Underwood column: Central finding answers, Yaks still waiting

​Yakima Herald Republic

YAKIMA, Wash. — For Central Washington basketball, both men and women, the season has been a revelation.

For Yakima Valley, both men and women, it’s been — well, to call it an abomination would be perhaps, at this early juncture, unduly harsh.

Then again the YVCC men are 2-7, and when coach Ray Funk says, “Our guys just didn’t show any heart or enthusiasm,” after a one-sided loss last week at Edmonds, you get the idea.

The Yaks women, meanwhile, are 2-5. Both programs missed the NWAC Tournament last season for the first time since 2003, and both teams this season are young even by junior college standards.​

Higher ed: Not everyone wants to leave the nest

​Yakima Herald Republic


Nereyda Barajas wanted to leave her hometown of Sunnyside to pursue a college education. But she also couldn’t bear the thought of leaving home.

As she pondered her options, Barajas came across Heritage University in Toppenish. For some reason, she said she had never heard about the private university until well into her senior year. When she applied for the school’s full-tuition Soar scholarship, she prayed for some good news — and she got it, winning the coveted award.

“I didn’t think I would get it,” said Barajas, one of five recipients this year in the second year of the program.
