The Emeralds bullpen was so depleted they had to use their starting first-baseman, Zach Kometani, to throw in the eighth inning yesterday afternoon in an 8-2 loss to the Aqua Sox in Everett. Eugene used five pitchers in the loss, on top of the six pitchers they used at home Saturday in an 11-inning 5-4 win over the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes. The Ems won a 5-1 decision Friday over the Volcanoes as well.
Athlete of the Week
The Sports Club, the Siuslaw News and Coast Radio Sports congraulate Elijah LaCosse as this week’s Athlete of the Week. Elijah finished the State Wrestling Championship in third place. After losing in the first round he went on to score 5 consecutive pins including a rematch against his first round opponent. He was one of only two wrestlers in the tournament to do that and scored 23 points in the 138 pound weight bracket.
Honorable mention goes to another Viking Wrestler, Hayden Muller who placed 4th in the 135 pound girls division.
