Chelan hosts first and only home track meet


Coach Erik Romero reports:


Thank you to everyone that showed their support for our Chelan Track Student Athletes this past Thursday. The weather kept up enough for us to host a great night of competition. It started out as a warm early afternoon with some wind coming in after about 5:30 pm.

This was our Senior Night, even though it was early in the year, we held since we only have one meet a year at our facility. We had 9 seniors and I am happy for all of their accomplishments. The Seniors are as follow

Javier Pastor, Hunter Lehmbecker, Matt Smith, Javier Torres, Caleb Dodge, Jacob Bekel, Braden Williams, Olivia Nygreem and Ava Dickes. 

They have all done a lot for our program and school community.

 Boys Results:

 Three boys in the 110 High Hurdles; Antonio Cazarez, Cameron Manda and Guage Culver. Toni got 4th, Cameron was 3rd and Gauge was 5th. Their times were Manda – 20.84, Toni – 21.06, Culver – 23.31.

 Skyler Gordon ran a 12.5 in the 100 meter dash.

 Antonio Cazarez was 3rd for us in the 300 meter hurdles with a time of 49.75. 

We had two Chelan athletes place 2nd and 3rd in the Pole Vault. Braden Williams and Javier Pastor. Williams cleared 10 Feet and Pastor cleared 9 ft 6 inches.

Matt Smith got 2nd in two events, the Javelin and  Shot Put. His  throws measured, 127 ft 9 inches in the javelin and 35 feet 5 inches in the Shot.


In the discus, our boys performed very well. We had the top 4 spots. Starting with Kevin Cazarez, Alex Neri, Hunter Logan and Caden Bryant. Their throws were as follows; Cazarez – 109 feet 10 inches, Neri – 99 feet 8 inches, Logan – 92 feet 5 inhces and Bryant with 91 feet 5 inches. 

We didn’t have a number of our kids do their main events this past Thursday. We wanted to make sure that we honored our Senior Boys and had a good time as well. With that being said, I look forward watching our boys continue to get better and perform better each time out. 

 Girls Results:

Senior Girls – Ava Dickes and Olivia Nygreen

 We started off with a 1st place finish from Freshman Elly Collins in the 100 meter hurdles. Her time was 17.10 in her first official HS track meet. She also placed 2nd in the Pole Vault clearing 10 feet and only missing 1st place by a few misses. 


 Molly Oswald finished 2nd for us in the 100 meter dash with a time of 13.62 and Matea Ivory came in 6th with a time of 13.72.

We also performed well in the 1600 meter run. We had three girls get 2nd, 3rd and 4th place. Ashyln Sanderson. Olivia Nygreen and Geo Granados. Their times were 6:33.3, Nygreen – 6:39.36 and Grandados – 6:42.02

We also had 3 girls place in the top 5 of in the 400. Mireya Garibay, Emilie Barnes and Ella Polley. Garibay – 71.74 2nd, Barnes – 72.29 3rd, and Polley – 75.45 5th.

Same goes for the girls 800. We had 4 girls place in the top 5.

With enough girls, we were able to put together two 4×100 relay teams and we finished 2nd and 3rd. It was fun to watch a number of girls compete on the dirt track.

Same as the boys, we held back some of the girls and had some fun before we got to Spring Break. Thank you again for taking the time to come to our meet and watch our kids compete. I hope that you get the opportunity to come and watch at other meets as well.

We look forward to Spring Break, a time to reflect and get energized, before we start the stretch run of SCHOOL and Regular Season for Track. We have a busy schedule coming up. We have three invitationals over three weekends and with two track meets per week; It will make for a busy month of April. That is also what makes it fun. 

I hope to see you all at the Brewster Relays on the Tuesday when we get back from Break. April 11th and 4:00 pm.



Coach Dana Papasedero reports:


 Chelan baseball team took the field on Saturday after a long week of spirited practice to earn two lopsided wins versus a dedicated and committed Omak Pioneer baseball team.

 The Chelan bats were alive all day, rapping out 31 hits in the CTL double header. Game one featured three hits apiece for Colt Corrigan, Quinn Stamps and Drake Bird, plus a long home run by Breckin Sporseen.  All other starters contributed at least one hit each in the offensive hit parade. On the mound, Connor Wilson and Drake Bird combined to allow only one hit and one run to earn the game one victory.

 In game two, the Chelan bats continued to be hot, with Colt Corrigan belting a home run, and Breckin Sporseen adding his second home run for the day.  Kenny Reeves, Gage Estes, Bryson Darlington each added two hits apiece in the offensive outpouring.

 Sam Austin earned the win on the mound, going the distance, allowing only two hits and one run.

 Next up:  Friday, 4:30 at home, a non league game against a strong 2A opponent from Blaine Washington.

It was a pretty spring day for the Chelan Goats who hosted the Omak Pioneers at the Lake Chelan Municipal Golf Course.

Chelan hosted Omak today for our first league match of the season. Weather turned out great for March, and the predicted winds stayed fairly calm with just a few breezes throughout the match.
With very little “course-time” under their belts, Chelan’s boys turned in some great scores for this early season match. Leading the way with honors were co-medalists Miles Grossberg (Chelan, freshman) with a 48-38 for an 86, and also with an 86 was Corbin Morley (Chelan, senior) with 47-39. The team score for the boys was a 386 (Omak did not have enough boys for a team score).

For the girls, Chelan senior Emily Christenson took medalist honors with a 53-56 for a 109. She continues to improve each time out; the other Chelan girls struggled a bit, but nothing unexpected for this early in the season. The Chelan girls had a team score of 483 (Omak did not post a girls’ team score).
This Thursday takes us to a nonleague matchup with Quincy on their home course of Colockum Ridge GC, then a break from the action for Easter/spring break.
