The Mariners Care Community Tour was in Wenatchee yesterday. Players Austin Nola and Matt Festa and the Voice of the Mariners Rick Rizzs shared the message of dreaming big with students and John Newberry Elementary School. Later, the trio answered all types of questions from the audience at Pybus Public Market…
I had a chance to sit down with each and ask more baseball-related questions, including about the youth movement underway…
We’ll have more with Austin Nola and Matt Festa tomorrow. You can see all three of my interviews in their entirety on our website.
Cashmere girls dominate without Van Lith
Taking a look at the Les Schwab Prep Scoreboard in high school basketball last night…
Cashmere dominated Cascade 58-to-8 even without the services of Hailey Van Lith. Hailey sat out last night’s game after being banged up in the holiday tournament in Portland.
Also last night, it was Omak edging Chelan 39-36. And Tonasket topped Manson 60-to-24.
The Cashmere boys finished the first half of Caribou Trail League play undefeated with a 69-50 win over Cascade. Sam Phillips paced the Bulldogs with 17-points while brother Nate chipped in 15-points.
Tre Marchand scored 26-points to lead Omak to a 53-45 win over Chelan. The Goats were led by the 12-points of Cade Christopherson. Chelan Coach Jeff Pearl said, “we need to find other ways to score when our perimeter shots aren’t falling. Our last two games we’ve failed to figure out how to do that.”
In B-league play, Manson topped Tonasket 54-36.
