Clatsop County was well-represented with riders at the recent State Fair, as teacher Brittany Israel took eight girls to the Oregon State Fair 4-H competition in Salem, and returned with several awards.

“These girls worked so hard and represented Clatsop County very well,” Israel said. “We went to state with eight girls and nine horses. Couldn’t be prouder and can’t wait for next year.”

Bellingham 3, Corvallis 2

BELLINGHAM, Wash. — Astoria’s Marc Gallegos had two of Corvallis’s six hits and scored a run, but it wasn’t enough for the Knights Monday night, as Bellingham scored a 3-2 win over Corvallis in the third and deciding game of the West Coast League Championship Series, played in front of 2,821 fans at Bellingham’s Joe Martin Field.

After dropping Game 1 Aug. 15 at Corvallis, Bellingham bounced back with two straight wins at home to take the series.

Corvallis catcher Logan Ice had two hits and drove in both runs for the Knights, with a two-out single in the fourth inning that scored Dalton Kelly and Gallegos. Bellingham scored all three of its runs in the third.

Corvallis had the tying run at second base with one out in the ninth inning but failed to score.
