A whole new Kye

Kye Blaser cut his hair. For nearly two years, Kye Blaser let his hair grow. It was his way of honoring one of his mentors, Robert Winters, who had passed away in 2015. Before each basketball game his senior year he would have his hair braided into cornrows — giving birth to Kornrow Kye. When the Oregon State basketball Instagram account posted before and after photos of his haircut prior to the season opener, former teammates went: “Who is that guy?” wrote Bryan Tapia.

Warriors return to mat with visions of the podium

SILETZ — With three returning state qualifiers, the Siletz Valley wrestling team is back on the matt hoping for another successful season. The Warriors opened practice with 10 wrestlers, with the possibility of adding a couple more once all the logistics hurdles have been cleared. But in that group of 10, three — Patrick Shawver, Joshley Howell and Kenneth Jonston Jr. — all advanced to the state championships, with Shawver finishing third in the 170-pound weight class. Between now and the first match of the season, it’s about making the transition from being in shape to being in wrestling shape.

Eagles ready to soar into a big season

EDDYVILLE — There is a reason that the Eddyville Charter boys basketball team has lofty goals entering the 2019 season. A year ago, the Eagles had a six-man rotation and if something like a player getting in foul trouble arose or a player was getting tired, they were in hot water. Having their sights set on a conference championship is because they have the horses this season to compete for one. “It’s going to be big because we had to rely on our starters to play such heavy minutes last year and it got tough when we got in foul trouble,” said head coach Mike Ulstad. “All those guys are a year old. It will be really nice to give people rest and keep them fresh.”

The long wait is over for Cubs hoops

When the clock struck midnight on Monday, Nov. 11, Midnight Madness ensued. Basketball is back. Both Newport basketball programs wasted no time before hitting the gym and preparing for the upcoming season. It took all of five minutes for a dissatisfied coach to blow the whistle to stop practice and make the players run lines for not communicating properly during a drill. Which, in a sense, was the true sign that basketball has made its return. “It feels really good, I’ve missed it,” said junior Bryan Tapia. “Coming back and bringing back the boys in this atmosphere, getting yelled at again by coach, everything seemed normal.”
