THE DALLES Cherry City Crush softball team comes together after taking top honors in a 18U-A tournament in the Bronze bracket this past weekend in Aloha. The members are (pictured from left to right, front row), Grace Helyer, Morgan Triperinas, Hannah Harris and Ruthie Ford. In the back row are (in back row, from left to right), Maddy Bradford, Morgan Goslin, Jojo Karr, Jess Karr, Lori Cimmiyotti, Katie Helyer and Timarra Roth. They went 2-0 after a winless pool play round and won the championship by 4-1.
The Dalles wrestler Dusty Dodge needed a solid weekend performance to vault him to a newer level.
He did just that.
Dodge reeled off several falls, decisions and major decisions to end up with second-place recognition in the Oregon State Freestyle and Greco Roman championship match, but he could not get over the final hurdle, as he secured second place in state to punch a ticket to the upcoming Regional and National tournaments.
He is currently in heavy training for the Western Regionals in Pocatello, Idaho, which runs from June 18-22.
Just a few days later, Dodge makes a trip to Orem, Utah for Nationals from June 24-26.
In order to make this monumental trip, Dodge is in need of traveling funds to help with costs for both events.
As a fundraiser, Dodge is selling boxes of freshly-baked Krispy Kreme doughnuts and will be delivering this Friday and Saturday, June 14-15 for one dozen of the regular glazed doughnuts.
Costs are $10 for each box.
