​Yakima Herald Republic

ONTARIO, Ore. — Blake Cleveringa and Marquise Clark were a pretty good one-two punch for Yakima Valley on Saturday.

That was still no match for Tresure Valley’s five-man attack.

Cleveringa and Clark combined for 38 points but Treasure Valley had five players reach double figures, led by Dontese Tower’s 18 points, as the Chukars defeated Yakima Valley 79-68 in an NWAC East Region men’s basketball game.

Yakima Valley men halt skid

​Yakima Herald Republic

PENDLETON, Ore. — The losing streak is over, which means Ray Funk’s beard is coming off.

Funk, head coach of a Yakima Valley men’s team that snapped a 12-game slide Friday night with an 82-69 East Region victory over Blue Mountain, reported that he’d already removed much of his facial growth. He had vowed to not shave until the Yaks ended their skid.

“I’ve taken care of the first layer,” Funk said. “I’ll finish things off tomorrow before we play Treasure (Valley).”

Perry Tech students undertake solar project with $74K grant

​Yakima Herald Republic

YAKIMA, Wash. — Perry Technical Institute students will be installing their own solar panels this fall, thanks to a $74,000 grant from Pacific Power for a new solar array for the school’s new building.

The 24.9 kilowatt solar array will provide hands-on training to students in the electrical and instrumentation programs, said instructor Ron Zike. The produced power will be sold to the utility.

“We’re trying to bring solar to our students,” Zike said. “We’re mainly doing it because we’re trying to stay on top of new technology. We’re a high-tech school, so we applied for the grant and we got it.”

Zike said that students will also be able to track the power output of the panels remotely and compare them with the system installed recently at Yakima Valley Community College and other solar systems around the region.
