Tonasket baseball seeks to build on last year Senior

Cork sees “commitment to new kind of excellence” BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

TONASKET - The road to excellence in the Caribou Trail League can be a difficult one, but Tonasket baseball coach Tim Cork believes his team is heading in the right direction. The Tigers didn’t win a league game on the field last year - they did pick up a forfeit win over Okanogan early in the season - but were competitive against all but Cashmere, which went unbeaten on the way to a state championship. There’s not a lot of experience on the roster despite eight returning players as just three of those were full-time starters a year ago. But with only one senior (Ian Young) on the roster, there is time to mold the squad into what Cork envisions. John Rawley is the team’s top returning pitcher, while Jake Cory and Kjeld Williams started regularly. Transfer student Jimmy Coleman also brings playing experience to the table. “Our goal is to work hard and get better every day,” Cork says. “We expect to be competitive in the CTL this season.” Cork, in his second year, says he is seeing progress. “Things are better in every aspect of our program,” he says. “Last year was a stepping stone for us and we are excited to see

our guys are working,” he says. “There is a commitment to a new kind of excellence within the team. They want success and it’s fun to see that in a young man’s eyes.”

Hornet baseball reboots with very young squad BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

OROVILLE - To say last year was a rough one for the Oroville baseball team might be an understatement. The Hornets had hoped to improve on a winless 2011 season last year. Instead, they not only failed to win a game, but by the end of the season had two few eligible players to field a team and had to forfeit their final six contests. It probably won’t help much this season, but the Oroville School Board’s decision to allow eighth graders to participate in non-contact high school sports where a middle school program hasn’t been offered should help the Hornet baseball program regain some traction. Only five of the 16 players on

“The impact of having six eighth graders will be felt in the years to come... The last year we had players who played at the age 13-15 level on the big diamond, we went to the state playoffs.” Tam Hutchinson, Oroville Baseball Coach

Oroville’s pre-season roster have high school playing experience, and only two of those have played for more than one year. But with an infusion of six eighth graders getting a chance to cut their teeth now, coach Tam Hutchinson sees a chance to get the foundation rebuilt.

As a result (of that, there are) fewer players with experience on the ‘big’ diamond. “The last year we had players who played at the age 13-15 level on the big diamond, we went to the state playoffs. Years prior to that we had successful teams. The key is having that experience.” Of the five upperclassmen, two are new to the team. Outfielder Scotty Frazier, a senior, is the only four-year player on the team, while catcher Boone McKinney, a

junior is a third-year player. Other returners include junior infielder Jake Scott and sophomore infielders Ricky Mathis and Steven Maupin. All were starters last year. For the most part, positions haven’t been solidified, but

Better times ahead for Hornet softball

Seniors

BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

OROVILLE - Dane Forrester will be the first to admit it’s been a long couple of seasons for Oroville softball. The Hornets won just two games two seasons ago and none last year, but Forrester says that should change with an influx of players that have been through the youth softball program that a few years ago didn’t exist. “When I first took the position I went to one person in town, Shelly Martin, and I talked to her about doing the lower grade levels league,” he says. “She started it up at the fourth and fifth grade level and built them to the seventh and eighth, and I’m seeing those girls for the first time this year. “The past couple of years we’ve had to teach some pretty basic things, like how to hold onto a bat. We’re not having to do that now.” The biggest difference should be in the pitching circle, where for the first time in a couple of seasons Forrester has two pitchers who are familiar with the mechanics of the fastpitch. “Having two of them is big,” Forrester says. “That in itself will make us a bit more successful.” With four eighth graders and a freshman, it will be a young group, but not entirely so. A lot will rest on shortstop Marissa Garcia, who transferred back to Oroville from Spokane after having come up through middle school here. “She’s a really strong player,” Forrester says. “When you watch here, you can just see it. “Faith Martin, it’s her first year at the varsity level, but her mom worked with her for the past four years and she’s shown some strength. Pie Todd is a go-

Of the returning players, sophomore Rachelle Nutt has made a big impression. “She’s improved so much, it’s almost unbelievable,” Forrester says. He’s also been enjoying the team’s attitude through early-season practices, despite many of them being indoors or outdoors in the cold. “This group really likes the sport,” he says. “They’re putting out 110 percent. The other day we were doing some of our

situational drills for the first time, and it was just a huge positive. “Also having the larger numbers brings out a little bit more competition between the girls. I think that will help them play at a higher level. And we have some really good athletes this year. It’s a very athletic group.” Forrester says its hard to predict how the team will finish due to its youth. But he expects by next year, with more varsity experience under their belts, the

Hornets will be a force to reckon with. “The (feeder program) is so important to a program,” he says. “That’s where the turnaround is. I won’t predict districts or state yet. But I think the next few years, we should be a progressively better team each year. And this year we should have a dramatically more successful season than we the last couple of years.”

Tonasket softball seeking that elusive CTL victory Close calls last year have Rimestad optimistic that team is on the upswing BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

TONASKET - None of the current Tonasket softball players have experienced a Caribou Trail League victory. The Tigers came close last season on several occasions, most notably an extra-innings loss to Cashmere. That close-but-no-cigar feeling has the current team pushing hard in pre-season practices to do what it takes to reach that goal.

“They really want a league win this year,” says coach Emily Rimestad. “It’s what I keep hearing during practice. The ladies got a taste of it last year by some of the close games we had. They really want it. “Our goal this year is to win some games, of course...to be competitive in all our games. It is possible if the girls keep showing me what they have in practice.” With just five returning players, the Tigers will be a young squad overall. But in both softball and baseball, it pays to be strong up the middle, and that is where Tonasket’s experience lies.

The team’s only other senior, Cortney Jones, returns at third base. “We have a young team with a few new freshman and some juniors who have not played before,” Rimestad says. “We also have a couple of players

who have played but not with Tonasket. For such a young team and not playing together (before), they are playing very well together now.” Rimestad says that assistant coach Gene Jones and her brother-in-law, Jeff, have been working with the team to improve their batting. “Last year we had issues that kept us out of being more competitive,” she says. “This year I hope to rectify this. With their help, I have really seen an improvement with the ladies.” Rimestad said it has been a bit easier to get underway in her

second season. “The pre-jitters seem to be gone,” she says. “I feel a little more grounded, I know what is lacking where I need to improve in my coaching skills. I know where I need to take the team and what works to push the girls to get to that next step of competition.” She added that the team’s vibe has her encouraged as well. “Everyone gets along real well and encourages each other,” Rimestad says. “It’s a good feeling to see it and coach a group like this. This is what makes coaching softball or any sport such a pleasure.”

Girls team looks poised to make big jump in CTL BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

TONASKET - Tonasket had nearly 50 athletes turn out for track and field this year, giving the Tigers the ability to cover all of their events. That probably won’t be enough for the Tigers to be able to challenge Cashmere for Caribou Trail League supremacy for either the boys or the girls titles. The boys were the league runner-up last season and will be hard-pressed to repeat that feat, but the girls finished fourth in a tight battle with Chelan and Okanogan and

look primed to improve that finish, even with the league expanding by two teams this year. “As the ones that are new to track this year get experience,” says coach Bob Thornton, “we hope to be able to have people place in all the events. We have a lot of new and talented athletes this year so we have a lot of potential as the season goes on to do well as a team.” Lending a big boost to the girls team is senior Emily Mills, who last year was caught in transfer student no-man’s land, able to run on her own in regular-season meets but ineligible to compete in the post-season. “She should do very well in the 100, 200 and 400,” Thornton says. “She had some of the fastest 1A times last year in the 200 and 400 and is looking even stronger this year.” Discus Javelin Long Jump Triple Jump High Jump Pole Vault

State finals veterans key to goal of landing top five finish BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

OROVILLE - Harold Jensen expects a lot out of his Oroville track team this spring, particularly on the girls’ side. And that mainly is because they have already accomplished quite a lot. “The girls should be dynamite,” Jensen says. “It will take a bad day to keep us out of the top five at state. There may be just a 1-2 point differential from eighth to

fourth, so I have no doubt that we’ll be in the top 10.” With a deep squad featuring five returning state qualifiers, the Hornet girls are definitely set up for a solid season. Callie Barker, a two-time state runner-up in the pole vault, will try to break through against her nemesis from Willapa Valley after losing out on the state title by tiebreak criteria last year. “Callie has beaten her once, just not at state,” Jensen says. “She should be able to get back there and hopefully things will be a little different this time.” Sierra Speiker, who as won the state cross country title in two of her three years, will try to

better last year’s state performance in which she took fourth in the 1600 and sixth in the 3200. She also qualified in the 800. “I’d call her the favorite in the mile and 3200,” Jensen says, “and she should place in the 800 as well.” Kaitlyn Grunst had a number of close calls late last season that has Jensen expecting big things.

expects Brittany Jewett to return to state in the javelin and perhaps get there on a sprint relay. He also has hopes that Andrea Perez (shot put), Alexa Werner (shot put and discus) as well as freshman Kayla Mathis (pole vault) could get to Cheney as well. The boys team brings back far less experience. Tanner Smith, who qualified for state in the 200, will try to get to the medal stand this year, while Luke Kindred missed state by one spot in both the javelin and discus. Kindred and Smith were also on a 4x100 relay team that finished one place shy of the state finals.

“Beyond those two guys and a relay, it may be tough,” Jensen said. “I think we have some talent, but not the experience.” The Hornets will once again be hosting the CWL north sectional, which this year will consist of just four teams: Oroville, Lake Roosevelt, Bridgeport and Manson. Pateros dropped down to 1B and Brewster moved up to 1A for this year and next. The road to state will get significantly tougher against the south section at regionals, which feature powerful squads from Riverside Christian and Kittitas.

Tiger soccer looks to take next step

BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

TONASKET - Jack Goyette’s first year back coaching the Tonasket boys soccer team produced significant signs of progress in the program. The Tigers improved from 2-13-1 (winless in Caribou Trail League play) in 2011 to 6-9-1 last year and earning a seasonopening tie (versus Manson) and a season-ending victory (over Okanogan) against state tournament qualifying teams. Goyette is hoping for even fur-

ther gains in the upcoming season. “My experience is that the first year is always the toughest (when taking over a new program),” Goyette says. “There’s a lot of changes. After players are accustomed to the coach it’s much easier to focus on coaching and playing well.” The Tigers will again have enough players to easily field a JV team. The squad will be led by seniors Jesus “Chewie” Alvarez, Oscar Avilez, Joel Cosino, Brayson Hires, Wyatt O’Brien and Ivan Rios. “They’re all solid guys, good

Oroville soccer building for the future BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

OROVILLE - Just keeping a team on the field proved to be a challenge for Mike Pitts last year in his first season as Oroville’s head soccer coach. Fortunately, in Class B soccer, teams often are willing to play shorthanded, thus a number of 7-on-7 and 8-on-8 games kept the Hornets from having to scrap the end of last season.

This year that shouldn’t be a problem with 18 players on the squad. With an extremely youthful bunch - there are just two seniors and three juniors on the roster - wins against more established teams may be hard to come by, but Pitts is looking forward to building a lasting foundation. “We have an awesome opportunity to establish a foundation for the next 3-5 seasons,” Pitts says. “These young players will see a lot of playing time which will benefit them in the long run.” The team would have been young anyway with six freshmen

Tonasket tennis features mix of youth and experience BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

TONASKET - Tonasket’s tennis teams feature an interesting blend of youth and experience, a combination of knowns and unknowns. The girls team features one of the league’s best players, while the boys overall may have a better chance to contend in the Caribou Trail League. Tonasket coach Dave Buchheim is looking for big things from senior Megan Beyers, who finished second in the state singles tournament two years ago but last season, playing doubles with Amber Monroe, fell one match short of state after being eliminated by the eventual state fourthplace medalists from Cashmere. Beyers, in a bid to get back to state, played indoor tennis all winter. “I really expect Megan to well,” Buchheim says. “She should come out of districts (number) one or two and go from there. She’ll be one of the top players in the league. It’s a great place for us to start as a team, but of course, you have to win three out of five matches.” The Tigers do have five other returners, including seniors Claire Thornton and Michaela Newton, as well as juniors Brisa Leep, Abby Gschiel, Maddie Villalva and sophomores Cassie

With no seniors on the squad, other returners include junior Levi Schell and sophomores Morgan O’Brien and Conner Williams. “It’s kind of a mixed team,” Buccheim says. “We have a lot of returning players, but a lot of young ones too.

Hornet tennis under new leadership

Hornets to field full teams for first time in several seasons BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

OROVILLE - Billy Monroe takes over coaching the Oroville tennis teams, and for the first time in several years the Hornets will start the season able to field full squads on both the boys and girls side. Six girls and four boys return, giving Monroe, an assistant at Tonasket last year, a relatively experienced crew to start with. “Every single athlete who turned out this season is key,” Monroe says. “It gives us the opportunity to have full teams. “On the boys side, I’m looking for veteran leadership from Ronel Kee, Joe Sarmiento and Donny Wise. On the girls side, from Menze Pickering, Lily Hilderbrand and Aya Cruspero.” Also returning are Eric Herrera, Ali Miller, Angela Nelson and Maddy Richardson. As when any new coach takes over, there will be changes in approach, and Monroe says it may take awhile for the team to hit its stride. “The main goal for this season is to get better every week and stay positive,” he says. “Fundamentally, I am making a lot of changes to the players’ games and there will be struggles early in the season. The plan is to stay the course and

OROVILLE - It seems to be a recurring theme this year that Oroville’s spring sports teams are on the young side. That is particularly true for the Hornet golf squad, which boasts all of one single upperclassman on its 12-athlete roster. Senior Connor Hughes brings far and away the most experience to the team. He qualified for the state finals each of the past two years, and last season survived the Day One cut and cracked the top 40 for the weekend. “We are young, so our golfers just need to play and develop their golf skills this year,” says Oroville coach DeHaven Hill.The only other returners on either
