Wild will try to bounce back tonight in Game 3

Warriors over Wild

The Wenatchee Wild will spend the next several days toiling at West Kelowna’s Royal LePage Place ice arena, trying to win its best-of-seven BCHL playoff series against the Warriors…

Wenatchee Wild

After winning a crazy Game 1 last Saturday 5-4, the Wild stubbed its collective toe Sunday, falling 5-1. Arch Ecker had the call on the Wenatchee Wild Hockey Network…

Royal LePage Place is a 15-hundred seat arena that wasn’t too kind to Wenatchee during the regular season. The Wild went 1-and-2 on the road at West Kelowna and a win tonight would be the first at this facility in 171-days.

Arch Ecker will again have the call, which you can hear locally on 560AM KPQ or watch on Hockey TV dot com for a nominal prescription fee.

Spring Sports Season is Underway?

Parents of athletes are already aware, but YOU might not be…SPRING sports season is here!


Yeah, you wouldn’t know it by the snow and bitter cold temperatures, but the local high schools have been practicing, mostly indoors, for the past two weeks with games SCHEDULED to begin this week. Of course, everything is subject to change.

Cashmere has already cancelled baseball games slated for Saturday. Several other baseball and softball jamborees that were scheduled for this weekend have been cancelled or postponed.

And since Wenatchee’s Apple Bowl is the only field free of snow in the area, it’s going to see heavy use over the next week. Eastmont’s home soccer match against Central Valley will be played Friday at 3 in the Apple Bowl, prior to Wenatchee’s scheduled game with Mead at 7. Then on Saturday, Wenatchee plays Central Valley at 11 with Eastmont following against Mead at 3. Then at 5:30 Saturday, Wenatchee Valley lacrosse hosts Skyline in its first game of the season.

Van Lith says no spring school sports for her

While those who were in the post season for winter sports are just beginning practice for spring sports, Cashmere’s Hailey Van Lith will not. The all-star basketball player is focusing only on basketball. But first, she says she’ll take a break to recover…

Meanwhile, teammate Grace Erdmann is strapping on her track shoes and can’t wait to make another run at State Basketball next year…

The NCWLIFE Channel’s Spring Sports Broadcast Schedule is out…


We’d hoped to begin this week, but have pushed back our broadcast schedule to next week, hoping for warmer weather for both our gear and our crews.

So it begins next Tuesday with Wenatchee hosting Quincy in boys soccer at 7pm. Then, we’ll be at Walla Walla Point Park (hopefully) for girls softball between Wenatchee and Cascade. We’re back with soccer next Friday as Eastmont hosts Sunnyside at 7. Then a week from Saturday will be our first baseball game (hopefully) as Eastmont hosts Sumner at Dan White Field.

Again, due to weather and field conditions, everything is subject to change. You can go to our website to see our entire Spring Broadcast Schedule as we plan to bring you 24 events on NCWLIFE.

Our broadcast crew, besides Eric Granstrom, will include Sebastian Moraga and Matt Wisen doing soccer, and the Voice of the Wenatchee AppleSox Joel Norman, joining us to do some baseball and softball.

Mariners face San Diego in Peoria

The Mariners continue Spring Training in Peoria, Arizona…


After knocking off Arizona Sunday 7-to-3, Seattle had the day off yesterday. They’ll get back at it today against the team they share their training facility with, San Diego. Mike Leake was getting the start on the mound.

Seattle is just a week-and-a-half from traveling to Japan for a couple exhibition games against San Francisco before opening the season against Oakland in Tokyo March 20th and 21st.
