    Okay, so I have to admit a bit of a mess up. Here’s the situation: end of two innings and the Bears are up 12-0 in game one. It doesn’t look like a Cougar is going to catch a ball, never mind score. Wind is blowing 40 miles an hour, and I’m thinking, “Time to go and check out some different games.” So I did.

    Good choice for the first game of the double-dip, as the Bears go on to win it 17-0, with Dylan Morris tossing a no-hitter (5 IP, 5 K, 3 BB) .

    However, the Cougars came back in the second game and beat the Big Bad Bears, 4-3, behind a complete game pitching performance by Aidan Hagarty. (more…)

    YREKA – The Yreka Lady Miners finally had the opportunity to play softball for the first time this season. Rumor has it that the Mt. Shasta Lady Bears had to be told that the green stuff they were playing on is a thing called grass. Mt. Shasta’s home field is buried in multiple feet of snow, and the Lady Bears prior games, more than a week ago, were on Big League Dreams’ plastic fields.

    Both teams looked rusty, but it was the Lady Bears that managed to get it done in game-one. Michaela Martin led off the game with a double, and scored on a double steal.

    Yreka answered in the bottom half of the first inning. With one out, Lacie Landrum singled and then stole second base. She scored on a Mt. Shasta error, tying the game, 1-1.

    Yreka all but handed the Lady Bears three runs in the top of the second inning, on two walks, four errors, and a passed ball. The lone Mt. Shasta hit in the inning came off the bat of Tori Weatherford. All three outs in the inning were recorded by Yreka pitcher Tianna Cruz via strike outs.

    The Lady Miners battled back with two runs in the bottom of the second inning. Abby Hansen led off with a walk, and went to second on a sacrifice bunt by Riva Martin. An error on the play allowed Martin to reach first base. Hansen scored on a single by Cruz, and Martin scored on a Rachel Luetke base hit, making the score 4-3 in Mt. Shasta’s favor.

    The Lady Bears took advantage of four hit batters in the top of the third inning, including the first three to step into the batter’s box. Martin had the only Mt. Shasta hit of the inning, an RBI single. Yreka went down in order in its half of the inning, leaving Mt. Shasta with a 7-3 lead.

    After the Lady Bears were retired 1-2-3 in the top of the Fourth inning, Yreka edged closer with a pair of runs in the bottom half. A Cruz double drove in Landrum, who had been hit by a pitch. Cruz scored on an error, to make it 7-5. (more…)

    KCWH ImpactOnce again, there’s no games to cover due to rain and snow. The good news is it finally gives me the time to do the Winter Sports Impact Player Awards.

    If you think you should have been on the list and you aren’t there are a few possible reasons why not. I didn’t see you play enough times; you already got the award in a different sport; I think your best is yet to come this year. Other things that keep players off the list are: getting in significant trouble in or out of school; quitting any team during the current school year; missing multiple practices; and pretty much anything else that just isn’t right.

    The way to get on the list is to play hard, work hard, play clean, and live life right.

    Boys Basketball

    Jake West, Weed

    There’s no way you can talk about Siskiyou County boys basketball without starting with Jake West. Not only did he lead in scoring, rebounding, assists, and blocks for the Shasta Cascade League champion Weed Cougars, his knowledge of the game far surpasses what a high school player should have. If he doesn’t eventually become a coach, a group of kids somewhere will be missing out.

    Mykeil White, Weed

    White was the man in the paint for the Cougars. He’s strong with insane moves, and more than once took over a game.

    Tim Jaegel, Mt. Shasta

    Jaegel was pretty much Mr. Everything for the Bears—scoring, defense, hustle. He’s definitely one of the top athletes in Siskiyou County.

    Collin Lattanzio, Dunsmuir

    I only saw Dunsmuir a few times this season, and wasn’t 100% sure on who the choice should be. Lattanzio was at the top of my list. But, I decided to text Coach Kale Riccomini and ask if Lattanzio was the right choice. “Without a doubt,” was the reply. Enough said. (more…)
