Football schedules for the coming fall are penciled in and of area teams, only Grangeville has scheduled a Zero Week opponent so far.
Next Level Athlete
Having run distance for the 2017 state champion Prairie Pirates Chaye Uptmor is headed to Caldwell on scholarship this fall, where she plans to study health and human sciences and psychology and, eventually, to pursue a degree in occupational therapy.
Gavin Branson will pursue an education degree on scholarship at Blue Mountain Community College in Pendleton, Ore., with an eye on becoming a history teacher — and towards becoming a basketball coach.
An organizational meeting for Grangeville High School Coed Cheer is set for Wednesday, June 7. 6:30 p.m., at the GHS library.
Noted coach Dave Snodgrass will host the 2017 Camas Cage Camp, focusing on basketball fundamentals, June 5-8 at Bradley Gym in Nezperce.
The annual Bulldogs Tennis Camp will be 1-3 p.m. each afternoon June 13-15 at the GHS courts. Contact tennis coach Kerry McCulley, email@example.com, for more information.
Clearwater Valley’s Kamm and Trayse Mangun played exceptionally, and came closer to a state medal than any other local individual or doubles team at the 3A state tennis meet held May 19-20 at Vallivue and Caldwell high schools.
Prairie’s last race of the day once again proved decisive, with the 4x400 girls outpacing Oakley by more than four seconds to move the team total two points ahead of Valley, into clear first.
Salmon River’s Chevelle Shepherd cleared 10-3½ in the 1A girls pole vault — and topped the state record 10-3 set in 2015 by Kaylee Olsen of Challis.
Trapshooting, golf results.
The young Grangeville teams combined for 20 points in team scoring last Friday and Saturday, May 19-20, at the 2A state track championships.
Bulldog of the Week
Grangeville’s JaKaili Norman placed fourth in the 2A 100 meter dash last weekend — but she said Tuesday, May 23, before the race she had her eye on taking first or second.
Melba and Malad both topped Grangeville last week at the 2A tournament, but the first round loss last Thursday, May 18, unfolded in a uniquely heartbreaking fashion.
It’s fitting that at the conclusion of a rain-soaked season, Clearwater Valley coach Josh Bradley’s Rams snapped one of the area’s longer-standing spring sports droughts. Having reached the state tournament for the first time since 2000, the CV baseball squad won a first-round game, securing a top-four finish in the process.
Being the top team out of the Whitepine League, which had produced the state champion in seven of the previous eight years, came with one big perk at the 2017 tournament: a first round bye.
