We have good leadership this year so we combine hard wok with having fun. It should be another great season.” In at least one case a personal best would translate into a school record.

record last year and will be aiming to for a state qualifying performance this time around. Three Tigers who did make it to state are back this season. Kylie Dellinger, Cassie Spear and Rose Walts comprised three quarters of the state-qualifying 4x400 relay team and could be looking at a return in that event, as well as in individual events. “Kylie is running well and focused on doing her best in distance events,” Thornton says. “Cassie is looking like she will start this year right where she left off last year in the 400. Rose is strong again in the hurdles.”

On the boys’ side, Ethan Bensing was possibly the best triple jumper in the state that had to sit out the state meet. He finished fourth at regionals to miss out on a trip to Cheney, but his jumps throughout the season surpassed many of those who were state medalists. “After winning league last year in the 400 as a freshman, Ryan Rylie is running stronger than ever and will be pushed by (freshman) Beau Cork this year,” Thornton adds. As always, the goal is to earn a spot at the state finals. “Once again we have a lot of

OROVILLE - When Mike Pitts took over the Oroville boys soccer program three seasons ago, it was a rarity that he was able to field a full team. Many games were played 9-on-9 (or in a couple of cases, 9-on-11) because of a lack of healthy or eligible players. Pitts no longer has that problem as he had 18 players on his roster last year and starts 2014 with a 24-man squad. “Last year we saw a significant increase in young talent which was exciting, but yet challenging thing for me,” Pitts says. “I knew going into last season we would have to be patient and focus on the good things game in and game out.” The Hornets had enough numbers to keep a full squad on the field, but a youthful and inexperienced team managed just one win and struggled mightily against playoff teams Manson and Bridgeport. The Hornets gave up 61 goals in six games against those two teams, but 49 in nine games against everyone else. Their best game of the season was a 3-2 overtime loss to a Liberty Bell squad that finished just one game behind Bridgeport in the playoff race. “We came a long way last year and looking at this season, I have high expectations for our team,” Pitts says. “Returning almost the entire roster from last season coupled with the addition of experienced and new players, our team is poised to make some noise in league this year.” The Hornets return 12 of last year’s 18, including seniors Connelly Quick and Abe Capote, who have been mainstays of the program through its growing pains. “I’m excited to see Connelly

Leonardo Curiel, Cesar Lozano, and Brian Wise, sophomores Emmanuel Castrejon, Daniel Castrejon, Jesus Churape and Javier Castillo, and freshmen Aldo Perez, Robbie Dudley and

Moises Capote. With all of the Central Washington B League programs becoming more established particularly Manson, which advanced to the quarterfinals of

the 2B/1A state tournament - the road to improvement won’t be easy for the Hornets. But that hasn’t dampened Pitts’ optimism. “With the way our league is currently comprised having to

play each other three times during the season, we get to know each other very well,” he says. “That scenario bodes well for our team. We got better and better the more acquainted we got with each team last year. I truly believe this year will be a break out one for us and several years down the road, we’ll look back and say that’s where it happened. “

TONASKET - Tonasket’s boys soccer team proved it could play with the best at times last season. Beating the best was another matter. Going 3-11 in Caribou Trail League play meant there were a few ugly outings. But the Tigers also had an early 2-1 loss to Okanogan, which eventually finished fourth in the state tournament, and finished the season with three straight highly competitive games highly-rated teams, including a 2-1 loss to eventual state champion Chelan (which needed a win to clinch the league title) to close out the season. Cracking into the top half of the league - where the top three teams combined for a 49-11 record (with half those losses coming to one another) and the fourth place team (Okanogan) took fourth in the state tournament - may be a tall order. But the Tigers certainly are getting the numbers to make a go at it as the roster is bursting with 34 athletes. A large number of those are returning, of course, but among those Coach Jack Goyette is counting on to lead the way include seniors Michael Orozco, Tyler Farver, Marcelino RuizMartell, Elias Ramos and Derek Sund. Orozco and Farver play both forward and midfield; Ramos will be in the midfied; Ruiz-Martell has played every position at one point or another; and Sund, who joined the team at mid-season last year, earned the starting goalkeeper’s job with his

OROVILLE - Second-year Oroville tennis coach Billy Monroe senses that excitement about Hornet tennis is building. It didn’t hurt to see some of his athletes out on the courts getting some pre-season work in during a warm stretch in February. “I like to set my expectations high for my athletes and for my program,” Monroe says. “That being said I am really looking forward to this season. The excitement for tennis this year at the school has been surprising.” There should be plenty of competition amongst the girls team for varsity spots as 11 girls turned out, including seniors Kaylee Foster, Aya Cruspero, Angela Nelson, Menze Pickering, Ashley Marcolin and Emily Viveros. Junior Lily Hilderbrand and freshman Lillie Gronlund also played last year. The boy team only has four, but three - junior Joseph Sarmiento, sophomore Connor BoCook and freshman Nathan Hugus - are returnees. “With a full lineup I expect the girls to compete this year with the top teams in our league,” Monroe says. “I know schools such as Pateros and Liberty Bell will have good girls teams and it will be interesting to see how we do. “The boys team, although small in number, is big in athleti-

If all of my players make as much growth this year on their tennis game as last year, I feel that there is a good chance

that I could be taking someone to the state tournament this season.” Monroe is hoping that last year’s growth coupled with this year’s early enthusiasm are signs that the Hornets’ program is

returning to prominence. “I would like to see it return to the glory days of the late 1980s and early 1990s when state champions like the Bargens and Kowatchs where coming out of Oroville ten-

TONASKET - The resignation of former tennis coach Dave Buccheim shortly before the beginning of spring practice contributed to the Tonasket tennis teams getting off to an uneven start and may have kept the number of turn-outs down. But newly hired coach Mark Milner likes what he sees with the team he does have. “We’re low in numbers but big in heart,” Milner says. “Our goal is to get better every day. So far I like the progress and with some hard work, I’m liking our chances of getting a kid or two to State this year.” There is more experience on the boys’ side than with the girls. “Trevor Terris, Brian Hendrick and Walker Marks all have singles experience,” Milner says. “The girls also have experience but will have their hands full with an extremely talented league. Cashmere, Okanogan, Omak and Chelan all have very strong girls teams.” In fact, four of the eight state medalists at the 1B/2B/1A state tournament last year hailed from the Caribou Trail League, including Tonasket then-senior Megan Beyers, who finished fifth. The CTL also boasted the top two doubles teams and three other state-qualifying pairs. The boys went 6-6 in league

OROVILLE BASEBALL Still young, Hornets hope to build on last season

SENIORS

BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

OROVILLE - Two wins may not look like much at first glance, but those victories represented a big step in the right direction for a painfully young Oroville baseball squad last season. The Hornets ended a two-year losing streak with a 19-5 victory over Manson last March and became increasingly competitive as the season went on, including a season-ending 9-1 loss to a Liberty Bell squad that eventually advanced to the state semifinals. The bulk of that squad returns intact this season, including seniors Boone McKinney and Jake Scott, as well as four freshmen that cut their teeth at the varsity level as eighth graders last year. “I look fo rus to improve our record this year by playing solid, heads-up baseball,” says Oroville coach Tam Hutchinson. Senior pitcher/third baseman McKinney was a second-team allleague selection last season, while Casey Martin earned honorable mention for his pitching and outfield play as an eighth grader. “(Senior) Jake Scott is much

The Tigers open the season with five non-league games against area 2B schools before diving into league play April 8 at Okanogan. “We want to work hard, have fun, and play better baseball,” Cork says. “And maybe (we’ll) surprise a few folks this season.”

TONASKET - Wins against Caribou Trail League competition have been hard to come by for Tonasket in most team sports, but none more so than softball. That hasn’t dampened Coach Emily Rimestad’s enthusiasm for her team or the sport as she prepares a young and inexperienced squad for the upcoming season. “With all the new girls we have this year - some who have never played to those who might have had just a little playing time - have come a long way since they started (practice),” Rimestad says. When I first started this year, I wanted the girls to feel like they are a part of the team. I see that they are feeling like a team. It’s great. “I would love to win a couple league games this year. (Assistant coach Gene Jones) and I sat the girls down and asked them what there expectations were this year, and It was amazing to see that almost all of their expecations where them same as ours: win, be a team and play like one.” Of the seven seniors, five - Selena Cosino, Carrisa Frazier, Jonalynn Glover, Tori King and Baylie Tyus - are returners. But only three others - sophomores Vanessa Pershing, Shyane Lewis and Rachel Silverthorn - played last year. Overall there are 10 sophomores and freshmen out of 17 on the roster. The Tigers look to be strong defensively up the middle Cosino returns to cover center field.

third season there. “She is very contemplative and loves the challenge of the position,” Rimestad says. “She can catch for all the pitchers that we have had in the last three years ... she is probably our best baserunner.” Frazier will again be the team’s primary second baseman. “She loves the spot,” Rimestad says. “She is good at getting down and getting double plays done when ever she can.” Pershing played first base last year but likely will see plenty of time at shortstop this season. “She has a drive to be an all around player,” Rimestad says. “You can tell she

go into that as well. “These next few months are the highlight of my year,” she says. “Every year, I feel like I get a little bit better as a coach, and the level of the ladies improves and so does the turn out and the retention of the players. That is what it’s about: to be able to reach the players, build their confidence teach them a little about themselves, a little about you as a coach, give them the passion of the game. You let them know that even if they make a mistake, they pick themselves up, learn from it, and go forward with improvement and confidence.”

OROVILLE SOFTBALL Hornets hope reaching districts last year is just the beginning BY BRENT BAKER BBAKER@GAZETTE-TRIBUNE.COM

OROVILLE - An extremely young Oroville softball squad made big strides last season, qualifying for the district playoffs for the first time in three seasons before losing a wild, 21-19 elimination game against Bridgeport to end their season. The Hornets, who had gone winless the previous season, split with Tonasket in their seasonopening doubleheader to end their losing streak and ended up posting five victories on the year despite fielding a lineup that featured several eighth graders. Despite their youth, the Hornets steadily improved as last

The squad returns 10 from last year’s roster, including four freshmen that already have a year of varsity experience under their belts. Oroville coach Dane Forrester is loathe to talk about individual players - “There is not ‘I’ in ‘Team,’” he says - but the experience the Hornets field this year will belie their youth. Senior shortstop Marissa Garcia - if she recovers fully from a basketball injury - brings a slick glove and solid bat to the lineup. Seniors Gabriela Capote, Cruz Ortega and Shelby Scott also return, as does junior third baseman Rachelle Nutt. Faith Martin is the lone returning sophomore, though Mikayla Scott (a three-sport athlete) and Bailey Griffin both join the squad this year.

OROVILLE - It seems many of Oroville’s up-and-coming athletes are underclassmen. That is certainly true of its golf squad, which not only has no seniors on the team, but has two returning state qualifiers ... both of whom are freshmen this year. Yes, Bryce Glover and Jordyn Smith, who competed at State in Olympia last year, did so as eighth graders. “They’ve done it once,” says Coach DeHaven Hill. “They want to accomplish that goal again.” Lane Tietje and Kyle Scott, a pair of juniors, bring back the most overall experience, while sophomore Blake Rise and Cayden Field, a Tonasket sophomore who will compete on his own in the post-season but with Oroville during the regular season, are the only other athletes that are not freshmen or eighth graders.

“Lane and Kyle have improved each year,” Hill says. “We hope that continues this year.
