Missing an air compressor?

May 29, 2014 Comments off

The Aberdeen Police Department told KXRO that on Tuesday, an officer saw someone walking with an air compressor. Noticing that it was unusual, the officer found that they were not the owner. The compressor was recovered and placed into the APD property room.

APD believes that the air compressor was stolen, and they are looking for anyone who may be missing one. If you or someone you know has recently had equipment taken from your home or business, you are asked to call the Aberdeen Police Department.

The item may have been stolen from another town, and they ask residents throughout the county to double check their buildings.

Callers will be asked to describe the equipment to prove that it is in fact theirs.

Willapa Valley and Pe Ell combining sports

May 21, 2014 Comments off

The Willapa Valley School Board voted unanimously to combine the Willapa Valley Vikings and the Pe Ell Trojans this year.

The schools will combine for football starting in the fall of 2014 as well as baseball and softball in the spring of 2015.

The combination would also bring a league switch as they would play in the Central 2B League which Pe Ell already plays in instead of the Pacific 2B League which the Vikings play in.

Last year with Willapa Valley in the Pacific League there were six teams.

The schools are 22 miles apart.

Grays Harbor Raceway season opener pushed back

May 12, 2014 Comments off

The season opener at Grays Harbor Raceway, scheduled for Saturday, was cancelled thanks to late rain before weather cleared up this weekend.

According to the Raceway, heavy rain last week left the track unusable, and they said that the chances of getting the track in good racing condition were unrealistic.

Promoter Steve Beitler said. “The county, track, and maintenance crews have worked very hard to literally rebuild the facility in the last six weeks. There are still some projects that are being completed and when you couple that with the weather it is obvious that we need to move the start back one week”.

The May 17th Season Opener will feature the NW Wingless Sprint Car Tour, the Cut Rate Auto Parts Street Stocks, the USAC Ignite Midgets and the Outlaw Tuners (Hornets).

Gates open at 5:30pm with racing at 7:00pm.

Lake Quinault and Wishkah create new team in boys sports

March 4, 2014 Comments off

Starting today, there is a new name in local high school sports. Boys in Lake Quinault and Wishkah will now be playing under the banner and colors of the Twin Valley Wolfpack wearing black and gray.

Last night in Lake Quinault, residents and students from the schools met to choose from multiple options for the new team, including name and colors. Options included playing as Lake Quinault/Wishkah, North County, or Twin Valley; as well as choosing between Wolverines, Sasquatches, or Wolfpack. Also put up to a vote were the official colors of the new team, either a combination of both schools or a new color scheme altogether.

Citing low class size, the schools were forced to shed any former Coastal League rivalries and join together to maintain sports for their students. Lake Quinault Superintendant Rich Dubois said that this was the best option for both schools, adding that this merger will last until both schools have the ability once again to field their own teams.

Baseball practices will be split for the schools; 11 practices at Lake Quinault before switching to 11 practices as Wishkah. Games will also be split. Any rain days will be spent at their own schools for indoor practice.

Because of their combined size, the team will move into the 2B rankings. Both teams have already practiced with each other, but will officially play as a team at their first game on March 18th against Oakville at Wishkah.

Wishkah/Lake Quinault merger to be named Monday

February 25, 2014 Comments off

The Wishkah and Lake Quinault boys teams will find out on Monday what they will be called, and what they will be wearing, for the coming years at a community meeting Monday.

Principal Keith Samplawski said that this will be the meeting that decides the near future of North County sports.

Following the announcement that the boys teams from each school would be merging following low enrollment for both schools, the decision was made to combine boys sports starting in March for baseball. Because of the merger, a new name, logo, and colors will be chosen for the combined teams.

Residents are invited to the Lake Quinault School Cafeteria at 6 pm on Monday, March 3 for a meeting to vote on the names submitted by students and community members. Each school has narrowed down the names to 3 choices to be voted on at the meeting.

Wishkah/Lake Quinault merger coming for boys sports

February 12, 2014 Comments off

Rainmakers? Sasquatch? Raiders? Hunters? Pioneers? All could be a future team in North County.

Starting with baseball, Wishkah and Lake Quinault are combining their boys sports.

Wishkah Principal Ray Yoder tells KXRO that in recent years, enrollment numbers have diminished the number of eligible players and Quinault has been facing the same issue.

Because of the combination, there will no longer be any high school boys with Loggers or Elks on their uniforms in the coming years.

The ASBs of both schools are currently running contests to pick the new logo, name, and colors of the combined teams. Beginning in March, there will be a new face for North County sports.

Lake Quinault School posted on their Facebook Page that they are accepting submissions until Friday for look of the combined team.

Instant classic for Myrtle Street Rivalry Game

January 18, 2014 Comments off

The Hoquiam Grizzlies and the Aberdeen Bobcats have their share of classic games and this one was no different.

The Grizzly boys hung on at the end to get the win 52 to 51 over the Bobcats in this non-league contest at Hoquiam Square Garden Friday night. Junior Evan Newton led Hoquiam with 17 points and propelled them to a second half come back with 14 points in the second half.

Newton’s most important point came with 6.5 seconds left in the game when he made a free throw on the front end of a one and one opportunity that made the score 52 to 48 in favor of the Grizzlies.

Newton missed the next free throw and Aberdeen’s Austin Floch, a Junior, drained a long range three pointer with what the referees decided was .3 seconds left to bring the Bobcats within one. Hoquiam would let the .3 flash off the clock without incident and take home the win and force a split of the series this year as Aberdeen won the previous match-up in Aberdeen.

Floch led all scorers with 19 points including 11 in the second half.

Hoquiam Scoring: Blake Kelly 2, Evan Newton 17, Devin Kelly 4, Jerod Steen 6, Jack Adams III 7, Jace Varner 8, Camden Anderson 2, and Joel Brydon 6.

Aberdeen Scoring: Payton Campbell 3, Cole Edwards 7, Addam Follett 12, Austin Floch 19, Jacob Black 4, Lorenzo Ontiveros 2, Aaron Taylor 2, and Chandler Craig 2. Played but did not score: Deon Schlesser and Veek Cheema.
