Watch Eastmont Girls Tonight

WENATCHEE, WA – We begin our sports broadcast schedule for the week tonight on the NCWLIFE Channel…
We’ll replay last week’s girls play-in game between Eastmont and West Valley tonight on the NCWLIFE Channel. I had the call along with Grant Olson right there…

That will be followed Thursday with Hockey Night featuring last Friday’s Wenatchee Wild game against the Trail Smoke Eaters. Then on Friday, set your DVR’s because we’re replaying the thrilling, double-overtime play-in game between Eastmont and Wenatchee in boys basketball.

Regional Basketball Comes to Wenatchee High

The Winter Sports Season is winding down and even though we’re already planning for our Spring Sports Broadcast Schedule on the NCWLIFE Channel, we realize there are plenty of folks interested in the high school basketball playoffs…
So, here’s what is on tap for later this week and into the weekend. Wenatchee High School will be a busy place Friday and Saturday with Regional Playoff Basketball. On Friday, the Entiat Girls face Riverside Christian at 6pm in a winner-to-state, loser-out 1-B regional playoff game. Then at 8 in a 2-B playoff, the Oroville Boys face Friday Harbor, also in a winner-to-state, loser-out contest.

Also on Friday at Ellensburg High School, the Brewster boys play Kittitas at 8 o’clock. Both teams advance to the 2-B State Tournament…this is just for seeding purposes and whether or not they play the first day of the tournament or have a bye into the second round.

Cashmere Girls Headline Saturday vs. Lakeside

Saturday features two afternoon games at Wenatchee High starting with the Brewster Girls and Mossyrock in a winner-to-state, loser-out game tipping at 2 o’clock. That’s followed by a 1-A regional matchup between the Cashmere girls and Lakeside (9-Mile Falls). Of course, who could forget the Regional game between Cashmere and Mt. Baker last year at Wenatchee High School, that proved to be Chapter 1 in a two chapter book that would spell out the eventual State Championship…

The winner of this Saturday’s game will advance to the quarterfinals of the State 1-A tournament while the loser will have to play in the first round of the tournament in Yakima next Wednesday. Cashmere and Lakeside will start at 4 o’clock.

Mariners Already Facing Injuries in Spring Training

As the Mariners continue their early season workouts at Spring Training in Peoria, the injury bug has already claimed several players, including pitcher Erasmo Ramirez. General Manager Jerry Dipoto says the team is treating all injuries with a gentle, slow approach.  The Mariners have also lost top outfield prospect Kyle Lewis to arthroscopic surgery to a knee and first baseman Ryon Healy for up to six weeks after having surgery to remove a bone spur from his right hand.
