The Eugene Emeralds took an early advantage in the West Divisional playoff of the Northwest League last night with an 8-3 win over the Vancouver Canadians. Jace Peterson nearly hit for the cycle… opening with a home run, then adding a double and a triple to lead the way. Game two of the best-of-three series is tonight at PK Park in Eugene.
Athlete of the Week
The Sports Club, the Siuslaw News, and Coast Radio Sports congratulate sophomore soccer standout Jason Garcia as this week’s Athlete of the Week. Jason scored a goal and had 2 assists in Saturday’s standoff against Waldport. Coach Londi Tomaro said Jason’s work in the midfield to win and maintain possession of the ball helped to keep Waldport at bay and kept the game close. His efforts have been instrumental in Siuslaw’s 6-0-1 season.
Honorable mention goes to senior cross country runner Hannah Rannow who exhibited strength and stamina in her strong second place finish at the Paul Mariman Invitational on Saturday.
