It was the best week of the season for the Cascade Kodiaks, despite a loss to Cashmere. The Kodiaks picked up wins against Wahluke and Omak to improve 3-10 on the season.

With the non-league games now complete, the Kodiaks have only CTL opponents from here on out.

Cascade opened league play at home against Cashmere on Jan. 13. The Kodiaks played a fairly decent first half, trailing 11-8 in the first quarter. The home team came back with a solid second quarter, outscoring the Bulldogs 15-6.

The Kodiaks led 23-17 at the half.

But once again, those third quarter struggles continued to plague the young Kodiaks. Cashmere outscored Cascade 19-2 in the third quarter, to go up 36-25.

Cascade earns victory over Cashmere at Chelan Double Dual
The Cascade Kodiak wrestling team earned hard fought victory over rival Cashmere at the Double Dual wrestling match at Chelan on Jan. 15.

The Kodiaks lost to Chelan 52-15. Cascade Head Coach Jesus Sandoval said there were some injured wrestlers out that could have given them more team points.

In their second match against Cashmere, the Kodiaks won 36-24. Sandoval said he was very impressed with 170 pounder, Tre Smith.

"Our varsity 170 pounder, James Sandelin, is injured and wasn't able to wrestle, so Tre Smith took his spot and went on the mat to get the job done," Sandoval said. "Tre won both of his matches. Against Cashmere, he faced Zack Traikovich, whom he had wrestled two weeks ago at the Eastmont tournament and won after a fourth overtime. Tre dominated the match with a final score of 9-3."

Cascade drops tough game to Cashmere
The Cascade Kodiak girls' basketball team continues to show they are a solid team, but with the state's number one team in their league, going to State is long shot, at best. But those are realities of a four team league, which everyone knows.

The Kodiaks faced up with number one Cashmere on Jan. 13 in Cashmere. The Bulldogs, behind probable league MVP Breanne Knishka, stormed out 17-8 first quarter advantage, then expanded the lead to 39-19 at the half.

"Very slow start for our Cashmere game. They slowly pulled away from us to build a 20 point halftime lead," said Cascade Head Coach Mike Barich. "Their press gave us some fits and we could not take advantage of their foul trouble. We were in the double-bonus by the end of the first quarter but did not take the ball to the hoop enough to take advantage of their foul trouble."

Cascade played Cashmere pretty even in the third quarter, but were still 21 points down, 55-34. The Bulldogs increased the advantage in the forth quarter, and won 68-43.

Cascade's tough non-league schedule has taken a toll
The season might look different had the Kodiaks held on in some of their close games. But the last three games were anything but close as the team fell to 1-9 on the season, with league play starting this week.

Because there are only four teams in the Caribou Trail League, the Kodiaks are playing 11 non-league games. The other league teams have struggled as well. Omak is 0-6, Cashmere 3-6 and Chelan 3-7. It is probably a down year for the league, but at the same time, the non-league competition has been tough.

Cascade hosted Cashmere on Jan. 13. Results were not available before press time.

"Cashmere is going to be a tough opponent, but our boys will be up for the challenge. They have a lot of balance on their team," said Micah Rieke, Cascade head coach. "Their starting five can all score. We have two home games at Cashmere this year and it's always a fun atmosphere to play in."

Kodiaks get big game from Daley, drop a close one to Naches
In two victories over Cle Elum recently, the Cascade Kodiaks won despite being out-shot and out-rebounded by the opposition. The tables were turned on the Kodiaks on Jan. 6, when they lost 52-51 at Naches Valley despite out-shooting and out-rebounding the Rangers.

Cascade shot 43 percent from the field, versus 38 percent for Naches Valley. The Rangers did put up 16 more shots. The rebounding edge was even more stark. The Kodiaks out-rebounded 42-20.

Head Coach Mike Barich chalked up the loss to a bad second half. The Kodiaks forged to an eight point first quarter lead, 18-10. Cascade led 32-18 at the half.

Naches Valley cut into the lead in the third quarter, outscoring Cascade 18-8. Going into the fourth quarter, the score was 40-36 with the Kodiaks leading.

Kodiaks finish 10th at home Bavarian Wrestling Tournament
It was a great turnout for the second annual Bavarian Wrestling Tournament at Cascade High School last Saturday. Eleven teams from all over eastern Washington came to compete.

"It was a great success; we had 11 teams, including some 4A schools. With this many teams, we had a few 16 man brackets which made the weight classes very competitive," said Jesus Sandoval, Cascade head coach.

It was not a great tournament for the Kodiaks, mainly because too many wrestlers were not able to participate. Cascade finished in 10th place.

"As a team, this wasn't the best tournament for us. We had many injured wrestlers which affected our team score. We have six injured wrestlers on the team right now. These injuries definitely affect small schools like ours," Sandoval said.

Kodiak boys pick up first win of the season over Eatonville
The non-league schedule has not been kind to the Cascade Kodiak boys' basketball team. The Kodiaks fell to 1-7 on the season with losses last week to Liberty Bell and Cle Elum. But the team did pick up their first win of the season against Eatonville on Dec. 30 at the Cascade Christmas Tournament.

The Kodiaks opened the tournament on Dec. 29 against Liberty Bell. The Lions jumped out to a 19-9 first quarter lead, but Cascade came back in the second quarter. Liberty Bell led 32-29 at the half. The Lions extended their lead after a close third quarter, 42-37.

Cascade made a run in the final quarter but could not get over the hump, losing 49-47.

Cascade girls riding five game win streak
It was a good week for the Cascade Kodiak girls' basketball team, as they won three games, over Liberty Bell and Cle Elum twice. The team has now won five in a row.

At the Cascade Christmas Tournament on Dec. 29, the Kodiaks opened play against Liberty Bell, winning 46-29.

"Pulled my starters at end of third quarter. Score was closer than game dictated. Gave me an opportunity to play the younger kids. We haven't played back to back games. It was a pleasant surprise," said Mike Barich, Cascade head coach.
