Facing three 6A schools and an undefeated 5A Putnam through four non-league games, The Dalles baseball has been very competitive with three of those losses by two runs or fewer, two by one run.
Ready to rise another level in the varsity tennis circuit, The Dalles boys squad swept four doubles matches and claimed three of four on the singles side to secure a 7-1 triumph over McNary Monday in Keizer.
Last year, The Dalles girls golf team combined for a 521 to place sixth at the Riverhawk Invitational, but then cut 62 strokes off their scores by dropping to a 459 in opening-round play at the Class 5A Special District 2 Tournament in May. One event into the season and they have already shattered that mark.
Isaac Anthony dazzled in his first-ever varsity start on the mound. The freshman southpaw held Culver scoreless on two hits, four walks and nine strikeouts across five innings. Once he exited the game, Culver’s bats came alive and Bulldog reliever Tadd Anderson retired 12 in a row over the final four frames to help his team storm back from an early 7-0 deficit for a 10-7 comeback in extra innings Wednesday at Kramer Field in The Dalles.
With only one day of outside practice, The Dalles boys tennis team won three matches each in singles and doubles play to pull off a 6-2 victory on the road in Portland Thursday at Parkrose High School.
The Dalles girls tennis team posted straight-set wins in all four singles matches, and the No. 2 doubles team of Karla Najera and Pearl Guzman added a three-set win to give the Lady Riverhawks a 5-4 victory against Parkrose in Thursday’s varsity opener in Portland.

Unless you know the financial state of the person you are talking to, do not suggest they apply for a Habitat for Humanity house.
Columbia Gorge Habitat for Humanity describe themselves on their website as a low-income housing project. Unfortunately, this leads uninformed people and churches to assume that Habitat actually builds housing. Read more
