The Eugene Emeralds trailed by six going into the ninth inning last night in Yakima… they mounted a rally but managed only four runs, falling short against the Bears 9-7. Despite the loss, Eugene still maintains a one-game advantage over Everett in the West Division of the Northwest League… the Aqua-Sox lost to Spokane. The Emeralds will close out the regular season in Yakima tonight and tomorrow.
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.
