So far it’s living up to its billing. The Cowboy Classic in Arlington, Texas September Third has been promoted as pitting a pair of top five teams. It will do just that as the Number Three Oregon Ducks face the Number Four LSU Tigers cementing the games as one of the marquee preseason games of the year. Oklahoma is ranked number one; Alabama two. Boise State rounds out the top five.
Athlete of the Week
The Sports Club, the Siuslaw News and Coast Radio Sports congratulate Brea Blankenship as this week’s Athlete of the Week. Brea’s personal record best of 19:41 flat in the 5000 meter run in the Warner Pacific XC Classic helped propel the Viking Ladies to a first place finish this past weekend trimming 27 seconds from her previous start and 25.5 seconds from her previous personal best.
Honorable Mention goes to Mia Collins who had 10 kills, 9 digs and a block last week’s win against Elmira.
