The Newberg High baseball team has seen its young season take a downturn over the past several weeks after notching a promising win in a non-league contest.

The Tigers are 1-5 overall, their lone win a 3-1 decision over South Salem on March 23 after consecutive losses at North Medford (10-0 March 18) and versus Grant (7-1 March 21), Mountainside (7-1 March 21) and Beaverton (5-2 March 23) during a spring break tournament at Mountainside High School in Beaverton. Newberg then suffered a 11-2 dismantling at the hands of West Albany on March 30.

Newberg begins Pacific Conference play with a trio of games versus Glencoe, two at home and one away, that begins April 5 (results unavailable at press time).

The Tigers took their undefeated record on the road on March 30 to face Mountainside, edging the Mavericks 1-0 to amass a 7-0 record in preseason non-conference games.

Newberg took on Grants Pass in a doubleheader on April 2 at home (results unavailable at press time).

Newberg was slated to face Sandy from the Mount Hood Conference on Monday at home, then continue non-league play in an April 7 tilt at McNary in Salem.

Although the Tigers finished in a tie with Sherwood for first place with a 318 in the second Pacific Conference match of the season on April 4 at the Reserve Vineyards and Golf Club, the Bowmen were named the champions based on a tiebreaker.

Ray Greiler led Newberg with a 74 and was followed by Garrett Swartout (79), Palmer Thompson (82) and Drew Harris (83). The tiebreaker method required the 93 score of Tiger Liam Flanagan, the fifth seed, be counted against the 86 score of the Bowmen's fifth seed, Luke Stoddard, which broke the tie.

Next up for the Tigers is an April 11 home match at Chehalem Glenn Golf Course.
