One of the interesting parts of being a small town sports reporter is the ebb and flow of the respective sports seasons.
The spring sports season is especially hectic. It is not uncommon to have 10-15 high school events in a week, sometimes even more. As a result, it is impossible to cover everything that happens during that time frame.
However, the spring sports season is also feast or famine. One day, there will be more stories than it is possible to cover. The next day, nothing seems to be happening.
Golf, baseball, and softball are finished for the year, and tennis is not far behind. Elsa Harris, who is hoping to make a run at the state Class 4A/3A/2A/1A State Tennis Championships in Eugene this weekend, is the lone CCHS tennis player competing. Also holding their state championship this week is the Oregon High School Equestrian Team. Crook County has a pair of athletes competing in the event, which started Thursday and continues through Sunday at the Deschutes County Fairgrounds.
The CCHS track and field team is also still in high gear, competing at the district championships in Ontario this weekend.
However, by the end of next week, the only sport still competing will be high school rodeo.
Alert readers and proud parents have already made us aware of several athletes that have had outstanding seasons. Beginning Tuesday, we will highlight the accomplishments of some of these athletes. If you know of someone with an outstanding achievement, we would love to hear from you. Drop me a line at email@example.com — we would love to include them in our coverage.
