OROFINO BASEBALL

 

Head Coach

Scott Tondevold, 2nd Season

Dash Barlow, 12, 1st Baseman

Gavin Christopherson, 12, Pitcher/Catcher

Silas Naranjo, 12, Pitcher/Catcher

Aiden Olive, 11, Pitcher/Center Fielder

A wild and unpredictable 2A State Tournament came down to two district rivals in the championship game.  Orofino defeated Grangeville 8-4 at Pocatello’s Halliwell Park to cap an emotionally draining run to the title.  The Maniacs had to hold by their fingernails in a 7-6 win over Firth in the opening round, and a back-and-forth 17-13 win over Wendell in the semifinals.

In a tournament with such variability and volatility, you need some help on your side.  Luck, faith, whatever you want to call it, there’s no denying that the Maniacs were helped out from their fallen teammate Drew Hanna from the skies above.

Hanna tragically passed away in a car accident in August, just ahead of his senior year at Orofino High School.  The three-sport standout loved baseball the most, and was Orofino’s top pitcher and emotional leader.  His passing left a void that was filled by nearly everyone else on the team, and as the team received their first place plaques, an empty hanger with Drew’s #2 jersey was on the field with the team as a poem written about Drew by an Orofino community member was read on air during IdahoSports.com’s broadcast of the game.  It’s a moment that the tight-knit community of Orofino won’t soon forget.


 

PARMA GIRLS TENNIS

 

Head Coach

Jesse Eddy, 27th Season

 

Key Athletes

 

Maria Gentry, 11, Singles

Natalia Jemmett, 10, Doubles

Tara Johnson, 9, Doubles

Katelin Norton, 11, Singles

Abbi Searle, 12, Mixed Doubles

 

There is no bigger tennis power in Idaho than the Class 3A Parma Panthers.  Parma won its 27th tennis championship a few weeks ago, as the Panther girls routed the competition with 55 points, more than 20 points ahead of second place Fruitland. This latest title also continues a streak of dominance on the girls side, as Parma has won nine of the past ten 3A girls titles.

Abbi Searle teamed up with Peyton Johnson from the Parma boys team to win the 3A Mixed Doubles championship over Sugar-Salem’s Calvin McClure and Emma Weber, 6-2, 6-3.

Maria Gentry took 2nd place in girls singles, falling to Declo’s Jordan Hicks (the reigning champ) 6-0, 6-2.  Gentry’s teammate, Katelin Norton, fell to Hicks in the semifinals, 6-3, 6-2.

The Panthers’ top doubles team of Natalia Jemmett and Tara Johnson also advanced to the finals, before falling to Sun Valley’s Chloe McGowan and Attie Murray in a hotly contested title match, 7-6, 7-5.

Searle is the only point-scorer to graduate from this year’s team which means that Parma’s girls will probably be featured on this bracket again next year.
