* 1990 -- It was reported that five Tri-City players grabbed the top five spots in the Washington State Cribbage Championships this past weekend. Richland residents Dee Crittenden, Leon Christie and Paul Carr finished in spots 1-3 in the two-day tournament at the Tower Inn in Richland. Kennewick's Ken Cochlin and Dave Anderson finished fourth and fifth.

* 1981 -- Hanford's style of play wasn't exactly spectacular, but it was more than enough as the Falcons clobbered Grandview 60-14 in a Mid-Valley girls basketball game at the Hanford gym. The victory -- coupled with Ellensburg's 48-46 upset of Wapato -- gave Hanford (14-1) the league title. Kara Price paced the Falcons with 16 points, Trish Nolan had 11 and Janet Thompson scored nine.
