistakes. I think it's important to take the fight to the other team as opposed to sitting back and letting them bring the fight to you." Competing in the Caribou Trail League will be as tough as ever. Okanogan won the state 1A title last year and returns most of its lineup, while Brewster, which just moved up to 1A, came within a few points of winning the 2B championship last year and likewise returns much of its lineup.

Tigers learning anew as Pedregon makes his mark BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

TONASKET - Competing in the Caribou Trail League can be a tall order, and has been for the Tonasket boys basketball teams for quite a few years. “Tall,” however, is one thing the Tigers are not, though that didn’t seem to bother first-year coach Agustin Pedregon as Tonasket started its season this week. “It’s not looking bad at all,” Pedregon says. “The kids are picking up the offense, and defensively we’re working hard and getting better every day.” Pedregon says that despite an overall lack of varsity experience on the squad, they have picked up a lot more this early in the season than he anticipated. “We’re about two weeks in advance of where I thought we’d be,” he said several days before the Tigers’ first game. “I’m really surprised how quickly they’ve picked things up. “The ability to adapt quickly is really their strength. We want to be able to change from man to zone and back, and change to different schemes. It’s a really smart group and that’s help speed things up.” The Tigers bring back four players that saw varsity experience last year, all juniors: guards

Michael Orozco and Dyllan Gage, and forwards Roberto Juarez and Trevor Terris. The team has only two seniors - Ian Young and Brayson Hires - but neither played varsity hoops last year. “I think it’ll be a learning year for the varsity guys,” Pedregon says. “We’re young. We have a couple of sophomores on varsity and the seniors haven’t played a lot. Their big push could be next year; being young helps with the long run.” And, yes, the Tigers do lack size, but Pedregon points out that needn’t be fatal. “I told the guys that in basketball you can’t

We’ve got guards and I think we’ll be fine with our big guy. (Sophomore Colton) Leep I think will be the big secret in the CTL. He’ll help us defensively against the Okanogans.” The CTL annually is one of, if not the, toughest 1A leagues in the state. It only got tougher this year with the addition of Quincy

- where Pedregon was an assistant that past few years - and Brewster, which moved up from 2B to 1A specifically because of the traditional strength of its basketball program. Though Quincy hasn’t been in the CTL, Pedregon was on the Jacks’’ bench for non-league games against the south end teams and knows what he’s getting into. “Cashmere will be tough - they move the ball so well,” he says.

“We played Cascade, and they have a new coach who’s a real defensive, in-your-face kind of guy. Quincy, I was in their program, which helps, but they’ll be tough too. “But mainly right now we just want to get on the same page from the C squad up to varsity. We want to get the guys accustomed to our expectations defensively and get them familiar with the offense.”

Hornet basketball expects tremendous growth OROVILLE BOYS BASKETBALL ROSTER

BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

OROVILLE - It'll be a new and unfamiliar Oroville boys basketball team local hoops fans will see this season. For the most part, anyway. Connor Hughes is the lone returnee from last year's squad that advanced to the 16-team regional round, only to get knocked out by eventual state champion Colfax. Hughes is one of just two seniors -- the other is Gil Ildelfonso, who didn't play last year but saw some varsity action two seasons ago -- while several others saw the occasional emergency or mopup duty while playing mostly on the JV. Hughes was one of the area's top scorers and will be heavily relied upon to lead the otherwise inexperienced squad. "We are a pretty young team with little varsity experience," says Oroville coach Allen Allie. "So I see nothing but growth for us this year. We lost a couple of players since last year that we thought would be back (Luke Kindred didn't turn out for hoops, and
