Kyle Woodward scored twice and went 2/3 at the plate.

YrekaTransferNewThe Miners found themselves down three runs going into the bottom of the fifth inning at Hibbard Field on Thursday, but back-to-back three-run innings by Yreka led to a 6-4 come back victory over the Cascade Christian Challengers.

The Challengers (8-7) took advantage of a hit and an error in the fourth inning to put the first run of the game on the board.

Cascade added two more runs in the fifth on three hits and an error, for a 3-0 lead.

Kyle Woodward led off the home half of the fifth with a base hit, and moved to second on a ground out by Tanner Marks. A single from Andrew Reed put runners on the corners. With two down, Dawson Fraley drove in Woodward with a base hit. A single by Cale Cool brought home Reed. Fraley found his way home on a hit by Quinn Horvath, tying the game 3-3. (more…)

Lions sweep Bears, take control of SCL

Rob Thom tossed a eight inning complete game for Etna.

Rob Thom tossed a eight inning complete game for Etna.

Game-one of Tuesday’s double dip between the Etna Lions and Mt. Shasta Bears was everything that it was expected to be. Lion Rob Thom and Bear Kaden Riccomini matched each other pretty much pitch for pitch for the first seven innings.

However, with Riccomini out of the game in the 8th inning, the Lions put up four runs for the win. Thom went back out for the bottom of the eight to secure the complete game victory.

Mt. Shasta held a 1-0 advantage on its home field at the end of five innings in game-two. The teams were tied 2-2 after six, but Etna scored four runs in the seventh for a 6-3 victory.

Both teams had chances to score in the first seven innings of the opening contest. Etna had a runner in scoring position four times. The Bears had two chances to knock in a runner from second base.

The Lions had a runner on third with two gone in the seventh inning, when Riccomini left the game due to reaching his pitch count maximum. Mt. Shasta brought in Ian Allen to finish the inning, and he promptly induced a ground ball back to the mound for the final out. (more…)

Spring Jam Tourney champion MTXE. Front row (L-R): Carson Crovelle, Davon Ruiz, Kayden Tandy, Trevor Truttman, Nick Stensether, Coach Travis Robison. Back row (L-R): Coach Todd Robison, Devon Apple white, Randall Hughes

The MTXE elite 8th grade basketball team, comprised of players from all over Siskiyou County, won the Spring Jam Tournament held in the Bay Area last weekend.

MTXE stands for “Mental Toughness Xtra Effort,” according to Coach Travis Robison, who learned the saying from a professional coach in China.

“The teams were all bigger than us. Several teams had kids 6’2, 6’3, 6’4, but our boys just out worked every one else. It’s what we preach everyday in practice,” said Robison.
