The Dalles Chronicle
In Tuesday's boys game in Moro, No. 13-ranked South Wasco County led 25-20 at halftime and were in front 48-36 entering the fourth quarter, but Sherman went on an 8-0 run, capped by consecutive baskets from Nick Riggs and Will James, and cut the Husky deficit to 48-44 with 4:22 left. In the final half of the fourth period, SWC dug in and pushed to a 19-11 run, 7 of 11 on free throws, to seal a 67-55 victory. South Wasco County made 26 of 54 field goals, 5 of 15 3-pointers, and sank 10 of 15 from the line. Garrett Olson posted 22 points, 11 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and two blocks, and Tanner Davis notched 13 points, six assists and three steals. Oscar Thomas finished with 11 points, six boards, five assists and four steals, and Brock LaFaver added 11 points, nine rebounds, four assists, three steals and three blocks. Wade Fields scored 16 points, Will James tallied 15, and the duo of Riggs and Luke Stone ended up with eight points apiece, as the Huskies shot 22 of 50 from the field, 5 of 13 from distance, and drained 6 of 7 free throws. Playing with six active play- ers, the Sherman Lady Huskies gave the South Wasco County Redsides all they could handle for two and a half quarters. Both teams were tied at 22- all at the 3:24 mark, and then Sherman's Jaelyn Justesen and Allie marker dealt with foul troubles that limited their effectiveness. SWC finished the frame on a 9-0 run, six of those points from Jade McCoy, and in the fourth quarter went on a 12-7 run for the victory. The Redsides hit 18 field goals and went 7 of 11 from the line, as McCoy rattled off 19 points, Destiny Mora- Lopez tapped in 16, Hailey Ocacio added four, and Holly Miles and Jennifer Best dropped two points each. Sherman, which played without Natalie Martin and Mercedez Cardona, made 12 field goals and converted 5 of 15 free throws, with Justesen and Marker scoring 10 points apiece, Cali Johnson tacking on four, Daisy Brown tallied three and Cadence Smith hit for two points.
Hawks alone in second place after their 54-31 triumph
The Dalles Chronicle
With two weeks left in the regular season, The Dalles Riverhawks have won five of their last six games in league action, the latest victory in comeback fashion, 54-31, over Redmond Tuesday at Kurtz Gym. Both teams fought to a 6-all draw after one quarter, but the Panthers used a 13-12 scoring edge to establish a 19-18 halftime lead. Stevens made a few ad- justments in the locker room and the Riverhawks came out hitting on all cylinders for an 18-4 third-quarter flurry to go ahead by a 36-23 margin. In the second half, The Dalles totaled 16 pass deflec- tions, 25 overall, that led to 11 steals, and there were only eight defensive rebounds in the entire game for TD to grab. The Lady Riverhawks, who are averaging 48.5 points and allowing 36.3 in six IMC contests, are 6-0 when giving up 40 points or less in a game this year. The girls did an incredible job of keeping the pressure on, getting deflections, steals, and forcing them to turn the ball over with traveling, throwaways, and rushed shots," Stevens said. Our team, defensively, was relentless as a whole. From our starters to our bench, I cannot choose one defensive player of the game. All eight of them played as a unit. It was incredible to watch, es- pecially in the second half." Offensively, Kilee Hoylman rattled off17 points, a rebound, five steals, five assists and five deflections, and sophomore Gus Decker matched her career-high with 11 points and tacked on three rebounds, four steals and an assist. Lauryn Belanger chipped in 10 points, three boards, a steal, a block and an assist, Jenna Miller whistled home seven points, two rebounds, four steals, three assists and a block, and Rainie Codding added five points, two rebounds and five steals. Key reserves Pearl Guzman, Keisha Oregon, Grace Schatz and Mercy I'aulualo combined for four points, seven re- bounds, two assists, a steal and five pass deflections. Sitting alone in second place ahead of Thursday's home tilt versus Crook County, The Dalles is at Ridgeview with a start time of 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, then hosts third-place Pendleton at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 21.
Road woes continue for TD boys
When playing in front of the home fans, The Dalles boys basketball team is 7-4 and averages 58 points a clip. Get them on the road, however, and the Hawks are scoring 49.7 points a game and surrendering 68.4 points a contest. Tuesday at Redmond, The Dalles shot 10 of 37 from the field, 2 of 9 from 3-point range, and scored single digits in every quarter of play in an 82-27 setback. TD managed six first- half goals compared to Redmond's 16, four 3-point- ers, and trailed 42-14 at halftime. Redmond then went on a 21-6 third-quarter run, holding The Dalles to one third-quarter basket and four free throws, as the lead expanded to 63-20 through three frames. Styles DeLeon put up seven points, three re- bounds, three steals, an assist and a blocked shot, Dalles Seufalemua notched five points and a steal, and Jacob Hernandez tallied four points, one board, one assist and a blocked shot to lead the Hawks. Jaxon Pullen had four points, two rebounds and a steal, Aidan Telles added two points and two rebounds, and Shane Floyd registered two points and a steal. Redmond out-rebounded TD 19-11, with 11 of the Buck boards coming on the offen- sive glass, and TD totaled 22 turnovers and five of 10 play- ers ending up with negative efficiency numbers. Redmond drained 34 field goals, eight 3-pointers, and fin- ished 8 of 11 from the line, as Dylan Moss led his squad with 20 points, 14 in the first half. Javin Westendorf posted 15 points, Garrett Osborn pitched in 12 and Skyler Jones wound up scoring 11 points. The Dalles (7-14 overall, 1-5 league) played Thursday at Crook County, and then hosts Ridgeview at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday and Pendleton at 5:30 p.m. next Friday, Feb. 21, on senior night.
Boys and girls will be in action on Feb. 22-23
The Dalles Chronicle
The fourth annual Gorge Hoops Invitational featured two days of fiery and compet- itive action in The Dalles on Jan. 11 and 12, with 22 boys and girls teams from third through eighth grades from Boardman, Hermiston, Hood River, The Dalles, Maupin, Moro, and Goldendale bat- tling it out for bragging rights and some hardware. Columbia Gorge Basketball Academy pres- ident Greg Cummings has continued on the foundation built for this program, and the tournament has grown in numbers each and every year. It's nice to have so many teams come to The Dalles and play competitive basket- ball," Cummings said. "Many of these teams spend the night in our hotels and spend money in our community. We also provide the very best officials that our region has to offer. They do a great job of controlling the games but keeping them moving along, so we can play every game." In the two-day tourna- ment, there were as many as 10 games played on each court both days at The Dalles Middle School and The Dalles High School. Just a few of the highlights from action last month were three TD teams taking first place in their respective age divisions. South Wasco County's sixth and seventh graders, coached by Zac Hayes, beat Hood River's seventh graders in the finals, and The Columbia Gorge Basketball Academy seventh and eighth grade girls posted a 3-1 record, just to name a few. Locally, Cummings said that this is the biggest year the program has had in seven years, where there were origi- nally 11 kids in the program. Now, those numbers have swelled to 90 boys and girls from third-through-eighth grades, spanning nine differ- ent teams. It is certainly a labor of love for me," Cummings said. But, the time and energy spent watching these kids get better and better every day makes it all worth it. Every year, we have a new group of athletes that make their way to the high school ranks, and every year, the level of talent and work ethic increases and gets better and better." Coaching the girls were Jeff Hodges (fifth and sixth grade) and Lindsay Brock (sixth and eighth). Megan Thompson and Nick DeLeon coached the third-grade boys, Craig Gunderson and Wiley Dodd were the fourth-grade coach- es, Corey Case led the fifth and sixth grade boys, Mike Cates and Andrew Voodre, along with Sarah Carpenter and Jeremy Nesbitt, were the seventh-grade boys coaches, Kameran Sam and Nathan Parker coached one eighth grade squad, and Cummings took control of the tournament-winning eighth grade squad. Cummings has been around coaching his eighth- grade group ever since they were in fifth grade, with some new additions over the past few years. On that roster were Andre Niko, Henry Begay, Nolan Donivan, Sam Shaver, JJ Johnston, Cooper Cummings,
