Wormhoudt stars in 44-26 loss to Kern Valley; 269 yards running on 31 attempts

September 1, 2012

The Mammoth Huskies fell to Kern Valley, 44-26, Friday night at Gault/McClure Stadium, but it wasn't for lack of trying — especially by senior tailback Tyler Wormhoudt.

Injured a week ago with a sprained knee, Wormhoudt was cleared to play on Wednesday, and boy, did he play on Friday night.

The Huskies' running back picked up a whopping 269 yards on the ground, on 31 attempts. That averages 8.7 yards a carry. He scored three touchdowns, too, In addition, he returned five kicks for 220 yards, totaling 489 all purpose yards.

But it wasn't enough.

It's Pickleball season! Now, what the heck is Pickleball?

September 1, 2012

Each Tuesday afternoon at the town tennis courts, a strange cadre of people, carrying odd racquets and yellow whiffle balls, take to the playing surface.

It is not the U.S. Open.

It is not tennis.

The people play “Pickleball” each Tuesday evening from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. and they’re looking for more converts to the sport.

It is played with what looks like an oversized table-tennis paddle, on a shortened court. It is a doubles-only format, at least under the canopy of trees in Mammoth, and it looks like a load of fun.

Cogan, 25, arrived from Mammoth Lakes from Wisconsin four years ago but went to college in Iowa, playing soccer instead of cross country skiing in her home state.

As an orthopedics technician at Mammoth Hospital, Cogan met Dr. Mike Karch, the mastermind of the Mammoth Biathlon, who has been behind her training, both on snow and off.

Youth Football gets 31-13 victory

September 1, 2012

Mammoth’s Youth Football team does not have uniforms, is short of funding, and has a host of other issues facing the players and coaches this year.

But so far, playing well is not one of them.

The Little Huskies whupped up on Trona, 31-13 last weekend, with two players, Ryder Radcliffe and Ricky Johnson, scoring two touchdowns apiece and with Danny Longino scoring one.

More than that, the team held Trona to just 13 points, which was enough to put wind in their sails for their next game at Big Bear next weekend.
