The Dunsmuir Tigers volleyball team took over sole possession of second place in the Evergreen League with a 3-1 win over the Butte Valley Bulldogs on Tuesday night in Dunsmuir, or maybe they already had it. It’s hard to tell looking at the standings on MaxPreps because some of the teams don’t bother to report scores in a timely manner.
Dunsmuir won the first game of the match, 25-11. Butte Valley rebounded with a 25-21 win in game-two, and then pushed the Tigers to extra points in game-three. Dunsmuir, however, prevailed with a 31-29 win. The Tigers closed out the match with a 25-16 game-four victory. (more…)Share on Facebook

The Dunsmuir Tigers didn’t really know what to expect from the Whittell Warriors of Zephyr Cove, Nev. The Warriors were only 1-3 coming into the game, but the strength of their opponents was an unknown, as well. Whatever Whittell had, it didn’t take the Tigers long to figure it out, on Saturday at Dunsmuir City Park.
Dunsmuir led 14-0 at the end of the first quarter, and 44-6 at the half. The Tigers tacked on 20 more points in the second half, for a 64-6 win.
Next week’s game figures to be much more of a challenge for Dunsmuir, as they host the also undefeated Redding Christian Lions. The teams met twice last year in Redding. The Lions won the regular season game, 24-16, but the Tigers won the section championship tilt, 34-15.

The Butte Valley Bulldogs arrived at Dunsmuir City Park looking for an upset win over the the defending section champion Dunsmuir Tigers. After the first Bulldog possession, it looked like Butte Valley might just spoil the Tiger Homecoming. However, after falling behind 7-0, the Tigers posted the next 42 points for a 42-7 win.
Dawg Bobby Vaughan took the opening kickoff back to the Dunsmuir 48-yard-line. Two runs by Trevor Robertson resulted in two first downs and the ball at the Tiger 26. Vaughan ran to the 19, and then tossed a touchdown strike to Robertson on the next play. Bodie Vaughan added the extra point, giving the Dawgs a 7-0 lead, with 10:05 left in the opening frame.
Dunsmuir drove to just inside the Butte Valley 5-yard-line on its first possession, but turned the ball over on downs.
The Tigers set up shop on their own 46 following a Bulldog punt. A Chase Sordahl run and a pair of Dayton Pepperdine runs moved the ball to the Butte Valley 23. Tiger quarterback Brian Taylor connected with Sordahl for a first down just inside the Dawg 10-yard-line. Two plays later, Pepperdine dove into the end zone. A fake PAT play, with CJ Palmer on the receiving end of a 2-point conversion pass, put the Tigers in the lead 8-7. (more…)Share on Facebook

Opinion by Ray Wolf
Okay, I’m not going to lie. I usually consider going to track and field meets the equivalent of watching grass grow, or on a really good day, paint drying. However, there is one exception–the NSCIF championships. That’s the meet where you see the best of the best the North Section has to offer. It’s the day for awesome achievements, monumental upsets, and sometimes bitter disappointment.
Overall, Siskiyou County athletes did very well on Friday at West Valley High School.
Yreka’s Jena Turner won the 100m Hurdles and the 300m Hurdles, both in section and personal best times. Teammate Ashley Ensminger took 3rd in the 100m Hurdles and 5th in the 300m Hurdles, missing 2nd in the 100m Hurdles by 1/100 of a second. Turner was 3rd in the Long Jump.
John Whelan of Etna literally ran away with the 3200m title, winning by over 20 seconds. Whelan was the top seed in the 1600m, but decided to scratch to concentrate on the 3200.
Mt. Shasta’s Janelle Jaegel won the Pole Vault. Siskiyou County athletes also finished 2nd, 3rd and 5th, with Liz Henson (Yreka), Kara Jackson (Yreka), and Elizabeth Ebrahimy (Weed).
Jaegel and Whelan won the 2013 Norm Mackenzie sportsmanship award
David Sellens III from Yreka was the favorite for the Discus, and wound up 3rd. Sellens, however, bounced back with an upset in the Shot Put, finishing 1st. Dunsmuir’s Jeff Rhoades was second in the Shot Put, and Arturo Villegas (Yreka) finished 5th in the Discus.
A Siskiyou County athlete didn’t win the boys Pole Vault, but the county did grab 2nd -5th place, with Mt. Shasta frosh Garrett Bryan in 2nd with a school record vault. Yreka’s Anthony Whitaker and Thomas Bigelow were 3rd and 4th. Max Michelon from Weed was 5th.
Eli Champman of Mt. Shasta earned a couple of 3rd place finishes, in the 100m and 200m races, despite a bothersome hamstring.
I also want to give a shout out to the Tulelake 4×400 Relay team, which finished 5th. It’s tough for a small school to medal in the relays because it takes four fast runners not just one–something that gives the big schools with much larger talent pools a huge advantage. Nice job Honkers (Dylan Miller, Ansoni Hernandez, Junior Idrogo, Logan Herman).
Other Siskiyou County medalists are listed in the results below.
Event winners qualified for the CIF State Finals. The top five in each of Friday’s events earned medals. (more…)Share on Facebook
