Herrera plays with no regrets
INDEPENDENCE — It was 2014 when Central’s boys soccer team fell to Hood River Valley 2-0 in the first round of the state playoffs and Jose Herrera, a sophomore at the time, felt empty. It wasn’t because they lost.
DALLAS — By the start of the second quarter on Thursday, Dallas junior Brycen Grillo was sure of one thing.
INDEPENDENCE — Entering the final week of the regular season, Central’s volleyball team knows it has punched its ticket to the play-in round on Tuesday.
FALLS CITY — Falls City junior Jacob Oberg always enjoyed watching others play football. This fall, he decided to join the Mountaineers on the gridiron.
DALLAS — In a span of less than 10 minutes against Corvallis on Thursday, starting outside hitter Maggie Blair and middle blocker Tristin Savage went down with injuries. It would have been easy for the Dragons to lay down in the third set.
FALLS CITY — Falls City’s football team has been here before. Each of the last two seasons, the Mountaineers have had a chance to make the state playoffs — something they haven’t done since 1982.
DALLAS — Last season, Dallas’ boys soccer team accomplished something it hadn’t in years — winning a match.
INDEPENDENCE — Dallas’ football team fell just short of a victory on Friday night, losing 21-20 to Central.
INDEPENDENCE — There’s a nickname Central senior Zachary Meyer has gotten from his cross-country teammates — one that may not sound all too flattering at first.
