Subhead: Crook County takes first in all four brackets at four-team girls tennis invitational
The Crook County High School girls tennis team easily won the Madras Invitational on Saturday, taking first in all four brackets at the event.
Crook County finished the tournament with 142 points, followed by Sisters with 95 points, Madras, 87, and Burns, 86.
"We kind of won everything," said head coach Lloyd Rodgers. "But then, a lot of the schools that were scheduled to be there didn't show."
Erin Crofcheck started things off for the Cowgirls, going 3-0 while taking top honors in the No. 1 singles bracket.
Marissa Pope kept things rolling, taking first in the No. 2 singles bracket. Courtney Lindgren of Madras took the first set, but Pope came back to take the second set, and won a tiebreaker to take the match.
Catie Brown and Braiden Johnston continued their strong play at No. 1 doubles, dominating the competition while going undefeated on the day. The No. 2 doubles team of Lisa Pham and Ali Apperson also rolled through the tournament undefeated.

Subhead: Derek Fitzpatrick parked a home run Saturday, but Pendleton claimed all three wins in series
The CCHS baseball team was unable to find the right combination this past weekend. The Cowboys traveled to Pendleton for three IMC games and fell to the Buckaroos Friday 5-0, then were outscored in two contests Saturday, 16-4 and 10-0.
Pitching was a strong point for Crook County (0-9 IMC, 4-13 overall) early in the series as junior Ryan McCarthy pitched a complete game Friday.
In game one on Saturday, junior Derek Fitzpatrick parked a three-run homer in the fifth inning, but the Cowboys fell victim to a Pendleton team that on this day had just too many weapons.

In recent years, the sport of bowling has enjoyed a surge in popularity. The professional mens and womens bowling tours are now mainstays on network and cable television, and more people than ever are participating in the sport at a local level.
Two bowlers who have a firm grasp on the sport are Crook County High School seniors Robert Garfield and Mike Harris. The pair has been receiving honors since taking up the sport several years ago.
Competing at the 11th Annual "Bud" Husted Junior Bowler Invitational in Milwaukie last month, Garfield bested 50 other bowlers with a three-game handicapped total of 740. For his accomplishments, Garfield took home a trophy and a $500 college scholarship.
Harris, who has only been bowling for two years and was competing in this first individual tournament, rolled a three-game handicapped score of 633 to take home the sixth-place trophy.
