On April 26, the Chelan Golf team traveled to Leavenworth Golf Club to take on the Cascade Kodiaks. “Conditions were beautiful other than a few gusts of wind,” reported Coach Kirk Einspahr. “The predicted rain, snow and cold weather held off for the day.”


The Chelan boys scored a decisive 333 to 371 victory over the Cascade boys. Cristian Krumbah and Ian Cowell were co-medalists at the match, each shooting a 7-over par 78. Zach Burchett also had a great day on the course, shooting his season-best with an 83.


On the girls side, only the first group of ladies finished all 18 holes. Sam Cooper took medalist honors with a 95 and Cascade’s Amanda Howard stroking a 102. Chelan’s freshman Quinn Cooper had a 109. Junior Lexi Burchett had a great day with a 49 on the first nine.


Chelan’s next competition is a non-league match at home on Thursday, April 28, with Quincy, followed by a tournament for the girls in Chewelah on Friday. Chewelah is also the location for Bi-District qualifying for State.




Chelan soccer team traveled to Cashmere to take on the Bulldogs on April 26. “After a game full of high intensity and aggressive play, Chelan prevailed and beat the Bulldogs 3-2” wrote Assistant Coach Jim Broome.


Cashmere got the first goal in the eighth minute of the game. Chelan's Eleazar Galvan scored the Goats' first goal in the 32nd minute when he put the ball in the upper corner of the far post on a 25-yard free kick.  Freshman defender Julio Vera got Chelan’s second goal in the 47th minute. 


Cashmere tied the game at 2-all in the 63rd minute, but four minutes later, senior captain JJ Ramirez gave Chelan the lead for good.


Both teams played very tough for a full eighty minutes. We would like to applaud Isaac Perez who again had to play goalkeeper because of the injury Ruben Medina experienced against Cascade. Isaac did a great job at goal and is starting to get his form back. Jorge Barajas and Edy Bahena also played important defensive roles for Chelan.  Both played aggressive games and won many 50-50 balls in the air.


On Saturday, April 23, Chelan played Cascade in Leavenworth and won the match 2-1 in a golden goal overtime.


Chelan played a great passing game, but Cascade found the back of the net first in the 5th minute of the game. In the 14th minute, Chelan's Isaac Perez found the back of the net to tie the game.  Shortly after Isaac scored his goal, Chelan goalkeeper Ruben Medina was injured when he came out to make a save and got kicked in the hand. Ruben had to leave the game soon after that save and Isaac Perez replaces him as Chelan’s goalkeeper. “Isaac did a great job in goal and really stepped up and did what the team needed him to do at goal.”


At the end of 80 minutes the score is still tied at one.  The teams ended the first five minute overtime still tied. Two minutes into the second overtime, senior captain JJ Ramirez sent a beautiful cross to sophomore Ray Galvan who was wide open on the other side of the field. Galvan trapped the ball down and kicked a beautifully driven ball near post right past the Cascade goalkeeper to win the game.


Chelan’s JV also won 3-0.


Chelan is now 10 and 1 overall and still undefeated in league play.


On Thursday, April 21, Manson got revenge from Chelan’s early win and beat Chelan in a hard fought, close non-league match 3-2.




Chelan’s tennis team played Cashmere on Tuesday, April 26, in Cashmere. “The girls lost to the undeafeated Cashmere girls by a very close score again,” stated Coach Marty Rothlisberger. “We’ll take another crack at them in the (upcoming) District Tournament.”


Rothlisberger is hoping that the girls can win a few more points in those close games.
