Jim Crandall, Palms to Pines Golf Association handicap chair, provided this report about the Friday, Jan 27, monthly golf tournament held at The Country Club at Soboba Springs.

After weeks of rain, snow and the resultant cabin fever in Idyllwild, a record 30 golfers — 26 members and four non-members — attended the event. But while the sun was shining, cold winds were wreaking havoc on the scorecards.

David Hiemenz (course handicap 38) and Chris Kramer (38) tied for first place with net 73s; Dennis Chavez (9) and Pete Holzman (16) tied for third with net 75s, and Robert Priefer (25) and Scott Schroeder (20) rounded out the top five with net 77s.

The closest to the pin winners on the four par three holes were Chuck Alkire on hole no. 4, Schroeder on hole no. 8, Chavez on hole no. 13 and James White on hole no. 15.

For the 2016-17 season, which started in August  and runs through July, here are the current point standings:

Idyllwild’s proud hockey Dad Brian Smith submitted this account of last week’s Wildcats game:

Saturday, the Wildcats hosted the Pasadena Maple Leafs. Four minutes into the first period, Kaleb Boctor started off the scoring for the Wildcats with what would be the only goal in the period. Midway through the second period, Cole Behseresht scored to make it 2-0 Wildcats. In the last second of the second period, Scott Hommel scored, just beating the buzzer to make it 3-0 Wildcats.

The third period was all Wildcats. About seven minutes into the period, Tiffany Anderson scored to give the Wildcats a 4-0 lead. With three minutes to go, Nick Clarke scored to make it 5-0 Wildcats. Then, with seven seconds left in the game, Nick Clarke scored his second in a row, giving the Wildcats the 6-0 win and goalie Kevin Moore his fifth shut-out of the season.

The Wildcats’ next game is on their home ice at 4:45 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 4, at Icetown Riverside.


Justin Nunn, Town Hall sports coordinator, gave this report on scores and standings for adult volleyball.

Due to weather only two games were played

Last week, Tuesday, Jan. 24, Idyllwild Garage and Idyllwild Inn battled it out. Each game was super close but Garage beat the Inn 25-21, 25-20 and 25-20.

On Wednesday, Garage played again and tried to hang on to their second-place spot. They went against La Casita, who was in third place just a game behind them. It was a full battle as Garage won the first game 25-21, La Casita won the second game 25-20, Garage won the third game 25-19, and they looked to finish La Casita off but La Casita came out strong and won the fourth game 25-22 to push it to a fifth game, which they won 15-12 and moved into second place.
